The short answer is no there has been no new recorded vent activity, no spike in earthquakes there.
Any recorded earthquake events at Taupo can be viewed on the daily maps I make nzeq2016.blogspot.co.nz...

I'm new to this GPS stuff, but here is a reading from the GPS stations around Taupo caldera, the day of the 7.8 quake is marked for reference

TGHO Horomatangi Reef did show some uplift (about 20mm) on the 27th Nov NZST, there was a M1.87 quake not far to the south west right in the middle of the lake 2016-11-27 02:58:40;
and then a 40mm drop over 4 days 4th-7th Dec inclusive
there were some earthquakes over this period around the volcano
M1.25, 05/12/2016 09:23:48; middle of the lake
M1.23, 05/12/2016 09:25:41; middle of the lake
M2.17, 05/12/2016 01:57:44; near Kuaratau (nr TGRA station)
M2.3, 04/12/2016 23:39:09; near Waihaha (western bay)
M3.18, 05/12/2016 13:21:34; near Waihaha (western bay)
M1.72, 06/12/2016 03:43:57; near Taupo Airport
M0.93, 06/12/2016 15:06:56; Stump Bay (between TGRA and TGRI stations)

if you want to have a go yourself, here is the stations map with the code names
and this is the query I used to get that graph. Copy and paste the address into your browser, then you can change the station codes or the date as you wish. You can delete or add stations, but make sure all the dots and commas are there and no spaces otherwise it won't work.
I use the map in one tab and the query in another so I don't get mixed up (but still do)

Someone with the spare time could do a "isthisthingon" yellowstone blog type coverage for Taupo volcano, I don't believe there is anything out there specifically with the quakes and the GPS for the area, just the drums and quakes pages on Geonet.
I presume you have read this Geonet pageTaupo

Checking in with an alert on the RSOE, "Mt. St. Helena" had an EQ recently. It is strange as the USGS site does not have this recent Activity marked, and the RSOE only provides the time and place as of this posting. No magnitude.

From RSOE:
"A recent swarm of more than 120 earthquakes near Mount St. Helens -- all below a magnitude 0.5...."

"recent" swarm ????
how recent
you can view Mt St Helens earthquakes here
www.pnsn.org...

smallest is -1.6 (that is micro japanese size)
I don't see 120 though, I only see 6 in the last week

Note: I couldn't find the =/- buttons on the map, had to click on "Show 20 most recent" top right corner above the map to open the map with the buttons, then back to "last 30 days" and the =/- stayed on.

RSOE are know for being wrong a lot of the time, I ask why RSOE even bother mentioning it if they haven't got the evidence (wheres the link?)

I think its BS, maybe TrueAmerican can confirm from the seismos

Have a look here the only station with any activity is SEP at the caldera, no where near 120 earthquakes, even the ones on that are yesterday
volcanoes.usgs.gov...

edit on 1200000034734716 by muzzy because: (no reason given)

I followed the Observatory mentioned in the story to get that page.
There are no alerts being issued by the said "Cascades Volcano Observatory in Vancouver, as reported in the Columbian"
volcanoes.usgs.gov...

it is probably just a reminder memo put out by the CVO to ensure future funding keep rolling in, and RSOE fell for it as being an alert

Yeah agreed.
RSOE is alright for an overview of what is happening, but you need to check other sources as well (which you did by checking USGS).
There are a few on ATS who rely on RSOE, but I'm not one of them.

Just had another look this morning, at New Zealand, they have a few of the earthquakes, but there are over 150 per day happening right now mostly in Marlborough and Cook Strait, so they are only telling half the story.
The only other hazard showing is a volcanic warning for Lake Rotorua Volcano.
has the dates , but nothing about what it was. link
You would think if RSOE is trolling the media for info to post that they would bother to add the info about what the event was about.


It was a geyser near the lake shore.

