Has anybody checked out the latest updates on the world seisemographs
tonight? There are what looks like big and multiple earthquakes happening in a whole lot of places at this very moment.

Are these connected to the Volcanic eruptions in the Congo? Is mother trying to tell us she's getting ready to shake us off her planet?

There is certainatly a lot of activity! How long has it been that so many are offline though? Very strange....

I check the monitors on almost a daily frequency, just to see what is shaking around the world and here at home. The monitors that are most often offline when I check in are located in China. There will typically be three or four not showing.

Today's large number of unavailable seisemographic images is unusual.
I am not a geologist or earthquake scientist. I got into the habit of checking the internet monitors while following ATS World Wide Seismic thread a while back.

This is unusual in my humble opinion.

Looks pretty normal to me, it looks like it originated near China as it has the largest activity but I can't be certain. But if you look at it it started it seems around 23:00 and 10 minutes in China, and then about 20 minutes later was picked up by the Alaskan monitors and 10 minutes after that picked up by monitors in Albuquerque, NM. Australia picked up the event about the same time Alaska did so I'm sure you can triangulate its position from that...

Keeping with the logic Texas picked up an event just after New Mexico did.

South Korea picked it up very close to when China did, about 5 minutes before. Spitzbergen picked it up a little before Kongsberg which makes sense to me as Kongsberg is a little farther away from the Japanese Islands than Spitzbergen and I have a feeling that it is some siesmic event located near the convergent boundaries off Japan, which is a perfect assumption earthquakes only happen at convergent boundaries as earthquakes only happen where colder rocks are coming together so that rules out the divergent boundaries.

Since China picked it up only shortly after Korea I have a feeling it is actually caused near the convergent boundary that runs with the Ryukyu Islands just south of Japan.

And Petropavlosk picked it up just after Korea started to and it's just north-east of Korea (south Korea). where ever it was it hit Korea and China very soon, then Petropavlosk, then moved outward in circles, hit spitzbergen hit Kongsberg Alaska Hawaii New Mexico then Texas and so on...

Hmm that's cool, hit Arizona like half a minute before New Mexico.

Anyways, there's your daily viewing of the Seismographs, a single event recorded at different times by location seemingly from the area of Japan. If only a Japanese data was available it'd probably be the most earliest detection.

I'd be concerned if all the monitors picked up really massive seismic events at the same time

I want to make a correction, it seems that the over-all events occured during 22:00 hour GMT. Hard for me to tell on the areas where there's a lot of overlap but Antartica's station at the South Pole shows readings begining at about 21:00:20 and continuing through 22:00:nn to about 23:00:40 so it would seem all the larger detections were spaced over the time of 22:00:nn and the preceeding and ending events are the build-up dying-down periods and got clogged with all the marks making it look like it was somewhere around 23:00:nn ... looking at them it could be either or, so it has to have been during 22:00:nn based on Antarctica's data.

In the past there has been alot of Earthquake activity around the globe when the pass of Venus between the Suna nd the Earth happens. And that's getting close. 9 days away now...

posted on May, 30 2004 @ 07:12 AM
No there hasn't been? Where did you get that idea from? The tidal forces of Venus would be no different transiting across the sun as it would be simply passing closest to earth and it's not such a rare event that we as humanity have not been able to record the transit.

Also, I've already covered how this is not "many seismic events" but only one located very near to the convergent boundaries off the coast of Japan.

Oh its just some random shaking, happens all the time.

After a year at ATS reading seismic threads you'll begin to see that "abnormal" things happen more than normal things

well there was a 6.6 Earthquake east off Japan's coast and a 5.1 in southern Alaska.

GASP! An Earthquake in the most seismically active zones on earth?

Dang, nice to find that site with a summary of a whole bunch of seismographs.

I used to check them trough a douzen links all representing days old data from 1 or 2 graphs

Btw, nerdling, anyone ever tell you how much you look like Frodo?

Gasp! a smartpants in our midst........... Who would figure?....

I was pointing out that all the rumbling did cause two earthquakes.......

posted on May, 30 2004 @ 11:05 AM
Nothing unusual at all. As a matter of fact, the time period in question was actually relatively quiet. Try this link It graphically displays all 4.0 and above activity for the current day, prior day and past two weeks. An active 24 period would include 8 to 12 4.0's or better. Hope it's helpful.

It's not me, its Jake Gyllenhaal, star of The Day After Tomorrow

Ooohh, hehe, can he act? I hope so, cause the guy doing Frodo sure couldn't

Anyways, I agree with CommonSense. Activity like that isn't really something I haven't seen before.

Look up long-term and long-duriation seismic charts and seismogaphs at google until you find them, then we'll start having a real discussion, otherwise this thread isn't going to show much.

If you click on the "search" button and look for some of the existing posts on earthquakes,
you'll find what sort of real discussion can be had on ATS in regards to seismic activity.

Welcome to the board.

These are all good too.

Thanks for the welcome, I came here after looking for information on another member of this site, this site is by far the most diverse I've ever seen.

I tried the search and saw all of the results, thanks for the help!

I'm amazed no one even seems to care that I pin-pointed exactly the location of the earthquake on 29-05-04...yet someone posts some website and everyone suddenly revises their thinking? Stop being sheep, there are people here who know enough to read Seismographs...don't need bloody websites.
