Figure 3. Seismicity of Hawaii from 2021 Hawaii National Seismic Hazard Map

Detailed Description

Seismicity of Hawaii: earthquakes M>5 from the 1840-1899, 1900-1959, 1960-2019 catalogs shown separately. While earthquake activity remains high today, it seems to have decreased over the past 60 years, which could be related to less volcanic activity at Mauna Loa.
