Erdbebendaten von verschiedenen Agenturen im Vergleich

Info: Je mehr verschiedene Agenturen das gleiche Beben angeben, desto verlässlicher sind die Daten und umso genauer kann man einen Mittelwert zu Magnitude, Tiefe etc ableiten. Es dauert normalerweise einige Stunden, bis die seismischen Daten präzise ausgewertet worden sind und die Angaben zuverlässige Präzision besitzen. Dies führt oft dazu, dass Magnitude und andere Daten in den ersten Stunden immer wieder nach oben oder unten korrigiert werden.
