I don't understand
(hey its 7am here
)

When you say "rolling total" what does that mean? cumulative?

Like the 7.0 to 7.9 line goes, 15, 14, 14, 13, 15, 16, 18, 21 and the graph shows a dip in April which follows the numbers, OK so what does that mean?

BTW you must still be showing that false Atlantic Ocean 8.0 quake

Is there a way that you can put a space in at the top that has i.e.
Latest Update 7/30/2010 to include year/month or what have you?

Yes for the preceding 12 months i.e. the 12 months ending, so...

Jan 01 2009 to Dec 31 2009
Feb 01 2009 to Jan 31 2010
Mar 01 2009 to Feb 28 2010
etc
etc

There were fewer 7.0 - 7.9 quakes for the 12 months ending April 2010


BTW you must still be showing that false Atlantic Ocean 8.0 quake


Date/Time UTC Latitude Longitude Magnitude Depth(Km) Location
27/02/2010 06:34 -35.9089 -72.7327 8.8 35 offshore Maule. Chile
29/09/2009 17:48 -15.5095 -172.0341 8 18 Samoa Islands region

Those are the two 8+ quakes

Don't forget this is a rolling total.

Removed as already posted.

Link is still good though. 100 people injured.

Fair enough. Which page is it on, I still can't see it.

(Note to self: Must use the search facility to find things)

Never mind. I found it

I am positive it just appeared!!

Yeah good idea
, what I could do is rewrite that first Project Progress post into a new dated post each time I update a year, that should show up as a "new post" each time.
Up till now I have just edited the same post (with the original date)

OK, these are the figures based on Energy Released. They are not any specific unit but are based on the difference between the amount of energy released by comparison to a 1.0 Mag quake using the formula 10^(1.5*([mag]-1))

The result of that is then rounded and divided by 1,000,000 to get figures that are not going to send the graphs bonkers.




The interesting thing is that it has changed using energy release. Still an increase but here is the other on so you have the comparison. (Remember this one is based on numbers)



These charts show the average event energy by mag by year, in other words the energy value divided by the number of quakes in each band/year



Finally, this puts the energy released and the average value per quake together.

Baja Energy Release



There have been 14,282 earthquakes to date at Baja California since the 7.2 in April. That is a huge number of quakes so you would imagine that the amount of energy released would be huge. Think again!

The picture below shows the total amount of energy released in imaginary Energy units, let's call them EnerUnits. So the total is on the first line and is the 65 EnerUnits. The second line is the single 7.2 and is 63.1 EnerUnits.

All 14,282 quakes only add up to 1.9 EnerUnits.



Such is the power of big magnitude quakes

Edit:

I also took a look at Chile. Creating exactly the sames EnerUnits for Chile:

Total of all quakes since the 8.8 is 15,957 EnerUnits
Energy Value of the 8.8 is 15.849 EnerUnits

A difference of just 108 EnerUnits - The total energy value since the 8.8 is equivalent to an 8.80196 Mag earthquake.

Just in case you are interested in the raw figures you can download the PDF here. This file shows the energy release values before dividing by 1,000,000,000 to get the EnerUnits. It gives you a good feel for the difference in energy for different magnitudes.

Heck yeah


You can see from the figures End Jan10 after the Chile quake how things pan out.
Correct me if I got it wrong but, the Samoa 8.0 was 31623 Energy units so that leaves 501,187 units for the Chile 8.8 , which on its own released 309% more energy than all the other quakes >8 combined


Kind of puts things in perspective eh, even the 7's seem insignificant when compared.

I wonder how much energy there would have been in those 3 x 7's at Moro Gulf?

I often wonder about the swarms we get too, whether if you combine them all they would add up to a single 5, 6 or 7 maybe?

I like the line of thinking, reminds me of a graphic I seen on the Internet showing the same, from memory it was like comparing a 9 mag quake as a football stadium and a 2mag was a matchbox, a 3mag a pack of cigs, a 4mag a carton, a 5mag a box , a 6mag a pallet, a 7mag a shipping container and an 8 a truck ........ or something along those lines

* signs off and heads to store to get cigs

Ya, the two values are BIGGER = 10 ^ (Larger Value - Smaller Value)
and STRONGER = 10 ^ (1.5 * (Larger Value - Smaller Value))

To do the comparisons above I used 1 for the smaller value, but on Baja and Chile I used 0. It does not really matter as they are ethereal units but they do give a good idea of the immense power of these larger quakes.

Just calculated on 'bigger' for Chile. The 8.8 was 5.95 times bigger than the rest of the quakes in the area since.

Moro Gulf

7.4 + 7.6 + 7.3 = a single 7.78 in terms of energy released.

I don't think I am going to go there!

Can you imagine how many smaller sections! I might try it for Moro.

Moro Gulf 7+ Energy Release



Chile Energy Release Pie Chart



OK so I went there

The next one is the ratio of each quake at Chile to Mag 0, i.e how much bigger each quake was than zero.

Chile Bigger Than 0

And just for good measure here is the Baja 14,000+ quakes as a Bigger than 0 Magnitude pie chart.



Just for fun this gif shows the proportional difference between energy release and bigger than 0 for values 9.5 Mag down to 1.0 Mag

I am glad this subject has risen again. We discussed this in Yellowstone - TOTAL ENGERY RELEASE per event - got to love it!!

VERY IMPERSSIVE CHARTS AND GRAPHS.

VERY INFORMATIVE.

THANKS TONS.

Is there a way you could have a ping list on this thread . . . where say quake above 6.5 would trigger pinging us somehow even by U2U automatically?

Sure wish there was. Sigh.
