A few hours later a 5.1 Balleny Islands, earthquake.usgs.gov...
so I reckon same area but a larger quake

It is showing on IU.SBA on the LHZ channel. SBA.IU.00.LHZ and also on the broadband version SBA.IU.00.BHZ as shown on LISS. This is confirmed by VNDA.GT.00.BHZ which is right next to SBA but a different network.

CASY - the other side on Antarctica hardly shows it at all: CASY.IU.00.BHZ Since this is nearly 2,700 kilometres from Balleny against 1,000km for SBA this is not surprising so means it is probably North and West of CASY.

You can't see it at all on MCQ.AU except on the BHN channel MCQ.AU..BHN and very slightly on the BHE channel. This is a bit odd as MCQ is Macquarie Island, which is south of SNZO which shows the quake and shows Balleny. Balleny hardly shows on MCQ either so I am thinking this instrument is de-sensitised.

Equally strange it is not showing on ODZ in NZ: ODZ.NZ.10.LHZ unless you look at the VHZ channel (0.1 Hz) and then you can see it: ODZ.NZ.10.VHZ

At II.TAU (Tasmania) it does not show on any channel, even VMZ. Going back to look at SNZO again on the IRIS versions of the plots the quake does NOT show on the BHZ or LHZ channels, but does show on the VHZ channel: SNZO.IU.00.VHZ. Comparing the signal on SBA and SNZO VHZ there is exactly 3 minutes difference between the signals for the mystery quake and the Balleny quake, in other words both signals are the same distance from both stations, and SBA got both signals before SNZO.

To cut a very long story short after another hour or two fiddling with excel working out how far this may have travelled based on the Balleny distances, and drawing circles paint shop pro until I get a meeting point, I have come to the conclusion that this quake was as below. If this was below 4.5 - which it may well have been, then USGS won't show it.



Edit to say: The orange circle by the meeting point is Balleny at 05:56:31

Another edit to say: I guess this proves that the seismos don't lie, even if the quakes are not listed!

Wow. Great find Vitch. 2 things struck me about that video.

1) Unbelievable how modern cars float! The guy who got out of his car would probably have been safer in it.

2) All cleared up! No messing about.

good work there, I think you are right with the location.

However .............
............... on all the LISS graphs the mystery quake has a bigger signal so theoretically it should be bigger. Having said that on those other graphs you linked to it looks about the same size.

I'll make a note (along with a million other things to do) to keep an eye on the USGS 18th June list and see if anything pops up over the next week or two.

I'm sure that what is happening down there is something to do with what is happening with Christchurch, too bad they didn't have a siesmic station on Campbell Island

Amazing.


The NZ Govt should see this and see how a clean up is done, they really need to stop messing about and get Christchurch's CBD safe so people can get on with their lives

Depends really on what the signal passed through on it's way. They are close together but would that fact that one is on an oceanic transform fault and the other on a continental rift boundary make any difference?

The quake was closer to SNZO by around 140km but further from SBA by about the same amount. Actually the signal on SBA is almost the same size - in fact if you ignore the first spike the Balleny region quake is slightly larger (80 screen pixels to 72 screen pixels)

Another factor may be depth. Remember that on on one I could only get anything off the N and E channels. Does this indicate a shallower quake or perhaps a sideways movement as opposed to a vertical one?

Possibly, I've noticed that quakes up Tonga way seem to travel down the Plate Boundry with a stronger reading on the NZ siesmos than the ones to the east in the Fiji Basin which have to travel through more rock.

Ashburton Lakes
Quakes to the east quakes to the west


I think I mentioned this area before the 6.3 at Moncks Bay on Monday last week, there were a couple of 3's either side of Lake Heron.
Looks like the 6.3 triggered a 4.7 there and subsequently they are having their own little aftershock party.

That Chile quake been upgraded to 6.5
earthquake.usgs.gov...
21.898°S, 68.299°W
right under a twin cone volcano too



San Pedro
Volcano Types:
Stratovolcanoes
Lava domes
Pyroclastic cone
Summit Elev: 6145 m
Latitude: 21.88°S
Longitude: 68.40°W
The composite volcano of San Pedro in the arid Atacama desert of northern Chile is one of the world's highest historically active volcanoes. The 6145-m-high basaltic andesite-to-dacitic San Pedro is located to the west of its older twin volcano, 6092-m-high San Pablo. The youngest cone of San Pedro was constructed within a large horseshoe-shaped escarpment left by the collapse of an older edifice, which produced a large debris avalanche to the west, perhaps accompanied by a major pumice eruption. Thick dacitic lava flows with steep-sided fronts mantle the upper portion of the younger cone. The youthful-looking La Poruña scoria cone on the western flank produced an 8-km-long lava flow, but Worner et al. (2000) obtained a surprisingly old Helium surface-exposure age of 103,000 years from a juvenile block of the lava flow. Reports of variable reliability mention historical eruptions of San Pedro in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Thanks for the info Muzzy. I thought that was very close to the area, but wasn't 100% sure. There are so many of you on this thread that know so much information in regards to where things are located. I am just a quake watcher myself

soooo we can expect an activation of the san pedro volcano ....the 6.5 was 10km away of it... :-(

San Pedro is one of the tallest active volcanoes in the world. It is located on the edge of the Atacama Desert, in Chile. San Pablo volcano is its neighbor to the east and from which is connected by a high saddle. Cerro Paniri volcano lies on the opposite side of the San Pedro River Valley. When climbing this volcano you have to wear a mask over your mouth to block out harmful toxins.

If you mean big explosive kind of eruption; at present it is not very likley. That quake was deep. South American volcano's usually warns about eruptions long ahead in time; unlike their criminal Thief-in-the- night-African partners.

Hmmmm so they moved the epi-center since I looked then

Thats why I put up the Lat/Long in my original reply.
At that stage it was right under the right flank of the eastern cone (on Google Earth)

My apologies also the Antofagasta PDF was paged and should not have been. I had reinstalled the software and forgot to reset the setting.

Here is a revised unpaged copy: usc0004by6.zip (2.7Mb)

Same applies to the PNG quake: usc00048pr.zip (1.5Mb)

That is it, the rest are OK. Sort of surprised that no one wrapped me over the knuckles for that silly error. Maybe no one looks at them.
