Hi Bo

Somehow, I'm not comforted by the decrease. Perhaps particularly that it's such a decrease over a decade or so.

That is, wouldn't that be an indicator that things may be locking together for a MORE massive release when such releases???

I will mention that I did not say the decrease was good. It may not be, but on the other hand stress may have been increased in some areas and released in others. This is something I am currently looking at to see if there is any pattern that can be seen. The problem is that this area never had a quake like this in living history.

An idle curiosity is coming to mind as I ponder the above. I don't know if you want to bother with it, or not.

We've had Banda Ache . . . and Japan . . . What 5 other areas do you think would be the


however remote the possibility

of a 9.X quake?

5 others? I am not sure that there would be 5 others not known but of the known potential candidates there is Cascadia, Alaska, Kamchatka, Chile and of course Peru is also a candidate as is Lisbon and China. Some would say San Andreas and/or New Madrid but personally I don't think either of these have the potential for a magnitude 9+

really,, do you think its really that difficult to create an earthquake?.. Especially when if you had billions to throw at a project like that...!?

have a watch of this-

and have a read of this-

what did Nicola Tesla have to say on the idea of creating earthquakes?.. 80 years ago!!

Imagine what could be achieved if you throw nukes in to the mix too!

I have been watching the USGS site daily for a few years now. Though I have noticed a decrease in the overall number of quakes listed(leery of possible omissions), I have notice that quakes are intensifying. I recently saw an image of the sun explaining it is expanding as part of the solar maximum, and it seems it may be connected. Do we need to be concerned as the sun's activity peaks at the end of the year?

I have a question. Is there any particular reason you know as to why a good portion of the quakes over the last year have been around 5 Km in depth? Someone pointed it out to me. I thought it was curious.
