So I came across a really interesting article today:


LINK to article
I felt it worthy of it's own thread, so I started one HERE

Ties in well with what I was speculating here with the original OP, I think!

I just came across this great webpage for quake watchers in PNW. It has interactive quake lists, as well as links to tall the seismos! Here is the LINK

Also, here is the latest update on the deep tremor situation:


Aug 14, 2010 - Tremor continues as before with a hint it is bifurcating into a cluster southwest of where it started (now its just east of Shelton) and then a more dispersed patch moving into the eastern Olympic Mountains. The northern edge of this patch is very near the location of our BS array. There is a summary map from the wech-o-meter showing the first week's progression of tremor color coded by time.

The other volcanoes have been quite for the past week.

I am still extremely curious to see what happens with the deep tremors. I actually pulled out some info last night on the geological history of the Cascades and our subduction zone. I didn't realize that about 5 to 7 million years ago, a small portion on the North end of the Juan de Fuca Plate, now called the Explorer plate, broke off. For an unknown reason, this caused the cascades to become active again and the current ranges to rise.

Link to wonderful article with diagrams at WA State Edu

*****THEORY WARNING****

It just further emphasizes our not-so-clear understanding at the forces at work underneath us. I think the geologic history of the explorer plate could give creadance to my OP. IF there was a large magma chamber under Washington State feeding our volcanoes...then wouldn't it go to reason that when the Explorer plate shifted and broke free, it perhaps is what 'fed' or created the chamber? If that event is what led to the magmatism of the current Cascade Range, then obviously the shift involved magma flow somehow. I think it stands to reason then, that any current off-shore activity could ALSO have some sort of magmatic affect on the cascades...such as the recent rash of 4.0-5.0 quakes off the Oregon Coast (Juan de Fuca Plate) and Vancouver Island (Explorer Plate).

***END OF THEORY WARNING***

Just thinkin out loud.

I like your theory, but I am no expert, still learning and it seems there is a lot to study and absorb.

westcoast, I always enjoy the posts about your dog, animals do know when something is happening.

I have been traveling around the NW this summer with my cat, and I noticed that he tends to meow when were are near volcanoes, he is usually very quiet. He starts meowing every time we go through Sisters, OR, or up to Mount Hood, and he also does not like it near Yakima for some reason. Mt. Baker? This is a new thing, and the rest of the time during car trips he is silent.

Lately every so often, he will face east and start meowing, and I realized he might be facing Mt. Hood. Could be something else altogether, but he is usually not that noisy and agitated.

I thing I might try keep a log and see anything is happening at Mt. Hood when he does this. Not very scientific, but animals can hear and feel things we do not.

I completely agree with you about animals. They hear and sense so much more than we do. My dogs have been a little on edge the last couple of days, but it has also been around 90 degrees, so it's hard to say.

I swear this afternoon when I was out shopping, I felt the pressure change and my ears popped as if I were driving over the pass. Very odd sensation.

As for Yakima, I grew up there. Not too much going on, but I did experience my first quake there. Small, but very close and near the surface so dramatic none-the-less. The closest volcano is St. Helens. Other than that, there is a fault not too far from there near Hanford that has been quite active the past year or so.

Okay, in trying to keep up with the activity going on here, I am ending up cross-posting. I try and avoid doing that, but This deep tremor stuff is big news so I am trying to keep it where those who are intereted will see it. It is most definately Washington State news, but is also quake news so I am posting on the quake thread. I began a thread dedicated to it also, because It would quickly get buried in the Quakewatch thread and this one too. Anyways, just want to explain why I am updating in more than one area....I want my friends input and I want to keep as many people informed as possible!

There was a moderate quake today off vancouver island:

If you take a look at the map link provided at the site, you will see that the quake sits right on the fault line. That happens to be part of the explorer plate...the same one that caused the recent Cascadia rise which began 5-7 million years ago.

SO...if I try to tie this into my magma chamber theory, it would make sense for that area to become active right now, during this deep tremor period.

My friend AnnMarie brought up a very good point, that perhaps the 7.9 Alaska quake of 2002 might have something to do with triggering the deep tremors?

I any of this holds any water, I would expect to see continued seismic activity along ANY of the faults, but especially the Eplorer. Maybe, as the tremor moves further north, there could be a larger event triggered by it. IF the event were on the Explorer fault/plate and it was big enough, I will be watching the mountains VERY closely. We are soooooooo long overdue for a big release, AND some serious volcanic activity that this build up/slip that's going on right now is just down-right scary.

Most recent update on the Deep tremors:


Aug 17, 2010 - There seems to have been a bit of a lull in tremor amplitude over much of the last day compared to the previous several days when it was roaring. There is a summary envelop plot of the first 10 days of this ETS that shows the daily fluctuations and recent lull. The northern edge of the tremor is now north of the Olympics coast and there is a southern bunch of tremor clearly separated from the rest, south of Olympia.

