I'm putting the NZ ones on because there is no where else that publishes them.
Unless you do a search yourself and download the data.

If you don't think a 20+ event swarm of minor earthquakes 10-15km from a town with the population of 19,000 is significant enough to note???


Everyone can read the 4.5+ on the USGS, EMSC or GEOFON web sites, so I ask YOU why bother posting THOSE here??

You have a point. Just a reminder.

Suggested usage of the the thread

[edit on 17/5/2010 by PuterMan]


I disagree, as mentioned in my last post, the 4+ can be seen anywhere on the Networks.
What should be included is perhaps the posters comment on what is significant about their post/event, not just cut an paste data.

Because at 4.5 or higher theres more chance of something being affected? Say a 7.2 you may expect a little more happening because of it. Feel free to add 2`s and 3`s but hey it turns a thread sour and people lose interest?

Latitude, Longitude 36.62°S, 177.07°E
Focal Depth 5 km

Richter magnitude 4.6

Region Raukumara Plain, North Island, New Zealand

Location

* 100 km north of White Island
* 120 km east of Whitianga
* 130 km north-east of Whangamata
* 140 km north-east of Tauranga
* 210 km east of Auckland


Heres an example of mis-information ( Geonets not MoorfNZ's) about location.
If you put the co-ordinates on Google Earth or MAps it no where near the Raukumara Plain, which is waaaaay to the east on the other side of the Colville Ridge.
This event is at the Ngatoro Basin.
Same with that one yesterday near me, it was listed on Geonet as NW of Upper Hutt, which is on the other side of the Tararua Ranges from where the quake was, it should have read E of Paraparaumu.

Surely picking up on this mis-information is one of the reasons we are here isn't it?

I'm kind of amazed at the lack of any decent activity all day according to the USGS and equake. At first I was thinking my equake wasn't updating but then looking at the usgs site we haven't really had much movement at all today.

Boring day

Sure, a 7.2 is pretty well guaranteed its going to have aftershocks, and that may be of interest, I liked Putermans graphs they are worthwhile
. We don't need a list of them all though.
I read a post here from someone on the spot on a boat at anchor at Phuket, reporting in after the Indonesian 7.2, that was interesting


What loses my interest is cut and pastes I already seen on the Networks, so I slide by them.

I try to keep my posts to NZ >3.0, and swarms, or Kermadec/Tonga not reported on USGS.
If you wanted to see ALL the NZ quakes (and maps) you can see my blog which has a link to it on my profile.

In creating the maps I make KMZ files from the data. I pondered posting those here instead of the lists of 3.0+, but not sure how many readers have Google Earth or are even interested.

Sorry not to get back to you. I have not got that one yet, but I have Algeria > 4.0 from 2002. It makes 2010 look pretty quiet!



Oregon (Offshore) One month to today - full to show lat and lon. I don't consider on land to be offshore!



A whole year - still leaves Jan 2010 as the busiest.



And just for good measure as it has been talked about. Mount Hood 30 days



And one year



All graphed out now!

I see ATS Quake Watch doesn't go back prior to 2004.

And there is no Quake Watch 2005 whats up with that?

That data is ANSS.

There were actually 841 recorded quakes in the database for the period, of which 174 are on the graph as 4.0+

There will have been more than that however since the ANSS data below 4.0 seems to stop at the end of 2008. There are also a number - and I mean quite a few dozen - unknown mags as well which obviously are not in the graph but are included in the number 841.

Most on here will have GE, and yes I am interested.

I am not sure how you would distribute them here using ATS, so if you don't have a sharing site you can use one of my folders. There is plenty of space on that.

oddsandends.4shared.com...

This has read/write so you can upload/download create sub folder etc

Go easy on the other posters, folks.

Not everyone (myself included) has the knowledge to comment on a quake that they, for whatever reason, feel is worthy of listing on here. In the main we're now refraining from any small quakes that aren't widely reported. I can see why Austria, for instance, may have posted the 2.6 as, to him and others, it may seem like an "out of place" event, depending on how many of the world's quake monitoring networks you're monitoring. .

Well thats very kind of you Sir


However I already use Dropbox to store them, so I can put the interactive Google Map version on my Blog. Dropbox is good because if/when you update the data later and load it it writes over the existing file.

I use GPSVisualiser to make the KMZ files, which are formatted and tweeked by myself after downloading them CSV files from Geonets's Search.
I have a KMLCSV converter on my computer too, but its easier at GPSVisualiser. The KMLCSV Converter works either way, you can download it from here KMLCSV Converter

Its taken me 4 years to get to where I can get a days data and blog it in half an hour, and I'll probably get faster. Over the period I have played around a lot with the icons, Googles standard markers don't do anything for me.
I had no clue whatsoever when I started doing it.
Its just a hobby.

Lets see how it goes, heres yesterdays KMZ for NZ Quakes 16th May 2010 UTC

heres one of all the 5+ quakes in NZ in 1931 I did in an older style NZ 1931 5+ quakes

KMZ or KML files I post will open GE, so if you haven't got GE it won't work

I feel sort of lost on some of the lingo used in this thread, but instead of staying lost.. I read a little here and there when I can.

I apologize for any post that I've made in the thread that don't really fit in.. but I'm thankful for the ones that do know more, because they are the ones that have sparked my interest further.

Anyway, for anyone that is just as lost as I was/am.. I started with the following page in my quest to learn more about what we are talking about here.. now I have a nice little collection of bookmarks and pdfs to sift through.

Anyway, this is where I started: earthsci.org...

let it take you wherever it takes you..

Time of Earthquake in other Time Zones
Location
44.917°N, 74.413°W
Depth
5 km (3.1 miles) (poorly constrained)
Region
NEW YORK

I only post this small quake because it struck me as a little out of place and odd. Given I haven't been quake watching very long, I remember watching a video about the fault lines in New York at some point, though I can't find it now.

Anyone?

Very Cool. Thanks for those graphs! The one of Mount Hood is telling. Possibly. I know up and down trends is normal, but still......

I at first thought the New York quakes to be odd and out of place as well being I was born and raised here. So upon investigation, this is what I have found - MacGregegor Fault and Volcano . :-) Now who would have thought that in New York :-)

Edit - that was strange -
