9/22/2015 — Scientists ‘discover’ that seismic pressure transfers up to 1,000km — Causing other earthquakes

Scientists have now “discovered” something that I have been telling (and showing) my viewers / readers for the past several years.

Seismic pressure caused by large earthquake activity is causing other earthquakes up to 1,000km away.yellowstone idaho cernSPACEWARLCH-Earth15

Example of earthquake progression across a vast area over 6,700 miles long on June 12, 2015 . Four earthquakes spanning the entire West Pacific along a “straight” line , occurring back to back from one another in progression from East to West. All four events occurred in the same day.

 

These new findings, made by Italian scientists, indicate seismic pressure is causing “particles” in the Earth’s crust to vibrate (resonate) on a certain frequency which induces particulate matter to slip along far adjacent fault zones.

In otherwords, pressure from a large earthquake can cause vibration on layers of the crust several hundred to over a 1,000km away from the original earthquake epicenter.

Simply put, a large earthquake can cause another earthquake far away.

We see this happen across the North American Craton every few weeks, earthquake progression where seismic pressure in one area causes an earthquake in another region.

Up until now, professionals have literally been frequenting my pages (and videos) DENYING that earthquakes are related across large distances like this.

Now these denying professionals are corrected by other professional researchers.  As if showing everyone via my videos for the past few years isn’t proof enough.

I just talked about this topic, the fact that earthquakes are related over a distance, in my most recent Earthquake Forecast video:

How earthquakes can trigger copycat quakes 1000 kilometres away

https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn28200-how-earthquakes-can-trigger-copycat-quakes-1000-kilometres-away/

21 September 2015

“Seismic waves unleashed during Wednesday’s magnitude 8.3 earthquake in Chile could have triggered aftershocks as far as 1000 kilometres away.

That’s because they can shake up grains of rock wedged inside distant faults. According to computer models, even weak waves at the right frequency could be enough to start a new quake by vibrating that grist into a more slippery, liquid-like layer.

Earthquakes often happen when two tectonic plates that have been pressed together suddenly slip. But we’ve seen that major earthquakes like 1992’s Landers earthquake in California can also send out waves that spark copycat quakes 1000 kilometres away, even though the waves get weaker as they travel.

The mysterious remote triggering of quakes may have also played a role in events in Chile in 2014, and Japan in 2011.

“We were wondering: how could it happen that a very tiny wave with a very small amplitude could trigger earthquakes a thousand kilometres away?” says Lucilla de Arcangelis of the Second University of Naples in Italy.

One idea is that sound waves can lather up the grains between the two plates in a way that decreases friction, to make a slip easier. Now a team including de Arcangelis has built a computer model that shows the process as it happens.

They found that seismic waves could trigger an earthquake in the simulated fault only if they came in a narrow range of frequencies. If the fault was just about to slip, it would hasten the process by starting vibrations in that range. Only the frequency really mattered – weak waves, or even waves that would actually push in the direction against a slip, could still induce an earthquake.

“Each fault will have its own acoustic resonance frequency,” de Arcangelis says. “If a signal arrives at this frequency, the fault that without perturbation would be quiet will trigger an earthquake.”

Combined with a 2005 lab experiment that also showed a resonant frequency could jiggle glass beads in a fake fault into slipping, this simulation could suggest that actual faults have specific frequencies they’re susceptible to

Vibration of Small Particles Could Trigger Aftershocks of Earthquakes

 

“Earthquakes can create copycat events up to 1,000 kiometers away — and it could be the result of the vibration of small particles, according to new computer simulations of seismic activity in the Earth.

New Scientist reports that a team of researchers from the Second University of Naples in Italy has developed a computer model that analyzes the way grains between tectonic plates influence friction forces felt at their boundaries. The team has shown that at certain frequencies, small particles between the plates can becomes ‘lathered’, moving around and decreasing friction, making slip — and an earthquake — more likely, even up to 1,000 kilometers away.

Interestingly, they found that the magnitude of the seismic waves emanating from one earthquake don’t have much effect on the likelihood of inducing another earthquake — it’s just the frequency. “Each fault will have its own acoustic resonance frequency,” Lucilla de Arcangelis, one of the researchers, tells New Scientist. “If a signal arrives at this frequency, the fault that without perturbation would be quiet will trigger an earthquake.” The research is published in Physical Review Letters.

In fact, the researchers claim that the effect could been what triggered aftershocks which occurred after last week’s earthquake in Chile.”


