Japan and New Zealand have a lot in common geologically, and there is a lot of co-operation on earthquake research.
I came across this in my quest for GPS data. its created from data from the ALOS-2 (Advanced Land Observing Satellite 2) launched by Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency on May 24, 2014.
www.gsi.go.jp...
Some cool maps of the Hope Fault 7.8 quake deformation
here is one example




They did a page for Norcia as well.
www.gsi.go.jp...

and Chile, Nepal and some more www.gsi.go.jp...

I have downloaded those and archived the Hope Fault ones to the Hope Fault page

Are you sure about that Pocket?
I just clicked on the link I posted here last night and it is still the same i.e. it hasn't rolled on to today.
link from page 83
Can anyone else see that, or I wonder if it is just me and the fact I'm logged in to it.

Just had another look, na it rolls over.
How useless is that then.

I see that one was near Bougainville in the north
I wonder if this is going to be a repeat of the ping-pong match of 11/4 and 21/4/2014?, when the quakes were back and forth between Bougainville and San Cristobal, discussion on ATS starts here with a 7.3



Well it turns out it was, same sort of back and forth, slightly different areas in each time period, but definitely a pin-pong match

Just 83 aftershocks off reaching the 10,000 mark for the Marlborough-Cook 7.8 of 13/11/2016
there was a 4.7 over in Marlborough this morning, didn't feel it here .
Public ID 2016p969664
Intensity strong
Universal Time December 24 2016, 18:37:22
NZ Daylight Time Sun, Dec 25 2016, 7:37:22 am
Depth 14 km
Magnitude 4.7
Location 15 km east of Seddon
Latitude, Longitude -41.67, 174.25
www.geonet.org.nz...

the aftershocks are thinning out a little, but show no sign of reducing in magnitude, in fact there has been a slight increase in the last few days in the size of the biggest ones.

Stuck indoors for the holidays and time on your hands?
Some light reading for you
I found this by accident when researching the Kaikoura 7.8
Learning from Earthquakes Reconnaissance Archive by EERI

EERI sends out multidisciplinary teams of researchers (e.g., earth scientists, engineers, social scientists) after earthquakes to investigate and learn from the damaging effects observed in the field. These reconnaissance teams return with a wealth of knowledge that is documented in the LFE Reconnaissance Archive. The archive is a searchable/sortable table that identifies resources for over 290 earthquakes. Clicking on an earthquake will take you to its event page where you can find photos, reports, and links.


www.eeri.org...

I have saved a couple off the Kaikoura page and added them to my Hope Fault page, and will do the same for Accumoli (Norcia) and the others if they are worthwhile.

Speaking of Kaikoura, we are having a Kaikoura Christmas Dinner later,
Crayfish and bread and butter

It has been a bit of a tradition at our place for the last 5 years, being "Summer " here at Christmas turkey just doesn't fit with the climate.

Chile just got hit with a 7.7, in the south.

earthquake.usgs.gov...

TSUNAMI THREAT FORECAST
-----------------------

* HAZARDOUS TSUNAMI WAVES FROM THIS EARTHQUAKE ARE POSSIBLE
WITHIN 1000 KM OF THE EPICENTER ALONG THE COASTS OF

CHILE.

Seems awful odd- this 7.7 happened right after a 5.4 up further north. That might not be so good. Yes, possible foreshocks.

Likewise, thanks. Hoping that tsunami isn't too bad down there. Not a great Christmas day present for them.

Hey TA- Wasn't the big EQ/Tsunami back in Indonesia (2004) right on/around Christmas day or the day after? Is there something around the winter solstice that possibly triggers large EQs around these dates?

a reply to: jhn7537

You know, funny you mention that. I was literally thinking just yesterday about Christmas coming up, and remembering 2004. But I was wondering if another one would happen there, not in Chile. I am still concerned about this. I have seen not a single aftershock yet, and there should be with something this big. I mean usually there is.

I recall convserations around some quakes not producing the standard after shock sequence, and I think those convserations centered around Chile quakes. Could this be what we are seeing?

Prayers out to anyone who may be affected by this.

a reply to: jadedANDcynical

Yeah, maybe it was. I wouldn't call it rare, but it's unusual for a quake this big. Usually when I see this in Chile, the fault stays agitated, with a zillion rapid fire aftershocks coming in one after the other. This time it was just "slip" and then nothing. the Fault ain't budging as far as I can see. But C.GO07, the station closest is down, so I am still some 800+ km out. There may be aftershocks going on. I just cannot confirm at that distance, unless a bigger like 5+ one happens.

USGS just backed off to 7.6 mag.

lol, I was just about to do that muzzster, to see if they had anything on aftershocks. And it appears there have been. I can't see 'em, C.GO06 is the closest i am getting at the moment. But thanks, I feel a bit more relieved.

IU. TRQA: Tornquist, Argentina is the nearest IRIS station but its not showing much


II.EFI: Mount Kent, East Falkland Island is further away but shows more
ds.iris.edu...

both are too far away to show the smaller aftershocks

LVC (Limon Verde, Chile) seems worth a watch, at least its showing the 5.2 at 2016-12-25 14:01:34 UTC further north

Muzzy, over four months ago, it may have been longer, I mentioned that is was dull. So, it seems this year has had a slow beginning, followed by last xt half with one big one after another. Of course, I was at the time when it was dull- making the argument that they come in clusters. Well, your yearly graph of big ones must bear this out and you must be getting ready to do the final tallies for the year.

I'm interested in seeing the trend.

The North Atlantic has stopped be earthy with the seasons. I'm going to blame the weather patterns. The entire north is goofed up and weather patterns are wacky. Santa was outside in above freezing temps at the North Pole without a shirt trying to get some colour on his man boobs. The reindeer in the heat look a little mangy.


Oh my god. I remember Banda Aceh. I couldn't sleep that night. I was in a horrible mood. That how bad it was. I remember the night. I was listening to the radio in the dark and the live BBC. They reported almost immediately. Other stations were slow because of the holiday. Right away I could tell it was going to be bad. Every hour the totals and descriptions just coming and coming. My imagination was running wild in the dark-and I was already sleepless and restless so my thoughts were nightmarish. Even my worst imagining paled when I finally saw the pictures.
