Has anyone seen this data? It has been posted on here a few times. I just wanted to follow up with some surprising numbers on the last few years major earthquake data.


1 AD to 1000: 15 earthquakes 7.0 or higher (NGDC) (One every 66 years)
1000 to 1800: 114 7.0 or higher (NGDC) (One every 7 years)
1800 to 1900: 115 7.0 or higher (NGDC) (One every 10 months)
(1935 Richter Scale invented)
1900 to 1980: 774 7.0 or higher (NGDC) (One every 37 days)
United States Geological Survey
1980 to 2000: 255 earthquakes 7.0 or higher (USGS /NEIC) (One every 28 days)
2000 to 2008: 127 earthquakes 7.0 or higher (USGS / NEIC) (One every 26 days)
2009: 17 earthquakes 7.0 or higher (USGS / NEIC) (One every 21 days)
2010: 20 earthquakes 7.0 or higher (USGS / NEIC) (One every 18 days)
2011: 6 earthquakes 7.0 or higher in 3 months (USGS / NEIC) (One every 15 days)

Now here is the full year of
2011: 20 earthquakes 7.0 or higher (One every 18 days)
So far in
2012: 11 earthquakes 7.0 or higher in almost 10 months (NEIC) (One every 24 days)
Last year at this time we were at
17 earthquakes 7.0 or higher by 25sep11 (One every 15 days)
We may be in for a very active end of the year or we seen a peak in activity last year during the planet x/nibru phase. I just never expected to get this as a result of my search. I am hoping that we have peaked in activity but my gut and the way the recent swarms have come i say it is better to prepare and be on the safe side.

Please correct me if i have misunderstood or misrepresented the data.

Are you saying a ficticious planet had an influence on the number of earthquakes?

Interesting the way he selectively chose intervals. Why on Earth doesn't he show the annual totals? Also, his database does not seem to include all earthquakes. For example, for 1900 to 1980 I get 1,295 earthquakes of 7.0 and greater.
earthquake.usgs.gov...

Oh I see...he used this:

The Significant Earthquake Database contains information on destructive earthquakes from 2150 B.C. to the present that meet at least one of the following criteria: Moderate damage (approximately $1 million or more), 10 or more deaths, Magnitude 7.5 or greater, Modified Mercalli Intensity X or greater, or the earthquake generated a tsunami.

www.ngdc.noaa.gov...

So his data is pretty meaningless statistically. Somehow I don't really think records from 1AD to 1900 are going to be very complete. Not many seismographs around before 1880 or so.

No i'm saying that there seems to be a peak in activity around that time frame.
Some might make that claim and some even say that 2012 was really last year.

Ok that would be a 7.0 earthquake every 23 days. That seems to fit somewhat into an uptick in activity.

So what about the rest of the data?

Seems clear that since 09 (maybe longer) we have seen an increase that seems to have peaked in the last quarter of 2011.

not again. Please, for the love of crap, not again.
I hate it when Christians jump on the Nibiru bandwagon. They make the rest of us look stupid. I resent it deeply.

No one has said that.
Save your hate for something else.
I just found the number of quakes this year surprising.

No. No "uptick".
As I said, he isn't using the full dataset. He (and you) is ignoring the effects of aftershocks in the data by using that "quakes per time span" gimmick.

Also, if you're looking for trends in earthquake activity, three years doesn't really cut it.
