Quick link to share?

I'm seeing some twitter feeds saying 6.4 in Mexico City...

I was quite ready to say I was a silly billy and I was ready to admit nothing happened. Well, nothing "weird" happened. I noticed the quake in Mexico. Oh, I'm sure that it was normal and nothing to note. Unlike the two large groups of geese that are manouvering in a territorial war. I'm sure that Mexican quake was probably in the region of the 7.?M whatever, in Oaxaca. It must be an "aftershock". No. It's many kilometers away and I doubt it was an aftershock. These quakes. (the ongoing series that's playing out in my imagination) These quakes along the spine have been all along the spine. Starting with the latest big one in Alaska, we have gone down to the toes, and now were heading back north and have visited Mexico at midriff.

I was hesitant to post but after reading Eric's posts, what the hell.

It's too quiet. WAY too quiet in California and the west coast. Nothing 2.5 or higher for over 24 hours now. Not typical behavior for Cali and the west coast.

THIS IS NOT A CRITICISM OF YOUR COMMENT

First numbers (which does not take account of magnitudes)

California, Washington and Oregon (Quakes containing those names)

Washington and Oregon (Quakes containing those names)

California (Quakes containing that name)


Now energy, which does take account of magnitude. (All in jigglyjules)

California, Washington and Oregon (Quakes containing those names)

Washington and Oregon (Quakes containing those names)

California (Quakes containing that name)


Yes it is quiet at present, but nothing out of the ordinary?

Looking at the actual magnitudes flying about, the graph comes out with a completely flat linear trend (black) that unusually is match by the polynomial trend (red) which does show a very slight down turn at the end. This means that over 30days at least there is no change in the average magnitudes across that area.



As always it is a matter of perceptions against the figures and I am just as easily taken in by perceptions as well.

 

Just checking the last 24 hrs for California only, yes there is nothing above Mag 2.5 - but the tend is upwards for that short time frame.

I feel ya bro!!! It is only a matter of time before Cascadia blows. I do not know if it will be a 9.0 or not, but I have had this feeling for a year now.

I know feelings are about as reliable as FEMA, the morning after a juicy national disaster


Just sayin'

PET is about 470 km from the epicentre. I am not sure about this being 6.8. We shall see.

Been a few 6's in the last week eh
heres the interactive aftershocks map for the 11-11-2012 Thabeikkyin, Burma 6.6 at 95 hours (4days)
as expected there have been some smaller ones now, but not that many compared to what you might get if it had been in Japan say.
mag2= 0
mag3= 4
mag4= 9
mag5= 7
mag6= 1 = 119,786.624TTNT energy released
Total energy released = 135,364.956TTNT

I like your Mother Earth title, hehe, so appropriate.


It definitely sounds like 2 fractures to me--unless it is some sort of "echo" due to the distance from the seismometer. I get the impression that the 1st quakes movement, immediately relieved pressure/changed the local strain, allowing the 2nd quake. Similar to stacked charges while blasting: the shallower charge blows 1st, relieving the overburden so the 2nd, deeper charge can more fully blast the surrounding rock.

Really cool, though. I love listening to these. I have it looping.
Have you every thought of making a "song" out of a days' worth of earthquakes? April 11-12 of this year would boom.
Oooh, or a "compilation" album--each seismic region could have it's top 20 quakes sped up into a song.

Sorry for my loopiness--too much caffeine I suspect.

I have thought about it, but turning them into a song would be difficult. USGS have a few but they are not songs.

I have not given up on the idea but I would have to start collecting every event - which I am now trying to do for Mag 6+


I get the impression that the 1st quakes movement, immediately relieved pressure/changed the local strain, allowing the 2nd quake.


Yes my thoughts and there is some evidence of this in the shape of the S wave. There does seems to be some variance in the wave. I will dig out the waveform and try and explain what I mean.

In the meantime here is the spectrogram. You don't usually see two sharp peaks like that from one event.



Here is an earlier one from somewhere


edit on 16/11/2012 by PuterMan because: (no reason given)


 

Spectrograms in these ones (scroll down to them)
Magnitude 6.0 Guerrero. Mexico 15-Nov-12 (c000dsyl)

This one you do see the S wave but it is not a clearly defined as in the Kuril quake.
Magnitude 6.1 Coquimbo. Chile 14-Nov-12 (c000dski)

Maybe it is a feature of the distance from the epicentre?
