Scientists Found a 1,700 Mile Crack Across the USA. Here’s What You Need to Know

Is America at risk for Great earthquakes spanning across the full United States? “Cracks Across America”, in Rift zones, may conceal large fracture type faults where scientists may not be able to identify where these hidden fractures may unleash catastrophic earthquakes.

LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) – In Nov 1981, a study was published that rocked the scientific world, and sparked concern in FEMA circles, in which a 1,700 mile “Crack Across America” was discovered. Worse yet, this crack cuts through the New Madrid Seismic Zone, where in 1811 and 1812 three giant earthquakes devastatingly struck the center of America. Scientists have been struggling, since then, to answer the question of what risk this mega feature may pose to our heartland today. Recently, and less known, is a study from an independent geologic research set of work [2], that has identified a possible second “Crack Through America” that crosses into and through the same volatile New Madrid Seismic Zone.

The original 1,700 mile “Crack Across America” was found using modern day gravity mapping satellite data, and using computers, to process the measurements [1]. In 1981, Dr. Raymond E. Arvidson of Washington University in St. Louis used data processing techniques where 600,000 discrete gravity measurements, from 20 years of scientific data gathering, to synthesize a map. The results revealed an astonishing ancient rift in the North American crust that extends some 1,700 miles from Idaho to the southern Appalachian Mountains. New discoveries, from more recent research, has extended this “Crack” anomaly in where it combines with a MegaShear [3] zone to the middle of Washington State and possibly with the Olympic-Wallowa Lineament (OWL) [2] – which reaches to the Pacific Ocean near Port Angeles Washington. Thus the total length may total nearly 2,200 miles.

This ancient rift, estimated to be a billion years old, was dubbed the “Missouri Gravity Low” in the eastern most section of the “Crack Across America”. Another rift, 60 miles by 30 miles, underlying the Mississippi river valley, called the “Reelfoot Rift”, was found to cross through the Missouri Gravity Low and head to the northeast/southwest. These two rift zones intersect at the New Madrid Seismic Zone. Over 4,000 small earthquakes have been mapped within these intersecting “rift” regions since 1974.

A maverick geologist, Jack Reed, performed a study in mapping the frequency and location of larger magnitude earthquakes trending along the northeast trending lineament of the “ReelFoot Rift”. The resulting data indicated another concerning revelation – that a possible second “Crack Through America” connects the Reelfoot Rift with the well known St. Lawrence rift zone in Canada. Just as the New Madrid Seismic zone revealed its active potential in its “rift zones”, a magnitude 7.9 earthquake, in 1663, struck near Charlevoix and revealed its power in the St. Lawrence rift zone.

Perhaps a partial clue to what may link to the existence and nature of the “Crack Across America” and the “Crack Through America” is the Midcontinential Rift (MCR) System. Research has identified that a movement direction of the MCR, from tremendous intraplate pressure, forced a southern expansion of this large rift, where the southern edge traversed directly towards the New Madrid Seismic Zone. The Midcontinental Rift thus forms a horseshoe that straddles and reaches, by its tips, at or near the two major “Crack” lineaments. Intraplate pressure could be intensified into these intersecting lineaments, including the resulting pressure(s) at the New Madrid Seismic Zone.

Fig 1. 1,700 mile to 2,200 mile "Crack Across America", "Crack Through America", and Midcontinental Rift (MCR)

What can make these – 70-90 mile wide and thousands of miles long – low gravity crack lineament features so dangerous is their hidden fractures, buried in the earth’s crust below. These low gravity areas are called “Rift zones” where the continental crust tried to pull itself apart, but failed. The thinning of the crust enabled lighter density young rock to intrude, thus resulting in the lower gravity characteristics in the rift zones. Other recent studies have suggested that the thinning of the crust may occur from the delamination of heavier crustal rock “falling” down into the earth’s mantle. However, in the case of linear features of these long distance “lineament rift zones”, the case of random delamination from “falling” into the mantle would not be able to explain these highly organized structures.

What is known, is that these linear rift zones have exhibited the ability to unleash very large earthquakes. This has been aptly demonstrated by the three 1811-1812 New Madrid M7-M8 earthquakes and the large 1663 M7.9 Charlevoix Earthquake. Since the regularity of such earthquakes are measured in centuries, scientists are unable to identify if any section of these linear rift zones may be at risk of a sudden large earthquake.

The bigger the length and depth of a buried fracture and its subsequent pressure induced release, the greater the chances for this rupture to unleash a giant earthquake. Indeed, the three 1811 to 1812 M7-M8 earthquakes had rupture release areas comparable to any single biggest locked segment of the San Andreas CA fault region could do – except in the New Madrid quakes, it did it all in the same location with each huge quake spaced only a month apart. With thousands of miles of possible buried fractures within these lineaments, it’s possible that changes in intraplate pressure may be all that is necessary to activate a segment. Another unanswered question is if Yellowstone Supervolcano is susceptible or interactive with this lineament. Indeed, in 2002, geologists observed distant triggering of earthquake swarming at Yellowstone from the M7.9 Denali Alaska earthquake [4]. As the Denali earthquake was 2,000 miles distant, what would happen if a large earthquake within a rift zone lineament was much closer to Yellowstone? Certainly it would be useful to know if there were any susceptible buried fractures in the nearby lineament that traverses near Yellowstone Supervolcano.

Fig 2. Reelfoot Rift zone image mapped via magnetometer data with overlay of thousands of small earthquakes (red dots). Map shows the northeast trending "Crack Through America" intersection at New Madrid Seismic Zone - follows line of earthquakes.

