I already checked earlier today and found no fracking near the Nevada quakes.

Yes, there is an ammuntion storage area to the east in Hawthorne, but the two areas are well to the west.

And when you look on Google Earth, you find both epicenters are right where there is mining. There is an old volcano called Aurora Crater where the most western quakes have occured.

So take your pick. Either it's from the mining in both places,
or it's a dormant volcano coming back to life.

I'll bet on the mining.
It's Nevada after all. Everything is legal there.

Interesting map - ammunition plant - wheels spinning.

Here is a map of the Aurora Crater - Nevada

According to Wikipedia, Hawthorne is in Mineral County - so named because the surrounding area is heavily mineralized.

So you may be onto something with the mining.

I want to say that it's not mining but it is the mining. It's wierd. Because the depths are all over the place. Some deep, some shallow. I thought with much checking they were blowing off the tops of mountains. I saw the giant man made mountain and the giant holes carved in the earth so I didn't give it much thought. Business as usual.

It just seems a bit extreme and too long lasting at various depths to be from the production. Maybe the mining has set off a faultline. Maybe they tapped into a hot-spring and it's flooding the mines. That's a wild guess. I'm in such a horrible mood I need to play a guessing game anyways.

Shelock Holmes was a mess too. That's why he solved mysteries. If he didn't have the distraction, he was not a functional being.

Something strange is afoot. Maybe the buggers tapped into a old magma tube. Maybe the awakened a dormate volcano. Someone should start a new thread. This one has conspiracy written all over it.

Maybe there's aliens tucked away in an underground city, and they're fighting their way out. The blasts from the battle showing up as earthquakes. The US army will be using HAARP in order to stop the escape attempt. I mean this is right near an army base. And it's near Area 51. It's a slam dunk case.

I don't comment on many other threads. I like it here. But I had to express my outrage on a thread started recently about the homeless. I lost it. I was fracking mad. I wrote a piece where I was being sarcastic and said the should round up the homeless and stick in a camp, and give them special tattoos. I thought it was obvious.

So I'm being sarcastic. I don't know what's going on, but it's weird. It may be big. I don't know. I just thought I'd get that off my chest. I just don't get how people think the government is trying to destroy the country it's obsessed about defending. The Pentagon has enough places to test their new system on without having to injure itself.

I don't know what the hell I'm talking about and not really lashing out an anyone in particular. I was sickened by the homeless thread. You all know I just want to talk about earthquakes and volcanoes. I'm not the freakin' verge of a nervous breakdown. Don't worry about me though. It's been this way for a long time now. Walk in the park. If the park was in hell. Sorry. Sorry. Sorry. Just raging against the machine.

Did you know that someone had the brilliant idea to use small nuclear devices to frack some shale in, I think, North Dacota? Someone else disagreed and the idea was scrapped. They're looking into frackiing the hell out of the place now. So you may be seeing earthquakes in North Dakota soon.

Fracking sucks.

Funny you mention nuclear blast in the last paragraph, because thats about what a Mag 4 is equal to (like the Korean ones).
Two of them seems a bit out there though.
I think its a natural event, being a geothermal area.
Not to say mining is not involved, the Newcastle, NSW, Australia 5.6 quake was blamed on mining in that area (coal) en.wikipedia.org...


In early 2007 a United States academic claimed that coal mining in the region triggered the earthquake, although earthquake activity has been present in the area at least since white settlement first occurred.
This is in addition to reports by the former head of Geosciences Australia's earthquake monitoring group, Dr David Denholm, who stated that the Newcastle earthquake was some distance from mining activity: "The depths of the focus of the earthquake was about 13, 14 kilometres, whereas the ones associated with mining, they're actually right close to the mine, because that's where the stress release takes place"

We still have an 8 potentially to come so I would not be (from a seismological point of view) concerned about a 7.1

Edit:
Mm, just realised that one was on shore and not deep. Not good as you say.

============================================================

Here is a useless piece of information from the workshops of the Data Mangle.

From January 2000 to the end of March this year there were 20,345 Mag5 to Mag 7 inclusive earthquakes. In that same period of time there were 15 Magnitude 8 or greater earthquakes.

The energy release for these is as follows:

Mag 5-7 (20,345) 2,107.3 Petajoules
Mag 8-9 (15) 6,999.2 Petajoules

In other words 3.32 times as much energy was released in just 15 earthquakes as in all the rest over mag 5 in the period of just over 11 years

And here is a graph of 12 month rolling totals, ie. first set is Jan 2000-Dec 2000 inc, next is Feb 2000-Jan 2001, etc.

Thats not what i mean. It looks to me as if its migrating directly towards Tokyo. The 7.1 on the Seventh was NNE of this one.

Edit: The Big Yellow thing. And its in Line with the Fault to the East.

The one on the 11 Mar was closer to Tokyo and a 7.9 and there was another east of this. I don't see a pattern here.

Edit to add GIF



Apologies for the colours. They went wrong when I scrunched it down to make a reasonable file size.

Lets just say i have a bad feeling about those two last big "Aftershocks".

2. Line

The intensity of that one wasn't as high as the other ones despite being below the Honshu landmass (just glancing at the colours).

Edit: oops had the wrong quake that was a 4.7

This was the 7.1
www.jma.go.jp...

there has been a 6.0 since that

Look at the 3 last Quakes on EMSC ,they look like Aftershocks of the Aftershock

5.3
5.0
5.4



Edit: USGS now has one

5.6
4.7

That looks like the same quake to me and the 7.1 is only a 6- intensity which I would have thought at that depth on land would be more.

Maybe USGS is seing one and the Japanese seeing 2?
and EMSC seing double!!


Edit:

I am going to wait an hour until they sort themselves out. USGS popped up a 6 the other day from a few days before that did not hit the lists. They are good at that.

Another one on USGS...WTF?

Edit: And EMSC,they are just faster than the slowpokes at USGS

Edit: Gonna posz both the Big "Aftershock" and the Aftershocks of this last "Aftershock"





Looks a little odd,no?

Did they change that? It is a 4.7. What was it when you posted?

EMSc have a 5.3 that USGS have not posted.

I have a question- how does a 6.6 occurring under land, not sea, create a 1 meter tsunami, which NHK reported already arrived?

Only thing I can think of is that it could be mislocated, and the quake could have occurred just off the coast. Open to ideas on this one.
