Google Earth KML

Display real-time earthquakes and plate boundaries in Google Earth (requires version 4+). To display earthquakes, download one of our earthquake KML files (below) and open it in Google Earth. Earthquakes refresh every 5-minutes in Google Earth. More Google Earth files »

RSS Feeds

Contains basic information (date, location, and magnitude) about each earthquake and a link to a detailed report. More information »

CSV Files

Comma separated ASCII text files containing the source network (Src), ID (Eqid), version, date, location, magnitude, depth and number of reporting stations (NST) for each earthquake. Note: files are not inclusive (the past day file does not include past hour events, for example).

Merged Catalog in XML Format

Unlike the RSS Feeds, this XML file contains all available parameters, including date, location, magnitude/magnitude type, number of stations/phases used for location, distance to first station, RMS/horizontal/vertical errors, and more. The minimum magnitude of events included in the XML merged catalog varies from region to region depending upon the density of the reporting networks.

Merged Catalog in Cube Format

Cube format is a fixed-format, card-like version of the information in the merged catalog. It contains the same information provided in the XML format, except that there is no information on ‘duplicate’ event ids, which occur when networks other than the authoritative network submit information on the same event. The minimum magnitude of events included in the Cube catalog varies from region to region depending upon the density of the reporting networks. More information »

Moment Tensors via Email

Sends a message that contains the estimate of the seismic moment tensor for earthquakes with either a body-wave magnitude (mb) or surface-wave magnitude (MS) of 5.5 or greater. More information »

QED Post

Sends a daily message of the earthquakes located 7 days behind the current day taken from our Quick Epicenter Determinations (QED) listing. It is a preliminary publication and typically contains 10-30 events per day. More information »
