Yeah I just saw this too. There was a 5.6 and then it looks as if two more followed as a 5.1. I sure hope everyone in the area is ok.

Mother Earth is certainly rocking tonight!


Have you notice the depths of the COSTA RICA quakes?
Gone from 62.4 to 30.9.
I really hope it isn't a build up to anything, and just the Earth having a stretch.

Hey there freetree64.


Would you mind using the links available above your posting box when you are creating a post? Using the "EX-TEXT" to quote from other sites. It will be much easier for us, the readers. Also, you need to quote your sources using the "link" button above your post box. Part of the TOS here at ATS, and keeps everyone copyright compliant. Thanks!!

When you get to use these more frequently you will realise that EMSC eventually (but not always) closes the gap with USGS. They are both reporting 5.6 now. One should never take much notice of the initial estimates. Give it an hour or two!

Oh yeah..I realized it a while back and always find it funny how they usually get in line with one another after a while and I did google the Volcanos. Thanks.

Chch quake

If you follow the link and click on yesterday (12th July) in the circles page you will see a pattern that follows what I understand to be a 'new' fault cutting passed Akaroa (That's out on the Peninsula for those not local).

Unfortunately I can't say any more about that at the moment as nobody will tell me anything....though I have seen the map.

That Akaroa quake is the furthest south on Banks Pen. in the last 30 days.

I haven't loaded the 12th yet (finished 17 minutes ago) but you can see that trend on this 30 days worth map

Interesting Costa Rica quakes.

#1 - 5.6 = 12 July at 20h11 UTC Depth 62 km. Land elevation 380 m
#2 - 5.6 = 12 July at 20h18 UTC Depth 59 km (7 minutes time, 11 Km NW). Land elevation 250 m
#3 - 5.1 = 12 July at 20h51 UTC Depth 31 km (33 minutes time, 4.8 Km NW). Land elevation 90 m

Three quakes forms a straigt line, NW direction.
That looks like a nice 17+ Km long slip=a=slide
or
These quakes are on average only 11 km from Miravalles which is currently the largest geothermal electrical generation areas outside of Iceland. Currently more than 165 MW electricity.

Muzzy, I am sure Mother Earth must feel like a 'tenderized' lamb chop there South from ChCh. I am amazed at how much punishment that area is getting. By this time the rock base is probably ready to mine and use in concrete without further crushing.

A race between your posting/uploading and list of new quakes!
Very nice presentation and thanks for the LOTS of hard work you are sharing.

I agree Aromaz, he's doing a stirling job!


It is my understanding that there will be information about the Christchurch area released on friday.

Thanks both of you, I try my best with the limited resources I have got.

That Akaroa quake isn't necessarily part of a New Fault since the Moncks Bay 6.3 of 13/6/2011, I was just checking over the new page I've started with revised data, and there was a 2.35ML just a kilometer north on 3/1/2011 at Robinsons Bay, part of the Darfield Aftershock Series.

Actually not so. There are many larger and not just in Iceland

Geothermal energy around the world

One of the reasons I know this is because of the study I did a year ago on the earthquakes around the Geysers in California - the largest geothermal complex in the world.

Not sure how that relates to this but when Baja California kicked off last year I also took a look at Cerro Prieto Geothermal Power Station which has an installed capacity of 720 MW. There seems to be an information conflict as to which is the largest. I think the reason is one is a power plant and the other a complex of power plants.

If you are interested in power plants you may find this of interest. Power Plants Around The World

Having spent 5 years writing programs dealing with ramp up and ramp down rates, dwell times and all the rest of it concerned with power generation in coal, oil and gas stations I have a keen interest in the different types of energy production - and you can throw wind out of the window. A total waste of time and one of the most ungreen forms of energy in the world - but that is another debate!

For those of you interested in the debate about the effect of the Sun and/or the Moon and Planetary alignment on earthquakes page 4 of this PDF may be of interest.

New Concepts in Global Tectonics Newsletter, no. 59, June, 2011

Actually page 2 is of interest as well if like me you are dubious about plate tectonics. (Darned newfangled ideas)
