EARTHQUAKES COMMON AT NODAL, TRIGGERING DISTANCES FROM SO. PERU

 

EARTHQUAKE SUMMARY FOR JANUARY 15, 2018

 

A series of unusual earthquakes occurred today at distances from the M 7.1 in Peru which suggest strong distant triggering. The prime distances for these unusual events were, as expected, at 144 and 103 degrees where seismic energy is concentrated at the surface following reflection and refraction off core and core-mantle boundaries. The triggered events included an M 4.7 in the Arctic circle at 103 degrees from Peru and an M 4.6 in northeastern China at 144 degrees from Peru. Other unusual events at 103 degrees from Honduras included an M 4.8 and M 4.6 in Greece. The strongest earthquake in the U.S. or Canada also was included in this suite of events being 107 degrees from Peru.

 

An earthquake of M 4.7 in the Arctic north of Svalbard went unfelt in that remote area today. This event occurred at 103 degrees from the M 7.1 quake in Southern Peru yesterday and was likely promoted from that source. The last earthquake within about 250 km of this epicenter with M>=4.7 occurred as an M 4.7 on August 19, 2017 but the last of larger magnitude was an M 5.5 on May 17, 2009. Forecast 113722 had expected an event in this region around January 19. An earthquake of M 4.0 in Iceland southwest of the Svalbard epicenter was at 90 degrees (node 4) from Peru. Forecast 113716 had expected this event within about 50 km of the event was likely around January 16.

A moderate earthquake of M 4.1 shook the area of Portugal today. NEIC reported it was felt with maximum intensity V in Portugal at Unhos and IV in Caceres, Merida and Badajoz, Spain and IV in Sintra in the region of Lisbna and Vale do Tejo, Portugal. Lesser shaking was reported from Portugal at Coimbra, Mafra, Alges, Loures, Lisbon, Odivelas, Sacavem, Moscavide, Povoa de Santa Iria, Beja, Coruche and Evora, Portugal. This earthquake which occurred within about 30 minutes of local solar noon was probably promoted by high tidal stress associated with the new moon of January 17 as previously noted in this summary:

 

 

"The new moon will arrive at 02:17 UT on January 17. Longitudes experiencing maximum tidal stress at this time are near 35W and 145E longitudes. These are similar  to those of the new moon of January 2 which arrived at 02:24 UT. The same areas are likely to experience maximum stress with the new moon. These were noted in previous issues as:

 

"The full moon will arrive on January 2, 2018 at 02:24 UT. This is a supermoon with the moon at its closest  point in its orbit. Tidal effects are likely to be about 30% larger than with a normal full moon. Longitudes experiencing maximum tidal stresses at this time center about 20 degrees around 37W and 143E and include the mid-Atlantic and the east Pacific rim including New Guinea north to Honshu, Japan. These are most likely to see a strong tidally triggered earthquake in the next six days but tidal triggering is possible in many areas and is not limited to these longitudes." (January 2, 2018)" (January 13-14, 2018)

 

The longitude of this event in Portugal is the same as that of the Arctic  Ocean event earlier. The last earthquake in Portugal within about 200 km  of this epicenter with M>=4.6 occurred on October 2, 2008 about 200 km southeast of today's epicenter. This was the only such event in the area in the past 25 years. Forecast  113629 had expected this event was likely within about 25 km of this epicenter around January 17.

A pair of moderate events of M 4.3 and M 4.4 were also widely felt in central and southern Greece today.  NEIC reported this earthquake of M 4.3 in Greece was felt with maximum intensity V in Varnavas, Peuki, Akharnai, and Amarousion, Attiki, Greece and IV in Attiki at Pikermion, Pallini, Khalandrion, Vrilissia, Melissia, Marathon, Kapandrition, Anoixis, and Kifisia, and in general within about 50 km of the epicenter. An M 4.4 in the same area was felt with intensity II-IV in many of the same communities. The last events in this area within about 100 km of these epicenter with M>=4.4 occurred on December 31, 2017 with M 5.0. Forecast 113631 had expected this activity within about 150 km of these epicenters was likely around January 15. These epicenters are at 103-104 degrees from  Southern Peru and were probably promoted by that M 7.1 there by concentrated seismic energy.

The strongest earthquake in the U.S. or Canada today was an M 4.9 in the Bering Sea of Alaska. It was not reported felt in that remote area. This is the strongest earthquake in this area within about 300 km of this epicenter since an M 4.9 on July 10, 2006. Two earthquakes have occurred in the area with M>4.9 during the past 25 years - an M 5.0 on August 9, 1996 and an M 5.2 aftershock on November 3, 1996. This epicenter is located at 107 degrees from the M 7.1 in southern Peru as was probably promoted by concentrated seismic energy from that event.

While the M 4.9 in the Bering Strait, Alaska was the largest quake in the  U.S. or Canada today a series of moderate events in the Vancouver Island area made that the most active region today. These included an M 4.4 and two M 4.5 events. The M 4.4 occurred within about 15 minutes of local solar noon and was probably promoted by tidal effects which maximize at this hour.  The last earthquake of M>=4.5 in this region of Canada was an M 4.7 on November 21, 2017. Earthquakes in the area often follow strong nor'easters such as occurred last week. Forecast 113696 expected this event within about 50 km of these epicenters was likely around January 15.

An unusual earthquake of M 4.7 hit northeastern China near Helongjiang today. It was not immediately reported felt in the region. This epicenter is located at 144 degrees from southern Peru, a distance at which seismic energy concentrates at the surface following large earthquakes. This may have helped promote this event in China. Forecast 113673 had expected a regional event in NE China between January 14 and 18. The last earthquake within about 250 km of this epicenter with M>=4.7 occurred on January 1, 2016 with M 5.7 and prior to that on November 19, 2013 (M 4.8). Two other such events have hit the area in the

past 25 years - an M 6.4 on September 15, 2002 and an M 4.8 on October 1, 1993.

OTHER GLOBAL EARTHQUAKE ACTIVITY

 

For most events there are two listings. The first line is the observed event starting with "O:" for Observed. There follows the date, month and year, the time in UT hours:minutes:seconds, the latitude and longitude, the given magnitude and the reporting agency followed by the geographic location. The second line starts with "P:" This is the forecast event as forecast in our summaries normally more than a month in advance. Magnitudes may vary in response to updated seismic watches and daily variations due to tidal and other influences. This line has the forecast date, month and year, the forecast number, latitude, longitude and forecast magnitude range.  This is followed by a comparison between the forecast and the event. The comparison includes letters A-D. The first is number of days difference from predicted (A:up to 2, B3-5; C:6-10; D:more than 10), Difference in latitude (A:up to 1 degree; B:1-2 degrees; C:2-4 degrees; D:more than 4 degrees); longitude (same comparison as with latitude); magnitude (A: within forecast range; B: higher than forecast range; C: lower than forecast range; D: no comparison possible). The last letter is a stand in for a future comparison which needs to be done statistically after a large number of forecasts have been made. In previous data, an excellent match is generally AAAAA; a good match as one or two B's; a fair match has several B's and C's and a poor match is one which contains a number of C's or D's.
