Netherlands Seismic Station Magnitude Completeness Map

The seismic magnitude of completeness map shows the distribution of seismic stations in the Netherlands with the magnitude contours. The contours represent the minimum magnitude of an earthquake that can be detected and localised by the seismic network. All earthquakes with a magnitude above 2.0 can be detected across the Netherlands. The map is updated periodically, for example after a network expansion.
