Mapping seismicity in southern Chile 23 June 2008

Rafael Peralta has brought his Enjambre de Aysén blog to my attention. It focuses on seismicity along the Liquiñe-Ofqui Fault Zone that dominates southern Chile for around 1000km: Chaitén is pretty much right in the middle. The blog publishes seismic maps derived from USGS data (hence the quakes of 28/29/30 May, which seemed to hit a USGS blindspot, are not shown). An excerpt showing the Chaitén region, showing the quakes that preceded the eruption is given below. Visit Enjambre de Aysén to find out more.
