Thanks Puters....I think?

There's a wicked quake coming to the Bay Area, California soon, I can feel it.

Some may not consider this to be earthquake related, however is my opinion it is.

Solar cycles, 11 year and 55 year, and the 18 year Grand Conjunctions and various other movements all combine to affect the earth, and the earthquakes.

I believe we have just passed the top of the 55 year cycle where Mag 9s occur and are setting of on the downward slope to a period of relative calm such as in the mid 70s.

It seems that we have possibly passed solar max.

I will say that again. It seems that we may have passed solar max

So not only was it not detected it is only now becoming apparent. The number of sunspots does NOT bode well for the back end of the cycle. With effectively hardly any at Solar Max we could be seeing many spotless days next and future years.

This will affect the world temperature. Yes the sunspots affect temperature not CO2 despite what you may be told, or believe. We are going into a Dalton type minimum. Ice will increase, glaciers will advance, CO2 will continue going up for a while, and in places like Iceland the pressure on the sub glacial volcanoes will increase resulting in more earthquakes.

Generally however as I said the level of activity will decrease and by 2030 will be at a low level and it will be much colder. By 2060 it will have picked up again as we top the next 55 year cycle and the warmists will be praising St Gore and braying (again) about how runaway global warming will kill us all.

(just in case, this is not being serious)

On a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is just plain old wicked and 10 is rip roaring mindblowing you will never believe it wicked, how wicked would wicked be exactly?

Are we talking, in magnitude terms, of a Mag 5, 6 7, 10? and is your 'feeling' different from the many feelings that people seem to wish upon California?

Fortunately, I have to say, Mother Nature seems to ignore the pleas and supplications of the psychics, seers, soothsayers and medically 'attuned' (I feel it in my knee-caps, ears, bowels, little finger, head, stomach etc) determined to visit destruction on California.

That's funny.....I feel the same way!

However, I do not have an ounce of scientific proof to back up my premonition, or a pound of physic ability to back this hunch up.

So in closing....I guess I am a hurtin' unit

I'm catching up on the news and came upon this interesting article from yesterday. The more I read about this situation in Louisiana, the more uncomfortable I am about it.

Breaking: Reports of mysterious ‘loud’ earthquakes flooding in to Louisiana towns — “Of course the sinkhole comes to mind” — Dozens of miles away — So rare, no seismic monitors in area

From your link

Though Lafourche and Terrebonne have similar brine caverns, Boudreaux said there is no reason to believe there are any similarities to the Bayou Corne situation.

Oh really? And why would they think that? That seems to me to be a MOST illogical statement since if they have similar caverns then there WILL be similarities.

They may not have a sink hole (yet) but consider a brine cavern. What does the word 'cavern' convey to you? Ah yes, big empty space, by which I mean a void that is not filled with solid material. Ever been in a cave? Heard an echo? Surprised there are booms? No, not surprised surely. Any ground movement noise is going to be amplified by these and let's face it, a large part of the US is built on this very shaky ground.

If you scrape out vast caverns in salt, in areas that are under pressure anyway and are topped often by shale (lovely cracked flaky stuff) expect the void to get filled (if you don't fill it with gas yourself).

Add methane into the mix and you have potential explosions waiting to happen.

This type of ground extends from the GOM way up North and they keep on sucking stuff out and punching holes in it, injecting it, cracking it open, etc and are then surprised when Mother Nature objects!

A nice pattern has appeared on some of the LISS seismos caused by 2 (?) quakes on the Northern Mid-Atlantic Ridge.

Prov,Date/Time UTC,Latitude,Longitude,Magnitude,Depth(Km),Location
usgs,2012-10-05 00:19:57, 17.498, -46.467, 5.5, 10.0, Northern Mid-Atlantic Ridge
usgs,2012-10-05 00:15:42, 17.508, -46.464, 5.5, 10.0, Northern Mid-Atlantic Ridge
usgs,2012-10-04 23:14:56, 17.456, -46.510, 5.5, 10.1, Northern Mid-Atlantic Ridge

These would seem to be the middle and bottom ones of this list, but I put a ? by 2 as there are three here but I don't see the one at 00:19 or perhaps I don't see the one at 00:19 although I believe that is mixed in the second trace.

Several other LISS helicorders have a similar pattern but this and Barbados (see below) are the best ones. I definitely can't see that second quake on the Barbados heliplot.

If you look at the IRIS versions of these the quakes just don't show at all on LHZ

I pulled the SAC file for 2300 hrs on the 4th to 0200 hrs on the 5th. The first event is obvious on the spectrogram

Sorry forgot to mark the S wave arrival (see similar look below and work it out!)

This is the spectro of the later events and yes it is events plural

I do enjoy a good investigate!

Here is an interesting report which says, "mysterious tremors 45 miles from" that expanding monster sinkhole that is gobbling up the state of Louisiana. Millions of barrels amounts underground are there, in these 'salt domes' full of government-stored butane, natural gas, oil, and radiation. Abouts to blow.

Do any of our resident experts have any thoughts on all the moderate quakes up and down the west coast of the Americas??

I am wondering if the big ones (Central America, Mexico, Alaska) are causing an unusual amount of movement in the middle.

For those of you who have been concerned about the swarm in the Virgin Islands, I am posting a good map of the subduction zone, by the New York Times.

This swarm is looking a LITTLE more serious, and I stress only a little more serious then normal.

This is a highly active part of the world......most all the time.

Do not know why me linky is not working......Technically stunted

Here it is.
Try It now...

So....30 major earthquakes in roughly 397 years according to that. 31 if you count the one in 2010.
I wonder what they are using for 'major'?
The earliest listed is 1615. The latest is 2003.
Every 12.81 years.

1615, 1673, 1684, 1690, 1691, 1692. +58+11+6+1+1
1751-(2), 1761-(2), 1770, 1787. +59+10+9+17
1842, 1843, 1852, 1860, 1867, 1887. +55+1+9+8+7+20
1907, 1917, 1918, 1943, 1946, 1948, 1953, 1957, 1974, 1984, 1992. +20+10+1+25+3+2+5+4+17+10+8
2003, (2010) +11+7

Thought there was a pattern there at first, but it didn't follow through!
The 1900's were almost twice as active. It would be a lot more informative if I had time to look up magnitudes!

Hey ATS! Why doesn't a post print out like the comment box instead of the preview box?????
Why can't they be the same??? No way to get it to show what I want it to!!!!
Good-bye nice, neat columns!!!!
