I now have a spatially accurate count of the daily number of Mag 4.5-5.99 for each day from 2001 to 2012. This enables me to make a very long chart
and visually identify drops.
The first one I picked at random turned out to be before the Mag 8.0 at Samoa in September 2009. Remember that I picked what looked like a dip and
then identified the quake that caused the spike and not picked a quake and went to find the dip.

This one is masked slightly by the effect of three mag 6 quakes - Bhutan, Macquarie Island Region and Off Coast Of Jalisco. Mexico - but there is a
clear touchdown before the Mag 8.
It is too late now to do any more but I can see others, which I will look at tomorrow if I get time.
PS. The touch down after the two big ones may not appear to have produced much but the rise after it is this one:
2009-10-24 14:40:44, -6.136, 130.384, 6.9, 134.2, Banda Sea
The touchdown right at the end was immediately before this
2009-11-24 12:47:14, -20.640, -174.068, 6.8, 10.0, Tonga
Another biggish one.
