That deep Russian quake on the China border . . .

seems reasonably powerful.

How precedented is that?

Any above average implications?

IIRC, that's not far off from the length of Colorado top to bottom.

How many quakes in an average year are that deep or deeper?

IT just seems very curious to me, for some reason.

Any added info would be appreciated.

7.2 just slammed P.N.G./Indonesia

comcat.cr.usgs.gov...

I thought it was less...watched it come in.

58 km deep, initial reports....there will probably be changes on this is my guess.

Note: that is Mi (moment) magnitude...

Yep, mag already dropped once, now down to 7.1- although that is now Mwp magnitude.

LMAO.


Even the NEIC itself doesn't know what kind of magnitude it is:


earthquake.usgs.gov...

And that's now 7.0 Unknown Magnitude. So if the magnitude type is unknown, then WTF? How can that even be at all? It MUST be SOME KIND of magnitude!!!


Quick go look before they change it...but I captured a screenie of it before they could.

So if they don't, how the heck are we supposed to know?

:shk:

They gotta come up with a better way, I swear. Ok look, it was a 6.7 to 7.2 ATS magnitude. Ok? The fricken end of this BS!

E. RUSSIA-N.E. CHINA BORDER REG.
I'm still getting my head around their databases, not sure which one to use to search for info.
this is from the China Earthquake Networks Center catalog 1970-2012
lat 40 to 45.32, long 128.1 to 135.72
results show 1971/06/06 to 2011/05/10
of 141 events on that list/map
60 over 500km deep

interactive map
text list

hopefully the popup tags work for you, some of them didn't when I looked.

Anything going on in that area?

I saw on my map but disappeared....glitch or maybe a timeout

anyone beginning to see a pattern of displacement?

Why evacuate for an earthquake no-one can feel?





It's four years since the deadly earthquake in L'Aquila, Italy, and six months since scientists were convicted of manslaughter for failing to communicate the danger. Today, evacuation orders are issued much more readily - too readily, some say.

"Everyone knows, you can't predict an earthquake."

Anne Thornley-Bennett, who lives in the Italian town of Barga, categorically believes this. So why, on 31 January, did she decide to evacuate when the local council sent out warnings of a major quake?

"We received dozens of phone calls and text messages, one of which just said, 'Evacuate'. We just went along with the mania," she sighs.

I must be the only one awake this early...

There has been a 7.1 quake in Papua Indonesia (downgraded on the USGS site to 7.0) about 6 hours ago, followed by several aftershocks. The main quake is at the bottom of the list.

Note that, for newbies to this thread, the page automatically updates, so the farther from the time of this post the lower on the page the events listed below will be, until at the 7 day mark they drop off altogether.

Much appreciate the links. The text list is more functional for me. Particularly for scanning.

It would appear, if I'm reading the list right that many are 500 or so miles deep???!!!

no problem, it was a good question.
yeah lists are better to see the overall picture, I'll do that more often from now but it actually uses more storage space than the kmz file that makes the map (10k for the text and 8k for the kmz) which surprised me.

No the depths are km, we changed to km back in 1970

This is what I put on the Significant Earthquakes 314-2012 page (need to change that heading
)


Date/Time: 2013/4/6 04:42:36.12
Lat: -3.526 Long: 138.466 [usgs]
Location: Papua
Magnitude:
Mw 7.0 [gcmt, gfz] Ms 7.0 [gcmt]
mb 6.6 [usgs] 6.8 [gsras] Ms 6.7 [gsras]
Depth: 153.8 km
Deaths: Injuries:
Tsunami:
Catalog Source: gcmt, usgs, ras, gfz

interactive map

China Earthquake Networks gave it a 7.0Ms

gfz conversion table didn't work for this one.

I'm still having trouble with those popups on the maps, some work, some don't, clicking on the side list works sometimes, clicking on the icon works sometimes and vis-versa, not sure what the issue is there

USGS are getting worse and worse.
I'm just using them for co-ordinates and the phase data now, GCMT for the magnitudes, but GCMT are useless for lat/long, as are LDEO.
its a shambles, and that interactivemapthingy doesn't help as it doesn't have the same data as the 7 days pages links. (no phase data, on that one anyway)
what did the Indonesians have BTW?
I haven't been there for a while since my AV told me to "get the heck outtahere" last time I clicked on the page.

I think the authorities did the right thing, what the article doesn't say is that up to the 31st there were 257 aftershocks from the 5.0mb, 4.8ML quake of 25/01/2013 (which is quite a lot for a "moderate" quake) and based on what happened in the Emilia-Romagna double 5.8, 5.9 series ....................., let alone L'Aquila ............. the chances of another mag 5 were pretty high IMO
garfagnana series
the 5.8ML
the 5.9ML
both together

its always an individuals choice to evacuate anyway, unlike if a Hurricane is coming, its only after a big quake that the authorities have the right to make it compulsory.

a case of damned if they do, damned if they don't at Barga

Prof Stefano Gresta (INGV) is right, building safer houses is the solution, not running away from the problem.
They are building steel frames houses here in NZ that can withstand a magnitude 9.0 quake and timber framed houses since the 1880's have survived mag 7's very well, its anything made of stone that is the problem, no flexibilty. Same in Japan, timber houses ride the wave.

The event info page lacks an area history, so I don't know how common or uncommon this one is, but it's not in the Pyrenees this time, it's 98 miles from Bern, Switzerland.

It does have phase data, on the technical page, and in any event you can get the phase data off my entries after a couple of days once I have caught up!!

Temporary listing of the Indonesia phase data added to the temporary post on my blog.

Found it is now on the USGS page

They also have the moment tensors in the old format since I complained and they emailed to say that they were reinstating them. I hope they don't change their mind!

 

Perhaps a bit OT but I am not sure if your storms thread is still running
