Numerous threads have come and gone regarding the possible detonation of a nuke off of the East Coast of America. It's been done - names have been been called, fingers pointed and threads closed down because people just can't play nice.
That is not where this thread is intended to go, so bear with me for a minute...
In reading the content of the discussions on this topic, I did however come across some factual data that is very intriguing to me and leaves me with some unanswered questions.

For quite some time now - since the 2008 earthquake swarm at Yellowstone, I have been interested in earthquakes and try to keep abreast of current events regarding them. I'm far, far from being an expert, an authority, or even someone who could be considered to have a large amount of knowledge on the subject.
But...
I do keep a watchful eye on the EQ happenings across the globe and have stared at endless seismograph displays and waveforms with a rudimentary understanding at best. In doing so, I have seen many different waveforms and have tried to understand their significance and differences in appearance.

When the Magnitude 4.4 event occurred on October 8th as seen in the link below, I have to admit that I thought to myself - "Hmm... Odd. I've never seen one in that area before".
USGS Event Data

Then, the conspiracy and all of the threads on the subject followed and I again thought to myself "HMMMMMMM"... (caps and more M's included to emphasize the amount of hmming taking place).

Ok, here's the meat:
Different events have different waveforms and signatures. While it is difficult to determine the origin of a particular event solely based on the 'look' of a waveform, different events do appear differently.
Here are examples of various waveforms:

Source

Now, for an example of a documented Nuclear blast and it's waveform - accompanied by a comparison of an event that was suspected by the U.S. State and Defense Departments as having "explosive characteristics", though according to seismologists, was clearly an earthquake due to various other indicators including location, presence of aftershocks and the examination of the P/S Wave time-delay ratios for the particular event.

Source
As quoted from the article:

A recent earthquake near a former Soviet nuclear test site has tested mechanisms for monitoring the test-ban treaty. Technical systems passed with flying colours, but relevant US agencies could have done better.
Early on the morning of Saturday 16 August 1997, there was a small seismic event in the Kara Sea, about 100 kilometres from the nuclear test site on the far northern island of Novaya Zemlya now used by Russia for nuclear weapons research (Fig. 1). Within days, seismologists located the event in an area where it could only have been an earthquake. Yet at the end of August, spokesmen for the US State and Defense departments described the event as having "explosive characteristics", and in late September, officials of other US agencies were still characterizing it as "unresolved" (George Ullrich, Defense Special Weapons Agency), or "lending itself to alternative interpretations" (Bob Bell, National Security Council).
These statements suggested that the seismic signals might have been generated, not by an earthquake, but by a nuclear test. Underground nuclear explosions were carried out by the Soviet Union at the Novaya Zemlya test site from 1964 to 1990, but Russia and many other countries signed the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) in September 1996, thus making a commitment not to carry out nuclear explosive tests for any purpose.
To a seismologist, the evidence is straightforward: the event took place several tens of kilometres offshore to the southeast of Novaya Zemlya, in an area where water depths are around 400 metres. Nuclear explosive testing is not credible in such an ocean environment unless there is other evidence, such as signals from hydroacoustic or radionuclide detectors, or the presence of a vast and complicated drilling operation. The event must therefore have been an earthquake.


Now, lets take a look at the signature for the October 8th 'event':


I have to admit - When I first looked at the webicorder signature, my first thought was "Well Heck Hank, that looks an awful lot like other examples of nuclear test signatures that I have seen". Now after reading the commentary and viewing the examples linked to above, I'm not so sure.
It actually looks more like the example above of the suspected nuclear event that was explained to be an earthquake by those with knowledge of such things.
One thing that still raises an eyebrow is the absence of aftershocks. As quoted above, that was one of the indicators that the event in question was actually an earthquake and not a nuclear test as suspected.
The other indicator was the P-Wave and S-Wave data.

I still just can't quite detach the look of the waveform with it's initial then subsequent rumblings from well - you know...


Now, this is where I turn on the Bat Beacon... Calling all quake gurus! You know who you are!
I would invite any of our numerous quake aficionados to chime in, your input is invaluable. By the same token, I would discourage the kind of speculation and discussion which has shut down the numerous aforementioned threads. Are there any conflicting opinions in your community regarding the October 8th event and it's data or is it pretty cut-and-dry? If so, why? What is the data??
Perhaps a discussion on the P/S intervals would be a good place to start, at which point I'll most likely no longer be able to contribute anything but the sound of gurgling as I try to absorb an inkling of what you're saying.


My intention, is to spark an intelligent debate based on the hard data. Not on anyone's feelings about our fearless leader, what AJ has to say about it, the state of the nation, etc etc etc.
Let's not kill this one too!
You have my opinion on the subject, which again is "HMMMMM".

That's all I got, you may commence...

I think this is relevant. Everything I look at tells me this is an anomaly. The following is a map showing all quakes, all sizes from 1898 - 2003. I don't see ANY in the location of the "reading" in question. Does that seem significant to anyone else?

This is a post i put on one of the extracted threads.

I think it was very different from other recorded and documented underwater quakes.

Below taken from another site.


The area where this 4.5 earthquake was recorded, no other earthquake has ever been recorded before.
Inexplicable 4.5 Earthquake in an area that NEVER has earthquakes. 620 miles off of the coast of South Carolina under about a mile of water. A VERY SHALLOW Earthquake in a sand wash.
earthquake-report.com...

The amplitude (Amp) column i would surmise that this quake hit with a bang and then rumbled for 15-20 seconds.

For the sake of argument here is another undersea quake for comparison. this one went "low, quick high then long low" amplitude.

