The lack of larger (mag 4 range) aftershocks is worrying, But I see one rolling in on GEE now.
Waiting for USGS...

Nice map work, as usual, Muzzy. Thanks.
Hey Muzzy, would this map work as a base for your Iceland projects? I like it because it lists all of the place names used as reference by the IMO in their quake tables


Mag 3.9 Largest aftershock to date, I believe.

I was wondering about the aftershocks as well.
If you look almost anywhere else on the USGS global map at the aftershocks to the bigger ones,
most have aftershocks that are about a point lower and then smaller and smaller..

I have not seen any big aftershocks.

Could this be because this was centered between two fault lines and not on a known active fault line?
(seems to me someone said it was an ancient fault line, but I could be mistaken)

Here is a good blog post from Scientific American, that reports on the findings of geology students from UC Davis.

They report that the Brown's Valley section of the West Napa fault was responsible, and that:

The rupture zone they found is right about half a kilometer (.3 mi) wide, 16 km (10 mi) long, and had a maximum slip of 25 centimeters (9 inches).


So, you're correct in thinking that this was a fault zone, and it very well could be why we haven't seen any moderate sized aftershocks.


The handful of aftershocks at the northern end of the West Napa fault (just S of Yountville on the image below), may be signalling more movement is possible still further north of the mainshock. This is just my amateur opinion.

Just checked and all of the USGS Heliplots are unavailable.
ANSS Backbone Heliplots
GSN Heliplots
Does anyone know why this happens?

Hmm, that's strange that it is prompting you. The map is interactive, so I don't believe there is a .pdf available. Bummer.



a reply to: whatnext21
I'm not sure what is going on, but off and on today, the US network stations and the TA stations have gone kaput in GEE, too. Someone must be doing some meddling behind the scenes

@Olivine: Add Cali 6 and NW Tremor and what do you get?? W8 - love it (see below) (Oh I went widescreen for the first time as well having resisted for years)


Puterman, I've no clue what we will get, but the tremor is still going strong.
The PNSN graphs seem to have a glitch at the moment, the only graphics that show are the density maps. This image shows the past 18 days of activity.

source
A full 36.9 hours with 635 epicenters just for yesterday.

Looking at the spectrograms for today, the deep tremors are still popping away. (link is for northern California, all other ETS regions are linked in the drop-down)


I'm glad to read that you love Win8. This weekend I will be purchasing a new compy--my significant other has graciously let me borrow his for the past few days because he noticed I couldn't keep my eyes off the Napa/Iceland happenings. Sweetheart, that man, for understanding my addiction.

This seems unusual, not often I see quakes in this part of the world and shallow too... What do our resident quake experts make of this?

muzzys rule
whenever the TTNT for the 24 hour period falls below 10, there is a M5 within 6 days

so hows it stacking up for August 2014?

1st Aug=9TTNT, 4th Aug M5, within 3 days
5th Aug =6TTNT, 6th Aug M5, within1 day
10th Aug =10TTNT, 14th Aug M5, within 4days
15th Aug =7TTNT, nothing
20th Aug =6TTNT, 25th Aug M5, within 5days
28th Aug=7TTNT, 29th Aug M5, within1 day

so 1/6 or 83.3% of the time it works out

show me any other method of prediction with 83% accuracy?

none!
only applies for NZ though
most of the 5's are north of the main islands, in the Kermadec's or between, seems to be the only area of action this period

go with this link as it will update when I renew it
Aug 2014 energy and numbers counts

Mother Earth is so active at the moment... I'm literally on pins when I open USGS and RSOE in the mornings.

Now it's up to 275 quakes of all magnitudes,
in the last 24 hours, in Ester, Alaska!

What's going on up there?
Any volcanoes in the area???

a reply to: wasobservingquietly

Interesting that this cluster of quakes in Alaska seems just a bit southeast of some of the most previous quake swarms in central AK from a few months ago. It seems like they are creeping across the state out towards the kenai peninsula.

Just some of my own random thoughts based on a path I think I might be seeing.

Currently watching ABC Live Quake Cam and have noticed the needle vibrating more than it usually does wondering if this has happened before or is it just malfunctioning.

Just looked up some info.
Closest volcano is Buzzards Creek, 64.061*N -148.432*W.
Coordinates of Ester's quakes, 65.155*N -148.983*W.
Even more interesting...the latitude of all the activity in Iceland right now:
64.723*N !!!

Hmmm...
