So, the first shaking and booms were on Sunday. The USGS has the only recorded quake showing up on Tuesday the 20th. The booms were reported still happening yesterday.

www.youtube.com...#!

This is a common theme over the last few years. The ground is shaking and booming. Residents at standing room only town hall meetings. This is the script for a sci-fi movie. Oh wait, I've already explored this theme and posted the town hall from Jaws several times before. Oh how I forget things.

Mm, same signature is turning up at Clintonville, Wisconsin. See this thread.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

That was a single thump, but the shape of the spectrogram is almost identical - high @ 15 Hz centre and nothing in the bottom end.

This gets more and more curious.

Sorry about taking so long to get back to you, PM.
The length of the entire seismo pic above is about 5 min 50 seconds. And from the beginning of the 1st "boom" to the beginning of the second is 2 min 25 sec. So, a minute 40 second grab for one event seems right. Hope that is helpful.


It does look similar to the sonic boom signatures. I haven't listened to the sound file yet. I'm leaning toward the cause being manmade just because it would've been on USGS after being picked up by so many stations, if it was EQ. Coupled with the 15hz strength...it is odd. Thanks for looking into this.

Thanks for this nice summary of the Oaxcaca earthquake, Muzzy. Really fine work, Sir.


I hadn't heard there were fatalities. So sad. If this event had been closer to Mexico City it would have been devastating.

Thanks Olivine, glad someone found the info useful, sometimes you wonder if anyone reads the stuff I do.
I notice you didn't have a look at the 72hoursAftershockTimelineGraph page though

Actually no one has yet

Blog Stats show 4 people looked at the 30daysAftershockTimelineGraph page yesterday, maybe I'm focusing on the wrong time period.
I chose 72 hours because the graph fits on the page in thumbnail size but you can still see whats on it without opening each graph.
I've now added the 2010 Chile 8.8, 2009 Dusky Sound 7.8 and the 2008 Sichuan 7.9 graphs.

Not many graphs yet, the object is to get an idea what the aftershock sequences might be for any given area.
A lot probably depends on the source of the data, as it usually does, ANSS are not too bad, but tend just to go above Mag 4 (the Sichuan being the exception , down to 3.4). As a test did one for the SW of Siberia 6.8Mw quake last month using both RAS (Russian) and ANSS data, ANSS had 4 more quakes in the 72hr period, which surprised me, I expected it to be the reverse.
Of the 3 NZ ones I have done, there seems to be a thin scattering of 4s,and 5's then a time lag of 24-36 hours before the lower magnitude aftershocks kick in.
Chile and Mexico the volume of aftershocks is quite low, even the Chile 8.8. (Baja the exception)
For the Dusky Sound graph I did 2 versions, one based on the data I downloaded at the end of 2009 and one using the data downloaded yesterday ( 3 years after) and the volume of aftershocks listed was almost double (409 vs 720) so it may pay to be patient and hold back on drawing up conclusions early after the event.
I need to do more to get a better overall understanding.

Not that I'm looking for hits

I started my blogs long before I came on ATS, and I do a lot of the pages for my own satisfaction (like SNZO), if other people find it useful then thats great. I had a message on my NZ Historic Quakes V.1 blog from someone who remembered the Hawks Crag (Westport) quakes of 1991 when she was 3 years old, thanking me for putting up the maps and text on them as there was nothing else she could find on the internet. That was satisfying.

Something in the South Pacific 22:30ish UTC none of the networks have ID'd. Looks like a 5.
Could be South Sandwich Islands but that probably wouldn't show over here.
Can see it on Palmer the best, also
SNZO; TRQA, Argentina;
SBA, Scott Base, Antarctica;
RAR, Rarotonga, Cook Islands
AFI, Afiamalu, Samoa
LISS Global

Nothing on IRIS

happened before the Northern East Pacific Rise, so its not that one.

This seems bigger than a Mag 5.1 judging by the size of the surface waves hitting all the seismos I was watching in the PNW. It's making a mess of things the way a Mag 6 does.


ETA: Nevermind, I guess I was seeing the Mag 4.6 & 4.7 quakes from Mexico--they just hadn't been listed yet.

nice. : )

thats one part or the ridge that rose to sea level and then subsided.

the rumblus amongus.

were there any prior quakes in that area?

That quake was 452 km from the epicentre of the last one so if you include a 500 km radius from the epicentre you find that it was far from the last one, which was 16th March 2012 - a 4.9 (448 km from the current epicentre)

Results for 500km

Last 2 don't you mean? The first post both are the same quake. Pattern? No these are possibly the result of the Oaxaca quake relieving a bit of stress despite the fact the the southern one is 1594 km from the northern one and both are a considerable distance from Oaxaca. With 2 quakes I don't see a pattern personally.

Based on the traces on LISS SNZO that USGS 5.1 looks more like a 5.5-5.6 IMO.
Also the one on the graph with the P wave at at 22:32 I mentioned previously is probably in the same area is probably a 5.1, based on the comparitive size of the Central East Pacific Rise on the graph at 04:36 being a 4.8

Can't cross check with Geofon, is off line right now.

The 5.1 is as the crow flies 3882 km from SNZo and the CEPR one is 8950 km ATCF. Is it possible to make such a comparison with such a huge distance disparity?

Would the 4.8 even show at SNZO? I know the 4.5 on the 24th is smaller and just over 1000 km further but how does that compare?

SNZO.IU.00.VHZ.2012.085 just out of interest or BHZ? You can hardly see it. SNZO.IU.00.BHZ.2012.085. I still want to know how they produce those LISS plots since they seem to have not relation to other ones. Something to do with the filters I guess.


edit on 25/3/2012 by PuterMan because: (no reason given)


 

SNZO.IU.00.VHZ.2012.084 Any ideas n the one that starts about 22:30? I had a look on your SNZO page for yesterday but it was not there - DUH I am being stoopid. That is the one you were pointing out above. Just ignore me.

Sorry Muzzy I am not seeing that one as the CEPR. I believe it is another local one. Reasoning is thus:

CEPR 03:59
Trace 04:36
Distance of CEPR quake to SNZO 8960 km (I don't believe it would show)
This gives @ 36 minutes = 2160 seconds a P-wave velocity of only 4.14 km/sec which I feel is too slow.