However, scientists are placed at a disadvantage, in earthquake risk assessment, since any hidden fractures are buried deep in what is called the “Midcontinental Basement”. Without having any data to the size, length, and number of any hidden fractures, it renders any risk analysis “blind”. Only a paleogeologic assessment of past locations, patterns, frequency, and magnitude of earthquakes are scientists able to form a type of a risk assessment. Compounding any risk assessment is understanding the rupture process of these hidden fractures. Scientists refer to these as “Intraplate earthquakes” as the quake occurs within the interior of a tectonic plate. Pressure, within the buried fracture (i.e. “fault”), may instigate an earthquake. GPS, strain sensors, and even inSAR (interferometric Synthetic Aperature Radar) are of no use to proffering answers to these questions as these fractures are inaccessible since they are deep below – while the sediment or crust above hides any telltale sign of crustal creep or stress.

Fig 3. Estimates of the severe impact from a study commissioned by FEMA if a New Madrid Earthquake of M7.7 were to occur.

Because of risk assessment uncertainty, FEMA and other emergency agencies are left to estimating the risk to America’s infrastructure based on a worst case paleogeologic history (i.e. the maximum at any moment). Indeed, in 1999, FEMA listed as one of the major top four hazards in the United States, as “catastrophic”, would be a giant earthquake striking the central U.S.

Because scientists are unable to predict the timing nor the location of the next large earthquake in these Rift zones, there is a difference of viewpoints, regarding cost tradeoffs of implementation and/or upgrades of rigorous seismic building codes, between the scientific community and the emergency management organizations. Complicating this situation is that earthquakes, that occur in the central or eastern United States, affect much larger areas than similar magnitudes in the western United States. The FEMA guide references that the 1906 M7.8 San Francisco CA earthquake was felt 350 miles away in the middle of Nevada. In contrast, the 1811 New Madrid Earthquake was reported to have rung church bells in Boston, Massachusetts, 1,000 miles away. Differences in the geologic makeup of the earth’s crust east and west of the Rocky Mountains are noted to be the cause of this stronger conduction of the earthquake’s P-waves and S-waves creating the distant shaking contrast.

As the rate of earthquakes have been increasing in the New Madrid Seismic Zone and in other parts of the Central United States, such as in Oklahoma, there are concerns that intraplate tectonic pressure may be driving these trends. Other areas, such as the Wabash Valley and East Tennessee Seismic zones also produce earthquakes on a regular basis. Quoting from the CUSEC – “Depending on earthquake magnitude and location, each of these zones could impact multiple states, causing major physical, social and economic disruption in a region that is home to more than forty million people.”… “On April 18, 2008, a magnitude 5.4 earthquake struck near Mt. Carmel, Illinois. This relatively minor earthquake was felt in 28 states and Canada and was responsible for an estimated $3 million in non-structural damages and damaged at least 240 structures in Illinois alone. The Mt. Carmel earthquake shows the widespread impact a larger earthquake might have on the region”

Scientists now believe the Eastern U.S. could have a major quake of its own, and events like the New Madrid Great quakes may happen again, but there is no way to guess where or when.

(NEW UPDATE) Worldwide Situational Update!!! PROJECT INCENSION


Note: This update was previously posted with several other video’s covering imminent earth changes. At this stage, I feel the data  is worthy of a replay for those who missed the first post. This is info you can try showing to people who are waking-up, or still unaware of what’s unfolding with the planet.

I showed it to a friend last week, he left my house rather dazed and confused that evening – it was evident the data presented definitely impacted his perspective of the world 🙂

Much love, {~A~}

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Some Alaskans were woken up in the middle of the night by a 7.1-magnitude earthquake that rattled buildings, knocked out power for thousands, and led to some evacuations.

The earthquake struck Sunday at 1:30 a.m. local time in the area of Old Iliamna, about 162 miles south of Anchorage, said the U.S. Geological Survey. The Alaska Earthquake Center recorded about 30 aftershocks in the first two-and-a-half hours after the quake. The largest, at 3:37 a.m. local time, was measured at magnitude 4.3.

There is no threat of a tsunami as a result of the quake. There have been no reports of injuries so far.

At least 10,000 people lost power in the Anchorage area. The city’s fire department said in a tweet that it is “very busy with reports of gas odors, alarm systems sounding, broken water lines, etc.”

Residents of 20 homes in the Kenai Peninsula were evacuated following reports of gas leaks, according to Alaska’s KTUU-TV. The earthquake damaged Kalifornsky Beach Road ,http://www.theatlantic.com/national/a…

7/17/2015 Earthquake Overview and Global Forecast: USA, EU, Asia, South America ~ Dutchsinse


Renewed activity has again begun to appear across the Pacific, extending across the North American Craton.

A new article is circulating in the Main Stream Media regarind a “mega-quake” which could strike the Pacific Northwest Cascadia subduction zone. Fearmongering talk by the media saying Seattle will be destroyed, and everything West of I-5 from Washington to California would be destroyed.

http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/201…

Some media even saying PEOPLE SHOULD MOVE from the West coast (smh + facepalm)!

https://www.facebook.com/ShepardSmith…

Move? Huh? Wow, really? Over reaction beyond measure.. instead of moving.. have an earthquake plan, and know what to do in low lying areas near the ocean!

http://www.dutchsinse.com

These reports (in my opinion) is highly fear laced, and should be decried for being alarmist in the outlandish media suppositions.

People talking about 100-600 foot tall waves, and M9.2 earthquakes along the Cascadia which will devastate the West coast?

