REVISED UP TO 5.6


Just a technical note: Not strictly revised. If you watch USGS and EMSC you will note that generally quakes are first posted as mb values. These are pretty much instant based on computer algorithms of the incoming p-wave. Once the s-wave has passed they then calculate an Mw value for the quake. Generally, but not always, USGS then changes to the Mv value so this quake appeared to go UP from 5.2 to 5.6 but actually there was no change. If you look at the phase data you can see it still shows as 5.2mb

Could there be another one coming?


Unlikely now I would say. This certainly sounds like a normal faulting movement and with the fore shock and main shock, and the historical record this is probably all over bar the aftershocks.

Fun Fact: 5.6 is the biggest in Oklahoma's history.


Maybe. and then again maybe not. The 1952 quake was almost certainly 5.5 ML so you would need to know the conversion to Mw. It is of course quite likely that this is the biggest as the 5.5 may well convert downwards. Sorry just me being boring about accuracy. It must be one of those days.

It's interesting this swarm in OK appears to be occurring in an area with no known Quaternary faults


The tectonic summary for the quake states


At well-studied plate boundaries like the San Andreas fault system in California, often scientists can determine the name of the specific fault that is responsible for an earthquake. In contrast, east of the Rocky Mountains this is rarely the case. All parts of this vast region are far from the nearest plate boundaries, which, for the U.S., are to the east in the center of the Atlantic Ocean, to the south in the Caribbean Sea, and to the west in California and offshore from Washington and Oregon. The region is laced with known faults but numerous smaller or deeply buried faults remain undetected.



But it might be the gas company's fault.

This is a huge study of basically the Wilzetta fault area.

On page 75 of the document you will find a map of the area under study - through which the Wilzetta fault runs down the middle - and you will see that the whole area either side of and on the fault is peppered with wells.

Sick? Yes may I be please!



We are aware of the fact the the use of geothermal energy and drilling for same leads to the incidence of earthquakes. In some areas, Iceland for example, there is evidence that these installations can trigger quite large earthquakes.

Now I find a document describing how scientists are seeking out fault lines to use for geothermal resources.

The document is entitled Active Fault Controls at High-Temperature Geothermal Sites: Prospecting for New Faults


we have developed a simple conceptual model in which Holocene age faults are inferred to be preferred conduits for thermal fluids moving upward from deep crustal depths. We have explored the wider application of this model by acquiring lowsun-angle aerial photography over basins with known geothermal potential in order to determine the level of unrecognized Holocene faults present in these basins. The results provide new insights into the distribution of recent crustal strain in these basins and how it may be a determining factor in resource occurrence.

The northern Pyramid Lake fault system was one of our principal study areas which provided direct evidence that unrecognized active faults are present in many of the geothermal resource areas. The San Emidio Valley, in particular, contains a broad zone of distributed extensional faulting that likely has contributed to the
occurrence of hydrothermal activity. These results suggest that prospecting for similar structural relations in other basins can serve as an important component in the exploration for new resources.


I leave you to work out what this infers.

Scientists!!!!!


Does anyone remember the closing scene in the film Spartacus? So should all scientists and bankers be treated.

Hey, geothermal is green! No nuclear waste, no obnoxios windmills, no need for acres of solar panels. It's perfect! So what if it levels a few nearby towns? And if the movement occurs farther away, there is always plausable deniability. Money talks...even when it makes the ground shake.

Good morning all! Well.....it looks as if OK is still cracka lackin. I am soooo glad the reports are all saying everyone is ok and there are no injuries. I am left to wonder what lurks around the corner though....a bigger one possibly?

So what caused the quakes BEFORE fracking - the largest prior to this was in 1952...

I want to see them have many aftershocks before my guard is let down. I am concerned a bigger one lurks. Also, I would like to know from Puterman ....would fracking cause such a big EQ to be felt in six different states? I am wondering if this is not caused by man but something the Earth has always done. In I think it was 1952 they had a big one of this mag and I don't think it was caused by fracking then. Who knows....I sure don't.

Maybe the 1952 wasn't caused by fracking.
But maybe it was caused by oil extraction. They were drilling in 1952.

The first production well was drilled and operating in 1896. Before Oklahoma was even a recognized state.
So, before 1952, they had sucked up lots of goo from the ground.
You are correct it could be natural. But, you can't rule out drilling and fracking.

Thanks for the information.....it is much appreciated. Yeah, who knows but it aint good, that is for sure. I await many more aftershocks...otherwise and I am going to be anxious.

The other night I watched the movie Catch-22. If you are unfamiliar, look it up. Simply, it is a story of the absurdity of war. And other things. For you that thrive on the New World Order, you'll see it's shadow as well.
But this is to only give you an idea where my mind's at lately. Oh, Spartatcus, I think they crucified him. What's my point? I'm just seeing so much lunacy, it's everywhere I look.

So. This morning I see a report on the Daily Beast that links back to CNN. The headline was catchy because it said that a road had buckled. So. I goes to the report and they make it real easy because they have a video to watch. So. I could be lazy if I wanted to be and not read. Wait. There's a commercial. Well, I'm not that adverse to reading, so, I I read while I waited. But the stupid commercial caught my eye despite my training to ignore advertisements. Oh, this is interesting I thought, the ad seemed to deal with energy. Oh brother. It was an ad for Conoco Phillips. Conoco Phillips is an energy company and they frack. Hmmm. Here I am, awaiting a report on an earthquake which has almost positively been caused by energy companies, and it's been brought to me by the kindly sponsership of the same mother frackers who are suspects in the crime. The propaganda is everywhere. It's right there even on PBS before the news. "We're Green" "love us despite the fact we murder and plunder."

I laughed. I shouldn't have. But I did. It's the law of Catch-22.

Possibly but then wouldn't Texas have a consistent show of quakes similar to Arkansas?

And also what other states are known for heavy drilling , Alaska?

Definitely something to ponder. I'm sure it's of no consequence to our nifty government.

Texas recently had a 4.8M. Drilling all around the epicenter. Here's a history of quakes in Texas.

earthquake.usgs.gov...

Alaska has earthquakes everyday. But it's on the ring of fire. Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Colorado, Wyoming, Ohio, and the UK are not. There is a common link. In all these places, they are either pumping stuff into- or out of- the ground. All around 5.6M Oklahoma earthquake, they're are injection wells.

Let's get our fingers wiggling and do some counting.

How many earthquakes were there in Oklahoma in the last year or so?

I don't know. But here's what was said in an AP report.

"Oklahoma typically has about 50 earthquakes a year, and 57 tornadoes, but a burst of quakes east of Oklahoma City has contributed to a sharp increase. Researchers said 1,047 quakes shook Oklahoma last year, prompting them to install seismographs in the area."

www.google.com...

So, the average is 50, and very few are felt. But, in 2009, the were 43 felt earthquakes. Since 1977, there have been 1800 earthquakes. I'm pretty sure they're not including the 1000 or so refered to over the last year. But whatever. It's obvious that there is a distinct increase in earthquakes in Oklahoma. Simple as that.

Why?
I think that's obvious as well. Get it. As well.

diamondsmith, what are those links supposed to signify? Does it tie into an impeding earthquake, or the recent Oklahoma quakes? Would you please interpret for me--I'm lost.
