As usual USGS down graded both.

6.2 to 6.1

6.5 to 6.0

EMSC is even showing lower for both 5.9 and 5.5

No I'm not getting any EMSC data on the download

Even so, those are pretty big aftershocks of a 6.3/6.4
they may come down below 6.0 on USGS, the CWB (Taiwan) link shows this already (although they are in ML)
USGS are so inconsistent, the scientific summaries show;
6.4mww=6.3mwb
6.0mww=5.8mwb
6.1mww=6.0mwc


why do 2 in mwb and one in mwc?

The Aussies at least stick to the same magnitude types,
6.47mwp=6.02mb
6.0mwp=5.69mb
6.1mwp=5.99mb

even the Russians are consistent;
Ms 6.5=mb 6.3
Ms 5.8=mb 5.7
Ms 6.0=mb 5.8

JMA were pretty slow to get their data up, nothing on last night when I looked (NZST)
now showing (local time);
10:43 JST 20 Apr 2015 Yonagunijima Kinkai M6.8
20:45 JST 20 Apr 2015 Yonagunijima Kinkai M5.9

will have to wait until tomorrow to get the official JMA magnitudes from the Unified Hypocenter Catalog, the Preliminary NIED Catalog does not cover south of the Satsunan Islands (south of Kyushu)

For something a little different.
Remember the PNW Tremor pages that were popular for a while in years gone by? pnsn.org...
Seems Japan has the same phenomenon, NIED are running a page on Epicentral distribution of deep low-frequency tremor in southwest Japan.

Daily epicentral distribution of deep low-frequency tremor. Red circles are centroid locations obtained by a clustering method of hourly tremor activity (Obara et al., 2010), which is located by a hybrid analysis using envelope correlation and amplitude (Maeda and Obara, 2009).

here is their map for 19.04.2015JST


I ran the reviewed data from JMA below M1 through ikiBing and here's the results, matches perfectly
muzzys japan tremors map 19.04.2015 JST

its not all just about the big ones!

Just stopping by long enough to wish Mr. PuterMan a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
Hope it's the best one yet!


Quakes seem to have settled down,
but still some midlevel perking going on.
(Gratuitous quake reference to stay on topic!)

Just to add some more confusion with other types of magnitude readings.
Data in from JMA;
6.8 MLD (6.4MLV)
6.0 MLD (5.7MLV)
6.4 MLD (5.7MLV)
D : Magnitude calculated using displacement.
V : Magnitude calculated using velocity.
Normally all JMA data is given in Velocity.

JMA are claiming these as NW OFF ISHIGAKIJIMA IS although they are actually WSW of Ishigaki Island.

So what are you thinking muzzy?

Could these be foreshocks?

a reply to: crappiekat
not sure, every region is different of course, but as I said those were pretty big aftershocks, and generally there haven't been many of a lower number all up for such a strong quake.
That 1999 series shown on the graph (previous page)
went 7.7, 6.3, 6.6, 6.1, 6.8, 6.4, 6.4, 6.5 which is the "normal" deteriorating sequence
maybe this one is the same, just a bit denser between magnitudes
there doesn't seem to be any precedence for increasing magnitude when it comes to Tawian Region, especially in the short term.

would have been nice to be able to edit that post, as its only been 3.5hrs (not 4hrs like the message says) but never mind.
couple of maps Cook Strait M5.15 and aftershocks


the yellow orb is the 4.4 foreshock, foreshocks are rare in NZ. Could be more to come, the 2013 series started low.

I thought someone already posted something along these lines but can't find it. So, if I'm duplicating, sorry.

Also, the USGS, released a report on the fracking earthquakes. PBS and NPR has stories. I didn't pay attention. Of course, I am angry, but I don't want to research a dead horse. It is obvious. Luckily, Oklahoma's ancient faults have only produced one major quake. A feared bigger one may not happen. MAY. Not. I'm still not convince a nearby fault might break. New Madrid???

A nice wee earthquake in ChCh right now. Biggest for a while it seems, and went on for about 15 seconds.

Great :/

6.3, NW of Kaikoura. Probably on the Clarence Fault.

Awesome, I'm going to be in Wellington this weekend. Hope it settles down!
