Man, I don't know... All of the recent significant quakes were between 6.0-7.2 (and some of them myseriously downgraded rarely you see an upgrade).

I think people tend to forget that the strongest Earthquake this year so far was a 8.5 and it came out of nowhere. They were very lucky that it was very deep.

No doubt this could happen again at a more shallow level in my opinion when people least expect it.

Oh yeah? where was that?
The largest quake this year (or even in the last 12 months) was a 7.9 at the Bonin Islands

I think thats the one I'm talking about. It was initially 8.5 on multiple sites and then 'Downgraded' and it was very deep.

The problem we have we'll never find out what quakes are downgraded for a reason. Measurements can be inaccurate. OK.
But why is it only rarely the other way around? It makes no sense at all unless the sensors are somehow calibrated in a comically over sensitive way which would make even less sense because their goal is to receive accurate measurements. no?

it's really worth it to be sceptical about certain things. So here's your answer...

Edit: I'm not saying it was 8.5 (i'm not god sorry about that) but thats the number that sticks in my brain.

It's not that they upgrade or downgrade, it is that they change the magnitude type.
Initially when USGS post a quake it is usually mb, and you will find that the mb never changes.
They try to end up with a Mw, there are 4 types of Mw; Mww, Mwp, Mwc, Mwb
types of magnitude
That Bonin Is. quake had a Me reading of;
Me_hf (high frequency) of 8.66 or Me_bb (broadband) 8.28
ds.iris.edu...
Me is the measurement of radiated energy released, and is almost always higher than any of the other readings, but not always.

But the whole point is you have to try and standardize things so that you can compare apples with apples, quakes with quakes, there is no use comparing that Bonin as 8.28Me_bb to say the next biggest quake in the last 12 months, the Nepal quake, at 7.8Mww type. You need to compare it at Me for both (Nepal 7.68Me_bb) or Mww for both. (Bonin 7.8Mww, Nepal, 7.8Mww).
Doing otherwise is selective cherry picking to suit an agenda.
It appears the two quakes chosen have the same magnitude in Mww, but when you look closer the Bonin Is. quake released a lot more energy.
I know its complicated, I drives me crazy when I am processing the data for my maps, that is why I try and show the Me if it is available. Back in the 80's Me was the main magnitude type used for larger quakes.
The biggest contributors to the confusion is the MSM, journalists not doing their research, how many times do you hear on TV News "blah blah blah a quake measuring 7.8 on the Richter Scale hit Nepal today ......". It wouldn't have been The Richter scale which is only useful for quakes below 5 and has slowly been phased out since the 1970's, although the places that have the most quakes such as Japan, California, New Zealand, Greece, Turkey and China still use it.
There is a big gap in the education of the general public in regards to earthquake sizes.

My question was not a personal attack on what you said, I just wondered if I missed something since I posted the data for the earlier part of 2015, I usually give it a week to ensure any adjustments have been made (more magnitude types added) by the networks, and rarely go back later to re-check. When I got back past 1900 it was interesting to see how the magnitude types had been changed recently to Mw, as old data is usually in Ms, the people at the GEM Foundation have been doing a lot of cold case work.

Seeing a unstable Pacific ocean near Australia ,New Zeland , Philippines and Japan. Expect a very large quake to occur in this area from now till the end of Saturday.

interesting one. Huge differences in depth in that region. one day it's 10 km the other day it's something like '450'

Its a subduction zone, dipping east to west, trenches, ridges, islands, troughs, more ridges, basins, in that order
this is the region in white(the clear section inside the box is "Kermadec Islands", thats another area.)

this cross section of that map with some earthquakes plotted by depth, shows the slope of the plate subduction, most of the quakes are on the underside of the Australian Plate on the west side.

Thought this might be of interest, seeing as there is so much activity lately at the Solomon Islands
SOLOMON ISLANDS BIGGEST200 2007-2015 data from EMSC, map by Bing, sorted biggest first. 200 is the limit of icons Bing can show.

Also
the last 200 , latest first. That map includes part of the April 2014 SOLOMON-BOUGAINVILLE PING-PONG MATCH SERIES. Politically Bougainville Is. is part of PNG, but geologically it is part of the Solomon Islands.

and the April 2014 SOLOMON-BOUGAINVILLE PING-PONG MATCH SERIES itself, also last first.

Hi muzzy,

I love that earthquake depth plot.

Did you create that? If it's not super hard, could you teach me how to do that?

Done with the help of IRIS
if you go here and look down in the right hand menu, you will see 3D viewer.
To start you click on the "select region" button on the left hand side and select a box area, then click on "3D viewer", and then use "view" to tilt and rotate.
its a great tool.

When I saw that, I too went Hmmm...

So I went here.

earthquake.usgs.gov...

So they do have a history. That plate is being pushed and is scrunching up.

LOL! Sorry for the Non Technical terms.
