Now there's a network you don't see mentioned everyday!


Good. I think that trace pretty much sums it up.

Edit: And yup the spectro of that seals the deal. Just look at the separate high end propagation. That MUST be a second event, because that high end could not physically be there from the first quake due to attenuation over distance.

Sorry John, but you've been ATS'd.
You love us though, admit it.

So does this mean I can put the dunces cap back on the shelf?

BTW in case you missed the waveform (I tend to edit existing boxes)





edit on 14/4/2012 by PuterMan because: To add a question mark. They give so much more meaning and help to convey the fact that you are asking a question rather than making a statement. I really should try and use them more often.

Forget the dunce cap Puter, we all screw up from time to time. The great thing is, we have each other to help reach consensus. That is the most important thing.

But John just asked a question, remember, he did not come right out and say, or insist, it was one quake. I am sure that they will determine that on their own now.

Local Date/Time: Friday, April 13, 2012 at 11:31 in the moorning at epicenter

Coordinate: 2° 45.456, 89° 35.544

is taking on a "sling shot" effect from the

Antarctic "horse-show"

and Eurica!

Giant Impact Wave,,, out of no where?? impossible!

rebound sling-shot from the Antarctic,, horseshoe,, bammmm,, Gianna,,

its called billiards...,,lol

Me.



ohhh he replied too himself,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

"ocean floor of the Drake Passage between South America and Antarctica"

ya this area,,,

ohh wait a 6.1 you say ,,hmmm

gee guess everyone seen that comming,,

just like mr. invisible Rouge Wave.

But then again
from all of the replies that i got ,, well,,,
i'll just keep mumbling away,,,,

Bob, you crack me up for sure.

You are in a thread about quakes, talking about some invisible wave that supposedly hit some ship, slinging it into another ship. I checked into that, and all I saw was a report that two ships collided. Where in the world do you come up with this stuff?

Oh. GLP. Yup, should have known.

I'm guessing this is directed at me as I am the only one who responded to your initial post.

You may note that my comment was posed as a question as indicated by the "?" at the end of my first line.

It was not a categorical pronouncement that that was the only possible answer. I figured that if there were anything of merit to investigate, some of the more experienced posters would do so. TA looked into it as indicated by his post above and found nothing of interest.

Perhaps you could provide a link with more information?

is having a direct,,in-line effect,,

with here,,

which the poster so stupidly called,,
(its the drake passage u idiot!)

and Eurica!

Giant Impact Wave

Drake Pasage,,Antarctic,"horse-show" ",

so im glad that the

was just that according too everyone here,,

completely irrelevent,,

looking at the timing of the events,,one can clearly see NO CAUSAE EFFECTUS,, here,,

so i humbly submit too my more learned ,

Those are the P and S waves. I just pulled up the seismograms across the network, and I can see the time separation systematically increasing with distance with the trend expected from their respective velocities. That change would not happen if they were P waves from two distinct events, in which case the time separation would stay the same.

You are aware that PM converted this to audio and we hear two distinct and separate booms, right? And if what you are saying is true, then why don't we hear two separate and distinct booms for every other earthquake then? It is always just one boom, and is followed by rumble usually for bigger events. Smaller events just boom and die out quick.

Also, if that's the case, then why was it determined last time that it was two separate events? Shall I write back to Global CMT and tell them that the PNSN director was mistaken?

lol, funny. We get nearly identical signatures in nearly the same location, along the same divergent boundary, caused most probably by the same mechanism, and yet now all of sudden it's one quake instead of two?

No, no and no. Sorry John, I am sticking with two events here. I have provided every reason it is two events, and you have not refuted my specific points about them. That high end just doesn't appear out of nowhere again, for the same quake. Or the low end either.

I guess we can agree to disagree.

I am surprised that you'd interpret waves traveling at the expected time and expected velocity of the S waves from a known earthquake to instead be P waves from a whole separate magnitude 5 earthquake that no one had spotted.

Oops, magnitude 6 event. I did look at the records of several dozen different stations before deciding my opinion, both horizontal and vertical records.

Yeah, it's not like any major ordeal if we do disagree. So what.

But could you please explain then the points I have raised about this event in the preceeding posts about this. Did you listen to the audio file?

I'm being pressured to go have breakfast, and didn't look carefully at all the spectrograms and audio files. But I think the point on which we're disagreeing is whether sharp onsets and similar frequency content can characterize both P and S waves. S waves can have relatively sharp onsets, and the spectra did show that the second burst was a bit lower in frequency content than the first, as expected for S vs P waves.

Ok. I of course take seriously into consideration what you have to say. I will revisit it myself, and pull the data. I have to go too now. Let's hook up again later maybe. Have a good breakfast! TTYS.

A last suggestion before brunch - pull out some stations close and far from the epicenter and compare the time difference between the 2 bursts of energy.

May be a bit high, GFZ has 5.9 on the main list but 5.5 on the link page (must just have revised it) and USGS 5.6
hard to tell from my local LISS station graph, when you compare it with the Drake Passage 6.2 it doesn't look near as big as a 6.0 SNZO Graph
Nice clean wiggle for DP though, you can see the P, S and LR waves arriving quite clearly, not so easily for Kuril
SNZO - Drake Passage =7,684 km
SNZO- Kuril Islands =10,250 km
2566km difference

I wouldn't have even picked it for a 5.9, the depth gets me every time on first glance of the graph
SNZO 10-02-2012

edit on 14-4-2012 by muzzy because: (no reason given)

I note looking at your copy of the phase data that there is a 4 second difference for the S wave from what I used on the SNZO
USGS Phase Data = 01:55:38
USGS Arrival Time Calculator = 01:55:42

I don't usually bother checking the phase data on USGS for SNZO as doesn't always show on the list, URZ shows more often.

4 seconds = life or death?

edit on 14-4-2012 by muzzy because: (no reason given)

just sayin, accuracy and consistency isn't one of USGS's strong points
