USGS have lifted this one from 5.9 to 6.1 so it gets added to the tally for the year.

Page on the blog shortly.

Even though Cumbra Veija is the scary one, aren't they all similar in structure resulting in the possibility of a land slide of similar magnitude and consequences?

Also on the quake feed app i have on my iPhone I saw a bunch of small quakes (15 from 5:30 am cst to 6:11 am cst, most in the ~2 range with a couple of 3's in there) in the Peurto Rico region all in close proximity time and space-wise. Any concerns for that area feeling another large shock?

So Mr Puterman,
Might it be safe to say there is an increase in activity on a more grand scale?
in accordance to your stats from previous years?

Nope not really. Admitted that we have worked up to the Mag 9 in Japan but we still have to have 30 or so mag 6 before the end of the year to equal last year, and with a mag 9 in the year I think you would expect at least that. We happen to have had a little run of mag 6, but at the end of the day July has had 12 so far in 24 days which is right on the button for the average.

I still maintain things are calming down. (and 2012 will be a normal year and Comet Elenin will miss us.)

Quite a little swarm so well spotted. The average is around 6 a day so that is well over.

Re volcanoes by the sea, actually ALL mountains by the sea carry this risk to some degree especially where there are steep slopes, but landsides are not global tsunami makers.

re: Landslide != global tsunami maker


On the night of July 9, 1958 an earthquake along the Fairweather Fault in the Alaska Panhandle loosened about 40 million cubic yards (30.6 million cubic meters) of rock high above the northeastern shore of Lituya Bay. This mass of rock plunged from an altitude of approximately 3000 feet (914 meters) down into the waters of Gilbert Inlet (see map below). The impact generated a local tsunami that crashed against the southwest shoreline of Gilbert Inlet. The wave hit with such power that it swept completely over the spur of land that separates Gilbert Inlet from the main body of Lituya Bay. The wave then contiuned down the entire length of Lituya Bay, over La Chaussee Spit and into the Gulf of Alaska. The force of the wave removed all trees and vegetation from elevations as high as 1720 feet (524 meters) above sea level. Millions of trees were uprooted and swept away by the wave. This is the highest wave that has ever been known.

source

But surely you know about this type of occurrence?

And this:


By contrast, megatsunamis are caused by giant landslides and other impact events. Underwater earthquakes or volcanic eruptions do not normally generate such large tsunamis, but landslides next to bodies of water resulting from earthquakes can, since they cause a massive amount of displacement. If the landslide or impact occurs in a limited body of water, as happened at the Vajont Dam (1963) and Lituya Bay (1958) then the water may be unable to disperse and one or more exceedingly large waves may result.

Or am I being denseand not grasping your meaning?

This one is about 100 miles from me. Too small to be felt (by me), but close to Yellowstone. So it raises my hackles.

As far as I am aware at present neither area is exhibiting volcanic quakes, but that said I have not delved deeply into to the Canaries ones.

Puerto Rico is just doing what Puerto Rico does. I recall somewhere at the beginning of Quake Watch 2010 we discussed the apparent link between PR and Chile so maybe the recent bumps in Chile are having an effect?

Yes of course I am aware of Alaska and of Wikipedia's statement. Note first that Alaska did not produce a global tsunami, it was local.

As far as I am concerned Wikipedia has jumped on the doom wagon and what they are saying is in my opinion incorrect. (Now there's a surprise - Wikipedia may be wrong!
)

I subscribe to the theory that massive landslides produce very large local tsunamis but do not have far reaching effects on a global scale.

You should have a read of Dr. GEORGE PARARAS-CARAYANNIS if you have not already done so.

With regard to this an ATS member commented to me:


I can tell you right off the bat what the problem with the original "mega-tsunami" theory was. It was based on dropping a pile of dirt into a tank full of water. And a smooth, rectangular, enclosed tank at that. Such a set-up is about as far from the reality of the situation as you can get while still managing to remain a convincing demonstration.

Puterman... you don't know who I am, but I would certainly endorse the speculation of George Pararas-Carayannis. His is certainly more founded than that of the people who decided dropping rocks at one end of a plexiglass tank was a good idea.


Post source

Consider the length of the fault slip that is involved in a mega-quake. We are talking,huge distances. Banda Aceh for example:


The earthquake ruptured a surface of at least 400 km long and 100km wide, with an average slip of 10-15 meters, and local maximum of 20-25 meters


Report on Banda Aceh mega-thrust earthquake, December 26, 2004

OK it is not going to be all of that but the basic maths 400 x 100 x 0.1 = 4,000 cu km. Sort of makes Cumbre Veija look a bit small.

The mechanism is also vastly different.

re: Landslide != global tsunami maker


For those not into computer /maths speak != is not equal to. 'Landslide is not equal to global tsunami maker'

The statement is correct
