do we have a tally of the recent big ones?

be curious to see them all on one map(with dates), to see if there are patterns...

Looks like there could possibly be a giant undersea volcano ready to blow at any minute. Doesn't this look like a build up to an eruption? Or is it just me?

Anyone want to place bets on some new Volcano ~appearing~ or the plate crumbling?

Uh yep, equake is a rocking every couple of minutes.

Seeing lot of 5.x's and 6.x's rolling by.

I love equake only thing is that I have to re-maximize my window every time, kinda annoying but worth it for the instant info.

Awesome addon.

Is there a known one in the area?

EDIT: Volcano that is.

To be honest I have no idea.. but I have a feeling in a few weeks or less there will be. But its just a guess, so don't buy stock in it.

Well it's a good educated guess.

I was watching Discovery the other day and they were doing a show on volcanoes, very interesting stuff to, and how quakes occur more frequent before eruptions. It's as good a theory as any.

This is fascinating, and scary at the same time. I've been watching the magnitudes and areas of quakes for months, just out of curiosity, and this seems unusual to me. But then I have no education in this area.

I wonder what will it take for the folks who say that this is normal to say that things aren't normal? I guess time will tell.

or any underwater calderas? (super volcanoes) for that matter? something we wouldn't even really be paying much attention to like yellowstone? (sorry, very speculative on my part)

Looking at the plate and faults on Google Earth it looks like a big craggy Caldera...

Hmmm...

Oh yeah a giant Caldera. It will crack open and sea water will rush in, turn to steam, and BOOM!

Galactic cosmic rays hit 50-year high




Galactic cosmic rays have just hit a Space Age high, new data from a NASA spacecraft indicates.

"In 2009, cosmic ray intensities have increased 19 percent beyond anything we've seen in the past 50 years," said Richard Mewaldt of Caltech. "The increase is significant, and it could mean we need to re-think how much radiation shielding astronauts take with them on deep-space missions."

The surge, which poses no threat to Earth, was detected by NASA's ACE (Advanced Composition Explorer) spacecraft.

www.msnbc.msn.com...

NASA says these pose no threat to earth...then how do they explain the abnormally high level of volcanic activity in recent years...

The high energy particles that make it through the sun's and then earth's magnetic field represent very small mass going at a high rate of speed. To those particles you look like a very loosely organized bunch of atoms. The single largest thing you contain by far is empty space. Even it they hit you, which they do, you don't even feel it though it may kill a cell on rare occasion or perhaps distort it in someway causing a cancer cell. More than likely, however, they just pass through without hitting anything.

When it comes to the planet, there is no effect on plate tectonics from this type of radiation with regard to a physics point of view that I could see. I would put your mind at ease over this one and chalk it up to accumulated stresses as the most likely cause.
