Large of Earthquake Archive


Archive Information

    The following listings of large Moment magnitude (Mw +6.0) earthquakes are compiled from catalogs at the National Earthquake Information Center, United States Geologic Survey, and Harvard Geophysical Laboratory, Harvard University. Respectively, each is an excellent method of estimating the energy release from an earthquake.
    ?
    In the interest of understanding how many +6.0 earthquake occur each year, we have combined the two catalogs and listed the largest Moment magnitude as the strongest shock.

    Although data has been reviewed by humans, further analyses may produce changes in the results. All rights and limitations apply. If you use these numbers other than for you own personal use, please give us the credit as this has taken 100s on man-hours to assemble.
