So glad we cleared that up as I did not want to launch into a long post about it.

Nibiru does not exist as you say and you can rest assured that if it did, and was close enough to have any effect, the numerous astronomers and more importantly the even more numerous amateur astronomers WOULD have seen it.

No source of earthquakes from that direction I am afraid.

They are not as rare as hen's teeth as there are quite a few (300 km radius) on the list, but only a few every year.

Some distance from the grindy bit and not an area I am familiar with but may Aromaz can shed some light if passing this way?

I am so right. I tried erasing that statement as soon as I wrote it- but damn- it's true- so put it back in.

Last April, after a very boring few weeks of quake-watching, there were two very large quakes off Indonesia. The quakes were strange for various reasons, all of which have been cover by numerous studies. The map of that particular faulting was as messy as a pizza delivery boy's road atlas. Arrows every which way. Those earthquakes did more than just confuse geologists, those two extra big bumps shook the whole damn world and triggered lots and lots of other earthquakes. You could say, these two earthquakes mated and had baby earthquakes.

www.usgs.gov...

I don't know why I have to like reading. The damn study on Wyoming water was what I was after.
Last April I stated that all that activity was interrelated. It was an exceptional moment because it was out of the ordinary and this made the contrast so glaring and obvious. It was more a bit beyond statistics and more than just coincidental. It wasn't just me who was noting at the time that it had been ghostly quiet. I was tiring of my own joke that it was like a war movie or something where a person notes it's a little "too" quiet. Gosh, scientist should stick to science stuff and leave the writing to writers. That analogy in the article comparing it to an apple tree was silly. Apples. Even the Newton story about the apple tree is fiction and never happened. What's the deal with the apple tree??? I digress.

Last April the whole world was resonating as if all the church's bells were ringing at once. Almost as if a message was being passed from one watchtower to the next in vast chain forts. I think this study is important because before this admission of guilt, most of the geological community was set on viewing earthquakes as local. For me there was never a debate. I couldn't see how earthquakes and seismic zones would release all that energy in isolation. They don't. It is obvious when you have a thrust-fault that causes a tsunami. That wave can travel right around the world. So, how can seismic waves pass 'round and 'round like the Sumatra quake and nothing happen elsewhere? Even if it's not a large push, it's still a shove that sends a body down over a cliff. Sometimes a nudge is enough.

But more important that the notion that earthquakes don't like borders and zones, is that it demonstrates to me that all things are in one way or another, inter-connected and interrelated.

So, maybe everything is connected. Like that African quake. Just for fun I looked at the satellite map. It appears there's lots of farming in the area. I was looking for mines and other activity. Because we can't assume all earthquakes are natural. At first I thought it was a clear cut forest. No.

But with farming we have irrigation. Especially in a hot Africa. So. Maybe the earthquake was from a depleted aquifer. Who knows? Right?

Oh, here's that report on Pavillion, Wyoming...

www.usgs.gov...


One last thought. Yes, after the two biggies in Indonesia, there was an uptick in activity all over the place. But what about the quiet before hand. There is the before, the during, and the after.

So, the question must be asked. Was it all part of a larger dynamic?
In the quiet period, was the cessation of normal activity from a force that was, let's say, holding onto the faults in a tight grip?

Then, when that force release it's hold, did this set off that coupling near Banda Aceh?

I think the report missed the point. They even ask themselves, why is this important. Their answer was unimaginative. Because they have to recalculate their risk assessments??

Didn't Einstien say imagination was important?

www.mnn.com...

And talk about quiet. Ha!
I'll tell you what's quiet. The eastern united states. Okie. nothing. arkansas, just a couple of teeny ones near NMSZ. texas, hmmm did they stop drilling?

maybe because there's a natural gas glut...???

Oh, wait. This is a very good article on the USGS reports...

esciencenews.com...

and here's a good description of the dynamics of the 8.6 and 8.2 movement.

esciencenews.com...

I didn't need records and statics to tell me that week was weird. One of the joys of being Autistic is my reaction to change. I'm so wrecked now, I've become a giant alarm siren whenever there's any change in my life. I have watched these chart thingys long enough to know what's normal. Normal doesn't always mean good. I could get used to chaos as long as it is normal and unchanging. That's why people will stay in abusive situations. It's known. We are afraid of the unknown because we can conclude that things could get even worse, so why not just settle with the known no matter how bad.

It's too bad I can't go back and think through the events as they transpired. I'm sucking down 1500 kilometers of change and it's making my sick. Too sick to become nostalgic. Survival doesn't allow you to write down history at the time it's occurring. Oh well.

it's too quiet. ha

Wow Eric, I just finished reading and thoroughly enjoying your post to see the Mag 6.9 in Alaska. You were right on the money about "it being too quiet".

Welcome back. I've missed reading your musings.


Take care,
Olivine

Wow.... these big quakes on both the north and south ends of the west coast, coupled with all the moderate quakes in the middle of Cascadia, not to mention the huge swarm at the Salton sea, makes me very jittery

I absolutely love how quick some of you are at reporting these earthquakes. Saw the 6.9 in Alaska posted here before the media said anything! Thank you all so very much for keeping up the information fight.

Bang on, it is nice to read a post that questions the why. Everything is interconnected, it has to be isn't that the law of physics? For each action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. When you look at the seizmos when a large quake happens you can see it register all over the world in varying mags, so what has that wave done to the stability of the plates there?

earthquake.usgs.gov...

The sun, the weather, the earth changes, all related. I have also noted that EQ's have toned down in magnitude (let's keep em under 6 and 5) and wonder what the hell is going on, too many quakes downgraded or not registering on USGS? I like your direction...

EMSC just dropped it to 5.8 mb which is barely a 6 Mw.

Who is right and who is wrong?

 


OK, I posted the and went back to look and they (EMSC) just upped it to 6.9 Mw!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WTH is going on???

It's just the automatic software. They get tricked by the size of the jolt felt locally by their instrumentation, but as soon as it tries to triangulate a location--it's not possible--so they retract the info. No conspiracy this time.



Looking at the phase data, I bet the magnitude of this quake will be downgraded, maybe even as far as 6.6..have to wait for the revisions.

USGS are saying 6.2 mb which only equates to about 6.36 Mw. They also have 6.6 ML which equates to 6.37 Mw so where in the heck do they get 6.9?

By that reckoning it should be max 6.4 Mw

 

Oh look what I just found

Potsdam 6.4
