This map shows 9323 earthquakes equal to or greater than 4.5 magnitude that occurred during 2011 on a global map in sequence from Jan. 1 through Dec. 31,
with magnitude indicated by circle size and louder volume for higher magnitude quakes. (This is a pretty amazing presentation.)

As you will see the greatest portion of quake activity was in the Pacific Rim with the largest concentration apparently in the area of Japan.

Note Fukushima Earthquake hits around 1:50 mark


Total time 9 minutes 3 seconds.

    When the Earth Moves Again, Jefferson Airplane: Lyrics:

    In golden Hannibal Carthage days marchin’ onto Rome
    knockin’ on the door and findin’ nobody home there
    Rome she cut our army down and left them in the snow so now
    I go to where I come from now I go home to the Sun
    When the earth moves again
    when the earth moves again my friend
    let the lady ride on through
    when the earth moves again

    Egyptian kings they sing of Gods and pyramids of stone
    and they left the deserts clean and they left the deserts
    golden and shinin’ as a beacon for those that need a road
    into the day and thru the night we go and find our way home
    when the earth moves again
    my love to all the people I leave behind
    search out the new ground around you
    when the earth moves again
    your head can pull your body around
    and you can leave whenever you can and the ground
    take what you and on the land sea foam glass is sand
    if you’ve only lived on earth you’ve never seen the sun
    or the promise of a thousand other suns that glow beyond here
    and if you care to see the future look into the eyes
    of your young dancing children don’t be afraid of our ways
    when the earth moves again
    when the earth moves again
    watch the lady ride and sigh
    when the earth moves again
    Moses Moses the red sea closes over you when you
    least expect it to
    when the earth moves again
    when the earth moves again
