luckily they are where they are, on land it would be a bit disconcerting
I'm working on a decent map, have to make some new icons with fs on them to show "foreshock" otherwise its just a jumble

like this

current events


just a kitten compared to
map of the 1995 swarm Feb 5 to Dec 31


4261 aftershocks from a 6.991 ML mainshock (the depth of those averaged 12km, a bit shallower than the current one)

Last 7 days - all NZ kmz for Google earth

I am sure you can do much better muzzy but since I looked at it I thought I may as well post it.

Heres my version/s


interactive map all NZ 18112011 ( icons unmarked except those with F for Felt (felt reports inside F icon tags)
and the Last 7 Days version is linked in my signature

interactivemap os East Cape (some marked with f for Foreshock, and 0 for Aftershock, but no felt reports inside)

I wasn't sure where this series was going, so I started the icons at 0 as "Day of Event" aftershocks
Hasn't been much since, looks like just a couple of 3's in the last 12 hours


A strange one indeed



edit on 19-11-2011 by muzzy because: (no reason given)

might as well throw this one in as well, buy 3 get one free

Mag5+ All NZ 2011

Fiordland has been quiet this year


edit: I'll probably edit that KMZ file for os East Cape at the end of the day, hopefully it will update on this page too.

must have been this one 4.8ML on JMA

that East Pacific Rise is more "in the middle" than "on the other side" IMO, when I seen the first line of your post , without scrollong down yet, I thought the "other side" was going to be Andreanof Is


I see the Andreanof Is. one is a 5.7 Mw on Geofon, and it has been manually reviewed
USGS have 5.1mb

big difference

there seems to be some kind of policy at USGS not to convert certain earthquakes to Mw

the magnitudes seem to be getting slightly higher, if you watch this page on JMA
note they are also all land based, so not necessarily aftershocks of the March 11 Mag 9.1

I'm getting to the point where USGS is just used as a reference point, they are so out of sync. with the local networks when it comes to magnitudes I just don't believe a word of it any more
,

that first one JMA was 4.8ML and USGS had 5.1 (up 3 points)
this latest one was JMA 5.5ML and USGS has 5.2 (down 3 points )
how can that be


heres the JMA page for that quake

basically when it come to Japan the only use I have for USGS is to see what the local time was so I can find it on the JMA list (JST)

Lord, I sincerely hope not.


Every time I see increased activity in Japan these days, especially along Honshu's eastern coastal region, I think about those destroyed/melted/trashed reactors and spent fuel pools at Fukushima Dai-chi. No matter what they do there to try and stabilize and contain the situation, just one larger quake or (heaven forbid!) tsunami could make matters far worse than they already are.

The problem is, that will be the case for many years hence.

How can that be?


Because USGS use Mb, Mw, Mi. Mblg, Abc, Xyz, Ms, Gs, and mainly Bs whereas JMO only use ML.

Since USGS never uses ML they are never going to sing from the same hymn sheet!

shallow


I'm not sure what the measurements from are when they are under the sea

at that location the sea is already 3.5km deep to start with
is the eq depth from the sea bed?

According to the people who speak in yards, feet and fractions of an inch and still use that quaint F scale for temperature......


The depth where the earthquake begins to rupture. This depth may be relative to mean sea-level or the average elevation of the seismic stations which provided arrival-time data for the earthquake location. The choice of reference depth is dependent on the method used to locate the earthquake. Sometimes when depth is poorly constrained by available seismic data, the location program will set the depth at a fixed value. For example, 33 km is often used as a default depth for earthquakes determined to be shallow, but whose depth is not satisfactorily determined by the data, whereas default depths of 5 or 10 km are often used in mid-continental areas and on mid-ocean ridges since earthquakes in these areas are usually shallower than 33 km.

I just came across this while I was looking for something else.

How Are Earthquakes Related to Plate Tectonics?

Some might enjoy it. It is an easy to understand and graphically informative look at earthquakes.

If you click on 'Investigations' when you have finished you will find a raft of other 'stuff' as well.

Thanks for the links, Puterman.

What is the significance of earthquakes along Reykjanes Ridge? We don't get quakes here in Newfoundland but this is the closest I've seen them to the island. Though I do remember seeing them numerous times in the past in the same sort of 2-3 4.5+ quakes surge. Is it common for that area to release a bit of pressure every couple of weeks?

Yes it is the time of year for Reykjanes earthquakes. Mostly, but not always there is a burst of quakes that starts around the beginning of the hurricanes season and extends through until around January. I can vary though with some bunches in summer some years. I have not looked yet to see if those years are also bad weather summers.

While Newfoundland is not known for quakes, it has had a few biggies in the general region, including a subsea magnitude 7.2 on November 18, 1929 that produced a localized tsunami.

You can read about it in this Earthquakes Canada article entitled The 1929 Magnitude 7.2 "Grand Banks" earthquake and tsunami. A very good article, that includes photographs, maps, and many details of the mechanics of the tsunami. Well worth reading.

Update on os East Cape NZ

same Interactive Map as before, 5 x Day 2 aftershocks added

just the one quake identified since I did this last night, a 4.227
URZ Geonet Graph

seem to be staying in the same general area, on (under) the overlapping East Cape Ridge (Australian Plate)
