Abstract (in english)
   Seismic activity in the territory of the Czech Republic is currently monitored by a number of seismological stations and seismological network. Macroseismic effects of earthquakes from the northeastern part of the Bohemian Massif have already been mentioned in historical literature as earthquakes originating in the area of Hrubý Jeseník, Opava and Šternberk (Remeš 1902, Koláček 1921, Zátopek 1939). Up to the year 1994, only isolated recent earthquakes in Moravia and Silesia were registered by the Ostrava - OKC (with continuous analog registration) anf the Vranov u Brna - VRAC stations and only strong earthquakes were registred by other stations, for example an earthquake from the Opava region in June 1993 with a local magnitude of 1.8 and 2.5 (Holub et al. 1994). The seismological station MORC [latitude 49°46'36.5", longitude 17°32'33"], with continuous digital recording, was recently put into operation in the close vicinity of Moravský Beroun in October 1994 (Firbas et al. 1994, 1995)
   This sensitive station, built in the frame of the international project GEOPHON, was situated by design at the central area for earthquakes from Opava, Hrubý Jeseník and Šternberk, where a seismological station was missing. The MORC station has become one of the most important stations monitoring microseismic activity and the first of all from the NE part of the Bohemian Massif (Havíř, Skácelová 1996)
