Correlation of magnitude values determined for different wave types recorded by seismic stations in Azerbaijan had been revealed in present work. It is determined correlation between earthquake magnitudes and energy classes as well. The graphic and analytic forms of these correlations had been derived, and features of inclination of mPV and MLH dependence graph for Shamakha-Ismailli zone earthquakes had been determined. In the weak and moderate magnitude domain (mPV <6) at equal values of mPV the MLH values of intermediate earthquakes are something higher than for shallow sources of Shamakha-Ismailli zone. The correlation between magnitude values and released energy had been concluded.
