Vapour pressure as relating to cavitation refers to the vapour pressure in equilibrium conditions and can therefore be more accurately defined as the equilibrium (or saturated) vapour pressure.

Exactly....that's why I wanted to post it....because if there is anything that happens....even a small quake...we can document it. I'm going to document each new one I see like that and maybe something will come of it...who knows?

This just took an entirely new ominous turn.
If it were possible to think of the Earth as a giant fluid ball, then I would guess that the sounds are leaked resonances from non-inertial cavitation (as described above), while the 'boom's heard recently are a result of cavity collapses.
But, wait... the Earth is essentially a giant fluid ball...from the mantle down....
