I haven't really spent all that much time in this forum, but I found this article in relation to Fukushima, and I thought I'd post it here mainly
for feedback from a geological perspective.
I decided to do my own research, as it seemed a little odd to me. Here is the first quake, both on the Japan Meteorological Agency and on the US
Geological Service sites:
Here's the second quake on the JMA site, but I can't seem to find this event on the USGS site:
Here's the info for those who cbf clicking:
03:46 JST 26 Mar 2012 37.8N 141.8E 50 km 3.9 Fukushima-ken Oki
22:22 JST 25 Mar 2012 37.7N 141.8E 50 km 5.2 Fukushima-ken Oki
Now I don't know all that much about seismic activity, but from what I understand clusters of activity is a common thing with earthquakes, but the
exact same position and depth? Does this seem like an anomaly to anyone else?
I don't want to come across too tin-foil hatty (not that there's anything wrong with that) but it seems weird to me that there's no info on this
second quake on the USGS site (that I can tell)
There are more recent quakes than the second 3.9 quake near Fukushima from all over the world posted on the USGS site, some of them at a lesser
magnitude than this quake.
Can anyone who has more experience with these sites and knowledge of seismic activity shed more light on this?
