Note: The NGDC has records for significant events that go back several thousand years BCE. Added for source diversity, the United States Geological Survey reports are sufficient from the early 1980s to the present. Occasionally, these sources omit the maximum felt intensity. Rovida et al. 2011 can help fill in some of the gaps. Intensity values derived from this source are indicated with an asterisk (*). The inclusion criteria for adding events are based on WikiProject Earthquakes' notability guidelines, which were developed for stand-alone articles. The principles described are also applicable to lists, however. In summary, only damaging, injurious, or deadly events should be recorded.
