Full Title: "The mystery of the 'rumble in the Indian Ocean': Strange seismic waves that shook the world on November 11 baffle researchers"

Mysterious seismic waves in the Indian Ocean that were picked up by monitoring stations from Madagascar to Canada three weeks ago have baffled scientists.

Researchers and earthquake enthusiasts who spotted the signals have narrowed down the origin to a region just off the coast of the island Mayotte.

The slow waves detected on November 11 rumbled for more than 20 minutes, unbeknownst to most people.

They are similar to those typically seen after large earthquakes, which are known to travel great distances – but, no such earthquake took place.

Theories as to what caused the cryptic rumble have ranged from a slow earthquake or underwater volcanic eruption to an undetected meteor strike.

They are unusual because of their monotone, low-frequency 'ring', as well as their global spread. During a typical earthquake, the build up of tension releases in a flash of mere seconds, releasing a powerful 'ping' of pressure.

The fastest travelling signals, known as primary or P waves, reach seismographs first, and produce a bunched-up reading of repeated tremors.

They are followed by S or secondary waves, which register as longer, side-to-side motions.

Finally, 'slow waves' reach seismographs, which are prolonged rumble - much like the waves triggered at Mayotte.

These signals seemed to propagate without a triggering earthquake - and that wasn't all that baffled scientists.

Not even a whale production of “Turandot” seems adequate.

Silent earthquake? For example...

This was caused by the boogie man... Al Gore refers to it as “Global warming”... the United Nations refers to it as “Climate change”, and religion refers to it as “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse”

If we collect enough carbon taxes though, and we sacrifice that cash on windmills, solar panels, electric cars and other such nonsense we can make this all go away.

No more hurricanes or nasty weather and volcano’s and earthquakes will be a thing of the past. We will have all four seasons and the temperature will be just right all of the time.

Ran across silent earthquakes while I was reading up on the Cascadia Subduction Zone. Might explain a lot. In the meantime, I think a pic of Donald Rumsfeld along with a certain quote ought to be hanging in a lot of seismologists’ offices :-)

How does one become an “earthquake enthusiast”? What college offers a degree in “earthquake enthusiasm”?

Perhaps Al Gore cut one?
