January 6, 2022 M 6.1 Corinto, Nicaragua Earthquake

Event response pages are a service to help coordinate community science after an earthquake or other notable geophysical event by collecting relevant data. Findings and figures are preliminary and subject to revision.

At 16:25:07 (UTC) on January 6, 2022, a magnitude 6.1 earthquake occurred offshore of Nicaragua, about 58 kilometers south of Corinto. For more information, see the USGS Earthquake Hazards Program event page.

The event occurred within the footprint of the Network of the Americas (NOTA), a network of continuous GPS/GNSS stations and borehole instruments operated by UNAVCO that monitors plate motion and transient deformation, in addition to other applications. Stations near the event for which UNAVCO provides data include one NOTA station and several that are part of a project around Telica Volcano (NSF award 0911546)—all of which are supported by the Nicaraguan Institute for Territorial Studies (INETER).

These data are provided by the Geodetic Facility for the Advancement of Geoscience (GAGE) Facility, operated by UNAVCO, Inc. with support from the National Science Foundation and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration under NSF Cooperative Agreement EAR-1724794NOTA is a core component of the NSF GAGE Facility. To acknowledge use of these data please follow the acknowledgment guidelines.
