if we can see back in time 14.7bn years to the big bang then why on earth can we not predict earth quakes ?

Sevens are big but if we start to hit eight then some serious damage will follow in the area.

Yellowstone they say has been acting up but it's hard to tell because you hear these reports all the time

Task force called hart. Very interesting, looks like they only get called out if its serious.
If they can tell some of the pressure is relieved on the faultline, wouldnt they be able to even just somewhat accurately predict an impending earthquake?

I think the Solomons are in for another ride within the next 48 hours.
I hope they know how to handle it, the cyclone hit them pretty hard aswell, tough times.
The people are really suffering.

Earthquakes are really a random phenomena. Imagine each tectonic plate is a piece of shattered safety glass interlocked with other pieces. When you try and move one, sometimes small bits will break off. Other times large bits break off. And they can move in several different directions: sideways, one going down while pushing the other up into a mountain. That acts as a latch spring/guillotine where the weight of the mountain will snap off bits of tectonic plate, while tectonic movement and the compression/tension of the rock ratchets up the spring again.

- it's no different from trying to predict avalanches. You can simulate this by pouring grains of salt or sugar from a cup one by one onto a pile on the plate. Frequently a single grain lands on top of other without anything happening. Very often one might displace one grain, and very infrequently a whole cascade or avalanche occurs.

Maybe solar storms or the magnetic field of the earth along with the semi-liquid state of the mantle plays a part too.

looking back at history and time is not at all the same as predicting the future. unfortunately. it does help us to understand things but it doesn't magically help us predict everything.

I'm pretty sure they are still learning about this subject. They probably have enough information to make a logical possible prediction. They could learn a lot if this pans out. Maybe in ten years they will have enough verifications to be comfortable enough to make good predictions. They have a lot of sensors out there in the world now and they will help with evidence to make their predictions better. None of this would have been possible thirty years ago, they didn't have enough technology in place and know how to understand what they were seeing.

So I assume that your expecting a larger quake hitting Soloman Islands soon? Say an 8plus. Or what?

The depths and the frequencies of these quakes are very alarming.

Those people over there are going to need immediate help.

My prayers are with them.

They use mag 5's to stir their coffee in that region. LOL. Hardly worth their attention.

Interesting as it shows a steady climb in Magnitude over the last 3 days. Thanks for keeping us up on these quakes TA. I was reading another thread, can't find it now, but the jist was that the blood moon along with the solar activity would be causing some large quakes in the next few days.

ETA: Well, maybe not in a series. I looked at magnitude on that Source site and thought it was increasing. Obviously it was sorted by magnitude. My mistake....

the blood moon is caused by the shadow of the earth on the moon. It's a lunar eclipse. How is a shadow going to affect earthquakes I'd like to know?
A lunar eclipse doesn't even have any obstacles between us and the moon in case someone wants to claim some gravitational effects being blocked. It's only the shadow of the earth.
A solar eclipse on the other hand puts the moon between us and the sun and is an actual block out of sunlight.

Both the Sun and Moon have gravitational influence on the Earth. The Sun's influence is far less than the Moon's though, but it is still there. Every heard of Spring or Neap tides?

"Spring tides occur when the Sun and Moon line up, since the gravities of the two bodies add together to create larger tidal forces. Neap tides occur when the Sun and Moon are at right angles to one another as seen from Earth. In this case, the gravitational forces counteract each other, creating weaker tidal forces. — Neil F. Comins, "A New Slant on Earth", Astronomy, Vol. 20, Iss. 7; pg. 44, 6 pgs; Jul, 1992"

With the tides, each object such as the Moon causes the Earth to become bit more elliptical, longer in one direction and narrower in the other. When they line up this effect is even stronger. At other times they cancel. So depending on where the snags in the fault lines are, that change in stress could be enough to unlock them.

So is this the third around the Solomon Islands or? Media is saying there have only been two.

Interesting that their have been way more 7-10 earthquakes in the 90's than the 80's and more so in the 00's than the 90's. Maybe this is a trend of increasing frequency of huge earthquakes. If any year in the 10's outdoes 2007's 4 8-9.9 quakes that would be... impressively improbable. In the 80's a 8-9.9 quake was rare, never happened twice in a year, only two years in a row once. Maybe we're building up to a super massive record breaking earthquake. Really the trend is either extremely obvious or the 1980's was unusually calm.

When did 7.0 earthquakes get classified as "Pre" quakes? Couldn't they just be earthquakes? Seems like the are shifts going on. I don't see them as build ups more than regular quakes. The earth is just releasing stress (and, it's under a lot). Good thing they are not near populated cities. Hopefully we won't hear of one near Krakatoa area.

Because it is generally accepted that aftershocks typically are around 1 magnitude lower than the original quake. There are rare instances this is not the case, but that is the exception. Example: Chili recently - large quake followed by a larger quake followed by the actual earthquake the foreshocks were announcing. If the quakes get larger or stay near the same magnitude, then those may well be foreshocks to a larger earthquake still coming.

So a large quake in one area followed by near-equal size quakes in the same area is always a concern.
