I'd say that Kelburn 'feel" for the Arthurs Pass quake is a mixup with the earlier one at Crail Bay. Too far away for feeling a 3.8


Good to see the Alpine Fault bumping again

Edit: So why nothing on BORG? BORG.II.00.LNZ.2010.242

(Further edit to say I will forgive them as it does show on the BHZ channel: BORG.II.10.BHZ.2010.242 )

And even further edit to say I found a cracking channel BH2
BORG.II.00.BH2.2010.242

This despite the fact that it is the first station on the phase data:

You can see it on the KIEV webicorder. It is the splodge at the bottom. (The technical term 'splodge' refers to a seismo trace that is not clear when viewed at a small size. This can also be refered to as a 'blotch'.

But that's not the main reason I'm posting here. I was wondering if one of you guys could explain this?? I'm guessing this is from malfunctioning equipment??

The first recorder looks like telemetry problems.

The second recorder looks OK (assuming you got the right one).

Nothing to worry about anyway.

Awww, ya beat me, and I wasn't sure if I should go with a 3.2 mag or not, but something really strange, do a google maps on that quake, and check out where the epicenter was, directly underneath the Airport in Concord, CA. almost on the runway.... wild!

Thats a big blast alright, roughly about 1/3 of a ton of TNT according to this

I've seen this a few times before. I think have seen it at the goldmine down Otago way, usually they are Mag 1 or so. Hatuma in the lower Hawkes Bay is a spot to watch out for too, theres a Limestone Quarry there.

There was a quake near Wellington a few years ago, 1.5 along the motorway to the Hutt Valley, I thought it was the Wellington Fault going off, but the epicentre was right in the Horokiwi Quarry when I checked it on Google Earth.

Be aware - thinking in progress

hummmm thought (please forgive me - my mind gets going sometimes) - You all have been doing a study of the quakes (Puterman/Muzzy) in doing the charts I have notice - thanks to the both of you - the downtime for quakes (as has been for the past week) is September. - Now - thinking in progress (be scared) - This past week has been a very active week with Tropical Systems. As a matter of fact, September is one of the busiest seasons for Tropical Systems. - So - as I have been watching/following avidly all the cyclones in the Ocean's - I have not had the distraction of quakes as do I dare to say - has been relatively quiet - . Connection somehow?

Not sure about it being quieter than normal on the quake front. True we have not had 6/7 but I think (without checking) the 5+ are in the normal range. I would need to do an analysis to be sure.

Anyway, what I came on to say is that I found an undocumented feature in the IRIS BUD meta-data files.

If you select a network in quack query explorer and then select a file set, if meta-data is available you can click it and get a new page with the station/channel information. This is an example of such a page.

You need to click a file first if one is not highlighted



At the top of the screen right next to the lat/lon information there is a hidden link (circled here)



Actually it is 8 spaces from the end of the Lat/Lon information
Move your mouse until the cursor changes to the 'hand'. Click and it takes you to a Google Maps location of the station.

Just from general observation over the last week it does appear at first glance that activity in more Northern Californian areas has increased...

Re Sinabung. Would you like links with that? Yes please and can I go super size?

At first glance it may appear that quakes are down in number towards the end of August and Tropical storms are up , but its not the case at all.
You can't just take the Atlantic Ocean in isolation and say " Hurricanes only happen in September" when there are "hurricanes" or Tropical Cyclones/Typhoons all year round in various other parts of the World, like the China Sea, Australia and South Pacific and Indian Ocean at other times of the year, just like there are earthquakes everywhere at any given time.

I had a quick look through the charts at Global 7+ Quakes and September doesn't really stand out at all until you get back to the pre 1970's, when data was sparce anyway.

I haven't ever really followed the Atlantic Ocean Hurricanes apart from seeing them on TV, but have spent some time reading up on our own area, this page has a list of TC's back to 1945 for those that are interested.
There must be something similar for the Atlantic available too?

Not saying your off-track with the idea, but you'd need a lot of data (and time) to make comparisons between the TC's and Earthquakes.

Hope you are safe and sound up there
