Thanks for that. Last time I looked last night, it wasn't updated yet.

Yes, it is a nice, even spread. I have seen it like that before although typically it is in clusters. Yes, I think there could be a connection with the 1.8 quake. I have certainly seen correlations between the tremors and quakes! Keep watching...the more the better.

I'm watching
The southern end of the CSZ had another hiccup today, just north of the triple junction.
The entire area is geologically fascinating...and gorgeous.

This must have been why my dogs were going off this afternoon. I know it was right around this time because I was in the middle of doing my bills...ugh. I considered looking at the seismos...but I was absorbed in balancing my accounts and with the PNSN re-doing it's site, my normal seismos are not as easy to just 'click' on.

It was less than 20 miles from my house. I didn't feel it ofcourse, it was too small...but not 'norma'l for the area.

Well I was coming here to comment and list the recent quakes from yesterday...but the 3.0 that I saw last night has completely disapeared. It was 0 depth so perhaps it was an explosion, but that would have to be one HECK of a blast to cause that large of a 'mistake'. Anyone else see it? It was located in the SW corner of the state.

All I found was this:
2.2 quake

I saw it just this morning on the www.pnsn.org... homepage, listed as an explosion with their fancy new "star" symbol; but it has disappeared from there too.
edit on 12/7/2011 by Olivine because: forgot my "it"

Yup...I have been looking at those. They are very interesting. Who ever knew we had so many explosions? However, those don't disappear. So why did this one? I tried to look at the seismos, but they were unavailable. I'll have to try again.

I was going to try and have some pictures of the lunar eclipse for you, but the darn clouds and fog ruined that idea!!! Maybe next time, just three years to wait.

I managed to get ONE picture of the lunar eclipse! It was through the fog, time-lapsed to the quality isn't that great, but at least I got one!

Hello friends!

I found this article quite interesting, as I'm sure most of you will as well.


Since the magnitude 9.1 earthquake in Sumatra in 2004, five more giant earthquakes have struck the continents ringing the Pacific Ocean. And some experts speculate that the planet has entered a period of increased seismic activity that could trigger giant earthquakes in vulnerable regions including the Pacific Northwest.

A somewhat reassuring new study suggests otherwise.

University of California researchers examined the timing of earthquakes worldwide from 1900 and found no evidence of a domino effect in which one great earthquake triggers others on distant continents. It could be random chance.

"We don't want people to assume that our conclusion means the ongoing risk is small," says study co-author Peter Shearer, a professor of geophysics at the University of California San Diego. "There is a significant risk of big earthquakes in all subduction zones." It's just that the run of very large earthquakes most likely does nothing to change the risk in distant locations, Shearer says.


Ahh but wait...


But the data is less than convincing to some experts, who think it's possible that short-term risk of a great earthquake has increased in the Northwest."There is a possibility that maybe we should be worried about this," says Oregon State University geologist Chris Goldfinger. "I definitely do not dismiss it."

Thorne Lay, a professor of geophysics at the University of California Santa Cruz, says scientists don't understand the physical processes well enough to rule out long-distance triggering of great earthquakes based on observations to date.

"One would really need to have good data in the location of each great event to see whether earlier remote large events had changed earthquake timing locally," he says. "Unfortunately, careful work has not been done in all regions of recent big events or the data are very poor due to lack of nearby seismic networks."


I'm going to let WestCoast or anyone else who would like, disect the rest of the article, which is quite interesting.

I'll definitely read though the article (great find!!!) but first I have to say that while I would like to agree with those saying there isn't evidence of remote triggering I think it rather ignorant to base this claim on only a couple hundred years of data. I don't understand how a geologist could ever make such a statement like that.

Ahh... to keep the sheeple in line, of course!


And on another note, Merry Christmas my friend!!!

Here's to a safe and happy Christmas for all my ATS friends...

Helens is feeling a bit left out. We've been paying lots and lots of attention to Rainier for the past month. Although....while this is in the helens seismic zone, it sits almost smack dab in between helens and Rainier.

I know this isn't in Washington State, but I find it interesting and is close enough to keep an eye on, or an ear out for.

Thanks for posting that link, you beat me to it!

I find it quite interesting. I may have experienced something similar about a week ago, but I am going to hold my speculation for now to see if anything pans out.

Interesting new blog on the PNSN site by John Vidale (director) about the Deep Tremors.


link to blog

I haven't gotten my hands on the full version yet, but if I do I will share it.

If you follow his provided link, then click on the "rent" it option, the full version opens.

Hmmm, it looks like he linked the PDF after reading your comment.

A bit of activity in my part of the world recently. Nothing big ofcourse, just some little guys...but they are in an interesting place:

The two at the top have my interest. At that size and depth, they may be indicators. Only time will tell.

How are your dogs?

And , more importantly, how are your "spidey senses" on this?

Stay safe, my friend!