Thank you Muzzy! I came across this same paper some time ago and re-read just the other night to re-fresh my memory after all the stuff that's been happening. It's a great paper!

Here is the latest update on the deep tremor:


Aug 19, 2010 - The tremor continues to slowly move north with the leading edge in the middle of the Straits. On the spectrograms it appears to be getting weaker but that is probably only because the best stations for seeing it without cultural noise are to the south (HDW and DOSE). It is now weakly but clearly seen on MCW and SNB. The leading edge of it should be crossing into Canada in about two days. Tomorrow we will have completed three full service runs of all 8 AofA arrays. Preliminary checks of the data using a couple of small local earthquakes for waveform comparisons indicate that the Texans are doing well. Today a switch was made in crew. Mario La Rocca from Osservatori Vesuviano left after five days of great work to be replaced by the big boss himself, John Vidale.

They are still a day behind and never gave one for the 18th. It seems to be picking up again. 456 quakes detected in ONE day on the 19th!!!

So here is the latest update for the 20th:


Aug 20, 2010 - Watch out Candians, the tremor is now on your door step. Several wech-o-meter locations this evening are just outside Victoria harbor. By tomorrow Dr. "ETS" Dragert will have them under his garage.


LINK

Here is the latest tremor map, showing the located tremors for the 20th. There are 360 of them, now about 40 miles south of the canadian border (as of yesterday)...almost directly East of my location by about 20-39 miles.

Link to interactive tremor map


Acutal earthquakes continue to rattle around our State today, with two new ones so far, as well as a 3.6 in neighboring Idao. They don't see too many of those in any given year.

THIS is my favorite EQ map now for the PNW. It is an interactive quake map, showing all the recent quakes that you can click on for info, and then you can overlay whatever seismo stations you want and then go to it. (very cool)

By looking at the above map, you can clearly see that this past week there has been a cluster of small quakes over top of the deep tremors.

Also, I think it is important to note how the volcanos have been doing this week, since my hypothosis is directly linked to them. Here is a run-down:

Mt. Saint helens:

10/08/14 13:00:50 46.20N 122.17W 0.0-0.6 AD
10/08/16 21:15:01 46.19N 122.18W 0.0-0.5 AB
10/08/17 23:25:17 46.19N 122.18W 1.1 2.2 AA
10/08/18 23:05:27 46.19N 122.17W 0.0-0.6 AC
10/08/20 07:22:33 46.19N 122.18W 0.0-0.8 BA
10/08/20 08:53:25 46.20N 122.17W 0.0-0.3 AD

LINK

Now I think it is really interesting to note that Helen's is the ONLY one with ANY activity listed for this past week. Hood, which has been very rumbly lately hasn't had any quakes since August 12th...Then Rainier and Baker have been silent since August 4th. I wonder. (uh-oh, a dangerous thing)

Keep in mind that the Deep Tremor started on August 8th. Helen's is the only volcano showing any activity on and just before:

10/08/07 02:15:25 46.19N 122.18W 1.0 1.6 AA
10/08/07 07:28:42 46.20N 122.18W 3.7-0.2 AC
10/08/07 08:37:48 46.20N 122.18W 3.9-0.3 AA
10/08/07 22:37:40 46.19N 122.18W 0.3 1.0 AC
10/08/08 00:35:21 46.19N 122.18W 0.0-0.6 AA


GIven Mt. Saint Helen's location in relation to where the deep tremors started....I think it would stand to reason that if this has anything to do with Magma migration, it WOULD be the one to react the most. Make sense?

Just to throw a theory out there. Just recently, solar cycle 24 got more active with a CME that produced Northern lights to the Northern United Sates. It appears every time there is a significant sloar storm hitiing the earth, the earth gets a little unstable and shakes. I noticed on the reporting log of the deep tremors that the update activity has increased in posts in the past few weeks.

I certainly agree that solar activity can have an affect on us.

The history of the deep tremors is that it seems to cycle every 14-15 months. it is unknown why. It's suspected to be connected to water cycles...which I think would make it safe say there may be a lunar connection too.


In my last post I talked about Helens. There was just another small quake there:

Here is the most recent report from pnsn. seems like it's still acting strange:


Aug 21, 2010 - The main ETS tremor is now located in the middle of the Straits of Juan de Fuca with the leading edge under Victoria. The Canadians must be happy now. There also continues to be a separate persistent patch of tremor near Olympia that seems to be slowly spreading south with its leading edge near Centralia. Do we have a double ETS this time? Time will tell.

No further updates on the tremors....but I just noticed something that I have to share. It may be relevant.

