I'm convinced there's a connection! Anyway, I'm off to bed now 'down under' hope there aren't any tsunamis!

First here is a list of Mag 5+ earthquakes for Hawaii from 1960 to 2012 from ANSS (No ex tags because this is an image)


Most, but not all, the activity on Hawaii is volcanic in origin and not tectonic so larger earthquakes will be less common. Here is the list for Hawaii for the last 365 days (Sourced feom USGS. Also an image)


Thing is it is not really any busier now than it was in say March of last year. Whenever the lava in 'the pit' (Pu 'u 'O o) is misbehaving itself you get a small swarm of earthquakes. Activity here is mainly on the flank and really what is the worst that could happen? Part of the flank collapses? That may cause a small tsunami but really not much else.

Hawaii and the nature of the eruptions there has given it's name to a particular style of eruption - yup, an Hawaiian eruption - and these are not really explosive.


A Hawaiian eruption is a type of volcanic eruption where lava flows from the vent in a relative gentle, low level eruption, so called because it is characteristic of Hawaiian volcanoes.


Source: The ubiquitous Wikipedia

All in all Hawaii is one of the areas in the world where cataclysmic happenings are very low order so not too much to be concerned about.

Worry about Alaska instead.

February 27 it's an important day in the calendar.


2010 – An earthquake measuring 8.8 on the Richter scale strikes central parts of Chile leaving over 500 victims, and thousands injured. The quake triggered a tsunami which struck Hawaii shortly after.

PM you are just toooo cool for school!


When you put the data out there it is not hard to see that Hawaii will be ok....at least as we can see by looking at the data. Not too much has changed although i do wonder about a massive volcanic eruption and what it could do...worst case scenario. Have any thoughts or ideas about a worst case scenario for the Island?

Yes, and NO!

Unfortunately the direct relationship between CMEs and larger earthquakes remains unsubstantiated. Whilst I do believe there is a connection between the Sun and earthquakes, CMEs in my opinion are not it specifically.

Sure today there is a CME arriving and a mag 6.7, but on the 14th there was a mag 6.5 and no CME. The cloud for the current CME event according to spaceweather should reach Earth today, Feb. 26th around 1330 UTC, So did the Russian earthquake go off in anticipation of the event?

One cannot cherry pick the data as is done for the 188 day theory and climate change. Either an arriving CME does cause an earthquake trigger or it does not - depending of course on the strength of the incoming CME and the potential earthquake. The problem is that if you have an earthquake without a CME you have a problem. (Yes I know what I said.
) The problem is that you then have to explain why this on happened without the benefit of a CME.

As I have said more than once on the thread I am happy to be shown the connection if there is one, but that requires the production of data to support the argument and not just a feeling. It is fine to say that you think there may be a connection, but one cannot state there IS a connection without evidence. (Not saying you were by the way)

Despite the ridiculous thread the other day suggesting that ATS members should be vetted to prove their credentials in order to prevent disagreements and 'pics or it didn't happen' statements, data (or pics) or it didn't happen is a perfectly valid request.

massive volcanic eruption and what it could do...worst case scenario. Have any thoughts or ideas about a worst case scenario for the Island?


In the case of this particular area I don't think there is much danger which was the point I was making. There is very little on the flank of the volcano and the ground rises upwards going North so the scenario posted last year of a lava flow going up hill over the top and then flowing down to the town of Hilo is just not going to happen.

If there was a massive flank collapse there would be a tsunami, and it would affect the coast of America but the science says that flank collapse tsunamis are localised and do not carry the far reaching effects of tectonic tsunamis, which is the reason why the collapse of the flank on the Canaries will NOT cause a major tsunami on the Florida coast (1 metre at best)

I don't know how this would affect Hawaii itself as I don't have the computer model to find out.

However having said that the activity is between Kilauea and Mauna Loa and not on the seaward side so flank collapse is not imminent I think.

The main danger from Hawaiian volcanoes is going to be ash to some degree and gasses and with substantial population centres reasonably close by virtue of the size of the place this would undoubtedly be the worst problem in the event of a major eruption, but having said that there are not many if any reports of historical problems in that respect.

 



Smoke and gasses can drift.


And it can get in the way of motorists!!!

AS far as the CME connection.... I was only joking.
Im sorry if I mislead you to think otherwise. I know there is no direct evidence to suggest theres ANY WAY of being able to predict an EQ.


When I first joined ATS a year ago I thought I found connections but you showed me otherwise and I appreciate all you do for this site because I have learned soooo much from you and other posters.

I guess the good news is...you have spelled it out once again just in case others find a connection.

I choose to go to spaceweather.com daily only because I am interested in space weather as I am interested in anything geologically speaking or space related. Its just my thang!

Ok good! I have never been to the islands and would love to go one day. I have never studied Hawaii and how the islands came about in the first place....I think I will dive into that subject just for entertainment purposes.


Thanks for your insight!!!!
