Is there anything significant about this quake that deserves it's own thread?

As you said, it's another one. And there will be many more, considering we always get hundreds of 5+ quakes a year.

From what I can gather, the Nicobar Islands are part of a subduction zone, as it is located near the boundary of the Indian plate and the Burmese microplate.

Check this out, and you'll see that the area has had many 6's and 7's, and bigger, in the past hundred years. Not sure if you know how the Richter scale works, but a 6.0 releases 10 times more energy than a 5.0. So this quake is certainly not significant for the area.

If we wanted to post a new thread for every 5+ earthquake in an earthquake prone area, there will be hundreds and hundreds of threads. That's why there is the Quake Watch 2010, to post quakes such as this.

Unless there is something significant you missed in the OP?

Mb is a megabyte, a unit to measure the amount of information used. earthquake intensity is measured either on the Richter or the Mercalli scale

How are earthquake magnitudes measured

read the post by Curious and Concerned again, you might learn something

Mb could also be megabars...
But I don't think that's it either.

Good for you vyrox for posting this earthquake. It brings out the Quake Watch 2010 groupies and the Whats Happening at Yellowstone groupies and puts them on the attack to have all of the earthquakes put on their threads; which is a joke. They have done this to all of you people that start earthquakes threads of your own.

Quake Watch 2010 is a waste of ATS space. I'm shocked that the owner of this site hasn't shut Quake Watch 2010 down on ATS. The amount of space they are using is absolutely astronomical, and there is "NO GAIN" out of all of the information that they copy down day after day and re-copy in a different format time after time.

Quake Watch 2010 is not about a "Conspiracy" of any type that I can see. So... really Quake Watch 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013..... needs to be put on BELOW TOP SECRET. There is nothing about Quake Watch 2010 that needs to be put on ATS. The OWNER of ATS simply needs to wake up and say, "Hey, ATS is about CONSPIRACIES and where is the CONSPIRACY in Quake Watch 2010"?

ATS is supposed to be about CONSPIRACIES not every earthquake that comes along; that is the job of the USGS and they have their own site. Why should everything that the USGS posts be re-posted here on ATS day after day, especially when you can go to their site and locate it at any time?

IF there is an earthquake conspiracy in the Quake Watch 2010 thread, then where is the conspiracy and why do they have to post every earthquake that is basically unimportant? It's nothing but play time for people beating their chests showing who can repost the most worthless earthquakes on this site and eat up band width and space.

Some of the Avatars on Quake Watch 2010 are absolutely humongous in size and yet they post small posts quite frequently eating up band width. If I was the owner of this site I would move them over to BELOW TOP SECRET for about a month or two until the thread basically goes down the crapper because no one would be interested in it on BTS.

I don't mind people making posts on ATS about Earthquakes that have some kind of CONSPIRACY behind them, but to repost or copy most of the earthquakes that the USGS posts is absolutely absurd.

There are areas of the world that have Earthquake Conspiracies going on; and yes very big earthquakes that kill lots of people are important, but not other junky earthquakes where absolutely nothing is happening.

The earthquakes in the region of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma are earthquakes of great interest and importance, because these earthquakes are manmade and they have basically all started popping up within the last two years.

The area of Dallas, Texas is another important area because of the man made earthquakes down there that were occurring; and the fact that there will soon be more high pressure injection wells going online down in that region. You can see where they are going to go on-line down there by the KING KONG gorilla pens that they have put up around them to block the view of onlookers. These fences are probably 30-50 feet high with huge gates, and these enclosures look exactly like the enclosure and gates that kept KING KONG in his place.

The area of Hays/Russell, Kansas is a fantastic place to study earthquakes especially when high pressure injection started creating man-made earthquakes there; two of them creating M6.8 earthquakes that took on international importance (both of which I studied and put into newspapers before they struck claiming they where both larger than M5.4 while being studied, these occurred at their linked areas as expected).

The area around Denver, Colorado was an interesting place to watch in the late 1950s, 60s and early 70s because of the man-made earthquakes that the military created. One of the earthquakes actually caused over a million dollars in damage back then and the creators of the earthquake had to pay for the damage.

There are many deadly earthquakes around the world that are caused by mankind. But... I don't see others putting this earthquake conspiracy stuff on the internet; just a lot of worthless earthquake material being recopied and re-arranged into a different format.

