Another one along the Southern Mid-Atlantic Ridge:

5.2 Southern Mid-Atlantic Ridge 2012-12-27 11:33:59 12.362°S 14.874°W 9.5
earthquake.usgs.gov...

This was the one prior:
5.3 Ascension Island region 2012-12-26 15:24:26 10.432°S 13.170°W 9.2

Do larger ones like this this close together in terms of distance tend to be the norm out there? I'm not sure if I should call it typical, or oddly spaced/timed.

Muzzy, terrific kick-off for the new thread! Kudos


Puterman, thank you for you fine stewardship of Quake Watch over the past 2 years.

I look forward to a 2013 filled with continued learning with my fellow quake watchers.

Hope you all enjoy a peaceful new year.

Interesting, no where is it found on USGS, you'd think that would be newsworthy!

Thank you , that's not the first time i've seen that , it's a bit unnerving to see that....what possible reason would there be for it to show up at all with no actual quake?

Local noise from wind or anthropogenic activities.

Incessant signals generated at the ocean floor and coasts induced by ocean waves.Microseism

Cryospheric events associated with large icebergs and glaciers.

Above-ocean meteor strikes - explosion also all other kind of explosions.

Industrial accidents and terrorist bombs and events.

Also some other influences but I think you got a point, seismometers sensors are very sensitive devices.

You are incorrect actually, it is an earthquake. It is just not a 5.9 it is a mag 3.3.

Have a look at this post in Quake Watch 2012

Just for posterity as the link in my other post will eventually go. Here is the seismogram of the quake.



That is not a phantom. The pick is wrong that is all.

 

For your enjoyment and delectation, and to see a bit more of the background, I have beefed that seismo up a little...

See just above mountaingirl. It is on USGS you just have to look, and never believe what any site says until you have cross checked it with one or two more!

It is not uncommon for this to happen and I guess this has probably come from EarthScope when these 'anomalies' are frequent.

I do not know how to bring a quote from one thread to another, so your index finger will have to work a little today.

I thought this post from Olivine, and this other info I dug up might be thread worthy.

Just a heads up!!

Hopefully this link works.This post is related to the last two posts on the last page of that thread.

Cascadia could go at any time, and there likely won't be any warning.
Just make sure you have emergency supplies at hand and plenty of drinking water stored away if you live in the PNW (and anywhere else for that matter)
We just replaced a lot of food items in our emergency boxes last month, I am getting a bit sick of eating beaked beans out of the can lately, but I bet they would have be most welcome if a mag 8+ had hit us and the stores were closed or unable to get supplies.
I just replaced our water supply this morning with fresh water, I do that every month.
And keep enough LPG for the BBQ to last a month.
All tradeable for cigarettes of course in a WCS (worst case scenerio)

17 seconds into 2013 ................
Perhaps the first quake of 2013


Public ID 2012p987725
Universal Time December 31 2012 at 11:00:17
NZ Daylight Time Tuesday, January 1 2013 at 12:00:17 am
Latitude, Longitude -41.82, 174.39
Intensity ? unnoticeable
Focal Depth 58 km
Magnitude 3.0
Location 30 km south-east of Seddon
112.6 km south-south-west of muzzy's house (my edit)
Agency WEL(GNS_Primary)
Status ? automatic
Quality ? good
Source; Geonet


Of course it is still 2012 in the rest of the World yet

We don't normally bother to stay up till midnight, but some clowns in the neighbourhood started to let off firecrackers at 00:00:00 NZDT and woke us up, still going 58 minutes later


Have a safe and prosperous New Year everyone


edit on 31-12-2012 by muzzy because: first edit of 2013?, forgot the ] in the colour html



edit: now I'm wide awake, might as well look into it in more detail


Latitude, Longitude -41.8193, 58.3203
Magnitude: 2.9608 ML
# phases used: 49
Source: CQL

[color=C48189]h ttp://wfs-beta.geonet.org.nz/geoserver/geonet/ows?service=WFS&version=1.0.0&request=GetFeature&typeName=geonet:quake&outputFormat=csv&cql_filter=origi ntime>='2012-12-30'+AND+origintime0
This is the (CQL) Contextual Query Language query I used to get the Excel csv file with the data for 30/12/2012 to 02/01/2012
(you just copy and paste it into your browser address bar, just bring that h and t together at the start without the gap to make it an html address that works.)
warning: it will open an Excel csv file in your " downloads" rather than open a web page
Change the dates to suit whatever time period and magnitude data you want.

Yesterday I did a CQL for 01/11/2011 to 31/11/2011 Mag 3+, and got 601 results, all " reviewed" so the NZ Earthquakes Catalog has been updated

I had 399 events of mag 3+ from a search using the old Magma page on 21/10/2012, so its a quite recent update


however ................

I just did another Magma page search for 01/11/2011 to 31/11/2011 Mag 3+ and got 610 results, so there must still be 9 left un-resolved?
edit on 31-12-2012 by muzzy because: 2nd edit of 2013 to add more detail
edit on 31-12-2012 by muzzy because: 3rd edit of 2013 to clarify searching geonets database
edit on 31-12-2012 by muzzy because: 4th edit, come on, more than one paragraph?, there had to be spelling or grammar mistakes to fix
, and it is 2am!

No its not, because they rounded it off!, so it gets a yellow icon rather than an orange one.
more detail using CQL

Latitude, Longitude: -39.2911, 173.5674

still a decent quake though, 11 aftershocks so far, all headed towards Mt Egmont


interactive map New Zealand 2013 so far
The full days map with these on it will appear later on my blog as 31st of December 2012 because I run that in UTC..

Oooh, as he stretches, creaks and moans. Yea.

Nice thread, I feel right at home, the other was was getting a little crowded.

I wonder if we can break the 300 pages! Came close last year!

Happy New Year to all and let us hope this year that Mother Nature is again kind to us all!
