Looks like Spain is using mb

Phase data for the event

Portugal I can't find any info so probably ML.

Still think it is weird!

OK maybe not, but they are not that common. This is the list for the last 365 days.

So thats what was behind the "Fases" button. I was too scared to click on it

yeah there are some high magnitudes on the Spanish page there

Here is a small quake. Considering how small it is, is there any point in paying attention to it.
It's in Arkansas. Here's the quake.,-92.485&spn=2,2&f=d&t=h&hl=e

So what! Well if you look at this quake on Google Earth, you will notice that it sits between two drilling pads. The epicenter sits 350 meters from the pad. The other pad is about 400 meters away. The two pads are about 750 meters away from each other and this quake found it's way right between the two of them.

And it's claimed the two have nothing whatever to do with each other. The drilling couldn't possibly set off earthquakes. There's no documented proof. It's splitting hairs and is in the bluntest terms, a deception.

Over 700 quakes in one of the most heavily drilled areas in the United States.
Coincidence- correct!?

Read more on this other wierd thread.
What does Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and Akansas have in common. They all have had swarm earthquakes recently. And they all are covered with gas wells. All three are fracked. All have residents complaining about their water. And now the people of Central Arkansas are convinced the gas companies are causing the quakes.
People in Oklahoma are also pointing their finger toward the gas industry.

Puterman made me a spectacular map. You can research the area yourself.

Here's an article about the residents at a meeting.
"4. 516 earthquakes


Between Jan. 1 and Dec. 19 of 2010, Faulkner County was rocked by 516 recorded earthquakes specific to the Guy area.

According to Arkansas Geological Survey, the State of Arkansas recorded 682 for the year.

The swarm of seismic activity prompted new study sites in the county and a meeting between geologists, leaders of the gas and oil industry and area citizens.

The belief was voiced widely by area citizens that the increase in resource extraction associated with the Fayetteville Shale play in the area and the increase in earthquakes were related in some way.

At a town hall-style November meeting at Guy-Perkins School, geologists with AGS told citizens that after extensive research, the agency could find no relationship between hydraulic “fracking” and recent earthquakes.

Geologists’ findings, though inconclusive, do not exclude a relationship between area seismicity and injection wells, saltwater deposit sites that reach greater depths than extraction wells.

The agency said it would be well into 2011 before research would provide conclusive answers.

According to AGS, the largest earthquake recorded in the area in 2010 occurred on Oct. 11, two miles southeast of Guy. It was registered as a magnitude-4.0."

Here's the townhall meeting on You Tube. The videos are somewhat mixed up so be patient.

Drastic difference in depth.

The answer to both questions is here on these maps.

everything looks above board regarding depths

if it was the other way around that might be a concern.

I am fairly sure these are all the same quake - even though the NZ lat/lon are a bit different. What do you reckon muzzy?

I reckon USGS/NEIC/EMSC got it wrong, thats the Ngongotaha Dome, Rotorua quake.
They were 43km out, to the south.
The main reason I think Geonet were right is that there was an aftershock the next day at the same Genet location
3449914, -38.12368, 176.16045, 2011/1/19 6:12:18, 143, 3.655, W of Ngongotaha cone, Rotorua, Waikato, Ngongotaha Aftershock
As far as NZ goes I always take the Geonet location, so many times the NEIC location is way off.
I base that on previous results over a period of time, just one example of many is late last years Kaituna quake, was located by NEIC as on the other side of the Wairarapa valley from where it actually was, again a distance of approx 40km, to the east, and again the Geonet location was proved correct based on where the aftershocks were located under Mt. Dagg.
The locals may struggle with the magnitudes but generally speaking they get the locations right, I have never seen a relocation of any Geonet located events where the revision is more than 1km out from the original.

BTW I'm just processing yesterdays results and they have a couple of 4's in Cook Strait near me early this morning as well, I didn't feel them. They look like they were 1 second and 16km apart

edit: theres an outside chance it may be an error though, Long Holiday Weekend here, probably a skeleton staff on. yesterdays results a bit sparce, only 13 quakes, the biggest a 3.249ML

Do you know if the Nevada quakes are in a populated area? A couple there that could definitely be felt if not in the desert. Do you think these quakes could be preliminary to a larger one?

Luning is an Unincorporated Town in Mineral County, Nevada, in the United States. It is often listed as a ghost town. The population of Luning, Nevada, as of 2005 is 87.[1] The town ZIP Code of Luning is 89420.


I do not see any evidence of geotheramal activity here or fracking, not to say this is not happening in a nearby location that I have not come across yet. We are though close to the Long Valley Caldera - do I think there is a realtion - no, but, there are many faults in the area. One would ponder though as to why it is a ghost town.

I don't know anything about earthquakes but I did notice that the quakes today are by Hawthorne Army Depot....they keep ammunition there. They also do geothermal exploration(I don't know anything about that either
) . Would this geothermal exploration cause some kind of activity....or maybe ammunition exploding?? Probably way off but just thought I'd throw it out there.

The link has a map of where they have drilled(?) for the geothermal exploration. They are right in the area of where the quake activity is.
