Yes indeedy, I know all that, but that does not SPECIFICALLY answer the question.

Take this one

M 4.7, Philippine Islands region

Date: Sunday, July 25, 2010 12:28:45 UTC
Sunday, July 25, 2010 08:28:45 PM at epicenter
Depth: 61.40 km (38.15 mi)


It is right at the bottom of a 6+km trench Is that 61.4 from the surface of the bottom? Bear in mind that the distance across the bottom of the trench there is approximately 15km if that.

Hummmm - good point! That would be difficult to figure I would say - I await your response from the USGS

Seems like this one was an erratic reading. I looked at USGS just recently and only the M5.0 was there, this one had been removed...

OK, I had an email reply from USGS just now and since I am just a little surprised I will post it in full to see what you make of it.


The depth where the earthquake begins to rupture. This depth may be relative to mean sea-level or the average elevation of the seismic stations which provided arrival-time data for the earthquake location. The choice of reference depth is dependent on the method used to locate the earthquake. Sometimes when depth is poorly constrained by available seismic data, the location program will set the depth at a fixed value. For example, 33 km is often used as a default depth for earthquakes determined to be shallow, but whose depth is not satisfactorily determined by the data, whereas default depths of 5 or 10 km are often used in mid-continental areas and on mid-ocean ridges since earthquakes in these areas are usually shallower than 33 km.


I read this to say that undersea quake depths are taken form mean sea level.

At 9:12 AM Pacific Daylight Time on July 28, an earthquake with preliminary magnitude 5.2 occurred 130 miles/209 Km west of Eugene, Oregon .

The magnitude is such that a tsunami WILL NOT be generated. This will be the only WCATWC message issued for this event.

We also had this earlier today

I found the location interesting. If I recall correctly this is on the other side of the plate then the ones you have listed for Oregon and of course are more north then the North CA ones.

So with the 5+ off Oregon, are we seeing the start of the reaction to the Moro Gulf subduction series of quakes across the other side of the oceanic plate on West Coast of Alaska/US?


The Fox Islands region is cranking out 4+'s again...

(*whispers* What's EDD?)

Maybe someone on this thread can help.

When the recent 7.0 and above Philippine quakes happened, within an hour or 3 I was looking at a list of quakes on a standard quake website. I do not think it was USGS.

I don't know what it was.

I counted 9 quakes listed 7.0 and above. I think at least 5-7 of those quakes were listed next to each other.

And, then there was the South China sea quake beyond those Philippine quakes.

Since then I have found no evidence of such a number of 7.0 and above quakes. The most I can find listed are 3.

I know what I saw. I noted it to my housemate who was too busy to call it up on her computer.

I have searched a fair number of quake sites and not found anything close to what I saw.

It's extremely frustrating.

1. I was shocked to see so many 7.0 and above quakes in such a short time and in the same place, essentially.

2. Then I was shocked the next day to see that the info had disappeared and others thought I was looney for claiming such an out of the norm listing.

DID ANYONE ELSE SEE SUCH A THING ON ANY SITE?

WHAT MIGHT HAVE HAPPENED???

Were those mostlyl preliminary listings quickly corrected???

I was at the grocery store today and when I came out to load up the bike there was an old man sitting near to where I was. I said to him, "nice day huh?" and he replied, "I don't know, something isn't right...something in the air, I can feel it and have been feeling it for a while now. I think something big is about to happen."

Well, this spooked me and I said to him if he felt it would be a big earthquake. He said this is what he feels and he went on to say he had talked to other people who felt the same. I told him to stay safe and I went on my way.

very strange. I can't stop thinking about it.

(whispers back... EDD=unemployment, I been without for 8 weeks now.)

Hey there! I've been out in the sun all day, beautiful here. If I felt that, I didn't realize it.
Funny, the one we had a couple of months back was smaller and I felt it, but not this one. I know it all depends on where it falls and how deep, etc. My dogs were fine also. I am thinking more and more that the different fault lines 'sound' different and have varying affects on both people and animals.

If you look at the MAP you can clearly see how the activity continues to creep up the coast line...and Alaska is once again rockin good.

I do think that there is a possibility of a connection between this and the philippines quakes. But I don't think it would be enough to counter all that energy. We'll see...no aftershocks still, so hopefully something bigger isn't building.

EDIT TO ADD: Just as an after-thought, I remembered something quite strange that happened yesterday afternoon. I was out in my backyard when I heard an odd sound: A large flock of canadian Geese. They flew right over my house, heading North. My husband and I both commented on how weird it was that they were still around. Usually they are long gone by now.

Thats what it sounds like, well you learn something every day eh.

Thanks for doing that.


BUT


"average elevation of the seismic stations which provided arrival-time data for the earthquake location"
hmmmm now thats interesting, OK sure there aren't many station 10 km up a mountain, but a LOT of them are 1km up. Something to keep in mind I guess.

I have a list (on Excel) of all siesmic stations that gives the Lat and Long and ELEVATION, now I know why they had that detail in the data.
