I asked a friend in France if all these quakes, east of fuk, in the same area, could have anything to do with the runaway cores? I know.... it's a
stretch because how could they be so far down? It's just the coincidence of the steady pounding in one area and the proximity to fukushima that bug
me. Sort of like what's happening in Louisiana and the gulf blow-out. Anyway, here is what he sent me.
Looks like he thinks it's magma behind the swarm.
Yikes, what a lot of 'oops' in one post!
First the image. That is the standard image of the Japan cross-section showing the subduction zone and the corresponding volcanic region that is found
in every other subduction zone in the world.
Chicken and egg, cart and horse. No it is not magma driven, in that the volcanoes to not drive the subduction but completely the other way round. The
volcanic zone is a result of the subducting slab and it's water content.
Here is a relatively easy explanation
Whether it is slab pull or plate push the subducting lithosphere in most subduction zones is subject to periodic swarms. These can be volcanic or
megathrust origin and the determination of that will probably be the distance. In this instance these are most certainly megathrust origin as they are
right on the subduction zone.
Not quite sure what you mean by 'runaway cores'. As far as I am concerned the cores of the nuclear plants at Fukushima may be/have been
meltdown but I am not aware of any suggestion of a theoretical 'China Syndrome' scenario. A nuclear reactor core is a pretty puny thing compared to
the core of the planet! No contest really.
This has absolutely no similarity to Louisiana which is not in a subduction zone, and which to gulf blowout are you referring? There have been many.
As far as I am away there are currently
no uncontrolled well blowouts amongst the several thousand wells in the Gulf of Mexico.
So what is it that you are suggesting is happening that is similar to Fukushima, if that is what you are saying?
