I finally had some time this morning to look around at the different seismos to see if I could pick out any kind of trend.
First of all, here is an updated link to the bad one in the original post:
good link for PNW seismos
This is a relatively new network, and it is obvious that they are still working out many bugs. I found some stuff that I think warrants further
looking, but I am not educated enough to give an opinion on it, so I am hoping others here are!!
Take a look at these stations, being to sure to look at the 24 hr, 1 day, 2 day and three day option on all of them for comparison:
I don't think I need to point out what I'm talking about, it is very obvious. It occurs at the same time on all the station, and as you can see by
the map they are scattered around the sound. What do you think? Rush hour? The tides? I just don't know. *scratching my head*
Also of note, there were several micro quakes on Mount baker today, another just a few minutes ago. Here is a link to that seismo:
There have been several also in the other ranges, including helens and rainier. Here is a link to all those seismos:
PNW volcano seismo network
Is it unusuall? No, not really. These are actice volcanos, they have EQ. When you start seeing clusters though, you definately pay attnetiona and
the ones at baker have me looking. I don't want to see a trend there or an increase in size.
Anyways...nothing extra to add at this time. Obviously, for any monitoring the world EQ's, it has so far been a day of low level, clustered
activity....basically all around the globe. There is suposed to be a wave of geomagnetic energy headed our way compliments of the sun. Many claim
this can have an affect on the EQ's, so if this is true we should see this activity get a little stronger.
If the emerging pattern holds true, we are due for another 4-5 mag range EQ off the Oregon/WA coast today. We shall see!
