Volcanic Cone Collapses and Tsunamis

  • An unstable volcano is a potential source for a Tsunami.

  • Weakened and fractured material may give way and cause a collapse.

  • The most common cause is intrusion of magma, which causes a detachment.

  • Injection of magma into the interior of the volcano causes the volcanic cones to inflate, and the magma pushes out part of the volcano. Magma filling steep faults and fractures can provide a lubricated surface along which collapse may take place. The pore pressure within a volcano may increase owing to the presence of intruding magma, the volcano being squeezed by geological (tectonic) stresses; extra water within the volcano caused by increased rainfall, or a change in the local drainage system.

  • Earthquakes that "shake" the volcano.

  • Weakening of the volcano caused by heat and hot fluids in the interior of the volcano that alter hard volcanic rocks into soft clay.

  • Slippage along the surface on which the volcano is built, caused by a low-angle fault or lubricants such as clays or injected magma.

  • The volcano becomes too steep and high, regular volcanic eruptions pile more and more volcanic materials onto the upper slopes of the volcano which then is susceptible to collapse through gravity.

    Historical Cone Collapses in the Southwest Pacific

    Ritter (PNG) 1888. Major cone collapse without signs of volcanic eruptions
    led to the formation of a Tsunami 12 to 15 meters high on nearby islands. An early missionary
    map shows the positions of villages in western New Britain that no longer exist. Several
    hundred people were probably killed.

    Ambae (Vanuatu) 1913. A lateral collapse after a large earthquake generated a landslide that
    Caused possibly about 50 deaths.

    White Island (New Zealand) 1914. This volcano located 48 kilometers offshore from the
    North Island has a horse-shoe shaped crater just above sea-level. Part of the crater rim
    collapsed along a fault on or about September 10th and fell to the crater floor. There were 11
    fatalities. No Tsunamis were reported.

    Ruapehu (New Zealand) 1953. The upper portion of Ruapehu's crater wall failed on Christmas
    Eve releasing more than 1 million cubic meters of Crater Lake waters. The collapse was
    relatively small but resulted in a devastating lahar that swept away a railway bridge as the
    main Wellington-Auckland express train was crossing and 151 lives were lost in what has
    become known as the Tangwai Disaster.

    Tinakula (Solomon Islands) 1966. A landslide of unknown cause slipped into the sea from
    the high wall of an ancient avalance amphitheater. There may have been a Tsunami but no
    lives were lost.

    Lopevi (Vanuatu) 1975. A landslide associated with a lava flow from the summit crater
    plunged into the sea. No Tsunami was recorded but the residents have now been permanently evacuated.

    MT ULF UPDATE: April 9, 2005

    Note: The San Jacinto Fault Alert along with Inland Empire advisory continues to stay in effect. There was infrasonic harmonic activity below 2 Hz on Saturday. The Peak (Crustal) Infrasonic Harmonic Resonant Frequency was measured at 1.73 Hz (-74.06 dBv). The ULF and MT activity level was moderate to high during the past 24 hours. The inferred mean average unclamping level was unchanged during the past 24 hours. The ULF mean average was increased (positive). All daily charts were updated to reflect the latest analysis.

    Tonight's MT Peak Reading was measured at 10.3 units of regional lithospheric stress, which is the highest recorded this year, and last exceeded on November 28, 2004 by an 11.2 unit pulsation. Last March 28th, I detected an MT Pulse which appeared to be a precursor for today's M5.9 epicentered near Kodiak Island, AK. This is the fourth time that an MT pulse has preceded an earthquake in the region, beginning with the Nenana Mtn Quake on October 23, 2002, which was a foreshock to the November 3, 2002 Denali Fault Earthquake. The Aleutian Megathrust appears to be awakening and the nucleation source of many previous seismic events, including the June 21, 2004 Castle Mountain fault earthquake that was sharply felt in Anchorage, AK. I infer that the recent increase in activity from Southeastern AK and British Columbia(Queen Charlotte Islands) to the Interior of Alaska, is related to a build-up of deep crustal stress in the region. OTher ULF activity appears to be assocaited with the plate boundary in Southern California near Frazier Park, and from Northern Baja, CA Mexico. A long duration disturbance may have been related to a micro quake epicentered near Malibu and the coast of Southern California.

