Quakes mailing list beta programme

Quake graphic, USGS.gov

So you've heard of our Quakes Alert service, launching soon. Here's how it works.

There will be two types of email. When a big quake happens anywhere in the world, we'll send you an email within two minutes of USGS publishing the data, including updates on magnitudes of already-reported quakes - plus a daily summary of all significant quakes reported around the world in the last 24 hours.

It'll be free forever, for the founder members (including beta testers). If you'd like to be considered as a beta tester, email us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , and we'll let you know when the beta programme opens.
