This is a list of earthquakes in 1901. Only magnitude 6.0 or greater earthquakes appear on the list. Exceptions to this are earthquakes which have caused death, injury or damage. Events which occurred in remote areas will be excluded from the list as they wouldn't have generated significant media interest. All dates are listed according to UTC time. Japan saw a great deal of activity this year. In spite of their being 14 magnitude 7.0+ events the death toll was once again low with most of the 125 deaths coming from China.