For the record:

Professor John Vidale, the lead Geologist at the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network (PNSN), and professor of Geology at the University of Washington has been  an outspoken critic on my public pages.

Professor Vidale came on the attack to my pages rather UN-professionally.

This well credentialed “professional” made several personal (ad  hominem) attacks on my character, then followed up by making several scientific denials.

Specifically, Professor Vidale denied that one earthquake can cause another earthquake elsewhere far away.

Now John Vidale is proved wrong thanks to the work of real scientists who are willing to question the basic dogmas of Geology + Seismology.

Professor John Vidale of the PNSN decided it would be a good idea to publicly trash me on social media for saying earthquakes are related over a distance. Now professor Vidale is proved wrong by other professionals. Wonder if he will apologize for attacking me over this topic.

9/16/2015 – Very large M8.3 Earthquake Strikes South of the Chile Peru Border at Central Chile’s Coastline.

yellowstone idaho cernSPACEWAREFARE48

Just got back in to my page… And now a very large M8.3 earthquake strikes South of the Chile Peru Border at Central Chile’s coastline.

In addition to this large movement in South America… we also saw that a M4.0 struck South California, and M6.2 struck Soloman Sea this morning.

My facebook was turned off ALL DAY… on the biggest earthquake day in weeks…. go figure.


I was expecting major activity to strike Chile this week (as I said in the forecast video).

A M8.3 earthquake has struck off the Coast of Chile , South of the Peru border near Valparaiso. A tsunami warning has been issued for the Pacific ocean, including Hawaii.

The Tsunami may only be a small wave, keep up to date on the tsunami warnings here:

http://www.tsunami.gov


The most recent global earthquake forecast was calling for a large volcanic eruption strike South Chile this week.. instead.. a large magnitude 8.3 earthquake has now struck South Chile.

See the forecast here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1C2EF…


I was expecting an eruption with a swarm of M5.0’s.. instead a M8.3 struck..

Watch for eruption activity in the area just in case.

Talking about Chile twice in this most recent forecast video.. once at the beginning .. once at the end .. forecast video is linked below for you to review.

I’d also like to point out that Soloman sea was struck as expected with a M6.2, and Taiwan was struck by TWO mid M5.0 earthquakes.

Soloman Sea was forecast to see a mid-M6.0 and Taiwan was forecast for upper M5.0 to lower M6.0. Both hit dead on.

I’m not shocked to see an M8.3 on the East Pacific quite frankly…. since the other two M6.0 this morning in the Philippines + Soloman Sea , and the M4.5 near Los Angeles California were pointing to major unrest brewing on the Pacific plate.

Busy in real life.. not much time to do any EQ coverage… frown emoticon

About 30 minutes ago (900am CDT) a M5.2 earthquake struck NW Nevada near the dormant volcanoes we’ve been looking at for the past several months.

The earthquake struck near Bitner Butte Volcano and Blowout Mountain….

The USGS then did almost a FULL MAGNITUDE DOWNGRADE on the earthquake.. taking it down to M4.5……

“Nothing to see here folks, keep moving.. nothing to see here!!!!!”

A noteworthy M4.2 (M4.0 revised) earthquake has struck between Mount Rainier Volcano and Glacier Peak Volcano — East of downtown Seattle Washington, near Snoqualmie, WA.

http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquake…

This is one of the larger earthquakes to strike the area over the past year… there was just one other M4.4 which struck two weeks ago.

This new M4.0+ movement over the past 2 weeks shows that the Pacific Northwest is under renewed stress, meaning we need to be on watch for adjacent nearby areas to possibly show larger movement over the next week.

This puts Vancouver BC (to the North), and California (to the South) in the mix over the next several days. We need to be on watch for similar (or larger) magnitude releases along the adjacent faults to this location in Washington State.

——————————————–

After several months with no activity.. Mexico has now been hit by a large M6.7 earthquake.

Mount Aso Eruption underway in Japan. Disaster management team news conference and more.
Mount Aso on Japan’s southwestern island of Kyushu erupted on Monday at around 9:43 AM local time.

An NHK camera near the volcano captured images of black smoke rising high above the crater.

The Meteorological Agency says the smoke rose as high as 2,000 meters. Officials observed large rocks flying near the eruption.
http://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/englis…
The agency has issued an alert level of 3 on a scale of 5. Level 3 means ‘do not approach the volcano.’
The agency is calling for caution against falling volcanic rocks and pyroclastic flows in areas within about 2 kilometers of the crater.

The government has set up a task force in the prime minister’s office.
