As you know the prediction by Li Siguang, a famous geologist, that there were four places where giant earthquake would happen, actually he mainly pointed out the key earthquake belts in China.
Yesterday evening I searched the relative information on the web by some search engines and found a graph of the earthquake belts distribution in China which is posted here.
The following information comes from 21st Century Online and the website address is http://www.21se.cn/apps/21km_dev/core.php?op=readcontribute&cid=208 with the title of Earthquake-Prone Areas in China.
Because China is situated between two major earthquake belts — the “Pacific Ring of Fire” and “Eurasia Earthquake Zone”, China’s seismic activities are quite frequent.
China’s seismic activities mostly take place in 23 earthquake belts in 5 regions.
Here are the five regions:
Taiwan Province and its nearby seas;
Southwestern regions, mainly referring to Tibet, western Sichuan and Mid-western Yunnan;
Northwestern regions, mainly including Hexi Corridor region of Gansu, Qinghai, Ningxia and the northern and southern sides of Mount Tianshan;
Northern China regions, including both sides of Mount Taihang, river valleys of River Fen and River Wei, regions around Mount Yinshan and Mount Yanshan, central Shandong, and the Bay of Bohai;
Guangdong, and Fujian etc. in southeastern coastal regions.
China‘s Taiwan Province is situated in the "Pacific Ring of Fire", while the regions of Tibet, Xinjiang, and the provinces of Yunnan, Sichuan, and Qinghai in "Eurasia Earthquake Zone".
The Chinese translation is as follows.
