M1.6 Anthropogenic_event - 4km ENE of Medford, Oregon
2014-12-04 21:13:50 UTC

USGS new terminology? Never seen it before. Exactly what does it mean?

Definition of ANTHROPOGENIC : of, relating to, or resulting from the influence of human beings on nature

Sounds like maybe a mine blast or something.

I like the way Geonet's interactive location map changes as you zoom in (view larger map), starts out a Bing Satellite then changes to plain satellite, then relief road map, and finally a topographical map like you would use to hike a trail
They have come a long way, when I first started watching, it was just a small static map of NZ with a dot on it.
I had them beat for a few years using Google Classic Maps, but now I've gone backwards due to the Google change policy and Geonet have overtaken me with the technology.

I am not sure if anyone has seen this yet ( i did check and found nothing but we all know that doesn't necessarily mean anything!).

Is the big one coming?

It is an article about 2 independent studies on the Cascadia zone that both seem to suggest that the fault is weirdly quiet - they both came to the conclusion that zone is currently locked and therefore potentially building up huge amounts of stress. And when they say quiet, they really do mean quiet, not just in comparison to other subduction zones.

Anyhow, a bit of early weekend Doom Porn for all you fellow connoisseurs


P.s. Other sources available, i just went with the pretty pictures!

if you click the map image below it will go to ikimaps interactive
not quite able to reproduce that map image on ikimaps the same, it zooms right in to the icon, because the quakes are all reported as the same Lat/Long, so you need to click on the zoom out button

I am shocked. This from the man who did a comprehensive study of the lunar effects on quakes and came to no positive conclusions?

I shall take up knitting instead I think.

a reply to: PuterMan
Yes I noticed that recently, first it was up towards Fiji, then Vanuatu, and then the Solomons, its always bigger quakes, they must be posting everything that shows on the SeisComp3 system.
Maybe they have aspirations of Global coverage.

maybe the study was looking at the wrong numbers, could be M5.8 up might show different results, to take allowance for mb to MW conversions etc and the ones that slip below the M6 threshold on review.
I'm not sure I kept the Excel graph, I'll have a look for it.
Another aspect I didn't consider, was if the Moon was pulling away or coming in on the date of the Full Moon, may have an influence,
during this current flurry of M6 quakes, the Moon was pulling away on the full Moon.

There was a small swarm of small quakes at Kawerau, NI, NZ yesterday, thats a Geothermal Field that is tapped for steam for the saw mill there, it pops up every now and again, with no particular reason, wondering if the Moon effects volcanic hot spots too.


edit on 1200000034034014 by muzzy because: (no reason given)


No I didn't save the graph, but just had a quick look at GFZ data M5.8 this year, and in the last 3 months;
last Full Moon was Nov 6 and sure enough there was a M6.6 at New Britain PNG, but then there were another 13 quakes over 5.8 through till Dec6
Oct Full Moon was on the 8th , yes a 6.1 Gulf of California and a 7.0 S East Pacific Rise on the 9th, but also another 8 x M5.8+ quakes through till the Nov6 Full Moon.
Doesn't look like anything has changed.
It must be that by default when there are a series of quakes above M5.8, one goes looking for where the Full Moon is at, and sometimes it does coincide.

Instead of looking at the Full Moon and comparing it to events maybe should be looking at clusters of quakes, for example
15-17/11 there were 5 quakes over 5.8
21-22/11 there were 4 quakes over 5.8
which fits in with the Moon "coming in" 15-27/11

Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO) detections for the period 01/12 to 07/12/2014 UTC

note how the map I made is set on the AntiMeridian, not the Meridian like ikimaps does. Another quirk of ikimaps, being European based.

Panama just got rocked with another one, this time a 6.7:
earthquake.usgs.gov...

They just had a 6.0 only 10 km from this new spot just two days ago.

This could mean trouble ahead for any of those countries near there- Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, or even Columbia. Those are big quakes, and relatively shallow, less than 15 km deep. And getting bigger it appears.

and further to reply by: muzzy
I couldn't find the posts on QW2014 where this was last discussed, was likely in early June this year I think, based on when I did the graphs.
Here are the graphs again anyway, which I found on my ATS image uploads pages


right click view image for full size





So has anything changed in 6 months?
This last flurry of M6's appears to be quite condensed in time
Will look into it and update the 2014 graphs

'
geez, there may be a few minor faults with this ikimaps, but getting views isn't a problem, by the time I posted the map there then came on to ATS to post the map/link and went back to ikimaps to get the link url address it already had 6 visits.
I'm liking the National Geographic Map for the static images, has the undersea terrain without being too dark (like Google Satellite) and the icons stand out quite well. ikimaps doesn't have it available for interactivity though, I get it through GPS Visualiser.
