They're small but Cali is lit up like a Christmas tree

My mind works in rhythms and patterns. I'd love to see the order of the Alaska/California quakes animated to see if there are any patterns - I can "feel" them but I can't explain them.

Someone said earlier that for the last month they've been quite tense re quakes - me too. I've always felt I'd be around for a global catastrophe - I don't subscribe to 2012 stuff - but I do think we're overdue for something big. Sorry if I sound nuts! Perhaps I am!

Really sorry to read that there were deaths in Turkey. I suppose we should be grateful that it was not a heavily populated area.

USGS only has these in the past 7 days - latest first.

Very deep that one. Depth 446.5 km (277.5 miles). Is this a sign that the area is shifting a bit. They seem well spread out - over 1000 kilometers apart.

Just to give some idea of how active Turkey is, here is a list of quakes since March 7, up to the time of posting this post. These are sourced from EMSC, which in respect of this region I find more detailed than USGS and more reliable than RSOE (who [ie RSOE] get their data from places like EMSC to begin with):

Yes, that is an exceptionally deep quake, and it has to make me wonder if it could lead to some upcoming (pun!) sea-floor volcanics in that region. Only wondering, though, not stating it as a likelihood.

Good Thread Guys,

will be watching this one for a while to come, I live in the ACT so im guessing there is no way one of these could get to me ....

here is a link for the firefox plugin - I use it at work and it is always shaking and by the end of the day i can see usally about 5-10 listings of earth quakes around the world and some are getting closer to home.
So I get to work and my screen just shakes most the time like a bomb has hit it gota love how our techtonic plates just move around and crash into eachother.

I did geography when I was doing my schooling and found it very interesting, did well and enjoyed studying society and enviornments also.

G'day UnRealAl,

thanks for your comments and welcome to ATS. As I'm possibly the only one on this thread right now who actually knows where the ACT is, I can reassure you that it's a pretty quiet area seismically speaking. About the only big shake-ups you're likely to get there will be political ones.
Bigger quakes in Oz are incredibly rare.

The last quake of any appreciable size in Australia was a mag. 5.6 in Newcastle on 28/12/89, which killed 13 people and caused about 4 billion (Aussie) dollars in damage. I remember it well; in S.A. where I used to live it was a state holiday and this event pushed our usual boring "Proclamation Day" items off the news. Terrible tragedy -- came right out of the blue in a region where such quakes have never been known before and even smaller tremors are rather unusual. I don't think even now scientists have determined its precise cause. There are no significant fault lines in the region and it's very unlikely that coal mining was a contributing factor, as the quake occurred too deep for that.

I hope I haven't put the knockers on poor old Oz by saying they almost never get large quakes...

Mike

"Tomographists have found that this planet is divided into six regions: the inner core, the outer core, the lower mantle, the upper mantle, the transition region, and the crust (oceanic and continental).

Here is a brief synopsis of the depths of each layer (in kilometers):

1. 0- 40 Crust
2. 40- 400 Upper mantle
3. 400- 650 Transition region
4. 650-2700 Lower mantle
5. 2700-2890 D'' layer
6. 2890-5150 Outer core
7. 5150-6378 Inner core"

library.thinkquest.org...
How often do quakes at this depth occur?
"The Mariana Trench (or Marianas Trench) is the deepest known part of the world's oceans, and the lowest elevation of the surface of the Earth's crust.
It reaches a maximum depth of about 11,033 metres (36,200 ft)" The Western Pacific plate is being subducted but still, that is very deep for a quake isn't it?

Hi zenius and thanks for posting that info, which will doubtless be very useful for some members who are perhaps not so immersed in Earth Science (so to speak). Regarding your comment about that quake, yes it's a very deep one. The deepest I can recall anywhere have been 700 km and in fact that's the limit for almost any search on a database like NEIC's.

This is why I mused on possibility of volcanic activity, as this quake was so deep.


reply to post by PuterMan
 

Yes, that's "the ACT". To be technically correct it should be written "A.C.T.", but frankly very few Aussies can be bothered doing that and even officially it's no longer written that way, as far as I know.
Of course, we do pronounce it by its individual letters, although non-Aussies might not recognize the sounds.
