I only have 3 in the last 2 years!

Mind they are getting stronger each time. Next one should be 4.5

The map gives me a better understanding of the Madrid fault into the Wabash. Getting a little close to home here, actually it was closer to Ft. Wayne than Indianapolis. Locals on Ham radios today talked about feeling it this morning. I must have really been sound asleep - I did notice later a couple of objects in the window sill were not in place and my cat was bugging me early this morning, he doesn't usually do that.

Well, we had a 4.1 aftershock today followed one minute later by a 3.6 - so I guess that's today's big one out of the way... they're still going ahead with the New Year celebrations in the Cathedral Square - although I'm not risking it - wish they had moved it to Hagley Park where there's no risk of another aftershock causing masonry to fall.

That Kermadec one earlier today was showing up as ghosting on the main drums down most of the North Island.

I know the feeling, I can't even get on top of all the New Zealand quakes (updating a few months ago) let alone get the 7's sorted out. Getting that Centenial list threw a spanner int he works, a lot of cross checking to do.
I've started using a new listing style on the maps themselves, each quake has all the types of magnitudes that are available and the source for each. I've only redone the 1950's so far.The lists just show the largest, regardless of the type.

Re your Alaskan quake, I see the EMSC is Mw and the NEIC ( AEIC source) is ML.
No conversion from USGS in this case, or any phase data either

Yeah and offshore Matata, Bay of Plenty has started twitching again too, been approx 8 quakes there in 24 hrs, mostly 2's to 4.1ML, maybe they are connected to some disturbence along that Kerm ridge.
there was a 7.6 up there a few years ago, we felt it way down here in the middle of NZ, it was like a big slow motion wobble.

My file hosting site (Dropbox.com) has been down for 20 hrs so I can't upload my KMZ Google Earth/Maps maps or .txt lists.

I'm going to set up a 4shared account and get back on with it, I'm 3 days behind with NZ.

Hi folks!

I followed this link from this ATS post and immediately thought of you Quake Watch folks.

The article says that there is an increase in seismic activity the last couple of years in the Gulf area, and I figured you folks here might know if it's true. Says it has to do with all the oil platforms and drilling.

I am checking out some of the other claims in this article with a couple people in the oil business. 25,000 miles of pipe, if the author is right. That is an awful lot of holes punched deep into the earth, could we have a man-made fault line?

What do you folks think? Possible?

Many thanks!

Several of you have visited and commented in a thread I started regarding some rumbling noises/vibrations I experienced a couple of days ago. (Washington State) I have since made a map of the US marking where others have reported experiencing something very similar at the same time, or month previous.

Now, if you compare that map to an earthquake hazard map and I think you will all appreciate it:

(Red indicates felt on 12/28, within a weeks previous

Though im living in Germany,im getting a little worried about all those Earthquakes i see on usgs...it has to do with the Eclipse on the Dec 21.,right? Because there was a 4.5 in Poland yesterday,less than 150 km from where i live...just getting a tad bit nervous...

I will check out the seismicity bit for you later but in the meantime I would just say that since the Gulf and the States above the Gulf are all shale beds for the major part there will be faulting, and multiple small cracks as that is the nature of shale.

As an afterthought, I would have that particular site closed down if I could. They do nothing but spout alarmist rubbish the bulk of which is completely unsubstantiated.

About 5:25 in the morning here in Berkeley. I am looking at Venus and the crescent Moon right out the window in front of me. A beautiful sight this last day of 2010.

USGS says nothing over 2.5 since the Nevada 2.6 about 6 hours go. Eerily Quiet.

Happy New Year my Friends!

Herewith the figures for the Gulf Of Mexico



A graph of those



Had to scale to Terajoules to be able to see the counts at all! Just to give you an idea of the scale in energy terms of the middle years here is an elongated version of the energy graph.



Whilst looking at that graph I will leave you to ponder whether the seismicity has increased bearing in mind that 2010 energy is so small it does not even show on the graph!


Edit to say: To be fair you were only talking about the last three years so I decided to do a final graph to make it easier for people to try determine the trend of the quakes and quake energy.




By the way, virtually no quakes are recorded in the GOM itself so the box includes quakes that are pretty much all on land, but all around the Gulf so should be reasonably representative.

The data is all from the ANSS data catalogue except 2010 which is from USGS daily data. I chose to go from Latitude 20 upwards for the simple reason that below 20 degrees of latitude would have included the Cayman trench which would completely smother the figures and render them meaningless.

Thanks for the graphs and maps, very informative! Its not on the map but we have rumblings in Indiana at times - not sure if they are earthquake related but the house has shook pretty good at times.
