Quake-Nerd-Expertise needed:


We believe we may be on the verge of seeing another degree of intensity in the Japanese aftershocks occurring off the east coast of Honshu, Japan. The depth of the quakes and tremors is increasing which could indicate more subduction pressures along the Pacific plate and may suggest the likelihood of a tension snap-effect could be building. From 9:56 to 13:14 hours, the average depth of seven quakes was 29 km, but from 13:14 to 23.00 hours, the average depth of the last seven quakes is now 58 km- the depth of rattling has nearly doubled. Tension is still also recoiled on the Eurasian plate, particularily around China and the Philippines. Stay tuned…

I just see that one on the USGS for the PHILIPPINES.

Is this a normal size quake for the area? EDIT: As in normal i mean normal to have this magnitude.

All so different ! So which one are we meant to go by, i really want to study the EQ's but if i dont know which map to go by how can i get an acurate reading? Its mainly the depth on the quake, as they seem to be very deep?
The big one in the Philippines was huge on some maps but tiny on others. HELP .

I know the answer is in one of these quake watch threads, but I don't remember where. I'm too tired to think much, but I think it's got something to do with the s and p waves measured at a greater distance from the source depending on where the station is located. So for example, if you want the correct reading for a NZ quake go to the NZ source, aka Geonet. If you use the USGS source their closest station may be a further distance so their measurement might be different.
Don't hold me to that explanation. If you U2U Puterman he will explain it better and correctly.

That covers a HUGE area. Again, I will have to refer you to Puterman...look at his signature and you'll find a link to his resources...or you'll find it here
He's currently updating it by country/region so that should make it easier for you.
