AbstractIn 1951 the Dominion Observatory began a program of studying the earthquakes of southwestern British Columbia. The present paper lists 150 earthquakes recorded during 1953; this brings to 443 the number of tremors recorded since the inception of the program in August, 1951. The new epicentres are tabulated and plotted on a map of southwestern British Columbia. A detailed map of south Vancouver Island shows all the epicentres recorded in this area throughout the program.
The paper also gives the details of the newly built and newly equipped Victoria station.
