Interesting and thanks for that. (I take it all back Mike/TA I was given incorrect information - calibration pulses it is then from now on.)

Must add that page to my learning links. (Since discovered it is just the image. Never mind)

The US should take note.

This is how things are done in the UK. Occupy the darn fracking sites!!

@PuterMan et all about fracking...here is link to article reported on BBC
www.bbc.co.uk...

"Fracking tests near Blackpool 'likely cause' of tremorsCuadrilla's Mark Miller: "There are procedures we can put in place to practise earthquake prevention"
It is "highly probable" that shale gas test drilling triggered earth tremors in Lancashire, a study has found.

But the report, commissioned by energy firm Cuadrilla, also said the quakes were due to an "unusual combination of geology at the well site".

It said conditions which caused the minor earthquakes were "unlikely to occur again".

Protesters against fracking, a gas extraction method, said the report "did not inspire confidence".

Six protesters from campaign group Frack Off climbed a drilling rig at one of Cuadrilla's test drilling sites in Hesketh Bank, near Southport, ahead of the report.

They are against fracking, a controversial extraction method which blasts water into rock to release shale gas, because they fear it is not safe.".....continued on link

That can't be right. MSM doesn't report such things. I nearly fell off my chair.
Now if only they'll report on the risk to the water supplies and possible air contamination due to this industry I'll fall right off my chair.
I'm wondering how long it will be before we see fracking related quakes in Australia.

Just had a look at Geoscience Aust. and interestingly there have been small quakes both north and south of Sydney. One only this morning. So I had a look and found a company who it appears performs csg extraction in that particular basin..link

Here's a map of csg areas of Australia

Is the global incident map at this site:

not interactive, or is my browser not working. I'm not able to click on the map to link through to specific quake information as with the global map at the USGS site.

So I posted this on my washington thread, but since we have been discussing Glacier Peak here too, I thought I would share!!

I wrote to the PNSN yesterday about the micro quakes, providing a link to that seismo. They have always been good about getting back to me, but I really didn't expect what they said. Here is a copy of the email (reading from bottom up):

********




Tara,


Thank you for the heads up!


There do seem to be some small local earthquakes on this record and we are looking at them more closely. Our coverage of Glacier Peak is pretty poor. We have only one station on the mountain and our system requires 3 or more stations to "trigger" on an event to get computer generated notifications. This would happen with a magnitude 2 or better but small M 1 earthquakes can slip by if not noticed. "Ice Quakes" can also look a lot like small earthquakes but usually have a different frequency content.
Our duty seismologists often review our subnet triggers with a particular eye for GPW events because of our poor coverage in the area but there are hundreds of these, usually wind noise, and interesting little events can get missed.
Thanks again for watching and taking the time to write. We will follow up and let you know what the volcano seismologists have to say about these once they have had a chance to review this "activity".

Hello! I have been monitoring the cascade chain for sometime now and couldn't help but notice the recent activity at Glacier Peak. I live less than 50 miles from this volcano so have a vested interest in it! (My house sits on its last lahar) Looking at the most recent seismo:

www.iris.washington.edu...

....there most definitely seem to be some micro quakes, increasing in size over the past couple of days. Given the eruptive nature of this volcano, and the lack of monitoring equipment/isolation, it is one that makes me a bit nervous. I see that to date, none of these quakes have been listed. Are you aware of any changes or signs in addition to these micro quakes?

Thank you for your time-

Also good to know that our deductions are correct and that when we look at seismos we are not talking through our hats.

The ice quakes confirmed as well in all probability. Nice one.

So it takes ATS to tell them what is going on?? That is a bit worrying!

Heh dude, it's likely not that USGS isn't watching their machines, its that there staff watching the machines is small. That's a lot of readings to check, even with automation.

I feel safer that the ATS quake team is watching.

So I already got a response back from the PNSN regarding Glacier Peak.

I will summarize:

It is a noisy station...................... check

There are POPS.................... check (nearby glaciers?)

There are BLEEBS.................... check (nearby avalanching?)

There are RUMBLES.................... check (storm noise?)

There is only one station................... check

Too hard to tell................... check


Doesn't look like any increasing trend ............................................. check????????


So essentially confirms what we saw, but that due to there only being one station there, the automatic triggering (which requires three stations) doesn't occur. So it is up to them to look at it manually. Since it is such a noisy station, the only one there, and very remote, they really don't know for sure what is causing everything but they have good theories. (much like us here on ATS). They haven't seen anything though to make them think that there is any growing or increasing trend.

Make of it what you want. I am very greatful for the response and appreciate their friendliness and willingness to share the info. It pretty much confirms what I thought:

Glacier Peak is a dangerous, active volcano that is very isolated with only one station on it.

I will keep watching.

What puzzles me is why isn't someone with knowledge putting all the pieces together. An earthquake does not stand alone, something is causing it, some force be it the sun, be it tectonics, be it volcanoes, be it fracking, where are the answers? No one is willing to state for the record that:

1. Earthquakes are increasing
2. Earthquakes are gaining in strength
3. Earthquakes cause the magnetic poles to weaken and shift
4. CME's increase the possibility of large quakes
5. Any other theory that explains why these quakes are happening in locations that we have not really seen previously.

Answers please...

Hey bro!

Just read through the last two years of quake watch and you will find all the info you seek.

There are a couple of crazy smart peeps kind of leading us mere mortals to the truth.

Enjoy!
