StealthyKat, the faulted (and possibly lava beds) were formed millions of years ago. For lava to be extruded from a volcano, there has to be an
eruption (either violent or the less violent continuous flow type). At the moment I have not seen any seismic data/ sections or heard of reported
seismic activities to suggest active volcanic activities. The exposed rock outcrops is the first I have seen and it does make geological sense now
what is happening here. But for hot lava volcanic activities (real magma lava), I think the USGS would have been alerting us already (hope I am right
on this). But the seismic geophone (seismic reader you called it) evidence is intriguing. If BP is planting "seabed geophones" on the seabed, then I
would really think we are in very serious trouble for BP to be monitoring for seismic activities here. From what I had read, the Gulf is supposed to
be dormant and not tectonically active. I am not saying it isn't since we cannot be sure from the blurred picture or it could be just a piece or part
of the "grouting equipment" left in place.
But you are right on the "red hot burning" blobs on the seabed and one or two flying around. Instead of "burning lava" I would like to suggest
"burning tar balls" or chunks of asphalts that had been flung into the water column, got heated up by the explosion or burning methane and started
Then it starts to make sense of all these "new observations" I had been seeing for the first time. Thanks to all of you. Like I said before if we
look at things in isolation, we are more likely to "mis-interpret". We need a geological framework to correctly bind all the small pieces of this big
BP disaster jigsaw puzzle. BP is definitely not helping with all these lies and deception.
