It got demoted... Funny how that doesn't surprise me.

Just by the way for anyone who's following this, there have now been two little aftershocks (fair enough term this time) in that area, both very close to the epicentre of the former mag 4.9 which is now a mag 4.5.

A mag 2.8 shortly followed by a mag 2.9:

Not serious quakes by any stretch, but an interesting series and worth having logged, I think.

Yes I will call those aftershocks!

Re Chile, I am finding that what we see is in no way what is eventually in the catalogs.

Catalog,Date and Time UTC, Latitude, Longitude,Number of Stns, Depth, Location
USGS 2010-02-27T07:12:28.000Z, -33.8074, -71.9132, 186, 35, offshore Valparaiso. Chile
ANSS 2010-02-27T07:12:28.000Z, -33.878, -71.943, 291, 35

The first is the one I got from the 7 day data. The second is in the ANNS catalogue. Note in particular the Latitude difference.

In addition to this there are many more in the ANSS catalogue than I originally collected. My only problem is that the ANSS catalogue stops in July at present so it could be a long while before I can get an accurate view of 2010.

Whilst it will make little difference to my analysis, many of these missing ones are mag 5 range.

Here is a sample block:

6 quakes in 10 minutes that were not reported at the time and all bar one a good 5.

IC that EMSC have buckled under and downgraded the Chile quake to 7.1Mw

Interesting how the info comes in and how they get their final result, the incoming data starts at the bottom of the list, the RedBold is the final result.
What is REALLY interesting is the bottom 2, 33 seconds before the time of the quake given by all the networks
This could be useful as an early warning, I have known about this page for some time, its off a button on EMSC's main list page www.emsc-csem.org... just under the logo where it says For Siesmolgists" , but I won't link to it directly as I might get in trouble, go see for yourself.

I have never been live on the page and seen something develop into a major quake, but have seen previous quakes with precursor incoming data similar to this.

edit on 3-1-2011 by muzzy because: I had 15 minutes prior, incorrect, it was 33 seconds, got the minutes and seconds mixed up. Admittedly 33/43 seconds isn't much time to brace yourself, but hey, any warning might be useful
edit on 3-1-2011 by muzzy because: In the BoldRed line the Auto/Manual M has a + beside it, this must mean that it has been revised ??

edit: the EMSC result also contains various locations based on the above data on this map (similar to what I did with comparing the Networks

Not quite sure what you are driving at here muzzy. Norsar and Prague may have contributed phase data, but they certainly did not do it BEFORE the event.

The fact that they got it so wildly wrong is hardly surprising considering the time delay?

Okay you guys, I am now CONVINCED about my dogs and earthquakes.

Last night, I was exchanging emails with a local ATS'er regarding our seismic activity. As I was signing off, my dog started acting SOOOO wierd, that I sent this email:

from: westcoast
sent: 3-1-2011 at 06:27 AM
Okay, so I was on my way to bed when my little dog started freaking out.

She is shaking and clinging to me. I have never seen her this way...hope we aren't gonna get a quake!!

Take care-

Now....that is ATS time..
I am on the West coast of the states and it was 12:27 AM.

They just updated USGS with this quake:

Date-Time Monday, January 03, 2011 at 08:33:14 UTC

Event ID uw01030833

Note the local time of 12:33 AM ?????

Yes, this was a very small quake, but it was VERY close to me. (probably around 20 miles)

If my dog EVER acts like that again.....I am going to be very nervous. She was literally shaking, sitting on my feet and wouldn't even take a treat. I had to hold her under a blanket and pet, coo to her for almost 20 minutes before she settled down. It was bizarre. (my other dog was doing his looking around wierd and barking at nothing) I checked the seismos last night ofcourse, but they didn't add it until late this morning.

Animals are EQ sensitive. Get a copy of "When The Snakes Awake." It's very facinating. They think there is a low frequency electromagnetic feild that affects them. Some people think there is metal in the brain that animals and people can pick up. So, pay attention to the little guy and give him a hug for me.

reply to post by westcoast

SOME animals are sensitive, just like SOME people are too.

We have had 3 Newfoundland dogs and 3 cats over the years and we get earthquakes quite regularily, like at least one a month that humans feel, and dozens that just happen and no one reports them, none of our animals EVER showed signs of distress or unrest or even raised an eyebrow prior to a earthquake.
The only movement came when us humans were rolling out of bed heading for the doorway, the animals probably thought it was playtime, dinner time or we were going for a walk

Maybe your other dog was freaking out just because the other one was acting strange

I am thinking they listed it as another member here started a thread about feeling it - and a number of people jumped in claiming to feel it. If you look at the USGS they also look into and report on felt quakes - just a thought.

The after shock debate

It has taken me all day to get the data together and into the database, with a few distractions, but finally here is the graph.

This is from 1963 so does not include the big one sonce ANSS do not have any data before 1963. This looks a bit messy as it is a large amount of data.

You can see a steady ramp up of the cummulative, with a little blip in 1985. It is averaging around 50 a year - actually about 500 every 11 to 12 years right up to 2010. Then BAM!!

That rate has NOT got back to normal yet. Based on the last 30 days i is still running at over one hundred a year.

Take a look at this from 2003 onwards.

You can see quite clearly on this graph that the ramp rate has not got back to it's normal level.

I suggest that Chile is still suffering aftershocks from the Feb 2010 8.8 and you cannot yet say that anything under that level is a new set.

I rest my case m'lud.

I would like to ask a favour if you dont mind as i feel its very important. Could you please create a thread regarding Buoy Data. Something massive is going to happen im sure of it.
I cant believe that theres no threads already, so i thought id ask you.
Solar Watch
Volcano 2011 etc etc but no Buoy data collection threads?

I believe because i can feel it. Yes sounds stupid i know but i think that we are a lot closer than people think.
Anyone else getting weird headaches and sensations?? Pets acting wierd etc?

Please create a thread i feel its very important. Many thanks.

Should i get worried about more,bigger Quakes happening in Europe now? Or are those related to Mining etc.? Serious Question.

No not really, I haven't got the time to change my World graphs every day

There was a trend going there 2 days/2x 7+ quakes

posted on Jan, 4 2011 @ 12:31 PM
reply to post by PuterMan

Interesting the quakes are getting more numerous after that 8.0 in 1985 offshore Valparaiso, I didn't download anything under Mag 7 but there were "thousands" of aftershocks according to USGS.
Prior to the 9.6 in 1960 things were pretty quiet, with 7's anyway.

What magnitudes did you use? because there were surprisingly few Mag 7 quakes in Chile in the 2 decades after the 1961 Great Quake

posted on Jan, 4 2011 @ 12:39 PM
reply to post by muzzy

I used magnitude 4.5 upwards for that little exercise.

What i find strange is that ANSS had nothing pre 1963. I need a source for Chile before that if you have one?
