Hi zworld. Those top 2 quakes you posted are from The Geysers area. It's the largest geothermal facility in the world. That's why it has so many quakes daily. It is also above the hypothosized slabless window. So the heat is close to the surface. I believe the 4.3 you listed is on the high side magnitude-wise, for the area.

How you doing after the big shake? The background "noise" on the spectrograms and seismos I've been following in your area haven't quieted down yet--keep safe.

ETA: Sorry 'bout that, Puterman. Didn't see you already had mentioned the Geysers.

Heeelllo Puterman


I was looking at the spikey ones @ 19:07 and 19:08 UTC. The one at 17:44:20 looks earthquakish too, but I was wandering around then--didn't feel anything.
So the ones that look like trains; any chance those could be small shakes from way out to sea? Like maybe Mag 3"s from the Mid-Atlantic Ridge? I've been searching for seismos in near real-time near the ridge with no luck. You have any favorites in that humongous area?

Sorry, just added to my other post - trains. See the bottom of the previous page. Track is 3.36 miles and curves round past the station.

 

Closest to the MAR are PM.ROSA and II.CMLA (The are almost on it)

IU.BBSR is about half way there

If I was the PNSN I would say those were military jets breaking the sound barrier, and if I was the PNSN I might be right because the sure don't sound like earthquakes.



Sound in a few minutes - look back in this post.

Larger but certainly not unknown

There is a list of counts quakes to 2010 on the second page.

With the little bit of action the PNW is getting , is anyone else a tad nervous about the Cascadia Subduction Zone?

I guess it just makes me extra-aware that things are making a little more noise up there "than usual".


Just want some thoughts
I am fully aware the Earth has to stretch and move from time to time.

Puterman, your right, those are strange sounding earthquakes.

Nice find on the link about The Geysers' earthquakes. I couldn't remember ever seeing a Mag 5 or larger in that immediate area, and skimming your link, they don't seem to happen (well not in recent times)


Looking at the focal mechanism given for todays Mag 5.6 near Weitchpec, it looks to be a normal-type fault (extensional). I compared the location with some of my geological maps of the area, and the epicenter given is nearly on top of a long, very old fault (the South Fork fault) from the Jurassic (the exact age is still being debated but safely put at 120-140 Mya (Mya = millions of years ago--when exotic terranes were still attaching to the west coast).
Here is a link to the USGS -- styles of faults page. It has pics of the different types of faults.

Todays quake is most probably related to the subduction zone and all of its accumulated stress, but the normal style of faulting doesn't make me think this was a plate interface quake. Also factoring in the depth of almost 33km, when the estimated plate interface depth at that location is very close to 20km, leads me to think todays quake originated in or possibly below the subducting slab.

How you doing after the big shake?


A couple of small movements, nothing really. But even the 5.6 wasn't much of a shake here in Eureka. Depth and distance. Not even much out on the rez close to where it hit. From a local paper.



Juice, bottles of pasta sauce and other items topple off shelves at Ray's Food Place in Hoopa, but the quake didn't do major damage, said store Manager David Gillan. There were about 10 to 15 customers shopping at the time.

The earthquake occurred about 20 miles beneath the earth's surface, which is typical for Humboldt County's inland earthquakes, said HSU geology professor Lori Dengler. The quake occurred on a fault that is unnamed because it doesn't reach the surface. Humboldt County is full of unnamed faults that either haven't been studied or can't be seen, she said.


Full of unnamed faults. That's reassuring. So is the fact that M. Night Shyamalan is going to film his new science fiction thriller, “After Earth,” here starting soon. He better hurry up or it may be too late and 'after humans'.

ON EDIT. Oooh. That was a rather large aftershock I just felt. Checking it out.

OK. Guys,

I respect all of you guys. T.A. has got my feathers in a ruffle. Could someone else chime in here and lend me a hand. Is this really something we need to be concerned about? And if so, could you please let us (the ones who arn't that good at reading the instruments) know what to be looking for.

whats the time shown on this ATS rig?

says posted on 14-2-2012 @ 10:24 AM, I'm sure it wasn't that late, but I forget now, if it was NZDT then that would have been13-2-2012 21:24 UTC.
can't find anything nearby at that time on Geonet, nearest was
3.99, -36.11597, 177.79086, 2012/2/13 21:25:24, 194 way the heck out by Rumble 4 seamount, so couldn't be that
must have just been a freak gust of wind shook the house to the foundations !
nearestquake to me location wise was
2.445, -41.01844, 175.12315, 2012/2/13 6:43:8, 27km deep,in the Tararua Mts behind us to the east, time doesn't match though

busy 24hrs for NZ though 46 quakes for the 13th UTC, and seven this afternoon, biggest a 4.884 offshore at Tauranga Trough.
bit of activity at both ends of the Volcanic Plateau, 6 to the west of Turangi and 4 at Lake Moawhango NE of Waiouru

I'll look into it again tommorrow, just checked and that time on the post is NZDT, which I set in my settings.
I thought it was earlier.

More on the lighter side of this particular thread . . . but my sister, who is nobody in the seismological world (a nurse for an optometrist) had her first crazy, destructive, chaotic (apocalyptic some would say ...) dream about life here in the Pacific Northwest. She came over and explained her dream to me . . .

She said that she was in a car with her daughter, my niece, and that they were trying to get to our parents. She said that the whole road was moving so much that it threw the Jeep around to the point that they could barely stay on the road; but what really spooked her was watching the power poles . . . she said that they, and specifically the lines(the lines and poles really scared her . . . she said they were swaying everywhere), were swaying all over the place, so much so that she was afraid that they would hit them while traveling the road.

What's funny about this is that my sister NEVER has dreams or stories about this kind of thing, although, I realize that means nothing. I just thought I would share her dream with you all . . . just in case it mattered later.

That will be going up I think. I am guessing 6.7

Are you posting direct from the USGS page. Just wondering why your text as always so difficult to read and always starts with the word text.
