Actually, to me that looks like they issued a calibration pulse just as the quake hit. Calibration pulses take many different forms, cause Lord knows I've seen hundreds at this point.

Phase data on that "6.5" suggest that was nowhere near a 6.5 or 6.3. The aftershock though suggests it might be. Hmm. Haven't seen the wave in GEE yet, but I am growing increasingly weary of their automatic systems, and even more leery of the seismologists reviewing them.

If you guys want another source for magnitude data, use Global CMT:
www.ldeo.columbia.edu...

They run behind some hours or days, but at least the data is pretty well gone over. I was told by a seismologist that when in question, they will usually turn to Global CMT for accuracy.

I hope PM gets a chance to listen. I saw it and thought it may be weather related. I haven't looked at the weather report yet though. STAR and Newbury Caldera don't look much better than Glacier Mnt. What do you think?

Re weather: expecting 3-6 inches of snow on Baker & Rainier over the next couple of days, but couldn't find any info on today.
edit on 1-11-2011 by zenius because: edit



I haven't read puterman's reply yet....wanted to first answer you about the weather. It is absolutely gorgeous out both yesterday and today. It was nice saturday, horrible Sunday (wind/rain) but yesterday and today.....blue skies and sunshine (but cold). So no, I do not believe weather to be a factor. I have a clear view in its direction! (can't see it, but the mountains that block it)

The thing is, with Rainier and Newberry, it isn't unusuall to see all those little micro quakes. Yes, they will intensify and you get a lot of ice quakes, but their presence is not out of the ordinary. I don't think I have ever seen that much activity at Glacier Peak. According to the PNSN site, there hasn't been even a micro quake since 2007!

Wow! Thanks for the analysis. makes me a bit nervous though...as I have said, I have never seen this kind of action up there before. I don't like that.

NOW...add to that the nice two quakes up there in the past couple of hours, and my nervousness is increasing a bit. I certainly hope this is not a growing trend.

Have any links regarding what you're referring to as a calibration pulse?

Hoping this is not the start of something in your neck of the woods. If it is, then you know what you need to do and are as ready as anybody can be. Hopefully it's nothing and things will settle down. As settled as our planet ever is anyway


Take care!

Hi MamaJ,

The spikes on the graphs are earthquakes- the bigger the spike, the bigger the earthquake. Where the lines get "thick" sometimes represents magma movement - but it can also be wind/rain/train/chainsaw/SNOW PLOW ;-) - anything that is constant and moves or vibrates the instruments. We had a heck of time last year and the year before when we were watching Yellowstone - we got to know the park pretty good like when they were blasting to the East, time of day they opened and closed. employee break time etc...

Oh ok....thank you so much for the insight. I was beginning to question my sanity.


I am like JC....hopefully the west coast will simmer down because now that Southern California has had a 4.1 I am left to wonder but am also hopeful!!

Hi TA,

thank you for the comments re GPW, thanks also to Puterman for providing those graphics that indicate it's not a "natural" event being shown on the seismo at that time.

I dug back through the last few days and found the following:
year day 299 shows a similar trace at 12:35:05
year day 300 shows a similar trace at 06:35:05
year day 301 shows a similar trace at 00:35:05 and 18:35:05
year day 302 shows a similar trace at 12:35:05
year day 303 shows a similar trace at 06:35:00
year day 304 shows a similar trace at 00:35:00 and 18:35:00
year day 305 (today) shows a similar trace at 12:35. (or a few seconds before.)

There is a clear 18-hour interval and (though I'm happy to be corrected) it seems likely that this trace is due to calibration.

Mike

Thanks Mike...I agree that those particular spikes are definitely NOT seismic in nature. GPW has always been 'glitchy'....and I just ignore those anomalies. What I don't like are the micro quakes. NOT normal. I'm sure you noticed when you went back and looked, that there tends to be a lot of wierd interference, etc. but not micro quakes.

The thing with Glacier Peak, is that it is easy to rule out a lot of the 'normal' stuff. It is very isolated. No roads, no trains, no nothin. There isn't even a real access road. This is why most people living right next to it don't even know it's there. It is tucked away in the mountain range, out of sight, out of mind.

MamaJ and others....this really doesn't mean much of anything to anyone other than those of us living near it. (or at least in Washington) I care more about it because my house sits on it's last lahar...which flowed all the way to the sound. I am not saying that I think it is going to erupt (otherwise, I wouldn't be sitting here calmly typing
) Just that this is activity that is not normal, so should be watched.

Well whatever the case...I am right beside you. If you are concerned....so am I. My brother lives in San Jose and so anything to do with the West Coast is of interest to me.


If it does erupt.....what will happen? I would look it up but I am on the way out the door. Be back soon though to see what ya say.

Isolated is right!


Here's a linky to pictures taken when GPW was installed back on Sept 10, 2001. Looks really beautiful there...

As you say, not much chance of a lot of cultural noise there from people tramping around, but I bet it gets pretty windy sometimes, even when it might be farily calm down in the valleys.

Okay I have to go and get some more work done. Catch you all later, folks.

Mike

Thansk for that link Mike... I was too lazy.
As it shows, it appears they were flown in by helicopter to install it. I know I read somewhere that there isn't even an access road. I am sure that a lot of the background noise we see up there is from the wind. It IS beautiful! (I think that's Baker in the background in one shot)

HERE is the PNSN website for it...not a whole lot of info there. You have to go digging. it is not very well-known.

Here's the WIKI link.


Glacier Peak (known in the Sauk Indian dialect of Lushootseed as "Tda-ko-buh-ba" or "Takobia" [5]) is the most isolated of the five major stratovolcanoes (composite volcanoes) of the Cascade Volcanic Arc in Washington. Located in the Glacier Peak Wilderness, the volcano is not easily discernible from any heavily populated area; as a result the volcano is largely understudied and not as much is known about it compared to other volcanoes in the area. Since the most recent ice age, it has produced some of largest and most explosive eruptions in the state. The mountain has erupted explosively during each of five episodes in the past 3,000 years. The volcano formed during the Pleistocene epoch, about 1 million years ago. Glacier Peak is one of the most active of Washington's volcanoes. When continental ice sheets retreated from the region, Glacier Peak began to erupt regularly. It has erupted repeatedly during at least six periods; two of these incidents have been among the largest in Washington.



So, as you can see...it is not one we should be ignoring.

To all of you experts :
Drilling Ship to Probe Fault Zone that Caused Fukushima Quake

After being tossed about and damaged by the tsunami that devastated northeastern Japan on March 11, Japan's drilling ship the Chikyu has been given an especially fitting assignment: to drill into the fault zone and take temperature measurements near the epicentre of the magnitude-9.0 Tohoku earthquake that caused the tsunami. It will be the first time that researchers have drilled into an underwater fault soon after a quake. The aim of the exercise is to solve a decades-old mystery about the part that friction plays in such an event. This should help scientists to understand why some faults are more likely than others to cause tsunamis — in this case, one that ultimately claimed more than 23,000 lives.


Couldn't this be dangerous??
