In 2019, there were 13456 earthquakes with magnitude higher or equal to 4. In this visualization, small yellow
) are earthquakes with magnitudes between 4 and 6. Large red spheres (
) are earthquakes with a magnitude higher than 7. In between, the color and size of spheres are interpolated.
Earthquake depth is exaggerated by a factor of 6. The orange lines (
) represent the boundaries of the tectonic plates. Earthquake data from
Country borders feature service
is made available by the Living Atlas. Visualization created
to visualize the actual depth and the exaggerated depth. The list below displays the earthquakes with magnitude
higher than 7 in chronological order.
