Good to know.


The giant orb of iron and nickel that anchors Earth's center is spinning faster than the planet's surface, according to a new study that confirms scientists' expectations.
The finding is based on analyses of earthquake pairs that occur at roughly the same spot on Earth but at different times.
On seismic recoding instruments, the earthquake signatures from waveform doublets, as they are called, look nearly identical.
When earthquakes strike, their seismic waves can travel through the planet and surface all over the globe. The researchers analyzed 18 sets of waveform doublets -- some separated in time by up to 35 years -- from earthquakes occurring off the coast of South America but which were recorded at seismic stations near Alaska.

So....sooo....SAD!
That place is still cracka lackin too.

I see Missouri finally had an aftershock. folkworm.ceri.memphis.edu... is showing a 2.4 just a few minutes ago. Makes me feel better for the area involved not to mention my area as well.

I hope that Mother Earth is healed soon...

She's going through so much right now

Good eye, MamaJ

It's the one I saw on GEE earlier. I guess the info was only now finalized and passed on to USGS @ 17:05:47 UTC


@muzzy That's a powerful image-thanks for sharing. I hope the healing and rebuilding continue.

Yeah I was wondering if that was the same one you had mentioned earlier. You see anything else as of late? I am wondering if the ground is still noisy??

Mr Puterman sir,

What is going on in Islay? 2 in one day

2012/02/20 07:18:20.0 55.765 -6.337 9 1.4 2 ISLAY,ARGYLL/BUTE FELT ISLAY
2012/02/20 05:35:48.9 55.781 -6.351 11 2.6 3 ISLAY,ARGYLL/BUTE FELT ISLAY

and another a fortnight earlier...

2012/02/05 15:15:03.3 55.801 -6.368 6 1.5 3 ISLAY,ARGYLL/BUTE FELT ISLAY

all 3 'felt'.

Rainbows

I've seen at least 50 tiny spikes up to 10+/- microns/sec, but they don't have the "classic" quake shape like the one I posted earlier. Could be traffic noise, or nearby construction.
Someone that watches the area often in GEE (or even fancier software
) would be better able to tell you if the area "looks noisy".

That photo still gets me.
My adrenalin levels are high today, for no other reason than memory. It's odd. Feel quite numb. It's still pretty raw.

On the way to work I saw many road cones decorated with flowers. It was an oddly beautiful and poignant sight and touched a nerve. I had a weepy eye or two...damned hayfever!



Scientist sees quieter times

Let's hope my colleague Mark is correct in his assessment. He's been tireless and working like a legend.


It has been pretty quiet, seismically, around here lately.

You may rest assured that the 188 day theory is pure conjecture. There is no rhyme or reason behind it, unless you ignore the earthquakes in between!


I think I already posted the image here, but here it is on my blog while I go and find the post. Note that another blogger Bill Foster also looked at this and cam to the same conclusions - completely independently by the way.

Here is Bill Foster's take on that

 

Found the picture I posted - ETA: The post it was in was in a thread on the subject.

Hi Puterman:

Have there been any smaller aftershocks near the Misourri epicenter yet? My fingers are crossed that you say yes, as my minuscule understanding is that the 4 could be a foreshock, would rather it be an aftershock of course. Thanks for helping us to understand all this,

STM

With eight active distilleries on the island and a ninth being readied for production around 2008, so probably in production, I guess anything. It is probably the islanders bumping into each other.

No idea, sorry


Mebbe it is tryin' tae break awa' frae engelain.

 

Ye have me going now. In my pitifully out of date database I don't find any quakes for ISLAY. Mind it only goes back to 1382. Curious indeed. More investigation and more drams needed.

I had not realised it is on the fault line of the Great Glen. That probably explains it.

No just the one so far that I can see,

You all may find this interesting: Long aftershock sequences within continents and implications for earthquake hazard assessment

This study suggests that all the quakes in the NMSZ are aftershocks of earlier larger ones.

This artlicle reports on that study.


In the study, Mian and Seth Stein of Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill., show that earthquakes in continental interiors, such as the Mississippi's New Madrid seismic zone hit by 1811 and 1812 major quakes, unleash aftershocks centuries to millennia later. Rather than pointing to risks of future major quakes on those spots as they would on the edge of a continent, these events are simply the slow settling of continental crust.

Thanks for the update and article. So this 4 quake may be an aftershock of the 1800's big one, Good deal, i'll hold on to that as it's the best of the scenarios. Thanks again,

STM

Horizontal Earthquake

Many of you have probably heard of this before but it is a first for me. I just wanted to offer up the link for anyone interested. What are the chances of more of these faults existing in hidden areas?

Nice one!! Yes, but i was not aware that the lubricant was salt!

Incidentally thanks also because in that article was a link to this:


Meantime, the reversal of the fault is itself an important discovery. Similar reversals have been noted at other subduction zones, such as the highly active Cascadia region off the coast of Washington and Oregon. But this is the largest such backward event so far detected.


In Surprise, Major Earthquake Fault Slips Backward

Hang on a minute. It reversed subduction? I always knew there was something wrong with that theory.


ETA:

What are the chances of more of these faults existing in hidden areas?


Probably quite good.

I'm not so sure that every time the New Madrid Fault has a quake that it is an aftershock to the quake of 1812....
