The movement I referred to in my last post is still ongoing as I type. See this seismo example of what I have been gabbling on about. I can't provide readings from my daggy seismo - wish I could though smile
This movement has been going on for about 5 hours now.

Near Hawker/Arkaroola has just had what may be an M2+(??), according to this set of seismo's. The movement shown here seems isolated to this region, although Strathalbyn (SE of Adelaide) has had a jitter too, near the same time.

The Santa Barbara Channel, California is still moving intermittently with the odd M2+. The size of their tremors is fluctuating. This may take a while to settle and there may be a chance that they may feel another moderate quake yet.

Cheers for now, Duck.

Yet another post for today grin
Just found this news report and video from New Zealand. Very interesting -
"Silent quake gently rocks Wellington"

Melbourne's faint rattle has seemed to have subsided after plodding along for about 7+ hours this arvo. I will keep an eye on it for a while yet.

For now, Duck.

Ok...I had a gut feeling that Melbourne's (nearby) seismo wasn't going to stay settled for long...the faint movement has started up again - seismo here
This may be short lived or maybe an indicator of unfinished business in a fault.

An extra piece of info - so far Japan has had about 50 tremors in the last week.

When I give myself a day off, my obsessive tendencies with this interest take over (well just a bit).
I wish I could formally study this 'field', I find it fascinating.
Cheers, Duck.

Just briefly for the moment (got work to do smile )
I'm getting a feeling that the movements which registered for a considerable time in the Vic seismo may crop up again today. The 'irritation' may (feeling only) be coming from the east to west, or south to north. It maybe plate movements in the south aggravating faults or something else...will see...could be wrong...

Even though it's 3.30 am here...not many can sleep I'd imagine with the flooding rain and lightning we have going on atm.
So...I'll just mention that one of our seismo's is registering some faint rumbling (as it did for 7 hours the other day)...I thought it might (as I had mentioned). This seismo has been jittering for about an hour and a half now.

As I mentioned in a recent post;
Quote:
I also get a feeling that the Atlantic Ocean region may come up with some moderate movements, maybe near the Canary Islands/Funchal Islands; west of Spain/Portugal?; NE of Sth. America? and/or the Sth. Atlantic Ocean. A timeframe maybe from now till into early next week - not sure about of this of course - they are just feelings folks.


....this has occurred/occurring in the timeframe I felt it might and the general locations.

The plate 'arc' and general region near Fiji etc., are jittering intermittently again.

More soon, Duck.

Meant to add this info to my last post;

Sydney seismo

Edward Pigot Seismic Observatory (EPSO), Coonabarabran, NSW, Australia

Other world seismograph readings - the above Australian seismo info are linked to this site.

Major earthquake occurred at 1.43pm CST (3.43am GMT / 3.43pm AEST) in Central Taiwan estimated to be 6.2

Australian news is reporting this as 6.3

Buildings in Taipei were shaking, and this was felt in Hong Kong more than 700km away.

We did not feel this earthquake in Shanghai

Hi Steven. The Australian (News) has put up, an hour ago, a report on this earthquake and its' impact on the community there. One person lost their life and many others were injured -
"Deadly 6.3-magnitude earthquake rocks Taiwan's capital Taipei "

Leon Mow's seismo has been showing some definite jitters today. At one point it played up and seemed to be recalibrated then continued on with some movements. I definitely noticed some very mild moments of small wobbles in the (water) surface of a cup of water I had on a solid table, a few times today.
Just to note - if I see side-to-side wobble in the water surface - I interpret this as being horizontal (e.g. east/west movement or SE to NW, or south to north - and so on) movement.
If I see a ripple effect - I interpret this as a vibration and/or vertical movement. The vibration may sometimes be from a distant quake too.
The wobble side-to-side can also sometimes be from plate movements at a distance - i.e. the land is moved sideways for example.

