I checked on the Google map, and looks like it has some strange areas around it that look alot like the "fracking spots" here in Arkansas.

I really hope thats not what`s going on there.

It showed up really well on my local GEE and the 2 Arkansas webicorders.... got my attention right away!

Before my brain stopped functioning, I checked the maps on Colorado. To the south/south/west, there is mining. I found something to the southeast and it looks like farming, but I'm not sure. To the west there looks to be something resembling fracking pads. But there's no ponds. It may be conventional drilling. Not sure. Before I could double check, I had had enough searching.

I suppose I stopped searching because I was anxious. There's something weird about the quake and I can't put my finger on it. Maybe Muzzy and Puterman can look at the wave patterns and see if there's nothing to it. I didn't even look at local siesmos. I could see it on Arkansas and Yellostone. Then I just guage where it is from those two points. The technical stuff I just read on the USGS and then get Muzzman and Puterman's take on the math. I don't bother to look at any other listing besides USGS. I reluctantly trust there reporting. And it gives me enough information. I've read too many people complaining about other sites. And I've tried them myself. Obviously they suck, because I can't become interested and they fade from memory really quickly. When I've found a good source, I EDIT out all the redundant ones.

The USGS is really good at posting quakes quickly. It's easy to navigate. And unless your into the math like our two chartsters, all you should concern yourself with is finding out how big it is, small medium and large, and mega, which would be Japan, Banda Aceh. And Chile, 8.8M. Unless a quake reaches 7,7 +, it's just a large quake and isn't going to be out of the norm. Most countries shake off quakes of 7.2 without much trouble. (Exception- Haiti)

Of course you can't forget depth. The first Kiwi big quake was less destructive than the second despite the fact that it was larger than the second. Depth and location had much to do with the seriousness of that disaster.

Mid-continental quakes are different. Those even with magnitude 6+ can be destructive and considered a large quake. Too many reasons for this to explain. They are also rarer than quakes inland.

Oh, almost forgot. There is one exception that ticks me off about the USGS. It's Yellowstone. Their still delaying the mother f-------- quakes. I complained like a squeaky wheel. I thought they said they were going to post them sooner. But. Whatever. I can see the damn things on the graphs and I know the magnitudes and locations. So, I guess I don't need the list. It's just nice to cross reference to make sure you're on the mark and be able to judge your findings in a timely matter. Sorry. Pet Peeve. Oh, Arkansas has delays as well. Apparently, the person in charge, if their asleep, won't be posting it til morning.

Otherwise, you can't really get better than USGS on the majority of stuff and their basically on the mark. The tech crew will differ with some of that. But then sometimes I won't check USGS first, I check here and someone has already posted info. And then the tech boys, their men, post the varying parameters according the varying "offical" sources.

Oh, while I'm bathering. I may as well pitch my newest genius idea to Muzzy and Putes. You need to harmonize all the differing systems and make an analgoirthinm. I'm laughing at the spelling attempt I just made. I put no effort or care into it. Anyway, make an open source program to combine all the government bodies putting out data and find a clear way to denote the magnitude. Someone's got to do it. So, it may as well be you.

Then you crunch their numbers, and post quakes like the USGS. But, also include press reports and you can even have a witness section where people can "testify". You might not want something You Tube posters telling you that they felt something when they didn't. But you can train earthquake spotters. Just like trained tornado spotters. The register and you know they're not into the project just to play games and troll.

I've said enough. So much for editing myself. It's my word for the week.
Edit.

Ya, to add. That Colorado quake really freaked me out. It shouldn't have. It unnerved me. That doesn't mean much either. I am crazy. I'm sure it's because it's an mid-continental quake that it's throwing me.

Maybe a big meth lab blew up.

I think thatts another one, not the earlier 4.8


4.6 2011/08/22 23:30:20 37.050 -104.774 5.0 COLORADO
3.0 2011/08/23 02:48:52 37.056 -104.726 5.0 COLORADO
5.3 2011/08/23 05:46:19 37.070 -104.700 4.0 COLORADO


wouldn't that be the biggest quake on the continent this year ?( apart from Alaska or Gulf of California (which is really Mexico))

easily the biggest, almost double anything in a year...
from my vague memory...

and i note the MAG has changed again, to 5.3...

Felt this one.
Sitting at the desk doing real work, sudden sidways shift then a short single sharp jolt.
Its not on Geonet yet, I filled out a report, but it was after business hours, so will be interesting to see if it comes up on the list in the morning
Definetly felt it here.


REF:3566771
LAT/LONG: -40.85451, 175.18016
UTC: 2011/8/22 21:29:15
NZST: 2011/8/23 9:29:15
DEPTH: 36km
MAG: 3.252ML
LOCATION: 384 Mangaone North Rd, Hautere 5581
Reported as Felt: Yes


Just checked the NZ Faults Database, it was on the Gibbs Fault behind the hills we can see from our front window, 17.5km away.

Then this quake should generate a few pages of discussion


heres a starter.
Investigation of swarm of earthquakes occurred near Trinidad, Colorado 2001

In recent years, a large volume of excess water that is produced in conjunction with coal-bed methane gas production has been returned to the subsurface in fluid disposal wells in the area of the earthquake swarm. Because of the proximity of these disposal wells to the earthquakes, local residents and officials are concerned that the fluid disposal might have triggered the earthquakes. We have evaluated the characteristics of the seismicity using criteria proposed by Davis and Frohlich (1993) as diagnostic of seismicity induced by fluid injection. We conclude that the characteristics of the seismicity and the fluid disposal process do not constitute strong evidence that the seismicity is induced by the fluid disposal, though they do not rule out this possibility.

I know I don't normally produce a PDF package for quakes under 6.0, but will be creating a page for significant earthquakes and will create PDF package for this one this evening. (Busy the rest of today)

I think this one is unusual so worth a closer look.

(Sunda strait PDF package tonight as well)

Aargh! Sorry, forgot to say - nice find that muzzy!

Just a quick addition: If someone is 'vestigating see what changed in 2001

Circular search - all years - 60km radius of the 5.3

I dont usually watch earth quakes but this one in Colorado got my attention because its rare.

WOW! So when I went to bed last night I wondered if Colorado would get hit with a bigger one and of course BINGO...I see they did this morning. I am so glad no one was hurt. Had that happened in my neck of the woods here in TN. I am not so sure we would have been that lucky.

I am now of course wondering what this means (if anything) for the United States. Will this Colorado quake produce an even bigger one in the area or will it perhaps set another off?

I saw one of the posters mention methane deposits and now the speculation does lead me to believe that had to be the cause of the Colorado Quake..... I mean....REALLY? We are depositing gas into our Earth? Ha! Does that not seem stupid??? Or ....is it just me??? Tell me....lol.....I can handle the truth!

Hi Karen'
"On your little song there, is it Pop Goes the Weasel ? "
Nope! But very close, it almost fits doesn't it!
If your British you should get it with this clue....Billy Connolly recons it should be the British National Anthem, as there are no words, and everybody knows it!
