Data for the last month is presented as a gif type map. The map covers all of the UK, and the epicenters of quakes are shown by proportional circles. Contrary to many people's beliefs, the UK experiences numerous earthquakes every year, though most are too weak for us to notice them. This map is an excellent way of showing this activity. The maps are updated every month and show UK Seismicity over the last 30 days.
The map shows the recent earthquakes around the globe as red squares, the size of which are proportional to their intensity. By clicking on the squares you can zoom in closer.
A regularly updated list of the earthquakes recorded around the world over the last few days. Only the larger quakes are shown, giving their time, location, magnitude and depth below the surface. You may also choose to view the quakes superimposed on either a world or USA map.
This is an interactive educational display of global seismicity that allows you to monitor earthquakes in near real-time, view records of ground motion, and visit seismic stations around the world. The display is updated every 30 minutes using data from the National Earthquake Information Center. Earthquakes that have occurred within the last 24 hours are shown with red circles. The circles fade through orange to yellow within 15 days. After 15 days, the circles are replaced by light purple dots that remain on the map for five years.
