Earthquake Zones In The World

In a paper for the Journal of Maps published in 2014 I have analysed and visualised data documenting earthquakes that have occurred since 2150 BC. The following map was part of the material supplementing the publication showing the results of … Continue reading →

Learn about the major earthquake zones on each of the 7 continents and find out about some of the biggest quakes in history.

An earthquake (also known as a quake, tremor or temblor) is the shaking of the surface of the Earth, resulting from the sudden release of energy in the Earth's lithosphere that creates seismic waves.Earthquakes can range in size from those that are so weak that they cannot be felt to those violent enough to toss people around and destroy whole cities.

About the NEIC. The National Earthquake Information Center (NEIC), was established in Rockville, Maryland, in 1966 as part of the National Ocean Survey of the Department of Commerce.

California Earthquake Fault Zones Search Page. California Department of Conservation publishes Earthquake Fault Zone Maps on the Internet. But most of people have difficulty reading these maps., a California Natural Hazard Disclosure Company, provides us a simple California Earthquake Fault Zones Map for Google Map application.

An earthquake is the result of a sudden release of stored energy in the Earth's crust that creates seismic waves. At the Earth's surface, earthquakes may manifest themselves by a shaking or displacement of the ground. Sometimes, they cause tsunamis, which may lead to loss of life and destruction of property.

Following the incidents at nuclear power plants in Japan after the earthquake I was wondering which power stations around the world are near active earthquake zones. With this in mind, I've created a map combining two sets of information: A heatmap of every 4.

Far flung locations such as Japan, Chile and Iran all share a geographic trait: they sit on fault lines, or intersections of tectonic plates, that make them prone to seismic activity.

The 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake occurred in Northern California on October 17 at 5:04 p.m. local time (1989-10-18 00:04 UTC). The shock was centered in The Forest of Nisene Marks State Park approximately 10 mi (16 km) northeast of Santa Cruz on a section of the San Andreas Fault System and was named for the nearby Loma Prieta Peak in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

There are many sources of world time zone data and maps available. I have combined several of them into a single file for Google Earth which will let you easily switch between the different versions and use the one that works best for your purpose.
