In their article, Yadav et al. (2009) made two major approximations that have a significant impact on the estimates of Mw,HRVD proxies for the catalog that they considered. The first approximation is to consider the unspecified magnitudes equivalent to MS,ISC for all magnitude ranges, and the second relates to estimating Mw,HRVD proxies as the average of the two Mw,HRVD conversions wherever available both from mb,ISC and MS,ISC. They also used a small number of data pairs of Mw,HRVD & MS,NEIC and M...
