Mag 6 from EMSC and GFZ Potsdam.

Can't break the quiet cycle yet. Need to wait a few more days. Not close enough to 21 Dec.

If the oil companies claim fracking doesn't cause earthquakes, then they are knowingly suppressing data and are flat out lying. As proof, you need only look to the Canadian drillers who have admitted the truth.

So for those keeping score, the British and the Canadians have stated that fracking -don't let them say it's only injection- injection causes them as well, but- fracking causes earthquakes. And therefore, you shouldn't be conducting the practice in seismic areas. And, if the freakin' earthquake keeps shaking, you'd better think about stopping.
"I'm yelling at you Oklahoma!!!"
nudge nudge, wink wink

If you check, they've had a bunch this week.

Something different.

I am almost complety 100% sure that there is a gobal mechanism to our shifting crust. Yes, the plaste are moving and have direct local consequences. But, more to the point, each plate is acting on adjacent, and on far away seismic systems. ie Alaska rearranges Yellowstone, the double 8's off Sumatra, and now it seems we have the 8.8M in Chile shuffling the deck.

We are experiencing a major seismic storm. It really started around 2004 and is continuing today. This cluster is not slowing or getting ready to relax. No. I figure we're miday through. For whatever reason. And I don't want to argue what's next in way of a big thrust. I think the odds are on Cascadia. But. It doesn't matter much with regards to a bigger issue. These coming siemic shifts will cause destruction and distress. Mostly, the danger lay in the tsunami. But even this will pale in comparison to what will follow. Sorry for being such a downer. But I've been working on a big puzzle lately and the noodle is over cooked and leaking through the colander.

After all is said and done. These seismic shifts will usher in the next phase. The volcano. So, this means my debate with Puterman about climate change is distraction and a red herring. Yes, it's getting warmer. But at the end of the day, (you ever notice that lots of middle east politicians and analyists use that term) at the end of the day, it's going to get a whole lot cooler.

There is something distinctly odd about that quake entry

There is no travel times map, no phase data and no moment tensors other than the initiate one on the P wave. Why are they not publishing anything on it? Will go to 6? Are they just holding off because their lap dogs are disputing it?

posted on Nov, 29 2012 @ 06:37 PM
This will be quick and painless. I hope.
It seems my mind is slipping to volcanoes again. It's Guatemala's fault. It's seismic off shore. And, the volcano is acting up. I so much wish I could rant about the fact it burped with a full moon and Jupiter strolling together above. All a coininky dink?

I should really shift gears and post on volcano watch. So, I really should be expanding my argument there. Coinkodently, I had stumbled upon a describtion of a 1902 eruption today as I research other things. Like, the 13th Century, and the 6th. and.... wow. there's no coinkydent anymore. least not with me. i just erased some stupidity. edit.

Yes, Oklahoma. Four earthquakes there today. By comparison, let's look at Yellowstone. (jepardy theme song)

Yellowstone has had two. So, Oklahoma has had 200% more earthquakes than an active volcano.

UPDATE to post by PuterMan

The calm before the storm?

The image is way too big for ATS - nearly 1.5 Mb - but I wanted to record the flat calm on LISS before all hell breaks loose.

I made a post to preserve the list as it is right now. The 'lost' hurricane of Greenland shows and something odd about the Kermedecs.

posted on Dec, 1 2012 @ 04:00 AM
The Kermedecs recorder looks as if it is either faulty or if it was in Yellowstone I would say it had ice on the transmitter but I doubt if that is the case in this instance.

I can't imagine that 29°S at an elevation of 60 metres (official) or even 215 metres (Google Earth) would be cold enough to cause ice on the transmitter. Over to you NZ folks on that one.

quite likely a fault with the LISS system, assuming they use the same siesmograph machine as GNS does up there

a muzzy mega map upload

for those who have restricted ISP capacity or can't be bothered to wait for the pages on eqarchives to load 11 months worth of data before you can see the first map, here are a few of the Nov maps just uploaded this morning
warning: the mag1+ maps and the Pollino map are still over 1MB each

New Zealand 3+ interactive map
Greece 3+ interactive map

Italy 3+ interactive map
Italy mag 1+ interactive map, 1385 events, (those fellas need all the archiving help they can get)

Turkey 3+ map
I can't do a Turkey mag1+, as I missed the first 8 days downloads (keep forgetting to do that)

going to go over Bozburun Aciklari Mulga Swarm, Turkey (Dodecanese Islands) again today, getting mixed results from NOA and KOERI, I'll probably stick with koeri as they seem to have more events, quite a difference in latitude for the mag 3+'s anyway, and I just noticed the name shows up 09/11/2012 too, way before I thought the swarm started on 25/11

RSOE has it as a 6.4.

UPDATE to post by PuterMan

Here is the SANVU (Vanuatu) recorder for yesterday. Busy isnt it

And here is the Mag 6 today (UTC)

Does not look much bigger does it? But what happens if I standardise the scale.

Here is yesterday at 1000 x 1200 and 0.6 vertical scale

And here - at the same scale - is today

Take a look at the size of the 00:16:45 on the correctly scaled chart for today. Where is THAT in the listings?

oh yes I can

I've found the micro/ very minors today.

You click on the "View on GoogleMaps" blue text above the list, and then when that eventually loads, click on the little icon in the bottom right corner of the map "Export List" it goes back to Jan 2003.
Its just 3's for the first few months, but will be real handy , I'll be able to do a final "Van" update and I noticed a few others such as a 6.4 and a big clump of aftershocks at Bingol (east of Van) in May 2003 just for starters,
Hmmmm 9 years x 12 month = 108 maps

I think I'll have to make a new address for Turkey, too many maps for one page there.(just done that, eqarchivesturk)

Found all that while doing this

Bozburun Aciklari, Mulga, Turkey (Dodecanese Islands) Swarm 08/11 to 02/12/2012 interactive map
I did a page on it

A Swarm of earthquakes has been occuring in the Mediterranean Sea near Bozburun Aciklari in the Province of Mulga, Turkey.
The area is also known as the Dodecanese Islands by the Greeks, and is north of the island of Rhodes.
at the time mark of 543 hours (22.6 days) since the first event on 08/11/2012 at 22:06:38hrs UTC, a 2.3 ML quake at Lat/Long 36.5968, 27.9383, there have been 794 quakes,
mag1=216, mag2=551, mag3=21,
and 6 quakes over magnitude four have been recorded
Mag, When, time mark since swarm started [hh:mm:ss]
4.8, 26/11/2012 17:35:41, 427:29:03
4.4, 24/11/2012 21:04:16, 382:57:38
4.3, 24/11/2012 21:31:14, 383:24:36
4.0, 09/11/2012 04:46:14, 6:39:36
4.0, 24/11/2012 21:35:21, 383:28:43
4.0, 25/11/2012 08:51:45, 394:45:07
Total energy released= 447.281 tons of TNT

FWIW I was wondering what the translation for Aciklari was, did a GT and it means " deficits" in English
I like it Bozburun Deficits, sounds a bit like the Deccan Traps in India

This one is smack dab on the subduction zone.

Would not surprise me at all for this area to give a 7+ as an early Christmas present!

UPDATE to post by PuterMan

I am wondering why USGS put this Vanuatu quake up to 6.4, followed swiftly by EMSC doing the same.

If you look at the Centroid and Body wave moment tensors they are 6.2 and 6.2 respectively. The 6.4 is derived from the Mwb which averages at 6.34 based on 69 counts. For starters why wind that up to 6.4, and secondly GFZ Potsdam have now come down to 6.1. There is also an Mwc of 6.2

Once the troops get back in on Monday this may go down.