As most of you know, there is a chain volcanoes (all part of the cascade range) that spreads in a North to South direction, from just south of the Canadian border down to California, with the greatest concentration being in Washington State.

I typically review the seismos and quake activity for these on a daily basis. Over the years, I have discovered which are the most active, and what is 'normal', etc. I have also learned which seismos are glichy, which have more wind noise, etc. Some other ATS members have also helped me understand what the different signals might mean...such as ice breaking, machine maintenance, distant quake waves and the such.

NOW...one of the volcanoes that doesn't see many quakes in a given year are the three sisters. HERE is the info page about her on the PNSN website. The three sisters are located in central Oregon, on the West side. If you look at THIS map and select the volcano seismos, you will see the two for her in that location.

WELL...there has been only one recorded quake there this year, in January. I don't normally click on the seismo for her daily, because it's usually 'flat-lined'. Nada. Nothing to see. I normally look once or twice a month just to make sure I didn't miss anything. I quite surprised today when I saw THIS. You can get to this seismo also by clicking on the red circle on the other linked map.

I at first thought it must be a mechanical problem or something. Perhaps a storm? so I went back through the past few days and found even stronger signals occuring on and off. Hmmmm.....still not convinced, I went to the OTHER siesmo on another part of the mountain and it's even worse! The closest town is Bend Oregon. The forcast in clear skies and sun today and the next week.

The deep tremor activity has picked up in the past 48 hours. Over 600 recorded on THIS map for the 21st alone!!! As you can see, the deep tremors are occuring both above and below the Three Sisters.

So...what say you???

Had a quick read of those 3 Sisters links.


They mention uplift of 1" per year.

Have you seen any GPS data about height changes or directional movement around the Olympia Peninsula/Puget Sound area


We had a swarm of slow quakes on the other side of the mountains where I live back in 2004 that is believed caused us here on the West coast to stop moving West by 10mm a year (was 25mm now is 15mm).
Our subduction is East to West opposite of the US West Coast

That is an excellent question!

I know that measuring movement is part of the Deep Tremor Array analysis. Problem, is that while I see evidence of measuring, I have yet to find any recent results. You have reminded me about this though...so off I go to look!

AHHHHHH
Having a holy crap moment here.

I just found an article from the PNSN network dated 2004 about a swarm at the three sisters. Here is an snippet:


At approximately 10 a.m. yesterday (Tuesday, March 23), an ongoing swarm of small earthquakes began in the Three Sisters volcanic center in the central Oregon Cascade Range. This activity poses no immediate threat to the public. As of this morning, the regional seismic network has detected approximately 100 earthquakes ranging in magnitude up to about 1.5. The rate of earthquakes peaked late yesterday and appears to be declining slowly. The earthquakes are occurring in the northeast part of an area centered 5 kilometers (3 miles) west of South Sister volcano in which the ground has been uplifted by as much as 25 cm (about 10 inches) since late 1997. On the basis of multiple lines of evidence, scientists infer that the cause of the uplift is the continuing intrusion of a modest volume of magma (molten rock). The magma appears to be accumulating at a depth of about 7 kilometers (4 miles) below the ground surface and now measures about 40 million cubic meters (about 50 million cubic yards) in volume. Until yesterday, only a few earthquakes have accompanied this process, but scientists have expected that swarms of small earthquakes such as the present one would eventually accompany the uplift. The most likely cause of the earthquakes is small amounts of slippage on faults as the Earth's crust adjusts to the slow ground deformation of the past 7 years. Heat and gases related to the magmatic intrusion have probably caused increases in fluid pressure deep underground, which also helps to trigger minor faulting events


Please note this part especially:The magma appears to be accumulating at a depth of about 7 kilometers (4 miles) below the ground surface and now measures about 40 million cubic meters (about 50 million cubic yards) in volume

Link to whole article and info

The article also states:


The processes that have been causing the uplift over the past seven years could eventually lead to shallower intrusion of magma or even to a volcanic eruption; however, both are unlikely without significantly more intense precursory activity



This all leads me to greater concern that the seismic activity I linked previously could actually BE harmonic tremor. There, I said the HT word.


I would think, though, the the scientists would obviously be ALL over this. I can't find anything regarding it. So I'm hoping this means it is nothing to worry about and I am worrying over nothing at all. BUT....

The last time the three sister errupted was about 2000 years ago so the swarm in 2004 was a big deal because it is linked to the magmatic intrusion and 10 inch uplift since 1997. I get the impression it has been a matter of waiting for the next phase ever since. Could this be it? It would make sense to me that it may happen in concurance with the deep tremor, especially if my theory of magmatic movement/chamber holds any water!

