Often, I tell myself to shut up. Being that it is relatively quiet, I should be dusting and cleaning. But it's hot.

I feel I have to write because I see it again. "See What?", you say. I see dead people. No. No, I mean I see absence. A tiny earthquake popped up in Idaho. "So What?", you say. Right. It's not important at all. And it's small.

And that's my point. It's really quiet in Nevada. All of the swarm area have dropped off suddenly and all at the same time. Again, I have to call that a connection. Even the Hawthorne swarm, which is still going, is showing only the tiniest earthquakes.

The only real stand out in the area is Utah had a bit of a spike. Not much though. I'm not sure if this means the swarms may taper away to a trickle. Or, maybe this is the calm before the storm. Whichever, I like watching because it will most likely surprise me regardless of where I put my money if I had to bet.

Oh, Mexico. The list broken. And maybe they changed up reporting. I'm so lazy. I really should investigate.

Oh, volcanoes are rumbling a bit though. I've seen lots of videos and reports lately. Just noting. Because it's really hard to get a grip on whether there's a worldwide spike because it's really hard to monitor them. Earthquakes are easier to monitor. They usually show up somewhere on a seismograph. Volcanoes can hide. Sometimes the only way anyone knows there was an eruption is from satellite stuff.

Well when he said 4.7 and northpole i was just assuming he meant those two quakes. Because i have USGS tab set on 2.5 worldwide past 7days and those were the only two showing up there. Than went to search the archives. It lets you draw a rectangle on the map which i did in that area. Set Mag to 2.5 - 8 and time from 1800 to present. Clicked search and took me to that map (sometimes it takes awhile to load depending on area and how far back you choose).

Please can you tell me what program you use?
I would like to do that to.

I use the search engine from USGS. Give you the option to search in mag range dates and allow you to select only a certain area. Just like i mentioned before sometimes take a bit to load the area if its trying to load many eq.

Nice work

but what you need is a timeline graph as well;
like this
I did something different than usual this time. Usually the labels show the magnitude, but what I wanted to know on this graph was "how long between earthquakes?" The magnitudes are already on the x axis anyway so ............

the overall average is 2 years, but as you can see there were some really big gaps. Nothing since 2014.

Not sure that it would be mining related, I can't see anything on Satelitte view, just lots of Billabongs, and besides even if they blew up the side of a mountain to get at the gold they wouldn't need 951.5 tons of TNT to do it, that's just the energy released by the 5.2 alone

Somethings wrong with Aussie and it's not just the rising unemployment

Purely on a personal level I would prefer that you do not link to the BS from Dutchsinse, who has a proven record of inability to get things right, has no apparent experience, and has been castigated by USGS for his nonsense.

One has to wonder how any person using a name like that (research it your selves if you are not aware) can be taken seriously. Much of what he says seems to be as a result of a surfeit of his namesake.

Purely my opinion of course but if this sort of thing creeps into the thread then it will deteriorate from a reasonably serious study of worldwide earthquakes to a doom porn rag.

Upgraded now to a 6.0 on USGS

M6.0 - Northern Territory, Australia

posted on May, 29 2016 @ 01:48 PM
I have been slowly upgrading and updating the 6.5+ Blog, working back from the 1860's and today adding in the Fiji and South Sandwich events of 28/5/2016 and thought I better upgrade the 8+ page as that is the most visited page
Lucky I checked on IRIS Wilber as the
8.0Mw, 2014/6/23 20:53:10, Rat Islands, Aleutian Islands
has been downgraded to 7.9Mw.
I hadn't reviewed this file for a while so needed to add in
8.3, 2015/9/16 22:54:32, Near Coast of Central Chile
so one out/one in
Only one more M8+ is allowed in the future !
as Bing Maps won't show more than 200

further to: muzzy

aaaaarggghhh !! I got to 2014 and thought, oh yeah, where's the Me_bb and Me_hf energy magnitudes?
I hadn't done them prior to 2015. doh
So i went into IRIS EQ Eenergy Search and downloaded the Me data for 2014. It also shows the Mw too.
Dang the Rat Island quake is back at 8.0Mw!!! WTF?
I dunno, i give up, so I put it back into the M8+ file,'
so that is full now, 200 events. Any more 8's and I'll have to start another map.

Now about 2014, and I think this is going to require a complete rebuild of a huge part the data I have gathered over the last few years since I started putting in what was in the Centennial List, at least for recent years anyway.
I kind of expected some of the magnitudes to be revised, as often it takes them about year to fully analyze each event, but I didn't expect this.
7 completely new events, that I hadn't even listed, perhaps they were just under 6.5, or maybe I just missed them.
6 events went up a few decimal points in the 6.5-7.0 category, and one went down a M0.1
but 5 snuck over the 7.0 mark,
that is, back when they happened, and probably for the next 6 months they were called ~M7, which I suppose we all know here seems to be par for the course when it comes to USGS/NEIC etc, ie always just under the threshold.
I have wondered for a long time if this is so as to not cause public panic, or to fit into some kind of research study?
People forget pretty quickly, so after a year or so they sneak the real magnitude in and no one really notices, except us compulsive quake watchers.
So energy release wise, things could actually be worse than they seemed.
I don't know if I'll ever get this project finished, just when I'm getting on top of it, and working back into the really historic stuff, something like this crops up and I have to start all over again.

Thanks for the medals

Just keeping you ATS readers up to date,in case you happened to go to the 6.5+ pages and wondered what the heck was going on.

I just found a problem with another page I have been running for about 197 days, Kyushu 7.1 and aftershocks
I started breaking the aftershocks into 197 bunches, so they would fit on Bing Maps (remember the 200 limit? well take the mainshock and the next biggest 5.9 as reference points, that only leaves 197 lines)
but I made a mistake in the addresses of each file in the html code on the page after the first 2. I called the files blahblahblah Kyushublah197, when they should have been blahblahblah Kyushublah200 as per what the name of the KMZ file was. So the damn map wouldn't open on Bing.
Just an editing issue, I have fixed it now and they open.
I never thought to check (proof read) the actual end result on the published page.
Obviously not many people are using the Bing maps or someone would have said something (you can comment on the page itself)

Re the 6.5+ pages, I did 2013 yesterday, 5 "new" events, 4 of them were upgrades from 6.4. None of the existing ones where I had the Mw reading changed, so it looks like after 2 years there are few review changes by USGS/NEIC/IRIS

2016-05-30 10:55:27, 5.2, 30.12°S, 178.07°W, 110, confirmed, Kermadec Islands

then checked Geonet
same quakes, based on the time
When, Lat, Lon, Mag, Depth, Where, Status
30/05/2016 07:14:13, -30.3402, 6.08M, 32, Kermadec Islands, confirmed
30/05/2016 10:55:16, -30.3295, 5.60M, 29.02, Kermadec Islands, confirmed

what a difference putting a w after the M makes (the conversion from NZ's ML to Gfz's Mw)
