This week's earthquake events in the Intermountain West

Seismic events north of Sandy for the week

For those of you who follow the descriptions of my hobby of observing local seismic activity (Earthquakes, Mate!), you know my area of Interest is the Intermountain Corridor (Utah to Yellowstone), again this week fairly quiet with a mere 19 events , all under 2.0.

 The usual map I provide is devoid of place names, so in the interests of  more explanation I have included two smaller area maps one to the north, the other to the south closer to my location of Sandy UT, each recording four events during the week. Sandy UT appears on both maps marked with an X.

Ever wondered what fault lines are?

US Seismic Service notes: Brown lines (on the maps) represent known hazardous faults or fault zones. White lines are roads.


As usual, my interest in seismic activity is to inform,

never to alarm

There always seems to be more seismic activities during warmer months. Any scientific reason behind it?

Sarah - you have raised an interesting point that my observations have not yet considered. I will dig up a couple of years data to see if your hypothesis is supported. I take seismic activity as natural and a given. I observe - I do not predict.
