Weekly Geophysical: 11 Jan 13


Summary of report week: USGS is listing 28 events, EMSC is listing 29 events and GFX Potsdam is listing 29 events. You can view each of these listings below. 2 active category force storms. Max 4 actively erupting volcanoes over and above the 17 always erupting.

In addition to the magnitude 5+ listed above there was an increase in the number of magnitude 4+ during the week which was mainly because of the Alaskan quake and a swarm at Carlsberg Ridge (18 events EMSC) mainly on the 8th and 9th of Jan. Further swarm activity occurred at the Virgin Islands (49 events USGS) mainly in the magnitude 3 range over the 9th, 10th, 11th and ongoing on the 12th. The largest events so far are the 2 x Mag 4 events listed below.

Volcanoes

Volcano information gathered from various sources, including the Smithsonian Weekly Volcanic Activity Report from which confirmation of reports is taken.

A volcano is only included in the listing if there is significant ash above 1km height (white/steam clouds are not counted) or there is a significant lave flow. Crater incandescence, unless accompanied by the either of the preceding does qualify as an eruption.
