There was actually one foreshock. A mag 3.7 about 6 hours before but that could only possibly be determined after the event. There is possibly another on the 7th

Have those been posted? Found this, there was a M8 doublet - 2009 at Samoa/Tonga.

Published on same Nature journal issue, 2 proposals by 2 groups on how the doublet was triggered.

The 1st left a public comment on the 2nd and maintain their view.

Great earthquakes (having seismic magnitudes of at least 8) usually involve abrupt sliding of rock masses at a boundary between tectonic plates. Such interplate ruptures produce dynamic and static stress changes that can activate nearby intraplate aftershocks, as is commonly observed in the trench-slope region seaward of a great subduction zone thrust event1, 2, 3, 4. The earthquake sequence addressed here involves a rare instance in which a great trench-slope intraplate earthquake triggered extensive interplate faulting, reversing the typical pattern and broadly expanding the seismic and tsunami hazard. On 29 September 2009, within two minutes of the initiation of a normal faulting event with moment magnitude 8.1 in the outer trench-slope at the northern end of the Tonga subduction zone, two major interplate underthrusting subevents (both with moment magnitude 7.8), with total moment equal to a second great earthquake of moment magnitude 8.0, ruptured the nearby subduction zone megathrust. The collective faulting produced tsunami waves with localized regions of about 12 metres run-up that claimed 192 lives in Samoa, American Samoa and Tonga. Overlap of the seismic signals obscured the fact that distinct faults separated by more than 50 km had ruptured with different geometries, with the triggered thrust faulting only being revealed by detailed seismic wave analyses. Extensive interplate and intraplate aftershock activity was activated over a large region of the northern Tonga subduction zone.

2010-08-19 11:56 AM comment #12882

Thorne Lay said:

Subsequent to publication, and motivated by the GPS and tsunami models of the paper by Beavan et al., we further examined the seismic ground motions preceding the arrival of the P waves from the normal faulting event. Stacking F-Net stations in Japan and Transportable Array stations in the USA indicates no visible precursory seismic radiation, and assuming a 200 s time scale, we can bound any precursory seismic radiation to less than a magnitude 6.5 event. Since we account for all of the seismic moment needed to explain the GPS observations with thrust faulting after the normal faulting event, we continue to prefer the notion that the thrust faulting was triggered by shaking from the normal faulting.

The Earth’s largest earthquakes and tsunamis are usually caused by thrust-faulting earthquakes on the shallow part of the subduction interface between two tectonic plates, where stored elastic energy due to convergence between the plates is rapidly released1, 2. The tsunami that devastated the Samoan and northern Tongan islands on 29 September 2009 was preceded by a globally recorded magnitude-8 normal-faulting earthquake in the outer-rise region, where the Pacific plate bends before entering the subduction zone. Preliminary interpretation suggested that this earthquake was the source of the tsunami3. Here we show that the outer-rise earthquake was accompanied by a nearly simultaneous rupture of the shallow subduction interface, equivalent to a magnitude-8 earthquake, that also contributed significantly to the tsunami. The subduction interface event was probably a slow earthquake with a rise time of several minutes that triggered the outer-rise event several minutes later. However, we cannot rule out the possibility that the normal fault ruptured first and dynamically triggered the subduction interface event. Our evidence comes from displacements of Global Positioning System stations and modelling of tsunami waves recorded by ocean-bottom pressure sensors, with support from seismic data and tsunami field observations. Evidence of the subduction earthquake in global seismic data is largely hidden because of the earthquake’s slow rise time or because its ground motion is disguised by that of the normal-faulting event. Earthquake doublets where subduction interface events trigger large outer-rise earthquakes have been recorded previously4, but this is the first well-documented example where the two events occur so closely in time and the triggering event might be a slow earthquake. As well as providing information on strain release mechanisms at subduction zones, earthquakes such as this provide a possible mechanism for the occasional large tsunamis generated at the Tonga subduction zone5, where slip between the plates is predominantly aseismic6.

No tsunami warnings that I can see yet.

Interestingly GFZ has now revised again and brought it down to 5.9 Mw


This is probably going to drop. The USGS have it as 5.8 Mw in the body moment tensor. Just a matter of how many days it takes!


EMSC have just come down to 6.0 Mw

Actually not a bad quick list for the PC as well.

By the way they have finally sorted out the KML file for Google Earth which now goes to the new pages instead of the old ones. You will find it at the bottom of the feeds page.

Alternatively just download it from this link USGS Earthquakes KML Feed

Another mixed signal on boundaries.

In the poster the plate edge is way north and they say

intraplate event, occurring almost 300 km south of the main plate boundary, and since the event likely did not break the surface, precise identification of the causative fault is difficult at this time

their Real Time gives much nearer to shore and to the earthquake, implying not INTRA but INTER

Huh? A 5.1 & a 4.9!
I'm not seeing anything listed anywhere else though!
Wonder what's up? Wonder if it's on the seismos?

I was surprised to see the 2.6 in Hawaii near Oahu too!
I used to live there, didn't remember any that close.
The 1973 to present map doesn't show any either!

Things that make you say hmmm.....

In a hurry, but I did find this one, can't see it!

Stuff did happen.


Here is a bigger version - click the image

A 'surface wave' it might be, but I don't think it is an earthquake. It actually looks more like a fluid event.

I am going to have a little download of the data and see what I can hear.

The seismos that show the 'event' the closest are those that are pretty much ON the great salt lake.




Where a station has a normal and an accelerometer (N) channel the N channel is not really showing anything.

I know nothing about the great salt lake. Could this be an ice related event?

thanks for checking that out, definitely something happened.
When I seen it on LDEO and not USGS I came here expecting the Americans to be all over it.4.9 and 5.1 is pretty big for an ice crack.
Does the Salt Lake even get ice? no idea.
