If earthquakes in California weren't enough, now this!

Wow if the quakes weren't bad enough now maybe a volcano? Now I'm in Maine so I'm not that familiar with Cali's geology but a possible volcano to boot? We had an eq of 4.6 here a week and a half ago. Anyone have any ideas as to the upswing in geo activity?

Earthquake swarms and a region-wide rotten egg smell recently reminded Southern California residents they live next to an active volcano field, tiny though it may be. At the time, scientists said the phenomena did not reflect changes in the magma chamber below the Salton Sea. But now, researchers may need to revise estimates of the potential hazard posed by the Salton Buttes - five volcanoes at the lake's southern tip.

I've noticed in the last couple days there's been quite a few magnitude 5+ earthquakes around the world, seemed like more than usual and I've noticed Peru has been getting a lot of earthquakes recently too.

This is the exact number in the last 7 days.

earthquake.usgs.gov...

If I am not mistaken, we average about 4-6 5 mags a day worldwide.

But I am with you....It seems a lot more active then that list portrays!!

Any place that is mountainous can pretty much count on having volcanoes. You can drive through the deserts of California and see plenty of old, unerupted volcanoes that jut out from the desert floor. Some are very ancient and dormant, but that doesn't mean that a bit of shifting around of the earth couldn't bring them to life. Others blew long, long ago....but in geologic time, perhaps not that long ago after all.

The last volano that erupted in California was Mt. Lassen in 1916, I believe. This is in far northern California.

Cali has always been seismically active. We haven't been keeping records long enough to really know it's true geologic history, but it is obvious that it has gone through a lot of changes, and shifting.

For instance, there are rocks on the eastern side of the San Andreas fault that are known as the Pinnacles, next to Gonzales, California (by Monterey / Salinas). Go about 350 miles to the south, and on the western side of the San Andreas fault, out in the desert is a place called Mormon Rocks (where many cowboy movies were filmed). The Pinnacles, and Mormon Rocks, were once the same rock formation, but the sliding of the tectonic plate slowly moved them apart.

Anything that happens in California concerning earthquakes or volcanoes wouldn't surprise me one bit. It is much more seismically active than most people realize. One only needs to look at the mountains and rocks there to see the truth of it.

The interesting thing about these earthquakes occuring globally is the fact they are operating in pairs due to the plate shift. Northern California had the 5.4 a week and a half or two weeks before the 4.6 in Maine just as an example. With the event of a 7.7 on the canadian left coast you can be sure to expect another on the right in the near future.

It's definitely good to see someone finally conceding that the aroma people were experiencing probably wasn't due to the death of the sea, which has been happening for decades and never created that kind of intense smell.

It certainly seemed like a more plausible explanation that it was geological activity at the time that was related to the smell, given that there were almost continuous quakes.

It goes to show that you can't always trust the assertions of specialists. Many are biased, and may be "leaned on" by those in power to keep quiet or downplay the real risks to avoid having to spend money or affecting tourism.

Common sense rules the day again

I'm sorry I don't understand what you mean. I'm not doom porning just asking if theres anyone more educated on the subject that was better able to explain why there would be volcanoes in California. I knew they had EQ's but I didn't think there was open magma flow associated with there kind of plate slippage.

I think there are quite a few threads about this already man, thanks though.

nope not trolling either just checking this as i passed it on my way by while covering the 100+ 4.0 or larger EQs off the coast of canada.

The Big One should hit just as US is going to bomb Iran back to the stoneage, for daring to talk back to the US. This will keep Americans busy, no time to spare to go killing poor Iranians who have also precious litlle to do with what their elite is doing. Listened to an Afghani veteran who lost an arm and a leg while defusing a bomb in Afghanistan, he is now a litlle farmer, and says he was inspired by farmers in Afghanistan, and I could not feel sorry for the lesson that life teached him. Why should a poor American go and kill poor Afghani's? It's disgusting.

Um... you lost me on the correlation between the volcano and us foreign policy. However I do tend to agree the US can be rather aggressive most of the time.

i live in stockton, california and if it's not a 5 mag., nobody gets excited, it's reported, but hey, we have so many you get used to it....this morning our paper reported a couple of 4's, but no big deal.
it would be like me moving to minnesota, and getting freaked out by a foot of snow coming down.
