The latitude and longitude of the earthquake are given in decimal degrees. The latitude is the number of degrees north (N) or south (S) of the equator. The longitude is the number of degrees east (E) or west (W) of the prime meridian, which runs through Greenwich, England.
Depth is the distance below sea level in kilometers. If the depth of an event is not satisfactorily determined by the data, it is held to a default depth, and the Location Quality shows "depth fixed by location program."
Magnitude is a measure of the size of an earthquake or strain energy released by it, as determined by seismographic observations. More->
The region name is usually an automatically-generated name from the Flinn-Engdahl (F-E) seismic and geographical regionalization scheme. The boundaries of these regions are defined at one-degree intervals and therefore differ from irregular political boundaries. More->
