I haven't been doing much on the Global scene except keeping the big ones in Japan, NZ and Italy up to date.
The only graph I was keeping going was the Solar Flux graph
dl.dropboxusercontent.com...
which has the M5+'S on it
but even that is currently 2 months out of date.
I will update that today.

Am hesitant to publish too much stuff now because of the threat of Dropbox ceasing the access to the Public files, still trying to figure out how to get around that before Sept 2017.
99% of the data I have is stored in folders inside the Public folder.

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.



Could that seismic activity possibly trigger more activity in that volcano?? It's really creepy because after we talked on your volcano thread, I told my brother "watch...there's going to be an earthquake in Chile next." And what was the first thing I saw when I logged on? A thread by another member about that 7.7 mag. Jesus.

Not sure, but in checking the distance between the epicenter and Maule, I'd say probably not, but maybe. It's pretty darn far. Now a 9+ at that distance might. But they've had enough for Christmas with a 7.6, don't ya think?

Expected some local Tsunami based on the coastal layout there at
They may have got off lightly, 0.5m the highest (Yaldad), although that doesn't indicate how far inland it may have gone.
here is the list.

Tsunami animation by GDACS
It is an interesting animation, watching the red markings
The wave split in two west and east, the east one went inside Corcovado Gulf and bounced around there as might be expected, the west one went out to the Pacific then went mainly north and curled around Chiloe Island and eventually bounced back south to the Archipielago of the Guaitecas after some time.
I got the local geography off wikimapia. Quite a hand resource, Google Maps and Google Earth are pretty useless.

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
ds.iris.edu...


You know about the C network, right? C.GO07 is literally 30 km from the epicenter of this quake, right on Chiloe Island itself. C network runs right down the Chile coast, but the lower southern stations after C.GO06 haven't been working for quite a while. A 7.6 30 km from a station would likely clip it and kill it anyway. But even GT.PLCA is closer than IU.TRQA.

Yes, I do think. It would be wonderful if the earth would take the rest of the year off. If it's that far away from the volcano, then I won't worry so much. I just hope everyone there is OK.

Yeah I seen those stations on the Chile University site, but couldn't see where you view the seismos

That GT.PLCA wasn't on the IRIS station list for this quake, not sure why. Yes it is closer.

The Chile Uni site is hard work, the 48hr map has lost the 7.6 already, the recent quakes list too, so you have to click on the

Conoce el registro sísmico más reciente y explora los eventos de un día o mes específico. Visitar
on the left hand side then switch the date back to the 24th to see the list.
Then because the web site is built using Frames, you can't copy an paste individual event page addresses because the web address for them is still the same as the eventos de un día page, all you can do is right click on the lower part and select "view this frame" then "open in another tab or window" and get the address from there.
Like I say hard work, I'm not even going to try on my cell phone.
Still it is a University, where common sense seldom prevails.

There are other volcanos near by on the mainland last eruption of any one of them decades ago. However M7's do sometimes precede new eruptions.
* I'm sure there was an eruption down there just a few years ago, I remember the aeroplanes being diverted around the ash clouds that spread right around to New Zealand.

Should have read 26th.....
It's hard to keep track of what day it is being 12 hrs ahead of UTC, then there's the Chile local time.....

All I know for sure is that the Sun is shining right now here and that is about time, what a dull Christmas it has been weather wise up until mid day today.

There are certain advantages to running a real time data rig when it comes to viewing quakes. It is a different approach than what you are trying to do with Wilbur3, in that you use all available network data, rather than rely solely on one or two networks. Not all networks provide webicorder plots of their data- and some won't let you have their data at all- unless you know someone, or two or three.

Yeah IRIS needs more funding for more stations,
the Solomon Islands for example, needs a couple more
you would think that an area that maybe has the highest number of big quakes on the planet would be peppered with seismos, but there is just the one at Honiara
there are probably less than100 aftershocks posted from the 7.9 of 08/12 but in reality there have been likely over 10,000 of them.

Science has its own priorities. And those usually include funding based upon the number of total people affected in different areas. Usually, but not always, particularly when it comes to the oil and mineral industries. If there's money to be made, it's funny how funding can appear quite fast.

While I'm here,
that to UoChile opens as a mobile link on a mobile (funny that!!??) which I mentioned is useless to get the full days data on.
So I'm posting the other link to the to the "select day" page, see what that brings up on the mobile.
I like to have a quick look at what is happening when I am taking a break from the TV for a smoke outside
www.sismologia.cl...

I've got 43 aftershocks so far
2 x 5.2

graph on that link has been updated today
and the ikimap for 2016 which is the only way I can post interactive Global maps now.
Don't forget that you have to select the type of map you want
Note Bing is now defunct even on this display
what on earth are they up to at Microsoft?
Instead of competing against each other to provide the better service, they have both given up completely providing a service.
We are left with a Google hack and Open Street Map, which is OK I guess

You do realise that QVSData has functions built in to read the Chilean data and convert it to CSV files?


Click the image to enlarge

 

Just checked it and the Chile data is working OK.

PSS> The data gets dumped in

with a filename like Chile_20161127-20161227.csv depending on the dates you have chosen.

The format is

I suppose I ought to also mention that, if you are collecting EMSC, data that EMSC publishes Chilean data down to Mag 3 so you can either export that from QVSData or get it from EMSC direct.

No what we need is a (crowdfunded?) network of seismo stations covering the world that is not funded by or beholden to governments, universities, scientific institutes, industry or any other organisations with an agenda and where ALL data is freely available to EVERYONE regardless of whether they are scientists, citizen scientists or just plain citizens.

If every billionaire in the world - all 1694 of them - donated $2,000,000 = Max 0.2% (and for the bulk of them a considerably smaller percentage) that would give a fund of $3,388,000,000 to set up and run such a network. If one aimed for 2000 instruments that would allow $1,694,000 per instrument. I am pretty sure you could install them for that!

PS. If you look at the losses and gains just to to stock prices $2M is complete peanuts to these people.

You have exceeded the maximum window of 4 hours allowed to edit your post.

It's only been 2 hours, WTFudge?

Anyway downloaded those GUC events on Datapro, works good, got all the events down to 2.7

not sure if its Excel that can't recognise the foriegn letters
eg
66 km al O de Quellón
100 km al SE de Ollagüe

The way they write the location on GUC there is no way to seperate the locations by region (like NIED and NZ).
This is the same problem with USGS, and why I don't follow them any more.
I suppose I could run the file through the F_E Earthquake location tool, that would probably return South, Central or North Chile.
Probably just easier to sort by latitude on the file itself in this case

Good idea.
It would probably take the death by earthquake of one of their own family to set the wheels in motion.
