World Earthquakes seeks to facilitate cooperation in seismological research and earthquake and tsunami hazard mitigation by providing rapid transnational access to seismological data and source parameters of earthquakes around the world, and keeping these data accessible in the long term.
Using best mathematical methods and complex algorithms, World Earthquakes calculates the possiblity of the next Mw 6.5+ earthquake
in a particular zone or country and it is based on USGS, EMSC and GEOFON earthquake dataseries from the present and the past.
In the present, the algorithm is supposed to be the best tool for calculating, statistically, the probability of the next possible future earthquake in a certain area or zone.
The World Earthquakes Information Service (WEIS) is:
the best and the fastest sources for earthquake information worldwide;
calculating the probability of occurrence of the future possible Mw 6.5+ earthquake;
issuing notification emails and RSS feeds;
helping people with best informations in case of such natural disasters;
The Global Seismic Monitor (GSM) is a world map of global seismicity located automatically using the global virtual seismic network. Detailed information including hypocenter coordinates and a location map are displayed for the last earthquakes in the world.
