Number of quakes per year

Note:
The apparent increase in the number of quakes is not because global seismic activity has increased, but because the number of seismic networks around the world and their sensitivity to detect smaller quakes has been constantly increasing.
This is most evident if one looks at the number of smaller earthquakes (below magnitude 5). For larger quakes (magnitude 5 or more), the effect disappears after around the 1990s. Since then, the global coverage of earthquake of larger quakes has been nearly complete.

Average number of earthquakes

Based on data from the past 10 years and our earthquake archive back to 1900, there are about 3,100,000 quakes on average per year worldwide:
  • Mag. 8 or higher: 0.6 quakes per year (or 1 quake every 1.7 years)
  • Mag. 7 or higher: 8.6 quakes per year
  • Mag. 6 or higher: 85 quakes per year
  • Mag. 5 or higher: 1,900 quakes per year (or 5.1 quakes per day)
  • Mag. 4 or higher: 14,000 quakes per year (or 39.3 quakes per day)
  • Mag. 3 or higher: 48,000 quakes per year (or 133 quakes per day)
  • Mag. 2 or higher: 130,000 quakes per year (or 349 quakes per day)
  • Mag. 1 or higher: 300,000 quakes per year (or 832 quakes per day)
