These are all the earthquakes in known history that definitively registered 9.0 magnitude or higher. Some earthquakes, like the Cascadia earthquake that occurred along the Pacific Northwest Coast of the United States in 1700, have been estimated to be in a range that could have been 9.0 magnitude. The range for that earthquake though is 8.7 to 9.2. These are the earthquakes that were definitely measured at 9.0 magnitude or higher.
