To be fair, the verdict is not 100% either way.

"It is unclear, however, whether bigger, more damaging earthquakes are routinely triggered at distances far from the mainshock, heightening the global seismic hazard after every large earthquake."

It seems like there are because there are more of us constantly monitoring these quakes and posting about them on online forums.

Or its because they are happening more frequently. 2nd line.


Well, all the evidence shows they are most certainly NOT happening more frequently. Read the link at the beginning of this quote which sites two major studies by the American Geophysical Union.

But if you have any evidence to present to support your claim, feel free to put it forward.


Well sparky since you made the claim that they are not happening more frequently why don't you provide the data that proves your statement? I do not need to read any quotes, I have done my own research and I can see with my own eyes. Besides no evidence I provide will change the opinion of a close minded individual.

I did, several times, in this thread.But here they are again:

www.foxnews.com...

www.livescience.com...

en.wikipedia.org...

www.earthquakescanada.nrcan.gc.ca...

need more?

Well, if you wont read the links I provide, then you clearly have no interest in facts and data.
n if you've done your 'own research', then by all means, show it. I have no problem being proven wrong. PROVEN being the key term. Your opinion dressed as fact with snarky comments is not proof.

Look it up, smart guy.



I did. You're wrong.

I posted evidence.

You havent.

Where's your proof?

I'm sure you scurried away to find evidence for this opinion you call fact,

So i'll just wait for your evidence and proof, which is most likely located in your rectum.

Goodness what a day for earthquakes. Hopefully the ring of fire will be kind to Japan. It's only a matter of time before they get hit again.

Haha, wow, your committed, that's the second time you replied to that same comment... hmm... lol, well anyway...

Proof?.. Interesting...

If you want, you can read some graphs here.




The U.S. Geological Survey keeps records on the number of earthquakes. According to the agency’s stats, the number of magnitude 5.0 to 9.9 earthquakes reached 2,117 in 2010. In 2000, by contrast, the number of such quakes recorded by USGS was 1,505.


Now, you can chalk that up to an increase in monitoring technology, or simply an extended "earthquake cluster.' Ya know? Quite frankly, I don't give a f*** what you think. But if I may, I would like to quote my original comment...

The west coast U.S. is notorious for their small to moderate earthquakes. Although globally, I would say it's pretty apparent that larger and stronger quakes are in fact on the rise.


Ok, now if read correctly, this statement can also be interpreted as an opinion. Note the "I would say..." But even so, somewhat remains a fact. All your articles say, is that it is normal, and that earthquakes do spike occasionally over extended periods of time... and in no way shape or form does that, "disprove" anything I said.

depth of a quake is very important thats how far it had to travel to reach the surface a shallow quake can crumble a city quickly a deeper quake can do damage but not level a town.
its all about size lol

From the peanut gallery here... sure looks like they're increasing providing the article cited is based of fact, pure fact and accurate stats and not opinion...

Saw about the Mexico earthquake located in a sparsely populated area, supposedly downgrowngraded to a 6.5 from cable news outlet. Seismologists say not related to the two in Indonesia today. O.k. Then what's causing those earthquakes to happen all in one day?

Funny how you left the rest of the quote out from your own link, almost like you either selectively chose to pick out the part that appeared to support your claims, or you just stopped reading before the end of the article...


In the case of that caveat, USGS warns that the increased numbers shouldn’t be taken to mean that the earth is now being ripped apart by seismic activity.

According to the agency: We continue to be asked by many people throughout the world if earthquakes are on the increase.

Although it may seem that we are having more earthquakes, earthquakes of magnitude 7.0 or greater have remained fairly constant. A partial explanation may lie in the fact that in the last twenty years, we have definitely had an increase in the number of earthquakes we have been able to locate each year.

This is because of the tremendous increase in the number of seismograph stations in the world and the many improvements in global communications. In 1931, there were about 350 stations operating in the world; today, there are more than 8,000 stations and the data now comes in rapidly from these stations by electronic mail, internet and satellite.

This increase in the number of stations and the more timely receipt of data has allowed us and other seismological centers to locate earthquakes more rapidly and to locate many small earthquakes which were undetected in earlier years. The NEIC now locates about 20,000 earthquakes each year or approximately 50 per day. Also, because of the improvements in communications and the increased interest in the environment and natural disasters, the public now learns about more earthquakes.

Looks like the Alaskan ones are getting stronger and stronger. Hopefully its normal.
