Today at 12:49 UTC an earthquake with a magnitude of Mw7,4 happened on the other side of the world. This earthquake was clearly detected in Iceland because the P-wave reflected off Earth iro-nickel core and that directed the P-wave towards Iceland where it was recorded as a Mw4,1 earthquake but was later downgraded to Mw1,5 at 92km depth (this is a fake local earthquake, SIL does not properly deal with this type of earthquakes).
Here is how this earthquake was detected with my geophones in Iceland.
I normally don’t record earthquakes from the other side of the world because I am using short period geophones to record earthquakes and those are only used normally for local earthquakes with distances less than 500 km. I can record earthquakes properly up to a distance of 6000 km if the earthquake is large enough (Mw6,0 or larger).
Please remember to support my work. Currently I am broke but things are starting to look better from July since I no longer have high hosting costs to pay. Thanks for the support. 🙂
I am currently working from 08:00 to 16:00. This is going to lower my response time if anything happens in Iceland until after 16:00 when I get home from work.
In the future I am going to be adding Google Adsense back to this website if I get approved. That is going to lower the requirement for donations once that system is in place at the cost of more advertising on this website. I don’t know when that is going to happen but this is going to take several months until I put this place into working phase because its tied into other plans that I have.