I see a lot of crap on the internet about HAARP causing earthquakes, but that stuff is a joke created basically by one man who has no proof; just accusations.

Most man-made earthquakes are caused by high pressure injection in oil extraction, some are caused by man-made dams, and some are caused by explosions at mine sites and the removal of mined material. High pressure injection can cause earthquakes within the region or in another region hundreds or thousands of miles away.

I didn't mean to change the direction of your thread vyrox, I just thought I'd open up the eyes of others.

I'm a little confused about the point of your post. You congratulate the OP for posting a thread about a common earthquake with no hint of a conspiracy, and then complain about the amount of posts on earthquakes with no conspiracy on ATS?


And I have never ever posted in either of the threads you mention, so your assumptions are incorrect. I questioned the need for a thread when there is nothing significant about this quake. The reason being that their seems to be a lot of hysteria about earthquakes at the moment, and posting a new thread for every minor quake is even more of a waste of bandwidth than posting them on the threads you are criticising. Would you rather a new thread for every single earthquake on the planet?

Actually, I think you find (if you have followed the Quake Watch thread) that a few conspiracy theories / investigations have branched out from it - namely the drilling you mention and also a watch on the volcanic range that Anmarie started.

By observation we can see patterns, people then pick up on those patterns and go off and form theories - even conspiracy theories.

As for this particular thread - I don't think a 5.3 merits a new thread either - but as more people see the quake watch thread grow and what is being recorded they, too, will come to realise a 5.3 isn't unusual or significant (although, significant is often not related to the size of the event but more to the damage/death it may cause due to location).

Hi Curious and Concerned,

I congradulated vyrox for posting his thread because it brought out my thoughts that I wrote about above, and I was grateful that he stirred those thoughts.

And... I never stated that you, Curious and Concerned, have written any posts in the other threads; so I guess my assumptions were right on target after all.

Yes and No, Curious and Concerned as to your statement that one person opening up a thread on an earthquake takes up more band width. Yes it does per individual earthquake reported, but no it doesn't take up more band width because hundreds, maybe thousands of junk earthquakes are reported on the other two threads I mentioned. Where as, if only significant earthquakes were reported, then I can see where justice is being done, but constant copying of the USGS sites earthquake reports is outrageous.

As you state there is no reason for a thread when there is nothing significant about it, yet hundreds and maybe thousands of earthquakes are being or have been posted in the other two threads that I have mentioned that are definitely not significant in any way, shape or form; talking about taking up band width.

I simply want to see people posting about something that they think is significant instead of just posting to make a thread bigger and bigger. As for your avatar, I think it is larger than allowed, but I've seen others even larger. The avatar directly below you is even larger, and I'm sure its larger than allowed also.

I'm glad you made your point Curious and Concerned, you have done well.

Hi MoorfNZ,

The drilling didn't branch out from the above two threads that I mentioned, the drilling and the investigations branched out from other threads way before those threads. As a matter of fact those two threads branched out of other previous threads.

But you are right that I haven't been following those threads because they are just a bunch of clutter; waisted space and a waist of time for me to follow them. Especially when anyone can go to the USGS site and pull up that information much faster and easier. If it wasn't for the USGS site and everyone copying from it verbatum with or without new formating, then those threads wouldn't exist.

There have been no patterns that anyone has seen on those two threads that can lead to any conspiracy theory that will end in finding out any conspiracy, especially when it comes to HAARP.

Then you wrote about this thread not being significant because its about an M5.3 earthquake; well... I see hundreds if not thousands of earthquakes listed on the other two threads that are far below this M5.3 earthquake in magnitude that have no significance at all.

There should be a significance about the earthquakes, or there should be a conspiracy of some sort about the earthquakes, other than just seeing who can post the most earthquakes on both of those sites so that they can become a bronze member on ATS. Because that is what it all boils down to for some members, and other members in the past have complained about their posts so that they could get points.

I like your avatar, but I believe its larger then regulation allows; but maybe I'm wrong.

There are conspiracies in earthquakes, but I don't see anything in those two posts that I mentioned before.

What I can tell you for sure is that approximately 750,000 people have died from earthquakes that never should have died. All of those people should be alive, but unfortunately I'm sure many more will die before its all over.

