Abstract. The rapid characterisation of earthquake parameters such as its magnitude is at the heart of Earth-quake Early Warning (EEW). In traditional EEW methods the robustness in the estimation of earthquake parameters have been observed to increase with the length of input data. Since time is a crucial factor in EEW applications, in this paper we propose a deep learning based magnitude classifier and, further we investigate the effect of using five different durations of seismic waveform data after first P-wave arrival– 1s, 3s, 10s, 20s and 30s. This is accomplished by testing the performance of the proposed model that combines Convolution and Bidirectional Long-Short Term Memory units to classify waveforms based on their magnitude into three classes– "noise", "low-magnitude events" and "high-magnitude events". Herein, any earthquake signal with magnitude equal to or above 5.0 is labelled as high-magnitude. We show that the variation in the results produced by changing the length of the data, is no more than the inherent randomness in the trained models, due to their initialisation.