While this is a remote possibility, we have a much greater chances of 6.0 – 8.0M earthquakes in the region which will NOT send giant waves to shore, but will cause water / food / power shortages.

______

We have a current forecast threat for 6.0M earthquake activity over the next 7 days to strike between North California and the Axial seamount off the shores of Washington State.

Also on watch, the far SW United States reaching into Baja Mexico — watching for 4.0M to 5.0M activity over the next 7 days.

New 4.0M movement should begin again at the Oklahoma / Kansas fracking operations.

New 3.0M to 4.0M activity should hit the Southern United States again near Mississippi / Alabama.

New 3.0M to 4.0M activity should hit the far Northeast United States (Southeast Canada) near the Quebec border.

New 4.0M activity should strike at multiple volcanic locations in California, Nevada, Oregon, Arizona, and Utah.

Each location should see a small swarm which makes it stand out compared to single earthquake events elsewhere.

In the West Pacific, watch Central Japan along the Izu Trench, Southward to Okinawa. Watch Fiji to Soloman Island as well.. both areas should see renewed mid 6.0M range earthquakes.

Watch also for new deep earthquakes which could add larger earthquakes into the mix. Currently still just 1 deep earthquake in the past 7 days (as of July 17, 2015 1130am CDT).

Watch the Eastern India border for at least 1 5.0M event, could lead upwards of 6.0M .

Watch West of India at the Afghanistan Tajikistan border for at least one (most likely a swarm) of moderate to large earthquakes (West of Kathmandu).

Europe, Greece should see renewed mid M5.0 to low M6.0 activity.. English Channel should see at least one M3.0 to M4.0 event.. may be along the shores of France instead of the Channel, or could be just a bit North near London.

Central and South America — be on watch for new developments near the border of Chile + Peru… could be a single larger event in the upper 6.0 range.

All of this should occur in the next 7-9 days from today (7/17/2015). Giving an additional 2 day window in case we see more deep earthquakes in the West Pacific.

6/21/2015 — Deep M6.5 earthquake in the West Pacific — Asthenosphere movement showing yet again


Link submitted by Linda, mahalo!

After a period of relative “calm” in the Asthenosphere , which lasted approximately 1 week, over the past few days we have now seen TWO deep earthquakes below Fiji / Tonga in the West Pacific.

asthenosphere june 21 2015a

________

The Asthenosphere is an area of semi-melted magma located below the plates / lithosphere / Earth’s crust.

As we have seen in the past, when there is deep movement in the Asthenosphere, the activity is usually followed up by SHALLOW earthquake activity in a nearby adjacent area within a few days of the deep event.

Here is a video explanation of the Asthenosphere movement:

Thus, we need to watch the nearby adjacent areas to these two deep M6.0+ earthquakes for possible shallow larger seismic activity over the next several days.

4/25/2015 — North Japan ALERT — Land RISES 50 feet (1000 feet long) OVERNIGHT


UPDATE – NHK report was typed (by them) wrong? Says 300 meters HEIGHT in the NHK article. Other articles say 15 meters high. It looks taller than 40 feet… hmm.. some reports saying 10 meters WIDE.. other reports saying 30 meters WIDE… hmm..

Regardless of the difference in footage, ANY footage moving upwards in Japan is worthy of note. Normally the crust moves in millimeters and inches.. not meters and feet!

Full website post with screenshots and the original story from Japanese main stream media:

http://dutchsinse.com/4252015-land-ri…

In my 5 years of covering events online, covering all major earthquakes, we have NEVER seen a 1 day rise of 1,000 feet (300meters) of anything.. worthy to note !

_____

A massive sudden (1 day) rise of land from the sea has occurred along the coast of Hokkaido Japan.

Major global earthquake activity is taking place, and serious crustal movement is obviously underway in the region around North Japan.

The new land began rising from the sea yesterday morning (April 24, 2015) with just a 1 meter rise (3 feet), then began rising rapidly, the event is still ongoing as of April 25th into 26th 2015.

The new land mass has now risen over 50 feet and 300 meters long (near 1,000 feet), and near 10 meters wide (30 feet)! Not ‘small’ by any means, and a very rare occurrence to top it off.

This is being attributed to crustal movement in the area.

3/26/2014 Yellowstone Magma Chamber Animals Leaving Yellowstone? What Do They Know We Don’t Know?


Note: It’s been a few months since I closely followed earthquake monitoring, since then global seismic activity has continued to rise in tandem with the rising consciousness tsunami. As people around the world wake up, the “system” fights back. In the process the planet responds to cleanse, purge and clear out the chaos manifesting within the consciousness of billions of people as they move through the shift into a new paradigm. These changes are natural and nothing to fear, the consciousness of Mother Earth is moving humanity through planetary change as smoothly as possible.

Staying positive, grounded with the Earth and in alignment with your inner core BE-ing will guide you through any upheaval your region may experience. Much love to all!

friend Tom Lupshu just released the 1st video below in which he warns us that nearly one quarter of the northern elk herd at Yellowstone National Park are missing according to the annual winter count. We learn that biologists aren’t sure if there has been a stunning decline in the herd to account for these missing numbers or if there are other factors at play. Tom also shares with us that helium releases are now at 1000 times above normal while a complete media blackout also exists.

