AbstractIn Québec, dozens of small earthquakes are recorded each year and some even reach magnitude 6 or more (Richter scale). This poster presents the processes responsible for earthquakes, the seismic activity in Québec between 1663 and 2010, and the measures to take before and during the event. It also shows the location and magnitude of the most important earthquakes recorded worldwide between 1973 and 2010.
