Lessons from Fukushima crisis should be applied in Turkey: Edano

TOKYO, Dec. 5, Kyodo


english.kyodonews.jp/news/2011/12/129834.html


Japanese industry minister Yukio Edano expressed hope Monday for the deepening of bilateral cooperation with Turkey in the area of nuclear power generation, including exports of related Japanese technology, saying the lessons learned from the Fukushima nuclear crisis should be utilized in quake-prone Turkey.

Speaking at the Turkey-Japan Economic Forum in Tokyo attended by visiting Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Ali Babacan, Economy, Trade and Industry Minister Edano said that nuclear power generation is an "important area of cooperation" with Turkey.

"We intend to advance cooperation in a way that Turkey can apply the lessons of the accident (at the Fukushima Daiichi plant)," Edano said.

"The nuclear accident is steadily moving toward a situation where it is brought under control," Edano said, adding that Japan intends to realize a cold shutdown of the plant reactors by the end of this year.

In October, Edano requested in a meeting with Turkish energy minister Taner Yildiz that Ankara continue talks with Tokyo over a nuclear power plant deal in Turkey.

or
they already plan to downgrade it (after the 7 days are up ???)


In all probability yes! Here is the current entry in the QED list from the ftp site.


061910.4& 41.364S 174.315E 56 5.2 86 COOK STRAIT, NEW ZEALAND. . ML 5.7 (WEL).
Felt strongly in Marlboroough and Wellington.

What happens in here usually ends up on the 8 day list

yeah the 1980's were pretty quiet
graph of Mag 7's 1910-2011 (numbers of quakes)
(granted I haven't referenced the Centennial List for the 1980's yet)

could be, my AV doesn't offer reasons it just blocks malicious threats.
So EMSC is more accurate initially then?

See GFZ have converted Cook Strait from 5.2mb to 5.0Mw
personally I think the ML reading Geonet gave best decribes the size of it and as I mentioned previously it seemed quite "constrained", as overseas recording stations all showed low readings.
Bit of a strange one none the less, no more aftershocks yesterday UTC, so only 3 x Mag 2's and a Mag 1, wheres the 3's and maybe a 4 you might expect?
is there more to come? and where?

Further to my reply to you about PNG some time ago it did indeed get reduced as I noted a couple of posts ago. I said 6.2.....


BTW PNG 6.4 - I am guessing 6.2 Mw. Looks to high based on the Mb values


It got 6.1

I should keep a record of these. I am better than the USGS!!! (not)

If these two were foreshocks(?) and this one at 19:28 is still a foreshock.....

....can you explain the reasoning?

They are hundreds of km apart so I was wondering why you were connecting them?

Don't know if I posted this one before - - it's a goodie -- so in case not - here ya go


Today’s Earthquake Fact
The hypocenter of an earthquake is the location beneath the Earth's surface where the rupture of the fault begins. The epicenter of an earthquake is the location directly above the hypocenter on the surface of the Earth.

I was out and missed that one.
I wonder why they didn't use the Darwin station in the USGS phase data, it had a beautiful black double tap,

Are you guys watching this, the long valley area has lite up. It's probably nothing, but I thought I would just post to document.


Crap I still can't figure the down load. I am soooo computer un.

and a nice green trace there on
GIRL station BHZ
but pretty rare that size for that spot

ETA:
here is a map with all quakes 1984-2011 for WA, zoom out from where I set the scale at Exmouth and see them all
historic WA quakes 1984-2011
good luck there are 5001 of them


There are more prior to 1984 obviously, this is how far back GeoAu goes, its a hard site to work through, I think prior to 1984 the earthquakes were recorded on local state networks.

Just quitley sneeking in this thread here. I saw an unusual earthquake on usgs earlier today and started to search about them on this site. I just joined but figured there would be good info on earthquakes and turns out there was.
So could I ask if this quake is weird, I havent seen one there before.

A good way to see whether a quake is unusual or not is to refer to the historical seismicity map that USGS provides for most events (under the Maps tab for each event).

neic.usgs.gov...

So yes, quakes are not common there BUT not unknown... it's not the most active of places but it is a place they occur from time to time.

Wow thanks for that, very good resource. I have only been watching earthquakes for close to a year.

Its the biggest quake in that region for a long time atleast, and I noticed that they are all very shallow.

theres more to WA than what NEIC show

see the WA muzzymap using Geo Au data on the edit to reply to anmarie96 for the real deal


you can click and unclick the boxes on the side menu as desired to see the various magnitudes or copy and paste the address thats in the search box into an empty browser tab or window address bar that will open the thing in Google Earth

I noticed that too, of the 5001 quakes Geo Australia recorded between 1984 and yesteday 4970 of them were shallower than 20km.

WA muzzymap icons/markers are by magnitude, not depth

Hi Muzzy Just a joke:A friend of has the most accurate data station,a parrot that says the accurate magnitude he say "5.8,5.5,no 5.6,no 5.7....USGS,USGS...."but he didn't measure the depth!
