Someone not paying attention?

Just thought it was odd.

Hmm, up around Noatak, AK is getting a little active. Looking at the main & largest aftershock, I wonder if this is going to toss out something even bigger?

a reply to: Olivine
and
a reply to: BO XIAN
Not to take away from what Olivine was saying, but to expand further (link is on that page actually) what is happening Lower North Island, NZ, seems to be the slow-slip events may be compensating for the lack of mega-thrust quakes in this area. Each article contradicts the other. one says the plate boundary is locked, the other says its slow slipping.
If it keeps slow slipping then the risks of a big mega-thrust quake diminish. That's how I read it anyway.
There is a good animation on the page I'm talking about, shows the slow-slip areas 2009-2012. 2010 and 2011 had more of them.
Couple of screenshots


That page also has a similar map to the one Olivine posted, showing the stuck area, but with the slow-slip areas added, however the animation contradicts this, (see 2nd image above with blue areas off Cape Turnagain)

Interesting conversion on Geofon, 1 decimal point in mb converts to 2 -3 decimal points in Mw, 101km difference in depth between the two quakes

09:15:52.6 UTC, 6.2mb, 6.5Mw, 516km
09:25:15.1 UTC, 6.1mb, 6.3Mw, 615km

6.1mb = 21,301.409 TTNT / 6.3Mw = 42,501.898 TTNT, 99.5% difference (2 decimal points)
6.2mb = 30,089.039 TTNT / 6.5Mw = 84,802.435 TTNT, 182% difference (3 decimal points)

comparing quake with quake;
6.2mb-6.1mb = 8,787.631 TTNT, 41% more energy released
6.5Mw-6.3Mw = 42,300.537 TTNT, 99.5% more energy released
I'll never understand how they work that out!

Much appreciate the clarifications and images.

Interesting.

Not sure what to make of them. LOL.

Interesting that the 'experts' are all over the countryside, too.

Y'all are still the supreme experts in my book.

Blessings,

This one got me a little curious, it is the biggest one there since a long long time.
I hope this does not mean too much towards the fault lines at Fujisan.

Probably, but it is just the USGS insistence on using these stupid locations instead of something simple and recognisable. Inside the US, because that is all one region in FE, it would probably be better to use Counties or whatever your local administrative area is, qualfied by the state in case of duplicated county names. Makes much more sense to me.

If the 'locals' can't fathom out these locations why in hell are USGS using them??????? Dumb I say.

While I am here, just testing something

2014-05-05 11:08:43, 19.702, 99.682, 6.0, 7.3 Thailand (733)

Did I miss someone posting that ?? (Apologies if I did but that was purely a test of the code for the line regardless of the quake.)

 


No - don't see it so here is the full text

I only see one decimal point on GFZ for the Mw value (which I believe is not using the same calculation by the way). The conversion from 6.1 mb to Mw gives ~6.28 so the value is rounded as the full conversion is 6.28343, but the mb value is rounded as well so just how much 'error' creeps in?

6.2 mb converts to 6.36 Mw (or 6.36156) which would round to 6.4 NOT 6.5 (which is why I think these are separate calcs)


I'll never understand how they work that out!


It is just the same as the 'difference'

Taking the 6.1mb:
6.1mb = 21,301.409 TTNT / 6.3Mw = 42,501.898 TTNT,

The 6.3 is 21,200.49 TTNT greater than the 6.1. That value is nearly twice (because as we know 0.2 mb or Mw represents a quake that is twice as strong)

21,200.49 * 100 / 21,301.409 = 99.52622852 (rounded to your 99.5% difference)



comparing quake with quake;
6.2mb-6.1mb = 8,787.631 TTNT, 41% more energy released
6.5Mw-6.3Mw = 42,300.537 TTNT, 99.5% more energy released


The same is applied to this

If however you use the straight conversion then the second quake is 6.36 not 6.5 thus the calculation becomes (in round figures)

6.4Mw-6.3Mw = 60,035.53 - 42,501.90 = 17.533.63 = 41.25375571% which rounded is 41% just as you have for the first one.

This actually proves that the Mw calculations are not the same

someone may have posted this but i thought this was kinda nuts "rare earthquake warning for oklahoma". a 5.0 is expected within the next month:

It's rare that USGS gives a warning. This graphic shows the uptick in Oklahoma earthquakes that has caused concern.


USGS news release

Whether all of these quakes are related to wastewater-injection or not, is still unknown; but to go from averaging only 2 magnitude 3.0 or higher quakes a year to over 140 in 5 months...something is brewing under the OK soil.

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.


The EQ warning for Ok does not surprise me one bit.
I have no doubt it is going to get seriously rocked.

I did not realize that the USGS link I posted was a real time pic of recent quakes.

I figured it would freeze the page I cut and pasted.

The two quakes I was referring to were on the south end of Cascadia, in what I think is the part of the fault that is most locked