Animals Leaving Yellowstone? What Do They Know We Don’t Know? by TAT’S 2 MIN NEWS

 

———————————————————————–

While it has been said that animals often give us warnings far ahead of earth changing events, Yellowstone recently witnessed herds of bison running for their lives on the public roadways (as shown in the 2nd video below) that WERE NOT being chased or rounded up. Are these animals now detecting something potentially vast and deadly? The Yellowstone Supervolcano is the only thing there that would fit the bill. Tom warns that we should watch these animals and watch them very closely as they will always give us a heads up before an event. Are all of these events signs that the Yellowstone caldera is about to blow?

3/26/2014 — Volcanic Earthquakes — Yellowstone and California — Animals giving warning?

 

 

Over the past 48 hours, a noticeable increase in seismic activity has occurred across the Western United States.

 

Specifically, a swarm of earthquakes has occurred extending from the Western edge of the Yellowstone magma chamber, now Eastward into the center of the National Park itself.

 

This building pressure is now manifesting as multiple 3.0M+ earthquakes, all at a 3.0mile or greater depth inside the Yellowstone magma chamber.

 

As if Yellowstone were not enough, the pressure is also translating to earthquakes occurring farther Southwest from Yellowstone, along the deformed edge of the North American Craton, extending into Central California , along the subduction zone of the North American Plate (and the Pacific Plate).

The above screenshots show the past 2 United States earthquakes greater than 3.0M. One inside the Yellowstone supervolcano, the other at an “unnamed” volcano in California.

 


 

Video update on the current Yellowstone movement from tatoott1009 here:

 

 

 


 

The heavy earthquake activity along the West Coast of the United States , over the past few weeks, has now translated in the craton displacement that we were expecting.

 

The earthquakes inside the magma chamber at Yellowstone, and the earthquakes now occurring at dormant volcanic chains along South / Central California, mean we can expect further activity in the near term to INCREASE.

 

The increase in activity along the edge of the craton will continue into the near term future due to the overall Pacific displacement occurring internationally.

 

Until things cool off internationally in the West Pacific, we can expect sizable displacement to occur along our plate in North America.  This means, Yellowstone, Colorado, Oklahoma, and other areas along the edge of the edge of the craton need to be aware of the possibility of movement in the near term.

 

Also.. the odd man out, Southern California , near Baja, sits primed, and now showing slight volcanic chamber activity.  Expect Salton Sea and Mono Lake to be showing some movement soon.

 

Earlier this past week.. we made note of the multiple UNREPORTED earthquakes at Yellowstone..

Move forward a few days, and the USGS is now on top of things apparently.  Either that, or the movement is now becoming undeniable.

 

In other news from the region, last week, reports of odd Bison (buffalo) movements exiting the park..

 

Were the animals trying to tell us something?

Yellowstone Magma Chamber Earthquake Swarm — USGS Censoring Activity 3/25/2014

Over the past week, several reports have been coming in from viewers, telling me to check the charts in Yellowstone. People saying the charts are showing UNREPORTED activity on multiple stations across the famous Supervolcano (national park).

Indeed, activity was occurring this past week, but NOT being counted on the USGS public feeds as earthquakes.

Earthquakes at Yellowstone not being reported? What is this madness?

After checking the actual charts, indeed it is confirmed, there has been earthquake movement GREATER than 2.5M across the area, the charts do not lie……

Here are a couple examples of the activity NOT showing on public feeds as “earthquakes”.. yet clearly some actual movement is occurring : (censored?)

Move forward a few days, now currently March 25, 2014 — after the flurry of UNREPORTED activity — and now the USGS is showing THREE 3.0M+ events over the past 24 hours.

Coming from the Western edge of the Yellowstone Magma Chamber (click to view full size) :

yellowstone swarm march 25 2014

 

The magma chamber for the supervolcano has been found to extend further West than originally thought. Confirmed now via subterranean “soundings” taken via ground penetrating RADAR, the chamber extends as far West as the Oregon State Line.


Compare the “reported” 3.0M+ events shown on the charts below, to the charts over the past few days, shown above.

The charts above show similar sized activity. However no earthquakes were reported at Yellowstone corresponding to the charts above.

This means censorship is occurring at some point. The earthquakes on the charts earlier this week, were not reported as earthquakes to the public.

Move forward 2-3 days… March 24, 2014 .. THREE earthquakes, greater than 3.0M, now showing on the Yellowstone charts, and also being publicly admitted on the USGS feeds.

Wall of rock rises out of the ground in the Philippines: new fault triggered large quake


 

 

