Seismic activity online (Earthquake map)



An earthquake is a process of the Earth's surface fluctuations. The causes of earthquakes can be natural (in most cases resulted from occurring tectonic processes) and man-made (as a result of explosions, collapses of underground cavities of the mining actions, the reservoir filling).

The magnitude scale is used to measure an earthquake (e.g. the Richter scale) and different intensity scales are used, too. The magnitude scale divides earthquakes according to the largest magnitude, which characterizes the relative energy of the earthquake.

Special devices as seismographs are used to spot and record an earthquake. The map shows data for the past 24-hours from the seismographs located throughout the world.

Data is collected from an open source http://www.emsc-csem.org/Earthquake/
