The 2.2 Blackpool Earthquake was recorded at Keele University, Staffordshire. Our ‘Schools Seismometer‘ record had to be heavily filtered to get rid of the background noise.

We also had a Guralp 6TD recording and its record is here (with thanks to Sam Toon).

Information from the British Geological Survey.

  1. Earthquake on the Fylde Coast? and to think the Americans still insist on storing gas under the fields here.

    • I was waiting for who was going to be the first one to bring that one up.

      Take a look at the depth – 11.2km – way, way deeper than any carbon dioxide sequestration or shale gas extraction planned.
