I'm getting a lot of full cheese wheels, hopefully I didn't set the base line too low at 100,000KT

I might have to reset it to 476,879 KT, which is equal to 1 x M9.0, its not much use at 8.5, too many full wheels. I started in the 1990's when the energy release was in the 10's of thousands of KT, instead of the 2000's when its in the 100's of thousands.
That's the whole point of course, to be able to see this (or any other) trend, eventually over a 1700 years period.
I'll do a few random years now and see whats the best balance.

Looking forward to seeing it. I am assuming you will put in all quakes?

Looks as if Useless have changed something. There has been discussion on the real-time-feed-users email about problems and a response from USGS saying there had been an outage and "The issue that led to the outage has been resolved, and we do not expect any further interruptions."

What they forgot to say is that the address of some of the older JSON feeds had changed.

You need to change the web address for the USGS M1.0 7 day feed in QVSData to



To view the actual file: earthquake.usgs.gov...

If you are not sure how to do that PM me and I will create a help page on my blog.

 

Blogged how to do it anyway

The project is only covering earthquakes over M6.5
The reason is we are talking about Kilo Tons (KT), not Tons like I do for NZ and Japan i.e. 1KiloTon = 1000Tons
So anything below M6.5 is insignificant in relation to the overall energy release if there are some big M8's that year.
For example I just did 2014 using ANSS data. I have now set the base number to 239,006 KT, which is equal to a M8.8. M9.0 is too big a number and the yearly segments are too small. 8.8 should be a reasonable base, producing only 7 full circles in the 1700 year period.
When I downloaded the ANSS data I grabbed the M6.0-6.5 range too (98 of them), to see what % they make up, its only 2,621KT. About the same as a quiet year of M6.5-7.0's.

The cheese wheel below shows what proportion the M6.0-6.5 range is in comparison to the other bigger magnitudes combined, and the whole segment in relation to a full wheel which would be 239,006 KT.
If I included M5's as well it wouldn't make much difference.

Apologies to all those killed in quakes below M6.5, there have been thousands died in such events over the years, in places like Iran and China, even NZ (Christchurch 2011) due to old or poorly constructed building collapses. I am not saying quakes less than M6.5 are not significant, but my map part on each page would be saturated with icons if I did include them. Even dropping below M7.0 has casued me a lot of extra work on the files.

What is interesting, is in all the 1700 years worth of data there has never been a M8.9 (well not a 8.9Mw anyway)

As an experiment I have done the first 2 days of June for NZ using the same cheese wheel, but for NZ the scale is TTNT.
Looking over the daily TTNT for May I have set the base for NZ at 477TTNT, which is equal to a M5.0.
As it happensyesterday there was a 5.04 at the Kermadec Islands, so straight away we got a full circle. I tried a few things and came up with this idea. Show the extra TTNT over the 447 base as a segment with the "over 447" showing as a + figure.
I will try that with the M6.5+ project and see what comes out.
Below are the 2 days of June, these show individually on the relevant NZ pages

I just processed M5.0-6.0 data from ANSS for 2014, 1568 events, comes to 2737 KT, so again not going to make that much difference to the cheese wheels. And anything below M5.0 isn't going to be valid, as ANSS don't pick up all M4's.

I have recalibrated the cheese wheels

The base line for a full circle is anything over 239,006 Kilo Tons of energy released, approx. equal to a single Magnitude 8.8. Where the energy released in a year exceeds the base line, such as in 2004 where the Sumatra M9.0 earthquake generated 476,879KT on it's own, almost double the base line, the extra KT over the baseline value is shown as a partial segment with a + in front of the number (of KT).

eg


Now I have that sorted. And now I have connected by wire ( wifi was playing up again, HP fixed it, but its still not right) I need to approach this in a organized way, and proceed backwards.

The West Coast seems to have quieted down which is good news for me.

Just woke up from a dream where I was looking at USGS's map and it looked like a 7. something in brazil (near the centre of Brazil). My dreams are never right though, but I thought I'd record it just in case.

Proceeding backwards is always the way to go


Actually can you proceed backwards or should you just recede? On the subject of going backwards in a proceeding manner I have been playing with energy pie to day, encourage in no small way by Muzzy's plethora of pies. I have been upgrading the QVSData program to create the charts I used to do in the Weekly Geophysical Reports that 1/7,000,000,000th of the world population read each week since that saves so much time and may equally be of interest to 1 person.

I plan to create pies - rhubarb, banoffi, custard, treacle and earthquake data if the latter is of interest. I can show some examples if you would like.

Yeah what you got?

Good to see you posting again.
I was getting sick of the bar graphs and line graphs I was doing.
There are probably heaps more options on Excel 2010, I'm actually running Excel 2007, but with a few Spreadsheets I got off the internet and then integrated into Ex2007.

I would see that as extremely bad news. Terrible news.

Sphincter quivering news in fact.

You do not want quiet on the quietest segment of the ring of fire.

Out of respect to those killed in earthquakes less than M6.5 I have changed the name of the Blog to "Strongest Earthquakes". Same address though. I think that better describes what is inside.
Yeah, if half a city is destroyed and dozens of people are killed by a M6.2 then that's significant. But I can't go that low (at this stage) without coloured icons. Hopefully Microsoft will eventually bring their icons into the 21st Century soon, or I figure out a way to do interactive mapping without depending on a 3rd party not being open for business 24/7.
I still can't see what maintenance wikimaps did on the 3 days they were offline, my maps are still there, as well as thousands of one off maps European retailers created just to advertise their location for free.

Muzzy, just a thought I had. Please think about it cause it may seem just a little crazy at first.

Bar graphs are REALLY good for showing the differences between years but they are really and epically boring.

What about if your bar graph was made up of tiny images similar to this but with the size in KT



Just a thought.

I know what you mean. Good idea.
Hey what about sticks of dynamite stacked up the bars?
each stick could represent 1 Ton (or KT) or whatever
I'll look into it.
I tried doing split pie charts for NZ energy, but if there is a big M4 or a M5 it doesn't really work.
here is what a couple looked like. Its the same problem as the earlier ones I did for the M6.5+ project, fitting the numbers in.

All this talk of cheese wheels, slices, pies (pumpkin pie is my favourite) and now this.
I'm still capturing the Hakone swarm in Japan daily.
The activity has moved south again away from the Botanical Gardens where it has been centred for about a week, now its between the On Hots Springs (Hotel?) and
"Owakudani black eggs Museum"
maybe its the translation?
black eggs, whats that about I wonder?
and why would they have a Museum of them?

I get the location names on Google maps, they now have little icons of locations of interest, on the GM it is in Japanese, but its easy enough to copy and paste the text and translate on Google Translate.
I still use Google for stuff, its just the dumping of Google Maps Classic that got me so pissed off.
