Science of the earthquake
Data on magnetic disturbances
The Loma Prieta earthquake was preceded by disturbances in the background magnetic field strength as measured by a sensor placed in Corralitos, California, about 4.5 miles (7 km) from the epicenter. From October 5, a substantial increase in background noise was measured in the frequency range 0.01–10 Hz. The measurement instrument was a single-axis search-coil magnetometer that was being used for low frequency research by Antony C. Fraser-Smith of Stanford University. Signals in the range .01–.5 Hz rose to exceptionally high levels about three hours before the earthquake. Though this pattern gave scientists new ideas for research into potential precursors to earthquakes, more recent studies have cast doubt on the connection, attributing the observations before the Loma Prieta quake to either an unrelated and more geographically widespread magnetic disturbance or to sensor malfunctions.

I just read most of it, but I didn't see anything about it running through Japan... I think you know more about that type of thing than I do. I'm very interested in geology and earthquakes, but it's not my most knowledgable subject (to say the least:lol. I just stand back in awe of you guys and read!edit on 10/27/2011 by StealthyKat because: sp

The following is a brief description which appears on Gordon-Michael Scallion's
FUTURE MAP OF THE UNITED STATES - 1998-2001:
" I ... see a planetary spiritual awakening occurring during the nineties. A vision I've seen for the year 2002 is of a new Earth--reborn--with its people living in harmony with each other... Communities seem to be located more in rural areas than in cities. The air is clean, and there no longer is an ozone hole. I see circular, clustered homes--domes made of a kind of living membrane that provides self-adjusting heating, lighting, and cooling. There are no automobiles, but there does appear to be a new form of public transportation--long, cigar-shaped crafts that move across the ground silently--without wheels. The average life-span has expanded to 150 years because of the Earth's new vibrations and the consciousness of its inhabitants. Telepathy is common between individuals, and between people and animals. There are new flowers, plants, and trees, which provide herbal remedies for this time. Many of the diseases of the twentieth century are gone... Color and sound therapy are the predominant healing modalities. In the year 2002 the world has become a lunar society guided by intuition.
As part of a Navy-sponsored study to determine how natural noises interfere with satellite communications, Fraser- Smith and graduate student Arman Bernardi had been recording ULF radio waves for two years from Corralitos, a site in the Santa Cruz Mountains remote from ULF noise generated by the Bay Area Rapid Transit system. With a 6-foot antenna mounted on the ground, they monitored ULF radio waves produced primarily by solar wind as it distorts the earth's electromagnetic field, creating "background noise" that disrupts communications. Twelve days before the Loma Prieta earthquake Fraser- Smith's detector recorded a large signal. The signal remained high until three hours before the earthquake, when it shot up even further. "The signal was off scale, 20 to 30 times bigger than what we usually measure," Fraser-Smith said. "We nearly shut down the Corralitos system because we thought something was wrong with it." Then the earthquake hit, disabling the system for eight hours.
There is some intriguing research about whether large earthquakes are associated with ionospheric changes caused by electromagnetic signals released by the crushing of rock crystalline structures. If so, then this might be a mechanism for major earthquake prediction.

first want to thank you for replying to me on the quackwatch thread yesterday. I appreciate it. Just have got sidetracked here and not been back there.
Yeah, that Loma Prieta incident was very interesting. Nice when scientists get something they don't expect.
Would you agree that whether TM is genuine or not (in terms of being involved in this group attached to JPL), s/he is probably not wrong in saying "they" are doing a lot more in terms of quake prediction research than is being made general public knowledge?
The California Magnetic Network (CalMagNet) concept involves placing Ultra-Low-Frequency (ULF) based sensors along the major faults throughout California as a pilot network that will lay the groundwork for similar networks throughout the world. The data collected will allow researchers not only to validate the technique but also to provide data for the development of earthquake warning programs.
