Thanks for posting!
I was just thinking could solar activity have anything to do with earthquakes?
It just seems every time there is a flare or cme that an earthquake occurs somewhere.
just a thought.

Very interseting 3 days after some solar flare bombardments to earths magnetosphere on the 7th /03/2011 ,same as new zealand.www3.nict.go.jp... 2011/test_6.20110307.avi
www3.nict.go.jp...
also source data.www.swpc.noaa.gov...

IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 07/2100Z to 08/2100Z: The geomagnetic field was at quiet to unsettled levels. The M3 event at 07/2012Z mentioned in Part IA produced a proton event at the greater than 10 Mev flux at geosynchronous orbit which is still in progress. Protons crossed event threshold at 08/0120Z and so far have reached a peak flux of 50 pfu at 08/0800Z. The greater than 2 MeV electron flux at geosynchronous orbit reached high levels during the period. IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is expected to be at unsettled to active conditions with isolated periods of minor storm levels for days one and two (09-10 March). The increase in activity is expected due to the effects from the CME associated with the M3 event observed on 07/2012Z. Quiet to unsettled conditions are expected for day three (11 March). The greater than 10 MeV proton event is expected to continue for most of days one and two (09-10 March).

Well so far, seems to be pretty much a "textbook" quake, with the largest aftershock at 5.7 exactly fitting the statistics of large quakes- which state the biggest aftershock is usually the main shock magnitude minus 1.5.

7.2 - 1.5 = 5.7

Let's just hope they doesn't prove to be foreshocks.

Shouldn't there be massive building collapse, etc.?



Mainly due to the epicenter is 250+ miles away from a large city.. The only reason they felt it was due to it being so shallow. Now, if that 7.2 was say, 90 miles deep, Tokyo wouldn't have even noticed it hardly.

Mag 5.1 2011/03/09 06:25:12 UTC 143.067 10.8KM deep OFF THE EAST COAST OF HONSHU, JAPAN

this one just happened about 15 mins ago.

things still keep shaking.

Two more aftershocks just hit back to back. Total sequence looks like this so far:

The quake is just a peace of the puzzle the technology is already out there so why waste that much time on it. They are simply preping regions for larger hits little by little the bigger they get and the hard they fall. Trust your father? I would not because many in our life are sleepers waiting to be activated.

So apparently the Tsunami is only 4 inches high, anyone else hear about this?

I wonder, why the heck do they call them Tsunamis if they're only that high? >_

Remember a tsunami depends upon the type of plate margin. So they would only be possible along divergent or subduction zones, more likely a subduction zone (Japan) where there maybe some depressing or uplifting of the seafloor to displace the ocean and cause a tsunami. Besides its a pretty weak quake for a tsunami, large movements of the sea floor would cause a bigger quake..

Based on the 6's in Chile the 6's in oceana and now this in japan I would say that California's day is coming. All the energy seems to be belting around the ring of fire. Not to mention the million/billions of dead fish washing up there.

Well in addition to the list above, four more aftershocks have hit:
4.7 2011/03/09 12:03:17 38.343 143.105 10.4 OFF THE EAST COAST OF HONSHU, JAPAN
5.1 2011/03/09 11:27:49 38.573 143.146 12.0 OFF THE EAST COAST OF HONSHU, JAPAN
4.7 2011/03/09 10:13:36 38.724 143.099 10.1 OFF THE EAST COAST OF HONSHU, JAPAN
4.8 2011/03/09 08:55:38 38.667 143.055 15.6 OFF THE EAST COAST OF HONSHU, JAPAN

And one of those hit on the other side of the ridge:

So something has activated on the opposite side now, with the ridge in the middle. Somehow, I just don't like the looks of that.

I've been following solar activity in relation to volcanic and seismic activity, and it's really starting to creep me out. If the sun's activity continues on the increase, things are going to get really exciting down here on earth. It's as if the solar system were an ente held together by gravity and communicated by electromagnetic energy, the sun is at the heart of it all. Next Solar MAX march 2013 promises to be of historic intensity, fits real well with the galactic alignment on winter solstice of 2012. The end is near, are you prepared?

You're quite right!, I've been keeping track, sudden changes in solar flux level definitely relavent to volcanic/seismic activity. Keep an eye on the solar activivty.
www.solen.info...
Apparently some sort of electromagnetic shock wave causes an intense impact on the earths em field a few days after a CME is seen. Solar max is still 2 years away, things are going to get worse and the people who live near the fault lines especially the ring of fire are going to notice.

is this going to afect the volcano in the south?
it has been blowing steem for some time now.

It was 6 miles deep. Like all other haarp quakes.

Complete rubbish. The next solar max is going to be a complete damp squib compared to previous ones. I would suggest that doing some homework before making statements like that would be in order.

Take a look at the power wave on this page

Solar cycle 24 has hardly got under way at all. wattsupwiththat.com...

And this one: wattsupwiththat.com...

And direct from NASA:

Current prediction for the next sunspot cycle maximum gives a smoothed sunspot number maximum of about 58 in July of 2013. We are currently over two years into Cycle 24. The predicted size would make this the smallest sunspot cycle in nearly 200 years.

Or how about the forthcoming Grand Minimum. journalofcosmology.com...

So what was it you said?

Next Solar MAX march 2013 promises to be of historic intensity


No I don't think so. Sorry, Doom has been cancelled!
Please call back in 2036 for Apophis.

In addition, what Galactic alignment? We are 50 light years out from the Galactic plane.


Earth won’t physically cross the plane of our Milky Way galaxy in 2012, but Earth will cross the galactic equator in 2012. That’s nothing special! As seen from the sun, Earth does this every year – twice.

Knowledge is good.

That 6.3 is extremely shallow. That one is surely the worst quake.

Are these aftershocks normal? They started out as 5's, then had a few 4's, and now we have 6's?
