Label info : M = magnitude, D = depth (km), Time = UTC - Click here for the Time Zone world map.

INFO link behind a specific earthquake row is showing additional maps and information + previous earthquakes
The multi-source approach makes it possible to compare preliminary Magnitude and Depth values as seismology is not an exact science and needs a lot of (re-)calculations.
