Kumamoto update link
5 days passed since last update, 1620 new events added, 8 bundles of 197 and the last 44, energy released total new 11.2 TTNT
to end of 13th Aug JST.
Total events now 11,322
So it has been going for 121 days or 4 months now, 14Apr-14Aug 2016

Since the data surge on 27th Jul in the 18 days since there have been 4187 events below M1 and 517 of M1-M2
Sure there were below M1 events before that, but not as many, in the 18 days prior to the 27th Jul there were only 505 below M1 and 180 of M1-M2.
Looking at the 197 area graph you can see a recent surge in the Northern Oita section on bundle/map 50, it's at Yufuogen Golf Club, 32 events, but they are not very big magnitudes. That area only threw up a 5.4 and a 4.5 during the series, but enough aftershocks to include them, because the whole islandof Kyushu has a fault running from SW to NE which was effected.
Sometimes with the NZ Topo map the whole series won't load completely, so if you are focusing on one spot (like looking at the Yufuogen Golf Club area for example) you may have to delete cookies to get the latest version to load (Internet properties/delet Browsing History and check Cookies and website data if you are using Firefox) or even refresh the page a few times or at worst close and restart Firefox (or whatever browser you use).

For comparison a couple of other big aftershock series that I have studied in recent times;
At the same point (elapsed time of 2906hrs/4 months)
The El Major-Cucapah, Baja M7.0 series of 2010 had had 22,086 events
L'Aquilla M6.3 series of 2009 had 14,685
Van, Turkey M7.2 series of 2011 had 8786

some others of note which were long but didn't come as close to those numbers within the first 4 months
SW off Kyushu had 2551
Dusky Sound NZ M7.6 2009 series had 2468
Canterbury 2010-11 M7.1 had 3807

Well there you go, that little swarm at the Golf Club might have been a warning that something was about to snap
Not quite inside the Northern Oita area but pretty dam close, listed as IYONADA SETONAIKAI
www.jma.go.jp...
JMA are saying 4.3ML, but
GFZ had 4.7mb

AQUA are saying 4.5Mw
If so that makes it the 2nd equal biggest quake in that NE Kyushu area since the Kumamoto series started

I'm not at my computer, but a quick look at California makes me nervous that a doozy of a quake may be in the works on the east side of the Sierra Nevada/Walker Lane.

It just seems like an uptick in diffuse activity down a very long stretch of real estate.

TA, Puter's, Muzzy, you fellows around?

Do you have a link to a good map illustrating that, please?

Do you mean Walker Lake?
If so yeah there has been some activity a little while back 2-3 days ago, but less so today, all look very small magnitudes
www.seismo.unr.edu...
There is quite a bit going on SSW of Hawthorne, more so than the last time I looked which was about a month ago.
Mammoth Lakes is looking a bit bumpy too.
those 2 x M3's on the 13th will have some residual smaller aftershocks

Walker Lane is what the main portion of the fault zone is called along the eastern edge the mountains. It heads up toward Lake Tahoe and South towatd the Owen's valley.

It is probably just microquake business as usual, but for some reason grabbed my attention. I'll calm down about it.

Thanks for your quick reply.

Sorry Bo Xi'an, I'm not clever enough to link the usgs map image from my phone.

Thanks anyway.

No problem, I just happened to be on at the time you posted
Is Walkers Lane a locals slang name for the area?
Who is this Walker fellow?
So Mammoth Lakes/Long Valley was part of what you referred to?

Aye.
Australia is getting the shakes more than NZ these last couple of years!
Of course we consider the eastern seaboard of Au as "the interior" of the Australian Plate, NZ is on the edge of it.
5.7 further south along the coast offshore E of Fraser Island 1st October last year

E of Fukushima 5.6 of 15.08.2016,new page, 443 aftershocks in 4 days, usual stuff, NZ topo map, Bing maps, timeline graph and waveform graphs.
I usually trim down the search area for the actual cluster itself, but E off Fukushima is such an active area it is hard to tell what is directly related to the 5.6 and what is just background activity, so I have just put the whole JMA area on, anything after the 5.6 timewise, basically 70km radius, the main cluster is about 15km east to west x 6km north to south.

a reply to: Anneke

the JMA call this area FAR E OFF SANRIKU
guess I'll be making a page for this one as well
I'll have a look at the preliminary data on NIED, like the USGS map the Japan map is showing two areas moving, one from the 5.3 and one from the 6's

It sux that USGS don't show the local time any more!, I used to use that to find where the quake might be on the NIED list, its just a page with 583 lines of text and hard to focus on the magnitude when you are searching.
Na, they are not on there, must be too far offshore for the automated system to pick up, will have to wait 2-3 days for the reviewed data.
