Not sure why I can't find this 4.0 earthquake in China (June 18) on USGS.

Just thought it was interesting. Off the west of Sardinia.

Because it is a 4.0 and by default unless significant the minimum quake the USGS looks at outside of the US and territories is 4.5 magnitude.

By the way about the same goes for EMSC outside Europe.

Here is a puzzler. A quake near Vanuatu - possibly or even probably a teleseism - at 06:06+ today and clearly visible on SANVU: SANVU.G.00.BHZ.2012.170

Not too far away in the ND network it is just visible still: LIFNC.ND.00.HHZ.2012.170

ETA 588 km between those 2 seismos so not that close. Nothing at HNR either.

Nothing reported for this time, or for earlier that could be it, from USGS, EMSC, GFZ or Vanuatu Geohazards Observatory. Anyone got any ideas???

HNZ channel there: SANVU.G.00.HNZ.2012.170 and HHZ channel: SANVU.G.00.HHZ.2012.170

Looks busy!

 


Definitely a telesism - I am guessing around 200 km distant or more - can't see a clear P/S

Low flat signal over a longish time.



Frequency, after a bit of noise removal, looks good for a distant quake.



And it sounds good as well: dl.dropbox.com...

could be this one 4.7 North of Fiji
yeah I know, its siesme.nc, but hey the time matches and all they are doing is what the rest do, try and figure it out from the graphs.


edit:I'll run it through the TravelTimCalc and see if it matches the SANVU trace
edit on 18-6-2012 by muzzy because: (no reason given)


Hmmm inconclusive
travel arrival time
code - time(s) - dy hr mn sec
Pn - 135.43 - 0 6 6 47
S - 245.69 - 0 6 8 37

the S wave looks earlier than that on the graph

heres the full result TTC

Yup I think you are right. That seems to match. Wonder why that was not on the Vanuatu observatory - or anyone else for that matter.

Thanks.

ETA: I see my problem is probably the depth. I was not accounting for that.

NOT inconclusive at all. If I am reading that right you show 06:06:47 arrival.

Look at this - right on the button!



Here is the full trace

Wow thats pretty accurate

how did you get the trace so well defined?

It was the S wave that threw me off. at 06:08 whatever, well past the end of the trace you are showing

Maybe we dismissed sieme.nc too quickly eh.

They do get some wild locations though sometimes

I can either look at it in my program - expanding it as needed - or that particular one was after transfer to Audacity

They certainly do but they seem to be the only ones who picked this up. There also seems to be quite a lot of activity in the area which is being missed. I shall have a look in a couple of days and see what I can identity. I think the problem is that SANVU is out there on it's own. Two more instruments are needed to triangulate and the NC ones are a bit far away.

SANVU BHZ and HNZ channels side by side

No aftershocks so hopefully people will be able to get some sleep.

Had friends on FB saying their pets were freaking out before it happened.
