Earthquakes - complete catalogue for the Netherlands and near surrounding

This dataset contains the location (epicentre), origin time (UTC), magnitude, depth [km] and type of all the earthquakes in and around the Netherlands. The location of the epicentre has an uncertainty of approx. 1 kilometer (horizontal). The type of earthquake distinguishes between natural (tectonic) earthquakes and induced earthquakes. The seismic network of the KNMI consists of geophones in boreholes (up to 300 m depth), accelerometers, and "broadband" seismometers.
