SIL automatic bulletin

Earthquakes in Iceland during the last 48 hours

Back to map

This list contains automatically located events from the SIL seismic system. Depth is measured in kilometers and Ml represents the local magnitude. The list contains all events that have a quality value equal to or greater than 30. A higher quality value means a better-located event. On the maps, a green star appears if the earthquake has a magnitude greater than 3 and a quality value greater than 85. This page is updated regularly.

NOTE: These are automatic results from the SIL seismic system
