seismic events: Seismic skew from the West Yellowstone end of the Intermountain West - 11/25/13 05:37 AM
Seismic skew from the West Yellowstone end of the Intermountain West
My hobby has me observing seismic events (earthquakes) for the Intermountain Corridor (Utah to Yellowstone) on a weekly basis (168 hour period).
My intention always is to inform, never to predict or alarm.
A week is a short time in earth history, but it provides a manageable duration for hobby observation.
This week West Yellowstone featured as though it was trying to be the only deb at the ball.
For the 91 events for the week, West Yellowstone MT accounted for 53 of them with a few others in MT … (2 comments)

X marks the spot - Sandy Utah

I like to think that I am really involved in my hobby activities especially the low cost, or no cost ones.  Observing seismic activity (earthquakes) in seven day intervals in the Intermountain West with me located in the middle of the observed area suits my criteria. My information comes from the University of Utah Seismic Station just up the road in Salt Lake City UT.
This precise information is updated regularly as it is reported. I could check hourly and often find new results. My choice of weekly intervals allows me easy observations … (5 comments)

A lot to look at. Seismic events for the week - the Intermountain West

Let's look at the seismic events (earthquakes) for the Intermountain West (Utah to Yellowstone). 116 events in the last seven days - all in the micro range.
I get my data and maps from the US Seismic Service located at the University of Utah. My intention is always to inform, never to alarm.
I make a hobby of observing seismic events for the Intermountain West on a weekly basis. If you draw a corner to corner X on the map, you will find that I … (3 comments)

What's with a bump or two every so often
Everyone should have a hobby. Mine just happens to be observing seismic events (earthquakes).  My area of interest is the Intermountain Corridor (Utah to Yellowstone). Draw an X from corner to corner ~ the cross-over indicates where I live in Sandy UT. This gives me involvement in my observations.
Since waiting for seismic events is about as appealing as watching paint peel, I take my observations for weekly intervals from information provided by the US Seismic Service located at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City (just up the road … (12 comments)

seismic events: Quiet week in the Intermountain West - 11/23/12 07:12 AM
Quiet week in the Intermountain West

 
Observing Seismic Events (earthquakes) is a hobby that I enjoy. My area of interest is the Intermountain West (Utah to Yellowstone), chosen because I live at the middle of the map, in Sandy UT.
 
Information about Utah describes living in Earthquake Country, and Government information also lists suggested precautions to observe. Of particular interest to me are those dealing with seniors and persons with disabilities.
 
My hobby interest seeks to inform, never to alarm. For as long as, and wherever, I have indulged this hobby I have found myself somewhat of … (3 comments)

seismic events: Week's seismic activity in the Intermountain West - 11/16/12 02:10 AM
Week's seismic activity in the Intermountain West

 
Seismic Events (earthquakes) fascinate me. They confirm to me that we exist on a living planet. My hobby is observing seismic events over a period of a week for the Intermountain West (Utah and Yellowstone Regions).
 
The map of the observed area places me, in Sandy UT, right in the middle of this active earthquake region. My interest in seismic activity is to inform, never to alarm.
 
I obtain my information from the US Seismic Service located at the University of Utah. Each event is accompanied with plentiful data.

A more peaceful week for seismic events in the Intermountain West.
My hobby is observing seismic events (earthquakes) in the Intermountain West region (Utah to Yellowstone) on a weekly basis. I usually post a summary of events on a Tuesday. My location is about the middle of the map in Sandy UT.
As always my intent is to inform, never to alarm.
This week produced 22 events for the region, way down from the 50 last week. All were in the micro category (less than 3.0). A friend in the south of Utah commented on one of them ~ most … (4 comments)

A week of seismic events provide fascination.
A week of 37 seismic events (earthquakes) in the Intermountain West (Utah to Yellowstone - the Intermountain Corridor) for the last week.
The information to fuel my hobby (to inform, never to alarm) of observing seismic activity in this region is provided by the US Seismic Service located at the University of Utah. Information provided for each event is more detailed than is necessary for my weekly written observations, but I find it fascinating.
I live in Sandy UT, at the approximate middle of the map for my observed region. I like to … (6 comments)

Like scattering confetti in the Intermountain West, a shake or two...
A minor earthquake (a 3.1) a few hour hours ago at Kanosh UT, 29 seismic events (earthquakes) for the week in the Intermountain West (Utah to Yellowstone) 28 in the micro category, 22 of the events for the week within the borders of Utah, 6 of those events near Huntington UT. Our portion of the seismic event map produced by the US Seismic Service, located at the University of Utah looks like a confetti scatter, making the Yellowstone part looks like it has been napping this last week

seismic events: Just like the Olympics - 08/07/12 04:47 AM
Just like the Olympics
Talk about getting its nose in a knot by being outdone last week by a 3.6 minor earthquake in Emery UT, West Yellowstone WY replied late last evening with a 3.2 also in the minor range, and the biggest for the week, in a time when they just edged out Utah 24 -20 in all events (earthquakes) for the same period.
Gardiner MT had registered an early 2.3. but this was held in check by Smithfield UT also with a 2.3 micro two days later. Micro range was the norm for the week.
Sounds as exciting … (2 comments)

seismic events: Observation and Preparation - 07/30/12 11:12 PM
Observation and Preparation 37 seismic events (Earthquakes) for the last 168 hour (one week) period of observation. One event at 3.6 yesterday morning near Emery UT, in the minor earthquake category ~ the remainder registered in the micro category (with one at 2.3).

This is a week in the Intermountain West (Utah to Yellowstone). My hobby is observing seismic events in this area.
My choice of area is because I live here; information is readily available from the US Seismic Service at the University of Utah. My hobby is one of observation NOT prediction. My intent is to inform, never … (2 comments)

seismic events: The Bigger Picture - 07/24/12 09:06 PM
The Bigger Picture
My hobby is the observation od seismic events (earthquakes) on a weekly basis in the Intermountain West.
My normal observation is the Intermountain Corridor (Utah to Yellowstone).
During the last week the US Seismic Service recorded 26 events (22 UT, 3 MT, and one yesterday in Leadore,ID, a 2.3) all in the micro range. Utah's largest event was also a 2.3 at Trenton UT, last Wednesday.
This week I have used the map of ANSS (Advanced National Seismic System) which nicely includes my major area of interest as well as recording activity in surrounding States. This map shows … (6 comments)

seismic events: A week of earthquakes in the Intermountain West. - 06/04/12 08:35 AM
A week of earthquakes in the Intermountain West.
The Intermountain West corridor: All of Utah and up to Yellowstone; a discrete part of the US allowing me to indulge my hobby of observing seismic events on a weekly basis.
 
Micro earthquakes, minor earthquakes and any biggies: they are all interesting to watch. When, where, how big (on the Richter Scale), how deep, their effect on local topography ~ all interesting, to me, at least.
 
And a week is a non-demanding period of observation supported by a progressive map provided by the US Seismic Service, at the University of … (18 comments)

seismic events: Perhaps our world is resting - 05/28/12 11:00 AM
Perhaps our world is resting In the time that I have been observing earthquake occurrences for the Intermountain Corridor I have looked at intervals of 168 hours (one week), expecting 30 to 50 events for each interval - normal earth movement.

This week I can only report nine events, with a top one of 2.7, near Boulder UT. It is as though our earth is resting - all quiet. But then again, a week is but a flicker in earth time.
Today I have included two of the documents along with the familiar map I read during my observations. Wherever you … (2 comments)
