A homogeneous and reliable earthquake catalog is highly desirable in seismic hazard studies. This work, the compilation of as complete and homogeneous a main Moroccan earthquake catalog as possible, has been developed in the context of a project to compute the probabilistic seismic hazard in this region. The result shown here is the outcome of fruitful teamwork among several Spanish, Moroccan, and Algerian institutions.

Previous earthquake catalogs that specifically cover this region (e.g.Tadili and Ramdani 1983; Cherkaoui 1986; Benouar 1994), although employed in seismic hazard assessments (Benouar et al. 1996; Jiménez et al....
