Abstract (in english)
   The relation between the number of seismic events N and their magnitude and/or energetic magnitude is one of the basic relations in the statistics of eaerthquakes and mining-induced events. A detailed analysis of the b-values in the relation log N=a-b log E for the induced seismic events occuring in the Ostrava-Karviná Coal Basin is given in this paper. The least-square method, as well as the maximum likelihood method were applied in solving this problem mathematically. Based on the results of frequency-energy distribution analysis, it was proved that the variations of b-values in space and time do exist, and that these values are inversely proportional to the level of induced seismicity influenced by the various mining activities being carried out in-situ. This statement could, in general, be supported by the fact that lower b-values correpsond to higher seismic activity, while higher b-values correspond to low and moderate seismic activity
