General Disclaimer

Earthquake information published on the Council for Geoscience Website (“the Website”) is obtained from waveforms recorded by the South African National Seismograph Network. The information provides both automated and analysed assessment of the earthquake parameters.

Users are cautioned that the intended purpose and use is exclusively for information and that the Council for Geoscience does not accept liability arising from use of or inferences made from the information as published on the Website.

listed events

“The following table lists the seismic events recorded by the Council for Geoscience where “origin time” indicates the date and time (in South African Standard Time) on which the event occurred; “Latitude” and “longitude” indicate the geographical coordinates of the location of the event in decimal degrees; “Magnitude” indicates the local magnitude (Ml) calculated for the event; “Magnitude Type” indicates preliminary determined local magnitude “M” (this may differ from the final magnitude); “Status” indicates whether or not the event has been analysed and confirmed by a seismologist (“C”) or if it is an automatic location (“A”) which has not been analysed; “Location” provides a link to view a map of the location of the event”
