    After California quakes, attention turns to New Madrid zoneATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- Recent earthquake activity in California has prompted fresh speculation about "the big one" -- an enormous quake along California's West Coast. A few have been large enough to shake the faith of skeptics -- a magnitude 7.2 quake on June 15, followed two days later by a magnitude 6.7, both off the coast near the California-Oregon border. Doomsayers have warned about the Pacific Coast for years. But only a few have raised concerns about an area with the potential to be more dangerous than California -- the New...

    Full Title:10/07/2017 -- New Earthquake activity brewing -- West Coast USA + New deep EQ event coming? Video at link. USA coverage extends from 6:43 to 29:25 with a brief break in between (discussion of non-US activity). He makes the point that the USGS did not report a 5+ earthquake off the coast of Northern California but Alaska resources did report it. His USA predictions are mild and mostly effect west coast, Nevada, Colorado, Kansas etc. Off the coast of northern California he predicts a possible 5.1 and that the energy would transfer to movement in other US locations (smaller...
  • The graphs that show why Bali's Mt Agung volcano could erupt at any minute, as 75,000 flee

    Vehicles laden with food, masks and bedding have been dispatched to help more than 75,000 people who have fled a volcano on the tourist island of Bali, as rising magma and increased tremors fuel fears of an imminent eruption. Mount Agung, about 75 kilometres (47 miles) from the Indonesian tourist hub of Kuta, has been rumbling since August, threatening to erupt for the first time since 1963. "The chance that an eruption will happen is quite big. But it cannot be predicted when it will happen," Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, spokesman for the disaster mitigation agency, said. The increased frequency of...

    Dave, a 16-inch-long earthworm discovered recently in England, will become part of the collection at the Natural History Museum in London.What Paul Rees recently discovered among his vegetables in England's Cheshire County is anything but garden variety: a gigantic earthworm. Rees's stepson, George, named the behemoth Dave. He's the longest earthworm recorded in the United Kingdom—almost 16 inches—but it's his mass that has really impressed scientists. Dave weighs nearly an ounce, almost twice as heavy as any other wild earthworm ever seen. That's about the size of a small chocolate bar. Before Dave, the largest earthworm (Lumbricus terrestris) was a...

    Emergency services are already preparing for how to deal with a terrible off-shore earthquake in the Cascadia Subduction Zone, off the west coast of America near California. They were just completing their four-day major emergency test run when a 5.2 magnitude quake hit Borrego Springs, San Diego County, in California on Friday. The mid-sized earthquake caused more than 200 aftershocks – some more than three on the richter scale - and could be felt from Santa Barbara to the Mexican border. Egill Hauksson, a research professor of geophysics at Caltech, said of the 5.2 quake: "It was the biggest one...

    When Mark Barrett moved to Guy, Arkansas, he had no idea the tiny town of less than 300 was nearly as rocking as the Southern California community he'd left behind. Six years and hundreds of seismic events later, Barrett says he's feeling it more and more. Since September, seismologists have recorded 700 temblors in the area. The largest in the current swarm, a 4.3-magnitude quake, shook the town at 2:13 a.m. Friday. The tremors appear to be rumbling through town with greater frequency. The Arkansas Geological Survey has recorded 50 quakes in and around Guy since Sunday. That includes Friday...

    Small quakes may act as a release valve that prevents catastrophic convulsions. Typhoons may release stress from faults, preventing violent earthquakes.Wikimedia Commons Typhoons pack enough punch to trigger slow earthquakes in eastern Taiwan, scientists have found. Slow earthquakes occur as a result of slippage or rupture of a geologic fault — the same process that leads to violent earthquakes. But unlike the sudden release of energy in an ordinary earthquake, slow quakes take place over the course of hours or even one or two days.Now, scientists in the United States and Taiwan have examined slow earthquake events in eastern Taiwan...

    Big Earthquakes Spark Jolts Worldwide ScienceDaily (May 26, 2008) — Until 1992, when California's magnitude-7.3 Landers earthquake set off small jolts as far away as Yellowstone National Park, scientists did not believe large earthquakes sparked smaller tremors at distant locations. Now, a definitive study shows large earthquakes routinely trigger smaller jolts worldwide, including on the opposite side of the planet and in areas not prone to quakes. "Previously it was thought seismically active regions or geothermal areas were most vulnerable to large earthquake triggers," says Kris Pankow, a seismologist at the University of Utah Seismograph Stations and a co-author of...

