Hmmm...

So far it's been pretty quiet tonight...

I guess we'll see if lack of drilling activity over the weekend pans out...

I'm also waiting on any Lunar influences...

i have followed this thread since post #1 and i have to wonder how you do it? i have never expearienced an earthquake..you people have to deal with this daily, hourly..sometimes by the minute!!! how do you sleep at night? i cant imagine and some say this is normal?? i cant say my position is much better, my world is filled with sleeping volcanoes. lets hope the fuse sputters and dies..

Hey Puterman, what's with the 'negative' spikes?

Hi all,

I have been away for a while and got caught up. In the attempt to try to find an answer as to why these earthquakes are occurring I found some things. Now, in the spirit of this, a conspiracy site, I decided to throw some things together, as outlandish as they may sound, as a theory even just to rule it out. I apologize if it is the stupidest thing you have ever heard. Please be gentle with me but go ahead and rip the theory apart.


If you take what the Gov. learned here;

Fallon, Nevada
The Shoal event was part of the VELA UNIFORM program. It was intended to produce a better understanding of the seismic detection of underground nuclear explosions.
(39.200001°N, 118.381001)

and add what they learned here;

Green Valley, Colorado
The aim of Project Rulison was to determine if natural gas could be easily liberated from underground regions. The test had a yield of 43-kilotons. After the test, the natural gas that was extracted was determined to be too radioactive to be sold commercially.
(39.487085°N, 107.95166°W)

and here;

Rifle, Colorado
The Rio Blanco test site had three simultaneously detonated 30 kiloton bombs, each at the bottom of a shaft more than a mile deep. The blast was marginally successful in causing the gas to collect in the cavity and fissures produced by the bombs, however the gas was too radioactive to be sold commercially.
(37.978845°N, 108.303223°W)

and here;

Farmington, New Mexico
This was the site of the first U.S. underground nuclear experiment for the stimulation of low productivity gas resources. On December 10, 1967 a 29 kiloton nuclear explosive was detonated at a depth of 4222 feet. The GASBUGGY shot was part of the overall Operation PLOWSHARE (Atoms for Peace) program.
(36.677876°N, 107.20794°W)

(Above Sources www.atomicarchive.com... )

Improved the process and reran the VELA UNIFORM program here;

There are several geologic faults in the area, but none associated with the New Madrid fault, the large seismic fault in the region and one that was the source of an estimated 7.0-magnitude earthquake in 1811. And there was another historic flurry of earthquakes in 1982, 15 miles south of Guy. Geologists know it as the Enola Swarm, responsible for 15,000 quakes within a year's time, followed by more shaking in 2001.
( articles.cnn.com...:US )

The 7.0 in 1811 could be regarded as natural thus pushed aside. However, if the 1982 swarm is attributed to the VELA UNIFORM program rerun the question becomes why. The area is high in gas however according to this;

rockyweb.cr.usgs.gov...

The USGS says the entire areas bedrock is shale, lake bed, glacial rut, gravel, and sand with some limestone thrown in for good measure. Therefore it all crumbles,breaks apart easily, and slivers.

After the test they decide it was worth the risk of major earthquake to extract the natural gas, contract with the companies for removal and proceeded in 2010. The more open space created, with the bedrock being so fragile creates instabilities.

Why? Money on the surface. Below the surface the Government knows of the impending catastrophic activity to come and an estimation as to how long it will last. They built underground cities to survive this but they need a vast supply of natural gas to maintain until the surface can be retaken, and that even if the public found out there isn't even enough time left to get it into court(knowing Lawyers and there ability to stretch things out) or stop it.

Ok all go ahead and tear it apart so it can be added to the list of discussed.

Thanks

Hmmm...asymmetrical waves?

I wonder if it's a calibration issue or if it's measuring some kind of vertical/slip disturbance...

I have read this thread from the beginning and one thing keeps gnawing at the back of my head. (and may I just add first that a good researcher always keeps an open mind) It has been stated that this area in Arkansas is an ancient caldera; one that even produces diamonds. Yellowstone is also a caldera, albeit, not quite so ancient. Since Yellowstone is a caldera and there are earthquake swarms there, is there a "possibility" that this may also be a natural phenomenon, but one that we have never seen before simply because we haven't been on this earth long enough to witness it ?? OR is it unlikely because of the type of geological structure of the earth there? Or is this not a possibility at all and why not??


Agreed. Hot Springs, Arkansas is quite famous for the "hot springs," and abundance of quartz crystal. The Crater of Diamonds State Park is also about 70 miles or so from there. Talimena also is rumored to have giant quartz under the ground which is supposed to have some sort of purpose or focus of "earth energy." I wonder how much quartz is in Arkansas and if it resonates and quakes which coincides with other fault zones. Interesting to say the least.

I remember reading that earthquake lights were thought to be related to quartz under pressure as it is piezoelectric. Geologists state that the remainder of the rocks surrounding the quartz acts as an insulator and grounding out any current generated. And they also maintain that the amount of current generated is not sufficient to induce the sort of luminescent display that is reported.

I think it's also important to remember that electricity is integrally tied to magnetism although I am uncertain if this aspect would have any effect in this phenomena.

