I think fracturing apart is the more likely scenerio

Maybe a big one due for Fiordland, NZ, been a couple of M4s there in the last few days, has been pretty quiet since 16/02/2014. Christchurch had a 4.2 yesterday as well NZST, so things are moving again down south after a quiet spell.

There's a map key at the bottom of the page it tells you what the markers mean. Apparently it means 'tsunami station in event mode (with in previous 24 hours)'

I have no idea what it means

so how long have the USGS heliplots been back up?
guess I missed the memo


So did I, and thank you Nyiah for bringing it to our attention.

I have spent some time this afternoon getting them back into the QVSData program. More on that later.

M3.7 - 11km SSW of Guthrie, Oklahoma 2014-04-13 20:02:21 UTC

USGS

I drove through Oklahoma about 3 years ago and got so creeped out going through Oklahoma City because I kept thinking about a big earthquake there. My brother told me to shut up because we were right in the middle of the city on the freeway, bad place for a big EQ. So my question is to the EQ experts...

All of these earthquakes there, is no one worried about a major earthquake?
What is the biggest in that area?
Why is the ground shaking so much in this area?

Is it really frakking?

I just don't buy that.

I can't find it right now, but there have been studies that have shown a uptick in EQ activity since the fracking began in earnest. Ohio just put some serious crimps on the fracking industry because there were multiple EQ's happening where none had happened before.

Ah, here they are.

Many more out there

Oklahoma is not known at all for strong earthquakes, but that's only in recent history. We've had only two confirmed 5+ magnitude earthquakes since statehood.

What we do know is that there were some prior to Oklahoma becoming a state - the earliest recorded one that I know of was reported by Fort Gibson, which is in east central Oklahoma. This may have been in the 5-7+ range, depending on how far away it was. We don't really know, but I recall reading in an old book that it was 7+.

From the geological record, there's the Meers fault, near the Wichita Mountains - far to the south and west of current activity (over 150km). It's the only visible fault from the air. Estimates of that put its last major earthquake at 1300 years ago with a strength of between 6.5 and 7 magnitude.

A funny thing - if you look at this last link, it also lists 14 historic earthquakes (4.0+ magnitude). We've had half that many in the last month: 4.0M on 3/21, 4.1M and 2 4.3M on 3/30, 4.2M on 4/6, 4.2M on 4/7, and 4.1M on 4/10. According to one scientist, we've had 13 4.0+ M prior to 2010, 20 4.0+ M since 2010, and 7 of them were in the last month.

Oklahoma Earthquakes
Southern Oklahoman Aulacogen & Mid Continent Rift Connection?
Links:
Definition of Aulacogen: en.wikipedia.org...
Big tectonic events that affected Oklahoma & surrounding areas: www.ogs.ou.edu...
Very interesting info on Oklahoma Geology (All pages) but I was struck by Page 19 due to it showing the mid-continent rift running through southern Kansas & Northern OK and not following the Mississippi River as shown on a lot of maps. It also looks to run where some of these recent earthquakes have been happening. (Yes I know the fracking may have something or a lot to do with these but what about the underlying geology could it be...) Any thoughts ATS geology seekers?

They are none other than the USGS and the Gov telling them to do so. Hiding high priory quakes and events from the public to avoid panic.

Ok now I feel dumb and I apologize in advance if it offends but how can a low magnitude quake in Montana cause fear in people and need to be hidden. Does it have something to do with yellow stone?

yes it does.

Is it possible that it was just an echo from another quake, and they adjusted it because of that? I have seen that happen before.

The last large earthquakes in this area was a 7.3 in 1959 followed by a 6.9 in 1983. These earthquakes caused surface rupture, landslides and numerous aftershocks. In 1959 the Hebgen quake set off land slides and rock falls and effected the man made Hebgen dam which was over-topped by high waves and narrowly survived. The 1983 Borah Peak earthquake (6.9) was felt in Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan.

Are these rumblings stirring this fault or something bigger or are these still aftershocks of the above quakes?

No you didn't.

If you are trying to find it, it is nowhere near South Africa. Fine the southern tip of the African Continent and look down, half way to Antarctica, yes, right down there.

Why does the description not say "Ocean between Africa and Antarctica" It would be much more realistic and sensible but, oh well! Maybe it says a lot about the accuracy of professional seismologists, ie, not very professional!

I know, it has been said before. MAYBE THEY SHOULD GET THERE COLLECTIVE BUTTS INTO GEAR AND CHANGE IT!!!!!

Sometimes, you just need to scream a little.

IT IS BLOODY WELL NOT GOOD ENOUGH YOU THICK CLUNKS!

Now I feel better!
