Some big shakers down there in that area lately

The world is shaking today isn't it.

3 quakes 5 or greater in the past hour.



3. Magnitude 5.1 - ATACAMA, CHILE

Solar flares? Planetary alignment?

None of the above, its a New Moon

and Lunar Perigee (closest distance to earth) in 3 days as well (Jun 15 14:55 365936 km)

Planetary alignment was sort of on the money then lol.

2nd line.

june 26 approaches and its a special eclipse of the moon. which allows for a particular large earthquake around that time. cant say where and cant remember the authors name, sorry.

And a solar flare due to hit on the 16th. Catastrophe forecast for the 26th - don't believe it - something along the line of political or stock market. 'spose that is to do with the moon/eclipse.

Tell me why is 3 x 5.0 significant when the lack of them over that past days was not? Based on the 'average' of 1319 based on observations since 1990 that makes 3.6 per day where as the last 8 days we have only averaged 3 a day, with the 7th having 1 and the 8th having none! That means we are 'missing' 0.6 x 8 amounts of energy release. Stand up and demand your rights. Give us back our energy release.

On the 5th there were 3 within 2 hours, on the 10th there were 3 within 1 hour.

Statistics eh!

I was only teasing about the New Moon

I did a survey last year for 3 months keeping track of the phases of the Moon and the Perigee/Apogee compared to quakes here in New Zealand, there was absolutely no connection.
There seems to be 50-60 earthquakes every day here despite the Moons position.
It had no effect on the magnitudes or on swarms either.

You would think something that size would effect the earths tectonic plates eh?, and I'm not completely discounting it.

The thing is you can make stastistics fit whatever you are trying to prove.

OK so there were 3 quakes in a hour and its almost New Moon, but like Puterman is alluding to, what about the days when there were more 5+'s and bigger and it wasn't a New Moon or Full Moon?

Ah but now there have been 2 x 5+ inside 12 minutes (real data) so there is absolutely no doubt that boiling my kettle causes 5+ quakes since it was boiled just about those times, in fact they pretty much coincide with 4+ as well but the problem is that the earlier times in the day did not appear to cause a quake. This can of course be explained by global warming since it was sunnier this morning. Note that the larger quakes today all occurred in the Pacific areas (real data), so this proves that during the warmer period over the Atlantic this morning the expansion of the water in the Atlantic due to the heat offset the imbalance caused by the Moon.

And now for something completely stupid - oh wait that was!

(PS, Just going to boil it again so expect a 4+ in the next 15 minutes or so.)

Just looking at the numbers today it seems we have 6 @ 5+ so far on the 12th.

reply to post by berkeleygal

I thought this makes an interesting graph. Bit on the large size but it needs to be as it covers 365 days of Baja quakes as a cumulative.

Note that the daily 'rate' is slowly getting back to normal, but it is taking quite some time. The magnitudes seem to be all pretty much the same range and only very slightly higher than before the 'big one'

Forgot to say - the 'big one' on the magnitude is just at the figure 6 (6000 quakes). Note that there are just over 15,500 quakes of 1.0+ in the area over the 12 month period.


Just a quick note to say that the expected quake of 4+ did not happen within 15 minutes of boiling the kettle so i am off to see if I can fiddle the figures a bit to make the hypothesis work. The science is proven (just needs a few fiddles) Just take a look at the Pogo Stick graph and try denying it.

further to post by muzzy

I wondered if there was any relationship between this quake and the swarm up at Cape Egmont I posted about in the week prior?
reference to post by muzzy

100km apart which is quite a distance, but the faults tend to blend together at this point in the Taranaki Basin.
I did a post on my swarm blog, with a bit of background research too, there have been some bigger quakes (6's) to the east and south in the past, but Cape Egmont doesn't look too high of a earthquake hazard risk area.
Interesting how there are not many events at the volcano itself.
Probably only of interest to NZ or Taranaki readers

Heya, didn't know quite where to post this because there is so many damn katla/eyja dead threads, here you go anyway, pretty intense, any experts here care to comment?

Damn dude, 7.7, and judging from what the mod below said, nasty wave inc.

re. the baja graphs, geez I wonder how the baja gophers are getting any sleep these days?

Not so shallow anymore. It ws 1 km, but now it says 35. Still a tsunami risk
