Earthquakes around the British Isles in the last 60 days

Last updated: Wed, 17 Aug 2022 21:20:01 (UTC)

This list contains information about background, tectonic earthquake activity in and around the British Isles. Seismic events for which there is strong evidence that they have been induced by human activities are in a separate list here.

Locations and magnitudes may change as events are re-analysed and revised.

Depths are rounded to the nearest km and all events shallower than 1 km are listed as 1 km. Magnitudes are local magnitude (ML) and are calculated to one decimal place, as is standard practice in earthquake seismology.