    Science Daily ^ | March 15, 2007
    Science Daily — Tiny tremors and temblors recently discovered in fault zones from California to Japan are generated by slow-moving earthquakes that may foreshadow catastrophic seismic events, according to scientists at Stanford University and the University of Tokyo. In a study published in the March 15 issue of the journal Nature, the research team focused on weak seismic signals known as "non-volcanic tremor" and "low-frequency earthquakes," which seismologists say may be useful in forecasting the likelihood of potentially destructive mega-quakes of magnitude 8 or higher."Non-volcanic tremor is a weak shaking of the Earth that was discovered about five years ago...

    Vancouver — A silent tectonic event, so powerful it has shifted southern Vancouver Island out to sea, but so subtle nobody has felt a thing, is slowly unfolding on the West Coast. Scientists who are tracking the event with sensitive seismographs and earth orbiting satellites warn it could be a trigger for a massive earthquake -- some time, maybe soon. But they are quick to add that the imperceptible tremors emanating from deep beneath the surface are sending signals scientists are not yet able to comprehend fully and "the Big One" might yet be 200 years off. What they do...

    Danger lurks below in Oregon The state faces the likelihood of a major earthquake that would kill thousands and cause billions of dollars in damage -- and we're not ready for it. A hurricane as destructive as Katrina striking Oregon is about as likely as a rain-free winter in the Northwest. Oregon hasn't been hit by a hurricane even close to that powerful in recorded history. But that doesn't mean the state is immune to disaster. Scientists warn that the 800-mile-long earthquake fault off the state's coast will shake the ground as far east as the Cascades -- hard enough...
  • MouseCage: An Anti-Tremor Software

    London-based Tunic Software came up with a program that compensates for hand tremors when using a mouse. This is how it works: MouseCage (patent pending) displays a special Guide cursor on screen that shows your actual hand movements. The Windows cursor takes an average of this motion and automatically moves to where you intend to click. When you are near or on target, you can optionally press the special 'Cage' key and your mouse is caged - this means that cursor motion is greatly reduced for accurate clicking. If you wish, you can press the Cage key a second time...

  • Tremors rock earth deep beneath San Andreas Fault - Puzzling vibrations baffle researchers

    SF Chronicle ^ | December 10, 2004 | David Perlman
    Mysterious tremors deep beneath the San Andreas Fault near the quake-prone town of Parkfield are shaking the earth's brittle crust, far below the region where earthquakes normally strike -- and scientists say they can't understand what's happening or what the motions mean. Seismic researchers are monitoring the strange vibrations closely. But whether the faint underground tremors -- termed "chatter" by some seismologists -- portend an increased likelihood of a major quake in the area is an unsolved puzzle. Robert Nadeau, a geophysicist at the UC Berkeley Seismological Laboratory, charted more than 110 of the faint vibrations since they were first...

    No one would argue that earthworms are cute. But to most people, they are benign and helpful creatures — fertilizers of the garden, aerators of the soil, indispensable fishing companions. "Earthworms are truly nature's little farmers," goes one common view, this one on the Web site of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, "plowing the soil and fertilizing at the same time!" But for a growing body of researchers, the traditional view of earthworms is giving way to a much more ominous one. Most earthworms common in the United States are exotic intruders from Europe, Asia or South America, these scientists point...

    Parkinson's Gene Therapy Study Begins By MALCOLM RITTER AP Science Writer NEW YORK (AP) -- Researchers slipped billions of copies of a gene into the brain of a Parkinson's disease patient Monday, marking the first attempt to test gene therapy in a person with that disease. The patient, 55-year-old Nathan Klein of Port Washington, N.Y., said he was "feeling fine" in a telephone interview a few hours after the surgery. Klein said the disease gave him a tremor in his right arm, and made him shuffle and have to catch himself sometimes from falling. Medicines offer some relief, he said,...
