What is it?

This page displays earthquakes detected by Ocean Networks Canada seismic sensors. Larger earthquakes (over 4.0 on the Richter scale) from the previous 12 months are displayed, with one hour of seismic data previewed below.

 

 

Why is this useful?

This page makes it easy for everyone to see the most recent, larger earthquakes that have been detected by Ocean Networks Canada's sensors. Other earthquake data and educational resources are available from sources such as USGS and IRIS.
