New Resource: Earthquake Map In Real Time for Oregon, California and the Pacific
From The Oregonian:
When a series of earthquakes shook the deep waters of the Pacific Ocean about 300 miles west of Salem, Oregon, an undersea map of the area was instructive.
The early June quakes clustered around the weird, near-90-degree juncture of the Juan de Fuca Ridge and the Blanco Fracture Zone, a fairly frequent center of seismic activity.
Now The Oregonian/OregonLive has made it easier to track such quakes in the deep blue sea — and anywhere else that might arouse your curiosity.
Voila our nearly real-time earthquake map, updated every 15 minutes.
Plenty of websites such as Seismic Monitor, the U.S. Geologic Survey, and the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network show recent earthquakes across the globe
[Our emphasis] We wanted to make our map a little more useful than the rest by making underwater features a major component.
