Aha! Perhaps there is a lead here...the smells!
Perhaps, you would be so good as to respond to this potentially significant project we have just initiated.
From what we know at this time, it appears that many of the earthquake lights appear about 30 minutes before a major earthquake. With enough data, it
might be possible to postulate the birth of some sort of "early warning system," based on real-time data from enough respondents over a broad area -
or pinpointed in places like Yellowstone, New Madrid, SoCal, Alaska, etc.
As a first responder and having lived in SoCal for 40 years, I can tell you that a 30-minute lead time on a quake could save thousands of lives.
How about assisting in this project which will correlate earthquake lights, strange sounds and rumblings - before, during, after - and earthquakes.
The information collected could possibly lead to some sort of earthquake prediction system here within ATS if the data can be analyzed for some sort
of predictive pattern. The idea is to collect the correct data from the start - and as soon as possible IMHO.
I, personally, would welcome any advice/help/suggestions/interested parties to make this idea better and a reality sooner.
It might be interesting to see if any of these sounds have "Earthquake Lights" associated with them before/during/after the sounds and an
earthquake? Or were there sounds/lights and the EQ hasn't happened as yet - we really do not have enough data to make an informed decision as to the
amount of time between events...?
Here's another thought...what about pre-quake smells
Thank you for your time and consideration.
These challenges to life and sanity on this planet must be met with clear minds and sound hearts, so may your 2011 see you embracing its highest
potential and onward through the fog!