Hi folks, finally getting back to work, sorry gone so long. The following is a test to see if my compilation will work.
It seemed to be requested some pages back for a list of links that covered the first 40 pages or so. After testing the links and going through every page again, here is the test, if it works, I will post the entire list.
I do ask the mods to be considerate of the nature for which the links are being presented.

It is to provide research resources for those just joining us to get themselves up to speed with the plethora of info being provided. To those providing: this is the triaged list.

This is a test:

Tech guys, this is as concise as I could make it. If some of your links didn't make it, please repost those you feel of utmost importance and I will add to the masterlist, and will continue to add as we go along. If at some point if some one would reference when I should repost the list, I will.
Please note I did not include links to threads, you must continue to post those as your point of reference during the discussions. I also did not include the past seismos. But there are links to reports that list those.

ok then... this is not a test, please review and become informed.

That is not your typical looking quake.

And just in case anyone thinks this is all over...it isn't. Thank God it has slowed wayyyy down and no big ones so far awhile...but there is definately still a whole lotta 'noise'. I am just hoping that last 4.3 releaved enough pressure to quiet it down for awhile. I just don't like the above seismo.

Edit to add: I just noticed it is set at 28 microvolts...probably why its looking so much bigger

I had asked a few pages back a question of just how far away from the epic zone of quakes could gases be released up the Madrid Fault line.............

I reported that a dozen or so geese had "fallen" from the sky and it was baffling the officials........

Now they are reporting over 200 geese are dead and many others sick..........


At least 200 geese have died for unknown reasons along the southwestern shores of Lake Erie while others are struggling to hold their heads up, stay upright and fly, Ohio officials said on Friday.

Don't hold your breath for the government to come out and tell us that "gases" are being released along the Madrid Fault line.................

If other bird deaths are found this weekend..............we should take it as a "warning"

I'm in the Memphis area and haven't noticed anything unusual like shaking or anything. I know there have been some predictions of "the big one" in the past, but lived here for 20+ years and only a few minor shakes from time to time. Nothing more than a few seconds, though. I'm from East Tennessee and there was actually one that woke my family up one night when I was a teenager. It was reported on the news the next morning.

The first two of these images are not showing earthquakes. There are some very minor ones at the start of the trace but the bit fluffy ones are definitely not quakes. Compare to the seismo in my signature.

This looks exactly like the noise that we get in Yellowstone from time to time.

Westcoast and other Yellowstoners will understand when I say that these look like the the 'demon voices'

There seems to be some sort of correlation with these solar flares. Unfortunately these recorders not only are not public they do not even appear in the IRSI DMC so there is no way I can have a listen.

What should be done is to compare the 'interference' with the times of increased KP index but I don't have the time for such as massive task just now. The garlic will not plant itself!

A couple of pages back in this thread I posted a map I made from Google Earth with all the bird/animal deaths plotted out.
Since reading your post I have input the location of the 200 Geese. New image below:


Second map with all bird/animal deaths and all Arkansas 2.5+ quakes from 17th Feb to present:

As you can see there is a big blob of quakes and the 3.5 in Alabama.

Hey Puterman, I'm new here and really don't know how everyone embeds things or links things to their threads, so I thought I would just tell you what I saw. RSOE is showing a 4.3 quake this morning 37 miles from Little Rock, but it isn't showing on the USGS. I haven't seen anyone reference this quake today. Did it really happen?? Thanks!

RSOE is really slow at inputting data and also updating things. They seem to get there info wrong sometimes as it seems this is the case here.
The 4.3 isnt on the USGS, i think they mean the 4.1 on the 18th.

Nearly 60 small and moderate earthquakes struck Arkansas since Feb. 15, 2011, the most recent a magnitude 4.3 earthquake this morning 37 miles away from Little Rock. Many of the earthquakes are large enough to be felt. These earthquake swarms are not that unusual for the region, said Harley Benz, scientist in charge at the U.S. Geological Survey National Earthquake Information Center. Central Arkansas has a history of earthquake activity with a swarm of thousands of earthquakes smaller than magnitude 4.5 in the early 1980s and another swarm in 2001, known as the Enola earthquake swarms. Citizens are encouraged to report any experience feeling the earthquake(s) at the USGS Did You Feel It? website. The earthquake swarm that began Tuesday may continue. This area is slightly south of and most likely related to similar ongoing activity involving hundreds of small earthquakes near Guy, Ark., from August 2010 to present. Scientists do not know why swarms start, why they stop, or how long to expect them to last. The possibility of a larger earthquake cannot be discounted, but none of the other swarms have caused any reason to expect a future earthquake large enough to cause significant damage in central Arkansas. USGS scientists have been working with their partners at the Center for Earthquake Research and Information (CERI) at the University of Memphis and the Arkansas Geological Survey (AGS) to carefully monitor this situation. They have deployed a local network of stations an array that measure seismicity in the Greenbrier-Enola area to augment regional seismic stations. The CERI and AGS array and personnel are the best source of the most current information about the new earthquake swarm. The AGS and CERI are investigating whether the earthquakes occur naturally or are related to human activities. Earthquake swarms are common east of the Rocky Mountains; other Central or Eastern U.S. swarms, however, have not involved as many small earthquakes as the central Arkansas swarms. Most of North America east of the Rocky Mountains has infrequent earthquakes that can strike anywhere at irregular intervals. The causes of earthquakes are not understood well enough to reliably make short-term predictions.
