Do you have a location map or know the exact area?

How strong are the quakes?

USGS only showing these 2. Baja sure was shallow.

There is very little publicly available around Tonga.

The closest I can find are on this temporary page I have just put up.

I will fix the menu in case you forget the link. It will be on Links By Country shortly.

The last thing I want to be doing right now is writing. But I am compelled. To be honest, California is always a mess. The same with Alaska and the entire Ring of Fire. I've been watching the world-wide quakes for two years. I think I've got a handle on the basic norms. Starting on around March 6, apogee. The larger quakes began showing up. It had been relatively quiet prior to the new moon. Activity started gradually increasing. The 9.0 Japanese earthquake happened on the 11th, but the plate started moving before that. The first of the precursory quakes started early on the 9th. The plate didn't exactly start moving on the 9th, it's always moving. So something critical could have changed before the 9th.

Since the Japanese main shock, I've noticed a pattern. The earthquakes in the United States especially, have been moving inland and to the east. And quakes are popping up in some not so usual areas. New Hampshire. Ohio. Maybe Florida???? One in Canada on a big fault. California is very active. But so is Alaska. And the quakes in Alaska are also moving inland and migrating. It would seem the Japanese quake has activated the Pacific Platea and the Juan de Fuca Plate, and they are being thrust under North America. I see obivous triggering.

And that's not all. It appears the Indian Plate is migrating as well. I've been paying special attention to Asia and have noticed three main stress point to the north of India. Ajzerbijan had a mud volcano eruption as well. Puterman disagrees with me because he thinks the distances involved are too great. Even with the massive energy of the main shock and aftershocks, he thinks this would not be enough to trigger a mud volcano so far away. The experts think the same. And well, I would say they are correct. The Japenese quake didn't not directly trigger the mud volcano. Nor did the 9 pointer trigger the other Asian quakes directly. There are several factors. But the Indian Plate on the move would trigger the mainland quakes and cause localized increased activity.

In my nakes eyes, and confessing I am an amatuer, I see lots of worldwide plate movement and strange coincidental epicenters. But I don't believe in coincidences. Nothing happens in complete isolation.

The moon and water are key factors. You can't look at an earthquake and only think of the dirt. There's liquification. Remember, the earthquake did not kill many people in Japan. The event it triggered did the most damage. The waves. Earthquakes cause waves in the rock and in the ocean. The moon causes waves in the oceans and in the groundwater. These are called tides. There is an incredible dynamic between our moon and the sun and our blue world. This dance drives the whole process. To look at one aspect and not understand the whole is to miss the most crucial point of order.

I'm not saying all hell is going to break loose. I can't even say anything major will happen under the full moon. It's not that simple or predictable. But it is like the weather, you can forecast, but you can never fully guage the storm's intesity or direction. You can only observe and try to use educated guesses to test your hypothesis and see if your models hold up to the scrutiny that reality and real events provide.

I hope this helps. I need rest. I'm not at my best. I think too much.

quakes.globalincidentmap.com...

I am not knowledgeable about earthquakes, but this seems wild to me. I know they are small but holy crap. Ive been watching this for the last week or so and I haven't seen this much activity. Is this a prelude to something? I'm not trying to fear monger here, i just have no clue.

(my times might be off, lots of cuts and pastes sorry)

Found this info re: Fl quakes. It actually mentions the St. Augustine area. I thought I felt it too. At first I thought it was a freight train as I have racks not far away but no train. Weird.

I think you are right about the moon and water. I was reading on one of the NASA links about the SuperMoon (and I can't find the link I was reading) which was stating that the highest tides will be two or three days after the 19th, so just maybe the EQ's will do the same? Just a thought...

Has anyone seen this one yet?
Magnitude: 5.9
Location: near the east coast of Honshu, Japan

Time: Sat, 19 Mar 2011 09:56:51 GMT
GMT: Sat, 19 Mar 2011 09:56:51 GMT

Latitude: 36° 51' 19" N (36.8554°)
Longitude: 140° 19' 51" E (140.3311°)
Depth: 24.7 km

Sky news are reporting it as a 6.1
Is this on a different fault, different earthquake or part of the aftershocks?

If this series of quakes is along a separate fault line and they ate showing signs of increasing intensity, is this something that would be cause for concern?

I remember watching the quakes off the coast of Japan and mentioning to my wife that it seems like that quakes were getting stronger. I recall they were in the 4 range then the begun to be in the 5s and then there was that 7.2. So, if we see a similar pattern emerge along this separate fault line it could be indicative of another large quake on this other fault.

Well from what I've noticed, for every month in 2010-2009, there were earthquakes of 7.0+... except from January 18 to March 11... almost two months, not a single one 7.0+.. the earth needed a release... and a big one at that.

Been 8 days since the last 7.0+ earthquake. We should see a new one within the next 2-3 weeks max. Hopefully it's not in Japan again.

Basically yes. That 9.0 however was a monster and represents 97% of all the energy since the 7+ on the 9th.

The magnitudes seem to be settling down as well.

Raoul, Kermedec Islands

No, these are publicly available. I don't have some special access


What I was meaning was that on Tonga itself there is nothing available to the public. I would imagine there are instruments, but we can't get at them.
