Happy Birthday Mr. PuterMan.

If I recall correctly, your Birthday is the 21st.

Hope you had a good day, and you and yours are well.

Wow, these aftershocks are coming in fast and big.

Was looking at IRIS SPUD and noticed this new feature, it looks like it is under testing, I think it is quite good, not all that detailed (as much as I do) but it shows various aftershock Graphs and Maps of major quakes and even has animations
Animations and figures of aftershocks automatically generated following large global earthquakes (Mag > 7).

here is the graph and map for the Nepal quake already
(images are 800pixels wide so you may have to rightclickviewimage to see it full size)

To use the Query Form, Tick the box of the quake you want, click the download button, it will give you a zip file, which you can open with IE and extract the files. By default mine saves to Documents, but you cn save the extracted files anywhere by selection

It will be interesting to come back in 10 days and see what it looks like then

I was only able to sustain doing the Japan ikiBing maps for 20 days, its just too time consuming!
Have reverted to NZ Topo Map, all I have to do is change the date number on the template, same as NZ, but unfortunately you have to use the slider again to see the background map

The visitors have been dropping steadily anyway since the 18th, looks like they only come if there is something big happening.
The only advantage of the Bing over NZ Topo is the List the Bing pops up beside the Map.
Possibly will replace with a Time versus Magnitude graph like this one? on each page

I could even clutter that up and add some labels, if there aren't too many M4+'s, only uses another 5k of data storage

Hey PuterMan,

The Nepal quake must have put out alot of energy, I know you have discussed world energy.

Do you think this release will quiet thing down for a while. I know you have a scale somewhere that shows past energy history. But I am having a hard time finding it. Got a new computer and lost alot of sites.

If you have the time, I would appreciate it much.

Thank You,

Hi crappiecat, if you are meaning one of my stress charts I will get some data together and calculate one.

Mag 4+ events so far (date is the day number)

Date, Events, GJ, Mag equiv
2015-115, 31, 32468608.7, 7.81 Mw
2015-116, 4, 723348.6, 6.71 Mw

Thanks for the birthday wishes. Yes we are alive and well and yes the 21st was the day.

Your stress chart is below. A bit of an explanation in case people have forgotten.

What I do is take the weekly cumulative value in Terajoules of all earthquakes of Magnitude 5 and over recorded for the region, in this case seismic region 310 - NEPAL. Generally I take values for each week from 1900 to 2000 from the Centennial catalogue, and from 2000 to the current date or end point from ANSS data I have collected. The average value in TJ is calculated for the period and this is used as the 'addition' to stress for each period. Starting at 1900 for each week the stress value is added, and the value of any earthquake events is subtracted. I adjust the starting value so that the chart does not dip below zero at any point.

You can see on the Nepal chart that this indicates that stress was slowly building and not much was released until these recent events. IF that is a valid indicator then it would suggest that for the time being no major events will occur in seismic region 310 BUT that does not make any allowance for stress transfer that may have occurred within th region as a result of the latest quakes.

Whilst this is not a particularly 'scientific' method I have found it to be a reasonable indicator in the few I have tried.

Hope that was what you were looking for. PM

Yes. Thank you PuterMan.

Now I'm off to clean fish.

I will be diving into this later.

Talking to myself and saying - over on another thread I just posted a stress chart of the adjoining region Nepal-India border where the may be sufficient stress for a Mag 8

I don't know if any of you went and had a look at that IRIS link and downloaded the zip file with the various graphs, maps and vid, but I found the Text list of events doesn't match the map with the aftershocks.
The latest guess is that the star is the Main Shock

The text list converted to map

the 7.9 is in a different place, I think it is due to the data being supplied by GCMT, they tend to put the location away from where it actually was, for whatever reason I have no clue.

Death toll over 2000 now

Due to wifi connection issues I've had boot up my old Notebook with Vista on it, and came onto ATS
Then I realised my Firefox didn't have the Adblock addon installed.
It was so bad you couldn't find the post text in between the ads.
All good now. Ads Gone

how anyone could follow the discussion with all those advts I don't know.

I must be hearing things,
thought I heard on the radio a 7.3 quake hit Mexico City this morning
can't find anything
or even a historical quake on this date.
Thought at the time, that won't have a good outcome

Still a couple of minor quakes on the Awatere and Clarence Faults each day after the M6.1 of the 24th
I have plotted the Clarence Fault and have loaded it to the 28th Map along with the Awatere F.
Sorry about the quality of the screenshot, I'm having to use my Notebook instead of Laptop

It was being tweeted about, but nobody could find anything about it.

thanks for the link, I rarely stray from Q Watch or V Watch on ATS, all the Topics I have read always end up in a slanging match regardless of what they are about.
So the twits on tweeter posted false information, and the MSM soaked it up like a sponge.
Our local radio station really struggles for News, there isn't much happening in my town, they must scan Twitter and Facebook to try and be the first with breaking news, without checking it out (source).
I only really listen to that station to hear if some idiot has crashed their car on the way into the city and blocked the road for us other commuters.
