The total number of quakes above magnitude 2 that occurred during the 7 days in the marked area was 16, 10% more than usually. This is compared to the average number (Ø) of 14.5 quakes obtained from the 100 preceding 7 days intervals with a standard mean deviation (σ) of 15 (which is a measure of the typical amount of variation, or spread, of quake numbers during such a time interval).
Interpretation: There is a weak increase in detected quakes during the past 7 days. In particular, there was a strong increase in smaller quakes of magnitudes around 3.
