I hope it was warm enough outside. And realized you meant a metal spring being popped and not a natural water spring flowing. Scared me for a sec though, thought your house was over on open water source. Glad crickets an such are normal, next time puppies give it up, would you check and see if crickets stop?

I found an interesting animation of the liquification process:

Yes, the program is pretty cool. Here's what it looks like. I clicked the update now button and started getting 5.0-6.0 quakes for Japan, 2.6 for Hawaii. Nothing in US at Filter: Age: 1 but when I moved it to Filter: Age: 2
I picked up this 2.6 in New Madrid zone.

Nice little app to have sat on my screen at work ... better that than working IMHO.

In case anyone is watching webis at present and wondering about the wave that showed up a few minutes ago, it's a teleseismic from the Mag 6.4 quake off Japan that occurred at 13:15:41 UTC. In the GEE image below, it shows first on the west coast-based webis (the first three shown) then shortly after it appears on TA.W40A, which is in Arkansas.



Providing it doesn't remotely trigger anything, all is okay. (In the US I mean).

Condolences and blessings to the people of Japan...

Mike, I did see that this morning. I'm in NWA. I also heard a loud boom about the time that happened. No telling what that was probably just something local that had nothing to do with it, but it did make me jump.

Something else that was discusses last night in Greenbrier was hiring a highly qualified geologist to help fight the fracking. Any recommendations out there?

I've actually tried to get a couple of geologists interested in looking into the swarm. They're busy. But I remember someone posted a video, or article, where a geologist explains the dangers of fracking. I just don't remember it specifically. There's been so many links provided here.

There swarm activity is constant. Nothing above 3+, but there is a steady series of smaller ones. I'm not going to say anythine more about remote triggering. At the moment the earth is pulsing with giant waves of siesmic energy. There was an obvious triggering of another fault in Japan, but that's another story.

I asked Puterman about some quakes in Arkansas that make me curious. But he's busy. It may be local noise. The signatures that have me scratching my head do not have a sharp start. The signals are not very big, but they can last a few seconds. It may be the larger quakes passing through. So, it may be nothing. With the earth acting like a bowl of jello, it's hard to figure out every wave. Sometimes the signals show on FCAR, but not everytime. I think that's why I'm confused. It's probably just me, I'm too fixated on the very small shakes.

A pebble falling can start a landslide. Or a little shaking. A slight change can distrub the balance of things.

You should keep a log of sorts. Everytime you hear a big noise right down the time.

RIght now that's kind of hard to do. I know we are hearing all the roars and rumbles and shaking not swaying bad though, and then USGS pops up a little after the noise that Japan just had another 5.5 or what ever size it was at the time. That is with every earthquake hitting Japan. I'm not looking too much as the seimo's right now as they are such a mess most of the time and I don't know enough about reading then to understand exactly what I'm seeing. I just know that I am not comfortable with anything going on right now in the world. Not sure there is a safe place to go at all.I need a vacation and was planning on heading out on the 18th.

If I had any room, or an extra house, I'd tell you to come visit me with the whole family, and the puppies, and all the citizens in Arkansas and beyond. I live on the Candian Shield. It's pretty safe. You may say it's the reason I moved here. And I'd want stay until after my birthday. Sometime after April 2nd. There's a significant NEW MOON on the second. That following the "Super Moon". I've been thinking about the full moon. Lots of people are looking to that particular moment for signs of coming events. Even the scientists are just starting to understand the full influence of lunar cycles and tides. They can't see the forest for the trees. Most people are thinking of it like plumbing. The moon is the handle of a pump. Yellowstone reacted on the new moon. Sometimes I'm negligent and forget to investigate my own hypotheses. I'm not trying to confuse anyone. It's just that the tides are complex, and sometimes the influence is subtle. And lags. I didn't want to talk about the moon. In fact I'm trying to ingore it so it doesn't make my loony.

I’ve had an interest in the quake swarm for months. That interest took a big jump when I felt the 4.7 quake back on Feb. 28. I live about 50 miles south of the area.

When I first started studying the situation, about the only thing I knew was that there were an uncommonly large number of quakes in a very small area. So I looked for other places that had a like history. I found fault lines with many quakes, but they tended to be dispersed up and down the fault rather than concentrated in a small area. Volcanoes do seem to have this type of repeated small quakes at the same location. But Arkansas has no modern day volcanoes.

The one place I kept coming back to was Socorro, New Mexico. Socorro has a history of concentrated quakes with no visible sign of a volcano. But what Socorro does have is a plume of magma below it.

I don’t have any reason to believe there is magma below Greenbrier. But then, I have nothing to indicate that there isn’t a hot spot either. Hopefully, someone is working to confirm or dispel any such possibility.

I'm in your camp. I can't decide. You can't rule vulcanism out of the picture completely. Especially when it's true the quakes are acting like those you see near a volcano. I don't know of any tomography that's been done that has found a chamber. I know they have been looking under Memphis, but there was no suggestion of any chamber.

Total speculation, but, if this is due to vulcanism, I would suggest that it would be more of a rift reawakening. You should search for tomography studies.

Susan, my idea would be to talk with someone at the University of Memphis Center for Earthquake Research. They are interested and researching the connection between the fracking and the fault activity, and are not far away. If they don't want to get involved, ask for recommendations. I feel sure they could point you in the right direction.

Robin,

I don't know if you have looked at this thread but it was posted a couple of days ago, and it actually has ref to Japan's increase in activity offshore. Interesting logic in his OP.

Extreme Super Moon



the last day or 2 Japan has had a rise in large quakes off the coast ranging from Mag 5-7 I have noticed at least 7-10 in the this short time.

In the 1811/1812 newspaper accounts they mention three volcanoes:

1) "In North Carolina a volcano has appeared, and that in an eruption a few days since, a flood of lava poured out which ran the distance of three quarters of a mile."

2)"The town of New Madrid has sunk 12 feet. Some Indians stated they had discovered a volcano at the head of the Arkansas, by the light of which they traveled three days and nights."

3)"On the margin of several of our rivers, pumice and other volcanic matter is found. The great Osage village on the headwaters of their river, it is said that a volcano had ceased to burn for the last three years and it is thought to have now broke out in some quarter of our county."

Those are the ones that mention a place with the account, that perhaps could be traced back. Other accounts are more general, mentioning smoke, ash, the sky darkening, clouds illuminated by fire, sulfur smell, breathing problems, day turning to night, black rocks raining down, etc.

I thought it was pretty impressive that the one was erupting big enough to be able to see at night by it, three days and nights travel away!!! Even considering travel would have been very slow, having to make their way over downed trees and around all the fissures that they said opened up everywhere! If they only made a few miles in three days and nights, to give off that much light, it must have been huge!! I've been to volcanoes, it would have to be a full, high eruption to see that far.

strange how the world works I was not 1 sec ago thinking I should U2U robin to see what he thinks of my observations I dont claim to be an expert, Robin knows what I mean we watch.. record and analyze..

I dont know if its a direct effect or more of a combined effect that is causing the Earth to seemingly wake up this year, I am just trying to look at everything and put it all together.

thanks Realtruth I appreciate your opinion.
