Earthquake reports and news:

Earthquake statistics: total number of seismic events and energy over time

Wednesday May 29, 2019 07:17 AM | BY: TOM

Continuously updated earthquake statistics show that quake frequency decreases exponentially with magnitude, or vice versa: small earthquakes are MUCH more frequent than larger ones.
Even though smaller quakes are much more frequent, they release much less energy combined than a single large one.
