The Earthquakes World Map depicts the distribution of the earthquakes epicenters around the Globe. The base map illustrates the boundaries of the lithospheric plates, where the vast majority of the earthquakes are being generated. This argument is clearly understood when applying the epicenters on the lithospheric boundaries, with the former being projected along the latter.
The earthquakes are resembled on the map with colored circles. Red color resembles the most recent earthquakes that happened just an hour ago! Orange circles are the earthquakes of the past day and the blue circles are the earthquakes of the previous month.
In addition, the circles vary in size, with large circles resembling earthquakes of high magnitude and smaller ones resembling earthquakes of lower magnitude.
