However it is a solo event further North of the main zone and that fact should perhaps make us sit up and take note.

Although this was a Mercalli scale 7 it occurred in the desert so is unlikely to have caused much if any damage. You would need to look at the shake maps to see what the effect was in the closest inhabited areas, but it would seem that it was not strong.

My own concern is that this is not the start of a more Northerly pattern.

My eyes are very heavy - I have been reading on the Chili 8.8 quake. I have come to the conclusion and please forgive me for not highlighting and posting quotes from Those that be - that They have no further clue than we do! Most instruments failed at the time of the quake - things were set off balance and re shifted- hey, wasn't that brought up here? Anyway, that is what I have gotten from it so far and it is late - Please anyone correct me if I am wrong or missed something! And, I still think frozen yogurt is better - do they make black cherry frozen yogurt - that sounds really good about now! - and where's the Home Made Plum Wine - that would be really good too!

If you were reading on the pages I posted they measure movement with GPS and a European version of it. sudden acceleration is not what those instruments are good for. They compare different satellite signals and compute the location out of that.
If they are moved too fare from last position until after the compute they lose the signal, and have to refind it.
That is why in rough seas on the ocean a gps has its difficulties to give an accurate position.
So they learned they might need faster GPS recievers, or a better coverage for the european version...
Or they add an accelerometer for 3-D short time violent shocks. Where we are at seismic movements again.
The nice thing about GPS Data is that it is 3 dimensional. Maybe a feature missing in seismic data.

OK, the next release of Quake Data is ready. Version 3.5.0 Build 39

When you have downloaded and installed the new program, then IF you trust me, download and unzip this file and double-click it. It will create a registry entry for the Iceland cams at Vodaphone. All you need to do is to tell it where to store the files it downloads once you are in the program and then re-save it ('Save Settings') to save the change.

Once you have installed the new program, then under the menu item Webs go to Volcanism Sites > Web Cams > Webcam Snagger

This is designed to take timed snaps of static cams so is good for Iceland, Old Faithful, Popacatapetl etc.


  • You can set the lapse time for anything from 2 seconds to 2 hours (all in seconds)
  • You can snap a picture at anytime, even if the timer is running.
  • You can save and load settings


Last night when all the world and his dog were logged on to the Iceland cameras we could not get a picture here on the 'normal' web site, but this dives straight into the server and gets the file. It is still subject to some delays, but it worked last night when we could get nothing on the web.

If you get an error (which may happen if it times out or goes over an hour boundary while waiting for a response) just click the snap now button and see it it corrects.

The other thing that is new and included, and really is still under development, is the display of webicorders as a slide show. As I have rushed this out for the cam snagger the plot section is not quite finished, but one of the menus does work which allows you to see a series of plots you have saved as a slide show. This makes it easier to see where things match.

What I am working on is a side by side version of this, and one which goes off an gets the plots before displaying them, i.e. you don't have to save them first.

If there is a problem please let me know as this was a bit of a rush job..The help has not been updated yet.

Coming soon - Did UFOs visit the Iceland area last night? I am getting the pics prepared soon.

Spotted but considered not worthy of mention. After all they did get a bit shaken!!


And, I still think frozen yogurt is better - do they make black cherry frozen yogurt


Yum! Well at least you read the post!!

Is it missing? I don't think so. The Z channels measure vertical movement and the E and N channels do East/West and North/South. It provides not only quake depth but vertical moment as well. You can get a pretty 3D view of quakes.

Has anyone other that me noticed that the last quake above 5.0 World wide was approximately 24 hours ago? - I really, really, really want one of you to jump right in here and tell me that this happens and is common/normal and/or that I am missing data!!!!

This is absolutely normal and happens all the time! There you go , feel better now?

So now let's take a look. Mm, well if there are around 1400 5.0 quakes in a year then the law of averages says you should get about 3.8 per day so 3 or 4 a day. Now also by Murphy's Law as applied to buses, police officers etc, you never get one want you want it and then 6 come along all at once. Of course you can get bunching. You won't get three or 4 evenly spread in a day.

I did look at this myself and think, "Nice and quiet. What's going to blow next then!"

As an example however it did happen on March 29th last year.

Ok as you see I'm still learning, especially about seismic stuff.

I came here on a 2012 hiphe and the more I read, the less likely is it anything realy bad will happen on that day. But never the less there is a lot of interessting stuff going on.

I see we all jumped on that New Mexico quake... must say, when you see it on the map it looks v. ominous... definitely a move north!!

It's not exactly an active area - but has had a few historical quakes

New Mexico

* 1906 07 12 - Socorro area, New Mexico - Intensity VII
* 1906 11 15 - Socorro area, New Mexico - Intensity VII
* 1966 01 23 - Dulce, New Mexico - M 5.1
* 2005 08 10 - New Mexico - M 5.0
* 2005 12 19 - New Mexico - M 4.1

Puterman - came across this free book (download) and thought of you:

"Fault-Zone Properties and Earthquake Rupture Dynamics, Volume 94 (International Geophysics)" (2009)

I think they do missle testing near there - I'm on the dreaded dial up and it will take me forever - how far away from White Sands, NM is this quake -

The quake was between Artesia and Carlsbad - farther to the east than White Sands by a couple of hundred km.

It's on the Texas/New Mexico border. The quake is about the magnitude of a low grade nuclear bomb.

Okay, thank you - so, yeah, I'm just going to think that this is just out of place quake - yes, - that sounds good!
