Ok, not sure where this thread goes so if this is out of place would the mods please move it to the appropriate spot.
Next, I was wondering if someone could be so kind and explain to me why it is taking so long for USGS to update their Mag. 2.5 worldwide page. I am
sitting here right now looking at it and as we speak I KNOW there have been EQ's in the Japan area in the last 2 hours and yet USGS is not posting
them. I understand that they have a lot to go through and they want a seizmologist to review some or all of them, but this is ridiculous. It
doesn't take almost 2 hours to say "Yep, that's an earthquake and it happend right there." Any of us on ATS could look at the waveforms and know
that much, and some really smart ATS people are pretty good at questimating the magnitudes. So what's the problem I ask? Maybe I am just not
understanding the whole process.
Also, anyone else having issues with the two seizmos in Japan on their GEE the last couple of days. Have they been recalibrated or something? The
signatures don't look the same as it did the day of the big quake or the couple of days afterwards.
