We present an approach to describe the evolution of distributed seismicity by configurational entropy. We demonstrate the detection of phase transitions in the sense of a critical point phenomenon in a 2D site-percolation model and in temporal and spatial vicinity to the 1992, M7.3 Landers earthquake in Southern California. Our findings support the assumption of intermittent criticality in the Earth's crust. We also address the potential usefulness of the method for earthquake catalogue declustering.
