Earthquake and Volcano Threat (for USA) Increases

The title says it all:


Citing new research included in the SSRC's semi-annual Global Climate Status Report (GCSR) to come out on Wednesday, the letter to FEMA's Craig Fugate contained an important warning for all major earthquake fault zones and volcanically active areas. The research focuses especially on the increased threat for the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ) between St. Louis and Memphis.

This new threat information is contained in one of several papers in the June 10 edition of the GCSR paper authored by Mr. Casey and Dr. Dong Choi, Director of Research for the International Earthquake and Volcano Prediction Center (IEVPC). The paper shows that the NMSZ is due for another calamitous quake between 2017 and 2038. Dr. Choi and Casey show that for four times in a row since the year 1450, a major quake strikes the NMSZ when the Sun has gone into a hibernation phase. This scientific revelation is what Choi and Casey believes solves the puzzle of when the next major quake will strike the area. Geologists have studied the NMSZ for many years using traditional approaches. Casey and Choi say it is the combined research from the fields of solar physics and geology that provides the best opportunity to date to estimate when the next devastating NMSZ earthquake will strike. Other scientists agree with their opinion.

For this singular reason Dr. Choi and Mr. Casey have strongly recommended to FEMA Administrator Fugate that all high risk earthquake fault zones and areas with a history of volcanic eruptions in the USA take immediate precautions to mitigate what they describe as a "period of unparalleled geophysical lethality and destruction."

Mr. Casey adds, "The very strong correlation between these solar minimums and the incidence of catastrophic earthquakes worldwide is an impressive display of how interconnected we all are to our natural world and the cycles of the Sun. It would be foolhardy to ignore in particular, the history of major earthquakes in the NMSZ and the fact that at the bottom of every solar hibernation for the past 600 years, that area has seen devastating earthquakes ranging from M6.8 to M8.0.


"While we address the New Madrid risk in this press release and in the June 10, 2016 Global Climate Status Report, the coincidence of major earthquakes with solar minimums is not limited to just that area of the US. That is why our letter to Administrator Fugate was a nationwide alert. The ~M9.0 Cascadia quake and tsunami of 1700 was at the bottom of the coldest solar hibernation period which was called the Maunder Minimum. The Great San Francisco quake of 1906 was at the bottom of another solar low point - the ‘Centennial' Minimum as it is called at the SSRC. This strong association of solar activity and the worst earthquakes and volcanic eruptions could represent the ‘missing link' for geophysical disaster prediction."

Dr. Choi (Australia) also supports Casey's opinion by saying, "The extensive research done in this area is clear in its implications. When the solar minimums arrive, the worst recorded earthquakes and volcanic eruptions strike. The last solar minimum for example, saw the largest series of earthquakes in human history in the NMSZ and the largest recorded volcanic eruption at Mt. Tambora in Indonesia. These events occurred within a few years of each other during the coldest period in the Sun's last hibernation in the early 1800's."

Thoughts and suggestions? Science or doom-porn, you decide.
Thanks for reading,


Cheers!

Interesting the correlation between hibernation phase of the Sun and super quakes. Though it seems the article is talking more about quakes than volcanoes. Either way...seems we have a few years to wait yet!

Very interesting indeed.

A few? Hopefully...


The paper shows that the
NMSZ is due for another calamitous quake between 2017 and 2038.

I just read some research on the relationship of solar minimums and increased seizmic activity with a theory as to how it works. It was very interesting how during a minimum certain frequencies of energy can penetrate the earth more. I guess they have been gaining evidence for a while now.

This would mean that all earthquake activity goes up, mild activity might actually lessen the big one's effect though. Either way, a bigger one is due.

I'd take the SSRC with a (rather large) grain of salt...

Then there are Gran Minimums



Ice core data shows the much feared +2°C climate ‘tipping point’ has already occurred…
Posted on June 1, 2015 (see graph)




The current historically weak solar cycle is a continuation of the twenty-year downward trend in sunspot cycle strength that began in “Solar Cycle 22.” If this trend continues for the next couple of cycles, then the Earth could suffer another “grand minimum” event, similar to the “Maunder” and “Dalton” that caused the last “Little Ice Age.”

Two weak, but probably statistically significant, periodicities of ~11 and ~80 years are detected. Both cycles appear to correlate with well-known cycles of solar activity; the phasing is such that the frequency of volcanic eruptions increases (decreases) slightly around the times of solar minimum (maximum)

Not saying that there isn't validity to the general claims in the "paper", just that their science has been highly suspect in the past and it's more likely they're sensationalizing to promote their website than actually attempting to do serious science. As I said, grain of salt..

Just a theory. We know that the Earth and Sun are energetically connected. Could it be that when the Sun is in its active state its suppressing geomagnetic energy? And when it goes dormant, the Earth is allowed to releases pent up energy? Kind of like a Yin/Yang relationship.

I really don't worry about things like this since they are beyond our control. The science is interesting, but I already know I won't be getting out of this life alive.

And now we even have a second (and rather good) source for this theory at hand, thanks a lot!

I think that depleting our underground water is something to worry more about than this. We can do something about wasting water, we can't do anything about the sun.

Spon on! But it's interesting nevertheless and I just needed to verify this theory for myself.
I did't intend to make this story bigger than all the # we can actually do something about...

There's no known way of predicting earthquakes (see: Nepal) outside of Hollywood schlockbuster films. These events are 'acts of "God" '; as distinct from the saving of a life through organ transplantation or the invention of the transistor, leading to the computers we're conversing through now.