I haven't had much time to focus on EQ activity up until late this arvo, as we have had both of my boy's birthday celebrations all weekend. My 'babies' are growing up cry

Anyway, the western edges of the ROF ( including the Fiji/Santa Cruz Islands regions etc.) has/have been very active today. Where Taiwan is positioned on the plates meeting points - this point was 'jumping out' at me yesterday as being a potential region for a larger EQ.

I feel too that the British Isles is going to move again (Ireland, England, Wales and maybe Scotland) - I feel there is still some energy there to release on a couple more occasions from now...

.....just finally checked the Global EQ Map and lo and behold, Ireland has just had an M4....

More soon, Duck

Interesting... SW of Kojonup, Great Southern Region, WA., has had 2 tremors (M2.7 [10kms deep] and M2.9 [0kms deep] respectively and 15 minutes apart, with the slightly larger one being the second one.
See Geoscience record of these tremors here.
These tremors are close to the coast, with the Indian Ocean to the west and the Great Australian Bight to the south. There are plate 'trenches'/deviations pointing towards this region....

Also Mungindi, NSW has come up with an M3.1 (5kms deep) 7 hours ago. Info for this tremor can be found on the link to Geoscience above.

Also, S of Blinman, SA. has come up with an M2.5 (10kms deep)

Just letting you know, if you are interested smile , that my internet will be offline for a couple of days (changing over to new server)...soooooo, I will be my best friends' bestest friend again. I may only be jotting a couple of posts here and there as I get a chance or may have to send pigeons out with messages.
Cheers for the moment, dark ages Duck grin

Just a quick note on OZ.
Every state/territory in Oz has come up with a tremor in the last week, particularly in regions near the coastlines.
Qld, as I suspected, came up with another tremor (M3'ish), as has Victoria SE.
WA continues to experience tremors, with the odd one gravitating towards the coast too.
SA is a place which experiences seemingly regular movements atm.
I tend to feel that our various fault lines near our coastlines, generally speaking, are being mildly irritated by distant plate movements still (and possibly a couple of other things).
Should be back to more posts with better info soon.... smile

Was a 5.7 in Central Australia late last night, 315km south west of Alice Springs. Very similar and close to another one back in March 2012. Should've been about 10,000 people out in the desert for the finke desert race that would've felt it.

Hi mysteriousbrad and other WZ'ers.
(still on friends' computer atm).
This was a good old shake for the NT, and radiating through neighboring states. It even jiggled seismo's all over Oz.
I had a gut feeling that we (Oz) was going to enter an active period. There may be the odd aftershock(s) after the main NT one.
SA and Vic may come up with some more tremors, as will WA and maybe NSW/Canberra and on the odd chance QLD.
Australia is not immune from larger quakes, through intra-plate activity. Every so often a larger quake erupts, reminding us that though we are generally sitting upon a large tectonic plate, our great land is still capable of movement in sensitive/fragile places.
Geoscience Australia - large EQ history of Oz till NT today
More as I get a chance,
Cheers, Duck.

P.s. include Melbourne's M5.3 in the above Geo' list. Geo's list only goes to 2010?

Thank goodness I now have a decent internet/phone server and new shiny 'accessories' to go with it. I have been keeping up, sort of, with the EQ activity on my soon-to-be-ditched mobile phone, and on the odd visit to my bestest friend to hog her computer in brief moments.
Anyway, it has been interesting to observe (and feel) the movements in Oz atm and recently. There has been a bit of a strange 'feeling' in the air lately. Some of the wildlife (and domestic) have had moments of acting a little strangely (including birds in the middle of the night). Also some deep and faint 'thunder-down-under' [sounds, not what you may be thinking/relating to the water closet eek ] and the old 'water-in-the-cup' movements and slight wobbles.

Anyway, will add more very soon wink Duck.

Woken by two loud bangs at 6.15 this morning! M5.2 just off Port Vila, Vanuatu. Could hear it coming like a jet taking off! Forty five minutes later the water in the pool is still swinging from side to side! Totally different from the last earthquake which lasted longer and was silent. I did not realise that each earthquake can have different characteristics. Not sure why this is?
