NOTE: NMTSO is again operating in a limited manner after a catastrophic single-point of failure to our ageing system at 0635 MST Jan 14, 2014. A new data center was brought on-line May 1, but the forced relocation of our station repeater from M-Mountain in January entail that 4 of our stations are not being received, impacting detection and location capability.

Explanation of Values in Earthquake List

SMB Socorro Magma Body
Lat and Lon The coordinates of the epicenter of the earthquake in degrees latitude and degrees longitude. The epicenter is the location on the surface directly above the actual rupture point of the earthquake, which is below the surface.
Depth Depth to the earthquake source in kilometers. Default, unconstrained, value is 5 km.
Magnitude The magnitude indicates the size of the earthquake. The NMTSO calculates magnitude based on the duration of the event.
RMS Measure of the final earthquake location fit.
STD Measure of the solution variation, in kms.
Region/map Approximate location in New Mexico. Clicking on link will open a Google map centered on the event location.
NEIC National Earthquake Information Center Earthquakes noted as having an NEIC report will have a link to the report for 30 days. After that, the event is archived in an NEIC database that is not easily linked to, so the link will be changed to the NEIC earthquake catalog search page.
