Re: Kuril Islands is swarming with quakes, wtf?
The Kuril Islands have been having quakes for quite some time now. Finally noticing...?

Seems there may be magma moving up there.. or perhaps a NEW island like happened near Tonga!!
Lessons learned today, are problems prevented tomorrow!

One should not worry about tomorrow when there is plenty to do today!!

The depth of most of those earthquakes is 10km. This means they are outer rise earthquakes near a trench. Large types of these earthquakes took place in Indonesia 2004 and now Kuril Islands. They disrupt the earthquake cycles.

Did the swarms in Indo happen before the big one, after or both??

Would be interesting to nail down pattern and get a better idea if the 8.2 was the beginning, or the end of something....

All at 10 km is a trademark of a manmade quake. Indonesian Tsunami data looked like this (until 2 days later changed).

From what I remember the swarm started after the big one. There were several earthquakes before the big one, a matter of weeks before it. I dont remember their depths and though I did save at the time the charts showing last 30 days activity, I lost them when I formatted my PC. verysad

But the big one caused the whole thing to go haywire and it lasted for another 2 months or so, during which another big one occured, a magnitude 8. Somewhere in January 2005. Then it gradually slowed down by the half of February.

It would be nice if someone saved those charts, I think it would be shocking to see the number of earthquakes there.

Re: Kuril Islands is swarming with quakes, wtf?
Did the swarms in Indo happen before the big one, after or both??

Would be interesting to nail down pattern and get a better idea if the 8.2 was the beginning, or the end of something....

For a little clarity, the Indonesian quake is a quite different fault line and fault type, one is a strike/slip and the Kuril area is a subduction fault, one of the reasons given for the constant depth readings is the subduction fault is in a horizontal plane. (do not rule out other possibilities)

This is the area of the fault from an aerial view