I should have posted it on Volcano Watch

The reason for skepticism is this memo from Northern California Earthquake Data Center (NCEDC) on January 3rd, 2015
EGS Catalog Geysers Magnitude Errors

In reviewing Geysers data, the 4 events listed below had incorrect amplitudes from one station (DEB) that had a large amount of transient electronic noise. These amplitudes were previously included in the moment magnitude calculations for the events listed below, resulting in greatly exaggerated moment magnitude estimates. The corrected magnitude estimates, computed without the erroneous DEB amplitudes, are:

2016-12-14 16:46:18 UTC 38.792°N 122.842°W -0.6 km depth
earthquake.usgs.gov...
most of the other quakes on the list (on the CVO link above) don't have the minus sign ahead of the figure, but some do
I wonder what this negative reading means?

part of the answer may be this

Depth uncertainty -0.6 km ± 3.9

earthquake.usgs.gov...

which means the depth COULD be 3.3km?

I took a little ride with the google car along Geyser Rd. crazy geography. I bet the geo-thermal plant has something to do with seeing that they are right nearby. Oh, a little aside. Frackers claim they don't contaminate the groundwater. The EPA came out with it's last report before Trump. So, for all of you that have come out of a cave, Trump has won and is President Elect of the most powerful country in the world. Our current timeline has before and after Christ. I'm comparing mind you. But, now there is before and after Trump. So, we are nearing day one of B.T., on January 19 or whatever when they crown him. ah. What was doing here?
Yes, the EPA says frackers are fracking up the water. The EPA, is like those one The Green Mile, dead men walking.
You get anything thing from them again. America is fracked.

Well, I'm ready for to give my report to the aliens so I can leave this planet and go on my next assignment. ah......


I'm glad I knew Trump would win on Sept 11 when Hillary fell down.
I was never in denial.

In conclusion. Man made earthquakes in the United States of America will increase many fold.

I shouldn't do this but whatever. This morning I listened to Linda Ronstadt doing "Crazy". I'm going to post it and you have to listen. The poor lady can't sing anymore and she was soooooooo goooooood. I was too young to really understand back then, thank god for you tube. She was amazing LIVE> or did they have auto tune back then. I tease my kid and say she's autotuned.

So, America, you....

Crazy.

Or it could be 0.9 km± 0.4km (earthquake.usgs.gov...)
or 0.94km (ds.iris.edu...)
or 11.5km (earthquake.usgs.gov...-tensor?source=us&code=us_200080qv_mww)
or 5km (earthquake.usgs.gov...-tensor?source=nc&code=nc72737985_mt1)
or 1km (earthquake.usgs.gov...?source=at&code=at00oi6p0h)

geez what was it?
shallow anyway


I'm all for accuracy but 5 different depths is ridiculous
and LDEO will likely have 33km (if they list it at all)

I find it strange that when it comes to USA quakes IRIS doesn't give out much, like the Me_bb or Mw_hf energy figures for example
they still haven't calculated and released these for the 6.5 oof the coast 6.5 days ago
How can you compare apples with apples when they only sell bananas for the USA (ie compare quakes of the same size)

Ha! and today the energy data is released.
Well done IRIS

I'm a big fan of IRIS, a great source of information on larger size global earthquakes.

FWIW the EQ Energy for Mwb 6.5 OFF COAST OF NORTHERN CALIFORNIA was
Me_bb = 6.72
Mw_hf = 6.87
now I can enter those in the Excel file row for the quake and complete the map for 2016

Ok, fine. Then YOU will be the one responsible for responding to the next 5 million posts claiming seismicity when it is telemetry error.

Not as far as I am aware. It saves links to the web pages so if the page dies the link dies as well. If you are using Firefox get Scrapbook. That does save the complete page intact and it is preserved on your computer.

By the way an IMPORTANT announcement from Dropbox [an email] which will affect both you and me.


As a result, we’ll soon be ending support for the Public folder. Dropbox Basic users will be able to use the Public folder until March 15, 2017. After that date the files in your Public folder will become private, and links to these files will be deactivated. Your files will remain safe in Dropbox.


I believe this means that all your map icons, and mine in the programs, and the links for people to download my programs get zapped. It continues....


If you’d like to keep sharing files in your Public folder, you can create new shared links. Just make sure to send the new URLs to your collaborators.


That sounds to me like a physical impissibolity as far as your maps are concerned.

BTW they call this an 'improvement'.

 


Just been to pocket to prove to myself what I am saying was right. One of my pocket links was on a passworded site and pocket could not access it. I believe this proves that all they are doing is saving a link. It is actually little more than a bookmark manager across devices.
