I was wondering if somebody could explain how a earthquake can register as with a depth of 1 metre. I use the quakes app on my phone and the depth is actually 0.1 km


That is actually 100 metres not one metre, even so that is an impossibly shallow earthquake. Not saying it is not possible but in many places 100m would not be into solid bedrock. You can get 300ft (100m) deep glacial deposits around here so you would not be getting an earthquake in that.

 

I note that the depth is now 2.3 km (1.4 miles) so it sounds as if your 0.1km was a computer miscalculation. Computers are not very bright and make lots of mistakes. I used to make lots of mistakes, but now with the advent of computers it is them that make them

Abstract

Despite four decades of research, the origin of Valles Marineris on Mars, the longest trough system in the solar system, remains uncertain. Its formation mechanism has been variably related to rifting, strike-slip faulting, and subsurface mass removal. This study focuses on the structural geology of Ius and Coprates Chasmata in southern Valles Marineris using THEMIS (Thermal Emission Imaging System), Context Camera (CTX), and HiRISE (High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment) images. The main result of the work is that the troughs and their plateau margins have experienced left-slip transtensional deformation. Syntectonic soft-sediment deformation suggests the presence of surface water during the Late Amazonian left-slip tectonics in Valles Marineris. The total left-slip motion of the southern Valles Marineris fault zone is estimated to be 150–160 km, which may have been absorbed by east-west extension across Noctis Labyrinthus and Syria Planum in the west and across Capri and Eos Chasmata in the east. The discovery of a large-scale (>2000 km in length and >100 km in slip) and rather narrow (

Thank You for bringing this to our attention! Sooo the question of the day is (for me anyway) They spent how much to try and give us this speculation... Give me a F...ing break... They can't even figure out our tectonics here on the planet we live on... and They want to feed us this cr*p.. Really? Don't ya think the money spent on going to Mars to study Tectonics and such would be much better placed at our imminent danger zones to the Folk HERE ON EARTH?

Sorry don't mean to kill the messenger.. Thanks for bs msm report.

Next up.. Killer Quake on Mars kills 0 but damages and destroys billions of dollars of seismic instrument and research instruments, This is a setback for the outer space agency which thought it had just discovered resources on the red planted that could sub stain earths energy needs in the future. Accordingly, we must work together to account for this major disaster to re fund our further attempts at this project. nuff said..

Rant Over.

Deep earthquake with 7.5 magnitude hits off eastern Russia, north of Japan: USGS

The arc extends about 2,100 km from Hokkaido, Japan, along the Kuril Islands and the Pacific coast of the Kamchatka, Russia, peninsula to its intersection with the Aleutian arc near the Commander Islands, Russia. It marks the region where the Pacific plate subducts into the mantle beneath the Okhotsk microplate, a part of the larger North America plate. This subduction is responsible for the generation of the Kuril Islands chain and the deep offshore Kuril-Kamchatka trench. Relative to a fixed North America plate, the Pacific plate is moving northwest at a rate that decreases from 83 mm per year at the arc's southern end to 75 mm per year near its northern edge.

Subduction zones such as the Kuril-Kamchatka arc are geologically complex and produce numerous earthquakes from multiple sources. Deformation of the overriding North America plate generates shallow crustal earthquakes, whereas slip at the interface of the plates generates interplate earthquakes that extend from near the base of the trench to depths of 40 to 60 km. At greater depths, Kuril-Kamchatka arc earthquakes occur within the subducting Pacific plate and can reach depths of nearly 700 km. Since 1900, eight great earthquakes (M8.3 or larger) have occurred along the Kuril-Kamchatka arc. They are the M8.4 1923 Kamchatka earthquake, the M8.6 1933 Sanriku-oki, Japan earthquake, the M9.0 1952 Kuril Island earthquake, the M8.4 1958 Kuril Island earthquake, the M8.5 1963 Kuril Island earthquake, the M8.4 1994 Kuril Island earthquake, the M8.3 2003 Hokkiado, Japan earthquake, and the M8.3 2006 Kuril Island earthquake.

Any tsunami report. Woke up to the new little alert on my quake alert app.

Finally a 7, hopefully everyone is safe.

Take a look
USGS has 2 Mag 7.3's listed now, 70 seconds apart.

This is going to take some time for the humans to sort out. The software is going bonkers. I really don't believe those two Mag 5's happened in California.

No current Tsunami watch yet..,

Geez, I was just thinking yesterday that I should post a 7+ prediction for that region around the middle of the month!


Guess the depth will dampen any tsunami possibility.

Not liking the sudden California quakes popping up though.

Don't think it's going to be the last of the bigger ones over the next few days

Both magnitude 7.3 earthquakes have been reviewed by a seismologist.

They were really deep! 582 and 625.7 km. That depth should limit the tsunami threat.

ETA: The California quake listings have disappeared, as expected.