I live in WA and I swear I can sometimes feel the heat rising through the ground and warming my house. It`s kind of nice. And it`s all been there quite a long time. I live in a valley, so I`m probably closest to the actual magma. I actually dream of the day that it opens up and takes me into it`s sweet warm embrace. Or the day I am visiting Ocean Shores in Grays Harbor and a volcanic tsunami rips across the beach, roaring towards me as I stand on the balcony of my beachfront hotel room... SURF`S UP! Those sounds you are hearing? A result of HAARP. They want to "help along" mother nature into her process...well not HER process. But A Process. The PNW is a great place to expiriment on how to drop 10`s of millions of cubic feet of Earth into a pool of magma, and be able to send a tsunami across the pacific at the same time. Hey, they can`t study his birth records from Hawaii anymore if... there is no more Hawaii!! They`ve been wantin to take out the pNW for quite a while. First of all, it makes them jealous that we have a state called washington, as if we feel that we run the country...cant be havin people thinkin that way now can we? The pnw has been known for a long time as a place of "free thinkers". Many such people who have either lived or been born here have created a lot of positive change in the world. My mom once met the mother of Jimmy Hendrix... or was it his father? TBC...

...kurt cobain, they couldn`t wait for the magma to take him away. Alternative music pretty much started here...is that an indicator as well for Alternative thinking? Bruce Lee and Brandon Lee are both buried here. Wonder what happen to them? I could go on, but it`s pretty much redundant idea. Maybe when the whole west coast gets terrorized by mother nature, the rest of the US will see how angry God becomes when states try to pursue legalized marijuana. Yeah we have always been rebels, just a little more sophisticated than southern rebels... we got our starbucks coffee and microsoft computers to help us, haha... I remember back in the late 90`s I think it was when a town in northwest wa tried to "seceed"from the union, just like the south in the civil war era. They had printed their own money and everything. I`m pretty sure there are a good number of healthy militias around the pnw as well, there is a lot of open space and mountains, etc. and I`ve seen a few different trucks with the militia name on the side of the truck and on the back window with bumper stickers, etc. So I know they are around here, just mainly in the far north where most of the wilderness is besides the mountainous regions, whioch I am sure they are all familiar with as well. Quick thought: could it be that animals born here wouldn`t react to the vibrations if they were occuring regularly? But animals visiting from less active areas wopuld be more sensitive?

So here is the latest update for the 20th:


Aug 20, 2010 - Watch out Candians, the tremor is now on your door step. Several wech-o-meter locations this evening are just outside Victoria harbor. By tomorrow Dr. "ETS" Dragert will have them under his garage.

Here is the latest tremor map, showing the located tremors for the 20th. There are 360 of them, now about 40 miles south of the canadian border (as of yesterday)...almost directly East of my location by about 20-39 miles.

Link to interactive tremor map


Acutal earthquakes continue to rattle around our State today, with two new ones so far, as well as a 3.6 in neighboring Idao. They don't see too many of those in any given year.

TIt is an interactive quake map, showing all the recent quakes that you can click on for info, and then you can overlay whatever seismo stations you want and then go to it. (very cool)

By looking at the above map, you can clearly see that this past week there has been a cluster of small quakes over top of the deep tremors.

Also, I think it is important to note how the volcanos have been doing this week, since my hypothosis is directly linked to them. Here is a run-down:

Mt. Saint helens:

10/08/14 13:00:50 46.20N 122.17W 0.0-0.6 AD
10/08/16 21:15:01 46.19N 122.18W 0.0-0.5 AB
10/08/17 23:25:17 46.19N 122.18W 1.1 2.2 AA
10/08/18 23:05:27 46.19N 122.17W 0.0-0.6 AC
10/08/20 07:22:33 46.19N 122.18W 0.0-0.8 BA
10/08/20 08:53:25 46.20N 122.17W 0.0-0.3 AD

[url=http://www.pnsn.org/INFO_GENERAL/volcanoes.html]LINK


Now I think it is really interesting to note that Helen's is the ONLY one with ANY activity listed for this past week. Hood, which has been very rumbly lately hasn't had any quakes since August 12th...Then Rainier and Baker have been silent since August 4th. I wonder. (uh-oh, a dangerous thing)

Keep in mind that the Deep Tremor started on August 8th. Helen's is the only volcano showing any activity on and just before:

10/08/07 02:15:25 46.19N 122.18W 1.0 1.6 AA
10/08/07 07:28:42 46.20N 122.18W 3.7-0.2 AC
10/08/07 08:37:48 46.20N 122.18W 3.9-0.3 AA
10/08/07 22:37:40 46.19N 122.18W 0.3 1.0 AC
10/08/08 00:35:21 46.19N 122.18W 0.0-0.6 AA


GIven Mt. Saint Helen's location in relation to where the deep tremors started....I think it would stand to reason that if this has anything to do with Magma migration, it WOULD be the one to react the most. Make sense?




Thank you for that link. That's a good site.