Earthquakes are easy to detect before they strike. They are so easy to detect before they strike, that its completely 100% impossible for any naturally occurring near surface destructive earthquake to strike without it being detected well in advance.

www.youtube.com...

There are my 22 videos showing why its completely 100% impossible for any naturally occurring near surface destructive earthquake to strike without it being detected well in advance; those videos are the truth about earthquakes. My knowledge is far in advance of the rest of the world combined. Decades of work. But now... my work has advanced even more in other directions, mostly visual. I'm currently studying the entire electromagnetic spectrum visually, something no one else has ever done; and the stuff that I see is amazing and the stuff that I can see through is amazing also, and its amazing that the optical equipment can detect it. Optics make the entire electromagnetic spectrum visible.

I think we perceive the existence of the Watch thread in very different ways. It's not a "hey, look, an earthquake" thread - it's just folk who are watching quakes coming together and pooling their info.

I'm really not sure why it's offended so many folk. I think its very existence and continuance speaks volumes. I'm not going to continue to defend it, the ATS powers that be will, no doubt, decide.

Again, thanks for taking the time to reply and I am humbled by your self-proclaimed immense knowledge - please bear with the rest of us while we observe and learn.

A little on edge there, RussianScientists??


Personally i have been visiting the Yellowstone thread since the beginning but never got into the earthquake watch thread. The Yellowstone thread does not have a very high conspiracy level to it but the information within that thread is amazing!!

I get your point that it doesn't have anything to do with a conspiracy in it self but i am glad there is a place, such as ATS, that collects and goes over the data provided by the different sources out there.

Personally i believe that a "global toilet paper usage watch thread" could even be validated merely by the fact that somebody is keeping an eye on the usage and posting this information on ATS so somebody else can use it.

Somebody has to watch the watchers, if you know what i mean??

Peace

PS: Oh i really don't think a magnitude 5.3 validates the creation of a new thread....but that's just my opinion.

Thank you for your post - thread! I hope you were not in any danger from the quake that you brought us here to.

This world is ever quaking and as such - All of you folks should keep Earthquake survival tips handy - there is a thead I know of for that and tries to keep people informed of such quakes and threats and includes great links for much needed knowledge.

In addition, I would like to conclude - Please Mr. Russian - I can't say the rest - and you are not Russian -and I don't want to insult them - but, please attack us on our thread and not somewhere to else to confuse people.. But, - in thinking about it - Thank you for pointing out the Threads full of knowledge and information - and the latest updates.

Good for you MoorfNZ, I see you cut your avatar to about 1/3 of the length it used to be.

Go ahead and learn my immense knowledge, that is why I put the videos on YouTube; for people to learn. If you think the rest of the world knows more than I know about earthquakes, then tell me why the rest of the world isn't using that knowledge now.

Let's see anybody show how to detect the pulses. The pulses exist everywhere on Earth and pass through everything, nothing stops the pulses from being detected.

There is a lot of stuff out there that mankind is ignorant about that exists everywhere. Tesla proved that with his car that ran on energy that exists in the air. Leedskalnin proved it when he moved rocks that weighed up to 30 tons. Its all in the air, and is available to easily be found.

Hi operation mindcrime,

No I'm not on edge at all, I'm calm and relaxed. Why should I be on edge. I'd just like to see people doing more than copying other peoples stuff. Why should ATS people copy the USGS sites earthquake stuff constantly?

If anybody wants earthquake data, then go to the USGS site and look it up. All I see are people on those sites that are posting in order to get points. Points don't mean anything to me.

I like to see interesting threads. How many people that you know actually want to read a thread that is over 20 pages in length filled with data that is boring and not worth squat?

Did you personally read both of those threads from the start to the finish? Would you? If you did, then tell me what really caught your attention as being important in those threads that will make a difference in the future?

Cheers my friend.

Quakewatch 2010 is just as important here on ATS as any thread involving a possible "threat". Some people call HAARP, (branching off into the corrupt politics aspect of ATS) some people think CME'S. Either way it is a VALUABLE asset to ATS even tho you prolly believe in *neither* which is also fine. Then we can also credit the "doomsday" and "prophecy" aspects of ATS to the creation of these threads... Earthquakes are VERY rich in conspiracy content.

The fact is, these EQ threads quite possibly could intertwine ALL of the major conspiracies on ATS.

