Hey guys sorry I haven't been doing many blog posts lately! I know probably almost nobody reads my blog posts, since my website here gets very low views, but I still like to post stuff that interests me. I have been doing more YouTube videos lately than blog posts. Of course this website contains alot of information already that has nothing to do with my blog. I am looking for new suggestions for new pages to add to this website so please feel free to email me or comment below (if the comment box is working).
Texas felt a magnitude 4.0 earthquake today at 5.3km in depth just 15km NNE of Amarillo, Texas. The two images directly below show the basic information provided by USGS and the location of this earthquake. As of the time I am writing this over 1,055 people have REPORTED feeling this quake. That means many more actually felt it since not everybody reports to the USGS. PLEASE CLICK THE TITLE OF THIS ARTICLE OR CLICK "READ MORE" TO READ THE REST OF THIS POST!
Now the seismic analysis image below, containing both the seismogram and spectrogram of this event, is taken from seismic station SMWD in the TX network. Since this data was taken from a broadband vertical station, I set a 0.9HZ high pass filter to filter out all frequencies below 0.9HZ to make it "look" more like a short period station. Note the amount of time for this earthquake was quite long! Almost 5 minutes long!
Directly below the analysis image is also and image of the helicorder for this station and time period. Thank you for reading and have a great day!
