Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Computational Seismology and Geodynamics Series, Volume 4.

Russian seismologists have been well-known for their research, particularly in theoretical seismology, earthquake prediction, seismicity model, and in geodynamics. The seismological journal Vychislitel'naya Seysmolgiya is one of the most renowned seismological publications in Russia. The American Geophysical Union has published selected articles from Vychislitel'naya Seysmolgiya (in English) since 1994 in Computational Seismology and Geodynamics. This issue presents the fourth volume of this journal. The selection of articles, like in earlier volumes, is done through the recommendation of reviewers and the Editorial Board after careful review. Computational Seismology and Geodynamics also accepts articles from international scientists. Manuscripts may be sent to any of the members of the Editorial Board.

The Editorial Board of Computational Seismology and Geodynamics wishes to thank the reviewers of the manuscripts in English and the members of the Editorial Board of Vychislitel'naya Seysmologiya for their cooperation.
