map with cool colors in a linear pattern

Here we use Temblor’s T-GEAR model to display the return time of magnitude-7.6 earthquakes in Mexico. T-GEAR is a long-term model that attempts to capture the past century of behavior by blending strain rate measured by GPS and the release of that strain in earthquakes occurring over the past 117 years. The typical return time of quakes this size is about 100 years.
