Earthquakes in Hawai`i are closely linked to volcanism. They are an important part of the island-building processes that have shaped the Island of Hawai`i and the other Hawaiian Islands. Thousands of earthquakes occur every year beneath the Island of Hawai`i.

Eruptions and magma movement within the presently active volcanoes (Kilauea, Mauna Loa and Lo`ihi) are usually accompanied by numerous small earthquakes. They originate in regions of magma storage or along the paths that magma follows as it rises and moves prior to eruption. These are loosely termed volcanic earthquakes.

Many other earthquakes, including the largest ones, occur in areas of structural weakness at the base of Hawai`i's volcanoes or deep within the Earth's crust beneath the island. These are referred to as tectonic earthquakes. In the past 150 years, several strong tectonic earthquakes (magnitude 6 to 8) caused extensive damage to roads, buildings, and homes, triggered local tsunami, and resulted in loss of life. The most destructive earthquake in Hawai`i's history occurred on April 2, 1868, when 81 people lost their lives. With a magnitude of 7.9 and a maximum intensity of XII, this destructive earthquake destroyed more than a hundred homes and generated a 15-m high tsunami along Kilauea's south coast.

The 4.5 was on the northwest side of the big island. Might be tectonic, seeing as there are clearly aftershocks.

Seems that the Hawaii quakes are getting some attention:

I'm not sure that I agree with you there True. There have been 23 small quakes since then and in quick succession....I think it's harmonic. Magma on the move. Look at where it started and where it is now.

Well that's fine, but considering the depth of these quakes, all at ~ 17km, and the presence of aftershocks from a main shock, I am sticking with tectonic. It appears a small section of a fault moved, with accompanying aftershocks. This happened in the Mauna Kea volcanic field, which is supposedly dormant:

en.wikipedia.org...

I checked the epicenters, which are all very close, and very well constrained by multiple stations, so the error ellipse is very small (+ or - .9 km). I have expanded monitoring to include some Hawaii Volcano Observatory stations (EHZ). Things appear to have subsided for the moment. I wouldn't go trumpeting the end of the world just yet.

no...no trumpets here...not even a piccolo...lol...but if there's one place where the magma moves around a lot, it's Hawaii. And even when it does, doesn't mean a volcano is imminent. This just looks so different than other swarms.

Amplitude Reference (AR) Hawaii

AR 1: 3.3 about 150 microns/sec IU.POHA BHZ
AR 2: 4.5 about 2.2 mm/s IU.POHA BHZ- 4.5 about 9.5 mm/s at HV.WAID EHZ
AR 3: 2.5 about 300 micron/sec HV.WAID EHZ

From time to time I am going to post Amplitude References for a given area. This way when a new one happens in that area, GEE users can get an idea of the magnitude before it is reported. Note the different types of stations and their amplitudes though, cause it makes a difference. (See the 4.5 above and the difference in amplitude at BHZ and EHZ stations. Those stations are close to the same distance from epicenter of the 4.5.)

They just had another.....

I agree with TA that it appears more tectonic at the moment, given the depth. Time will tell. Interesting though.

Let me know when the number passes 2000 events


[color=2B65EC]Re-inflation of Mauna Loa's shallow magma storage reservoirs started immediately following the most recent eruption in 1984, then turned to deflation for almost a decade. In mid-2002, inflation started again, just after a brief swarm of deep long-period (LP) earthquakes. A more intense swarm of (more than? about?) 2,000 deep LP earthquakes occurred in late 2004, immediately preceding a dramatic increase in inflation rate. Inflation slowed again in 2006, ceased altogether in late 2009, and resumed slowly in late 2010.

Rising gradually to more than 4 km above sea level, Mauna Loa is the largest volcano on our planet. Its long submarine flanks descend to the sea floor an additional 5 km, and the sea floor in turn is depressed by Mauna Loa's great mass another 8 km. This makes the volcano's summit about 17 km (56,000 ft) above its base! The enormous volcano covers half of the Island of Hawai`i and by itself amounts to about 85 percent of all the other Hawaiian Islands combined.

Mauna Loa is among Earth's most active volcanoes, having erupted 33 times since its first well-documented historical eruption in 1843. Its most recent eruption was in 1984

Pretty shallow quake, that one. I expect there'll be a fair few "felt" reports coming in pdq...

By the way, much fracking round there?

WOW!


I was wondering that myself...will research to see if there is indeed fracking going on...does make you wonder! I am also wondering how often they have EQ's because I have not noticed any there in the last year and half.

The US has been too busy for me...eq wise that is. This is a conspiracy site so I will share a weird idea that just popped into my head. What IF the nations today can induce an EQ on another?
I know it sounds crazy but I remember an old video/speech from a politician talking about where we were going and this was mentioned. Controlling climate and the like....just thinking crazily out loud here.

I'm hoping that one of our members will have some data on previous quakes in that are. I also don't recall many there in the past few years but I'd like to see some data of their locations and mags.

Re other countries and ability to cause quakes, etc etc. Yes, that's been discussed here on ATS in some threads. I'm dubious about it as the energies involved would need to be pretty massive. Okay, it's theoretically possible I guess, but how they'd achieve such an effect without massively interfering with power transmission and communications infrastructures is beyond me.
