Earthquake View App: What is Status?

In the Earthquake View App, there are two fields: Status and Phase
Some earthquakes are Status M and others are Status C. What do these abbreviations represent? I do not see a legend, perhaps something to consider adding to the app.

Hello Mrmah96,

Firstly, thank you very much for your suggestion! We are constantly working to improve our services, and messages like yours are what helps us the most!

To answer your question, Status M means Manual checked or Manual reviewed. The difference with Status C is an earthquake event could be confirmed automatically instead of manually. You can read more here: scolv — SeisComP Release documentation

Phases is the number of phases reported used to locate the earthquake, but sometimes is blank because this value is not always reported by the system. Other times instead, like you have seen, they appear as a number in the dedicated column.
