That confirms what I added to my earlier post about the MTL, same "Fault" as the quake in Awaji Island, Osaka Bay in April last year.

Oita, Kyushu update @ the 4hr mark, NIED data
interactive map
I have defined the search area to within 90km east and west and 50km north and south of the Mainshock, basically the Inland Sea.

With the magic of GPS Visualizer and Google Earth I have created the Japan Median Tectonic Line, that USGS managed to overlook.
It is now showing on that previous Map file , along with the updated 4hr plots of the Inland Sea 6.6ML today (or yesterday, depending which side of the Meridian you are in.) Admire the smooth MTL transition into the Plate Boundries each end!
I have saved the short link of that map, so I will update it with new data as time goes on, saves having to code a whole load of extra new lines every time.
* another acronym to remember ......... MTL
I wonder how many others there are worldwide???

I've got 15 potential M6+ quakes withing the boundries of the MTL, (approx 100km each side of the Line), since 1970, off IRIS, some of them may be bigger on JMA, largest IRIS have is a 6.8 in 1995. JMA only goes back to 2002 though. Will see.

That 6.3Mw (6.6ML) Kyushu quake has been upgraded on NIED to 7.0ML!!
Aqua are still saying 6.3Mw, so not sure what this means, except a difference of TTNT energy released based on the 7.0 number, (7.0=476,879TTNT ~ 6.6=119,787TTNT), so what they are saying is, it was 4 times as powerful as they first thought!!!


A couple of early aftershocks have been removed, incl. the first one, a 4.1ML. Now showing the first a/s , a 3.5ML, at the 3:59 (mm:ss) mark.
Still only 25 aftershocks in 19 hours, that is not many at all for a J quake, could be more to come to this area yet.
Won't know for sure whats really going on until the JMA Unified Hypocenter Catalog releases the reviewed data later today for the 14th.
screenshot of the NIED download page (just to prove what I say, you have to register to get these JMA pages)

edit on 03u727214 by muzzy because: add TTNT numbers

edit on 03u727214 by muzzy because: missed a y

edit on 03000000727214 by muzzy because: reset the map zoom, wasn't showing all the icons, a GMaps glitch (tile defect)


must be where this event is headed, even the Focal parameters of the event page has changed too.



edit on 03u727214 by muzzy because: (no reason given)


still time to edit....

I found this new page on NIED
deep low-frequency tremor in southwest Japan

just clicking through the dates backwards and found this on 2 days map images



maybe this had something to do with the (now) 7.0ML??
cross referencing those with the interactive maps I do ........ bingo!!

We have debated the plate tectonic theory. And, the alternatives. I'm not saying that "other" things don't cause earthquakes (solar, moon, weather, weather, water, magnetism, etc...), it's just that I see the plates and would have to say it's the best model.

We humans will believe what we see over what we hear, every time. We're hard-wired.

www.delhidailynews.com...

I've seen plate tectonics in the skin of cream in my coffee mug. And elsewhere.

I'll leave this new study about water in diamonds. If the findings help in the proof that water exists deep within the earth, it begs the question, how did it get there. The idea of slabs of plate being pushed deep into the mantle would do the trick. I don't think water would be present there from earth's origin. All the water within the planet would have surfaced billions of years ago. No, the water found in the diamonds is relatively new.

The world wide quakes seem to be picking up slightly. We had Northern California, down through Mexico, along with Central America, and now South America. The whole spine seems to be tingling.


Oops, forgot the diamond article.

Olivine

The little Mag 3.3 that followed 28 seconds after the 5.2, near the water's edge at Crescent City, CA, is interesting.
It was most likely triggered by the larger offshore quake.


This 3.3 must have been a "phantom" quake, because it has gone missing from the USGS listings.

What is goofy, is that USGS changed the 3.3 link to show the Mag 5.2 data. Here is what you get if you do a search on USGS
for event ID# NC72184461


M3.3 - 22km S of Bertsch-Oceanview, California 2014-03-13 19:12 ...
1 day ago ... Minimum Distance, 38.0 km (0.34°). Travel Time Residual, 0.19 sec. Azimuthal Gap, 227°. Review Status, AUTOMATIC. Event ID, nc72184461 ...
earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/nc72184461


Anyway, there are still quite a few small aftershocks occurring near the mag 6.8 epicenter, they just aren't all being posted.

Plate Boundary station 046 shows them nicely.

Not good.

Is that where it was located? Yes we are on a pressure point on the San Andreas around here. ABC7 that has the quake cam is not even mentioning it. Ok husband reading that 4.4 near taft. Then at one at 3.9 at Castaic dam, just south of the first one, and then a third one of 4.0 at lake Isabella, just east of taft.

Hmmm. I only felt one.

The first second and third quakes have now disappeared, leaving just the Mag 4.4 ESE of Maricopa Mag 3.9 N of Castaic.

Give it 5 minutes; the details will change again....

IYONADA SETONAIKAI, KYUSHU, JAPAN (official name for it now)
at the 30hr mark only 19 aftershocks!!

There are quite a few different magnitudes for the quake now;
6.6ML from NIED preliminary data on the day and the Backnumber of Recent Large Earthquake page (showed the pdf)
7.0ML from NIED preliminary data the next day and the Backnumber of Recent Large Earthquake page (showed you the 2nd pdf of that)
*the NIED preliminary data doesn't show whether its from displacement or velocity
6.3Mw from AQUA based on the CMT
6.3Mw from IRIS/GCMT

latest data from JMA has
6.2ML from JMA calculated on the displacement
6.1ML from JMA calculated using velocity


the JMA public site says 6.1, so at least we know now that that figure when posted is based on velocity.

stuck with the preliminary data for now, and that is proving unreliable.

Hey Muzzy, seems to be one missing from 1986/7.

Everything else is around every 7 years.
