I've been keeping up with thread and the question had come up about if any of these movements could be related to the resent activities in Indonesia.

www.newscientist.com...

Asian quake could trigger California's big one


IT'S a kind of geological butterfly effect. Fenglin Niu of Rice University in Houston, Texas, and colleagues believe they have found two clear cases where remote events weakened the San Andreas fault near Parkfield, California. The finding suggests powerful earthquakes - like the one that has just hit Sumatra - may trigger further quakes worldwide.


I think that it would only make common sense that they would be related. Not to start any fear mongering with this news, I'll just stay positive by thinking that it's just nature trying to balance itself out. Let's just hope that it will be slow and easy.

Nice find!


That was my thought as well...a directed ~blast~ from that subduction SW of Samoa...

CI.CWC is showing long period 200 microsecond/sec waves from the 7.8 Vanuatu earthquake, not sure if they are real since the seismometer has been reported to be malfunctioning, though.

a 247.91 just came in...

With the longer waves I'm guessing s/p waves...

But it appears to be in phase today...we'll see huh?

No, it collapsed from the 8.0 Samoa earthquake from last week.
Not this one.

Watching Mammoth, Lone Pine, and Big Bear, Ca. in GEE, it looks like another big set of P waves just came through.... another sizable aftershock I'm guessing. Just about 5:00 PST

P & S waves are the leading and trailing shockwaves that quakes generate...

they move at different speeds from the focal point...

Different layers and earth types affect how fast or slow they travel...

And now we're gettin closer...

~
An earthquake in the Sierra - Nevada Fault system in March 1872, killed 27 people at Lone Pine and destroyed 52 of 59 adobe houses. Near Owens Lake, numerous depressions formed between cracks in the earth. One area 200 to 300 feet wide sank 20 to 30 feet; several long, narrow ponds formed. Thousands of aftershocks, some severe, appear to have occurred.
