Hey Puter, thanks for the great quake watch threads and all the info. In regards to El Hierro, they had another 5.0 plus today. Was wondering what your take is on this island and what may or may not occur. Thanks.

Looks like an uptick in small quake activity in southern California today, particularly San Jacinto Fault zone. A few in (yes, IN) and around Salton Sea too. Surprisingly though just one west of the southern end of the Elsinore Fault zone.

I currently count 23 between Brawley and Riverside / San Bernardino. Haven't felt any of them though.

As I was typing this, this one popped up, so make it 24:

M 1.2 - 2km ENE of Anza, California
Time 2013-12-30 20:28:45 UTC-08:00
Location33.565°N 116.655°W
Depth2.7km

El Hierro is of course the newest part of a line of an ongoing hotspot so whether in our brief lifespans of in the geological blink of an eye, or a bit longer, you can rest assured that there will be more earthquakes and more activity and indeed new islands.

Hardly a problem since somewhere in the world it is now 2014, which may explain Muzzy's absence! Probably too busy tying one on at the bottom of the world!

Happy New Year everyone.
Time Zone wise this will be the first quake of 2014, Lake Taupo (super volcano)
9:46 minutes in.
Subject to revision to UTC time when it rolls around in 8 hrs, there will perhaps be another winner.

Oh great! I was just writing about Lake Taupo on another thread! I take it ole Taupo does have little shuffties like this every now and again, or should we be going into 2014 worrying about the big mama?

Happy New Year Puterman and welcome back to the helm. I don't contribute much but I'm an avid follower of Quake watch and appreciate all the time you and Muzzy spend educatin' us seismically-challenged yet eager to learn masses!

I haven't specifically been watching Taupo, but can't say there has been much happening there for a while that I noticed.

Saw a 4.8 pop up for Japan and realize it's been pretty quiet so if the earth is going to let off some steam - let it be several of these smaller ones and far out at sea.

Posting because this is one of my staple threads. Thanks for the work you do. It's up to date and there is always someone there if you feel the need to do more than read. Earthquakes can cause a lot of anxiety for some so being able to discuss them is important when the occasions arises. Lots of education in these threads and I am not aware of another place where one can find this Q & A format (Facebook but who wants to be on Facebook. Sorry - just kidding but no..really).

Anyway - Happy New Year and hope your not staying too busy this year with these (197 pages in 2013 and I cant't see how many posts but it was a lot).

An update to my comment about any unusual trends.

We all are aware of the extraordinary drop in the level of earthquakes during December of last year - only 4 Mag 6+ which must be a record for a December - and you are probably also not aware that the number of converted mag 5 quakes (see my geophysical reports for an explanation) has bottomed and is at a lower level than 2002 and probably much earlier.

I am still working my way back through those.

What you are probably not aware of is that the volcanic eruptions have also gone to an unprecedented low. You may not believe that from media hype but I get alerts for all Google items with the word 'volcano' or 'eruption' - which is a ton of stuff every day - and I filter that for all current reports of volcanic activity of any kind.

Assuming San Miguel continues to Friday then here is the chart that will become this weeks extended volcano chart, and on it you can see that also during December volcanoes actually erupting using the criteria on the chart dropped.

Whilst not quite as quiet on the Category force storms front the latest two larger storms were both at sea. The trend seems to be for a bunching, but overall compared to other years before 2011 there is a decrease. I don't have the charts for that yet but I am working on them.


Click the image to enlarge

The purple is the days where the storm was actually at category force as opposed to the green which is the duration of the storm at the maximum category force attained - an important distinction.

I can't as yet find a major drop in solar output that matches, but I am looking.It may take a while to isolate, but the December figures are not out for a few days yet so we shall see.

Interesting. Thx thx.

Do you suspect that things might be paradoxically 'building' to a 'quiet before the storm?'

Or just quieting down to an unusual but extended lower level of such parallel activities?

Nice work as usual.

Just a note to consider. If you warm a rock, it takes time to build up heat. It also takes considerable time for the rock to cool down after you take the heat away.

There may be significant time lag, quite significant in fact, between solar output and effects that you are searching for. You probably already know this, just thought I would comment.

Thanks for all the work you do and the same goes to Muzzy.

First Felt report for 2014 for me. Just a minor one.
Was just a gentle rocking, no noise or shaking or rattling, only felt it because I was awake and laying there thinking "OMG I need to get up to go to work soon"
39 49 Felt reports, so I wasn't the only one awake at this ungodly hour

May have been predictable, there were a few micro quakes on the eastern shores of Lake Wairarapa on the 30th and 31st Dec 2013, a bit out of the ordinary. Dec2013 NZ

Looks like Puterman was right on the money! Region-wise, this is pretty close to the his prediction anyway.

You nailed it Puterman.
Vanuatu Mag 6.6 (USGS)

It's relatively deep, at 196 kms. Is there more to come?

EMSC Mag 6.6 These are preliminary and will probably be revised (USGS probably more than once, lol).

Geophysical report for 27th December now available. Effectively either this one or the next one could be considered as an 'annual report' for 2013.


Click the image to enlarge

Mag 7 and Mag 8 now both getting well past their sell by date. Looking at South America for the next I think.

Note how the Mag 5 converted curve has flattened. Once this starts rising the next Major or Great earthquake is on the way as far as I can tell from the short data I have so far.