Very shallow? It was 9 miles deep. That's not deep but it's not very shallow either.

ETA: Nine miles is in the shallow zone for earthquakes, but so are a large number of earthquakes every year. What's different between this one and those?

Obviously it's not current according to the creation date AND like I mentioned, it doesn't show quakes from 2004 and on. Still, in the 114 years of quakes recorded and shown on the map, there IS NOT ONE in that location. That's the point.

I'm looking for a map of earthquakes over that past 10 years. Odds are the map will show none or one depending on the creation date of said map.

But there are lots of places that don't have earthquakes, but have them suddenly. They would have had to not only move the nuclear weapon with no one but Alex Jones noticing, they would have had to dig down 9 miles to place it. All without leaving a single seismic signature that they were digging (digging also leaves signatures).

Page 3 shows the seismic signatures of digging using various tools. There should have been some kind of signature of them digging to place the weapon. Where is it?

Ok so if it was a nuke, why?

I don't understand why people "thwarting" a nuke America plan would still detonate at all...

Why not disable all 3 ?

Answer so far is possibly "not enough data".
As seen in the example that you linked to, one of the best methods is to use the frequency analysis data, which for this 2013 event, we do not have.

Furthermore, there is the complicating factor that vertical seismometers give slightly different traces than horizontal traces. Which ones are comparing with? And different mechanical arrangements and siting of seismometers give different traces. You'd really want to see the traces from a number of increasingly distant seismometers.

And also the complicating factor of filters. Earthquakes create waves at short, medium and long wavelengths. A whole bunch. Lots of them. But you can optimise your seismometer for the events you are specifically interested in. eg. People interested in local quakes want short period data, people interested in distant quakes on the other side of the world want long period data.

My own opinion is that without the frequency data, for which you'd need the actual raw data from the seismometer and a program like Amaseis (or is it Winquake that I'm thinking of?) that can separate it out, you could make a case either way with what we have here so far depending on your inclination.
But a depth of 9.3 miles is unlikely to be human made. Who the hell would drill a hole that deep to set off a pointless nuke, and without anybody noticing the drilling equipment?

[1] Lindsey Graham said a nuke would go off in South Carolina if bla bla bla....
[2] Nukes go missing and transported to an unknown location on the east coast.
[3] 2 top high ranking military men in charge of nukes are fired.
[4] A 4.5 [relatively shallow //below 60 KMs] earthquake happens off the coast of South Carolina in an area where quakes almost never happen.

I have been researching engineered quakes for about 3 years.....It looks to me like man made quakes are between 10 and 60 kilometers deep....

The weight of evidence points a nuke going off in the South Caroline business IMHO...

The depths of quakes are not always known...in which case a depth is estimated....When you see a quake depth at
10 kilometers it means they don't know the depth...& BTW >>USGS is a government agency...they do what they are told.....There is plenty of evidence that USGS has been under estimating the strength of quakes for the last several years.....

They can measure pretty close where the quake is. Even if they are government agencies, there are others that aren't part of the government that agree with the depth.

No, the seismo where this was picked up was a long way from the event and the waveform has been considerably attenuated. At ~1000km it is past the point where it can be considered local and is a teleseism.

Reds under the bed! The U.S. Defense Department sees commies and enemies of the State everywhere, even amongst it's own citizens. Do NOT whatever you do show them their own shadow!

As regards this event, consider this.

First the wave form as records at TA.Y60A looks like a teleseism


Click the image to enlarge

Second consider the depth. 30.198°N 74.084°W depth=14.9km (9.3mi)

Can the Russians really drill down nearly 15 kilometres in nearly 4000 metres of water without being detected by the mightiest Nation on Earth. If it can there is hope for us all yet.

Can the Russians also better the depth of the Kola Superdeep Borehole


However, because of higher-than-expected temperatures at this depth and location, 180 °C (356 °F) instead of expected 100 °C (212 °F), drilling deeper was deemed unfeasible and the drilling was stopped in 1992.[4] With the projected further increase in temperature with increasing depth, drilling to 15,000 m (49,000 ft) would have meant working at a 300 °C (570 °F), where the drill bit would no longer work


That was on land. This event was closer to the hot stuff than the lithospheric block Russia sits on.


The Kola borehole penetrated about a third of the way through the Baltic continental crust, estimated to be around 35 kilometres (22 mi) deep


There have been longer boreholes since, but.......


However, in terms of depth below the surface, the Kola Superdeep Borehole still retains the world record as of November 2013.


If the event had recorded a depth of 1km or so I would grant that there might be some cause for further investigation and conspiracy theorising, but at ~15km it is out of the question that this was a nuke.

Yes indeed, like the recent Mag 4 off the West coast of Ireland. A single isolated incident. Of course it must have been the Americans testing a nuke.

You can get the data you require from here as sound files or waveform files or seismograms for a huge range of instruments and channels. The waveform I showed above was unfiltered from TA.Y60A.BHZ, but I could have got it from the other channels or another seismo. That was just the first that came up in the public list.

Here is BHE

Thanks for that alfa - I would be interested to see others findings as they sift through the available information and form their postulations.

Thanks PM, so the depth alone pretty much puts it to rest then. I do imagine that there will be those who will some in-depth investigation, making comparisons to past events and what not. Still interested in seeing their conclusions.

On a side note, I'm just happy that my Bat Beacon works. It called-in the big guns!

Thanks for this post Cathar. These were the same questions I was about to ask. I was wondering if there is any other source for the depth of this quake other than the USGS.

EMSC have the quake at the original depth of 48km. USGS originally had 48.22km but changed it since.
