Strong 'gas smell' coming from “OFF THE COAST" and now being smelled here in Los Angeles were i live. I need everybody who is willing to report on there areas who are smelling this gas. May be "Hydrogen Sulfide gas, which is directly associated with volcanism, and tectonic"

I am a truckdriver, and right now am in Ontario, CA. If I smell anything this far from the coast I'll be sure to report.

In the uk about this time of year the ocean produces a horrid smell, the fishermen call it GullyWater. Its all the growth from the previous year thats died and rotted, it stinks, and it happens every year.
Could gully water be what people are smelling?

I believe what you are smelling is a natural release of methane from the bottom of the ocean...
Though the natural gas is odorless alone, it is often mixed with other sulfurous gases which can cause a nasty smell.
This can be caused by small movements in the plates which are not big enough to even be earth quakes but release the gas none the less...
I believe the same can be caused by plankton and algae blooms caused by changes in currents and temperature changes...

Where do you live? I saw on the news this morning that Standard Oil, I think, or some refineries were burning their torches today, to burn off excess gasses. They named those gasses, but I wasn't really paying attention. I grew up a block from Standard Oil in the El Segundo/Manhattan Beach area, near Rosecrans, and remember the odor from my childhood.

Hopefully, that's all it is.

I holding is nothing serious (just some sort of manmade burnoff or cleansing process, but you might want to search for the ATS "QuakeWatch 2016"'thread. There are incredibly knowledgable posters who routinely update on seismic occurrences (or possible precursors like gas release from the ocean) 24-7-366.

They might give some explanation (or already be discussing/monitoring same).

Looks like we will just have to wait and see what happens and how this gets explained by the officials.

They won't want to panic people and have nothing happen.

Looking at the Buoy Data Page.

No buoy's alerting to any water displacement

Is it a rotten egg smell? That is hydrogen sulfide.
Natural gas has no smell.

Methane is more or less odorless. Mercaptan is added to natural gas to give it that gas odor.

As far as I know, Hydrogen Sulfide doesn't smell, because it permanently damages your olfactory nerves, so your sense of smell is effected. Having worked in one of Joe Arpaio's jails for a very short time (which are built atop landfills, lower Buckeye at least) I have been so effected in that regard.

Hydrogen Sulphide / Sulfide ha s a very characteristic smell, like rotten eggs. But it does affect the olfactory sense and after a while a person can no longer smell it. (The effect is not usually permanent.) It's a very toxic gas and deadly in high concentrations. One reason it's so dangerous is because if people are exposed to it and don't know about its effects on their sense of smell, they can wrongly believe the gas has gone away, when the opposite may be true.

Also, if people are exposed to high concentrations of the gas, their sense of smell can be lost instantly. In this situation it is even more dangerous. Very high concentrations can quickly cause shock, convulsions, unconsciousness, coma and eventually death, with the first effects being felt after only a few breaths.
