Investigation of the magnitude-frequency realtion for earthquakes in island arcs has revealed lower values of the slope for deep earthquakes in New Hebrides, Solomon Islands and Japan as compared to the values of the slope for shallow and intermediate earthquakes. A very low value of the slope is revealed for the deep Andean earthquakes. The slope is the same for Tonga-Fiji for all depth ranges.