 
Residents stand next to a long earthen wall which formed following the Oct. 15 earthquake in Barangay Anonang in Inabanga, Bohol. Phivolcs scientists said the wall is the face of a previously unknown fault line which caused the magnitude 7.2 quake
October 24, 2013PHILIPPINESAs the magnitude 7.2 earthquake ended on Oct. 15, residents of Sitio Kumayot in Barangay Anonang heard an explosive sound like a thunderclap. Villagers watched in horrified disbelief as the ground cracked open and, with smoke and the stench of sulphur spreading, one side started to rise. The emerging wall of rock and earth missed by a hairline the toilet of baker Menecia Bautista Aparecio, 43. “We will be living forever in fear, being so close to the fault line,” said Aparecio, who fears returning to her home and now bakes her “pan Bisaya” or “pan kinamot,” a local bread, in the village chapel. The rock face, about three meters high and two kilometers long, raised fears among villagers that more cracks would appear on the ground and swallow them up. Scientists, who may declare a 300-meter permanent danger zone around the fault, described the appearance of the ground rupture as a “eureka” moment in their search for what they have long suspected was an active earthquake fault in the area. Government scientists said the appearance of the yet unnamed fault, which does not exist on the country’s map of fault lines, triggered the powerful earthquake in Central Visayas. “We are 100 percent sure that this is the generator (of the earthquake),” Teresito Bacolcol told GMA 7 as he noted that the rock face appeared near the quake’s epicenter at the boundary of Sagbayan and Catigbian towns. “When we saw (the fault), eureka! This is it.” Bacolcol led a team from the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs), which inspected the rock face last Monday. “We recommend that no structures should be built on top of a fault and within the five-meter buffer zone on both sides of the fault,” Phivolcs director Renato Solidum told The STAR. He also urged the local government of Bohol to revise its land use policy around the fault. –Philstar
Geologists from the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) found “ground zero” or the fault that triggered the devastating magnitude 7.2 earthquake. The discovery on Monday confirmed the existence of a previously unknown fault in western Bohol. The Oct. 15 earthquake claimed around 200 lives and caused major infrastructure damage, including Spanish-era churches in Bohol and Cebu. Immediately after the earthquake, Phivolcs said the tremor was caused by the movement of the East Bohol Fault. The epicenter, first reported as Carmen town, was later adjusted to the general area between Sagbayan and Catigbian towns in north central Bohol based on the distribution of aftershocks. Geologists found a 5-kilometer surface rupture that extended from barangay Anonang in Inabanga town to barangay New Anonang in Buenavista town. “That fault motion caused the earthquake,” Renato Solidum, director of Phivolcs told ABS-CBN News Channel’s Talkback yesterday morning. The ground rupture pushed the ground upward from two to three meters, cutting through mountains, roads and possibly settlement areas. Phivolcs teams are still studying the extent of the fault line which could extend 100 kilometers or longer.

Meanwhile, aftershocks recorded by Phivolcs indicate a general distribution from north Bohol to the offshores of Dalaguete, Alcoy and Boljoon towns in southern Cebu. The data was plotted on a map by Jessie Alaivar Floren, a private Geographic Informatino System expert in Cebu. Aside from structural damage, residents in southern Cebu towns of Alegria and Badian and Carcar City have complained that ground water turned to “milo” brown. “The earthquake may have disturbed the clay-limestone land formations in these areas, affecting their water table and underground water channels,” said Jun Lucero, senior geologist of the DENR Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB). Lucero told Cebu Daily News that they are now checking reports of possible liquefaction in several areas in Cebu and Bohol. Severe liquefaction could result in the sinking or submersion of lands, he  said. Areas near the river and those reclaimed from the sea are more prone to liquefaction, Lucero said. Structures in reclaimed areas, he said, should have stronger foundations and must use materials that can withstand strong ground shaking and liquefaction.  –Inquirer

Tension mounting on Pacific Plate: region of Kamchatka rocked by scores of earthquakes


 

 

Kamchatka May 19
May 20, 2013 KAMCHATKA A massive earthquake swarm has occurred in the region of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy, Russia. More than 20 earthquakes have struck the region in the last 22 hours- the strongest of which was a 5.9 magnitude earthquake, which rattled the seafloor at a depth of 16.5 km deep. The latest seismic flare-up along this region reflects growing agitation on one of the planet’s largest tectonic plates- the Pacific plate. Increasing seismic volatility along this region of Kamchatka could have serious ramifications for every tectonic plate that comes into contact with the Pacific plate- from the South Pacific to South America. A similar, more intense earthquake swarm occurred along the periphery of the Pacific Plate near the Santa Cruz Islands in February of this year. Is the Pacific plate on the verge of a large-scale change?
The geology of the region: The Kuril-Kamchatka arc extends approximately 2,100 km from Hokkaido, Japan, along the Kuril Islands and the Pacific coast of the Kamchatka Peninsula to its intersection with the Aleutian arc near the Commander Islands, Russia. It marks the region where the Pacific plate subducts into the mantle beneath the Okhotsk micro-plate, part of the larger North American plate. This subduction is responsible for the generation of the Kuril Islands chain, active volcanoes located along the entire arc, and the deep offshore Kuril-Kamchatka trench. Relative to a fixed North America plate, the Pacific plate is moving towards the northwest at a rate that increases from 75 mm/year near the northern end of the arc to 83 mm/year in the south. Plate motion is predominantly convergent along the Kuril-Kamchatka arc with obliquity increasing towards the southern section of the arc. The subducting Pacific plate is relatively old, particularly adjacent to Kamchatka where its age is greater than 100 Ma. Consequently, the Wadati-Benioff zone is well defined to depths of approximately 650 km. The central section of the arc is comprised of an oceanic island arc system, which differs from the continental arc systems of the northern and southern sections. Oblique convergence in the southern Kuril arc results in the partitioning of stresses into both trench-normal thrust earthquakes and trench-parallel strike-slip earthquakes, and the westward translation of the Kuril forearc. This westward migration of the Kuril forearc currently results in collision between the Kuril arc in the north and the Japan arc in the south, resulting in the deformation and uplift of the Hidaka Mountains in central Hokkaido. The Kuril-Kamchatka arc is considered one of the most seismically active regions in the world. Deformation of the overriding North America plate generates shallow crustal earthquakes, whereas slip at the subduction zone interface between the Pacific and North America plates generates interplate earthquakes that extend from near the base of the trench to depths of 40 to 60 km. At greater depths, Kuril-Kamchatka arc earthquakes occur within the subducting Pacific plate and can reach depths of approximately 650 km. –USGS


Nuked #100 Sonic Booms and Crustal Shifts: The United Knowledge

Episode 100 air date March 14th, 2013

The United Knowledge from youtube (aka Bending Light on GLP) joins us for a discussion of boom events from a historical perspective, relations to other booms via news reports, birds dropping from the sky, buoy data, earthquakes, and sun activity all occurring around the same time each year. What does it mean? In a nutshell, a possible New Madrid adjustment could be in the works. There are key indicators that will likely increase prior to such an event.

