There have been significant Earthquakes by the purple transform boundaries, but only one recent one. I think that we are due for an Earthquake here.
What have you learned about earthquakes and earthquake prediction?
One major thing that I learned about Earthquakes and Earthquake Prediction is that most Earthquakes happen on Convergent Plate Boundaries. Also, I had no idea at all that this many Earthquakes happen every day. The number of Earthquakes with a magnitude of 4.0 and greater per year can be over 12,000 Earthquakes!
Many factors influence earthquake prediction. Some of these include: the type of plate boundary, the number of earthquakes that occurred in the area in the past, and other things.
Where on Earth do most of the really big earthquakes occur?
Most large earthquakes on our planet occur on convergent plate boundaries. Some areas with that have large earthquakes often, according to my map, include Japan, Latin America, Indonesia, or Southern Europe.
