I asked this 3 times in the "official" earthquake thread, but was ignored through 10 pages . . . so . . .

What is the geological significance of these quakes?

There have been dozens of them.

Is it the earth spooling down, so to speak?

Is it building up for another?

What does it mean?

I, too, asked the same question and was forgotten. i hope we get our answers here.

Anything below a 7.0 right now is a blessing as long as no Tsunami is generated, and usually there is none with an earth quake of that size.

Is this normal for California to be getting hit like this so often? Perhaps the New Madrid fault will have something to say as well?

That is pretty normal the only one that sticks out is the one near Baja. California is one of the most seismic effected area's in the world, similar to Japan, The New Madrid Fault line has been engaging as of late, but so far I do not see a huge need of concern, but it does require monitoring, and everyone in a seismically active area should be prepared with at least three days of water and food, and all the required medical supplies you will need. A first aid kit, as well as emergency supplies.

The total number of after-shock earthquakes is actually decreasing. Just take a look on how the situation used to be yesterday this time:

let us hope things are going to calm down now...

Do we really need a new thead on a different angle of the same topic being discussed in numerous threads here on ATS? Could this have not been asked on one of the many already been created?.

As the OP said, even after asking they were unable to get an answer after many pages of exchange. Its a good question that many people (including myself) are asking and I think warrants discussion.

I began a thread related to this yesterday. Understandingly it did not garner much attention with so much going on. Yes, I believe it is possible this may lead to something more. Here is a link to the thread with an article about another fault that they (Japan) expected to get the 'big one' from.

Could Japan get another mega quake?

ETA: I also adress the swarm of quakes in the Gulf of California (Mexico) in my Washington State thread (Click on the last is an on-going thread)...see my sig for link

Did you even read the OP?

I asked this three times, as did others, and it went unanswered.

Take a chill pill.

Thank you for the link. I will read through it.

Amazing how no one wants to think of what the ramifications are. They just want to be oooh'd and ahhhh'd by doom and gloom.

Our planet is not as stable as many would like to believe. Eathquake, Tsunamis, tremors, etc, etc, earth changes had been with mankind since our curent civilisation began.

Our ancestors survived, because they were resiliant and adapted, even without the scientific knowledge that we know today. In the past, billions of ordinary human lives were lost when such tragedies occurred from time to time.

But each time, they learnt their mistakes, and corrected their errors, so that the next generations will be spared the pain and sufferings. The dead is mourned, but life must go on for the living, with greater need not to repeat the mistakes of the past, more so if it was due to greed.

Each and every individual human is special and have inherent gifts and callings. Some become doctors to heal, some become lawyers to protect the innocent, some become police or military to protect, some become geolgists to make discoveries, etc, etc. It is instinctive and natural in them and they become the best in their fields following their callings.

But unfornately, our generation had turned away from our callings due to greed. Many gifted chosed to become fund managers, wall street casino dealers, big time stock gamblers instead of manufacturing investors, etc. Scientists whom would rather lick the boots of corporations for their funds, generate half lies instead of truths, etc.

As such, we this generation FAILED. But it is still not late if we make our corrections now.

The aftermath of the Japan quake is horrific, but no less horrific to earth changes of the past, where thousands had perished. Each precious life means something to someone.

It will not be the last quake or Earth changes on our homeworld, and there will be more, from time to time. Let us have no illusions to such facts. Thus a greater need to fully comprehend our sciences, to build upon it so that future generations where a 10 year kid taught with common inter galactic sciences would laugh at Stephen Hawkings and call him a moron and a shaman with his limited knowledge on how our Universe works.

Only such advances can ours and future generations be protected. And for that, we mankind need to work in hand in hand, not hands against hands.

Of more immediate concern would be mankind to be prepared for the worst to happen. With preparedness, we no longer would need to live in fear every moment, but would know what to do and what course of action to take when SHTF, regardless of earth change or socio-political- economic changes.

We are the product of our courageous and resilant ancestors whom survived, and will do no less for our loved ones and future generations whom will inherit the stars and fill the stars because of what we will do today.....

It appears at the moment at least that the magnitudes profile is following the expected pattern.

Aftershocks are generally up to 1.5 mag below the main shock and slowly decrease over time until normal periodicity is restored. All events to that point are considered aftershocks, even if this process takes years which it can.

This is the profile from 1st Jan this year to today.
