Actually this is a fairly common magnitude for the area.

Take a look at this search on USGS

ETA: And no there have been 4.5s, 4.3s - a few 3.9s 3.8s. All in that list.


You may want to try that with a smaller radius. I picked 100 because 'Merca is a big place, but I have no idea how that relates to Nevada.

Just to make it a tad easier here are 50 and 25 km radius

50 km radius

25 km radius

Bigger ones still in there at 25 km radius.

I wanna do it!!!!


I see they upgraded it to a 3.9

It's probably just me, but I find it strange that the last 5 EQ's reported on EMSC are all at 10km.
No doubt PuterMan can prove there have been a series like this before......please don't.....just tell me!

When I first started watching quakes, I noticed the same thing about the 10km depths. But then someone told me that it's a default setting. So, the quakes are not all precisely at 10km.

Here's an explaination of depth values.

"The depth where the earthquake begins to rupture. This depth may be relative to mean sea-level or the average elevation of the seismic stations which provided arrival-time data for the earthquake location. The choice of reference depth is dependent on the method used to locate the earthquake. Sometimes when depth is poorly constrained by available seismic data, the location program will set the depth at a fixed value. For example, 33 km is often used as a default depth for earthquakes determined to be shallow, but whose depth is not satisfactorily determined by the data, whereas default depths of 5 or 10 km are often used in mid-continental areas and on mid-ocean ridges since earthquakes in these areas are usually shallower than 33 km. "

Thank you for that. I also read somewhere that we shouldn't worry about EQ's that are more than 10km...can't remember if it was because of tectonic or magma movement....think it was tectonic.

You are right, but look when they put it on the list, after the 5.36 observation point
Reception Time 2011-08-18 05:56 UTC
on the Scientific Data page

Just seemed unusual, probably wasn't, I don't often check the lists more than once a day, but in this case did it 3 times during the day and noticed the quiet period, especially on USGS, so checked the others too.

After the lag


Magnitude mb 5.0
Region GEORGIA (SAK'ART'VELO)
Date time 2011-08-18 11:57:43.0 UTC
Location 42.63 N ; 42.92 E

13 km E Tsageri (pop 2,163 ; local time 16:57:43.5 2011-08-18)


USGS had 5.1mb for this one FWIW

earthquake.usgs.gov...

Note USGS dropped from 6.5

We have three different magnitudes and three different depths.

I declare this to be a 6.5 BS at 1.75 million inches

Consistency is NOT one of USGS best traits. Whereas quakes are normally determined in Mw, in this instance they have chosen Mb


mb = 6.3 (474) ML = 6.0 ( 10) mblg = 5.4 ( 13) md = 0.0 ( 0) MS = 5.9 (399)


But note that ML is 6.0 and MS (closest equivalent to Mw) is 5.9.

Now unless JMO is using MJ which is it's own and a scale I don't have the equivalent for (I think it is ML) then I think they are emitting an aroma of Pork Pie.

Quite how EMSC can get such a different mb figure to USGS I am not sure. Watch it change!

Sheesh, seismologists!!

ETA: Useful bit of information. Comparing the EMSC and USGS phase data the magnitude figure in the USGS data, for which the scale is not stated, it seems the USGS are mb as they match the EMSC, which are stated as mb.

4.5 is o.k. It's alarming, you get an adrenalin rush, but even at that depth ( we've had plenty of practice :/) it's not a "duck under the desk" sort of quake.

Damn, I wish I didn't know that.
