New global map shows probable giant earthquake locations

The map shows the points where giant earthquakes are possible.

International researchers at the Monash University, Australia created a global map showing the points where giant earthquakes are possible to happen.

Most earthquakes occur when tectonic plates are moving. Giant earthquake can occur at subduction zones – where one plate sinks below the other. The information so far was unreliable, mostly because giant earthquakes are relatively rare and tracking record goes as far as the 19th hundred.
