Just wondering if anyone other than me heard that pin drop? - anyone picking up anything anywhere else that is not showing up on my very, very yellow map?

It sure is quiet - but there have been a couple of little ones in the usual places - Cali and Alaska.

I don't think this has been posted in this thread before, although it may have been posted in ATS as I remember seeing it somewhere. Since it is specifically relevant to Earthquakes it has relevance for this thread in particular.

Chile earthquake moves plates over by 10ft


The massive magnitude 8.8 earthquake that struck the west coast of Chile last month moved the entire city of Concepcion at least 10 feet to the west, and shifted other parts of South America as far apart as the Falkland Islands and Fortaleza, Brazil. These preliminary measurements, produced from data gathered by researchers from four universities and several agencies, including geophysicists on the ground in Chile, paint a much clearer picture of the power behind this temblor, believed to be the fifth-most-powerful since instruments have been available to measure seismic shifts. Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina and across the continent from the quake's epicenter, moved about 1 inch to the west. And Chile's capital, Santiago, moved about 11 inches to the west-southwest. The cities of Valparaiso and Mendoza, Argentina, northeast of Concepcion, also moved significantly.


Well worth a read and trying to get your head round!!

I am going to post this in Volcano watch as well since I see on the right hand side of the article that the area I have been looking at below Chaiten - i.e between Chaiten and Melimayou has also shifted over. This may not be good news for the volcanoes.

I have read this and there was a thread on this that pretty much went no where being there is not a lot of report on it. With regard to this shift - this would be why I am so concerned that there have not been more quakes! Logic would have it that such a massive shift in plates (relatively speaking), would have created many more quakes than have been occurring as the earth/plates adjusts to the shift.... My fear of course it the next one - which I am surprised has not happened yet! But then we are talking mother earth and she is anything but predictable and logical! As for the volcanoes - this sort of shift must create melt? Something has to give. The volcanoes are a very big concern as well! It appears to me that many Caldera's are reacting to this shift and I am also surprised that Yellowstone has not as she usually does. - No, nothing predictable or logical.

The more I look at this the more I am having difficulty getting my head round (a) how much some areas moved and (b) the fact they moved westwards TOWARDS the subduction zone. How is that? This is moving chunks of the Andes. I note also that one area that has moved is Melimoyou, but it does not say how much.

I may be way off the mark here, so someone please tell me if I am, but that suggests to me that the potential for this to happen again, and in the very near future, is quite great. Far from releasing pressure this may have stressed things even further.

I think I said that above - my thinking it is the next one is over due and it is going to be BIG! - but, then again - as stated above - earth is not logical or predictable

I too, agree with you, on that one, and just based on cycles, not scientific evidence, this seem's to be the place for any self professed "Earthquake Empath's" if I may......

My sincere apologies if you feel I was repeating what you had said. I did not quite see it that way and it most certainly was not intended to be so.

I had been sitting in front of the computer staring at the map of South America trying to comprehend just how such a huge chunk could be moved that sort of distance. I also, and here Roald and probably several others will jump on me, am not completely convinced by subduction as a theory. But subduction is just that, a theory,it has not actually been proven. It seems reason able, but there are other possibilities, and anyway it was never even heard of when I was at school. Heavens we had only just got it into our heads that the earth is not flat.

If subduction is right, why did the plates move west?

Puterman, no, my apologies to you. I get wrapped up in all the millions things that go through my mind and most times when I type, I only type a fraction of the thought - because there is to much there. I tend to forget when I do this that people don't grasp the whole thought that is clear in my mind - but it is good that I have you to put the whole thought out in writing :-) - So, my apologies.

I think we should see if subduction is or is not the case. For this we would need to find out and measure if on the west side of the Nazca plate has moved or if it is now small - same thing goes for for the South American plate - is it still in the same position on it's right side before the quake? We also need to look at the Cocos & Caribbean Plate - to see the effect of them - if in all we have same plate dimentions then we can rule out subduction. Now then if in fact subduction has occurred we need to determine where. - which plate lost real estate - and where. - I believe this would be the first stepping stones to figure out exactly what is going on here - and what may happen next. And Something of this magnetude has got to give somewhere and somewhere soon

Hi everyone. We are Steve and Sherry. The United States Geological Survey has a service anyone can sign up for. Basically it is:

Earthquake notification service that can be customizable. I recieve notification of any quake in the world that registers as a M6.0 or higher. You can change the magnitude to 2.0 if you like however you will recieve too many each day as we have "micro-quakes" all the time. And yes in my view these quakes are increasing. I started with Haiti which of course killed an approx. 220,000 people in January, 2010.
