I'm sure these is left over from Fiji, but how many times are they going to go around. folkworm.ceri.memphis.edu...

a chunk of the Pacific Plate which in the past few days has been shifting NW rapidly ( 5.5, 6.0, 5.5) has just fallen off into the mantle.

so say the subduction theorists

lol, It has fallen so far that it's about to hit the core

Get ready for "The Core"

Hmm, I'd be interested to know how they came to that conclusion. Thanks Muzzy. (link?)

There does seem to be a lot of energy release in the past 24 hours or so. The next 24 hours will be interesting...will it continue or quiet down I wonder?

that was interesting, al those terms

I had to laugh when I read this




recumbent fold
When an anitcleine or a syncleine is pooshed so that the axis plane passes through the fold horizontaly


pooshed -


and we need an additional L for horizontaly

Clustering.

In the last 24 hours, we've had a few sizable quakes. Two of them were within 7 minutes of each other. Cuba was in that cluster, but got downgraded. For Cuba, a 5 is something and not nothing.

You can't make much of these quakes, but it's something to note. And when I make that mental note, I realized the last clustering series of quakes in the mid-western US are quieting. As I write, there was nothing on the radar at the moment.

Worldwide quakes increase and seem clustered. At the same time as the Eastern US settles down.
Coincidence? Or relationship?

Whatever the real answer, I'm convinced of clustering and a interrelationship on worldwide, and on a region basis. For whatever the reasons.

I won't even mention the moon. I noticed up there of course. I think the moon's greatest influence is when earth is at perihelion. Muzzy I'm glad you are taking note of the moon. You are more faithful than I and I'm the one convinced of the idea, and you are the skeptic. Given that I am a believer, even I can't say the moon was a direct trigger. But it's damn interesting to note.

I just got a notice that Utah had a 3.0 but it's not showing and now it goes off again with the Sandwich Islands getting a 5.1 and neither of them are showing up as just happening. Strange?????

No I didn't feel it, but my browser shook. LOL!!!

So you got it there, I guess I need to start checking my cache too.

No point in checking your cache for earthquakes that have been deleted!
That deep 7.3 popped off a few deletions I guess. I don't see Utah - never made it to the 7 day list it seems but EMSC had Switzerland 4.1

Does not mean anything unless you are an Italian Prof with an agenda. (He may have been a Doctor - a scientist anyway)

It happened last year as well and he created a stink saying the Gulf stream would stop etc etc doom doom doom, but guess what? It didn't. Now fancy that!!

I think you missed this one, just before the Honshu quake and while the USA was playing Russia in the RWC.
I went to bed without checking USGS

When the Chilean earthquake occurred in 1960, seismographs recorded seismic waves that traveled all around the Earth. These seismic waves shook the entire earth for many days! This phenomenon is called the free oscillation of the Earth.


Earthquake facts: No 35

For eva ( well the modern version of for eva - about a couple of days)

Hello All. I've been lurking in the Fragile Planet forum for a while, but this "phantom/disappearring" quake has spurred me to become a member.

I checked the theoretical p-wave travel times for the Fiji 7.3 quake 19:31:03 UTC , and it showed approximately 11-12 minutes to northern California. That would be about 19:42:00, same as the USGS reported, albeit, briefly, for the Shasta area quake.
Here is a seismogram from about 75km south of the Mt. Shasta area quake. Lassen Seismo

So I'm guessing the instrumentation was just tricked into thinking it had its own quake, and that is why USGS deleted it? Deleted

Wouldn't the Fiji quake's waves have had to "bump" into something at that location (76.8 km deep), to signal a quake? And if it did "bump" into something, could it have been a magma chamber? If I remember my geology 101, S-waves can't travel through liquid. (I could have this last part wrong, wrong--my memory is becoming wonky)

I'm just learning, so please feel free to set me straight.

Well actually they do travel through melt and partial melt, but they slow down. For this reason they are called "low velocity zones." They play a big part in seismic tomography mapping, where they use seismic waves, and even artificial explosions to map wave velocities through different rock strata. This helps them make educated guesses about what's down there near subduction zones, volcanoes, and other places.

And btw, welcome to ATS my friend. Nice to see you so far along, checking wave arrival times.


And here, for your efforts, have your first star on me!

As to deleted events, I don't really see any conspiracy in it myself. And that's coming from an avid conspiracy theorist.


With all the auto notification going on in seismic software these days, there are continual errors. It just goes with the territory, imo. Which is why I prefer to monitor seismic stations directly using GEE.

I love learning--Thank you so much for the refresher on low velocity zones. I had a sinking feeling I didn't have that concept quite right. And thank you for the star. (wonders to herself, "What are stars?"--hehe)
