Yeah it is frustrating in the early stages of an event.
As far as the M6.5+ project goes, for 2015 I'm using Wilber3/SPUD as the basis for the IRIS/USGS NEIC/GCMT data for each event, their Energy page has
all three plus the two Me readings.
Saves a lot of web page searching. But you have to wait about half a day for them to do the work. The only reading it doesn't show is Ms, you have to
go to GCMT itself to get that, often it is the same as Mw, but not always. The Russians usually do a Ms along with mb.
In the meantime (first few hours) I could put up the Mww, Mwp, Mwb, Mo off USGS , but what does it really mean?, they are usually all within 0.1 mag
Here is the IRIS page for the Fox Is. 6.9
Because I focus a lot on energy released, note Me_bb is 6.68, as I said originally it looked more like a 6.7.
