Looks like was really EQ but way USGS did not report hmm ..

Can't find closer seismogram to EQ report ..

It looks like that may have been a false trigger due to the mag 5.2 Southern East Pacific Rise quake at 19:32:41UTC. Looking at the estimated travel time of 12/13 minutes for the first P-waves to hit Wyoming, it seems close.

Geez NIED sure went over the top on that one, never seen them be so far away from what JMA eventually put on their page.
Will have to wait 3 days for reviewed data on that.

Well NIED came in at 5.4Mw for this one on the 3 day review.

Thank you for sharing that info but I don't think so ..

Report was too far from Pacific Rise EQ also was not strong one ..

Darn I hate it when these people do this unannounced. Now I have going to have to go and check if the Chile collection in the QVSData program works.

If it it ain't broke, don't fix it. Motto of the Taureans. (Along with never do today what you can put off until tomorrow)

The Geophysical report for this week is done - the earthquake part. This thing is getting to be a monster and takes up vast amounts of time. The report is split into two parts now with quakes and then volcanoes and storms in another post.

Because I have nothing better to do and time hangs heavy on my hands I have embarked on a massive project to show, or not, that earthquakes are on the decrease. I have started at 2002 and am now up to 2007. It involves creating a slot for each day, adding the energy for Mag 6 quakes on that day and then converting back to a magnitude. The global rolling magnitude equivalent is then charted, along with the rolling number of events and the rolling days between events.

So far it has taken 2 full days so don't expect the results before next week at the earliest. Then I have to do Mag 7, and Mag 8+

Needles to say I will not even attempt Mag 5s. Once I have 2002 - 2013 I want to work backwards as far as I can (1970?)

Not reported because it is most likely a mining explosion. First the location is Gillette. That should be a big clue as they have a tendency to blow things up around those parts.

Second, USGS have not reported a 4.4? Unlikely. Yes the event did happen - no doubt about that but I suspect that EMSC and Potsdam are erroneously attributing this to a quake OR USGS have not published yet because they are deciding which it is.

Not on the Mining blasts list yet however.
More info: The lists are updated at 3am Mountain time (UTC -7) so the last update was 2000 UTC on the 27th and therefore before the event. It will be on the next update I have no doubt.

ETA: You can check out once they do appear using the phase data for the blasts

Hey Puterman, I sympathize with you on the work, very time consuming. I feel for ya, but it's too bad that you aren't doing the small quakes. I'm not sure how others feel, but for me I'm already convinced the larger quakes aren't on the rise. It's the smaller quakes I question.

I hear what you are saying, but globally the small quakes are not significant if we are talking about < Mag 5. It is a possibility that I could eventually include Mag 5, but the problem there is that as far as I am concerned Mag 5 data from USGS is NOT complete, especially if one is looking at converting mb values to Mw (approximately) to try and get some sort of level playing field.

I don't believe that it would be possible to get an accurate figure and bear in mind that on USGS quake (converted) we are looking at well in excess of 6000 quakes a year. At around 17 events daily that is a massive amount of effort to get what would probably be an inaccurate result.

In my opinion Mag 5 and under are essentially local events and need to be treated as such. I have enough problem keeping up with the global events, let alone doing localised investigations - much as I would like to!

PS there is Mag 5 stuff in the Geophysical but it won't be in the 2002-2013 charts I think unless I can find a way to speed this up (I am working on it)

I agree, the large quakes may be on the decline but I am seeing more small ones. especially in the U S and near active volcanoes worldwide.

@PuterMan - It has been one hell of a weekend for me. I spent most of it in bed on pain killers. I haven't forgot our little discourse but it will take some time to get back to it. I do want to go through the Excel file of Nevada area quakes first since one of my points pivots on them. And that will take some time considering the size of the file.

Earthquake unnerves Kazakhstan's largest city

AP – 2 minutes ago


ALMATY, Kazakhstan (AP) — A magnitude 6.0 earthquake has hit southeastern Kazakhstan, causing apartment buildings to sway in the country's largest city, Almaty.

The shallow tremors were also felt in the capital of neighboring Kyrgyzstan. No damage had been reported by late Monday.

State lawmaker backs early earthquake warning system for California
January 28, 2013 | 8:31 am


A state lawmaker is proposing legislation that would seek to create an early earthquake warning system for California. Details were expected to be released at a news conference Monday.

Earthquake experts welcomed the attention from Sacramento. California has struggled to develop an early warning system that can give seconds of crucial warning that an earthquake is headed their way.

Japan and Mexico have already established quake warning systems. An extensive warning system would require the construction of a network of sensors in the ground. When waves from a quake start moving through the ground, electronic signals -- which move far faster than a quake itself -- can send an alert that the shaking will come soon.

A temblor along the San Andreas fault around the Salton Sea, for instance, could give up to a full minute of warning time before shaking occurred in Los Angeles.

Researchers have been testing a prototype in California called Shake Alert, but the system still has “fragilities that would probably not allow it to work during a very large earthquake,” Given said.

This seems like the best place to ask this question as i am certain i will get a proper answer.

Could this be related to the possible explosion at the Fordow Nuclear Facility?
More Info Here


According to a source in the security forces protecting Fordow, an explosion on Monday at 11:30 a.m. Tehran time rocked the site, which is buried deep under a mountain and immune not only to airstrikes but to most bunker-buster bombs. The report of the blast came via Hamidreza Zakeri, formerly with the Islamic regime’s Ministry of Intelligence and National Security, The blast shook facilities within a radius of three miles. Security forces have enforced a no-traffic radius of 15 miles, and the Tehran-Qom highway was shut down for several hours after the blast, the source said.


It seems to be about 20 minutes after that this is reported.

Don't think so, It's more of 10 hrs differences also locations ..

Kerman - Iran
GMT +3:30

localtimes.info...

The alleged blast was said to have erupted at 11.30am last Monday, that' was 09:00am UTC ..

EQ was 2013-01-21 19:49:03.0, 43 km E of Kerman ..
