No, it was much worse than that!

It apparently was me & ATS. I had to log back in for some reason.
Everything went 'wonky' & not just with the usual absence of avitars & extra advertisements
you see if you don't log in.
I had to zoom to 150% everything was so small, & the layout was different,
the background was so dark the text almost wasn't readable.
And there was no place to click to reply!
Never saw that before!

It's normal now when I clicked on it. Much more info showing up too!
Going back to reread it now!

Don't electronics sometimes go wonky before big earthquakes?
(Cue ominous background music!)

A bit unfair I think Rainbows. I was responding to WOQ because of the line "I was intrigued by the storyline, can't wait for the new season to start here & see where they go with it too! "

As as regards the rest "but Christopher is trying to develop a 'safe' way, because the place in China where he was frakking had`an earthquake due to the frakking...they even kept it at a low seismic reading....his 'conscience' has got the better of him! " I was basically observing that without suggesting anything new they WILL feed out to the sheeple the line that fracking is safe and it was just some problem in nasty old China who are baddies anyway. Note that this attack of conscience did not occur about a US well.

It will probably transpire that the Chinese well was fracked in an unsafe fashion and the "American Way" is perfectly safe.

I do not believe that the MSM has had an attack of of conscience and is about to say fracking is unsafe. They would be stepped on swiftly by their masters because any such dissent would affect profits.

But we shall see, or others will, how the story unfolds but this I can guarantee fracking will NOT be maligned.

I was right. Mississippi had an earthquake.

In Mississippi they have carbon sequestration.

Subterranean injection

"Main article: Carbon capture and storage

Carbon dioxide can be injected into depleted oil and gas reservoirs and other geological features, or can be injected into the deep ocean.[38]

The first large-scale CO2 sequestration project which began in 1996 is called Sleipner, and is located in the North Sea where Norway's StatoilHydro strips carbon dioxide from natural gas with amine solvents and disposed of this carbon dioxide in a deep saline aquifer. In 2000, a coal-fueled synthetic natural gas plant in Beulah, North Dakota, became the world's first coal using plant to capture and store carbon dioxide, at the Weyburn-Midale Carbon Dioxide Project.[39]

CO2 has been used extensively in enhanced crude oil recovery operations in the United States beginning in 1972.[40] There are in excess of 10,000 wells that inject CO2 in the state of Texas alone. The gas comes in part from anthropogenic sources, but is principally from large naturally occurring geologic formations of CO2. It is transported to the oil-producing fields through a large network of over 5,000 kilometres (3,100 mi) of CO2 pipelines. The use of CO2 for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) methods in heavy oil reservoirs in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin (WCSB) has also been proposed.[41] However, transport cost remains an important hurdle. An extensive CO2 pipeline system does not yet exist in the WCSB. Athabasca oil sands mining that produces CO2 is hundreds of kilometers north of the subsurface Heavy crude oil reservoirs that could most benefit from CO2 injection.

(three years tv free is nothing- i just went 7 years. i have access to one at the moment- and I wished I didn't- it's horrible)

maybe all this global warming is a big conspiracy after all. they're just using the carbon dioxide in the drilling process, and at the end of it the inject it back in the ground and get credit for taking it out of the atmosphere. I'm just a gonzo reporter. I go where the story takes me. The gas companies will be able to squeeze every bit of of their fields and then when their depleted, they pump the waste down and the problem of the waste byproduct is gone and your being paid by power companies to scrub their smoke stacks and dump the stuff. huh,

This is a great way to call yourself green and clean and all the while your polluting even more and making money at every turn.

The whole idea that the Texas earthquakes weren't frackquakes is ridiculous. I thought about trying to construct a polite email to the geologist in the article. I wanted to challenge him and, rather than just call names, use facts and the overwhelming data to ask the question again. How can this be a coincidence?

The last two quakes in Oklahoma were just over twenty four hours apart. They were over 70 kms apart. 40miles.
Is this one fault? Come on!? That's a big fault. And it's not on a trend with the others. Oh, yes I checked. There is an injection well very near by - hold on i'll chekc

I think they will probably milk it for all it's worth to play to both sides.
Keep the argument going back & forth so viewers with both views keep tuning in to see which side they favor!
More people watching that way. It's all about the ratings after all!

Wow, TV free for three years!
Can I be so bold as to ask what the catalyst was for your awakening???
Besides nothing worthwhile on to watch anymore!

We do find we don't watch much anymore, unless we're too tired at the end of the day to do anything else.
But then we usually turn it on & fall asleep anyway!
I find I spend much more time on ATS, than I do watching TV nowadays!
Don't know yet if that's a good thing or not!

Basically it was my interest in Yellowstone and geology and 'her wot sits next to me' found this weird site that had a thread all about Yellowstone and another one that dealt with earthquakes. She started telling me all about the conspiracies and such on that site. She was way more in to that side - mainly UFOs - than me but of course once on the site I guess the rest was inevitable.

Trying to recall the name of the site - Above something.......................

There is just no consistency in the magnitude conversion process
, same spot, OK 10km deeper, but heck how can one quake be 6.9ML/7.2Mw and another be 7.0ML/6.7Mw

You are of course right, everyone does need their own homemade seismometer, so how about giving us some details instead of just an image? I already knew you had one one but I have no doubt that others would like details of how to make one to run on Windows (HP or Compaq notebook running XP with the AC power pugged in and using a wireless connection?).

I would not see much here! The 6.7 as seen in Ireland IGLA.EI..BHZ.2012.286 - yes that was good then.

7.0ML, but does it qualify as a "significant earthquake 314-2012" ?

I would say not because if you look at your own conversion chart a Mag 7.0ML is ~ Mag 6.6 Mw. That does not make it a Mag 7 if you try and use a consistent set of values across the board.

Mb: 6.8 ML: 6.9 - that is fairly consistent as 6.8 Mb is ~ 6.51 Mw but Mb is saturated at that level.

Mw: 7.2 Ms: 6.9 - that is apparently incorrect. 6.9 Ms is ~M7.71 Mw on your conversion values. I have noticed this quite often that the Ms values appear wrong. Maybe the formula is wrong?

Oh good grief, I certainly wouldnt use mine as any kind of an example as a suggestion of what to build, seeing how freaking complex and time consuming it was to build, not to mention experimental, customised funny software with clunky USB interface (but stylishly steampunk).

But if I was to suggest any hints at all, there appears to be two popular bits of software in use...

1. Amaseis.
Takes data in through the serial port (which counts out most laptops although adapters are readily available, as is software that fools your computer into thinking soundcard microphone data is coming in through the serial port).
Amaseis is sepecifically written for one particular model of seismometer, the AS1, but looking over the specs it appears that if you have the right kind of analog to digital converter you can plug almost anything into it.

2. Winquake
Seems to offer input through both USB and serial, but specifically written for one particular $170 interface board.

With your computer now displaying data coming in through your analog to digital converter, you now need some analog signal to feed into it.
Mechanical arrangements are a plenty. Lots of weird and wonderful designs, all intended to take the tiny tiny tiny momements from an earthquake half a world away and convert them into an electrical signal.
But for simplicities sake, try a "lehman" type of seismometer. This is a long boom with a weight on the end. Any swinging of this boom gets picked up by a sensor coil. If you've got a bit of handyman skills, you can build one at home with easily available bits from your local hardware store.
Google this, lots of people have built them.
