Whine 1. I think I'll delete that realtimeearthquakemapthingy that usgs came upwith.
but the public face seems a shambles these days.
This earthquake is 5.9 Mw or less from every other source on the planet EXCEPT USGS who themselves have it at 5.9 Mw in their tensor solutions. I have no idea what they are playing at but I would not mind betting this WILL be reduced later. It is a pretty stupid game they are playing really. Just makes them look incompetent.

See the Provider Magnitude Comparison 2012 tables The GS on the phase data page value appears to be the average of the Mwp values.
To the question : When a subduction event occurs is it the whole plate or could a middle section (say) splinter and just submerge or even a quadrant ?- do these subduction quakes have to be in their entirity or historically when our continents split apart did they move as one plate or in pieces ? (U.K. looks a bit in pieces !
