Cool!

What's goin on with this uptick in Nevada and the Cascadia ( Washington, Oregon, Alaska)?

Can't get unglued to this thread!!!!

Watch seismic tracking from all over the world and you will see upticks in activity and downticks. The problem is that a few people on this site see something and start throwing out these panic posts when they have zero knowledge of geology.

2 years cumulative magnitude 3+



2 years magnitudes 3+





Looks nothing extremely out of the ordinary as far as I can see. It has been there before and probably will again.

I will see if I can do some better graphs tomorrow with some energy figures if it is still chuntering away to itself.

Probably just all the old test sites collapsing

For reference and peace of mind, can I enquire as to your length of service in this field please, Kro32?
What qualifications do you hold?

Masters degree in geology from Arizona University where I currently work however not in the field. I am currently working on degrees for both history and political science.

I have studied the sp crater and sunset crater here in arizona along with other geological formations, particularly the uranium mines in the Grand Canyon and the possible effects they had on local geography but my area of specialization in geology was streams and their erosive factors. I've also studied a bit in Ireland and Costa rica but due to the ability to further my education at very low cost I no longer work in the field. However I do not bring up points that I do not know with certainty on this site in regards to the field of geology.

Puerto Rico looks relatively quiet compared to 2009/2010. It is only a small difference but you can see the cumulative flattens off a little.



Now as to whether that is good or bad, that is another matter.

Madness, pure simple madness!


Fancy changing from one of the greatest subjects in the world to history (slightly boring) and political science? What! That sounds like a death sentence to me. In fact I think faced with that choice I would have to chose death. :shk: political science :shk:

lol,,, i updated my earlier post with a bit more information if you care to see more qualifications. However working for a university allows me to further my education on their dime pretty much so it was too hard to pass up. Geology in case your wondering doesn't really pay that well either unless you go into the military or work for a oil company.

It could be the Salton Seismic Imagine Project.
earthquake.usgs.gov...

They are setting off explosions along the San Andreas fault line in order to record the earthquakes they generate.

This project will generate and record seismic waves, similar to sound waves, that move downward into the Earth and are bent (refracted) or echoed (reflected) back to the surface. SSIP will acquire data in a series of intersecting lines that cover key areas of the Salton Trough. The sources of sound waves will be detonations (shots) in deep boreholes, designed to create energy equivalent to
magnitude 1–2 earthquakes.

earthquake.usgs.gov...
I'm not certain if you would feel these effects in Nevada, however. Just offering a possibility. Not to mention that these people are freaking messed up to be doing this $^#&!
Peace and One Love

No, the real problem is that people with masters degrees spend their time with noses in textbooks instead of paying day to day attention at a constantly changing environment around them- which can become deadly at any time.

Perhaps you should wait a year from now when they finally decide to print it in another textbook that there was harmonic tremor detected at a super volcano. Of course by then you might be buried in 20 feet of ash.

Me, I'll stick to GEE and monitor every pulse and heartbeat. Cause when the day comes, I'll be long gone instead of sticking around to notify people like you. I live, you die. But that's how it goes I guess. Have fun in your books.

I stressed my specific concerns as to the nature and frequency of these quakes. Not two weeks ago. Not yesterday. Only when I saw a very rapid increase in frequency. All you've done is express your master's degree.

And btw, activity now picking back up again.

And Taiwan just took a pretty good jolt.

That's not in a textbook yet. It's not even on USGS yet. But I knew.

OP started a thread to bring attention to the ongoing Nevada swarm - it didn't read like a "panic" post.
And you really don't know OP's level of knowledge to state that he has ZERO knowledge of geology. C'mon, lighten-up.

Actually those of us with master's degree's or phd's study the course of earthquakes or volcanoes over thousand and hundreds of thousands of years in any particular location. And what your seeing is nothing out of the ordinary however it will look like that to someone who doesn't have enough education to decipher what all the data is telling you compared to other trends throughout history.

I for one like TA's style and reports and I especially like when he's unsure how he asks others to check too. I was aware of Nevada quakes through my USGS observations but totally unaware of the swarm or caldera so TA has taught me some new info. What I don't fully understand is why people feel a need to bash on him for drawing attention to seismic events that he finds disturbing, if you don't dig his message...Tune out and follow the political trail instead or whatever floats your boat. I know diddly squat about geology but I'm smart enough to recognize someone who is both knowledgeable and passionate about the field and TA is the man! Just my 2c

I can deduce his level of knowledge by his questioning whether this super-volcano is activating from studying some recent seismic readings. And the title very much is a panic post since when Long Valley does eventually go you will be able to measure the deaths in the hundreds of thousands.

No, but it is typical of the OP to imply that there's something greater going on than the layman might think, when I just have a feeling he doesn't really know that. I'm certainly no expert, but as was said these spikes or "swarms" don't necessarily mean anything of great importance is pending. This is all well and good on ATS, but I have a feeling that on a geology or seismology forum, he'd get his lunch handed to him.

This poster did this same thing a few weeks ago with Yellowstone...trying to spread fear and I had to totally debunk that one. When the op of this post gets formal education and actually studies active volcanoes for awhile he can debate me. Knowing how to access sites on the web does not make you qualified to make ration judgements.

Did anyone with a masters degree predict the Japanese earthquake?
