Viewer of the latest earthquakes produced in the world


Earthquake collection conducted by EMSC in the last two weeks around the planet.

The tectonic plates are in continuous motion on the earth, which causes their outer areas to be in a permanent collision between them, releasing energy and producing earth tremors, what we call earthquakes. On the other hand, on the Earth's crust that we can observe, geological faults and volcanoes are the result of these forces on a larger scale, resulting in these seismic movements. The collection of data around the world, such as those provided by the Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Centre, ends up drawing a world map of all the earthquakes that occur, obtaining a catalogue of the last two weeks with a magnitude greater than 4 degrees in the Richter scale. It shows us the most active areas today and how the planet draws a series of lines that divide the Earth's lithosphere into different plates.
