I actually watched a video that showed what a land slide could do and instead of using Tsunami they used Huge Wave that would come to the East coast of North America. Its possible imo.

M 5.2 - MID-INDIAN RIDGE - 2011-07-26 14:26 UTC

Source: www.emsc-csem.org...
Source: www.emsc-csem.org...

This one literally was at a three point intersection of fault lines, almost dead center of the Indian Ocean. Does this shift the plates harder? Is it something to watch?

The depth was only 10Km I have found no Tsunami warnings for this yet but I don't think it is within the depth range to be serious. My concern really is the location. Like I said above it is on an intersection of three lines with another intersection of three just to the south.
 


Also I had another question. Throughout the last few months that this thread has had my attention I have noticed that the Mediterranean is popping like a tin of popcorn on a stove, and the Ring of Fire seems to be "floating" of a sort(bobbing up and down). I say this because everything from South America to Alaska(clockwise) seems to be slipping and sliding but California seems to be fairly inactive. Almost strangely so. With the recent predictions of large quakes to California and all the activity throughout the Ring of Fire, California has nothing. Little ones, yes, but in the whole scheme of activity, California is stagnant.

What I am seeing is like a water bottle lid, you know how they have that little tab that holds the lid to the ring around the neck of the bottle. If the San Andreas is better connected to the mass, it would move less,correct?
Well, I see one of two things happening, either the shifts are moving up and down causing pressure on the San Andreas, then relieving it, if so, there would be no problem. Or, the snap, if the San Andreas "Breaks", would have no recorded historical equivalent. Also, the world deepest and larges canyon sits in the Monterey Bay extending out into the Pacific. So, if the San Andreas goes it would seem fair to assume that this canyon would snap as well, as thin as the crust is there.

My question, Does this sound Plausible?

I state all of that then a 5.5 in the Gulf of California between Baja and Mainland Mexico. Source: www.emsc-csem.org...

It would sit on the Southern edge of the tab I am referring to.

Edit to add: It seems to get really quiet from northern California to southern Alaska could this be the tab?

This would suggest that generally it is busier down towards the bottom end. There do seem to be more than usual, but that area is unlikely to do anything since like the Atlantic, and unlike the Pacific which does have a crack down it but is very lopsided, the crack runs through the middle so any large quakes are unlikely to cause much or any damage. This is not to say they won't happen, but I don't think the potential for very large quakes exists there.


Also I had another question. Throughout the last few months that this thread has had my attention I have noticed that the Mediterranean is popping like a tin of popcorn on a stove, and the Ring of Fire seems to be "floating" of a sort(bobbing up and down). I say this because everything from South America to Alaska(clockwise) seems to be slipping and sliding but California seems to be fairly inactive. Almost strangely so. With the recent predictions of large quakes to California and all the activity throughout the Ring of Fire, California has nothing. Little ones, yes, but in the whole scheme of activity, California is stagnant.


Over what period of time? There was after all that huge amount of earthquakes at Baja California last year, and there have been several biggish ones in the Gulf Of California, but we are humans and have short memories and even shorter attention spans.

Mother nature is not concerned with a year, or two, or a hundred, or even a thousand. That is a blink as far as she is concerned. The apparent cycle of stronger earthquakes around 35 to 50 years - Chile, Alaska, Banda Aceh etc is no more than her breathing.


What I am seeing is like a water bottle lid, you know how they have that little tab that holds the lid to the ring around the neck of the bottle. If the San Andreas is better connected to the mass, it would move less,correct?


Well according to the theorists we are all going floaty floaty on the asthenosphere in our little lithospheric bumper cars so who is anchored, and to what? They say Africa is the most stable continent. Mm, yes let me see, Aden, East African Rift, Nabro etc. Very stable.

Take a look at the Coriolis effect and how that might be shaping our planet. (I am still investigating this one)


Well, I see one of two things happening, either the shifts are moving up and down causing pressure on the San Andreas, then relieving it, if so, there would be no problem.


The San Andreas is not the movement of two plates up and down but moving past each other. The Pacific side rotating (maybe) such that the side is moving North and the USA continental mass - or part of it - rotating in the same direction, thus causing a Southwards movement of it's flank at the point where it moves against the rotating Cali-Pacific area. Sort of like two gear wheels next to each other, both spinning the same way. Imagine the teeth engaging in that situation.


Or, the snap, if the San Andreas "Breaks", would have no recorded historical equivalent. Also, the world deepest and larges canyon sits in the Monterey Bay extending out into the Pacific. So, if the San Andreas goes it would seem fair to assume that this canyon would snap as well, as thin as the crust is there.


The San Andreas will not 'break' as such. This is not the same situation and for example Band Aceh. The SA can 'stick' and then jerk forwards, but you are not going to get a mega thrust there.


My question, Does this sound Plausible?


Well my friend anything is plausible provided it is not totally ridiculous because we really know very little ......

Thank you,

It looks as if the Indian ocean has an average 5.0 every couple of weeks.

I realize that the San Andreas moves sideways not up and down, I was referring to the whole plate. I was trying to watch it in my minds eye in motion rather than the slips here and there, does that make sense? Any way I don't know if you saw my next post about this "tab". I am seeing it from Northern California to Southern Alaska. It seems to be lacking movement. This is what I am referring to "Breaking". I just confused everything, sorry about that.

I happened to notice this private recorder in Texas showing some mighty signatures from the Gulf Of California and thought you folks might be interested.



I had to do a double take as it looks at first glance as if the trace is backwards but it is the effect of the 5.0 overlaying this signature from the 5.9, which I still think is going to be raised to a 6.1 eventually. Time will tell but I have taken all the details in case - which probably means it won't be

What troubles me about this tiny quake, is it's location. Central Arkansas is having consistent quakes, but the locations are not like the swarm over the last year. Those were located almost exclusively along the Guy/Greenbrier "new" faultline.

Now, there popping up in the same region, but in adjacent areas, not up and down a "known" fault.

www.sciencedaily.com...

www.msnbc.msn.com...

So, is the areas around the Guy/Greenbrier fault just readjusting?

Or....


Here's a long list of the Arkansas quakes. If you notice, the earlier quakes were mostly near Greenbrier. Then they stopped the injection wells, and the quakes decreased over time. But then lately, you have quakes seemingly popping up regularly, but in different locations.

I noticed and was thinking the same thing this morning when I viewed my morning EQ's with Coffee.


I live just east of Nashville by 15 miles. I am in no way wanting to see these swarms.....just unsettling with all the quakes and shtf everywhere. Makes you wonder what is coming if anything at all. I am accustomed to storms but have NEVER been through an EQ and don't want to.
Of course....who does.

Man... I got some crazy P waves from what has to be this quake (5.9 atlantic ridge). I don't get it. In all my time watching GEE I've never seen the P waves this big from something under a 6 mag, and this has to be the second round? (2nd wave)...because I just came back to my computer and saw it and immediately pulled up USGS expecting a big one somewhere.

Same thing happened with the quake in the gulf, also a 5.9.

OK maybe somebody could have a look at this please.....PuterMan?

It could be that it is starting to pick up what is happening on El Hierro, but then wouldn't it have been doing that almost from the start? Could 'creep' or the 'jackhammer' (as I call it) be kicking in here?
