I got chills everywhere when I saw you had typed about the tremor earlier. They haven't gone away.
Yeah well, they say it's just hydrothermal tremor, meaning it is low level tremor being generated by steam (from water). But keep in mind that's what
they are assuming from the technical characteristics of the tremor analysis. What if they're wrong and it's magmatic? Huh?
The problem is, how is it that tremor, even hydrothermal tremor, has been detected? Increased heat from below. The degassing and increased heat they
are experiencing is coming from magma that is getting hotter near the surface, to cause steam that is so hot that it creates tremor. And I just dug up
cumulative seismicity records, and they are going up, up and further up, per year. In 2012 they had to change the alert level to yellow when ground
deformation was so rapid it freaked everybody out.
The critical thing to understand here is that this study is suggesting that for the type of magma that is below Flegrei, and some of that is
assumption, cause they are not entirely sure- what they are saying is that once it reaches a critical point, it sets in motion a positive feedback
loop of rock breakage and rising magma events that starts to snowball. And causes the volcano to go critical. What irks me though is that they will
continue to sit on this until the very end- and by then the fat lady will have sung before anyone even makes it to the theater.
The responsible thing to do is to start a long term relocation project, now. Before they have too much blood on their hands.
