Last 8 to 30 Days of Earthquake Activity from the QED

Madeline Zirbes, United States Geological Survey, National Earthquake Information Center

This Quick Epicenter Determinations (QED) map and list displays information on earthquakes that occurred between 8 and 30 days ago. The site provides information on earthquakes around the world, including the time, latitude, longitude, magnitude, depth, and geographic region where the epicenter occurred. Once they are 8 days old, earthquakes from the Recent Worldwide Earthquake Activity list scroll off that list and onto this one.
