Just to prove to you all, that I am a warrior, and will keep watch, never falling asleep on duty, I have just endure a torture.
I couldn't the debate last night as I said. I did it tonight. I watch the whole whole thing. Wow. I made. After endure such at thing, I turned my gaze
back to where I was last night. And again, it seems swarmy. I'm cooking soup. Oh my god I'm a good cook. I'm distracted. 3.5M folks. This, I think, is
more energetic than 2012 and 2015. Least, what I remember. There was a swarm, but this is seems to be continuing.
I'll post shot of last one
Oh, the Salton Sea is one of the weirdest places on earth. Look up documentaries...
124 in the last day
217 since it started
wow, numbers count, but so doesn't magnitude. 22 today have been above 2.5M
Oh, my soup and gravy are so good. I was stirring around and keeping it at the right level. When I decided to slow down the boiling, and sit, and came
and found the swarm is continuing in earnest. Two around 3.5M. I'll post shot
I don't even like soup. That's why I know I make the best soup. If I can tolerate it, it must be magnificent. I did have a job as a cook once.
Oh also, it seems we have a volcanic theme to the earthquakes. So, I must mention Nicaragua has been quiet, but today, near a volcano, it popped one
of near 5M
Ha, I'm not used to fast USGS update. I saw a new 3+ and went< "What?" I didn't see it. And then, bam, it was there. So, we have 3 3M+ in the last
couple hours. wow
I just found something official from the USGS on the swarm. And, I quote, "Earthquake Swarm near Salton Buttes is not volcanic."
I'm taking this totally seriously. Why? Because they are going into detail to detail this swarm. So, we were right in calling swarmy. I found this
stuff, because I was trying to get my dates right. To be honest, this makes me think I was way off course in think it was 2015 and 2012. In fact, this
must mean the swarms I'm thinking about were at the southern end of the sea. So, I still have to pinpoint those swarms. This means, this freakin' Sea
is shaking and regularly.
Now, as for the argument with the USGS, is it volcanic? Yes, and no. I was just starting to realize that the trend perfectly fit the right angles that
would fill in the end of the San An. The reason for the gap is that this area has not been shown to be active enough to map the fault. Well, it would
seem this is the end of the San Andres. Also, I think it is volcanic. As the area is a rift, it is splitting apart. The magma heats the crust and
allows the fault to spread and fracture. Let's use physics to answer anything we need for the future. And, I'm sorry, my answer will involve water.
Water has mass. The Salton Sea has water. But, the Salton Sea is drying up and fast. This means that the thin crust which lies below this area will
thin even more as the two different pressures "work it out". If, the water is evaporating due to drought and other reasons, this means the mass
putting a downward forces is lessened. And, if we assume, the hot magma pushing upward on the thin crust, is forcing the rift apart, we can see why
the equilibrium has been lost, and now the fracture which fills in the gap, can now be seen clearly.
Yes, it's tectonic. Meaning, the fault is moving. And yes, it's volcanic, because the magma is moving the fault.
