How to track and report earthquakes in Alaska


A report by the USGS suggests that more than one in five earthquakes in the U.S. in the past 30 years have been caused by a large earthquake.

The earthquake maps show that the number of earthquakes that were triggered by an earthquake increased from 7,831 in 2005 to more than 3,000 in 2011, a rise that researchers attribute to more people reporting them and more people being exposed to them.

The study, published online March 23 in the journal Science, also found that the most common type of earthquake in the US was a “large earthquake,” meaning it caused significant damage or caused major injuries.

Researchers also looked at a few other types of earthquakes.

Some were caused by “minor” earthquakes that caused minor damage, like a “soft” quake or a “moderate” earthquake that caused major damage.

But they also looked closely at “moderate earthquakes” caused by major damage, such as “extensional” earthquakes.

The researchers found that nearly all of the earthquakes they tracked were caused either by a magnitude 6 or 7 earthquake that triggered a magnitude 7 or larger earthquake.

A more recent study, by the same team, found that between 2004 and 2013, there were about 100,000 minor earthquakes, mostly small ones.

There are other factors that could cause large earthquakes, but the researchers say the majority of them have occurred over the past few decades.

They say there is little evidence that they are caused by manmade factors, and that more people are being exposed and reporting earthquakes, which could help to make better earthquake maps.

Here are the top 10 earthquake maps of the past decade, according to the USG.

Moderate earthquake: Moderate earthquakes are very small and do not cause much damage, and the US Geological Survey reports that they were not very common during the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in the mid-2000s.

They are less likely to trigger a large quake than other types.


Extreme earthquake: Extreme earthquakes are earthquakes that have caused significant or major damage to buildings, power lines, bridges, and infrastructure.


Massive earthquake: Large earthquakes cause damage to infrastructure, including buildings, infrastructure, and people.


Major earthquake: Major earthquakes are usually more damaging than moderate earthquakes.


Massive quake: Major and magnitude 6 earthquakes are common.

The USGS has a website that tracks large earthquakes and other types that are caused either directly or indirectly by natural events.

Researchers have been collecting and publishing earthquake maps for years.

In 2013, the Geological Survey published a report on earthquake maps that found that in 2012, there had been 4,564 earthquakes that occurred in the continental United States, the vast majority of which were caused directly by large earthquakes.

In the past year, more than 9,000 earthquakes were reported from Alaska, the largest state in the union.
