Energy Released by Registered Earthquakes

Energy Released Expressed as the Number of Equivalent 5.0-5.9 Magnitude Earthquakes


NOTIFICATION

As the result of the changes in the data reporting format by the National Earthquake Information Center, which will make the data processing extremely time consuming, we are discontinuing the updates of this page.

The purpose of the changes in their data processing and reporting techniques may have been to hide from the general public the continuing increase in worldwide seismic activity.

If you doubt our words make a comparison between the current reports by the National Earthquake Information Center and those from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Center.

One has to be on total denial not to believe what is being withheld to the U.S. general public.

The only way you can get an idea of what is truly taking place seismically is to regularly visit a page which shows the Seismographs readings around the world updated every 30 minutes.


Graphic for Energy Released From 1980 through 2010

( Energy released expressed in terms of 5.0-5.9 magnitude earthquakes = "M5 Equivalents" )

The seismic data was acquired from the National Earthquake Information Center (1)
The logic used for energy estimates is explained in detail in a separate document (2)

 Energy released per Five Years Period




Example: The bar shown spanning 2005-2010 period indicates the total energy released by all the recorded earthquakes in the five year period encompassing 2005 through 2009, expressed in terms of the energy released by 5.0-5.9 earthquakes in the Richter scale, which were 360,106



Energy released on a Weekly Basis

From May 2010 through October 2012

( Energy released expressed in terms of 5.0-5.9 magnitude earthquakes = "M5 Equivalents" )

The seismic data was acquired from the National Earthquake Information Center (1)
The logic used for energy estimates is explained in detail in a separate document (2)



[ Example: In the week 06/06/10 to 06/12/10 the total energy released by registered earthquakes, expressed in terms of 5.0-5.9 earthquakes in the Richter scale, were 1,081.73 ]

Note added on April 29, 2012: For the week of 04/08/2012 to 04/14/2012 (above) you may note a massive "total energy released" of 65,790 units and (on the table below) you will note an "equivalent 5.0-5.9 magnitude earthquake in a day" of  9,398.62. These numbers significantly exceed the numbers calculated when the recent earthquake hit the Fukushima area of Japan back on the week of  03/06/2011 to 03/12/2011. The "Fukushima week" numbers were 37,168 and  5,309.67 respectively.

The reason for  the apparent anomaly  is that on 04/11/2012 two different earthquakes of magnitudes between 8 and 9 on the Richter scale took place (*) while in Japan there was only one earthquake between 8 and 9 on March 11, 2011. (**)

Magnitude 8.2;  Date 2012/04/11 10:43:09;  Lat. 0.773;  Long. 92.452;  Depth 16.4;  Region OFF THE WEST COAST OF NORTHERN SUMATRA;   Details Here

Magnitude  8.9;  Date 2011/03/11 05:46:24;  Lat. 38.322;  Long. 142.369;  Depth 24.4;  Region NEAR THE EAST COAST OF HONSHU, JAPAN

(3) Measured in equivalent 5.0-5.9 magnitude earthquakes. In other words, one unit in the table is equivalent to the energy released by an 5.0-5.9 magnitude earthquake. Please note that an 6.0-6.9 magnitude earthquake develops 32 times the energy of an 5.0-5.9 magnitude earthquake. In general, and by definition of the scale, one unit of difference between magnitude means a factor of 32 in energy released. Abbreviated as M5.
(4) Days of data available to us.
(5) If the data relative to a day differs in distinct reports from the source (which is common due to additions and revisions) then we get the results from the most recent report avalaible to us.
