What does the Coast Guard know?

Get your sea front lots now before the rush...

I have a question that may be way out there but you seem very knowledgeable in the subject. Could the swarms, other earthquakes, or the disturbances to activate a volcano be cause by depleting an aquifer. The reason I ask this is because the Ogallala Aquifer is what is often used to water crops in the "bread basket" and is becoming depleted. I was unsure if this would work like a hourglass with sinking created causing a pull towards the outsides. I know that the fault lines give and take all the time yet wondered if this would aggravate anything causing an increase in activity. I worry if it can with summer coming there will be more water removed at a constant rate.

If this is too far fetched please just let me know I am a flake, I was studying the aquifer for class and noticed limited articles on the depletion and pollution to the aquifer. There are other aquifers yet this one is the largest in North America. Thank You.

still find it curious that most of the us volcanos have seismic activity in there neighberhood....

Read this evening on George Ure's site ( UrbanSurvival.com) about a hint quake, occuring at 05:30-06:00 UTC today, which would signal where a big quake would possiblly occur. He updated his free site on a Sunday, which his highly uncommon, and said the below statement and another item. I saw the hint quake hit in ur thread area, so I pass along the information.

2.0 05:36 UTC two miles N. of Warm Springs, NV

Using that crackpot theory (Clif's too sensible for this kind of thing, lol so this is my own monster) I alluded to in this weekend's Peoplenomics, I've been poring over charts all day and if my eyes aren't deceiving me, the earthquake around 05:30-06:00 UTC time tomorrow morning may be the hint where the Big One will be. If Arkansas bumps and the levy is blown this afternoon, odds favor New Madrid, but if somewhere else, Nevada, for example, hasta la California or some such sneaks back into the cards - or the Pacific Northwest. More in the morning per usual, whatever that is anymore.

Well I think you are going to need to reduce that question down a bit to a specific area. It's just too broad a question with too many qualifiers. As to the aquifer you mentioned, it is mid country, and does not appear to be connected to the Long Valley area. So I can't see how that relates to this thread.

lol, but it doesn't mean you are a flake. In fact, water may play a role in some of these quakes if it is water heating up from magma, creating pressure above it which in turn fractures rock. But hey, according to the USGS, it is not volcanic activity near Hawthorne, so...

Recent activity in Cali... building up to a big one??

Thank you for answering, I was unsure how much it would impact the actual land. I noticed how many there were just in the US alone and that most are becoming depleted at a fast rate. Could limited water in the NV area create a spike in temperature to create more activity to the volcano that is supposedly not reacting. I am trying to learn as much as I can and am not having too much luck online yet grabbed some text from the local library. There seems to be little information on all possibilities for the heightened activity going on just about everywhere right now.

Note we have gone back to a smaller/deeper quake pattern? This is a change, so I will be standing by to see what it means.

A 4.1 just slammed the Hawthorne swarm:

Right on it too.

NSL has it at 4.2 now, and 4.5 km depth.

0 km (~0 mile) set by location program

How is this possible?

Thanks for the clarification on Chouet and seismic signature. You are absolutely right! This is info everybody interested in knowing whether a volcano is going to erupt soon should look at.

I am sorry if this link has been posted before, I just found it really interesting.

The link is to a documentary about the last nevada swarm back in 2008, worth a look me thinks.
