So let me get this straight.
Mt St. Helens is POSSIBLY going to erupt with 100% PROBABILITY and the fact that it has not yet is to do with the complicated mathematics.
Now forgetting about the ones under Mag 1.0 St Helens has had 60 quakes in the last 400 days, the largest of which was Mag 2.9
The cumulative plot for Mount St Helens over that past 365 days looks like this.
This is a straight linear of the magnitude for the past 365 days
Unless this changes dramatically I don't see this as a potential erupter just yet, and anyway Mother Nature flunked Maths. She tends to work more on
non-mathematical Chaos theory when it comes to volcanoes!!
Gee, I was not going to say it but that site - International Volcano Research Centre - hurts my eyes. They claim to have a dozen or more 'awards'
one of which says that "you have now mastered web design". It is almost, but not quite, ranking top in the "Most Appalling Web Site" awards that
we run privately. (Somehow I don't think they would be interested in that one). Rank amateur site that should never have been awarded anything.
