Hundreds of earthquakes occur across the globe every day, but most of them are too small for us to feel. Here, we will dive into earthquake data and explore some of the larger magnitude earthquakes (greater than M5.0) that have occurred over the past several years.
We start by looking at where earthquakes occur spatially. The interactive map below shows the past 5 years of earthquakes, where each circle represents a single earthquake. Circles increase in size with increasing earthquake magnitude and the color indicates depth. Use the toolbar to zoom in and out and pan the page. Hover over points with the cursor to see information about each earthquake.
