Current data on earthquake activity is recorded at the University of Washington Seismology Laboratory. The electronic database lists earthquake activity by date, time, location, depth, magnitude, recording station, and signal quality. The database primarily provides recent earthquake information for the Northwest and Pacific regions, although listings for other locations appear also. An additional site allows you to browse information about earthquake activity world-wide.
