        abstract:  The 1988 Spitak Earthquake database is an extensive collection of geophysical and geological data, maps, charts, images and descriptive text pertaining to the catastrophic earthquake in Armenia. This earthquake was unique both in catastrophic effects and in study coverage. Research groups from the former U.S.S.R., U.S.A., France, and Japan studied the earthquake area. The database was developed as a cooperative effort between centers in Russia and the United States. The goal was to provide seismologists around the world with a complete set of data for the devastating earthquake. The database contains practically all material relevant to the 1988 Spitak earthquake and its aftereffects. It also includes the geological and geophysical information collected during the years prior to the event, important for understanding the event. Almost 2,000 files and 170 megabytes of data are contained in the collection. This set consists of textual and graphical information about the earthquake, a "DOS" and "Microsoft Windows" menu for accessing the data, and a User Manual which discusses the data and explains how to use the access software to display and obtain useful information. Briefly, system requirements are: DOS: Requires 800 Kb hard disk space and 560 Kb memory Windows: Requires 570 Kb hard disk space for the access software. The database is static and is no longer being updated.
        purpose:  To provide seismologists around the world with a complete set of data for the devastating earthquake that occurred in Spitak, Armenia on December 7, 1988.
