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

Yeah I guess their theory is bollocks... so what's yours that would explain that?

Thanks

Very quick answer based on loads of assumptions. IF the reason for Benioff zones is spherical lensing, which is caused by cooling and contraction then IF the lens area cools faster than the surrounding crust it will shrink and the 'side' of the lensed area will contract and thus there will be s very slight effect of moving upwards one against the other.

Of course that also may be complete cojones.

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....


I think I would have to agree with you there. Thing is one needs to report what is being said by the experts, however far fetched or daft it may sound, so that we have all the information to make a decision for ourselves.

Now whether they actually mean that, or perhaps were just saying that these quakes are the crust settling after th1812 quakes and thus COULD be called aftershocks, I am not sure but they certainly do not fit what I understand to be the definition of aftershocks. Quakes that are within a certain radius (depends on the main shock magnitude) that are over and above the number of quakes that are normal for the area, in other words all increased activity until normal levels are resumed.

As I suspected, the minute this quake hit the 8 to 30 day listing today it was downgraded to 5.8. This despite the fact that PNSN has it as two which I agree with, 1 x 6.0 and 1 x 5.9


2012/02/15 03:31:20 43.53N 127.38W 10 5.8 OFF THE COAST OF OREGON.


Left hand and right hand? :shk:

 

Here is a pic of it for you. By the way the reason there are no links is because it is still in limbo land and has not got it's NEIC ID yet. (It may have by the time you look at the listing on the web)

91 minutes ago
Magnitude: 3.4

It still shows there, but I first spotted it on usgs.gov. Don't know where it went.

Thats craaaazy!


I see it on the global site and I see where it says they got their feed from USGS but there is notta on USGS regarding West Virginia. WTH??

I see all over the internet links of local news talking about Boone County waking up to a 3.4. I even had links to USGS and other sites with the info from USGS on it...but no sign of it on USGS anymore. The links to USGS regarding the quake is broken now. Hmmmmmm.... maybe it wasn't a quake or maybe they want to trick us.

The weird thing is they had 4 people reporting to the felt it page shortly after it happened. (I saw it about 15 minutes after it happened). Sooooo......something must have rumbled them, right?

Ha! WTH is going on I wonder. I see it all over the place except on USGS where it originated from. If the locals felt it and the local news is reporting it happened then I wonder why they took it off their feed.

Yesterday was the New Moon so I was wondering if we will have a bigger one somewhere today...but I seriously hope we don't and if we do....release the pressure in the sea far from land is my hope.

St. Louis??? WHOA! Hmmm....


That makes one wonder doesn't it. How could they have possibly felt it that far away?? I knew they were connected but...not like that and that far. Thats just crazy!

[mor

St Louis report of tremor:
63127 is an area directly west of the earthquake (and many many miles away). This is according to google maps.

Depending on geology, maybe they felt it. I know I rarely feel the "usual" quakes but the fracking quakes due south of me gave me and my house problems. Guy, Arkansas quakes really got to me.

Does anyone know which network to add to Gee to get a closer look? Or where I could find that information for myself?

Thanks Doodle, me too. Still having a hard time getting the Gee real-time viewer to not display such large waveforms, the links you provided will help in the mean-time. Meanwhile, watching the swarm at Kilauea progress. 19 so far today and counting
