you do lurk often don't you, I thought I might get this one in first @ 1hr 43min ago
too late

JMA are 6.1ML

Fudge, it couldn't have happened at a worse time, my NIED account is closed for renewal. Hopefully they get it running again by the morning, I'm waiting for their e-mail to continue.
Shouldn't have left it until the last minute.

Just when I thought the aftershocks from the 14th Feb Canterbury M5.7 were over (no events on the 29th) it comes back with the 6th biggest aftershock so far (out of 393)

I'm back on the ring of fire now so I will be keeping a much closer eye on the Alaskan coast.

Where I am at is pretty sheltered so if there ever is a tsunami I should be ok,
however in 2012 they had a 7.5 here,
so the shaking could happen. I've never been in an EQ so to me it is kind of exciting in a weird

Question for the few remaining regular readers/posters

When you look at an interactive map for an area, say a days worth or a weeks worth, or even a series of 200 earthquakes,

what preference for the order by number do you have
by date?
by magnitude?

reason I ask is with Japan NIED fiddling around with my Registration, I can't get any Jap data, and it being a rainy Saturday here, I thought I would have another go at China.
I did China when Google Maps were working properly, for a couple of years.
I think it's worth the effort, as it is near impossible to get daily or ANY interactivity from the Peoples Republic.
We are looking at daily, ie less than 200 per day, unless there is a big event.
China (Mainland) has been quiet lately hasn't it?

Kronos begat Zues. Time is everything. (I hope I used begat properly)

As for magnitude, I'm so obsessed with Hawthorne that the thought of magnitude boggles my mind. And, I'm sure you know you don't need to explain it to me, I'm making the point that it's kind of complicated. Being a student of quake watch I have learned about the Richter Scale and all the different opinions from different countries and their calculations. I've explained that I wished they'd all get along and make one scale, one system to judge magnitude. I am continuously frustrated whenever I am tracking one particular earthquake and I can't find a listing, or if I want to cross reference I can only find one source if I'm lucky. The other day I was going to freak out about harmonic tremor at Yellowstone until I cross-referenced with another source and realized I was over-reacting. One source looked like the end of the world, and yet when I checked the second source the graph looked like a snow plow.

Right now, there's question marks for magnitudes and some of the rest are in the negative range. All I know is that there is a list with almost sixty new earthquakes. So to my mind, wow, it's a spike. Yet, I know that the real energy is not that much when I guesstimate at the total energy in terms of magnitude.

Heck, I don't even know if I know what the heck is going on when it comes to the fault itself. For example, locations. When I'm looking at the map the locations are all over the place. Yet, in my dumb mind I keep thinking that if these earthquakes are on the same fault the should line up neatly. I know there is much more to know when it comes to the different faults with the differing depths. So, when you take in all the factors, it all gets very complex.

Again, when studying the increases you found in Mexico, we don't even know if the increase is an actual event, or, just the increase in data due to more detection seismographs in remote places.

Can't see the forest for the trees. How many trees are on earth?

It's a harder question to answer than you think.

Muzzy, keep counting.

Some one has to do it. And keep being independent. The best innovations come from outside the box, and outside the "official channels". Oh, the knowledge and ideas always migrate to the center, because they most often originate on the fringes and extremes, and have no where else to go.

Oh, I'm still watching Nicaragua. One tonight was near five M offshore.

As to your comment on China, holy moley, all of Asia is on the quiet side for the whole month.

And, if they're not just being slow to update, Mexico is slow today.

Oh My GOD. OMG. OR, OH MY GODS> this is why I'm going back over my Greek Mythology. There are two Cronoses. One is Kronos, and the other is Chronos. And history has mixed up the two and now my brain is hemorrhaging, Good night moon.

Yep, I agree, my preference would be chronological too.

Thank you for keeping us informed!

I just posted a long question for you,

And it disappeared. I am so pissed right now.


I am gone.

Thank you Muzzy. I will catch ya tomorrow.

That question/survey result surprises me.
Take an example, the 2nd page 02.01.2016 I have posted on chinaearthquakes (real blog name is eastasiaearthquakes, as was already taken BUT HAS NEVER BEEN USED by the person who opened the account)
There is a 6.1 in there, but if you don't know what number it is, you have to slowly scroll down through the list to find it.
It is number 36 BTW.
I prefer the big quakes listed at the top (as per NZ and Japan) easier to find them.

However if that is the preferred choice I will keep with the time sequence.
I need to adjust the CSS to make Flipcard the opening view, like NZ and Japan.

Geez there have been 43 views already just while I had 01.01.2016 up and was adjusting the HTML to get the right feel.
China might be popular!.
Damn, Bing maps with KMZ/L data just can't be posted as interactive maps.

Now I have a couple of posts up I will get back to March/April tomorrow.

edit on 04000000929216 by muzzy because: edit: I just went back and added (#36) beside the M6=1 in the text summary so it's easier to find

I suppose doing it by time sequence it will allow me to be able to split a day into 2 maps or more as necessary if the numbers run over 200.
That is why I went with top mag on Japan, often some of those run to 200+ a day, especially after a M7

Yeah that can drive you insane eh.
I have that trouble with my e-mails, type away a big message then when you click send it asks you to log in again because it timed out and when you do your 10 minute missive is not there anymore! aaarrrrghhh
I use Notepad now and write everything up until I'm finished, then copy and paste it into e-mail (or here on ATS too)

I checked to see where there was a 7.5 in 2012 and it was either;
7.4-2012/12/7-Off East Coast of Honshu, Japan
7.7-2012/9/5-Costa Rica
7.2-2012/8/31-Philippi​ne Trench, E of Sulangan, Philippines
7.3-2012/8/27-o/s El Salvador
7.7-2012/8/14-Sea of Okhotsk
7.4-2012/3/20-Oaxaca, Mexico

and I didn't think you were there
maybe 7.4-2012/11/7-o/s Guatemala

so the only one left in that range with a quake the size you referred to must be the
7.7-2012/10/28-Queen Charlotte Islands, Canada
Date/Time: 2012/10/28 3:4:6

Here is a link to information on it:

And here is from the local paper:

That should give you the information you need!

It happened Jan 5th 2013, sorry about the date mix up.

Still testing the water with China.
Have spent hours translating the characters on the pages of their site into English to find the data I was after.
It seems nothing is available live or more recent than a day old.
the newest data I have managed to obtain is 01/04/2016 (at 6am 03/04/2016NZST)
I will keep working on it.
Actually the number of quakes is disappointing, less than 100 per day, about the same as NZ gets.
You would think a country that size would have more earthquakes.
I guess being old rock..............

When I went back and looked I realized my error.
