Here's a quake that happened on Saturday. It was just posted. It hasn't been reviewed yet.
It's just creepy is all because it's so close to Sleeply Hollow. Ooooohhh. 12 miles. Near a bridge. Ooooohhh.
The epicenter has oil fields everywhere around it.ooo The epicenter is the same general area as that giant mine blast. I ignore the east of Wyoming because of all the blasts. I saw the signature but it looks like mining. But, it is not 3.8 M I think. I tried to find a trace of it in South Dakotah but couldn't. So....
Your guess is as good as anything.
It's the blue squiggle at the top right, top right- slide right.
Wyoming is going to catch fire one day. And wot stop burnin'.
I posted it because something ain't right. I think it's nothing really. it's a computer. oh well. back to sleepedit on 22-5-2012 by ericblair4891 because: (no reason given)edit on 22-5-2012 by ericblair4891 because: (no reason given)
There were booms, shaking, then the USGS comes in and post-dates the info on the site, showing there was a quake. Is it possible that there was a boom or some such thing there and this was posted afterwards to show it was a quake?
The first and foremost mission of UUSS is academic research. At the same time - because of its special facilities and expertise - UUSS carries a major burden to meet the needs and expectations of a host of users in Utah and the Intermountain region for earthquake information.
The Network operates from the Earth and Space Sciences Department at the University of Washington in Seattle, and its data archiving is abetted by the Data Management Center of IRIS Consortium in Seattle. It is the second largest of the regional seismic networks in the ANSS (Advanced National Seismic System) and with more data than the networks in Alaska, Utah, Nevada, Hawai'i and the New Madrid area.
The network is funded primarily by the US Geological Survey which stations its own staff on the campus although the network is ostensibly managed by UW staff. Additionally the Department of Energy and the State of Washington provide funding.
This is an old quake that was just posted.

A magnitude 7 or 7.5 earthquake would likely fracture that pool, and disaster would ensue, says Arnie Gundersen, a nuclear engineer with Fairewinds Energy Education who has visited the site.
The 1,535 spent fuel rods would become exposed to the air and would likely catch fire, with the most-recently added fuel rods igniting first.
The incredible heat generated from that blaze, Gundersen said, could then ignite the older fuel in the cooling pool, causing a massive oxygen-eating radiological fire that could not be extinguished with water.
"So the fear is the newest fuel could begin to burn and then we'd have a conflagration of the whole pool because it would become hotter and hotter. The health consequences of that are beyond where science has ever gone before," Gundersen told CTVNews.ca in an interview from his home in Vermont.
There are a couple of possible outcomes, Gundersen said.
Highly radioactive cesium and strontium isotopes would likely go airborne and "volatilize" -- turning into a vapour that could move with the wind, potentially travelling thousands of kilometres from the source.
The size of those particles would determine whether they remained in Japan, or made their way to the rest of Asia and other continents.
"And here's where there's no science because no one's ever dared to attempt the experiment," Gundersen said. "If it flies far enough it goes around the world, if the particles stay a little bigger, they settle in Japan. Either is awful."
Essentially, he said, Japan is sitting on a ticking time bomb.

Is it any wonder people are confused about magnitudes!
I am having doubts about LDEO. Remember that they were completely against the swim with the Indonesian quakes 8.6 and 8.2 which they had as 8.0 and 7.8 respectively.

The M6.4 at LDEO is from their surface-wave matched filter detector. I'm not sure how it related to their CMT solutions, which generally appear slower.
I just checked, and their CMT has shown up as M6.1

Researchers have discovered New Zealand's earthquake-prone landscape is even more unstable than previously thought, recording deep tremors lasting up to 30 minutes on its biggest fault line.
Scientists measured the so-called "creeping earthquakes" when they investigated a puzzling lack of major seismic jolts along a section of the Alpine Fault, which runs the length of the South Island. The quakes, which caused no surface damage, occurred 20-45 kilometres (12-28 miles) beneath the Earth's crust and continued for as long as half an hour, much longer than ordinary earthquakes.
