Welcome to the discussion! Love the question....okay, I'll bite.
I envision it as a energy cycle, if that makes sense. It gains momentum as it 'comes back around'. If you were to go with my magma chamber
theory...you have to picture a large tub of water. If you were to tip it slowly back and forth, the water would then slosh from side to side. Even
if you continue to tip it at the same angle and speed, the energy being produced would grow and eventually the slosh would get bigger, finally
spilling out the sides.
What does it mean? Again...pure speculation, I see it as a build up and increase in energy which is going to, at some point, lead to a climax and
release of said energy. Be it a mega quake, volcanic activity or perhaps both.
When will it be? THAT is the real question. We all know it is going to happen. Experts say this century, which is no time at all, geologically
speaking. These deep tremors haven't been monitored for very long so it is hard to know what this shortening in the cycle means, but I see it as a
count-down. That it jumped ahead by 3 months is just a year is quite alarming to me. Also, that it never really seemed to stop (IMO) this whole past
year. It wasn't just bursts...it was almost constant, and I've seen a direct correlation to quake activity and an up-tick in odd quakes in wierd
I think it is coming (mega quake)....I have absolutely no scientific reasons to back up this statement, but my gut tells me it will be in the next
year or two. I hope I am wrong. This is one of the reasons I am so interested in this deep tremor study, because I think it might be key to an early
warning. It could save hundreds of thousands of lives.
