A M5.7 just popped up for me, in the Northern Sumatra though. Could this event be the beginning of something even bigger?

You beat me to it=)

Does anyone know what the seismicity in YS looks like now? That is one of my biggest fears, that something is going to affect one of our supervolcanos. But perhaps that is impossible?

You can go HERE to get thumbnails of the seismos.

So far, you can see the quakes showing up...but nothing local in the park yet. Hopefully it will stay that way.

At the moment, I would be more concerned with Long Valley as that has been a shaking!

Okay guys, I am cut/pasting a post from my thread on the philippines quake because I would like all your opinions, and I know some of you post mainly here.

*****

Okay, so those friends of mine that like to brainstorm:

Take a look at this list:


MAP 4.7 2010/07/23 01:57:10 -17.814 -178.663 592.6 FIJI REGION
MAP 5.3 2010/07/17 16:20:02 -15.551 -175.084 10.2 TONGA
MAP 4.8 2010/07/17 04:34:00 -20.610 -178.897 608.4 FIJI REGION


Do you notice a similarity?

Check out the recent quake map of the world: HERE

You could pretty much draw a straight line from the FIJI quakes to the Philippine quakes. They are almost the exact depth.


Coincidence? I don't think so!!!!!

You are correct, that is a much bigger cause for concern judging by recent seismicity. Lets just hope that these quakes were all for now, and that no major event follows this

Sometimes you can see things that you want to see, that string along the Fiji/New Hebrides/PNG/Phillipines just about always has something on it.

Having said that though, I did notice that there is a persistant line like you say when you look at Mag7+'s this year.
Check this out (if you haven't already)
2010 Major Quakes
I haven't put in todays Philippines quakes yet in case they are exagerated, just add 2 more to the left of the line of balls

Thanks for that, Muzzy, illustrated a thought I'd had in my mind...

.. are you able to plot by depth, too, showing only where the deep quakes have occurred over last year or so?

You mean for Moro Gulf or the Whole World?
The easiest way to do that is to use EMSC's search which you can download for Google Earth.
Heres the results of a search I did for Mag 4 and 500km plus deep quakes Worldwide from 2004 to 2010 (today).
I altered the icons on GE to mine which show up OK on GE but don't seem to transfer to Google Maps so well (they revert to GMaps old icons) , could be because there are so many of them


Anyway heres the Google Earth File

Heres the Google Maps Map

Just about all of these deep quakes are at Back Arc Trenches.

Theres a few odd balls like behind the Andes and nestled in above North Korea

Interesting

Wow...thanks for the visual aids, those are great! I understand what you mean about seeing what you want, you are most likely right....BUT (gotta throw that in there) tell me you don't see a trend with that map?

We might say that the MORO GULF quakes aren't supposed to happen. Yet deep quakes do account for more than 20 percent of all earthquakes. But why worry, the deeper the earthquake, the more powerful it is, but it’s also far less likely to reach the surface.

So, why do I say that quakes like this aren't supposed to happen? Simply because the Earth gets hotter by about 1 degree C with each 100 meters of depth on average. Combine that with high pressure underground and it's clear that by about 50 kilometers down, on average the rocks should be too hot and squeezed too tight to crack and grind the way they do at the surface.

Just an observation, but it seems as if the Fox Islands have quietened down quite abruptly at the start of the activity in the Indonesia/Philippines region, and still hasn't resumed on the 2.5+ lists... *thinking out loud*

If the epicenter was 600 km deep, how strong was this quake at the epicenter?
Magnitude 10? 11?

At a depth of 600 km is the Earth's mantle. The epicenter was therefore in the mantle. WoW!

The crust we stand on is only about 30 km thick. Out in the oceans, it's even thinner, getting down to 5 km in places. Beneath this crust is the mantle of the Earth; a region that extends down a depth of almost 2,900 km. So when we take the thickness of the crust into consideration, then a quake in the mantle is not that "big" deal.
