Thanks Muzzy - that's exactly what I was looking for


Just been a 5.3 in China.

Whack the co-ordinates into Google Earth and tell me what you see nearby...

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

What else?????

I'd sure be interested in what the quake energy is up to now that we are halfway through the year, and we were within a gnat's breath of exceeding the most energy released in last decade back at the end of March if I remember correctly??

Average of 134 mag 6's each year and already we're over 120 with this week's activity. Although I appreciate Japan's a/shocks push up the numbers somewhat.

Welcome to ATS and in particular to Quake Watch.

Here you will find some of the best information about earthquakes on the Internet. Why do I say that? Because the members who frequent this thread, and those who lurk and occasionally stick their heads up into the firing line on the whole produce excellent work that is based on facts.


I read on several sites that earthquakes have been increasing in frequency and intensity. Some have been predicting this since 1998.


As you have discovered there are some sites that are not quite so picky about their data. As muzzy has already pointed out this has been relatively quiet. Don't know about the hundred years bit yet but certainly as I have said before I am not expecting any great shakes for the rest of the year and maybe next, based on preliminary findings from past data.

By great shakes I mean 8.5+, those that are normally considered megaquakes in these modern days of superlatives.


Perhaps this is due to Expanding Earth theory as the Sun gets hotter and heats the Earth internally with neutrinos. Neutrinos can't heat us as they just pass through us...much like the 2012 movie.


I like this. It is good to see an interest in alternative theories and something I heartily encourage. You will never get laughed at or ridiculed here for introducing alternative theories that at least have some modicum of possibility. That might not be that case if you try to suggest that mega-earthquakes are caused by HAARP (they are not OK - let's just get that straight) or that Elenin is a brown dwarf that is 10 times as massive as Jupiter and is pulling on the Earth, or any other such whacky theories.

You will find some of the alternative on this thread: Geophysics which is hosted by Zenius who you will also see on this thread.

Anything of a speculative nature to do with Yellowstone / Fracking / Arkansas / Bird Deaths / Hudson Bay / Life / Death / Resurrection / etc you can post on the thread hosted by Robin Marks: Robinesque Ruminations

Volcano stuff you will find on Volcano Watch and last but by no means least the giant Yellowstone thread is a BIG read all about the Park just about to hit page 700.

These and more ATS links, and links to many external sites you can find in my signature block and in the signatures of others.

I will get back to you on that in a couple of days. I am rather tied up with something else just now - not least of which is getting my system running properly again! Still have not got my quake data program going again.

You did not answer this one? www.abovetopsecret.com...

Just had a sizeable wobble here - in town again (christchurch) though, not close, just vague wobble..

Yes I spotted what you saw but my immediate reaction was impact site.

Look at it closer I don't actually think it is either - but you never know!

Yeah, I couldn't quite make out if it was an inny or outy!



Our wee jolt was a piddly 4.4

Just thought I would throw these in here for no particular reason as I am looking at Alaska at present and these are part of the process.

The area covered here is basically the Aleutian Islands and not the main part of Alaska. The longitudes go from 170 10 180 and -180 to -160. The latitudes from 50 to 60. I have 'adjusted' the longitudes so they are all positive. +/-180 is actually 20 on this graph.

First Longitude/Depth with proportional Energy release 'bubbles'. The very tiny ones are Mag 6.5.



Now Latitude/Depth with the same proportional Energy release



Note how the 9.1 (1957-03-09T14:22:32.600Z) dwarfs the red coloured Mag 8 (1986-05-07T22:47:11.640Z) but was actually in about the same spot.

Not quite made it yet. 2004 is still the largest of the decade 2002 to 2011. The difference @ 83k+ TJoules is actually about the same as the total output for 1962.

A Mag 6.8 is 1000 TJoules so to catch up it would need to have the equvalent if 83 Mag 6.8 quakes during the rest of the year, or one Mag 8 and 20 mag 6.8 would do it as well.

This is just pure speculation: Sticking out my head, right into a wasp nest.

Based on Solar potential though as scientists say it is abnormally quiet, not according to the model) it is my expectation that we will have a rough ride between mid October and end November = 6 week period. At that time Earth will be between Jupiter and Sun with Saturn (and nearly Venus/Mars) in opposition. Over this past 4 years I noticed more of the M1.0 and bigger solar flares are in direction of Jupiter. Because of the lull we have now in what is suppose to be solar Max; I think there might be a series of solar storms over that period. Off course - there are lots of IF's and this is Nature at its least knows; so let us see.

NOT restricted to that period but in coming six months I THINK:

There will be at least one more 8.0 in this 2011. Besides the Japan fault line I think the most likely is the West coast of Americas and there I would put Gulf of California/Mexico on top followed by Chile. IF Gulf of California it will be a very bad one with big wave Tsunami.

China is overdue for a fairly big quake If Xizang province around 6.5;
though I rather expect a jump of 7.0+ in Shaanxi province.

The last expected location is in the Old World: I expect a 6.5 upwards to 7.5 in region Northern Iran, Armenia through to Western Turkey. This is one is purely a gut feeling, no other info that could indicate this except swarms of quakes. Tabrisk(Iran) region rates a little higher potential than Western Turkey for this big one.

Here's one more. You may know that I'm obsessed with water. And liquefaction.

The Los Angeles link


Because the magnitude scale is logarithmic, a 7.5 quake is 1,000 times stronger than a 7.2 quake.
The new Scripps study includes maps that show the San Jacinto and southern San Andreas fault lines bracketing the Imperial and Coachella valleys, and a curlicue-shaped Imperial Fault beneath El Centro and Mexicali, home to more than 1 million people.


No, actually a 7.5 is 2 x bigger and 3 x stronger NOT 1000 times stronger.
