You have to wonder why they say worldwide 4.5+ if they then don't do that. Their site says that they report 4.5 and under 4.5 if felt.

If this was a 4.5+ then it should have been reported. We really cannot have them getting sloppy like this. I shall have to take it up with them.

A huge bang, then a lot of rocking and rolling from here in NZ.

It was only a 5, but was 20Ks off the coast right next to me, and quite shallow.

Can you go to USGS and fill in a felt report? Need to get these blighters working for their money.

I just sent them this:

The quake referenced here:

www.geonet.org.nz...

Reference Number 3361067/G
Universal Time August 24 2010 at 22:17
NZ Standard Time Wednesday, August 25 2010 at 10:17 am
Latitude, Longitude 40.14°S, 174.87°E
Focal Depth 30 km
Richter magnitude 5.1
Region Whanganui

This should be reported on your site surely?

I know for a fact that you have at least one felt report and I suspect you have had more.

Whilst I a not concerned about 4.0 to 4.99, quakes of 5+ begin to get into the significant range and this should have been reported.

Any idea why it has not been?

Regards


I will let you know if I get a response.

OK, I will report it.

It is great that you are keeping a quake watch.

Is she waking up again?

Upgrades

2.1 up to 2.3 2010/08/25 11:49:08 45.990 -122.104 7.6 24 km ( 15 mi) SSE of Mount St. Helens Volcano, WA

2.1 2010/08/25 05:08:16 46.042 -122.175 6.4 18 km ( 11 mi) S of Mount St. Helens Volcano, WA

and this was a 1.9 I think and is now a 2.3

2.3 2010/08/25 04:07:55 45.993 -122.110 9.3 24 km ( 15 mi) SSE of Mount St. Helens Volcano, WA

Yah, I've been watching that closely.

I mentioned on my other thread, that if you look closely at the location, these are actually located about 15 km south of the volcano. So I'm not too concerned since they aren't actually IN it. It's misleading with the way it's listed!

This reply to you catwhoknows is for all you Kiwis out there. I have now successfully adapted the program to read seismo data from GeoNet. It was a bit of a pain as the interface is a bit cranky and their files are the reverse order of the IRIS files, but here is the plot of the 5.1 on August 24th at 22:17 (UTC)



and here is the sound file.

That is a neat little bang that one.

Hey thats pretty cool, especially given the distance from the epicentre


Have you heard back from USGS yet about why they haven't listed the quake?

I notice that there are 3 listed quakes that day, one Moro Gulf 5.0, one 5.3 near Aru Island and the other near 5.0 Flores Island in Indonesia, that got listed and didn't even have any felt responses.
Where did/do you contact them? is this the page you use? usgs contact

Unfortunately I didn't take a screenshot of the Karori NZSO graph off the Live Siesmic Server at the time, if it showed there surely they should have listed it on the 7days list


Could be political, I expect they will reply that " that area is covered by a local network" or something along those lines, but even that doesn't hold water as the Badan Met Office covers Indonesian earthquakes (although I can't match their 24th Aug with USGS reports)

While I was on the page , usgs not showing this one

Happened in: 26-Aug-10 11:21:32 WIB (Waktu Indonesia Barat (Western Indonesian time zone))
The Location: 6.61 LS - 130.28 BT
The Mag: 5.3 SR (ML)
The Depth: 123 Km
The centre of the earthquake was in: 190 km Barat (west)Laut (sea)SAUMLAKI-MALUKU , 293 km Barat (west)Daya (power) TUAL-MALUKU , 406 km Tenggara (South-east )AMBON-MALUKU , 466 km BaratDaya FAKFAK-IRIANBARAT , 2606 km Tenggara JAKARTA-INDONESIA

www.bmg.go.id...

I found this handy translation page that can be used with the Indonesian quake web site www.toggletext.com...


"gempabumi" in Indoneaisn = earthquake


edit: this page has smaller quakes, and quakes from other areas

and this page lists the felt quakes and the intensity and locations they were felt as.

Yes that's the page. My enquiry got passed on to someone else from there and I am still waiting to hear. The fact is they state that 4.5 and upwards will be listed. Now if it does not appear on one of the LISS plots then perhaps they might have an excuse, but if it does then they need taking to task. The only defence they can use is that a 5.x ML is actually under 4.5 Mw, but I think that is pretty weak and I am sure we could set about disproving it if that is what they say.

Edit: Yes I use the bmg site as well. It really does not need translating. It is fairly understandable as it is.

Karori NZSO graph - what was the date for that one (UTC) please not your strange NZ time!
Was it this one on the 24th?

SNZO.IU.00.BHZ.2010.236
SNZO.IU.20.HNZ.2010.236
SNZO.IU.00.LHZ.2010.236
SNZO.IU.00.VHZ.2010.236



More editing: How about this one in location 10. Quite a good one.
SNZO.IU.10.HHZ.2010.236

and this little cracker
SNZO.IU.10.BHZ.2010.236

Yup I think the quake was there OK. Just depends what mag they thought.

Hear it here

wow thats great PuterMan
I tracked back on the address of one of the links, and tried filling in some of the boxes, but I can't figure how you do it


You wouldn't happen to have Urewera URZ for the 27th and 28th July UTC would you?

I just did an map update and there were 98 quakes on the 27th and 83 on the 28th across New Zealand, that was the days of Part 2 of the Okataina Volcanic Swarm.
Just wanted to see the graph, interesting how timewise events started in Hawkes Bay tracked up to Okataina and out through Matata to the north

27th July
28th July

I keep calling the SNZO the NZSO, (New Zealand Symphony Orchestra)
, suppose you could make a tune with those sound bytes of the earthquakes if you had enough of them

I certainly listed it.

It was horrible. I was in Athens many years ago when buildings fell down and people slept in parks for weeks - scary.

When you have been through a big quake, you certainly pay attention.

It has been done! See Earthquake Quartet #1 for Voice, Trombone, Cello, and Seismograms by Andrew Michael - brought to you by USGS.

It is a project that I have intended to have a play with when the program is completed.

BTW update on that, the USGS text files do not contain magnitude type so I am altering the program to read the xml file which do. Sorry, more delay! The reason for this is because other providers such as GeoNet do have this information.

I seen that Iran one on our Karori NZ graph at the bottom before I looked at the lists, wondered what it was, took an hour to get to New Zealand
and is long and drawn out. aslwww.cr.usgs.gov...
AT LAST all the networks agree on a Magnitude for once

You have to wonder where they get it from?

Same instrument, same location, same channel, no quake: SNZO.IU.00.LHZ.2010.239

By the way, it is just before 3 am here in Ireland. What time is it in your neck of the woods?

Edit: The HHZ one seems good but odd. SNZO.IU.10.HHZ.2010.239

I am away to the pit now so don't let the US use HAARP on Iran any more until I get up!