Recent event March 13, 2013: http://tiverton.patch.com/articles/ne…

“An earthquake in upstate New York could be to blame for the mysterious house-shaking boom that residents across Tiverton, Little Compton and Westport reported feeling on Wednesday night. At approximately 8:40 p.m. on Wednesday, March 13, residents across the region dialed 911 to inform their local police station of a strange, earth-shaking phenomenon. Homeowners from Crandall Road in Tiverton down to the Little Compton Commons reported feeling a brief earth-shaking boom. According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS) a 2.3 magnitude earthquake was recorded in Indian Lake, New York – a short distance from the Vermont-New York state line.
On the government website, readers as far as Tiverton, Little Compton and Westport reported feeling after shocks from the quake.”

Petras Romanus: The New Pontiff


Another episode of “As the Vatican Turns”

Courtesy goes to Susan Rennison for uncovering the truth behind the new Popes connection to Petrus Romanus, prophesized by St. Malachy as the last Pope. Did they think being sneaky would allow them to escape Church prophecy,not to mention their own personal  karma for crimes against humanity?

Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio elected pontiff, takes name Pope Francis – live
• ‘There is great brotherhood in the world,’ new pope says
• Shock decision from papal conclave
• First Jesuit pope, first pope from South America

Guardian, 14th March 2013
(After a few seconds of silent prayer, he then delivered his blessing). • Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, of Argentina, has been elected as the Catholic Church’s new Pope, Francis.
• The 76-year-old from Buenos Aires is the first non-European pope in the modern era.
• His election has been welcomed by millions of Catholics worldwide, particularly in South America.
• World and religious leaders congratulated the new pope.
• Bergoglio is also the first Jesuit to be pontiff.
• He is the first pope to take the name Francis.
[…]
He then concluded:

Tomorrow I want to go to pray to the Madonna so that she protects all of Rome. Good night and have a good rest.

Comment:
I was interested in Pope Francis praying for protection… I am sure he knows about the prophecies… A lot of people are trying to reconcile Pope Francis with the Prophecy of the Popes… There is a lot of rubbish but I was impressed with the following

BERG (German)……….Mountain
GOGLIO (Italian)…….Pride

Pride of the mountain / Pride of the rock & The main Jesuit church is in Rome…
From Tom Horn’s website:

RNN NOTE: That Bergoglio–the final Pope on St. Malachy’s list and the one prophesied to reign over the church as it enters the Great Tribulation period–named himself after Saint Francis of Assisi is intriguing given that shortly before his death Assisi prophesied that at the time of the tribulation a man would “be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavor to draw many into error and death… Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it…for in those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor, but a destroyer” [Works of the Seraphic Father St. Francis of Assisi (1182–1226), Washbourne, 1882 AD, 248]. 

Furthermore, in naming himself after Assisi, Bergoglio branded himself after an Italian (Roman) priest whose original name was Francesco di Pietro (Peter) di Bernardoneliterally, Peter the Roman.

Indo-Australian plate adjustments connected to Lower Americas 6 times in a row! Ongoing sequence!


People in the alternative community have been predicting a major shift in the Indo-Australian plate for some time, here’s the proof somethings happening. Our job is to send balancing, soothing Light energy focused on the affected regions to help Gaia move through the shift with ease without a cataclysmic event. If all of humanity were awakened, it would be a much smoother transition with everyone focusing loving intentions on the planet.

Lance works hard to present factual data to support his work, yet the disinfo trolls give him a rough time…so he goes the extra mile to prove his point.

The Twin 8+ earthquakes that hit Sumatra, Indonesia April 11th, 2012 triggered a global chain reaction, that was scientifically admitted and sources are given.
By using the April 11th, 2012 Sumatra event as a background basis of an already scientifically admitted occurrence of the Indo-Australian plate triggering global seismic transference basically this video covers a plate movement sequence that has indeed been ongoing all originating from that very region.
There’s a pending Indo-Australian plate adjustment that’s nearing being there’s been ongoing minor adjustments since last April, what does that mean and what does that mean for the Lower Americas.. well the data speaks for itself.

