QuakeWatch receives data via a feed from the US Geological Survey. Not only does this feed contain Earthquake information such as magnitude, location, depth and time, but it also include other information important to researchers and engineers. This feed also provides links to data products associated with earthquakes, such as earthquake information web pages, "Did you feel it?" web forms, Shaking intensity maps (Shakemaps) and Tsunami information reports. This information is available via the "products" button. If Tsunami information is available then this button will read "Tsunami" in red text.
