Abstract
    Seismicity is considered from a double point of view: its “static” aspect that leads to the seismotectonic conformation of the area, while its dynamic concept aims to the evaluation of earthquake hazard. After having examined the case of the North Sea it is stated that an isoseismal map of the area is still missing and should be undertaken. The occurrence of seismic seawaves in the North Sea has an extremely low probability. Conclusions and recommendations.
