I have also been very interested in the depth, or lack thereof, of the VA quakes - can one of our earthquake gurus chime in on this? Thank you !! You guys and girls rock.

The only suggestion I can offer is this:


The Central Virginia seismic zone is far from the nearest plate boundaries, which are in the center of the Atlantic Ocean and in the Caribbean Sea. The seismic zone is laced with known faults but numerous smaller or deeply buried faults remain undetected. Even the known faults are poorly located at earthquake depths.


earthquake.usgs.gov...

Other than that I don't know since as you say some of them are very shallow. I think maybe they had nothing to build their character when they were quakelets.

Sir, you have a far wider knowledge of earthquakes etc. than I. Saw one highly detailed, line of present experiments concerning the CORE of the planet. One important reality that was discovered shows how Cryatals are formed by the Core which is said to be similar temperature to the Sun. Maryland university shows how one dedicated scientist has constructed a large steel Globe shaped device and how his plan is to spin 85 ton of molten steel. The programme explains all in full, gives reference to certain shifting anomolies and explains how such helped to damage the hubble. Also shown / explained are the fall at certain points of our protective magnetic shield which as time goes by could allow this planet to be belched with incoming protons.

Programme referred to is ;
www.bbc.co.uk...

Hope this perhaps helps spell out one or two useful factors

I do not know if this is relevant, but when they did earthquake drills last year on the Oregon coast, they used helicopters to fly over the area. Most of the drill was just flying over the area near the coast, and it did last for a while. When the nuclear power plant in Nebraska flooded, there were planes and helicopters around the area for days. Also, I seem to remember another member mentioning a plane along the coast right after the Virginia earthquake, maybe this is standard procedure, or maybe it is something else altogether.

Hello,
I was checking to see how common Quakes are in that location for Ohio and found a cool site thought I`d share.
Here is something cool with that 3.1 in Ohio.
It appears in 10/24/2010 there was a 2.8 near the same place.

You can see all Ohio Quakes here at this link but the 3.1 is not listed yet.

The core of the planet and it's composition and behaviour is critical to the understanding of earthquakes, volcanoes and the existence or otherwise of plate tectonics.

The main problem I have with any suggestion that the core is iron, or steel, or whatever, is that a ball of iron that large would NOT be so weakly magnetic if it was continually receiving a magnetic charge. Further more reversing the magnetic field of such a massive spherical magnet could take a very very long time.

So according to the scientists we have a solid iron core, presumably because of the pressure despite it being 6000 deg C, and a liquid iron outer core, and this causes anomalies? Sorry can't run the video in your link as not in the UK ( For those of us not in the UK the article that relates to is this here )

From the article referenced:

Seismology is "the killer application", says Aster, showing us the Earth has a molten outer-core, "an enormous ocean of white hot molten metal that's almost as runny as water".


Oh yes? This is an assumption and not a fact. Plasma theory would disagree, and plasma theory explains the magnetic field and many other things that a runny molten outer core/solid inner core does not.

Read this about the internal pressure of the Earth.


if the plasma core was in fact held stable by the fact that intense pressure doesn't allow the free molecules to travel (maybe even subatomic particles) it would give a reading of being solid. magnetic fields are mysterious to us from all that I have read, but I believe it could be explained by neutrinos (or whatever subatomic particle we haven't named yet)

the main thing that brings up confusion to me is that when I look at all the physics of magma becoming lava then escaping to the surface is that is goes against certain many things too numerous to include here. It would seem that the core is not only of great mass but under constant outward pressure. A solid core indicates that there is inward pressure that should build to a point of explosion. A near solid plasma core would give all the same readings as a solid core but provide with better explanations to the way the thermodynamics and fluids behave.


Source

This seems to make sense. A plasma core would better explain earthquakes and magma than a solid core.

Now this is part of the expanding earth theory, but none the less a valid theory in relation to the core.


According to the transmission of seismic waves through the Earth's core and the composition of meteorites, it had previously been thought that the inner core was solid, composed of nickel, iron and probably sulphur. The outer core was assumed to be molten. Owen explains that "the behaviour of waves passing through a plasma core would be similar to that in a solid iron-sulphur core".


Source

More....

The solid plasma oxygen core, due to fusion heat and pressure, sets a barrier that shields the mantle and helps conserve fuel. The earth’s spinning fusion core provides the tremendous energy needed to make the core rotate faster than the mantle and crust. While atom creation provides the energy and the materials for the building and movement of the crustal plates
.
The earth's magnetic field direction is due to core exhaust heat primarily going into the higher thermal gradient with the poles. This extra heat thickens the solid plasma oxygen core both north and south. This accounts for the faster seismic speed north-south relative to east-west.

The earth's magnetic field direction will result in the solid oxygen core getting somewhat thicker either north or sourth dependant on the incumbant magnetic field direction. Structural equilibrium will require a periodic change in the primary direction of the core exhaust heat thereby periodically alterring the magnetic field direction.


Source

Finally, the incredible closed minds of science that can make statements like this:


"99.9 percent of the Universe is made up of plasma," says Dr. Dennis Gallagher, a plasma physicist at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center. "Very little material in space is made of rock like the Earth."


Source: NASA

In my simple mind the fact that 99.9% is made of plasma is a good pointer that the core might also be so. The Sun is and coincidentally is said to be the same temperature (6000 deg C) as the core of the Earth. Now why would that be if the Sun is plasma and the Earth is Iron?

Men in white coats guessing as usual.

This is the real true Fact:

There is confusion on Paradise Earth and nobody really knows what is happening 10,000 km below their feet. In this 21st century so many Laws and Facts of Science has already been turned over, proven wrong and still many more will be.

There are many for plasma theory as core and many more reasons why the core could not be a solid.

To get to the first point in all arguements: What is Magnetism? Only when we have that answer can we possibly begin to ponder the issue of what we can not investigate - yet.

On a side note these Earthquakes sure do seem to be occuring in very " Diverse " places....


Almost as if they are taking place in nearly every corner of our round world....

Bless your heart. I would feel the same way as you if I lived daily with an EQ, especially if I had an fear of them. I personally live in the States of the US. Tennessee to be exact and just east of Nashville. I pray all the time the New Madrid will hold its own in the coming crisis of EQ escalation in diverse places.

How far are you from where this one took place today? I am praying for all, that is for sure!! xoxoxo
