USGS have it as 6.0, EMSC still have 5.9

If Etna blows it won't be anything abnormal, its been erupting continiously since 1500 BC

compare the Timeline vs Mag of the Van quake with Christchurchs (smaller 7.1) last year, very similar aftershock rollout, although admittedly Vans aftershocks are a bit quicker coming (perhaps becasue of being 2 magnitude decimal points bigger)
2 decimal points of magnitude bigger doubles the amount of energy released
7.3 = 1,344,028.0 tonnes of TNT
7.1 = 673,609.7 tonnes of TNT

Van 9hrs


Christchurch 24hrs

Yes I know. The Turkish value seem to all be way under USGS. Have not got my head round that one yet, except that they are almost certainly on ML so on the big one that would have been beyond the saturation point.

By the way I was going to do an hourly energy but EMSC is busy adding quakes from earlier.

I am hoping that the 6.0/5.2/5.9/5.8 or whateva is the main aftershock after which it will begin to settle.

Just looked again. USGS is actually saying 6.0 Mw as are EMSC now.

I only just got EMSC to open after 3hrs, just been getting a blank page, now there are 4 pages of events

I won't even attempt to compare EMSC to KOERI, in the past I have seen them post what appeared to be identical quakes of both the KOERI and the Greek Observatory of Athens time wise, but totally different locations.

That 6.0, 5.7, @ 23.10.2011 23:45:34 fits in with the "one magnitude less" aftershock sequence theory.
Came up quick though

Yes I posted in the Turkey thread that I thought that one was the aftershock that fitted the rule (bearing in mind the rule does not work for megaquakes)

What is bugging me is STILL no phase data on the main shock. Why?

I know PuterMan and I had a bit of a giggle a couple of pages back about the antipode map (page 318). OK, the Kermadec EQ I said could have had an effect on El Hierro....It turns out it was East of El Hierro....Algeria to be precise! So I have just done the same for Van and the antipode puts it East of North Island NZ. So I know where I am trying to go with this but if Kermadec ends up in Algeria, How can Van.....across the other side of the Med put it East of NZ? It's getting late and maybe I am just fumbling at nothing.

Well basically as I understand it the auntypodes is the 180 minus the longness and the opposite of the broadness or latitude. I think I need a computer program because trying to get that antipodes map on the right spot is a nightmare!

I will work on it.

The theory of the antipodes is not unrealistic as a bunch of seismic waves to go through the earth but I think they would be spread out too far the opposite side.

It is a proven fact with meteorite (big) impacts I believe.

The aunties of the Turkish quake is a lovely unspoilt spot in the middle of the South Pacific. Can say I want to visit however!

I did this Van graph showing Time versus Energy Released Mag 3 upwards (its a couple of hours out of date now)
thumbnail


I adapted the graph I use for NZ, but had to fiddle with it a bit to get 104 events to fit.
Shows (me anyway) how insignificant those piddly 3's are and the 4's barely show as well, compared to the Mag 7.3 (1.3million tonnes of TNT), which is cropped on the graph anyway.

Eerie quietness considering - (insert Lurch Adam's, low level shaking head hhhmmmmm here) - really.

Keep safe tonight/today folk's - and say a prayer of choice for the victims of today's quake and the one's who are still waiting to be rescued from under rubble. May the powers that be, keep them warm, hopes high, and white light and will to survive!

BTW where did that German satilitte land? hmm - - maybe why data is being with held no?

p.s. There are a few dating sites on the web, if ya all would like me to send you a few links so you can carry on - let me know - no offence of course - just sayin - shakes head again

Playing around with the hemisphere map on the USGS site yields an oddness my brain picked out that probably means absolutely nothing:



The direct line between these two 7ish quakes crosses the equatorial plane very close to the midpoint between these two quakes as represented by the meridian which is perpendicular to the equator in the image shown above.

That interactive Map on page 323 has been updated with 6.6ML replaced with 7.3Mw and an additional 146 aftershocks (total to 2011.10.24 4:11:40 (17hours) is 248

A defunct German research satellite plummeted to earth at speeds of up to 280mph last night and crashed somewhere in Southeast Asia, a scientist said, but its exact whereabouts remain a mystery.

The Chinese will have a copy version within a few weeks.

Re the rest of your post.
More water with it perhaps?

Maybe an object that weighs over a ton, orbiting our planet for so long then entering our atmosphere and crashing could cause an earthquake. I mean if people believe the moon causes earthquakes then maybe this could also?
It's late sorry if I'm being silly! You guys really do keep me informed! Thank you all for working on this awesome thread!

I just re-read this.


So I know where I am trying to go with this but if Kermadec ends up in Algeria, How can Van.....across the other side of the Med put it East of NZ?


And where exactly is Kermedec? NE of NZ! It was late, I will grant you that especially as I did not see the context of the post until this morning.

ETA: Maybe this will help
