Greetings Everyone and All,

Side note for everyone interested:
USGS Offering $7 Million in Earthquake Research Grants

Recently started monitoring a spot that was having multiple earthquakes off the coast of Acapulco...
What caught might attention, was they did not see normal to me, a NOVICE, were not like the others, spread out up and down a fault line...
All in the same location, according to source, with magnitudes ranging from 2 to 5 from my recollection..
This during shortly after the recent one that has been discussed in conspiracies, about the drill the same day..
7.0 Oaxacca region or reason starting thread, is to post data here so can keep up with it all.

Reverse Date Sorted order,
no previous activity in the region for the previous 21 days and need to look at last activity there,
Was the spike in the region and timing of the larger quake..

got to go for the moment, will be back and maybe can tell us all this is normal, not normal, etc., as predicting quakes is an art and saw the flag on the large one, so focus is going to be on this area only in this thread, more or less, as the fracking and other ones will save for another..

I'd note that the Mexico quake would normally be food for thought and fodder for theory all by itself. Add to that though, it was only one of 13 (was there another in the last hours or March?) 6+ quakes for the month. 13.... Now THAT is something! It does seem Mexico is ringing like a bell after their big one though.

I am also tracking these quakes and I have also added the fact that as each one happens regardless of size, a quake happens in a straight line all the way to Alaska or to Indonesia. Within minutes of each a quake occurs. Just from a novice standpoint the timing tells me that somehow they are connected to each other. Granted, I know where the plates are and it happens all the time but this seems a little different. It makes an almost perfect triangle through the Pacific Ocean. The line runs from Mexico, Peru right through California and on to Alaska. Additionally, the line runs from the same area through Hawaii to Tonga and Sumatra.

Could be normal, maybe not.

In response, Mexico’s national oil company, Petróleos Mexicanos, known as Pemex, has started a deepwater drilling program in recent years despite concerns that it is not sufficiently experienced for the task.

February 20, 2012

"As the Mexicans move into deepwater development..."

Deepwater drilling is the cause of the increased siesmic activity.

I have a feeling that the new madrid faultline will be the next big earthquake of the world though I hope I am wrong about this. Mexico also has some earthquake issues good to see that they are actually monitoring and reporting the truth instead of doing what they did in clintonville. Oh it was just a pigeon.

I've noticed the line on of quakes that run up the coast from the equaker, north, it seems to pick up around cali and just and get alerts constantly from there and Alaska daily and when I look on my earthquake monitor, it patterns the shoreline, and what noticed about the one off shore here, was just that, it was off shore the location so precise, as this was something had not witness previously, in the limite time spent viewing...

mention to a friend and he suggest that is was US NAVY involvement, speculating while laughing...however,

if there was some excercise going on, that did cause the great quake, on shore, that was predictable, due to knowledge of the time, obviously, so conspiracy theory related to HAARP, something not buying at the moment on this one, however could be very wrong and possibly a ship can carry the equipment, logically, that could do the job.....of creating a disturbance, be it underwater nuke testing or new forms of tech. weapons, design to take down country before invading and can calculate the damage ahead of time, as well as aim it to some extent..

Or it could be natural,and in this case, would be wondering if this is a natural occurance obviously, seen often and/of if so, where, when, as it's timing was and is questionable and if was any ships in the area, subs, otherwise, be interesting to know...would it not? Just to help control the hypothesis in that direction, if nothing else...anyway, know how to check maritime records for military by chance or other souce, of data that might show or suggest military training or related?

We may be getting somewhere, especially if there are wells there and presumably, they were using gamma rays or fracking underwater technique and other invasive means, to extract, that obviously would cause a disturbance as seen...thus justifying how they new on shore and prepared for the large scale one, while keeping it hush, that they had to blast underwater, maybe try and cap a leak or just get to deeper oil pocket...

Anyone know of any oil gas off shore wells at the coordinates or nearby that are presented?

reply to post by DesirableThoughts

at first was going to try and do a global monitor thread, as it is important indeed, as got some facts that show the rise and with this data and some other:

Excerpt from here:

Noticed either monitoring methods are changing, or there are no more 0 Magnitude quakes...
dramatic decline, agreed?

Magnitude 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012

No Magnitude 3120 2807 2938 3608 2939 864 828 1807 1922 17 24 11 7

Now for increase rate that almost doubled, that could be due to increase in monitoring, is presumed:

2000 20012002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012
5.0 to 5.9 1344 1224 1201 1203 1515 1693 1712 2074 1768 1896 2069 2276 460

Anyways, thanks everyone for comments, as know it is not in the correct forum, as deepwater gulf it is not, just noted suggestion by another member, the other day, that thisforum may need to be renamed to deepwater disasters, to include the TOTAL situation, and others, my badd
