also look at the bonin island area of Japan that area has been off the charts for the last 3 months, there have been 5- areas that have swarms that ive been tracking worldwide
bonnin area
Yellowstone,
Arkansas,
Chille
California,

cant count the area above Ancorage alsaksa

also note how many volcanos are seeing increased siesmic activity......
Mt rainier,
Mt St, Helans
and Mt hood
in the past 2 weeks all 3 have had quakes at the summits not to count the ones around there

Geysers, CA - is home to one of the largest Geothermal Power Plants. See Here . I'm telling you They just don't care what fault they set off.

Well i only have 10 acres but if need be i would gladly use it for a refuge camp. lol
No Texans unless they say there from Arkansas lol (just dont want to hear how 10 acres is bigger in Texas lol).

Go here for absolute shedloads of research into that area.

That zoomed in trace you were looking at is minor earthquake signatures riding on the basic wave that gives the wobbly line. I was examining a small portion of this last night and saw exactly that.


Okay, so I'm attempting to wrap my brain around this one...uh-oh


Are you saying that each of those spikes is just what they appear to be, micro quakes? Meaning that there were periods of time last night (lasting for a few minutes each) where there were literally dozens to hundreds of very small, rapid quakes in succession?

I picture it as if you were to step in the center of a sheet of plywood that is sitting suspended atop two cement blocks. Let's say there is already a crack in the wood and when you step on it, it is forced downward in the center, futher cracking it apart....splintering it. I picture each of those splinters as a spike on the graph. Would this be an accurate depiction? Granted, if we were to be more realistic, the ply-wood would be 12 inches think instead of 1/4 inch and the splintering would be taking place on a smaller level a few inches down...but you get my point.

This is a disturbing thing to be seeing, isn't it?

Here is the image:

2 things I would like to know, But i cant find any info.

1. most current geo thermal maps (Im having trouble finding them for the midwest.)
2. The gps readings for swelling of the ground.

As a side bar I was researching the geothermal info. It seems the gas companys are the key source for geothermal info. They supply the info to the usgs. (so if there was a problem it would first show up with them)

I don't have any idea if this can have any affect at all, but I just found out from another member in the Solar Watch thread that we are getting hit by a minor geomagnetic storm right now. I watch the Solar stuff quite reguarly and I had no idea anything was inbound.

For the experts on here, I would love to know if there is any relation between tectonic activity and geomagnetic storms?

I hope not. Thanks in advance.

I checked the Texas quakes. Within five miles I found a fracking pad. There is gas production in the area of the Texas quake.


Using this viewer and searching Scurry County-- gis2.rrc.state.tx.us... I don't see ANY gas wells in the area of the quake. Lots of oil wells & dry holes, but no gas wells. Do they "frack" vertical oil wells? I honestly don't know. I thought fracking was mainly used in extracting gas from shale formations...a big one in Texas is the Barnett Shale Play -- largely situated in the Ft. Worth area.

I saw the 'seconds-apart' quakes last night too, on the USGS site...I wondered about that............

Include Iceland as well? or no? It's been pretty active lately also.

Perhaps a crustal slip is in it's beginnin stages. We have no idea as to what such a happening would look like on our instruments but we could make some educated guesses.

I made a comment in the yellowstone thread about the possibility of seismic events that are so rare, we've never recorded them. We've only been recording data for a bi lt more than a century. I there were an event that only occurs on an epochal time scale, we'd have absolutlely no reference A slippage of the earths crust in it's entirety would certainly qualify as such an event.

Is my tinfoil hat on too tight or what?

Sorry, but I can see them coming. The smaller quakes preceeding it made me expect it.

That's how I started the thread. I knew a big swarm was coming by reading the little quakes. I wonder how long after I said that did it hit.

Texas, Arkansas, I expect Oklahoma next.


Yes! You can definately see a pattern after watching it for awhile. Almost as if the land were taking a big breath. Depending on the build-up, determines the size of what is released in the end. (imagine a small child who is hurt and takes the big breath before screaming....the longer it goes the more you know you are in for!)

As to where the next one outside of arkansas will be...I am feeling that we may see some more in texas, and I'm expecting more in the GOM...perhaps south of Texas this time though. If the edge of the plate is in the GOM, then that is where the response will be from possibly, especially since we have alrady seen one. Just a thought.

I have just recently started watching this Since last September I think it was. Anyway, I have noticed an uptick in quakes with incoming flares. The big beginning of the ongoing in Arkansas started 2 weeks ago when we where being hit with the incoming from the X flare

I don't have too much time at the moment. When I looked I even saw the trucks and the collecting pools. They are probably fracking now because the flow stopped, and they can't continue in a convential drill. So they frack it.

Thank you. I have been watching this for a while myself, and IMO, I think there is a definite conection. But who, what, where, how, and why, is what I do not know about at all.

An afterthought, if there was indeed some kind of connection two weeks ago, and with the current pressure that has been built up with all of the other quakes since then, especially in light of the recent 4.7, what might happen with this 'minor' geomagnetic storm that is hitting us?

yea ive been watching this, yellowstone, geyser springs, and the alaska gulf. (alaska has tons but not many way out in the gulf.
I think the whole plate is sliding eastward, there has been a lot of action this last year in the pacific plate, its not the amount of quakes that worry me. It just seems the ole 3.3 has been replaced with 4.5s notice most quakes on the asian side of the pacific plate are up in the 4+ range and a lot of 5s. not unusual for the quakes just seems they are getting biggger on averiage around the globe


To be honest, I have only glanced at the other worldwide quakes. You can try to get the Quake Geeks at Quake Watch to give their opinion.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Puterman answers mostly everyone's questons on most of the quake threads. Or volcano watch because some of it's volcanic. And Yellowstone. Man we got lots of Quake Geeks here.

I have my ideas about global influences. But they're so hard to pin down. Because, like the moon, it's statistical. A small trigger. It's like splitting hairs. Just before the big quake, there was pause, and tidal affects could be seen. Then bang. There's something there. I just haven't done enough reading yet. Too much writing. But it's hard keeping up with events.

And if you look just before these last two 3 mags, you see the tidal signal coming back.
