Originally posted by zworld Originally posted by tmiddlebrook36 More info. This is an intercept of an email: t, I remain skeptical. But if there is new data and studies out there discussing the reasons for this increased awareness of a potential big one, please share this with us. Im sure you could U2U someone on this thread that would post this data for us and you. But the bottom line is, the plates are in motion and heating up. Big ones.....probably everywhere soon as far as I can tell. In fact they already are happening. And all that released pressure is going somewhere else. The tohoku EQs in Japan sent a massive chunk of energy our way via the lithosphere. Both the Cascadia subduction zone (CSZ) and the New Madrid Fault (NMF) have been absorbing energy for 200 to 300 years without really moving. And move they must. Its the law of earth physics. I give the CSZ a year. It will set off the San Andreas and other localized fault systems. When these go, so goes the NMF shortly afterwards. Im just thinking out loud. The thing I use as a predictor is Edgar Cayce. In a trance he said that the big one along the CA coast would happen 3 months after the second sister erupted. Two famous volcanoes are considered the two sisters by most (and for the life of me I cant remember which two), but I like a different theory that says that the two sisters are actually Mt St Helens and Mt St Helena. Helens blew, and it's well known that the geysers area north of Mt St Helena is the most seismically active area in the lower 48. If Mt St Helena starts acting up, sell the ranch quick.

**** Closest post to date. And, yes, I do log on to read what people are writing as I cannot be responsible for information being entirely leaked. You should ALL doubt me. In science, skepticism is the most priceless position. Nothing came from our MB yesterday, (simply stated: Morning Briefing). People are trying to piece a ton of information together and this science is so very new and the data sometimes contradicting, so you can imagine their hesitation. Bottom line; there is specific and credible information supporting theories being presented, modified, and redetermined on literally an hourly basis. Please reread GESS. Some of you are nearly spot on in theory. I remain skeptical myself, however I have been around this world for many years and never before has science pointed in one direction more. Stay prepared.

Thank you for responding....and I appreciate the fact that you understand the criticism.
I urge you to take a look at a thread I have been authoring for awhile now, involving a theory that ties into what you are warning us of, I believe:
Putting it all together.......
Essentially, I think that the CSZ extends all the way down through california...with the seismic zone being just east of the center. That the San Andreas fault is a SYMPTOM of this, and so is any activity along it. That the spreading, or 'unzipping' of said fault will occur prior to or as a result of the CSZ slipping...leading to a coast-wide event.
I have further speculated that the cascade range volcanos, the Oregon calderas and California calderas are all linked in a way not exposed (as far as I know) and would also be directly affected by said event.
In the past week I have further speculated (based on recent quakes and now your info) that the new madrid could aslo very possibly be tying into this...that the stresses and energy involved translates throughout the whole plate. That under this stress, it is going to give at the weakest point...the New Madrid.
I would appreciate any of your thoughts on this...or if you think I am wasting my time or need to direct my energies elsewhere.
I welcome you to U2U me or any other established member here at ATS if you want to say more "off the boards".

New Evidence Indicates Continuing Uplift at Three Sisters, Oregon
Update -- March 18, 2002
Scientist's from the U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) Cascades Volcano Observatory and Central Washington University, in cooperation with staff from the U.S. Forest Service's (USFS) Willamette and Deschutes National Forests, have confirmed that slow uplift of a broad area centered about 5 kilometers (3 miles) west of South Sister volcano in the central Oregon Cascade Range is continuing at approximately the same rate as previously reported (i.e., a maximum rate of approximately 1 inch/year). The uplift was discovered by a satellite radar imaging technique during the spring of 2001, which showed that the ground surface had risen about 10 cm (4 inches) from 1996 to 2000. In May 2001, USGS and Pacific Northwest Seismograph Network (PNSN) scientists installed a seismometer and a GPS instrument near the center of uplift to monitor earthquake activity and ground movement, respectively (see Figure 1). These deployments were followed by surveys of ground deformation, spring-water chemistry, and volcanic gas emissions in Summer 2001 to ascertain whether the uplift was continuing and to determine its likely cause. In addition, satellite radar images for 2000-2001 were analyzed and compared to the 1996-2000 results.
The September 2001 ground-tilt and GPS surveys, when compared to similar surveys made in 1985 and 1986, are consistent with the radar results (i.e., the same model that fits the 1996-2001 radar observations also fits the 1986-2001 ground-tilt and GPS observations). This implies that the uplift did not start until sometime after 1996. The most recent radar data confirm that uplift continued through the summer of 2001, and daily data from the continuous GPS station installed in May 2001 show that uplift continues to the present. Meanwhile, seismicity in the area has remained at a low, background level. Analyses of spring-water samples collected in late summer 2001 are similar to those from earlier surveys but isotopic studies of carbon and helium in the most recent samples, which were not done previously, suggest a magmatic source.
Taken together, the ground-deformation, seismic, spring-water chemistry, and gas emission results suggest that uplift is caused by slow accumulation of magma at a depth of 6-7 km (4 miles) beneath the surface. If intrusion of magma were to continue, it could eventually lead to a volcanic eruption; however, an eruption is unlikely without months to years of precursory activity. In addition to continued or accelerating uplift, precursors to an eruption would include earthquakes, typically swarms of small events generated by fracturing of rock as magma moves upward, and large emissions of volcanic gases, such as carbon dioxide, which is released from the magma. At present, earthquake and gas emissions remain at low, background levels while steady uplift continues. USGS and PNSN scientists are working with USFS staff to improve monitoring of the area and, with State and local agencies, to develop an emergency-response plan.
At approximately 10 a.m. yesterday (Tuesday, March 23), an ongoing swarm of small earthquakes began in the Three Sisters volcanic center in the central Oregon Cascade Range. This activity poses no immediate threat to the public. As of this morning, the regional seismic network has detected approximately 100 earthquakes ranging in magnitude up to about 1.5. The rate of earthquakes peaked late yesterday and appears to be declining slowly. The earthquakes are occurring in the northeast part of an area centered 5 kilometers (3 miles) west of South Sister volcano in which the ground has been uplifted by as much as 25 cm (about 10 inches) since late 1997. On the basis of multiple lines of evidence, scientists infer that the cause of the uplift is the continuing intrusion of a modest volume of magma (molten rock). The magma appears to be accumulating at a depth of about 7 kilometers (4 miles) below the ground surface and now measures about 40 million cubic meters (about 50 million cubic yards) in volume. Until yesterday, only a few earthquakes have accompanied this process, but scientists have expected that swarms of small earthquakes such as the present one would eventually accompany the uplift. The most likely cause of the earthquakes is small amounts of slippage on faults as the Earth's crust adjusts to the slow ground deformation of the past 7 years. Heat and gases related to the magmatic intrusion have probably caused increases in fluid pressure deep underground, which also helps to trigger minor faulting events.
The processes that have been causing the uplift over the past seven years could eventually lead to shallower intrusion of magma or even to a volcanic eruption; however, both are unlikely without significantly more intense precursory activity. Scientists continue to monitor the situation closely and to evaluate data from field instruments.
Today scientists are deploying another seismometer in order to locate earthquakes more precisely. With the assistance of the Willamette and Deschutes National Forests, additional fieldwork over the next week will fix problems with some field instruments that resulted from the heavy winter snow-pack and will assess sites for new instruments.
