The two 4.8's are wrong as listed now, and note those have not been reviewed. I estimate it was one 4.3 or so, again, after the last 4.3.

As listed:
MAP 4.8 2012/08/26 23:34:48 32.891 -115.697 5.2 SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
MAP 4.8 2012/08/26 23:33:25 33.039 -115.523 12.2 SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

The first one was reviewed it says.

lol, things are moving faster than they can review them.
edit on Sun Aug 26th 2012 by TrueAmerican because: (no reason given)


lol, yup, *poof* second 4.8 now disappeared from the USGS listing. And I still don't agree with the 4.8- I think it was less.
edit on Sun Aug 26th 2012 by TrueAmerican because: (no reason given)


Well, it was 10 km away back in the other spot...
Ok, maybe I'll give em that 4.8.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

reply to post by Olivine
 

The SCEC (SoCal Earthquake Data Center) has that one as a 4.6, but the next one as a 4.8:

3.8 2012/08/26 16:36:58 33.052N 115.533W 7.7 8 km ( 5 mi) E of Westmorland, CA
4.8 2012/08/26 16:34:48 32.891N 115.697W 5.2 17 km (11 mi) WSW of Brawley, CA
4.6 2012/08/26 16:33:25 33.038N 115.526W 11.0 9 km ( 5 mi) N of Brawley, CA


I'm reposting the link to the above source as it seems to be updating faster than USGS.

And I have to post it anyway as I've quoted from there.
Oh btw, just a polite reminder for anyone who posts data/text from another site: please use the "ex" tags to quote it (namely [ex]quoted text[/ex] )and also give the link to your source. (Ditto link for pics if they're not your own.) Thanks!
(ATS/TAN T&Cs require us to provide source links and use the right quote tags.)

Thanks for your reply Mike.
I checked out your emsc link - (didn't think of looking there) :-(
The global incident map has an impressive array of big red dots, but I see the Cali ones are slowing down now.
Roll on "hindsight"!

Thanks Mike.
Congrats on the Mod tap--you're a perfect choice.

I forgot to list my sources for the pics I uploaded on page 202--I was just going too fast.
First pic is from GEE software on my compy (available for download from the University of South Carolina), 2nd and 3rd are from USGS real-time earthquake page, zoomed and cropped.

Yeah, I reckon they're pretty busy over in ol' USGS right now. And I bet they're grumbling about why this stuff always seems to happen on a weekend or over the Christmas break. (One of the bigger Yellowstone swarms ran over the New Year -- a few years back, I mean.)

And I wasn't really modding with my comment about posting linkies to sources and using ex tags and so on. I was just -- ummm -- kind of doing what I've been doing for years anyway... You know, just a friendly reminder sort of thing.
(And yeah, I forget sometimes myself.)

Oh, I know what you mean! Plenty of times I've had to go back and edit my posts to put in the source attribution.


Back to the main topic (though the attribution side is important), this SoCal swarm is certainly one of the most significant in the region in a good while. We've had sources quoted that suggest similar swarms 40 years ago and also in the 1930s, so I'd be interested if anyomne could do some digging and see how they compared.

I'd do it myself but it's 2:20-something am here and I am beat...

I'm torn as to which seismogram display is giving me the best visual of time, magnitude and duration but I'm leaning towards the Vineyard Canyon one.

Thanks, Olivine. The "tap" was a pleasant surprise. I'm still in the early learning phase so I'm not doing a great deal yet. But it's good to be involved and able to help out in some way.

Also thanks for noting those attributions. If you wish I can check up with a senior mod tomorrow (I mean later today
) and have your post edited to include the info, but I think what you've noted here will probably suffice in this case.


But for now, I have to say goodnight to everyone.

Hope you all stay safe, wherever you are.

Truly.

Just before I go...


Sageturkey, there's two things you can try to get more of the image (if you're using a win-based system). One is to hit F11. This should remove any tool bars you have, so the web page fills the entire screen. You can then hit PrtSc to capture as usual. (Just hit F11 again to get your toolbars etc back.)

The second -- if you have a mouse with a wheel -- just hold down the CTRL key and roll the wheel to change the size of the image on your screen. You can then capture at that size.
And you can use this in conjunction with F11.

Okay, I'm outta here. Nite, all...

Very interesting observation, now I'm unsure where to discuss this event though

Will be monitoring both threads quietly, as anything I have to add at this point is trivial. (Actually, anything I've added thus far has probably been trivial but what the hay, I wanted in on the conversation...)

Wanted to thank Mike without adding a second post if it's within the decorum:

Top notch instructions good sir, top notch. I totally forgot about the zoom. After capturing the whole pic, I decided that a link was good enough and wouldn't take up unnecessary page space with a screen shot of a webicorder.
