Haven't been able to access Badan Meteorologi, Klimatologi dan Geofisika Indonesia for a couple of days
This is the address I normally go to

Off line, have they moved or is it just me

An interesting question. Probably not but the official answer will be "telemetry errors". I am not sure if a solar flare would do that.

You could try asking them? It would be interesting to see what they say.

Don't know whether this is the right place to post this but thought it may be relevant.

I came accross this article:

Apologies if the link doesn't work. I am still trying to figure out how to work this posting thing.

Anyway, my thinking is that if a pair of tectonic plates grind to halt, or even change direction, then there has to be a domino effect throughout all the other plate interfaces.

I know geological timescales are vast but could this explain some of the unusual stuff we are seeing?

Probably WWII ordinance again. I will see if I can find out from my contact in BGS.

Magnitude 4.3 - CHIHUAHUA, MEXICO

A little activity on the Texas - Mexico border.

Two 4.3 and one 4.1 in the last week is a little out of the ordinary, but nothing major.

Not much activity over the last 20 years in the area.

Not that far from me, sort of. We do still have lots of WW2 mines in the sea and bombs/other exploding things on the beaches. Quite common to hear the explosions and to find things. After all these years they are still very dangerouse.

Just to add, HR.MS.SNELLIUS and two others are in that area, or were. Lat/Lon: 52.345421 / 4.2581801

I see that the other week. There have been about five or six, I took a screen shot of them as I was going to post it here and ask. But never got round to it!
Was wondering what they meant by "explosion"

Last time when there were two off Le Havre it was eventually confirmed as being WWII ordinance that was destroyed.

This is more of the same I have no doubt.

Debunking the Lunar Phase Connection

Well for New Zealand anyway.

I keep track of the Lunar Phases on my Time/Mag graph on NZ EQ's Blog, but I was looking for some way of presenting the info at a glance to be able to analyse it.

Came up with this.
Its pretty self explanatory, the chance of a Lunar Phase matching even 3 x Mag 4+ quakes or a single Mag 5 is less than 33.3% max., for 2011 anyway.
I might go back and do the same for 2010 later in the week.

Note the Feb 21 Lyttelton quake doesn't match any phase. The Aftershocks might skew the % calculation for that month abit, but hey thats the way the earth moved.

Lot of 5+'s in April

I'm having an issue with my favorite earthquake map


Is there a global map out there preferably using the Google interface that shows all of the 2+M and greater?
Even better have an adjustable filter that you can select which magnitudes to show?

It seems that on said map only the smaller magnitudes are shown in the US. I would like to monitor the EQ's throughout the Cascadia range from California to Alaska and not have the large gap where BC is.

Right now I have to hybrid the not so great Earthquakes Canada map with the Global one.

See what i'm talking about below:

Any better maps that are not so racist?

Evening Puterman and everyone!

Question, did the blasting of the levee register on the shake maps? Please keep a close eye out through this night as more blasts are going to be happening and I just feel awful, feel terrible really. Do not have the links or knowledge to look for myself. Something is wrong, I sense it .

Yes, here is the program that let's you select the magnitude and by days with easy navigation sliders

good work,

my problem is "working out" when the most pressure is "built up " +/or "released"...
at what point is "MAX"???


is the theory...that an earthquake is more likely when certain "pressures" are BUILDING UP (via moon interaction),
is it at EXACT moon phase,

OR is it AFTER, when "pressure" is "relieved"...?

any thoughts?

cause i was thinking that there may be a correlation between moon activity and E/Qs,
but perhaps a day or so AFTER "max" has passed...+ pressure released...?
but only guessing...

also i think high/low pressure changes may have an effect...especially LOW..


posted on May, 3 2011 @ 12:29 PM
I'm not sure ho precise the theory is, from memory the pundits who promote it allow 5 days either side of a phase and that just about covers the whole month

The thing is you tend to just note the days that something happens and forget about the other 66% of the time when quakes happen outside of a phase day

Like today is a New Moon ( see post below)

I haven't downloaded that, as I have too much junk on my computer already.

Does it include Canadian ( and New Zealand for that matter ) quakes?

Thats what the question was
