 An up-to-date earthquake catalogue for Sub-Saharan Africa with homogenous magnitude representation (MW) was obtained by augmenting available global catalogues (e.g. //​ISC-Reviewed//,​ //​ISC-GEM//,​ //GCMT//, //GEM Historical Catalogue//​) with information from local agencies and regional projects, particularly from AfricaArray temporary deployments (//The Tanzanian Broadband Seismic Experiment//;​ //The Ethiopian Plateau Catalogue//;​ //The AfricaArray Eastern Africa Seismic experiment//​). An up-to-date earthquake catalogue for Sub-Saharan Africa with homogenous magnitude representation (MW) was obtained by augmenting available global catalogues (e.g. //​ISC-Reviewed//,​ //​ISC-GEM//,​ //GCMT//, //GEM Historical Catalogue//​) with information from local agencies and regional projects, particularly from AfricaArray temporary deployments (//The Tanzanian Broadband Seismic Experiment//;​ //The Ethiopian Plateau Catalogue//;​ //The AfricaArray Eastern Africa Seismic experiment//​).
  
-The homogeneous SSA-GEM catalogue was then purged from fore- and aftershock sequences and seismic swarms, using the declustering algorithm introduced by Gardner and Knopoff (1974). The declustered SSA-GEM catalogue consists of 7,259 events out of the original 29,803 in the magnitude range 3 ≤ MW ≤ 7.53.+The homogeneous SSA-GEM catalogue was then purged from fore- and aftershock sequences and seismic swarms, using the declustering algorithm introduced by Gardner and Knopoff (1974).

 +===== Seismicity Parameters =====
 +
 +Seismicity in each area source is assumed to follow a double truncated Gutenberg-Richter magnitude occurrence relation (or magnitude-frequency distribution,​ MFD). Lower truncation is arbitrarily assigned to Mw 4.5
 +
 +Gutenberg-Richter b-values have been calibrated for the whole catalogue and independently for each source group. Conversely, occurrence rates (a-values) have been calculated separately for each source zone by imposing the previously calibrated b-values.
 +
 +A different maximum magnitude (Mw-Max) estimate is derived independently for each source group as the largest observed event plus an arbitrary - although quite conservative - increment of 0.5 magnitude units.
