There's a fault line passing through the middle of Lake Bajkal. Quakes are common there. Click my link to EMSC in my previous post. Click on maps, and see the fault line.



edit to add a link to a map: Here. And it was a 6.3, not a 9.

technically you mentioned 2 different scales - Richter is a Magnitude scale whilst the MSK is an intensity scale - the USA themselves use the Modified Mercalli scale and Richter scale when describing erthquakes

so a 9 on the Richter scale would be felt around the world , a 9 on the MSK scale (similar to a 9 on the MM scale) isn`t quite as devastating

Did you see what I posted about scales, the Russians said it was a 9. I think what may have happened is that the Russians were referencing their scale, which is different than the Richter scale. A 6.3 on our scale would be around an 8 or 9 on their scale.

Yup, I saw that. Somebody must have mixed up the scales, since the article says "9 on the Richter". Strong quake, but not major or great...

Europe uses another scale called the European Macroseismic Scale , which itself is based upon the MSK which itself is based upon the Mercalli scale.



The scale quantifies the effects of an earthquake on the Earth's surface, humans, objects of nature, and man-made structures on a scale of I through XII, with I denoting a weak earthquake and XII one that causes almost complete destruction.


as opposed to the Richter scale which quantifies the energy released

I can't help but notice the coincidence that as our tensions rise with Russia, they just happen to suffer a huge quake. A HAARP shot across the bow?

Just crazy nonsense, but I will admit that my mind went there.




thats what i thought too... same thing happened when tension rose with China...

Hehehe, as long as we're speculating, the quake was around 100-120 KMs away from Tunguska - as the crow flies.
Seriously though, thank you for pointing out the difference between scales. I learn something new every day!

Could very well have been a slap down. The problem with Haarp is everyone knows where its at and how perfect the array has to be. Its a pretty fragile weapon to try much with it.

Personally, I don't think it was an act of HAARP. I still believe that when earthquakes keep happening at a depth of: 10km (6.2mi) that there might be some evidence of HAARP, but who's to say. It's just really random that this number keeps popping up all across the globe.

Living in Cali, when I first saw 9 on the richter mentioned, it piqued my interest. Glad to read that it was of a lesser magnitude.

Man are there some deep rabbit holes around here.
The HAARP story is pretty interesting to me considering all of the unknowns and the words like radio frequency, high voltage and electromagnetism. I kept expecting John Hutchinson's name to come up somewhere in the various links I visited(maybe it woulda been on my next click had I kept going).

Anyways...yeah, who knows, right?

I do have a question for some of you who are no doubt smarter than myself. As much as I'd love to deny ignorance, I have to get outside.

Can anyone tell me if these graphs are fishy or if it's just the result of some being in more remote locations and, thus, being less prone to the drone of electronic interference around major cities in Alaska?

Magnetometer Chain

Check all stations(minus Trapper Creek as it has no info), all traces for the last month with a 500 nT plot scale.

To me, it looks the "geomagnetic storminess" as they call it, is either greater at the HAARP facility, or maybe it is just better able to take these readings due to it's isolation?

Cheers everyone and have a nice day.

If the earth has the magnetic poles shifting, that could account for more earthquakes and volcanos.

Well I hope Russia would be ready for a magnitude 9 temblor. I think Medvedev spoke too soon about them being ready for "anything" On a second thought, doesn't it now move on to other parts of the world. It seems like it does, so get ready for a very strong quake or several in other parts of the world!

Maybe I am remembering something else, but is this region not known to have some rather mysterious and quite ancient ruins?

I remember there being this legend of a castle beneath a lake somewhere in Russia, something along the lines of Avalon or somesuch. I'm pretty sure it was Baikal.

Sounds like something might be waking up?

The power of earthquakes is 'exponential' A nine would be quite the dickens. I pity anyone who lived or not thru that. A HAARP shot across the bow. Obviously highly rated response my friend. Entirely possible, and probable. In a low populated area, for effect. [edit on 8/28/2008 by jpm1602]

I would not put it past them to use HARRP to send a message to Russia back down or we will hit you where it hurt's,but the bear is strong and it will only make them really ticked off if it was HARRP.

With every thing going on in our world we are seeing some troubling times

Chernobyl powered there own HAARP. I don't think our extrastellar space symbios is not going to go very well.

Under pressure. I found it interesting the reps want to deliver nasa shuttles beyond 2010. Because our ties with Russia are so tenuous.

from what i've read, russia's scalar capacity makes haarp look like child's play. ive read that they have been working on this tech. for decades, while nobody else could make it work.

Earthquakes alone do very little damage to people, even if it is a 9. Deaths are usually caused by buildings collapsing, damaged infrastructure and fire/ disease as secondary damage. Russia is large and considerably baron, so its no surprise the quake went with no real damage.

Definitely HAARP no doubt about it!
