Bollettino Sismico Italiano, III quadrimestre 2018, version 1.0 contains 6087 earthquake locations in the Italian region and in the border region in the time span between 01-09-2018 and 31-12-2018. Data used have been recorded by the National Seismic Network, operated by Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV) and regional and international networks operated by several providers. The BSI analysts revised event with M>=1.5 (2131), 16 of them whit a M>=3.5; to locate the earthquakes we used 465 stations which contributed to the locations with 30681 P phases and 22943 S phases. Hypocentral location parameters of the Etna’s seismic sequence were computed by personnel on duty in the seismic survey room at INGV-CT; the BSI analysts didn’t relocated these earthquakes. The Bollettino Sismico Italiano is available in Quakeml format and is described on a 4 months basis by a pdf document, but is also available in the ISIDe data-base for the period 1985-today. Both Quakeml files and pdf document are available at CNT webpage (
