The earthquakes are catastrophic events that must be studied and predicted. In this research, signal processing based method is used to detect the location of earthquake and the main shock time. The correlation coefficients and the total correlation coefficients used to detect the earthquake time. The results show that the use of the correlation coefficients in general is effective to find the main shock. The correlation coefficient among six stations are given a higher accuracy of 100% than two stations only, the data took from Iraqi seismic monitoring stations for date 2017-2018
