Actually, you know whats scarier than my last post, I just noticed that Chile area, hasn't burped or belched in the last 2 hrs or so, not even a wiggle larger than 4.5 mag, seem's too quiet for an area that has given us what we've had in the last few days.

Great Map and Thank You! I think if I were on the coast of Northern CA and up the coast, Alaska, Russia, HI, I would definitely be packing just in case she decides to let loose. I would also be packing for a short vacation and be leaving right about now. I have been saying this here and Yellowstone now for about 2 months - we talked about it. I know this is and has been on the top of most people in the knows mind because of the locked plate - but now IMO it really appears ready. Alaska has still not responded and while we did have minor activity today at standard locations, the only place IMO that lit up like a Christmas tree was CA. In addition, the fact that we are having problems with GEE and PBO and USGS within the last few days, makes me wonder what They are thinking as well. -Your thoughts here?

Nope, I think it was this one, which would be almost on top of that webicorder, which is why it is so large, 14 miles away....

It look's like a lot of pressure is building up on that corner of the plate boundry, right near Eureka, Ca. That seems to be where all the activity is as of late. I'm guessing that could be a slip point, or something. Not a Geologist, so speculating loudly is all.....hope i'm wrong

This is what those sqiggly little lines should not look like - near CA quakes - is there a volcano in the area?? Looks like she'd be ready to blow

lol - my daughter (16) just looked over my shoulder and said - mom, that's not suppose to look like that - guess I'm rubbing off on her

This is the area, it's right where I thought pressure was building up, and the same area that is in putermans map

I don't know how I got that little guy in there - and I don't see how to take him out - it looks fine to me in the typing room - oh well - other things to worry about

[edit on 4-3-2010 by Anmarie96] - better link to the plates

Probably off topic but I suspect the little guy was in there because the url had
in it. OK you say what was that that made it do it?

colon P

You need to wrap the url like this (using curly braces but you ned to use square ones)

Words describing the item

Your link above would look like this Jolly good plate maps

Multiple 6.3+ aftershocks in Chile

OK, the area of the JdF plate in N. Cal we have been looking at is interesting. Going back through the data for the past 365 days, on no one day were there more than 5 quakes in a day. The magnitude of the quakes is generally under 3.0 with just two 4.0+

Then on Jan 10th this year something happened. There was a 6.9 and the area rattled all the rest of that day clocking up 44 quakes. Strange how the papers and ATS were not full of "OMG 6.9 the world is ending". Actually since it was only 29Km deep I am a bit surprised we did not hear about it.



There were only 7 on the 11th and then the area was back to normal until the isolated 5.9 on the 4th Feb. I just thought this huge spike was interesting.

I looked at the site you posted and went a little farther, if you look at this page quake.usgs.gov...
it explains those squiggly lines. Very interesting!

No, one. Deep too so doubt if it will do too much harm. Mmm, not so good. It is in an uninhabited area as such but only 20 miles from a geothermal springs area - Chile version of Yellowstone?

Your right but the depth was 105 KM but it was still a 6.3 must of been a massive earthquake to cause a 6.3 to be detected all the way on the surface

You sure that one was turned on!!


As to the first one "OMG The world is ending. Stick your head in the sand"

I am afraid they are still all squiggly lines to me. I prefer to listen to them.
