Awesome job Muzzy!
My brain loves the layout.
Very easy to follow.
What a lot of work!

Interesting to see that from 2000 to 2012,
there were 3 sets of double eqs in the 8's.

I didn't remember that Japan's big one wasn't followed by an 8.
I also didn't know that there had been a 9.6 in my lifetime!
I do remember seeing pictures from the 9.2 in Alaska on the news.
Maybe because that one was in the U.S. it got more coverage?

ONLY 1685 to go???
What's that saying about emptying the ocean with a thimble?!
That's real dedication!!!

Thanks WOQ. Yes, some things jump out that you don't see on the maps or on a list.
1685 graphs may be exaggerating a little, that is back to 314AD which is the first M8 recorded on the M8+map, I am sure there will be years in between when there are no records of M7+ to put on a yearly chart.
Still, if I do one a week, and I live to 90, its do-able

I just did 12 in 2 days.
First goal is to get back to 1910 with the new style.

Well there are 11 now, none under 4.5

Is this odd?

I'm essentially earthquake illiterate, but doesn't that generally indicate a larger quake to follow? It seems odd that there aren't more smaller ones, yes?

Reply to _Del_ and AlexanderM

Double 6's are not that unusual for Iran, but spread out like this is a bit different, kind of looks like offshore Chile earlier in the year, that ended up with a M8.
Maybe this is the new normal

update since that last list

A swarm of 53 quakes in the last week,
ESE of Lakeview, Oregon.
AKA Nevada!!!
But most of them were within the last day.
Quite a few at 0 depth or less than 1 km.
Deepest 4.5 km.

They are pretty much running south to north.
But ping ponging all over the place.
In the last hour, they've all been in the northern part of the swarm.
Zoom in to 3,000 ft, & they just barely fit in the screen top to bottom!

Can't tell anything from the satellite or street view.
Anyone familiar with that area???

Well, THAT didn't work!
Can't copy & paste the links for some reason tonight.
I guess you'll just have to take my word for it!!!

Here are the Ilam province events from the Iran International Institute of Earthquake Engineering and Seismology (IIEES) on a muzzyfied interactive map
goo.gl...
elapsed times are from the M6.0
IIEES are showing that second GFZ M6 as 5.8ML, it was 15hrs 36minutes 18 seconds after the m6, so thats
5.0
6.0
5.0
5.8
5.0
5.6
5.8

not so dramatic as a couple of 6's but still cause for concern, not the usual aftershock decline shown by an M6

standard muzzy timeline graph


NEW graphing feature I learned to do last weekend, which "verdurfies" the same data, its called "vertical error bars"


click graphs for larger images

speaking of Iceland, its been going NUTS in the last 48hrs! 1611 events mostly at Vatnajökull

Note
Intense earthquake swarm continues at Barðarbunga. Presently there are no signs of magma moving to the surface.

No worries Muzzy, we have it indeed covered in our volcano watch thread.

edit on 08u23123114 by muzzy because: having trouble with the ATS linking to outside images, to get around it, and get on with it, a change of proceedure as noted*


the linking issue may not be ATS fault. My Dropbox is nearly full, so I created a Dropbox2, its a bit different, doesn't have the same linking options as the original one.
I'm going to try GoogleDrive for some of the bigger images, GD has 15Gb of space versus Dropboxes 2GB.
Its a bit tricky creating the links for the images as a URL, so bear with me till I get the hang of it.
here is that Ilam province image on GD
Not sure if KML files work either.

yeah its all sweet on GDrive. A bit more clicking to get the same result as Dropbox, but it does work.
below is the interactive map as previous post, but with the KML hosted on GDrive (note the url of the KML file has a lot more letters and numbers in it)
Ilam interactive map V2.0

may make it harder to write the code for the NZ daily maps, will have to try it and see.

Ilam Province, 19 more... bringing the elapsed time up to 72 hours (3days)

this is a strange one alright, not a typical aftershock series one would expect from a M6.0

Did anyone see this???
Volcano in Japan could cause a tsunami if it erupts & collapses.
They are thinking of consulting with earthquake prediction experts...

Quote from JMA:
Officials in Japan are concerned an erupting volcanic island could collapse and create a tsunami.

The newly-formed island about 620 miles south of Tokyo is forming at a rate of about 7-million cubic feet of molten lava a day, and officials fear those slopes could fall into the ocean and cause a catastrophe.

"If lava continues to mount on the eastern area, part of the island's slopes could collapse and cause a tsunami," Fukashi Maeno, assistant professor of the Earthquake Research Institute at the University of Tokyo, told AFP.

The volcano is spewing enough lava each day to fill 80 Olympic-sized swimming pools, explained Maeno.

A collapse of about seven days worth of accumulated lava would send a three-foot-high wall of water towards neighboring island of Chichijima at a speed faster than a bullet train, according to the scientist.

It would wash over the island only 18 minutes after the collapse. About 2,000 people live on Chichijima, which is the largest island in an archipelago administered by the Tokyo metropolitan government.

"We studied the simulation this morning, and we are thinking of consulting with earthquake prediction experts... about the probability of this actually happening, and what kind of measures we would be able to take," an official with the Japan Meteorological Agency told AFP.
