Hi earthquakers, I have a question about the amount of earthquakes on the USGS map.

The map shows earthquake activity in the past week, right up to the last hour, and Iv`e been looking at it everyday pretty much since the Haiti earthquake, and it appears that there is usually around 260-290 (ish) quakes at any one time on the map.

Now, Iv`e noticed this number dropping to 169 (today at 17:11 UTC).
I started noticing this drop a few days ago, and it has steadily decreased.

My question is, is this a known phenomenon, i,e after a couple of biggies and their respective aftershocks, do the number of quakes fall once everything has calmed, or could this possibly be a "calm before the storm" type of thing, like, could the fall in numbers indicate a possible big quake coming soon?

Forgive my tectonic ignorance if this is a silly question, it`s just a question that came to me as I noticed the quakes depleting in number recently.


Thanks in advance,

Namaste

A DESTRUCTIVE WIDESPREAD TSUNAMI THREAT DOES NOT EXIST BASED ON
HISTORICAL EARTHQUAKE AND TSUNAMI DATA.

HOWEVER - THERE IS A VERY SMALL POSSIBILITY OF A LOCAL TSUNAMI
THAT COULD AFFECT COASTS LOCATED USUALLY NO MORE THAN A HUNDRED
KILOMETERS FROM THE EARTHQUAKE EPICENTER. AUTHORITIES IN THE
REGION NEAR THE EPICENTER SHOULD BE MADE AWARE OF THIS
POSSIBILITY

This seems to be a 6.6 in USGS data. Take a look in Google Earth. There is now a ring of earthquakes all the way around that plate all over 4.8

Seems to extend into China as well.

No worries, they will calm down and behave eventually one hopes, and thank you, it was red for me too, but I noticed it changed to blue rather quick, so not your fault, they just didn't see it change so quick is all, and sorry i didn't get back to you right away, had to step away for a bit, happy earthquake hunting...

heck all this time, we've been wondering whether Cali would slide in to the ocean, wouldn't it be just our luck it would be China instead, not serious, but hey, then where would get "Volvo's"???

Great Spot
- Maybe I missed the Red, I don't think so though - some people make me want to chew nails!!!


Red? Blue? What are you guys on about?

By the way has anyone found any readable seismographs for Italy yet. I am getting really curious about that one. Sorry that should be machine readable, i.e. data downloadable.

My most sincere apologies. I completely missed that last part of page 52 - the penalty of using pglastpage as a bookmark. Many thanks for that. I have downloaded and will be reading tomorrow.


My thanks also to SWMBO for pointing out my error of omission.

Yes, you did teach me something - I never look at that page. Perhaps I should. I use the RSS feed from USGS and eQuake normally.
