What's up with the Tuktoyaktuk Canada 4.8 quake. I've never seen one that far northeast or in that area before.

I got a toothache. So, I'll blame that.
I hope I'm completely wrong. All I'm going to say is that is Mexico.

Several moments pass. I'm staring out the window. Then I remember I said that's all I'm going to say and now I need to shut myself up and try to stick to that simple task of shutting up and not going on and on and did you know there's a debate about the comma, i don't care... sshhh

note to self, minor panic attack, go lay down

Since this thread is titled Quake Watch, I wanted to get feedback on the quakes I've been watching.


The six magnitude 2.5-3.8 quakes in central Idaho over the past day caught my attention. I vaguely remembered a strong earthquake in that vicinity decades ago, so I went-a-googling.

The Borah Peak earthquake of 1983 was a magnitude 6.9 on the Richter scale, 7.0-7.5 on the Moment Magnitude scale (depending on who you ask), and a shaking intensity of IX Modified Mercali; the largest earthquake in Idaho state history.

This image shows all of the mag 2.0 and larger earthquakes since 1980, within 80 kms of the 1983 epicenter. The 6 most recent are in orange, about 70 kms away from the big mag 7.

USGS( 1980 to present, mag 2+, withing 80 km of 1983 epicenter)

This image only shows 1 Jan 2010 to present. Not much going on until yesterday, and I didn't see any swarmy-type activity like today.


Reading the historical reports from USGS and the Idaho Geological Survey, I learned this slip was due to normal-style faulting, to the NW along the Lost River fault, complete with 34 kms of surface rupture, and unfortunately, 2 fatalities.

There was one earthquake (foreshock?) on the USGS link above, 16 days before the Borah Peak earthquake.
It's location? Just a few kilometers west of the current mini swarm.

If you follow the trace of the Lost River fault to the NW, you end up in the location of the current earthquakes. Is it possible this fault extends farther northwest than shown on the map?

Does anyone think we are seeing a ramp up to another impressive Idaho earthquake?

Anyone else getting 404'd on all of the IRIS websites?

Update:
Everything seems to be back to normal. They must have had a small server issue.

I never knew Earthquakes were this common. Wow, I've learned a lot from this website in the last few days. There hasn't been any Earthquakes in my area for about a year now. I'm sure there's one due soon.

yeah they shut down for something, there was a notice about it on all their pages early morning NZDT, from memory it was for 25 minutes.
I forgot all about it later and went on Wilber3 to fetch something and it was 404'd, then I remembered.
Maybe they are installing something new?

Have any of my fellow quake watchers checked out the latest Weekly Geophysical Report?

Yes, you read that correctly, it has been more than 116 days since the world experienced a magnitude 7.0-7.9 earthquake; over 300 days since the last mag 8+.

Couple the above with only 2 volcanoes showing activity (above the 17 ongoing eruptions, globally).

As Puterman, the author of this valuable resource stated, "Very quiet indeed".

Spooky quiet...

Another "Very quiet indeed" factor is the Sun's output. I have often said that these two are related. The energy from the Sun powers the Earth so it makes sense at this time to be going through a quiet phase.

Yes, been watching this area in Idaho too. The other day I found a few articles & photos on the older big earthquake in 1983. Also I have been trying to figure out if the newest swarm is in or just on the outside of Twin Peaks caldera just NW of Challis.

This link has several pages of pics from the big earthquake. New springs formed & flooded areas & other springs suddenly dried up.

What sort of time span are you "its quiet" people referring to?
We just had a 5 x M6's in the last 7 days!
Thats Mw's, there is an even higher number of M5.7+/- type quakes as well if you read EMSC

M6 Santa Cruz (EMSC)

USGS have it as 5.7mb at present.

@Muzzy: despite the recent little spate of mag 6 quakes it is never the less quiet overall and specifically in terms of the major energy outputs.


Thats Mw's, there is an even higher number of M5.7+/- type quakes as well if you read EMSC


Sorry but you are looking at a short period in isolation. The average annual number of Mag 5 earthquakes based on a rolling 52 week period is at the lowest it has been since 2002, lower in fact. I have not gone back further yet but there is no way it is busier now than say 2 years ago. We were getting an annualised 6500 M5 and now we are getting 4100. Currently it is quieter than before Banda Aceh. Make what you will of that.

The energy of all Mag 6 quakes (USGS Published) this year (including today) is the equivalent of a single Mag 7.4

There hasn't been any Earthquakes in my area for about a year now. I'm sure there's one due soon.


I regret to have to inform you that the incidence of earthquakes in classified is classified. The prediction of quakes for that area is also classified. We are unable to give you any statistics about classified as that is is classified information.

I can tell you however based on the information we have........... no sorry that is also classified.

OK oh Master Quake Jockey . . .

Please put on your QP hat . . . Quake Prophet hat . . .

So, in order of probability from your QHS Quake Hunch Sense . . . what are the 3 areas you suspect may let loose first and mostest with a 7.0 and/or above?

I happen to be of the opinion that GIVEN ALL your pouring over such massive amounts of data for so long

THAT

YOUR fine noggin knows more than you realize you know about such things.

Trying to pry a bit of that out of your noggin. LOL.

Thank you for your lovely post.

I've saved the .pdf you linked above. So far, I've only skimmed it, but want to read it thoroughly--I love reading about the rock units/geologic history of places. It's such a detective story, sussing out the details of how the topography came to look the way it does today.

From that .pdf, I think that tiny swarm of recent quakes was just outside the Twin Peaks caldera, but still within the larger Challis Magmatic group. No worries about those quakes being volcanic in nature, that volcanism ended 45 million years ago.

The photos from the Borah Peak earthquake are incredible. Hopefully nothing more happens there for a long while.
