Your missing quake just turned up.

No I don't think thats it.Even local mag 4.5's don't show on LISS SNZO
While I was doing something else ( having a nap
) another one came up on LISS.
Started going through the LISS graphs and saved these (all the stations showing the traces)
I was going to post that it might be in the south part of F-E Region 43
Southeast Central Pacific Ocean
Southern East Pacific Rise
Chatham Islands. N.Z. Region
South Of Chatham Islands
Pacific-Antarctic Ridge
Southern Pacific Ocean

As it turned out USGS found the latest one

As has happened in the past I think the earlier one was the same region maybe a 5.0-5.2

While I was looking around i noticed at the bottom of LISS SNZO they have the channel LHZ, but on BUD there is nothing to see

Yes you are right. It came through on the screen, I posted the message to you and really did not even think about it. Bad Science Mr PuterMan!!


The VHZ channel shows the quake: SNZO.IU.00.VHZ.2011.362 and if I put the waveform into my program



(or look at it in Vase)



it is possible to get a rough estimate of the P/S arrival difference of ~220 seconds. Using 6 km/s that means the event was ~1320 km from SNZO. It could be further as the sound of the quake has to be speeded up considerably to hear it and that is always indicative of a quake a couple of thousand miles away.

1320 puts it by the Auckland Islands and 1760 (8 km/s) puts it by Macquarie Island.

If I have time later I might see if I can triangulate some of the others to pinpoint the area better.

ETA: Just a quick estimate. QSPA looks as if it is about 6 mins behind which at 6 km/s makes it around 3,600 km away which is about the distance from the station to Macquaire. 8 km/s puts it around Auckland Islands so it has to be one of those depending on the travel speed of the waves since they both about agree with each other.

im not agree with you sorry..

photographic colouration here too ?
i dont think so...

(Its south venezuela)
I was sure i can find the same in amazonia because :

siberia/amazonia = same

if u find the same like this near a city, ok im wrong... but maybe not

What doesn't help tracking these down is that usgs didn't list SNZO (or any other NZ station for that matter) in the
usgs phase data for the Pac-Ant Ridge 5.5 , despite SNZO being the 2nd largest trace on the LISS graphs
Often you can judge the direction from the size of the trace on those.

Too bad GFZ (Geofon) stopped publishing their phase data, it was a handy cross reference to usgs's.

I guess that 7:00:00 one might show up on the lists in 8 days


Pretty amazing that 5.5 showed on just about every LISS graph.

You say if this was near a city? Just what exactly do you think all those towns in the middle of the 'lava' on the link I gave in this post are? Asbestos townships floating in a lava sea?

I have suggested photographic effects, which may be along the lines of this

You may believe what you like. You asked a question, I gave you my opinion. As far as I am concerned that is an end to it. It is off topic for this thread. Much as I like to try and help where I can I would suggest that if you wish to continue it you could go and try the question on the people in Volcano Watch (see my signature) since it is volcano related.

The only other thing I can suggest is that you go to the forum on the Google Earth Community and pose your question there. I have no doubt someone will be able to tell you why the images are coloured as they are.

Interpreting land features (PPT)

edit on 29/12/2011 by PuterMan because: (no reason given)


ETA: One final thing, further investigation shows this to be a something to do with image resolution as it seems to appear in lower resolution image areas. Look at this location.

54.141372°, -9.560053°

If that was lava I would know it believe me since it is not far from my house. In fact I have travelled though that 'lava' and I can assure you that is just peat bog. Look at the next bit to the right in a higher resolution image. Different colour. Lava does not stop in straight lines.

Interesting article in our local Christchurch paper this morning (the Press): POLICE QUIT HQ AFTER QUAKE FEARS

Basically they're frightened about the building's safety even though they've been assured by engineers that it's SAFE as.

Hey, many of us don't feel 'safe' in the buildings we live and or work in, but we've learnt to SUCK IT UP!

More interestingly though is the following statement in the article:


Last Friday's quakes had "added a degree of urgency" to the plans (apparently they had plans to vacate the building before the 2017 lease ended), and aftershock forecasts from GNS Science seismologists had suggested there was a chance the city would be hit by another BIG quake in the next year!

Gotta say that's not comforting reading...I mean what are they classing as BIG?

Should we even be looking at a CBD rebuild...?

If we get a strong 5.5+ early in the New Year (predicted), then I'm seriously thinking it's time to leave this city!

You can see why Geonet is teaming up with GFZ, they have a better result rate than USGS, there is something new called Geonet Rapid coming out in Jan.

Howdy friends! I hope everyone has a fabulous New Years (and a safe one)!

I'm just going to post the link to the article from one of our local news stations here in Salt Lake City, Utah. As I think the entire article is worthy of a read.

I for one, would LOVE to hear Robin/Eric's take on this. Especially since this falls right in line with some of his theories!


Source - KSL News - Hurricanes cause earthquakes? Apparently, yes!

Lets hope they do dwindle off. A lot of people are hanging out waiting for the rebuild to start, let alone the homeowners, the rest of the country is in recession in the construction industry. Its even an option I'm considering myself it things get any worse here in Wgtn.
Speaking of reading the newspaper, I was reading that over in the UK the construction industry is expecting a further 35% drop in business this next year, so there is likely to be an influx of Poms for the rebuild .......... if they can handle the shaking.

I wonder what influence these quakes are having on the movement towards NZ's South Island, being a spreading ridge area, pushing the Pacific Plate NW?
Time will tell, in the next few days I guess.

More so with mine as well except the reason they are giving is nonsense. Landslides do not remove materials from the faults, they redistribute them and landslides are relatively small fry in terms of mass/weight.

What does have an effect is the change in air mass (despite what TA thinks
) and this is an active area of research. Millions of tons of pressure change in short periods as a tropical storm/hurricane approaches and there is a measurable effect.

More research grants are needed to pursue both avenues however


ETA: Happy New Year to you and yours and all the best in 2012 as well.

That 5.3 was only 11k's away, but no damage. Still a bit nerve racking to say the least!

In today's paper they're saying that there's a possibility of a 7+ in the area in the next 12 months


Honestly, a 7+ will reek absolute HAVOC given the damage that a 6.3 has done so far...praying that the Alpine fault (possible 8+) stays quiet for the next 1000 years or so!

I think there may be a mistake on the USGS list, they have possibly transposed the New Guinea quake into the Christchurch one.
Its very rare that USGS are higher than Geonet, and Geonet have 4.8.
Also the SNZO trace on the 00:00:00 line is too early for the time of the Christchurch event at 00:44:47

maybe
