Just had what felt like a moderate earthquake in Anchorage.

If you use GEE you can hone in on local stations and watch the shocks come in on the real-time seismos

Sorry for the name typo earlier... What exactly is GEE? Have a link or is it a program?

BTW, The Washington one was about a hour prior to Alaska and it was only a 2.3 if I recall correctly

Ahh, that's why - I thought you meant there was a big one

From RSOE

Looks as if there were two quakes? 1 second from each other - is that possible experts?

I need to do that. Believe it or not, I actually got a degree in Geology in 1975. Never used it or worked at it since. About all it gives me is I understand what people are talking about. My interests are more in the line of Mineralogy and Prospecting.

The features up here are awesome to see. The whole place is like a textbook.

I've seen GEE mentioned and I'll have to look at that tomorrow.

That same area over there seems to have at least one earthquake on the list every day. We feel one here about three times a year I'd guess. Many I don't feel but hear about them.

I saw it mentioned on another thread and I thought it was bigger too until I looked. I shouldn't have mentioned it actually!

I would think its just a case of a clock not being synchronized. The quake was quite long in duration. About 12 to 15 seconds I think.

That's what I thought as well, but Im guessing that was maybe them just adjusting it since it was a min later? If not, that might not be good news.

Here's a link for GEE (Global Earthquake Explorer) It's very good - and you can upload other station groups. Probably best to just play around with the stations listed, first, until you get the hang of it.

Download it. Go to Realtime events and click on the stations you want to monitor, then "load realtime date" and click on seismo's and you're away...

Download: www.seis.sc.edu...

Additional info on GEE from NASA: gcmd.nasa.gov...

Would really need to see co-ordinates, but I think that perhaps the length of the quake means it was one but recorded as two. I'm not an expert, just an avid amateur

Yes, Blaine, we have hundreds of quakes a week here in New Zealand, most go undetected by us mere mortals. The GEOnet service here only lists those that are "felt" unless you delve further into their datasets.

New Zealand quake monitoring: www.geonet.org.nz...

Also interesting to note that USGS doesn't report our quakes unless they are quite large.

Someone is still working on the Alaska 5.3 because the depth keeps changing!

I did not know that area had that many quakes. Sounds a bit like here. I'll have to watch the sites more often. This is the first time I can recall where I actually think there are enough bigger quakes to be unusual. Does it seem that way to you?

RSOE does that all the time when USGS revises magnitudes. It's just one quake, with a revised magnitude. Don't go by RSOE for accuracy, there's no reason the Hungarian government would be a better source for US quakes.

This is a wee bit off topic, but while looking at the earthquake map I also see other things that have happened around the world. Do you ever wonder about the "Epidemic Hazards?" I mean isn't that something that can possibly spread far and wide?
For example this is showing in Canada for now and it says one person injured, but really no other information.

Full-screen
Epidemic Hazard

Event date: 06.07.2010 03:29:05
Country: Canada
State: Province of Saskatchewan
Location:- [Mistawasis First Nation]

Is it just me or do people really not just not notice these things or care or what?
It doesn't even give any information on just What the Epidemic may be.
Again sorry if it is a bit off topic, but since we are here yackin anyway....

.2 miles? That is pretty shallow is it not? They may have been shook up pretty good.

Is the USGS one of the better places to look?
