Examples for


Access Wolfram|Alpha's worldwide and up-to-date database of historical earthquakes to learn their dates and magnitudes or map their epicenters. Search for earthquakes, both recent and past, by time and location. Compute properties of earthquakes, such as energy, ground motion and fault slip, based on their magnitudes. Get information on different magnitude and intensity scales.
