however on that page they quote their own reading of 6.5Mw
which is just off the coast there, I guess it's fair enough for them to say that's where it is
Personally, I always use the Lamont number, if it is available, as Goran has included lots of nice corrections and carefully calibrated it - he's an artist. But for fast, good numbers, the USGS page is great, plus I can call them with questions, should they arise.
Earthquake movies, 1D and 3D synthetic seismograms for seismologists
Global ShakeMovie is Princeton University's Near Real Time Global Seismicity Portal (Tromp et al. 2010). It has been designed to present seismologists with near real time 1D and 3D synthetic seismograms for recent earthquakes. These synthetics are the results of simulations carried out on a large computer cluster. 1D synthetic seismograms are calculated based upon normal mode summation. Movies and 3D synthetic seismograms are calculated based upon the software package SPECFEM3D_GLOBE.
Synthetics (3D and 1D) will be available for download 7.5-11 hours (M=7.5) after receipt of notification from the Global CMT Project.
33.3... + 33.3... + 33.3... = 99.999999999.... that little bit left over...
The little bit left over isn't 0.1%. it's 0.000000000000..... at some point just before end of everything ... 0001.
Thank you for the Popo siesmo. Since I'm unfamiliar with it I'm not sure about what I'm seeing
it appears a low pressure system crossed the North Atlantic recently. But I can't be positive.
