never clicked that, but theres not much on there anyway, I was looking for their database.
maybe you have to set the date yourself on the map , I had one up from 2000-2011

yeah California is overdue ( a cliche I know )
been 3 years since the last Mag 5 on land, thats a long time between 5's

Nice section of the site. ^^ It looks like the earthquake off the coast here in 1812 was a 7.1 instead of a 7.9.

been doing some research to compile Timeline Aftershock graphs for significant global events and used one off the USGS web site called SISRA to get data for Chile 1960.
Wondering what SISRA stands for I found this page, explains the databases USGS uses.
this was interesting

PDE Preliminary Determinations of Epicenters, Monthly Listing. This list is the most complete computation of hypocenters and magnitudes done by the USGS NEIC. It is normally produced a few months after the events occur. The publication is called "Preliminary" because the "final" computation of hypocenters for the world is considered to be the Bulletin of the International Seismological Centre (ISC), which is produced about two years after the earthquakes occur.
The NEIC PDE program contributes about one-third off all data used by the ISC.

so here is the BIG BOSS

ISC search

So Japan 2011 will still be "preliminary" 9.0 or 9.1 depending on where you read it for another 13 months

what a quandary now, I did a search of 1960 using ISC and found two "new" Mag 7+ quakes that I didn't have before, in Iran

I think that parts of LA and San Francisco should get extremely reinforced, depending upon suspicion of where the fault will produce the most damage. Clearly we're looking at a window of about several more years or next week, but either way it's unavoidable from what the world seems to believe. California has a higher population than all of Canada the last I checked. I haven't really heard of any developments, but they should have a Japan-like or Japan-based system going very soon, at the least.

I think a lot of people feel that CA will have it's own Japan quake, though probably not as a big, hopefully not as big. I can't imagine the same situation thrown at Japan put in reverse and given to the western NA, but that's what people should be aware, with the most preparedness possible to alleviate the anxiety.

Basically no. The Centennial is an accepted catalogue. You also have to be careful about chasing magnitudes. There are many different determinations of magnitudes as you are well aware and the PDE (used in the circular search) is not any different in that respect.

All I got from that was

No events were found.

International Seismological Centre
Pipers Lane, Thatcham, Berkshire
United Kingdom RG19 4NS

That was using Mw, and using Any for the magnitude I could find not one of the ones you said, nor could I find the Chile Earthquake or basically any over about 6. You will have to let us in on the secret for the parameters.

The ISC's Internet link is limited to 56 kbit/s, so it is not possible to provide extremely large quantities of data from the web site. To avoid overloading either our Internet link or our database server, we currently respond only to queries that return fewer than 6,400 events without phase data

Well that is a load of outdated K-rap then! Never heard of broadband?

In fact here is my search. See what I get for 1960.

That is for 01/01/1960 00 to 31/12/1960 23 for any lat/lon/depth for any mag type, any agency and between 0 and 10 mag.

The results are just rubbish!

based on the time, the "bigun" is listed on ISC as Event 879135
Magnitude Err Nsta Author OrigID
8.3 PAS 1906800

I put the 4 versions of co-ordinates into Google Earth along with my KMZ file and the locations are all over the place, ehb has it on land, whereas Coast and Geodetic Survey of the United States (CGS) has it pretty close to where I had it located by NOAA

Re the 2 Iranian ones and the North Korea,
QUE (Pakistan Geological Survey) can't be ignored as they are a neighbouring country
MAT (the 7 listing for the Korean one) is Matsushiro, Japan, which is plausable, well enough for ISC to use it along with 6.5 and 6.5 PAS and BRK

for the purposes of the "7+ Project" anything that is listed as a 7 gets in, regardless of magnitude type.
On the map popups the other networks readings are included even if they are below 7.

the whole thing is quite complex

I already have ISC listed as a source on my 7+ Project, I think from memory Utsu grabbed those to include in his project, but it seems using the ISC site itself brings up more borderline events and as can be seen from this current 1960 search result, if it looks, smells and feels like a 7 then they put it in, even if only one station got it at Mag 7.
My project is more about presenting the information in a more user friendly format (maps and graphs) than a bunch of lists, but I do want to be accurate with the data.

FWIW this ISC membership list contains quite a few sources of earthquake info (links) I didn't have

eg Geological Survey Dept of Republic of Cyprus
and NRIAG (Egypt)

more the smaller quakes, obviously the main networks catch anything in the 4+ range ( usually)

not happy with that graph, so done one by the month
Sumatra 4 months aftershocks graph
interesting how there were surges exactly at 30 days 90 days afterwards, but no the dates don't coincide with any lunar phases Lunar Phase Calculator

been a wet and windy quiet day here

I've decided to keep these and add more as time allows

Thanks for that muzzy. From your chart there, it appears to me the 9.1 and 8.6 may have been two separate events in Sumatra, each complete with its own set of aftershocks which decrease in magnitude and frequency over time. Did the 9.1 trigger the 8.6? That is the question.

Chance for big tsunami in eastern Japan within 30 yrs revised up to 30%

TOKYO (Kyodo) -- The probability of a major earthquake occurring and triggering a massive tsunami in the Pacific Ocean off eastern and northeastern Japan within the next 30 years has been revised up to 30 percent from 20 percent, a government panel said Friday.

The Earthquake Research Committee has reexamined its long-term estimate of killer temblors after the March 11 quake and tsunami and found that a quake that triggers a tsunami as powerful as the one caused by the 1896 Meiji-Sanriku Earthquake, which killed more than 20,000 people, is more likely to happen in the sea zone stretching 800 kilometers north-south.

They try to build big Shelters now, massive Structures who can stand this huge kinetic Energy
from the Tsunami Wave!