Earth reeling from nine major earthquakes, striking in 5 days


SC 4
February 2, 2013EARTH – An earthquake of magnitude 6.7 struck off the coast of the Solomon Islands (Santa Cruz) in the Pacific Ocean, the U.S. Geological Survey said on Friday. The quake was later downgraded by the USGS to a 6.3 magnitude event. The depth of the quake was 10 km (6.2 miles) and the epicenter was 68 km southwest of Lata. The quake hit at 9:16 a.m. local time on Saturday. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center did not immediately issue any alerts on its website. This quake was underscored by an even  stronger 6.9 magnitude earthquake that just struck the Hokkaido region of East Japan on February 2nd. This is the ninth major earthquake to strike the planet in the last five days. The present cluster of earthquakes began with a 6.0 event in Eastern Kazakhstan on January 28th, following a full moon on January 27, 2013. Perhaps, it may not be readily apparent to most that our planet appears to now be inching towards the spectrum of some major cataclysmic event. This approaching black swan occurrence is characterized by the gradual escalation of geological activity of a violent seismic and volcanic nature. 44 volcanic eruptive events have already been recorded for the month of January; where there was only 77 chronicled for the entire year of 2012. The on-going volcanic activity in Kamchatka also provides compelling testament that massive changes are now taking place within the planet’s interior. No less than 4 volcanoes on the Far Eastern peninsula of Kamchatka are erupting simultaneous, though all the volcanoes lie in relative close proximity to each other (with a 110 km radius). Even more interesting, the magma flow fueling each volcanic system appears to emanting from a separate magma source. However, what’s even more disconcerting is the fact that  Plosky Tolbachik volcano awakened from 40 years of dormancy and is now ejecting massive rivers of lava across the landscape of Kamchatka. Russian scientists attest this is the first time rivers of lava have ever flowed from one of the Kamchatka volcanoes during the Holocene period. Large-scale protracted effusive eruptions, such as these, are generally fueled by a deep magma source. Most originate from a magma plume from deep inside the planet’s crust. Both of the planet’s volcanoes, which have had large effusive eruptions in the past, Kileaua (Hawaii) and Mount Etna (Italy) both lie over magma plumes- Kamchatka’s Plosky Tolbchik volcano does not. Kamchatka peninsula, which has a total land mass that is slightly larger than Germany, is one of the most active parts of the infamous “Ring of Fire,” the zone of volcanic and seismic activity that encircles the Pacific Ocean. Three tectonic plates — the North American Plate, the Okhotsk Plate, and the Pacific Plate — collide beneath Kamchatka, with the peninsula’s coastal range boasting 30 active volcanoes. The crust is thinning here, and is becoming more fractured, as seismic stresses increase.

SC 3

Ominous change in the South Pacific: The Santa Cruz seismic swarms are unfolding against an even more complex geological backdrop. Consequently, the effects of this massive seismic upheaval signals ominous change for the entire Pacific basin. To the west, the Indo-Australian plate is breaking up, after the largest strike-slip earthquakes ever recorded, struck off the coast of Indonesia in April of 2012. The Solomon Sea Plate, to the east, is an oceanic crustal plate remnant, which is disappearing into two subduction zones, one to its north, the other on its southwest margin. Its southeast margin runs along the Woodlark Rise, undefined compressive zone, which may be a transform fault marking the boundary with the adjoining Woodlark Plate. The northern subduction zone is located where the Solomon Plate is diving below the South Bismarck Plate to the northwest and the Pacific Plate to the northeast. The northwest part of the subduction zone is called the New Britain Subduction Zone. New Britain in Papua New Guinea is the volcanic island formed from this collision and resulting volcanism. The southwestern subduction zone is where the Solomon Pate is diving below the Indo-Australian Plate. According to scientists, the Indo-Australian plate may in the process of breaking up, and this heightened activity around the Santa Cruz Islands is placing additional pressures on a tectonic plate, already exhibiting strains of fracturing. We should continue to watch the region of Indonesia for massive changes to come, including very large-scale volcanic eruptions. Nearly all of the planet’s current 15 tectonic plates, and in some cases, sub-plates and volcanic arcs are heavily stressed by the recent violent mobility of tectonic plates shaken by earthquakes. I’ve never quite seen a pattern this fraught with potential hazards or as heavily laden with seismic tension. The planet is now experiencing a major geological crisis, and it’s showing some indication of worsening. –The Extinction Protocol

15 Signs That The Ring Of Fire Is Waking Up As We Head Into 2013


By Michael, on December 18th, 2012

Ring Of Fire

While most of the world has been focused on other things, the Ring of Fire has been quietly waking up.  Over the past couple of months, there has been a steady string of noteworthy volcanic eruptions and earthquakes that have occurred along the perimeter of the Pacific Ocean.  But because none of them have happened near a highly populated area, we really haven’t heard much about them in the news.  But if activity along the Ring of Fire continues to increase, it is inevitable that a major event will happen near a major city at some point.  When that happens, the entire world will be focused on the Ring of Fire once again.  Most people don’t realize that approximately 90 percent of all earthquakes and approximately 75 percent of all volcanic eruptions occur along the Ring of Fire.  The entire west coast of the United States sits along the Ring of Fire and a massive network of faults runs underneath California, Oregon and Washington.  Fortunately, the west coast has not experienced any devastating seismic events in recent years, but scientists assure us that will change at some point.  So it is important to sit up and take notice when there are reports of increasing activity along the Ring of Fire.

Unfortunately, most Americans cannot even tell you what the Ring of Fire is.  The following is how Wikipedia defines the “Ring of Fire”…

The Pacific Ring of Fire (or sometimes just the Ring of Fire) is an area where large numbers of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur in the basin of the Pacific Ocean. In a 40,000 km (25,000 mi) horseshoe shape, it is associated with a nearly continuous series of oceanic trenches, volcanic arcs, and volcanic belts and/or plate movements.

It runs roughly along the rim of the Pacific Ocean.  Coastal residents of four different continents realize that a major event along the Ring of Fire could fundamentally change their lives in a single moment.

Nearly all of the worst earthquakes in modern history have occurred along the Ring of Fire.  When the Ring of Fire is very active, it is a very big deal.  That is why so many people are alarmed that the Ring of Fire seems to be entering a period of increased activity.

The following are 15 signs that the Ring of Fire is waking up as we head into 2013…

#1 Mount Lokon, which is located in Indonesia, has erupted more than 800 times since July.  On Monday, volcanic ash from the volcano reached heights of up to 10,000 feet.

#2 An “orange alert” had been issued for towns and villages near the Tungurahua volcano in Ecuador.  On Tuesday it erupted and shot lava up to a half mile above its crater.

