Cheers and thanks tsunami [pm'd you smile ]

Hi all. Yes I have been slack in posting here for a while [intermittent posts]. But I have seen the activity [EQ's] and observed some patterns in EQ behaviours. The biggy today was not a surprise considering the flurry of activity to the north, NE and east of our mainland - activity on other countries nearby.

I feel Oz may still be feeling a bit of pressure in relation to the quakes mentioned above. I am wondering if a tremor/quake may come up south of our continent; into or south of NZ or around Tassie somewhere????

For now, Duck.

Hi folks.

Just another quicky post. I am getting a gut feeling [could be super wrong of course] that a moderate quake/s could come up somewhere around Vanuatu or Fiji [could be deep as usual] or New Caledonia or PNG...???

There has been the M7+ in the Kermadec region [with follow on quakes] and this may be a sign that the energy is so 'driven' around that general region, that a 'sister' M7 may come up soon somewhere else...???

For now, Duck.

Hi tsunami and all.

The Kermadec region is certainly rocking along currently. There seems to a real snag there and a concerted energy push. Will be interesting to see if another decent quake comes up in that region at some point.

The places I mentioned in my last post - Fiji [deep quake], New Caledonia etc., all came up with a moderate quake - as did PNG/Indo. I reckon when action like the that in the Kermadecs keeps throttling on like it has, you need to be on the look out for resulting activity [referred and accompanying] to start showing up in the Pacific Island regions and PNG nearby.
The activity for NZ has maintained to the northern part of NZ for the time being. But I am still feeling that a response [tremor] may eventually show up in the regions south of the South island - on the South Island or near Cooks Strait...???

Australia has and is bopping along very nicely with tremors. There is rather a flurry of activity on our continent, and I feel that this is related to what is causing the Kermadecs and surrounds quakes. I also feel that some of the energy causing all the activity is coming up from near the Antarctic region, below Australia and New Zealand, as well as our plate being a nuisance on the east and NE side.

I feel that energy is driving up the San Andreas [northerly direction] and into the sea of the coast of Oregon and maybe eventually into the Cascades region - west of Canada. I'm not thinking disaster level energy, but an M5'ish may pop up in the Cascadia region at some point.

I have a bit of a feeling that Hawaii may come up with an M4 soon.

In the meantime, there will be other tremors and quakes coming up in other regions on the planet, but my main focus/interest is in Australia, the Pacific Island region, Hawaii, the west coast of America's and Japan.

I am gradually getting my EQ mojo back after many distractions over the last 12 months, so one day I may excel myself and cover many more regions smile

Cheers for now, Duck.

Well how's that for timing. Cascadia region [west of Oregon] came up with an M5 and M5+'s as I was typing my last post. West of U.S. and not Canada as I thought may currently.

For now, Duck.

Massive 7.5 in the Banda Sea just now, 600km north of Darwin. No tsunamis threat as 221km deep but something is going on there - look at the cluster of quakes over Iran Jaya in the last 24hrs.

Yep, a good rattle alright.
Our continent is feeling the movement from this one. Put a glass of water on a stable surface and you can see the movement.
I feel this large movement is related to the energy that caused the other large quake/s in the Kermadecs.
Victorian seismo

For now, Duck.

Interesting what you say about a glass of water on the bench. Im watching the pool and the water is moving back and forth like it does in 20kt winds. Yet there is next to no wind.

Yep tsunami.

The ground of Oz was moving subtly in some places, and where you are more in the northern parts of Oz you would possibly have seen these movements more.

Hundreds of reports [800+ in Darwin and surrounds alone] were made to Geoscience Australia by people feeling that quake. Even some folks in the southern ends of Oz.

The old glass of water on an extremely stable surface, away from environmental interference, is a cheap little seismo in itself wink

Cheers, Duck.

Following on from this massive quake, a volcano erupted that has been dead for 95 years!

Quote:
The eruption of the Raikoke volcano located in the Kuril Islands (Russian archipelago NW Pacific).

The Volcano erupted on June 23, it was 95 years asleep, its last recorded eruption was in 1924.

Will it be that more volcanoes are waking up?

Solar minimums & uptick and volcanoes with silica rich magma. Interestingly, Raikoke last exploded during the minimum phase of cycle 15 in 1924 and before that at the end of the Maunder Minimum in 1765 and 1778. Some researchers posit gamma rays ( which increase during minimums due to magnetic field weakening). https://electroverse.net/sudden-high-lev...-13-1-km-a-s-l/

Well folks and 'what the...', I for one am very disappointed/saddened that the forums are closing for good soon.

Strangely [or maybe not] this thread and the other forums have been my "go to" for varying types of info on weather and other important and interesting conversations about such things that affect our country and neighbours. It is a little like having a family of sorts, who you pop in on regularly or occasionally to have a chat with or share info.

The forums are invaluable to so many people. The EQ thread in this General Science section has no less than 3.27 million views and climbing every week. All the other threads have a great following too.

I am left with a feeling of wanting to suggest to WZ that the forums stay open for all who rely on the information, banter, chat etc., and value having a place [forum] where they can also connect with others through like-minded interests.

I will miss all the good folks here and sharing my interest in earthquake and volcanic activity, and other subjects, and learning from others.

One question............why are the forums closing??? [shaking head].

What are you talking about? Not the Weatherzone forums I hope. Can't see any reference here, so hopefully not.

Yep cold@28. On top of the forums list there is a post from admin about the shutting down of the forums. frown

Phew, at least it's not the whole weatherzone forum.
Pity about the General Science forum though. This is the only thread in that section I follow. Where will people go instead?
