There was just a mini-swarm a few hours ago. Nothing to get excited about when you really think about it. Of course I'm no expert, but I'd like to
think I'm recognizing the different signatures. I said on Quake Watch that it may be hydro-thermal. thud
Water on the brain again. And some loose wires. I checked the deformation and there is most definately subsidence. This makes me think I might be
wrong about the recent Madison Plateau quakes are recharging events. But if this were the case wouldn't it be rising again. Maybe they're just small
injections. or.. whatever
The main point is the fact that the crust is settling down. This means there is a downward pressure, and therefore, something will be squeezed. What?
Well, the thing that lay between the magma chamber and the surface is a very complex network of pipes. This would be the aquifer and the geyser
system. Once the magma chamber becomes more stable after the deflation due to the swarms in January 2010, it will start to once again apply more
upward pressure. Maybe there are injections into the chamber which then squeeze the aquifer, which would then shoot some water upward. It may be a
blast from below.
I was just about to stop watching the squiggly lines. It looked quiet. But there was one little pop. Which made me wait around longer. So, maybe you
keep an eye on her tonight. It was probably a leftover. But who knows?
