Hey Muzzy, thanks for the link

I'll be sure to check that in the future

No problem, I just figured out how to use their search page myself

Then I guess you have also figured out by clicking on the MB, MS and ML boxes that they use ML.

It is annoying that they don't appear to have a suitable download for automated collection.

what boxes?

I just figured out why you cannot see the boxes. It is because you are not looking at the same page as me, and you don't have all the Export buttons either. The one I am using defaults to Australian quakes although you can extend it if you wish, whereas the one you are using is worldwide, or at least Oceania.

Go to GeoScience Recent Earthquakes

Click the customise button.

The next screen you will see is this:

Tick the boxes like crazy - use select all if you must. An example:

Click 'Submit' at the bottom and............

Note that IF you use the export csv option you get the timings in 1/1000th of a second which you can view in Excel by setting the time column to "hh:mm:ss.000"

I am working on an alternative to the useful earthquake listings that you can get to from my signature.

This is very much work in progress at present but if you would like to take a peek you can view the page here

The links down the side are also work in progress but should eventually allow navigation to blocks of links.

I would like to know of any pertinent long running threads on earthquakes and/or volcanoes so I can add them to the list. (Something on the PNW would be good - westcoast(?))

And look at this lovely grahic of it from the Friendswood private heli, Texas.

And this one Spring - also a private heli in Texas.

I captured the pages otherwise they will change.

Thanks for taking the time to explain that

I've replaced that page I had with your one now.

Hey that great, theres one I see already I didn't have , Ecuador quakes.

Now all it needs is someone to monitor the entire set and complie a Global Daily Earthquake Map and List of EVERY quake on Earth each day

Too much for me to tackle, I have enough on my hands just doing New Zealand, 127 in the last 3 days, its getting the location placenames that takes the most time.
I had a go at doing NORSAR for a day, a year or so ago when I first found the site, there were about 200 on that one

I'm really looking forward to your new QVS Data Program, it may make a Daily Global Earthquake Snapshot possible.

There are a few drawbacks of course, a lot of the data providers are a day behind putting the lists up.
Having said that I notice that the National Observatory of Athens have got quicker over the last couple of years.

What do you think my program is for?

I will get there eventually!

So here in the Pacific Northwest some crazy things have been going on... Suddenly grocery stores are starting to sell self-made earthquake survival kits (and when I mean self-made, I mean someone took baggies around the store and put non-perishable items in them serving as 1 meal each), the news sites are putting up an abundance of links regarding what to do in an earthquake and/or tsunami, and now my kids' schools are starting to prepare the kids for them too (the last two are being done more excessively than usual). I'm starting to wonder if there is something that is known to the government or some entity that the rest of us are being kept in the dark about? It's getting pretty bizarre... Just curious if anyone else up this way has noticed this too, or am I just being paranoid. I do want to mention that I'm not usually too concerned about earthquakes, other than having some water and food on hand if something were to happen...

I wasn't sure which Thread to put my thinking down in with everything that is going on - so, I put it Here.

You guys keep up with this. Is it true that all the seisgraphic moniters are going off at the same tie around the world. On YouTube there is another report that many of the world's volcano's are also going off at the same time.
Is this true? Can..would you verify this for us please?

I hope this link works. I am still new to this and don't get much practice either.

There is also a man that uploaded to YouTube who Posted about this and that the volcanos all over world were going off, but he used a roman numeral for one of the letters to it and I don't have such. But maybe you can google it and find it. This is as much as I could get: then what looks like a roman numerial for 1 and then Yk after it.

please let us know if you find it's true or not. Thanks.

When you say "suddently" the stores are selling earthquake survival kits - do you mean like yesterday, today? I lived in the Pacific northwest for years and nothing went on at the schools or otherwise - this has me worried.

Thank you Puterman, Muzzy and everyone for your great graphs and info!

Sure it's true. Anytime there is an earthquake over 6.4 or so, the whole world shakes, and it is detected by seismic stations all over the earth- except for in the shadow zone.... It's normal for this happen, and nothing out of the ordinary. Volcanoes erupt and then go dormant for years. Normal....Welcome to hell...Any other questions?

Well the seismos are just fine now, but of course they were all going off when the 7.7mag (USGS) 7.5 Mag (Badan) quake went off. Look pretty quiet now bar a neat little bump in Argentina and Texas which seems to have gone bonkers. I am suspecting that is a sensitive short wave instrument and it looks from this one at Spring that they have been having a wee bit of windy weather down there.

I don't think there are any more volcanoes going off than normally do but they sure as hell are a lot more people going off!

Certainly you have a wealth of clearly layed out information on your site.

Most impressive.

I am too tired to try and find out . . . by searching there . . .

Is there still a plan or desire, even, to have a listing say of the last 7-14 days or so of all the quakes above a 3.0 or 5.0 with the magnitude easily and quickly seen?

My order of preference for the data would be:

magnitude first; location 2nd; depth 3rd

Anyway--Thanks for all your efforts. Much appreciated.

BTW, for most of us laymen . . . the seismographic squiggles don't indicate much to us nor do the different wave forms mentioned.

It would be great if you had a tutorial handy and clickable with some typical wafe form squiggles and intensities charted/graphed with explanations as well as implications.

Anyway--that's my fantasy about such.

Well much as I would be happy to do it, GeoNet in New Zealand have already done an excellent job of that so......

Happy reading about the squiggles

- That's just what Puterman said to me several months ago - That's just proof that you can do anything very well if you put your mind to it

So accordingly, we'll learn you in earthquakes yet.

1) Start Here

BTW - Puterman knew quakes by sound only first - best way really!
