Tropical Storm 11W.
On the lists right before the Super Volcano Monitoring System list.

Click under the details column, on the far right.
It will give info & the forecasted track.

Yep I missed that one.

Maybe they (everyone else) are busy doing research and are going to bomb the Topic any day with mind blowing revelations and interesting ideas!

One thing I was having a look at yesterday is Solar Flux. I've never really bought into the relationship between Solar Flares and Earthquakes, but every now and again someone will make a comment along these lines. So.............


Emission from the Sun at centimetric (radio) wavelength is due primarily to coronal plasma trapped in the magnetic fields overlying active regions.[20] The F10.7 index is a measure of the solar radio flux per unit frequency at a wavelength of 10.7 cm, near the peak of the observed solar radio emission. F10.7 is often expressed in SFU or solar flux units (1 SFU = 10−22 W m−2 Hz−1). It represents a measure of diffuse, nonradiative heating of the coronal plasma trapped by magnetic fields over active regions. It is an excellent indicator of overall solar activity levels and correlates well with solar UV emissions.
wiki

Solar Ham has a good page of data on these Solar Flux's at www.solarham.net...
To see where the actual Solar Flares fit into that data, there is another page showing those back to 2010 at www.solarham.net...
I've used that data and put it on Monthly graphs with matching (by Time) New Zealand earthquake daily radiated energy release (TTNT) to see if there was a match. Solar Flux graphs

here is the whole 6 months with the M5+'s marked on it;
(click image for larger version, opens in new tab/window)

Short answer is NO relationship
Long answer is, maybe when the Solar Flux is low there is more chance of an M5+, but not always!
OK its only 6 months of data, which is a short period, and it probably would work better when matched against Global M6's. I think I did that before, and still couldn't find any matching.

So there is another thread on here about the gas explosions that occurred in Taiwan today. Seems multiple areas blew at the same time. Looking on the quake map there is a 3.8 that appears in Taiwan. Would this be registering because of the explosion or could a quake have been the cause of the gas line rupture?

a reply to: Vasa Croe
probably not, that quake was 39km away, @ 23.13, 121.02 too far away to cause pipes to rupture at that low magnitude, would have to be right on the spot in Kaohsiung or a M7+
report in your link says "The cause is thought to be gas leaks in the sewage system."
aged piping or poor maintenance

Understanding Global Displacement Wavefields Graphs


doh

never really took much notice of the Event Plots/ Global surface & body wave record sections images on IRIS before, but lately I have been frustrated when doing Significant Events (New Zealand) in not having a Trace Graph of the event to put on the page.
As we all know USGS stopped doing LISS graphs for well over a year in 2013, and they didn't Archive them anyway, so if missed downloading them on the day tough luck. The new version is pretty useless, too smooth.
IRIS have graphs for about 9 days for individual stations, but again once the 9 days are up thats it, they are gone.

The only alternative that I can find is the Global Displacement Wavefields Graphs by IRIS, which ARE archived.
Its taken me a whole day to search and read about what they mean, there isn't much info on the Net about how to read them, but I think I've got the basics.

Each line represents a Station based on distance from the epicenter. Seems obvious now, but I didn't see it previously.

The Stations I've marked on the graphs are taken from Wilber3, you click on the event you want and get the Stations for each event with the distance in degrees from the epicenter, and can match those with the graph image.
I've written a page about the graphs here

Now to get on with the Quake pages!, I'm doing the Gisborne 2007 M6.7 at the moment.

The more I read of IRIS, the less I need USGS

That image GDW was just an example, the first one I have actually used is for the Gisborne 6.6MW just published. Better late than never, was 6.5 years ago!, I remember it like it was yesterday, the defining image of this event was the collapsed verandah on the main street.
Interesting quake, very sparse number of aftershocks, only 567 over 6 months. This is the first clear-cut case worldwide of triggered slow slip right after the mainshock. That's why I went out to the extended period of 6 months, but you can't really see the slow-slip as the events were tremors rather than earthquakes. The series did move west onto land near Gisborne in the later stages though. Slow slip is recorded by GPS rather than seismographs.

Next one is Bligh Sound, Fiordland 6.7 & 6.1 of 15/10/2007, it/they had 1322 aftershocks over a 6 month period.
I'm work backwards with NZ historic eq events.
Wet weather here, a relatively balmy 16C forecast For later on.

And a 6.1 aftershock, too. Something tells me there's probably going to be bigger one for that area soon.

never heard of it, sounds a bit too PC to be real

Ahhh!! The East Caroline Islands

Pacific Island Nations are having a pow-wow in Palau right now, not far away. Arguing about fishing rights, US not offering enough for the Quota Licence, will probably go the the Europeans.

GFZ ahve those the other way around

hard to tell on LISS Port Moresby


sometimes further away is better, Kiritibati, looks like a single event, says 4 minutes apart, can't see that


Penguins @ Antarctica say just one event too

the graphs don't/can't lie!!!!!
so makes you wonder, is there anyone actaully there at USGS? or is it all machined like GFZ?

just noticed how small the images show here
but if you right click and "view image" it shows the full size image
