I had a great screenshot of the seismo in Nilore, Pakistan of this via GEE, but the stupid computer didn't actually save it when I hit save. Ate it or something instead < pouts >

If it interests anyone, here's one from the same seismo from the IRIS site:

I'm going to have to "pie" the NZ 2014 blog.

I spent a lot of time creating the map screenshots in Feb this year, but they are pretty useless for doing quick research.
I'm using the daily pages to cross reference the M5's to create the full year 2014 energy graph. Geonet's database search doesn't cover the Kermadecs, although they do show them on daily data. I'm missing 4 x M6's and 26 x M5's from that region for 2014.
I have to go get and then use them because it would be an unfair comparison, with other years which show that area.
On the 2015 page you can find the M5's on the pies at a glance by the orange slices, on 2014 its hopeless.

In 2014 there were 69 M5+ events on the Zealandia continent.
there were also 55 days when the TTNT was below 10.

that gives an average of a M5+ every 5.29 days or a base line of a 15.1% chance an M5 will happen anyway.

rightclickviewimage and then click on the + sign, the image is MASSIVE, 4299pixels wide, you will probaBly have to scroll as well.

BTW, if you are only looking at the arrow axis at the bottom of the graph, the dots are the~10 TTNT count days, and the arrowheads are the M5 days. I used those to work out the numbers and %.

2014 shows the chance of an M5 after a ~10TTNT count (day) was only 40% and the chances one wouldn't happen was 35%.
The chances of a M5 hitting without any prior warning was 25%.
Pretty even split.

Back to the drawing board.

I know it worked before when I first seen it back before 2010, I think then it was 75% chance or something like that.
Maybe 2014 was an unusual year, there certainly were a lot of earthquakes 5+ at and around the Kermadecs.

Hawaii sure has been quiet the last week after they had the 5...

makes me nervous as they have been shaking for a little while and the sudden quiet...
Just eerie.

Thanks didn't even see that until i changed it to all mag's was used to looking at 2.5 and up.

just listing a few only saw 2 over 2.5.

2.6 and a 2.8

Ofcourse a bunch of smaller ones just two more over the 2 mark.

Hope this 6.8 wasn't a foreshock but I doubt it.

It's the strongest in quite some time and I belive none of the quakes around mag. 7 were foreshocks this year.
strong one anyway.

If they had the Internet and ATS Quake Watch 129 years ago, I bet on 1 Sept 1886 after the 7.3 Mw earthquake at Charleston, South Carolina, US, it might have started with;
"Charleston and all the coast country had been swept away by a mighty tidal wave and that the Florida peninsula had been snapped off from the continent in the general cataclysm and fallen into the sea"

Actual source for that was "Lesson Learned from the Charleston Quake; How the Southern City was Rebuilt Finer than ever within Four Years." San Francisco Chronicle, May 6, 1906; San Francisco, California. Online at:

No one seems to be visiting the 1800's pages I have created on !!??!!!

As the project goes back in time there are fewer and fewer events to list (only 2 for 1886), although that doesn't mean the energy pies get smaller, just take a look at 1899 (225,54 KT) and 1897 (493,816).
Because the Centennial List data started at 1900, I am now depending on NOAA for the basic pre-1900 data and damage info, plus UTSU, and now from a new site I found run by GEM called Global Historical Earthquake Archive, sponsored by British Geological Society and INGV (the Italians)
Each item lists the sources for the magnitudes, with locations, and in many cases Intensity reports. I was surprised at the accuracy of the magnitudes, with Mw showing up a lot, these are events that have been re-researched by the relevant source recently. This page is giving me many extra earthquakes that NOAA haven't listed pre 1900.
Unfortuneatly Bing maps sometimes cuts short the text damage descriptions in the popup tags, so that doesn't leave room for source acknowledgement beyond listing the name/s. I have put further references in the About page.

Since the retardation of Google Maps Classic in Feb 2015 I have managed to cobble together enough other platforms to enable the continuation of 9 years of earthquake mapping to a reasonable extent.
the hardest has been Japan.
Bing Maps with coloured icons CAN be done, but its a long process, and involves depending on ikiMaps to host the KMZ file, sometimes their site goes down for days on end. Also they have a limit of 200 icons (events).
NZ Topo Maps works, but you have to use the slider to bring up either Google Satellite or Road Maps. Another downside is there is no list to go with it, so if you are looking specically for one event then you have to do it by eye and colour coding to find it.
This issue arose today when I uploaded 12/07/2015's data.
There was a M5.7 at SOUTHERN OITA PREF
Where the heck is that?
Its not a common place that shows up.
I look at the Google Map off NZ Topo and I can't see the Orange Orb/Icon anywhere!

zoomed in and around a bit before I seen a cluster of icons at the north west corner of Kyushu is.
Ah ha there it is, behind a bunch of blue M1 icons (aftershocks).

Too hard?

So I redid the KMZ file to show the biggest magnitude at the top (#1) and loaded that file to Bing maps.
Ha! there it is, number 1 on the List, click the text and pop goes the tag showing the location on the map.

At this point I have put a link at the bottom of the 12.07.2015 page to the Bing Map. The NZ Topo map still has value, as I can't load Bing directly to the Blog as an interactive map, but I may transition Japan over to Bing anyway.
Will do it for a week or so like this and see how it pans out.
Any thoughts?

I posted that posted on Jul, 15 2015 @ 03:04 PM it is now 5:21 PM, approx 2 1/4 hours after
"You have exceeded the maximum window of 4 hours allowed to edit your post."
come on guys get that fixed!

Anyway I came back to say I have shifted the Bing map link to the top of each page, easier not to miss it.
How many people actually scroll down that far anyway?
