just short info about tectonical plates, subduction zones, ring of fire and these are the reasons for the EQs lately !
just a bit of info why all these current earthquakes are happening, mostly around the "ring of fire" but as well in California & Mexico.

i want to keep it short, so i explain in layman´s terms.
who is interested can do his/her own research :)

i put the links here only for the graphics, of course you can read the linked articles as well.

basically, the plates are pushing against other plates with enormous pressure, the crust is damaged and magma leaks, this is forming volcanos in these zones, too:
where these plates meet it is called "subduction zone", as one of the plates is slowly taking a dive under the other plate.

this is what it looks like:

same is happening in Iran;
for sure, this is happening ever since Pangea split and e.g. India was pushed against the plate with enourmous force, what resulted in the Himalaya.
see here:
[link to zeus.zeit.de]

and here for India and the Australian plate:
[link to www.thetruthbehindthescenes.org]

and here a "close-up" for the Australian plate, which is pushed westwards by the Pacific plate:
[link to oceanexplorer.noaa.gov]

the Pacific plate pushes westwards and up, which results in pressure against California and in the Juan de Fuca plate pushing against Oregon and Washington:

this is a crappy site regarding the looks, but the info is good, and what´s happening (and happenend) is animated:

you left out that Africa is jammed against Europe and can subduct no more, and the same is now happening with the Australian plate pushing north.

one day, they'll break free, and all hell will break loose

Seems, from the last plate shown ( CA/Pacific ), a good 'slice of Ca around San Francisco could slip into the ocean at any time.

Nice sets of pics/diagrams, OP ! Thanks for the post. Old geology student from R.P.I. in Troy, NY. Crooks there; took your money and deliberately squeezed out over a 1500 in 1952-53, by changing all the rules on grades/what counted, WITHOUT the students knowledge. One student in a geology course, with a straight F, ended up with the ONLY A, after getting the final from the secretary that typed it. NOTHING counted BUT the final; rights minus wrongs, ON a CURVE!

i left it out by purpose, as it is quiet atm.
the big EQs lately (all above 4.7..) are happening with the plates mentioned.
africa is "special" anyway. it will break in 2 pieces (ongoing, we´ll see this happening in our lifetime perhaps) before it breaks lose i suppose.
but thank you for mentioning it :)

Tokyo is going to get one. Sooner rather than later, I'd say.

How quiet ?... [link to www.emsc-csem.org] just the past 2 wks / and Med is just as dangerous as Pacific is,they work in tandem and one can not observe the one side only / great job for the Pacific but the biggest surprize won't come from the plates...

Great info, OP. Thank you.

You seem to know your stuff so One question. Any idea why EQ's up north at the pole?

Should we be worried about recent activity there?

HEY BEASTS, there are NO tectonical plates and subduction zones.
