In N. Indiana and our house just shook,
felt like a quake for sure but didn't last long.
Anyone else feel this?

And it just happened again. Not as strong
this time.

Just so you know cd, right after I saw your post I went on GEE and chose some stations in Indiana. I did appear to show some kind of strange event, registering around 90 microns/sec. It also had a very slight "follow up event". Honestly it looked like some kind of man made event, but I can't be sure. And 90 microns/sec is really not that much, so not sure what is going on.

Thank you very much - not
sure what to think either.

You know actually, kind of looked like a snow avalanche signature, so please check your local news, papers, etc for any such thing in your area. Might help explain it.

We are expecting a snow storm
and it is probably already in the
state. Will keep an eye on the
news - you have been very helpful.
Much appreciated.

P457 cleaned

Looks pretty flat to me. Raw plots are no good. You need detrended/cleaned plots

Here is P456

If raw plots are no good, then what are they doing published on the web, and why did this organization invest millions in equipment and personnel to obtain them?

PNSN's best guess on this recent activity is that it was an ice avalanche followed by a big chunch chattering down the side.....problem is, this configuration is backwards from what is normally seen. usually, it is the chattering building up to the avalanche.


Well I have to say that is EXACTLY what it sounds like. Big rumble followed by chatter getting slower and slower.

RCS201201811755.zip

Zipped to make it a bit smaller but it is still a 3.3Mb download.

Spectrum of sound file


Spectrum of main 'rumble'. Note no very low 1Hz signal. Not seismic signature at all.


Spectrum of the 'blips'. Quite high frequency (relatively) 5 - 15Hz

To obtain them, de-trend them and clean them giving you the steps taken to get the results which is correct procedure rather than just showing the cleaned version with no idea what the spread was before the adjustments were made.

Maybe I should have said 'raw plots are no good to us' since we do not have the facilities to properly analyse them.

.....did some ground shifting? Happens here before big storms


When? Is this documented? Which areas?

This is quite important as the theory of earthquakes being affected by atmospheric pressure seems to be appearing more and more and anything that can assist in documenting this is useful.

People in Taupo have reported feeling an earthquake this morning, although it was only a magnitude [color=ECD672 ]2.3 on the Richter Scale.
It happened just before 7.30, and was centred 10 kilometres north of the city, at a depth of just three kilometres
.

Talk about being sensitive


Still, when you are living inside the cone of a super volcano you'd be on edge too

nice S-wave of that one on LISS SNZO at 3:30

Looking at the size of that I'd say the traces I haven't been able to ID on SNZO have all been from down that way, some of them are even smaller (but still the same shape) so possibly less that the Mag 4.5 cut-off point that USGS has.
There are usually a couple a day I can't pin down from the lists.

This is a real dangerous location for so many shakes in just 1,5 hours. This region has produced many fatal quakes in the past. I hope that those are not foreshocks

You beat me to it!


Anyways, a decent jolt, that one. Showed up nicely on a couple of seismos I'm watching on GEE. One is in Memphis, TN, the other in Bauxite, AR (just SW of Little Rock):
