there is a lot of action today but not as much as

this suggests

this has a list of all 2.5mag + quakes today. that would not explain why the other is going crazy though.

haarp is very active too.

Dammit!

Whenever something big goes off in my field, of course Im offline because of #ing computer problems!

Anyway, the USGS seismos are showing ABSOLUTELY MASSIVE ACTIVITY OF RATHER BIBLICAL PROPORTIONS.

This my friends, qualifies as a # LOAD of earthquakes in a very short timespan.

Because the vast majority of this activity is happeing in and around the Asian plate, specifically the "Ring of Fire", I would say that a massive plate movement is underway. This is highly unusual and not a good omen, considering what is going on in Yellowstone.

HAARP is currently flatline, after coming off of a large broadcast regime... however, scroll back 72 hours, and damn, it was busy....

Okay, here's another analysis. This time I pulled the data from the NEIC database. Unlike the NOAA Significant Earthquake Database, which only include "significant" events (I'm real unclear what makes some 4.0's significant and all the rest not - maybe property damage or loss of life), the NEIC includes all recorded events from 1973 to present. The NEIC database was up-to-date through 09/24, so I added in the data from the IRIS 30 day to include all activity as of this morning.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

Val,

I am noticing a couple of trends here... Firest of all, yes, there is an increase in mag 4 quakes, and that can indeed be justified with the increased deployment of more sensitive seismic monitoring equipment.

However, there is still a very real upward trend in the large magnitude quakes. I am also noticing that there appears to be an overall spike around 1994-1995 and then around 2000 or so. I would have to do some homework, but I would be very interested to see if that were the years when HAAARP was being rung out, and maybe when it changed hands from the USAF/USN to the Universitty of Alaska, andwhen the major facility at Poker Flots started....

Experts Warn of Powerful Aftershocks in Japan



Reuters
Saturday, September 27, 2003; 3:49 PM



By Kimimasa Mayama

KUSHIRO, Japan (Reuters) - An aftershock rattled Japan's Hokkaido island Saturday, as experts said more powerful tremors were likely to strike the region after it was battered by a strong earthquake that injured nearly 600 people.

A government team visited the earthquake-prone region to assess damage from powerful earthquakes that struck at dawn on Friday with an initial tremor of 8.0 on the Richter scale -- stronger than some killer quakes that have hit the country.

Aftershocks powerful enough to cause heavy damage in the northern region were highly possible, seismologists said.

"Although the number of tremors has been declining, there is a high possibility of strong aftershocks striking the region," said an official at Japan's Meteorological Agency.

"There is a 70 percent chance that aftershocks with magnitude of six or higher could hit the region in the next three days," he said.

I thought this might be interesing about Japan


story.news.yahoo.com.../nm/20030926/sc_nm/japan_volcano_dc_1

" Four patches of subsidence were discovered on the sides of Japan's volcanic Mount Fuji on Friday, one with steam rising from it, but scientists said there was no sign of volcanic activity and the venerable peak was quiet. "

Never did much research on Mt. Fuji, but this gave me an excuse...

Seems that Fuji is a combination pyroclastic/shield volcanoe (which is rather unique and unusual).

A Shield volcanoe is similar to that found in Hawaii... they eject a relatively low volume/ash free plume of lava, usually ultramafic (high in iron concentration) in natre. This results in a thin, watery lavalthat simply flows in the path of least hydrostatic resitance. The good thing about such volcanoes is that thye are usually not explosive when they erupt. Damage can be predicted and localized, and it is fairly easy to evacuate an affected area.

A pyroclastic has a much higher concentration of silica in its laval, which makes it far thicker, and easier to plug up the ejecta ports, resulting in high power explosive eruptions.

Between 80,000 and 11,000 years ago, Fuji was higly active with pyroclastic flows, ejecting approximately 250 cubic kilomters of material. (For perspective, Mt. St. Helens only ejected about 6 cubic kilometers).

Fuji was last seriously active in 1707 with an ashfall of about 1.7 cubic kilometers.

Considering how densley populated the area around Fuji currently is, if it were to erupt with another high volume pyroclastic flow, it would have a very bad effect on casualties....

Of course, the Japanese seem to take such threats far more seriously than we Americans do... they practice eruption drills every year.

May be should take a lesson from the Japanese?

What I am seeing as alot of activity in the infamous...

PACIFIC RING OF FIRE.

Next question, when do we get hit on this side of the rim?

They are not isolated, when you get something funky going on in what aprt of the pacific plate, something else, tsnumais, ect will hit another part, they seldom are isolated.

We have volcano and tsnuami evacuation routes all around here, but no drills.

Mt Rainier isnt the only threat. With 100 miles of Seattle, we have several volcanoes 9000 feet and higer. Mt Rainier, MT Adams, Mt St Helens, Mt Baker, for starters. Portland has Mt Hood.

So, with earthquakes hitting that side of the rim, when does the seismic insanity come smakc us upside the head?

What does this have to do with the enormous volcano under yellowstone?

And HAARP.........

I agree with you. Springer and I were just discussing the activity in the ROF this morning. It isn't the amount of activity, because basically the ring is constantly shaking, but it is the MAGNITUDE AND NUMBER of quakes in the ring that is disturbing and absolutely NOT normal.

I'm with you...wonder when it's going to make its way to the east side?

I'm not typically the fortune teller type, but I have to say that Yellowstone has been WAY TOO quiet since the large movement two weeks ago. The last 4.0 was preceded by increased ROF activity.

The calm before the storm?

Exactly, Val. The Ring of Fire is always acting up, but not THIS big. They are getting higher and higher in power.

With them, come Tsunamis, and the pressure released from one point in the plate will build up more pressure on another piece of the plate. The eastern Rim of the ROF, where the west coast US sits, will get its turn next. And with it, we already have volcanoes under pressure that have been active on a small scale of activity, but they are not like MT Fuji, they are Mud volcanos with highly thick, pressurized lava the consistancy not of thin running lava, but CONCRETE and thick.

I think im gonna go to the USGS site and see if the pacific North West and the seismic activity of the Volcanoes has been picking up any.

The earthquake in Alaska set off Tsnuamis and other disasters elsewhere...maybe pressure is building up here or in California?

Here is a link to the Mt Rainier Seismic site. What it has listed are pretty tiny quakes of low magnitude. But they are also very shallow as well. the deepest being only 8.7 km below the surface.

Im not a geological expert, just a hobbiest, perhaps someone else, like DR or other resident geo gods can make some perspective on them> Also the site only shows earthquakes up to the 15th of sep, nothing about more recent activity, which is what Im curious about. The ones on there are tiny and pretty run of the mill seismic activity for the big monster, so nothing odd there. Wonder if tho it has any bearing on other sesmic activity?

This site also has alot of other pages of info on erruptions of the mountains. St Helens is the most active, but all the big three in the puget sound area have errupted in the past 200 years.

Heres a page on the history of Mt rainier. And a map of endangered towns int he area that would get smoked by an erruption.

Note: I currently live in the city of Auburn now.
