Baby Boomers, baby boomers.
POP! POP! POP!
Wavy tumours, wavy tumours.
STOP! STOP! STOP!

Click-clack, frick-frack-

Tick-tack, knick-knack.

Oh, what's that smell?

I need to fetch some water.
Oh, Bloody Hell.

Hi Eric

The earth starts to rumble,
I feel like I am going to stumble.
Everywhere starts to shake,
I hear someone shout
Get under a desk for goodness sake!
I know what’s going on,
It sounds like a great, big bomb.
People are weeping,
Car horns are beeping.
The earth plates are moving,
Although it’s not very soothing.
I hear the crust crumble,
As it starts to tumble.
I’m glad it’s all over,
I didn’t think they occurred in Dover.
I can now carry on with my work,
Now everyone has stopped going berserk.

the rock 15 miles below is lubricated with highly pressurized water

Source in your link.

2 things here

(1)They have been fracking the San Andreas?
(pressurised water)


(2)The scientists have not come up with a suggestion as to how this pressurised water got there. They will tell you it percolated down from above. They are stupid. Free draining water will not 'percolate' into a high pressure area.

I believe that this water is from the source of ALL the water on the planet and is the product of abiotic hydrocarbon production. The name alone says it - HYDROcarbon.


Not fracking (that I've heard of) but drilling for oil for 50+ years just east of the fault...

I do think scientists have explained how high pressurized water got there. As I understand plate tectonic theory, including subduction zones and spreading ridges, seawater is incorporated into newly formed basaltic oceanic plates as water-bearing minerals. As the oceanic lithosphere ages, it cools, becomes more dense, and is overlain by a considerable amount of water-rich sediments (mostly clays).

When this oceanic lithosphere is subducted (which is theorized to have happened to the Farallon plate along the west coast of California. Second source from USGS), the water trapped in the sediments and water-rich minerals (such as amphiboles) is released due to mantle dewatering and flux melting. The water rises through the overlying mantle wedge were it leads to related volcanic arc eruptions. Another source

"Free draining water" (meteoric water) can "percolate" down, but only 5-10km in most areas. Source
Here is an article on both meteoric and magmatic fluids (including water) weakening the San Andreas Fault Source
And one more on magmatic water in the crust...www.scitopics.com...

I'm not very good at explaining this, but I think it shows a mechanism for water to be found fairly deep in the crust.

I have understood that the tidal forces act on fault systems already hair-trigger cocked etc.

Nevertheless, it seems like the list of 6 or larger quakes you listed had some above average--above chance tendencies to cluster either close to the quake or close to the antipodal point from the quake.

Is that just a rare artificact of true chance or is there really something there.

Seems to me some basic stats would ferret that out a bit more.

imho.

Not fracking (that I've heard of)


That was tongue in cheek!!


All of it, the articles, subduction and the abiotic theories are mainly supposition. I had written a long reply but I canned it as the scientists are no more right than the other theories and I have run out of energy to fight just now.

No fighting...never.....just friendly conversation.
And I here you about no energy to debate--they are all just theories, some, better able to describe what we see (and can't see) about our planet than others.

Btw, I enjoyed the first bit of work you've done on the moon--and I'm sure you will have plenty of time to finish it.

Take care, PM

EDIS
RSOE EDIS have also added Santorini to their list of Supervolcs!

"November 13, 2011 – GREECE – Seismic activity beneath Santorini volcano continues to be slightly above normal levels. Beginning since July this year, an there is elevated activity in a SW-NE trending zone passing through Nea Kameni and the submarine Kolumbos volcano NE of Santorini. The alignment (also known as the Kameni and Kolumbus lines) is a ca. 2 km wide zone parallel to a tectonic horst and graben structure of the crystalline basement of the area. Most of the known volcanic vents of Santorini during the past 2 million years were located on this alignment, more precisely either on its southern boundary (Kameni line) or on its northern boundary (Kolumbus line). Lacking other data sources, the information visible on the location and number of earthquakes is too weak, other than to vaguely speculate that the current earthquake activity around Santorini could be a precursor to new activity from this volcano. Santorini’s last eruption was in 1950. –Volcano Discovery
The devastating volcanic eruption of Santorini at Thera has become the most famous single event in the Aegean before the fall of Troy. It may have been one of the largest volcanic eruptions on Earth in the last few thousand years, with an estimated 7 on the VEI (volcanic explosivity index). -Wikipedia

Quake off east Indonesia panics many; no tsunami

Associated Press / November 14, 2011

(...)

Many people in Ternate, the town in North Maluku province that was closest to the epicenter, scurried from shaking buildings, said George Rajaloa, a resident.

"I ran with everyone else," he said.

Suhardjono, from the Indonesian meteorological and geophysics agency, said at that magnitude and depth there was no danger of tsunami.

But residents fled beaches all the same

RSOE and The Extinction Protocol in one post !!!!! I may never recover


===================================

The policy of changing magnitudes after 7 days I have come to the conclusion is absolutely deliberate.

Once again a magnitude has changed and this time, as I have seen before, the quake appears on both list and I have managed to snag the details.

The 7 day listing (Nicaragua at the bottom)


And the 8-30 day listing


The 8-30 day is in limbo as there are no links. There is probably not much point in going to the pages after 23:00 UTC as the changeover will be gone but in the meantime: 7 day list and 8-30 day list

When it has gone off the 7 day list the new links for the neic version will appear on the 8-30 days list.

From the QED text listing


223526.8 11.602N 85.906W 181D A 1.0 120 350 NICARAGUA. MW 6.0 (WCMT), 6.1 (GS), 6.0 (UCMT)


Sorry but this HAS to be deliberate.

From the cumulative numbers on the 365 day plot below you can see that there is a very minor increase in the past few days, but less than in June.



Here is that 'tail end' part



Looking at the cumulative energy for the past 180 days in order to cover the June quakes and the current ones we get a bit of a surprise. There must have been a single larger quake in August which just goes to show why you cannot use numbers. The current energy release pales into insignificance as does the June one, even though the numbers are higher.



Is there a problem at Santorini? I personally don't believe so, but them I am not a doom-monger so what do I know?

Considering the relative quake mag numbers that's a heck of a difference in magnitude. I mean, a 4.4 is five times bigger than a 3.7 and more than 11 times stronger in energy release. Them's no small potatoes.

I wonder who's closest to the real figure? Ditto for depth. And why so different?

Not implying anything,
just thinking out loud.
