I kind of have a bad feeling about Japan......Do some of the gurus see any kind of troubling pattern with this latest series of 4.9+ quakes in the last 10 days

Not necessarily, but I do have a bad feeling for Japan as well.

Edit: I'm no Guru, just my 1 cent.

I think Kermadec Islands region just got a pretty nice size quake...

Waiting... and can't estimate, but my self generated webi plot is showing a pretty good bit of red.
As in clipped.
And yes, I know I can control that, but still...

Here it is:


Red removed, so you can see the clip and more of the wave.

And already the aftershocks are coming in... Lol, I am reporting aftershocks already, and the USGS doesn't even have the main quake up yet.
I still love you though USGS, I promise.

Watch USGS

That looked bigger than a 5.7 to me, but I am no good with my tool set yet for estimating mags.

USGS

Useless set of phase data just appeared with no magnitudes on it. Wait for the tensor solutions.

Don't think RAO is too well RAO.IU.00.LHZ.2012.028

I am thinking 6.1 (and just possibly 6.0) based on SNZO.IU.00.VHZ.2012.028

Yikes! That last link shows a nasty little pattern.....

RAO has been messed up for quite a while, maybe this jolt will kick it back into line


The next two closest stations don't show a 6.2 to me, looks more like a 5.9

ETA GFZ have 5.8 manually revised but no magnitude type shown
as does EMSC but still mb.
quite a few 6mb's in the EMSC phase data

Correction: CHANNEL 00 on RAO has been messed up for quite a while, and I don't think ANYTHING will kick it back into line


But little did we know until recently that channel 10 BHZ at RAO has been working the whole time. It's been kind of hidden, as I couldn't access it with GEE. I found out through BUD. And now yes I can access it... Realtime data is fine on it, but just disregard channel 00 BHZ.

Hope this might help.
For the math people, in todays day and age,,
an interesting Formula for Energy Release.

Eth = VxdxTxK (from the Dynamics of Volcanism)

Eth is in Joules
V=volume in cubic kilo meters.
d=specific gravity (1.0)
T=temp. of Ejecta (500 degress Centigrade
K=Constant including the specific heat of the magma,
and the mechanical equivilent of heat,(8.37x10*to the 14th power,),,

thus the thermal energy released during the 79 A.D eruption was or approximately,,
2x10*too the 18th power Joules.
------------
May help in calculations,,being TONGA.

Me.

Good find TA
, that actually helps with what I was looking at when the Kermadec quake hit.
Southern East Pacific Rise.is one of the F_E Regions I'm keeping data on for a future page on the World Major Quakes blog, and there was a 5.1 on the East Pacific Rise earlier today UTC which occured before a 4.7 at the Kermadecs, but the signal seemed to arrive at SNZO after the Kermadec one. So that helps confirm what I thought I seen on the graph.
It took a while to figure out, as I think USGS were a bit low in the magnitude as well, GFZ had it 5.5Mw (automatic).
Interesting how the biggest S-wave trace is at SNZO despite being the furthest station away (out of the ones I saved) composite of graphs for East Pacific Rise quake 28-01-2012.

Actually i did but I had forgotten. When I went to add it to the database I found it was already there. I must have found it on BUD explorer - and I vaguely remember us having this conversation about the channels a while ago.

Ah, lookee here in QW 2011 a post by you: www.abovetopsecret.com...

Kermy 6.2 downgraded at USGS to 5.8Mw

Body-Wave Moment Tensor Solution even less, 5.7Mw

edit on 28-1-2012 by muzzy because: (no reason given)


ETA: the difference in energy released between a 6.2 and a 5.8 is 22,531.014 tonnes of TNT
6.2=30,089.039 TTNT
5.8= 7,558.025 TTNT
diff= 22,531.014 TTNT
how could they get it so wrong

You is da man muzzy.

I only got near with 6.0

I'm getting better at recognizing the size and distance from following SNZO on LISS.
The BUD graphs harder to figure out.
Todays SNZO will be harder, with all those aftershocks, getting the arrival times, I'll have to use the tt computer, that last 5.0 @ 20:00:35 hardly made a wiggle at all

usgs say arrival time at SNZO of the P wave was at 20:03:45, but you can't see where it starts, so I'll have to calculate the S-wave which you can see.

And that very quake/trace ( the 5.0) is why I say the East Pacific Rise quake earlier was way bigger than 5.1
