Natural critical phenomena are characterized by laminar periods separated by events where bursts of activity take place, and by the interrelated self-similarity of space-time scales and of the event sizes. One example are earthquakes: for this case a new approach to quantify correlations between events reveals new phenomenology. By linking correlated earthquakes one creates a scale-free network of events, which can have applications in hazard assessment.
