How Many Earthquakes Do We Have On Average? Answer Inside!
The info was taken from the link found below

Magnitude----------Occurrence


8 & higher ---> 1 on average per year
7 - 7.9 -----> 15 on average per year
6 - 6.9 -----> 134 on average per year
5 - 5.9 -----> 1319 on average per year
4 - 4.9 -----> 13,000 on average per year
3 - 3.9 -----> 130,000 on average per year
2 - 2.9 -----> 1,300,000 on average per year

[link to earthquake.usgs.gov]



Add it all together you get 1,444,469 Earthquakes per year.

120,372 per month on average!!!

So give or take around 1.3 million to 1.5 million quakes per year.

EDIT:

This link directs you to a post in this thread... that is worth reading. I like the posters style and use of info to prove a point.

 Quoting: Ostria1


Well thats on average.
We could have another one.
Even if we had 1 or 2 more it wouldnt be too 'out of the norm'

we could still have another one any time.

Those numbers are annually/on average. this could be an odd ball year... with two 8.0's or higher? or it might not?

as per the USGS there has been 7253 earthquakes in total for the last 30 days...
[link to earthquake.usgs.gov]

According to the math in the OP... we are under the average for monthly totals...

BUT... next month might produce 200,000 EQ's that are 0.1

Which would be practically nothing as far as shaking... I doubt you would feel it if it happened 30 feet under you lol
and the monthly average is 120,372...
200,000 isnt really all that extreme

But that many would raise our average back up..

and make up for the lack of quakes in the last 30 days.

Now... if next month and the month after is still falling short...

thats not good...

I'd rather see quakes all over the place... than very little quakes at all....

Quakes release pressure and keep the big big ones from happening...

No pressure release = damned

But the reason behind posting this was because i had seen more than a few on here not knowing how often and how many quakes happen on average...

Its a staggering amount!

LOL. From the USGS. Interesting.

So what years did they use to make their AVERAGES from I wonder. The Last two or the last 20.

I have read many articles lately that our averages are up by more than half the last two years.

If you count how many Earthquakes in the last 45 days we have had in the 5-5.9 range then were way over half already in 30 days.

If you count the 6-6.0 range were half way there in 45 days.

If you count the 7-7.9 ones then were just about a third of the way there in 60 days.

Concidering that USGS has also been known to downgrade magnitudes usually by .4 and not report some altogether then the averages they present us are very lets us say screwed as in were screwed.

Throwing in all the smaller ones under 2.0 is redundant.

By the way the articles about Earthquakes were and can be seen at the Extincton Protocol.

Hows about we average out the Volcano's.

We had 77 that were active and erupting in 2012.

We currently have 44 Active and Erupting and its only 37 days into the year.

The Normal range for active and erupting volcano's in a given year is 35-40.

USGS is a bunch of Twats...

but if they are willing to let us know at we have 1.5 million quakes per yer...

Let's do an experiment of our own...

I am seeing that we have had 7253 total quakes in the last 30 days.

Can you find a source that states different? Im not being mean... I would love to compare info :)

In 30 days i'll post back in here and post the amount of quakes im seeing.

You are more than welcomed to join me :)

sound like a plan?


oh and we have had 154 5.0-5.9's in the last 30 days.

Let's see what the next 30 days tell us...

After a month or two of observations.. we will reflect on the data and either

cruise or damned

thumbs

cos at the moment its too soon to say either way....

Averages are a cool way to take high numbers and turn them small... yep thats true...

I drive a car that has keeps track of the average speed its been drove since it was purchased...

its 29.8 mph... thats the average speed that car has been... ever...

Yet countless times i've had it at 85mph for 4 hours strait without letting up... and right back into it for 4 more....

but driving slowly on the small crooked road near my home has killed the potential for my average to be very high.

IMO, this information is a little misleading (though I doubt you it intended it to be).

Some of these numbers are estimates.

8 & higher ---> 1 on average per year
7 - 7.9 -----> 15 on average per year
6 - 6.9 -----> 134 on average per year
5 - 5.9 -----> 1319 on average per year
4 - 4.9 -----> 13,000 on average per year (estimated)
3 - 3.9 -----> 130,000 on average per year (estimated)
2 - 2.9 -----> 1,300,000 on average per year (estimated)

And these estimates are much higher than anything the USGS has ever recorded. At the link you provided, [link to earthquake.usgs.gov] there is a chart further down titled Number of Earthquakes Worldwide for 2000 - 2012 This chart is a bit difficult to read, so here is a clearer version of it (minus the estimated deaths for each year) [link to oi46.tinypic.com]

Note that the USGS has not recorded more than 32 thousand earthquakes per year in the last 13 years. It estimates that there are nearly 1.5 million earthquakes of magnitude 2.0 or higher every year, but it's never recorded more than 32,000 total of any magnitude. That means that it's only recorded less than 2% of the 2.0+ earthquakes that it estimates happen each year.

(Also note that USGS stopped collecting data for most earthquakes below 4.5 outside of the U.S.A. But the data for 4.5 to 4.9 earthquakes is lumped together with 4.0 to 4.4 in its charts.)

In other words, it appears that the USGS really has no idea if the total number of earthquakes per year is changing or not.

I find the RSOE EDIS site better at reporting. It includes all stations including Europe and the world.

The USGS would have us all believe there are less and eveything is average and normal.
