Abstract

The Flinn-Engdahl Regionalisation Scheme, also known as the F-E Code, has been used by seismologists for many years to identify and specify regions of the Earth. The Working Group on Regionalisation of the International Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth's Interior (IASPEI) Commission on Practice has the task of defining a new standard for the regionalisation of the Earth. In the meantime, it was agreed that a revision of the F-E Code would be appropriate. This paper presents the 1995 revision and supersedes the F-E Code standard published in 1974.
