Earthquakes: Europe & Middle east UPDATE

This is an update to my previous report "August 14 Earthquakes"


Well my friends, the deeper I dig, the harder I scratch my head and the angrier and more frustrated I get.  I woke up ridiculously early this morning and decided to take a look at the USGS and EMSC earthquake updates for today... then did a comparison for the past week between the two sites using the same criteria.

...Something is definitely going on here. I set the search criteria for the past 7 days, for the same area, showing all earthquakes above 2.0 magnitude, any depth.

 First, here is a screen shot of the USGS map from 7am this morning:


USGS Aug 18 7am
The USGS shows 34 earthquakes in the past 7 days for this area- which includes southern Europe and middle east.

Second: Here is a screen shot of the EMSC map, using the exact same search criteria:

EMSC aug 18 7am
The European Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) is reporting, using the EXACT same search criteria,  432 earthquakes in this area in the past 7 days.  Even more interestingly, of those 432 earthquakes, only 54 of those earth quakes measured a depth of 11km or deeper and 179 measured 5km deep OR LESS.

All the Iranian earthquakes measure 10km or less- and most were a depth of EXACTLY 10km.

According to the EMSC there have been 35 earthquakes in the past 7 days that have been magnitude 5.0 or higher.  There have been 550 earthquakes globally of a magnitude 2.5 or greater.

According to the USGS there have been 25 earthquakes in the past 7 days that have been magnitude 5.0 or higher. There have been 201 earth quakes globally of a magnitude 2.5 or greater.
