Today I refined the red graphs a bit more, they were a little small and hard to see what was actually going on each day.
To do so I changed from Flipcard style to Snapshot. A few CSS tweeks and it looks a lot better, even has the date supplied via the post title so I don't have to mess about with the image editing as much.
I'm all graphed out for the day.

Oh, forget my words. Here's a picture. Does it look like the Salton Sea is calming down.
I am about to introduce a new term known to few if any on ATS, but known to the volcanology scientific community. It is called a "distal earthquake swarm". This is a condition that occurs prior to many a volcanic eruption, and was discovered fairly recently by a couple of scientific researchers. It has been used already successfully in predicting a couple of volcanic eruptions.
I will leave it up to you, those that really want to know, to search this out for themselves and learn.
But the point here is this: the Salton Sea area has a volcanic history. It might be possible that this massive swarm is a new "distal" magmatic intrusion. They typically occur around 15 to 20 km from the actual volcano. I admit, it is a highly unlikely theory, but it is possible. Please, research this thoroughly before commenting on this post- and perhaps you will see why I am suggesting this. The quakes are at about the right depth and about the right distance. Still, rather unlikely.
