    YUP. The area North of NZ is another such area with even a deeper range of quakes. I think that area and Japan are the deepest I recall viewing on that viewer. Do you know of a typically deeper region?

    Ahhhhhhhhh . . . found one of the other ones . . . MUZZY-WORLD–NEW ZEALAND.

    NOPE. Chile doesn’t show a very thick range of quakes, either. Maybe another area was Tonga. Will check that.

    • PuterMan says:

      Chile is just the starting point for the descent to the bottom of the Wadati-Benioff zone in that area. Most of the quakes in the deep zone of that slope happen under Argentina or Brazil. Other Wadati-Benioff deep base zones are Eastern Russia, The Philipines and Fiji

      This is a list of the deep ( > 599.99km ) quake between 1900 and 2001 from the Centenial Catalog of the USGS odered by Latitude and Longitude

    Puterman, Was just checking out IRIS’ 3D viewer again after a long breaking using it. IIRC, there was another glocal location or two showing very deep or at least moderately deep quake areas–one is Japan and one is Sicily. Seems like, to me, there was another area or two on the planet. Do you know if that’s true and what areas they were? Don’t recall if a portion of the Chile coastline is one such or not. I can go check on that.

    I always found that odd. I don’t think even Juan de Fuca nor San Francisco area show such. All the other quake prone areas, that I recall checking on a few years ago–on the IRIS 3D viewer–show quakes that appear to be in a RELATIVELY thin layer on the not quite so relatively thick ‘surface’ of the globe.

    Have you ever noticed that? What do you make of it?

    • PuterMan says:

      See my reply above on depths. The reason that San Francisco does not have them is because it is not what they call a subduction zone. The JDF plate does have them but the are not as deep as the other Pacific rim areas mainly because it is a smaller plate.

    YEA . . . Finally have some access to you in spite of my irrational/hypocritical ‘temporary post ban’ now going on 2 years at ‘TOS.’ Sigh.

    Anyway–cataracts–EVIDENTLY it’s quite effective to take food grade castor oil and put 2 drops in, per needed eye for a month or two. I have slight beginnings of such and am giving it a try.

    Have installed Win 10 as well. Am furious with Microslop about what Win 10 did with my photos. The folders on the large flash drive are still there but show as empty when I access them. I can stumble around and finally gain access to the photos but still can’t figure out “WHERE” they are stored, much less how to return them to where I had them. GRRRRR.

    Thanks for all y’all do on quakes and volcanoes. BTW, is there a site I could reach MUZZY on?

  7. Maureen Comeau says:

    OK I live in a small town called Yarmouth, in Nova Scotia Canada, and I have just felt something I’ve never felt before…an earthquake. Don’t know what it registered but it was felt by the entire region. This happened only moments ago and I’d just like to share this with you guys, is all. Sure was scary though.

    • PuterMan says:

      Nothing showing in the listings yet. I will keep an eye out for it. This is the link for eastern Canada Eastern Canada, Earthquakes of the last 30 days

    • PuterMan says:
