as deep and north to may 28, 6.7 mag.

Of note is that LDEO doesn't list that one. Skips it. But released a moment tensor(earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eqinthenews/2012/usb000a0z0/neic_b000a0z0_gcmt.php)

Many events happened to show a disconnect.

USGS missed CENTRAL MID-ATLANTIC RIDGE after it, as happens a lot.

What showed explicitly there's a different methodology about the page and tensors was Sumatra's double 8 mag quakes.

The page pinned the 2nd quake as upper 7 while moment tensor pinned as another 8.

I guess it is because LDEO is looking at the surface waves as opposed to the centroid tensors.

That last one totted up to 5.816 mb so using the conversion that is a bit over 6.0 Mw (6.0613)

Abstract

Earthquake moment tensors reflecting seven years of global seismic activity (2004–2010) are presented. The results are the product of the global centroid-moment-tensor (GCMT) project, which maintains and extends a catalog of global seismic moment tensors beginning with earthquakes in 1976. Starting with earthquakes in 2004, the GCMT analysis takes advantage of advances in the mapping of propagation characteristics of intermediate-period surface waves, and includes these waves in the moment-tensor inversions. This modification of the CMT algorithm makes possible the globally uniform determination of moment tensors for earthquakes as small as MW = 5.0. For the period 2004–2010, 13,017 new centroid-moment tensors are reported.

Highlights

► Presents moment-tensor solutions for 13,017 earthquakes. ► Describes improvements in the CMT analysis. ► Provides exhaustive description of CMT procedures. ► Discusses the scalar moment of the 2004 Sumatra earthquake. ► Analyzes the completeness of the Global CMT catalog.

Keywords

* Global seismicity;
* Centroid-moment tensor;
* Earthquakes

Yes you are right


I don't bother archiving any USGS below Mag 7, so just counted the list on the interactiverealtimeearthquakemapthingy set at 30 days and 6-10 mag. Of course it was June 2nd then so I missed that first one at Chiapas on May 1.

Muzzy, is this the summary poster page you were searching for, regarding the Italian quakes?

For dial-up users, the PDF link on the above page is 7.54 MB. But it is a pretty, 36 x 24 inch poster.

Many thanks for sharing this document. Some excellent graphs, maps and statistical analyses and well worth the time to read through it. Good resource material!

Best regards,

GFZ Potsdam have 6.0 Mw

There is no phase data on USGS yet. Their information can from the Alaskan Tsnuami warning centre and was confirmed by the Pacific Tsunami warning centre.

Thats the one

I guess it takes a bit of time to gather up all the info. I like those though..
I backtracke on the adress and found the list of pdf's agian, I see they di one for the first quake 6.0 marked 20052012 hazards.cr.usgs.gov...


The M7.2 December 28, 1908 Messina earthquake is the deadliest documented European earthquake. The combination of severe ground shaking and a local tsunami caused an estimated 60,000 to 120,000 fatalities


note to self "get on with that MWEProject" I've only gone back to 1910

It got reduced to 6.2 which is supposed is par for the course with USGS these days.

TA were you watching it? What did you think?

Yep, saw it come in, and could have reported, but knew it wasn't a super whammy- so didn't bother rushing the news. 200 microns/sec and 1.2e+6 counts at II.JTS in Costa Rica, and propagation strong to Central and South America stations. S-Waves seen in TN and beyond. I thought it was at least a 6.0. But the 4.7 earlier on the plate line is now arguably a foreshock, and the lack of aftershocks so far on the 6+ might mean the fault is not done yet in this case. Dunno, we'll see.

We have another 6.2 value from GeoAzur so that is 2 @ 6.2, 1 @ 6.0 but EMSC are still hanging out @ 5.9 Mw but it usually is morning time before they make a change to anything.

Strasbourg do not operate at night - too much else to do.

Ha ha they moved it


The EMSC seat was moved to the Laboratoire de Détection et de Géophysique (LDG) of the Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique (CEA) in Bruyères-le-Châtel (Essonne, France).

www.emsc-csem.org...

That was in 1993 so I am just a tad behind the times!

Fine, let's call it a 6.1 Mw and be done with it.


But I'm still a watchin in case this zone decides to unzip. Central America has been in the sights of a few seismologists as possibly being due for a bigger one, and that might have been it.

And EDIT: Update, small after shock just hit.

EDIT2: Another bigger aftershock just now/ They calling that a 6.6? No way...80 microns/sec at JTS and look where they have it postioned....nearly same spot as 6.1... That'll drop in mag, for sure.

So a 6.6, downgraded to a 6.2, and then 3 hours later or so, an actual 6.6 strikes.

Eyes on that area.
