Weekly Geophysical: 25 Jan 13


Summary of report week: USGS is listing 23 events, EMSC is listing 27 events and GFX Potsdam is listing 25 events. You can view each of these listings below. No active category force storms. Max 5 actively erupting volcanoes over and above the 17 always erupting.

Using converted magnitudes (mb to Mw etc) USGS converts to 67 events, one of which becomes a mag 6 and EMSC converts to 62 events. Potsdam events cannot normally be converted as the scale is not known.

Earthquakes for w/e 25 January 2013

Full details of Mag 6+ earthquakes can be found here (There were none in this report week for the primary provider USGS)

The listings for each of the main global providers is shown 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.
