Wonder Japan+aftershocks=energy,turkey+aftershocks=energy,Japan how many aftershocks,turkey till now how many aftershocks?


You can't compare a 9.1 with a 7.1 regarding aftershocks, in fact numbers count for nothing when it comes to aftershocks, its all about "quality" (size).

If you are comparing quakes and aftershock sequences you at least have to start with the same sized mainshock, and also set a comparable timeline..

I did my best to compare 4 quakes of about the same size, and chose 72 hours as the timeline, and you can see from the Energy Released ( text above each graph) that number of a/s mean nothing i.e. look at Baja, 2046 aftershocks, but out of all four quakes the least released aftershock energy, because they were so small. Baja didn't have any Mag 5's so that ruined what looks like a monster aftershock sequence.

All up the Baja wins, but only because it was a Mag 7.2 Mainshock.
Its all in the mainshock, thats why we tustle over them here just after they happen, one decimal point either way and the power ( energy released) is reduced/increased by up to 30%
eg.
7.0 476,879 tonnes of TNT
7.1 673,610 tonnes of TNT
7.2 951,499 tonnes of TNT

Heres the Graph of four similar sized earthquakes, on land, comparing the aftershock sequences, Van, Baja, Darfield and Inangahua

Intially I downloaded USGS NIEC data 90km radius circular search for Baja 90km but the minimum mag was 2.7 and about half as many events so went to ANSS.
Also ran Haiti 7.0 through both ANSS and USGS NEIC , max number of events I got was 68

Scientific American have an interesting blog on Van tectonics. I started reading it, then decided it was way to complex for my tired little brain. I put the pic of the fault lines up on the tv screen but it's still hard to define.

Good morning Peeps.

Turkey count of numbers. Yesterday was fewer quakes so this looks as if it is following a normal shock/aftershock pattern.



And the energy

Interesting. Using your parameters I got a listing form my database, which is effectively any quakes issued over a 7 day period.

The number of lines returned was 1600 which mean 400+ quakes have been added to ANSS after the 7 day period!


number of a/s mean nothing


As I steadfastly maintain, numbers do not matter. The only thing that matters is the energy release. I think that one of the problems is that people do not have a concept of the energy so you will no doubt have notice that for public display I have moved over to TNT as at least people have some idea of what that is. For most a petajoule

Not going to belabour this Robin but I think you missed the point. One should not apply any such epithets to mental illness.

A crazy amount of aftershocks has no association with mental illness. The word crazy has no association with mental illness as far as I am concerned.

Nice work man,wonder why intense activity between September and March,could be the gravitational attraction between the planets and sun or the intense changes of the temperature between the surface,plates and magma?or both...But let's watch this movie named"West Coast"!!!

Speaking of West Coast. I thought of her this morning as I saw the two Earthquakes from Oklahoma this morning. If I remember correctly her attention was focused on that state however I cannot remember why (mind must be getting old).

Are you serious? You started a thread where you predict a possible mag 8.3 quake for Greece during the following week from the Turkey quake -- based on your "calculation" -- and now you say you don't know what the USGS is?
The US Geological Survey?

I was having a gentle dig.
He even posted a link to a USGS-hosted seismogram here in his own thread two days ago, so I am sincerely hoping that his question was in jest.

Anyhow, I added a smiley in to my post so he knows I'm responding to what I suspect is a little joke on his part.

That is a lot of North Pacific Ocean Eq's Dalke!! Is all of them from today and you are saying USGS doesn't have them listed? They don't .....I just checked but neither does the other link from EMSC. I am confused.

Yes, as Zenius says, that list for the mystery North Pacific 5.8 (??) quake is all over the place. The EMSC has plenty of data on it but I think they're having trouble pinning down the precise location and magnitude. Could be a while before it gets put on the official list -- assuming, of course, that it was actually a quake and not something else.

There are other energy sources that could generate a strong enough trace to register on seismos in that mag range, after all. They're just rather rare.

Oh, yes, sorry forgot....aussie humour.

It's not just the energy output, but also the long/lat coordinates they can't seem to agree on.
Be careful, Mike, now you'll get all the conspiracy nuts going on about what caused the trace...

Hi MamaJ,

apparently, all that data is different possible locations/times/mags for one quake event. This is probably why it's not made it onto the official lists and maps yet. They have to work out the most precise time, location and magnitude.

It's an unusual location (relatively) and that could be adding to the issue.