#3 Lava is still flowing out of the Tolbachik volcano which is located on the Kamchatka Peninsula.  Anyone that has ever played the board game “Risk” knows where Kamchatka is located.

#4 Lava also continues to flow and ash also continues to rise from the Fuego volcano in Guatemala.

#5 On Tuesday, an ash plume more than 2.5 kilometers high had risen from the Paluweh volcano in Indonesia.

#6 There was an average of about 4 seismic events per hour at the Popocatépetl volcano in Mexico on Tuesday.

#7 Scientists recently discovered “one of the world’s weirdest volcanoes” on the floor of the ocean just off the coast of Baja, Mexico.

#8 Mt. Fuji (located not too far from Tokyo, Japan) has been dormant for about 300 years, but in recent months there have been increasing signs of activity there.  One study recently found that a “magma chamber under the mountain has come under immense pressure“, and one prominent scientist is warning that Mt. Fuji is due for “a big-scale explosive eruption“.  Authorities were alarmed when a tunnel leading to Mt. Fuji collapsed on December 2nd, killing 9 people.

#9 Scientists are now warning that there is a very dangerous build up of magma at a large number of Japan’s 110 active volcanoes.

#10 A magnitude-6.1 earthquake struck off the coast of Sulawesi, Indonesia on Monday.

#11 A magnitude-6.0 earthquake hit the New Britain region of Papua New Guinea on Saturday.

#12 A magnitude-6.5 earthquake struck the Gulf of Alaska in mid-November.

#13 A magnitude-7.3 earthquake hit Japan earlier this month.

#14 There has been a substantial increase in earthquake activity in the Long Valley caldera region of California, and authorities tell us that “magma is indeed moving down there“.

#15 Over one recent five week period, more than 170 significant earthquakes were detected in one town in Chile.  That town is now being called “one of the shakiest places on earth”.

All of those events occurred along the Ring of Fire.

So why is all of this happening?

Well, there are certainly a lot of theories out there.

In the United States, a large percentage of the population is convinced that an increase in natural disasters is evidence that we are in the “last days” described in the Bible.  In fact, one recent survey found that a whopping 36 percent of all Americans believe that the increase in natural disasters that we have seen in recent years is an indication that we are in the end times…

More than a third of Americans believe the severity of recent natural disasters is evidence that we are in the “end times” described in the New Testament — a period of turmoil preceding Jesus’ Second Coming and the end of the world.

“There is a significant proportion of Americans who see these phenomena through a theological lens,” said Daniel Cox, research director at the Public Religion Research Institute, which released a poll on religion and climate change on Thursday (Dec. 13) in partnership with Religion News Service.

“It’s hardly a fringe belief. It’s nearly four in 10 Americans who are embracing this,” Cox said.

The conviction is particularly strong among white evangelical Protestants (65 percent), and less common among Catholics (21 percent) and the religiously unaffiliated (15 percent).

Other Americans believe that there are other causes for all of these natural disasters, and a large number of Americans are absolutely convinced that nothing unusual is happening at all.

Earth cracking up under Indian Ocean


 

YOU may not have felt it, but the whole world shuddered on 11 April, as Earth’s crust began the difficult process of breaking a tectonic plate. When two huge earthquakes ripped through the floor of the Indian Ocean, they triggered large aftershocks on faults the world over, and provided the best evidence yet that the vast Indo-Australian plate is being torn in two.

Geologists have spent five months puzzling over the twin quakes – of magnitude 8.6 and 8.2 – which took place off the coast of North Sumatra. Events that large normally occur at the boundary between tectonic plates, where one chunk of Earth’s crust slides beneath another, but these were more than 100 kilometres from such a subduction zone. What’s more, both involved rocks grinding past each other sideways with very little vertical movement – what geologists call strike-slip earthquakes. Yet strike-slip quakes this large had never been reported before.

Matthias Delescluse at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris, France, and his colleagues have an explanation. They analysed quakes in the area since December 2004, when a magnitude-9.1 quake in a subduction zone near Sumatra triggered a devastating tsunami. They found earthquakes during this period were nearly 10 times more frequent compared with the previous eight years. What’s more, 26 of the quakes that happened between December 2004 and April 2011 were similar to the 11 April quakes in that they involved rocks being pushed and pulled in the same directions.

Taken together, the events suggest that the Indo-Australian plate is breaking up along a new plate boundary, say the researchers, and that may account for both the location and the size of April’s quakes (Nature, DOI: 10.1038/nature11520). Although both are currently on the same plate, Australia is moving faster than India. This is causing a broad area in the centre of the Indo-Australian plate to buckle. As a result, the plate may be splitting (see map).

John McCloskey at the University of Ulster in Coleraine, UK, is not yet convinced, saying the evidence from the April events is still too weak to support such a bold claim. But Lingsen Meng at the University of California, Berkeley, who studied the rupture pattern of the larger 11 April quake, is more confident. “I think it’s a fair argument that the 11 April earthquakes may mark the birth of a plate boundary,” he says. Things should become clearer as more earthquakes shake the region.

If they are anything like the 11 April events, the rest of the world may shake too. In another new study, Fred Pollitz at the US Geological Survey in Menlo Park, California, and his colleagues found that the global rate of quakes with a magnitude of 5.5 or greater increased almost fivefold in the six days after 11 April – something that has never been seen before, even after very large earthquakes (Nature, DOI: 10.1038/nature11504).

“This was the most powerful event [ever recorded] in terms of putting stress on other fault zones around the world,” Pollitz says.
