Thanks muzzy (I had already checked that site out)



I was just curious about the 'felt it' reports, and was hoping for some sort of scientific explanation

yeah, you would think they are all related to the same thing wouldn't you, ie expansion of the Australian Plate.

then out of left field .................... Mozambique

I hadn't looked at this page for a while, looks like they have taken it past the Beta version and this is going to be the style. I like it
About time!

Ahhh but Mozambique was not in that line of quakes.

Why would so many quakes line up like that in such a short time-span and so close in magnitude.

That still seems quite unusual, to this layman.

So that's the new version of the USGS website?

Hmmmm

At the Geysers geothermal complex. 4.4 then 2.6. I thought I read before that anything over a 2.5 is uncommon for the year usually - for the complex that is.

And hows this for precognitive abilities. The post by Olivine was early this morning, talking bout Cobb and Geysers. A few miles either way. Not bad.

Might be possible if you looked at stations a little farther south, near Clear Lake, The Geysers, Cobb Mtn and Lake Pillsbury.

To which I said;


You mean like in this area



I know we were talking about magmatic tremors, but heres an EQ right where you were talkin. smack dab. Hmmmm? precog?

This concerns the concept of an epicenter as the focal point of energy release. According to the Harvard dept of Seismology it isnt the focal point at all, and in fact the Fukushima F1 nuclear plant may have received a much greater shaking than we thought.

This website is fascinating for those studying the Tohoku EQ. seismology.harvard.edu...

On the above page they have a timelapse animation that is very informative. The pic below shows where the epicenter is, yet none of the three initial ruptures that make up the three accepted phases of the EQ were even touching the epicenter. So trying to figure EQ size by the time the EQ made its way from the epicenter doesnt work.





The figure on the left shows the relative amount of energy release from various locations that radiated energy during the first 25 minutes (darker orange showing higher energy release). The largest energy release occurs downdip of the epicentre, and the regions south of the epicentre release more energy than segments to the north (partially due to multiple large aftershocks on Mw 9.0 earthquake). The amount of energy release from different segments vary considerably (right), and the colours are not simple relative amplitude, but logarithm of the relative amplitude. Consequently, the saturation levels of the colour scale for the animation above is time dependent to bring out different episodes. Even though the segments are not continuous, the total extent of the collection of events is about 480 km, and the width is about 170 km.


Note that the second rupture produced the second shake that workers describe as the main shake. This is the rupture that did the most damage. The magnitude of this segment of the rupture is more indicative of what hit Daiichi.

I think this is more like what will happen when the CSZ goes. A series of ruptures that may end up producing a 9+ EQ, but doesn't have a centralized epicenter where the worst shaking is. In other words, what we may experience is a bunch of 7.5 level EQs spread up and down the coast as the zone ruptures.

This also explains why the damage wasn't as great as some thought it would be from a 9+ EQ.

Thanks for the link jAc. Looks fascinating and I do believe is connected to earthquakes as let's face it everything is connected. Better still it is another nail in the IPCC coffin.

This bit is really interesting!




Well, um at least I think it is. I don't think I have removed all the glaze from my eyeballs yet, but the optic nerve is more or less untwisted now. Sometimes I wish I had a brain.

What exactly causes the ecliptical orbits of Jupiter; and all the other planets?


That will be Nibiru then.


Or the Sun's evil brown dwarf twin.


Seriously however I have no idea. Maybe God accidentally squashed it a little when he made it 6000 years ago



Over long periods of time, the Earth's eccentricity changes. It goes from almost a perfect circle to about twice what it is now. I forget how long it takes to do this. But Jupiter and Venus are primarily responsible. Jupiter is the reason that Mars has such a high eccentricity. Mars' eccentricity also periodically changes from nearly-circular to even greater than it is now. Being closer to Jupiter, its maximum eccentricity is much greater than Earth's.

I think we just had another small quake in Virginia. I don't see it on USGS, but I'm certain I just felt the familiar rocking.

ETA: ...Or maybe I'm losing it
I see 2 eq sigs on US.CBN.BHZ -- the largest was only +/- 30 mic/sec. That could have been construction work or something. Meh...

Just got hit with a quake in the Eureka CA area at 1:08. Dont know specifics yet. Fairly good jolt but short lived.



Now its TAs turn to be spot on the money. We got some serious precogs in ATS.

fascinating


In the strict definition of foreshocks and aftershocks (earthquake occurring on the rupture plane of the mainshock before and after the mainshock hypocentral time), these earthquakes are not foreshock and aftershocks, but cascading failure of different segments of the plate interface. Almost all of the triggered earthquakes start at the boundary with previous earthquake, and propagate into regions that have not slipped. This observation suggests that the Mw 9.0 earthquake could have been larger (as large as 9.4) if all the segments failed within a single event.

emphasis' mine
