A rare earthquake took place yesterday close to my geophone in Hvammstangi village. But that village is located in north-west Iceland. This earthquake was small and I do not have location at moment, as I only have one geophone at this location for recording earthquakes.What I do know about this earthquake was around 25 km away from my geophone, with the default depth at 10 km. But this distance is a bit inaccurate due to default depth factors. So this is just a best effort guess. But what I do have is the wave form of this earthquake.
All the pictures here above show the 20 seconds wave form signal of the earthquake. I have marked the P and S wave of the earthquake in order to figure out the distance this earthquake took place from my geophone.
In this area I get around one to two earthquakes a year that are local and do not appear on the Iceland Met Office earthquake list. But that happens because there are few to none SIL seismometers in this area and IMO can only detect earthquakes that are larger then ML1.5 to 2.5 in size.
If I get a location on this earthquake, I am going to update this blog post.
