Here you go folks, you might find this of interest.

Earthquake Depths

And I just found this:

Rapid Earthquake Viewer

Select an earthquake from the list and you get the seismos for it. Neat.

[edit to say]Just been playing with it. You get Vertical, N/S and E/W seismos and you can save the siesmos as a PDF file direct from the site. Even neater!!

[Further edit to say] It is historic data, i.e. is not right up to the minute but it is still a great resource. Try station view (The three views are top right.)

This has 4 different views - World, US, North Pole, South Pole.

Click on a station, and click show earthquakes and it will outline any quakes on the plot. Example:

Bye, off to play!!!!!!

Just came back in to say that I got to that tool from this page (which is contained in it somewhere) and may be of interest as well.

Lesson plan: Using earthquake depths as evidence for a subduction zone

[Edit to say] I am back again - this page has some interesting stats for example:

About 90% of all earthquakes have depths < 100 km.

Most earthquakes (about 95%) occur in seismic belts along the margins of tectonic plates

And if you click you get to this page and I find these notes often have some very useful stuff in them. Click on 'Lecture Notes' to get at the good stuff!!

Oh, I like, I like very much - thanks for that 'find' (REV) Puterman - I can't wait to waste another day each week playing with another toy I love but don't fully understand

Apparently a 6.4 earthquake just hit Iceland at a 1.3 km depth.

Maybe it'll finally wake up Katla for some doom.

I was just about to look. You need to go to this thread

posted on Jul, 24 2010 @ 07:55 AM
I'm not sure how relevant this is but has anyone noticed the actual closeness of the co-ordinates North and East for these Mindao (? sp) quakes ? they seem just a couple of degrees apart , the last three anyway almost occurring at the exact same spot.

If some form of subduction is occurring which two plates would be involved please anyone ?

Thanks Puterman, excellent thread you guys have there on the Icelandic volcano situation, one i wasnt aware of but will bookmark for my daily viewing

Still find it a little perplexing how such large errors are made with quake detection and how the data simply vanishes without so much as an explanation from the site displaying it. Oh well guess it never happened lol

posted on Jul, 24 2010 @ 08:13 AM

Holy smokes! Theres currently 841 earthquakes on the usgs.earthquake website (for within the last 7 days worldwide), I've never seen so many at the one time on that site. Usually theres around 300 or so on that particular page, ie. worldwide earthquakes within last 7 days. The blue squares are mainly over magnitude 5.

I have no in-depth knowledge of how earthquakes operate really, except basically the tectonic plates of the earth's crust sometimes brush up against each other causing pressure to build until one relents and moves aside, so to speak (real basic knowledge) and then the resulting movement releases the built-up pressure and the earth moves. As I say I have no real knowledge about these things but man that's a lot of earth movements going on at present. Link above to the website page.

I think it was removed because it was a test of the Icelandic Nuclear Weapons Program Oops not supposed to tell you about that one. It was carried out by Julian Assange as part of the Wikileaks program.

Just been back to look at the Icelandic Volcanoes thread again and I notice that spacedman13's post shows a 4.0 at 09:00 which has also been removed. Do they have an instrument problem I wonder??

Forgot to say:

I "think" part of the reason for so many quakes being shown is for the same reason the numbers were swelled after Baja quake - USGS shows quakes in the U.S./AK quakes that are 2.5+ as opposed to only listing larger quakes for the "rest of the world" and the recent Fox Islands activity has boosted numbers.

I'd better drag myself away from the computer before any more events occur - have to succumb to a social life tomorrow *sigh* and it's already 1.30am.. happy watching overnighters....

Sorry this is mega huge but it needed to be preserved for posterior posterity! (It will change every half hour so this captures it as it is now) Would those new to this thread please note this is NOT serious!

Major panic

OMG The world is falling apart.

MEGA MEGA Earthquakes EVERYWHERE in the world

I just posted this in my Toba thread, but it perhaps has even more relevance here. It is an article that argues against the accepted model of subduction explaining the seismic activity around Indonesia.

Thrust faults are seen in the lower slope affecting Units III to VII, and are usually attributed to plate subduction. However, since there are no compressional tectonic features in the underlying units, Choi thinks that they are better interpreted as the result of sediment overloading in the middle to upper slope. He argues that the block-faulted units (I and II), which indicate a predominantly tensional stress regime, and the well-layered, little-disturbed Unit III, are unequivocal evidence against plate subduction.
