They are concerned because there are a large number of quakes happening in a small area that also happens to be volcanically active, or at least they worry it could become active

i don't get it, the earthquakes are in Nevada and Long Valley is in CA, so why are people worried about the volcano activating?? i don't know anything about this so that's why im asking, if the volcano woke up wouldn't the earthquakes be in Cali? not in Nevada?

Don't know if this might be related, but the Hawthorne Army Bomb Disposal Yard is just 5 miles north-east of the epicenter of the swarm. Check it out on Google Earth.

There is some interesting information here.

Seems that the swarm is continuing.

Not that I wish to continue the bickering and arguments but I would like to comment on this:


No its not. Its the truth. All opinions are not created equal, and while education is not a guarantee your opinion will be right or the best, or better than a skilled and self educated lay person, education is an indication of some basic level of competence. Hence all those tests and stuff.


Regrettably these days that is often not the case as the standards of education worldwide have fallen drastically with the introduction of 'marking course work' in place of 'examinations' and the 'no one cam fail' attitude in place of 'get your arse in gear or you won't make it'.

Nowadays they do what we did for O-levels as A-levels and what we did as A-levels as University undergraduates. The number of A passes goes up steadily each year as 'little johnny cannot be seen to fail' and with it the standard is demeaned each year.

As another poster commented these days a great interest in a subject can net you as much and more than a formal education in a subject and in addition allows you the freedom of considering other alternatives. Other than obvious practical work in scientific subjects, these days much of university research is done on the net, and much of the 'course work' is just rehashes of other peoples work. Regrettably this is the same with many scientific papers these days as well. As a society we are blighted by the Wikipedia 'no original research' attitude, an attitude prevalent on ATS as well and enforced by the 'pictures or it didn't happen' attitude. (Which in the case of UFOs is relevant
)

If someone like TA, Zorgon or me for example wishes to make a subject like earthquakes and volcanoes their 'hobby' (I hate that description) then you can rest assured that even without my limited geology background they will become as expert - in a narrower field of study - as many of the so called experts out there.

Another poster commented on the way that the Church of XYZ, be it Geology or anything else, looks down on people outside the mainstream, but many times these outsiders are proven right. This was what I was saying about the freedom to explore and expand.

TA has a good knowledge of earthquakes and volcanoes and [apologies TA) whilst he comes over as a bit more excited than me I would listen to what he has to say, and would disagree if I felt he was wrong. This i this way we learn.

As an aside it is a fact that many of the greatest entrepreneurs were not from the ranks of the educational elite. Formal education stifles thinking in my opinion.


Some beliefs are based on absolute rubbish, scientifically, and to pretend that in any of the sciences "all beliefs are equally valid" is just ridiculous. Science doesnt work that way. And its not arrogance to point out that fact. Its truth.


And some so called science is based on complete rubbish, and yes it does work that way often when it is hijacked by agendas and the money makers.

Lol, i know why they are concerned but the guy i replied that to seems to think there is nothing to be concerned about.....I guess i should have quoted what he was saying....Thank you tho for your response!...If i didn't know you just let me know!!

I concur, and to add I was once told this...

I asked an 'expert' once how long it takes to become an expert, he told me 10,000 hours and smiled.

It wasn't until many years later that I recognised the sarcasm.

Now back to this wonderful thread, another quake, 1.8 17 mins ago.

I realize your question was directed more at the "It's never gonna happen" crowd, but...

At this point, they're mainly concerned because it's a previously unknown/unmapped fault.

It's also close to an area that has a history of volcanic activity, being near a rather large caldera and all.

Why am I concerned or interested you might ask?

Well, because I'm practically on top of it, and natural disasters have killed, what ..half a million people in the last ten years?
It's a fascinating subject, and regardless of what anyone thinks mother nature can be both awesome and unpredictable.

No layman or scholar ever warned me THIS was going to happen, yet there I was.



Part of being alive is having some idea what's going on around you, and many of us enjoy discussing one of my favorite topics.

Sensational sometimes? Sure, maybe a bit... but I'll never tire of it.



Earthquake Activity Continues Near Hawthorne


Graham Kent, Director of the UNR Seismology Lab says the quakes are not happing directly on a fault line it’s difficult to say how big they might get. He says if they were along the Walker Lake fault it wouldn’t be unreasonable to expect a quake as large as a magnitude 7.0. Graham also says the activity could shift suddenly. “"We could be looking at Hawthorne, and the next big earthquake could happen in Reno in a couple hours,” warns Kent. “So we always have to be prepared.”


Six earthquakes jolt Hawthorne area today; seismological lab sending equipment to focus on quakes

“If we get our assets a little closer we can do a better job of understanding where it’s at right now — just the geometry, what’s the potential size and orientation,” said Graham Kent, director of the seismology lab. With more seismometers, the lab will better determine if it is rupturing on a single plane or multiple planes, he said. It appears the quakes are coming from a previously unmapped fault, but Kent said as the earthquake in Haiti showed, unmapped faults can produce major quakes.

The earthquakes are happening somewhat close to the caldera. While they are technically in different states I believe that they are only about 100 miles apart or less.

Another quake - 2.6 about 8 minutes ago.
