was up on Geonet Rapid right away, already 2 minutes had past by the time I got the page up

Get the feeling that things are heating up in the North Island and around the islands...sorta like a line thru the Kermadecs.

Hope it's helping to release build-up energies in stages, rather than a mega release.

I have been racking my brains ever since that quake happened. USGS had that as 5.8, and yet I've been getting S-wave readouts from a much bigger quake, all over the place. Couldn't figure that out. Holy mother of upgrades, from 5.8 to 6.7, nearly a full order of magnitude.

Makes sense with no prior history of large or great quakes in the vicinity since record-keeping began. I thought the same thing, "How could USGS have missed THAT?"

EMSC still have 5.8mb.

I don't think that is a 6.7 either.
 

Can't check anything as it looks as if IRIS is down.
SCARDEC have 6.6 Mw

Not sure if that 5.8 quake at the Hikurangi Plateau ( NE of East Cape, NZ) on July 21st may have triggered a swarm to the NE of the mainshock or this is aftershocks of that, the multiple 4's really only started yesterday, although Geonet Rapid have been posting hits all week from the area ( automatic readings, unconfirmed)

OK I'll bite............... why?

Well what I find interesting is how USGS have taken an ML reading and converted it to mb and the mb has ended up being larger than ML, the dead opposite of what happens for quakes USGS report from New Zealand (and probably other places as well)
How can this be?
for the one at 2012/07/27 21:19:30
The International Institute of Earthquake Engineering and Seismology of Iran (IIEES) has 4.1ML location uncertainty +/- lat 3.2km, long 5.6km
USGS has mb = 4.2 ( 14) ML = 3.8 ( 2) location uncertainty +/- 24.7 km

for the other one at 2012/07/27 21:39:10
IIEES has 4.2ML location uncertainty +/- lat 5km, long 7.6km
USGS has mb = 4.4 ( 27) ML = 3.9 ( 4) location uncertainty +/- 20.4 km

given the location accuracy alone, I'd go with the Iranians estimates.

EMSC just as confusing
4.3mb for both
21:19:28
21:39:06

Stop teasing me into looking at USGS, I'm trying to avoid their inaccurate reporting
edit on 28-7-2012 by muzzy because: (no reason given)


ETA: Just to test my observation I went through the "light-strong" quakes for the last few days on the USGS 7 days list and checked the ones that had an ML reading in the phase data.
Actually its about 50/50 whether they go up or down when comparing ML to mb

mb LOWER
Bosnia and Herzegovina ~ mb = 4.6 ( 27) ML = 4.7 ( 62)
Volcano Islands ~ mb = 4.6 ( 1) ML = 4.9 ( 2)
SW Siberia ~ mb = 4.7 ( 59) ML = 5.1 ( 2)
Mariana Islands ~ mb = 5.4 (346) ML = 6.0 ( 4)
Tonga ~ mb = 5.4 (193) ML = 6.0 ( 4)
Kermadec Islands ~ mb = 4.9 ( 49) ML = 5.1 ( 10)
Philippines ~ mb = 4.8 ( 67) ML = 5.3 ( 8)
Philippines ~ mb = 4.5 ( 1) ML = 4.6 ( 8)
Simeule ~ mb = 4.9 ( 16) ML = 5.2 ( 4)

mb HIGHER
Guatemala ~ mb = 4.2 ( 45) ML = 3.8 ( 7)
Guatemala ~ mb = 4.7 (201) ML = 4.3 ( 10)
New Britain ~ mb = 4.9 (129) ML = 4.4 ( 4)
Philippines ~ mb = 4.4 ( 16) ML = 3.9 ( 18)
Loyalty Islands ~ mb = 5.2 (129) ML = 5.0 ( 2)
Taiwan ~ mb = 4.7 ( 1) ML = 4.2 ( 18)
Hindu Kush ~ mb = 4.7 ( 33) ML = 3.8 ( 1)
N Indian Ocean ~`mb = 6.0 (198) ML = 5.9 ( 14)

SAME
NI New Zealand ~ mb = 4.9 ( 1) ML = 4.9 ( 29) [Geonet was 5.2ML]
edit on 28-7-2012 by muzzy because: (no reason given)


so a 3.8ML in the Hindu Kush is 4.7mb, but a 3.8ML in Guatemala is a 4.2mb
Its beyond me

Never scared of a challenge I've registered with NEID (Japan) and have access to all their data now, I am thinking of doing an interactive map of the data behind this map, or individual daily maps if its easier on my laptop's memory,
the data available is from Jun 03, 2002 ~ Jul 24, 2012
461 events for the 24th July

Is there any interest from here in this info?

That's quite a cluster. Thanks for posting it, WOQ.
There is a wide range of depths given for such a tight cluster geographically. Depths ranging from 11km to 49km. Weird.
I'm still undecided whether these ionosperic maps are useful at "predicting" large quakes, but the current map does show a mildly anomalous reading over the Puerto Rico area.
(higher than it should be considering it is the middle of the night there--the strongest readings on the map are where the sun is heating the atmosphere--usually)

The ionospheric anomaly over the Tohoku earthquake region a few days prior to the March 11, 2011 was intriguing--so I watch these maps periodically.
