Loads Of Links

Each region contains links (underlined) for earthquake listings and volcano sites etc that are relevant to that region. If the item is not underlined there is no information for that area yet. Use the navigation links below to go directly to a region, or you can also use the navigation on the right hand side. Web cams and Seismos have their own pages. See menu or links below. All links open in this page.

Worldwide sites with listings/graphics of earthquakes

European-Metiterranean Seismological Centre Listing for world wide events of approx mag 4+ and for local European events down to mag 2.0
REV (World View) REV provides a really great mix of current and historical earthquakes and is well work bookmarking as a main source of data. There is a World view (link opposite) a North Pole view and a South Pole view and a Contiguous US view for those in the States.
US Gelogical Survey (USGS) Interactive Map and List with selectable options

  • 1 Day, Magnitude 2.5+ Worldwide
  • 1 Day, All Magnitudes Worldwide
  • 7 Days, Magnitude 4.5+ Worldwide
  • 7 Days, Magnitude 2.5+ Worldwide
  • 7 Days, All Magnitudes Worldwide
  • 30 Days, Magnitude 4.5+ Worldwide
  • 30 Days, Magnitude 2.5+ Worldwide
IRIS Earthquake Browser Browse up to 3.3 million earthquakes using a zoomable map with options for magnitude, depth, lat-lon etc. You can even rotate the quakes in 3D.
Link to sample covering Greece and Crete 1970-Present
Worldwide Earthquake Stats This site is just a mass of present and past earthquake information. Seriously recommended.
IRIS 30 Day Worldwide List Earthquakes Worldwide in the Last 30 Days (of magnitude >= 4.0) LOCATION links are into the IRIS Earthquake Explorer, centred on the vicinity of the quake.(See above for some details)
WILBUR III 90 Day Worldwide Interactive. The map below displays events containing FARM and SPYDER® data for the last 90 days or the selected quarter. The data resides in IRIS DMC’s POND archive.
Note: This leads to downloads of SAC and other files. You need to have software to use these. The lists are handy however.
If you go as far as the stations page you can still get seismograms of the event by clicking the station code.
Geofon Global Monitor Automatic GEOFON Global Seismic Monitor. Automated information from the worldwide Geofon network.
Global CMT Catalog Global CMT Catalog Search. Date constraints: catalog starts in 1976 and goes through present (can be about 4 months behind)
The item below is the same, but is the up to date quick solutions.
LDEO Seismology Research Surface-wave event locations derived from Near Real Time Data
The map shows the locations of surface-wave sources identified by a systematic analysis of seismograms from the Global Seismographic Network and from other seismographic networks and stations. The figure shows the detections for the last week and is updated a few times daily.
Geoscience Australia Listing of Australian and worldwide earthquakes. For specific customisable lists please see the alternative listed under Oceania – Australia below.
Russian Academy of Sciences – Geophysical Survey Another worldwide listing with interactive map. Also give access to older catalogues.
China Earthquake Networks Centre (In Chinese) There are some good historical maps and graphs in the links.
Significant Earthquake and News Headlines Archived information going back many years. These archived web pages should generally not be considered to have the most up-to-date, authoritative information and images for each earthquake. See link on page.
Live Earthquake Mashup Earthquakes around the world on a mapping system.
RSOE EDIS Disaster and Emergency service listings covering earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, chemicals hazards and much more.
Wikipedia Earthquakes in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 A listing of Mag 6+ or large earthquakes where fatalities occurred.Please be aware when using this list that the entries are NOT accurate and are drawn from several sources with no regard whatsoever for magnitude types etc. Mostly it is USGS and based on the initial magnitude. As far as I am aware the editors do not go back and adjust for later changes.

But it has pretty flags!

Volcano Webs and Blogs

SI / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report Smithsonian updates on volcanoes weekly (on Wednesdays) **Newly Updated look**
Elevated Activity [USGS] Elevated activity on volcanoes in the United States including Alaska and Hawaii
Eruptions! Blog This is a blog dedicated to volcanism. Your host is Erik Klemetti, an assistant professor of geosciences at Denison University
Volcano Live (John Search) Monitoring worldwide volcanic activity on the internet since 2000
The Volcanism Blog Whilst there is still information on this blog it appears to be derelict. This is a blog about volcanism, volcanoes and volcanology (that used to be vulcanology!), on Earth and elsewhere in the Solar System. It’s a place for volcano news, analysis and information, not only about the science of volcanism but also its place in human culture, society and history.
Volcano Discovery Whilst this is a site set up for selling tours to view volcanoes it nevertheless is a good informative site under German ownership. I mention that as a few German elements do creep into the English side on occasions.
NASA ASTER Volcano satellite images archive
World Organisation Of Volcano Observatories Members List. This is based on the 2005 edition of the WOVO Directory. Member observatories are listed in alphabetical order: the numbering scheme of the Catalogue of Active Volcanoes of the World, and of Simkin and Siebert (1994) Volcanoes of the World is shown when hovering over the links.

Above Top Secret forums discussing Earthquakes and Volcanoes

ATS Quake Watch 2013 Discussions and notification of earthquakes around the world, and of anomalies. This link goes to the last page. (First page is here and this links back to earlier years.)
ATS Volcano Watch 2013 Discussions about volcanoes around the world and information on helicorders and the current state of the volcano world! This link goes to the last page. The first page (here) has links to earlier years.
What’s going on at Yellowstone? This is a massive thread! When this link was added it was running at 634 pages. There is a huge amount of information to be gleaned from within the pages. At some stage I may add a précis page to this site. The link takes you to the last page. (phew!)

The QVS Data Program from DA Software.

Download the program – sorry not just yet. Facilities to automatically download earthquakes from the USGS listings, the EMSC listings and from GeoNet New Zealand. Being added at present is Iceland and others will follow rapidly. The program will be released very soon. There are still a few minor bugs to iron out and the help files to complete.
