Description

A data frame with 13724 rows and 6 columns giving occurrence date, time, longitude, latitude, magnitude and depth of shallow earthquakes (depth < 100 km) occurred since 1926-01-08 till 2007-12-29 in Japan and its vicinity (128-145E and 27-45N). Only earthquakes with magnitude greater than or equal to 4.5 are included.
