Welcome to Quake Watch 2011



2010 started out with a promise of being one of the busiest earthquake years ever, but towards the end of the year subsided into a definite quiet except for a 6.5 ML in Iran on the Winter solstice. (I hope there are no more biggies between now and 31st). I will be posting a full analysis of the year in terms of numbers and energy release in the first days of the new year.

What will 2011 hold in store? Who knows. I am expecting a moderate sized quake between 6.5 and 7.5 in Greece during the early part of the year, but I am probably wrong! Other than that we should just be building up towards the end of the world inn 2010


Looking back at the 2010 thread and older

2010 First page and last page (261 on 21 Dec)

On the first page you will find links back to previous years

Quake Watch 2009, Quake Watch 2008, Quake Watch 2007, Quake Watch 2006, Quake Watch 2004

Not wishing to blow my own trumpet I have to say that all you ever need in links to Earthquake sites should be found in the link in my signature to my Wordpress Links Site

I would like to say that if anyone has anything to add by way of interesting links and/or educational material I want to hear from you. There is a sticky post on the home page where you can post any links and notify me of broken ones. Please do use it.

Basic essentials are:

European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre

US Geological Survey 7 day listing

Live Internet Seismic Server page

Volcano web cams

Helicorders and seismograms

These and hundreds more from the links on my site.

Don't forget there is a dedicated Volcano Watch 2011 and of course the Yellowstone thread just keeps on a growin'

There was a Solar Activity Watch 2010 thread, but it did not really get as much attention as it should. Maybe there will be a 2011 one?

If you are interested in earthquake connected geophysics then there is an ongoing thread Geophysics - Discussion & Research hosted by Zenius. There are some interesting theories coming up here and it deserves a visit.

To all contributors - keep up the good work. To all lurkers - we know you are there and hope you benefit from our efforts. Please feel free to participate as well.

I got this going as Hellmutt indicated he would not be doing so and we need to be ready for the New Year. I am not into last minute rushes. Once Christmas is upon us things will go to pot (including turkey, beer etc.
)

    Complete mental aberration there. That should of course not be "end of the world inn 2010" - I don't even know where the world inn is - it should have been end of the world in 2012!

    I just did it again typing this - typed 2010 instead of 2012. Must be the cold weather getting at my memory banks.

    I have started on the comparisons for 2010 to the rest of the years 2000 - 2009. I am thinking of just doing 6+ rather than 5+.

    Anyone have any strong feelings on that?

    Happy New Year everyone

    I should have been right on top of this, seeing as we had a 12 hour start on UTC Jan 1, but I forgot, it was lunch time by then here in NZ

    First quake in Europe, and 3rd in the World for 2011 UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) was;

    LAT/LONG: 35.27, 22.61
    UTC: 2011-01-01 00:06:07.0
    DEPTH: 10 km
    MAG: 3.1ML
    LOCATION: Mediterranean Sea, W of Crete

    First quake in New Zealand for 2011 in UTC (Coordinated Universal Time ) and the 4th in the World was;

    REF:3439847
    LAT/LONG: -38.37833, 177.77087
    UTC: 2011/01/01 00:21:39
    NZDT: 2011/01/01 13:21:39
    DEPTH: 27km
    MAG: 2.378ML
    LOCATION: Nr. the Urukokomuka Stream, W of Whatatutu, Gisborne/East Cape
    SOURCE: Geonet National Earthquake Information Database

    However the first quake of 2011 in NZDT (New Zealand Daylight Saving Time) 2011 was a quake probably related to a swarm offshore Matata which has been going for 5 days now
    REF:3439980
    LAT/LONG: -37.76998, 176.7373
    NZDT: 2011/01/01 03:51:42
    UTC: 2010/12/31 14:51:42
    DEPTH: 5km
    MAG: 2.502ML
    LOCATION: NW of Pikowai, Bay of Plenty
    SOURCE: Geonet National Earthquake Information Database

    The first quake reported as Felt, possibly in the World, for 2011 was;
    REF: 3439982/G
    UTC: 2011/01/01 00:30:54
    NZDT: 2011/01/01 13:30:54
    LAT/LON: -43.51, 172.46
    DEPTH: 12 km
    MAG: 2.825ML
    LOCATION: Winstone Quarry, W of Yaldhurst, Christchurch, Darfield Aftershock
    Reported Felt as; MM4 Largely observed 1 Bishopdale
    SOURCE: Geonet National Earthquake Information Database

    NORSAR haven't listed anything for the Arctic and Scandanavia yet, so they may come up with something earlier, they have 2 minutes and 33 seconds to play with

    Hi Muzzy, interesting info there, especially as I used to live a few Km from Matata and having experienced the Edgecumbe Earthquake in the 80's

    yes thank goodness. I was only thinking of you and your fellow kiwis when I was thinking about South America due to something Westcoast said in her Rumblings thread about how there has been alot of movement on the opposite side of her plate so there should be a balance creating movement on the east. I thought that makes sense as South America has gone quiet but all the movement seems to have transferred to north of you guys. Does that make sense?

    Yes, I noticed the Wyoming one disappear, too! It's not on the sub 2.5 list either.

    Had a look at the Yellowstone MCID webicorder and it showed something at about that time.

    Actually they're all rumblings so something happened. Surely UGS AND the yellowstone webis can't all be wrong.
