Interesting that this shows what I assume are three different defaults, or is this just rounding. Maybe.

Hello knowledgable quake watchers

I was wondering if anyone else thought the lack of aftershocks from the 20 Oct 2011, m4.8 Texas earthquake was strange?
I searched for a similiar quake to compare and found this mid Texas EQ from September:

y/m/d h:m:s deg deg km

Source of above data

This Rotan series was smaller magnitude, yet still had aftershocks. Does it sometimes happen that a small/moderate quake, in a relatively stable continental area, occurs as a one-off event? Just curious. It's only been 4 days--maybe there is more on the way?

Basically it is my impression that you get few if any aftershocks from an injection/fracking induced earthquake, but Robin may have info on that score.

I think you are possibly misunderstanding me.

What I was asking was are the percentages based on magnitudes or released energy because it would need to be released energy to be relevant I feel. Since you have not linked your source for those figures I can't go look see for myself.

Thanks for your reply PM--I'm curious to read what Robin thinks.
Diamondsmith, I read your link--thanks for that.
I whole-heartedly agree that fluid injection causes quakes--is that what you wanted me to get? That document states that Mag 4+ injection-induced quakes in Colorado were followed by thousands of small tremors.
I haven't seen any reported aftershocks from this past Thursday's Mag 4.8 in Texas. Maybe there have been microseisms, that just aren't reported. I can't seem to find a close station to monitor.

I have a love-hate relationship with the concept of foreshock, mainshock, and aftershock.
"How soon is now?" The Texas earthquake isn't acting normal because it's not. It's artificial. Synthesized. So, it's characteristics are abnormal. There are no plates grinding past each other. There is no ancient fault groaning because it's being squeezed. It is either a new crack, or it is an ancient fault that's been reawakened. There could be no aftershocks because it was a total rupture. Like a balloon popping. One big bang.

Please turn down the volume on your computer. I am now screaming. I will not put on the Caps Lock. But know that I am hysterical and screaming at the top of my soul. Warning. When excited, I will use profanity.

Mother, umm, mother ma. Fracking. Rudd Muckers. I love you all.

It is hard for me to focus on Texas, Oklahoma, etc. I am convinced that fracking and injection are the cause. But that's not the epicenter. That's not where the real danger lies.

There has been two recent quakes in Arkansas. So what right? They've had an average of two a day for the last few weeks. And so what. They're a little north of the "main faultline" As Scott Ausbrook states, the new quakes, which are leftovers- aftershocks- from the old swarm which was caused by injections, they are at the northern tip of the 10 mile long fault. Now I'm giggling. Because I'm manical. If I don't laugh- I cry. Crying hurts my head. Then I'll get a migraine.

These two newest aftershocks are even further north. Shut up robin. So what?

The fault is longer than thought. It is not 10 miles long. It is 15 miles long. Longer by one third. Like the "new-ancient fault" found near Marrianna, I suspect the maxium of the Arkansas manmade fault is 7M.

So. So What>>?>?? So muther fruck what. sososososososoososoosoososoosoososooso

That means the citizens of Arkansas are sitting on a mid-continental fault which has the capacity of prodcuing a 7M earthquake. And.............. Th

They are fracking right on top of it. Connect the dots. It's really child's play. There is no doubt about what's going to happen.

Now. I'm shaking. Now I'm manic. Now i'm me.

No advice. That's my new request. I'm having a meltdown. But I'm damned strong and damned stubborn. I know this rant will mystify you if nothing else. Don't worry. Be happey,. Dododododoooodoodoodododododododododddoo

I am Ok.

You crack me up (pun intended)

I'm sorry to say I love watching you talk yourself out of having a melt down.

This is serious and I know your heart is in it 100%. Being powerless over fracking can be a hell, especially when you know in your heart it is not only wrong, but the implications are HUGE!

How often does this happen?

You talking 'bout the question mark? California automatically posts quakes. It happens frequently.

reply to post by jadedANDcynical

Hi J&C,

yes -- as Robin says, it happens quite often. I often have the USGS map just set to "worldwide" and when I see one of the little "crossed squares" come up I click on it then take a guess at what the number will be. This time I guessed a 2.5. I wuz ronng... I came in at a 2.2.

Seems to me that it mainly happens with little quakes, though. I am not sure why that is.

Robin, forgive me for putting your name in such bright color but wanted to be better sure you might see this. Hope that makes modicums of sense.

I'm concerned about the Gulf of Mexico (GOM). I recall that occasionally there are quakes there that get up around a mag 5.0 but usually few or no aftershocks from them. (Someone please correct me if wrong. Not having good day for personal reasons and I might sound a bit odd.)

Any thoughts why that might be? I ask because I'm thinking of possible connections between GOM seismic activity and the southern US states, perhaps even up into the regions closer to the NMZ.

And please, anyone can respond. I dont mind. Just it worries me, you see. The GOM. I don't like what I think about it. Sorry. I'll shuddup now.

Hello Mike,
In searching for rare Gulf of Mexico quakes I found only this ?

The magnitude 6.0 temblor, centered about 330 miles (530 kilometers) southeast of New Orleans, Louisiana, occurred at 8:56 a.m. local time (map of Louisiana). It was felt in parts of Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi.

Not sure if it will help much. Hope you feel better soon.
