Can some one please tell me which plates are most active. Or explain to me whats happening right now. I've noticed that there is a lot of pushing back and forth between the plates. And there has been a lot of new quakes in different parts of he world.
I have learned so much on this thread. Thanks for all the hard work y'all have done.

click on the LDEO link in my last post, the red squares are where all the action is at, that is on the list
short answer is the Indo/Australian Plate on the African side.

Everytime I see a lot of 5+ see popping all over the world, I see some potential for a bigger one to release all the stress... especially if I see 2 close ones in the indonesia/sumatra area. There is really some potential for a bigger one down there. Like many times before.

I am somehow happy that I don't live in this area

We have been lacking 5 mags for a week or more....so ya, I agree some big shakes are a comin'

Either Indonesia or the west coast of S. America.

But then again, I ain't no seer or spirit jockey....so who knows.

Thank you muzzy.

I have a better understanding of what's happening now.

That is true, I was observing it and wondered where all the 5 ones disappeared. So I really thought there would be a bigger one soon, but now the 5s are coming back to life so I hope nothing big will follow.

Well the last big one was just 5 days ago so I don't think we'll see a big one for the next few weeks.

There's typically a big one (over 7.0) every month or so.

I came across this article and thought others may find it interesting...Source




“The thinking has been that an earthquake could either occur on the southern San Andreas fault or on the northern San Andreas fault — that the creeping segment is separating it into two halves,” Lapusta said. “But this study shows that if an earthquake penetrates that creeping area in a certain way, it could rupture through it.”

The San Andreas wouldn’t necessarily snap as the fault in the model did, she said: “Hopefully the creeping segment is such that it doesn’t have the propensity for weakness. But without examining further, you can’t say.”

Such an investigation might include further computer simulations, laboratory experiments or digging along the creeping portion of the San Andreas to look for evidence of extremely large slips in the ancient past.

By looking at a fault relatively close to its surface — no more than tens of yards deep — paleogeologists can see whether very large earthquakes ever ruptured through to the surface, Lapusta said. Scientists can also drill to greater depths to collect rock samples, as they did to study the Chelungpu fault.

Kenneth Hudnut, a geophysicist at the U.S. Geological Survey in Pasadena who was not involved in the research, said that the study sounded “a warning message.”

“We’re realizing we need to worry more about these things we’ve been calling barriers,” he said, adding that the Tohoku-Oki quake wasn’t the only recent disaster making researchers reconsider fault segments once thought to be “toothless” — temblors in the Indian Ocean, Chile, Haiti and China had also given pause.

“The more big earthquakes we’ve seen around the world, the more we’ve realized that there are some deficiencies in our models,” he said. “Everyone’s taking a second look at what we thought was worst-case.”

Hudnut emphasized that an extreme quake powerful enough to blast through the supposedly stable midsection of the San Andreas was unlikely.

But if one did strike, he said, it might put unexpected strain on California’s emergency response systems. Planners had always assumed that responders from one part of the state would be available to supply aid in the other.



Awe it won't happen but if it does your screwed....

Well it will at some point.

Just a matter of time. San Andreas and Cascadia WILL go off and when it does, probably tens of thousands will die.

If you believe in biblical prophecy then you know that the biggest and baddest of the earthquakes we have seen in human history are only a warm up act for the one that is to happen in the tribulation times.

From the book of revelation, Chapter 6 Vs 12/15 in the Geneva Bible...




12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and lo, there was a great earthquake, and the sun was as black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon was like blood.

13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, as a fig tree casteth her green figs, when it is shaken of a mighty wind.

14 And heaven departed away, as a scroll, when it is rolled, and every mountain and isle were moved out of their places.

15 And the Kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in dens, and among the rocks of the mountains,


But if you don't believe in the bible then you can stop worrying, at least until it happens anyway.

For those that use RSOE EDIS

RSOE EDIS

It may be a glitch or a change. The list of EQs is limited to every thing over 2.0 while the map is now showing a lot of EQs less than 2.0. Makes some regions look really busy.

I know a lot of you do not like this feed, I find it useful if it is read properly. Note that many EQs are shown twice, depending on where they get the info from in the first place.

I hadn't noticed a downturn in mag 5's, suppose it depends on what/who you follow.for your information
I find this EMSC option handy for a quick look. www.emsc-csem.org...
average 5 a day it seems, the odd day there was only one, but its pretty steady if you look back through a couple of pages.

I think I like EMSC better than USGS!

Here is a quake that happened on 11/11/2011 for which there is a change in ANSS upgrading it to 6.1 Mw.

I have the details here but my point is that whilst the USGS page is gone and long forgotten the EMSC page is still alive and showing data.

Also still available on GFZ Potsdam

I saw that. For a while they were about all that were showing on the USGS 7 day page.

I wonder if all the little swarms we have been seeing the last few days are an indication of something big about to pop.
