September 1984, Japan, Whoa! 3 big series in 30 days!

japanquakes.blogspot.co.nz...
also in 1984
8.1, 01/01/1984 09:03:27, SE OFF KII PENINSULA
7.6, 24/04/1984 04:11:26, NEAR TORISHIMA IS
7.0, 06/08/1984 19:06:39, HYUGANADA REGION

NEAR TORISHIMA IS shows up a lot in 1984, as it does today, it appears to be a bit like our Kermdec Islands, near a volcano and the area puts out some big quakes.
HYUGANADA REGION 7.0 is the same spot as that 5.2 and 39 aftershocks end of last month, this year.
Back then the NIED Network didn't seem to have the siesmos out in the far reaches of the Japan Islands and the big quakes didn't show many (if any) aftershocks, but they surely did have them.

I'm still watching this area. I don't know why. I checked Chalis, Idaho, and there was a coincidental earthquake, although small. I went hmmm. Then I checked the times and did another hmmm, because the Chalis, preceded the 4.7M. There wasn't even anything above 2.5M in Oregon. So, I can't blame it on Oregon. Exactly? hugh?

Ignore me.

The Moment Tensor shows 4.7Mwr. I have never seen Mwr before , not sure what the r stands for?
I think they just make this stuff up.....
then shows 4.8Mw (clean)

That makes it the biggest earthquake yet at Bald Mountain Nevada, since it all started on 12/07/2014

I don't know if I would call it a "swarm", a swarm is when there is no definitive Main shock, which in this case there is,
so therefore the recent surge of smaller quakes are aftershocks of the 4.8Mw.
but in the long term the 4.8Mw is part of a bigger longer swarm, at Bald Mountain, NEVADA
Nevada Seismological Laboratory only showing 12 aftershocks at the moment
Note on their Moment Tensor page they are also showing that big quake at 4.8Mw.

I'll download and process the NSL data after dinner and do that timeline graph.
Damn hillbillies use PDT, not UTC, I'll have to convert.

One of the few big quakes all the networks agreed on the magnitude ........... 6.6Mw/Ms
Russians add more info with 6.2mb
That one adds 120 kilotons to the tally, 32,105 Kilo Tons for this year, pretty quiet so far, if we don't get a M7+ before the end of the year it will be the quietest for 15 years.

Thats a Major Quake watch alert, people! Earthquake swarms usually are low magnitude but all of the following swarms had at least a 4 pointer in them. Possible Foreshocks?

in short:
4.8 Earthquake swarm in Alaska weeks ago
then

6.9 downgraded to 6.6 EQ Gulf of california

+Earthquake swarm in Neveda days ago

and now

Earhquake swarm in Taiwan! (althought they could be aftershocks of a 5 pointer from 2 hours ago but still a SWARM)

You are using the wrong terminology for what you describe.
As I mentioned to WOQ on a recent post
a Swarm is when there is no definitive Main shock.
In the case of Gulf of California 6.6 there were foreshocks, main shock (6.6) and aftershocks
Bald Mt. (ESE of Lakeview, Oregon) had a 4.7 and a bunch of aftershocks,
Those quakes S of Atka, Alaska were foreshocks, mainshock (5.9) and aftershocks, not sure where you get 4.5 swarm from
Wikipedia has a good article on Earthquake Swarms
I think you need to read the USGS's Glossary of terms
I think what you are trying to do is make events fit your quest to be able to predict future events ......
good luck with that, many here have tried, few have succeded (i'm not one of those)

If its a Swarm you are looking for you don't need to go any further than Oklahoma, today a possible swarm developing
4.0 3km WNW of Cushing, Oklahoma 2015-09-16 02:30:02 UTC 7.3 km
2.9 4km WNW of Cushing, Oklahoma 2015-09-15 21:08:47 UTC 2.4 km
2.6 4km WNW of Cushing, Oklahoma 2015-09-15 20:42:06 UTC 3.5 km
2.8 5km WNW of Cushing, Oklahoma 2015-09-15 20:29:54 UTC 3.8 km
although the M4.0 might be the biggest and if there are more smaller aftershocks it just becomes a normal foreshoc, mainshock, aftershock series
And those are probably man made ( Fracking) anyway so don't count.

Actually WIkipedia is wrong in the case of the 2011 Christchurch "swarms", which were in fact long period of aftershocks of a M7.0 earthquake.

@muzzy (the reply button doesn't react for some funny reason)

good points there.

What you said may count for Nevada but Alaska and Taiwan swarm i mentioned had NO clear/definitive mainshock. Look it up. In fact I just stumbled across this Taiwan quake.

Magnitude 5.5 (Felt earthquake,Downgraded to 5.2))
Region TAIWAN
Date time 2015-09-16 13:09:00.1 UTC
Location 24.30 N ; 121.89 E
Depth 15 km

www.emsc-csem.org...

And btw there was a 6.3 like six hour ago in the Molucca Sea region (Thats below Taiwan on the world map but shouldn't be viewed as definitive shock as there is still a considerable distance in between. May be related though)

Magnitude 6.3
Region MOLUCCA SEA
Date time 2015-09-16 07:40:57.3 UTC
Location 1.92 N ; 126.57 E
Depth 30 km