I'm sorry you feel it's innapropriate to your obviously highly enlightened scientific mind...however ATS is full of different ideas and beliefs and yes *many* if not *most* invlove "conspiracies". It's unfortunate you believe that the yellowstone thread and the 2010 quakes thread should be eliminated from this site, but I hate to inform you that they are likely not going anywhere, anytime soon....unless of course there is some kind of crazy false-flag event that leads to their ultimate doom.


Edit: With this said, I don't think a 5.3 deserves a thread of it's own.

Nice work Wookiep,

Yes I believe that those two threads should be in BELOW TOP SECRET. As for CME's or HAARP causing earthquakes; very doubtful would be my answer to the earthquakes that others state that HAARP or CME's have caused.

All magnitudes of earthquakes are detectable ahead of time; but not all earthquakes are detectable simply because some are cloaked by larger earthquakes, some are small and deep, and some are too far out under large bodies of water.

What are they caused by? In Nature, many are caused by the expansion of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge which is running down the center of the Atlantic Ocean. It splits apart approximately as fast as your finger nails grow. This splitting causes pressure in both the East and West directions directly away from the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.

As these abnormal pressures are exerted in both directions they produce pressure further off in the distance. All of this can be tracked by Piezoseismology; meaning that the chain reactions of earthquakes advancing along are easily tracked. No other system of any kind can do this.

As the chain reaction of the earthquakes head towards the Pacific Plate, the Pacific Plate being denser, they are forced to circumnavigate the Pacific Plate in a counter clockwise direction.

Man used to create earthquakes mainly with explosives, now man also creates earthquakes with high pressure injection and massive dams.

While your opinion is appreciated, it's not the stance of many on this forum. Opinions do not warrant threads to not be used (or eliminated) based on your dis-satisfaction alone. There are many who share the same beliefs here on ATS yes, this is true. I'm not sold on HAARP either, but the discussion is why we are here. The threads you wish to be eliminated are the threads to discuss data for *or* against conspiracy claims.



All magnitudes of earthquakes are detectable ahead of time; but not all earthquakes are detectable simply because some are cloaked by larger earthquakes, some are small and deep, and some are too far out under large bodies of water.



Right. Explain how the yellowstone thread or the 2010 quakewatch thread make this any less valid?



What are they caused by? In Nature, many are caused by the expansion of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge which is running down the center of the Atlantic Ocean. It splits apart approximately as fast as your finger nails grow. This splitting causes pressure in both the East and West directions directly away from the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.

Hell, I dunno you're the scientist! I don't think showing your expertise in the matter proves that the mentioned threads should not exsist. Perhaps you should post more in them. That *is* their pourpose afterall.




Man used to create earthquakes mainly with explosives, now man also creates earthquakes with high pressure injection and massive dams.



Whos disputing that?? There are many posts on both threads that actually confirm this. In fact there have often been posts that mention quakes not even on USGS due to this VERY thing. Your whole argument makes no sense. If you disagree with the data found in those threads then POST in those threads... In no way whatsoever have you shown their exsistance to be moot.

Well considering I was the only poster in the thread who had mentioned the quake watch thread, and you specifically attacked the "Quake Watch 2010 groupies" who are "on the attack to have all of the earthquakes put on their threads", I find it odd that you weren't reffering to me. Right on target? If you say so, you are the scientist

Well this quake is just like the other quakes you'd consider "junk" on those threads. I'm not sure why this one appealed to you, but if it brings out a good rant, I guess it's ok.



As for your avatar, I think it is larger than allowed, but I've seen others even larger. The avatar directly below you is even larger, and I'm sure its larger than allowed also.

Huh? My avatar is pretty tiny, isn't it? It's a bit too big horizontally, which is why, unfortunately, you can't see the main section of the break, but it does leave something for the imagination (for those that understand, at least).

If you are reffering to my background pic, you can clearly see it is duplicated till the end of the post. It is a single silver fern pic, which repeats to the end. Maybe a short post will carry on to the edge of the photo, but I can't say I can recall posting short enough to find out.

Also, I was interested in checking out the information you provided, but the link doesn't appear to work. Although I am well aware humans can cause earthquakes, i'm interested to see how you can predict earthquakes in advance. Do you need to have special equipment on location to make a prediction? Anything coming up soon?
