orange pin on map

I'm still mucking about with the preview images on japan and nz

Flipcard view has been deleted, I just can't fit the islands in such a small image square (123x123pxls) that are of any detail value.

I almost want to ignore the Northern Nevada earthquakes this morning. Actually, it wasn't that which first got me digging deeper into the USGS map. I noticed California wanted to talk this today. I noticed a different "swarm"- I'll call it that to distinguish this from other "swarms" such as the constant "the geysers swarm". I still don't think it means much yet. But California is moving a bit more than it has over the last week in general. Again, I'm arguing clustering. Just something to watch in the short term.

Back to Nevada. So, there was a 2.9M along with other smaller ones today. So, if my hypothesis has any hope left, then there should be the Idaho call back. The last time there was a small uptick, Idaho failed. I'm almost hoping to be wrong, then I can put the idea on the back self.

Oklahoma still rocks. Lots of new news about regulations which you can find in a search. All I'd like to suggest is that the other day there was a slight suspension in the rate of quakes. It was as if all the pumpers stopped at the same time. hmmm

Attention anyone using the QVSData program

The USGS import is crashing at this time because of a magnitude type of ‘Unknown’ in the data.

Unfortunately I can’t recompile at present as I am right in the middle of reworking part of the program.

I have a concert to perform in tonight but tomorrow I will create a small program to update the data table so it can cope with the ‘Unknown’ value which should serve as a temporary fix.

Yes I just seen that on download, error came up when the USGS was loading, took about a minute before it passed along and downloaded the other networks.
No big deal for me, as long as Geonet still works, i use it every day.

LOL, I've dumped that icon and preview style for NZ, too hard to work the interactive maps on smart phone, the new icons are too small for big fingers. I have reverted to the 2006 original icons, full opacity as well. Can be seen on the preview images for January 2015 already. Automatically changed for the full maps that are using NZ Topo (incl. Japan). The preview thumbs for Feb and MArch NZ will have to be redone, as will Japan grrrr.
Was worth a try to find something better, but will stick with what works.
As it happens, taking a bigger screenshot actually reduces the file size, so that means I will be able to get more ss/thumbs/preview images on Picasa.
On with the plotting.........

I see today on USGS, Coalinga Ca is having a cluster.
USGS 1 Day quake map

I check it daily and I have never seen this area light up.

Looks like the last big quake was in 83.
1983 Coalinga earthquake

Be safe. Also keep an eye on Oklahoma daily using the map above. Its spreading.

Hi Muzzy, and other QVSData users.

There is now a fix to solve the USGS problem (well in the program anyway!)

DB Upgrade 2015/03 Zip file 228Kb.

Unzip and run the setup and allow it to run the program when the installation completes. Any problems PM me.

Works for all versions of QVSData.

Answer the question "Are you running the standard version of QVSData?" with No if you have QVSData Pro.

PS: Probably a good idea to backup your database before doing this.

It is actually in the narrow straight between the Islands of New Britain and Latangai.

No Tsunami was generated.

First aftershock was around Mag 5.6

No reports yet of damage.

Sudden series of rather large quakes Soma Islands and Tonga over last couple of hours;

Monday March 30 2015, 07:56:51 UTC 103 minutes ago Samoa Islands Region. 6.3
Monday March 30 2015, 07:56:54 UTC 103 minutes ago Tonga 6.0 10.0
Monday March 30 2015, 08:18:04 UTC 82 minutes ago Samoa Islands Region. 6.8 60.0

Monday March 30 2015, 08:48:46 UTC 52 minutes ago Samoa Islands region 6.8 55.0

Tonga maybe 'shadows' of Samoan quakes?

Hoping that we aren't seeing something bigger heading down towards Kermadec Trench!

Roundings, Conversions, Updates etc

I was just on Geonets web site and looking at the list on
NZ earthquakes Mag 4.0+ 1960-2014

1995 jumps out as very high numbers
I already knew this because of the M5+ NZ Blog Maps I created a few years ago
127x M5's and 5x M6's and 1x 7.2????
I got the data from Geonets search to create the maps in the first place and it only had 105 M 5+'s and 8 M6's!!!
Further investigation ( downloading the CSV file again) shows that to get the figures on the list they round off the numbers to 4.95, 5.95 etc, so a 4.951 say becomes a M5.0, 5.93 becomes a 6.0 etc.
Then I had a look at the last download I got in March 2014, it shows 103x M5's and 7x M6's, no 7's!!!
That "new" 7.2 is Mw and was originally 6.99ML East Cape Ridge Off NI N.Z 05/02/95, even I rounded it to 7.0ML
There was originally a 6.55ML near Hawera, Taranaki Bight 19/9/95, now showing as 5.8Mw !!
I can understand the ML to Mw conversion, but geez it really skews the lists when they are thrown in mixed together, and can cause confusion or slanted analysis results.
I guess all I can do is write a few lines on my blog pointing this out, along the lines of "data up to 2015 is in ML"
Geonet (and the other Networks world wide ( U know who I mean ) should also make the caveat when they present data, such as on lists.
yeah I know they all have a disclaimer that use of their data at the users risk.
Looks like I might have to review and update everything once a year?
not sure if I want to do that, because already you can't compare pre 2015 data to post 2015 data because of the Mw/ML mixture.

edit on 04000000919115 by muzzy because: (no reason given)

Just did some sample downloads, 2011 to today, M5+
looks like up to end of 2011 they have been converting to Mw, mb, even MS in one case in 2011, but after 31/12/2011 its basically just M as the magnitude type, which by default is taken as ML.
I'll just have to keep an eye on it, as they update "the gap" 2012-2014, at least I still have my ML ongoing for 2015.

At least one person had a problem with the upgrade to the QVSData database.

If you did get error messages please try running this new version of the program. (Running more than once will not harm the database)

DB Upgrade Version 2 (Zipped)

The last Mag 8 quake was an 8.2 in Chile

Tue 2014-04-01 -19.6416 -70.8171 8.2 20.13 Near Coast Of Northern Chile (122) [F][T]

This means it is now over 1 year since the last Mag 8 and well over the average gap of 242 days.

Hello guys,

I created a new way to view the earthquakes on my website:

From today, you can view the earthquakes in 3D !!
For fans of Seismology and Volcanology, if followed (in the past months) the seismic crisis of the Icelandic volcano "Bardarbunga" will surely have seen a web-site that showed the earthquakes in the area in a three-dimensional graph.

Now you will see the same thing, but not limited to the Icelandic volcano, but for each seismic zone of the world!

I have divided the planet in 249 seismic zones I call with the name "Region".
I have created a page for each Region, where I explain why there is seismic activity, and list the faults and the tectonic plates in the Region.
I assure you that this alone a great job ...

On the home page, under the map is a list of the last 150 earthquakes (taken from EMSC-CSEM). And for every earthquake is reported the Region in which it occurred.
If you click it will open the page dedicated to the Region.

Earthquakes in 3D can be seen here:

Select the region and will show the map in 2D and 3D map.
There are ways of visualizzione:

1) IPOCENTRALE: the color depends on the depth of the earthquake hypocenter

2) TEMPORALE: the color of earthquakes depends on the time elapsed

The same thing is present on every page of the Region!

For example, the Western Region of Turkey:

or Chile:


I hope is a good work
