I saw that on the USGS map and my heart started racing as the square looked a lot bigger on the thumbnail on the main page.

That's not an unusual site for a quake, how long has it been since one of comparable magnitude has occurred on this segment of the fault?

I believe that quake to be smaller than a 5.9 after pulling both the seismic waveforms in GEE from TA network stations in Oregon, and also from the phase data of that quake here:
neic.usgs.gov...

Another one I will not be surprised to see cut way back in magnitude in the next hours or days. Waveforms and amplitude looked more like 4.9 to 5.3 to me. See you in seven days, Puterman.


ETA: And yup. USGS just downgraded the 5.9 to a 5.3. Oh well, at least we didn't have to wait seven days. Sorry, PM our date is cancelled.

As usual, TrueAmerican, you are correct

Revised to 5.3

Here's what I've observed the last few days over the lunar cycle regarding worldwide earthquakes.

As the moon entered its full moon phase, and as it reached apogee, things kinda stopped. The 11th was a moderate day, with nothing above 5.7M. Then yesterday, at the moon's peak, activity was very quiet. So, the moon did something. Which was cause nothing to happen. Because, nothing is something.


Then the maximum gravitational pull is reach. Things freeze. The activity starts after the gravity starts to let go. And what do we have. A 6+, followed by a sizable one off Oregon.

There is a lag to everything. For example the weather. In the North, the sun maximum is June. But that's not the hottest period. Because there's a lag. The effect doesn't happen at the "stroke of midnight".

I'm sorry. I'm not at my best. Listen to this radio program and maybe you'll be able to figure out what I'm trying to get at. Or it's the program on Jupiter. I don't know. It's in the archive somewhere. My point I mean.

Morning Mr Marks sir,
I am with you on the moon!
Your description made me think of a rubber band. Approaching a Full Moon, the rubber band gets stretched until it reaches it's full taughtness, then the day or so after PING the rubber band is released and sent hurtling towards the Earth. The strength of that 'energy' impact is determined by the size of the rubber band!

Just my way of looking at the moon's cyclical impact on Earth energies!

I don't like commenting unless it's a particular network I'm watching. But, it looks like microseismic noise. Most probably from the hurricanes down in Mexico. Then again, some of them may be wind. At Yellowstone, some stations may not have wind, but others do. That's because it's mountainous and there are plains. You have updraft and wind corridors. So, even if there's only a slight breeze recorded by a weather station, there may be an area where there is gusts.

I was hoping Puterman or someone else would answer you first with a more technical explanation Regardless, I'm sure there not earthquakes or magma moving.


Thanks for your reply Robin. Yes, there are plenty of corridors for wind in the Klamath/Coast Ranges, lol. The topography looks like a crumpled piece of paper that one has tried to flatten back out.
I was leaning toward a small, slow creep of the Gorda plate -- but honestly, I had no clue.

Now that the M5.3 has hit on the north side of the Blanco fracture, maybe I was seeing something related?

Please pardon my ignorance.

But why is this Oregon quake void of aftershocks?

Yeah...why is it void of 'aftershocks'? Weird. But didn't we have something similar with another quake just last week......where are our teachers when we need them!

That location off the coast in Oregon is quite an active area. Here you can look at the Historical Seismicity of the area.

Be Well.

You may have a point Robin, I'll look into the lag theory a bit more in the coming rainy days, 2011 has been a hard year to analyse for New Zealand in particular, we have a Mag 4 just about every day so I'll have to just look at Mag 5's.
There does seem quite a few 5s that happened this year 3 days after one of the 4 moon phases, but there were also many that happened right in the middle of nothing.
Maybe someone else can see something that I can't in this graph I've been running all year.

Nothing if you try zooming in and ignore the impossibly large dots the have for a 3.9!!

It just doing what that area does and did this time in 2010 and in May 2009.

Superb charts there muzzy


I have to say that as far as I can see there is no good correlation that can be determined as being anything other than random.

I am with you on the moon!


This explains much
Dark side perhaps!


Whilst there appears to be no direct correlation I do have the feeling that such a large body - (the Moon
) - should have an effect.