    Southern Alaska
    The New Moon and resulting Spring Tides occurred at 20:35 UTC on April 8, 2005; with a predicted differential of 15.71 feet, and a significant lunar-tidal phase angle(transition) between 10:15 UTC (04/09/2005) and 16:32 UTC (04/09/2005) along the coast of Southern Alaska. Today's M5.9 earthquake was right within the predicted window of maximum lunar-tidal phase angle (transition). Also, it was epicentered within the maximum 66 ft. seaward displacement zone that occured in 1964 during the second largest Megathrust earthquake in modern history. An operating magnetometer located on Kodiak Island, recorded a significant geomagnetic precursor within several hours of the Mw9.2 seismic event, which triggered a Tsunami that also caused a large amount of destruction in Anchorage/Valdez, Alaska and Crescent City, CA.

    M3.2 2005/04/12 13:53:15 UT 35.584N 120.870W d: 4.4 km ( 9 mi) WNW of Templeton, CA

    Once again, there were a couple of periods with ULF activity associated with the San Jacinto fault zone near Anza and Borrego Springs, CA.

    It's inferred that a step over of crustal stress out of the region from the Salton Sea to the Elsinore fault transfered to a secondary fault from Campo to El Cajon, CA which caused a magnitude 3.9 earthquake in its aftermath. The primary concern is the continuing build-up and nucleation of crustal stress out of the San Jacinto fault zone via step-over being focused towards the Northern Baja California, Mexico to Southern California coastal region, and the active Newport-Inglewood & Rose Canyon faults. Also, the previously reported ULF activity was from near both Fontana and Cabazon, CA at it's most northern and closest point(Cajon Pass to Yucaipa, CA) to the Pacific & North American Plate Boundary.

    Here's a another previously observed indication for the current state of the ongoing inferred crustal stress build-up in Southern California.

    Here's a related recently detected Strong Infrasonic Resonant Harmonic Spectrogram Captured on 07-APR-2005 00:00 - 03:00 UTC.
    Acoustic Emission: Spectrogram

    Also, I must remind you the inferred Pacific & North American Plate Boundary's Unclamping Level has not recovered to its (previously observed) former level measured prior to July 2004. As long as it remains like this, I'm going to stay with the current alert level for Southern California, and even more specifically the San Jacinto Fault Zone, which is being affected by the (inferred) greater lithospheric stress now in control of it.

The ULF mean average was slightly decreased (negative). All daily charts were updated to reflect the latest analysis.

    There were several observed periods with piezomagnetic activity associated with the Mojave Desert Block to the Salton Sea (Sink).

    It's inferred that crustal stress is now increasing rapidly from the Salton Sea region and further north into the Mojave Desert Block the recent piezomagnetic activity appears to be focused on the Helendale fault with an emphasis on the Big Bear Lake to Victorville region. However, it's best to keep the latest advisory to an area from Northern Baja to Yucca Valley, Lucerne Valley and Victor Valley to Barstow and Ridgecrest, CA (Mojave Desert Block/ECSZ).

    MT ULF UPDATE: April 15, 2005

    Note: The San Jacinto Fault Alert along with Inland Empire advisory continues to stay in effect. There was no infrasonic harmonic activity below 2 Hz on Friday. The ULF and MT activity level was moderate during the past 24 hours. The inferred mean average unclamping level was unchanged during the past 24 hours. The ULF mean average was decreased (negative). and reached a new lowest point for the year. The MT peak reading was measured at 9.2 units of regional lithospheric stress.

    M3.4 2005/04/16 10:13:15 35.891 -120.434 8.5 1 km ( 1 mi) S of Parkfield, CA
    M3.1 2005/04/16 09:04:35 34.855 -119.221 8.5 6 km ( 4 mi) W of Pine Mountain Club, CA

    Strong Piezomagnetic Activity was observed during the past 24 hours. I activated an alert for the Mojave Desert Block as a result of the inferred increase in ULF activity associated with the nucleation of crustal stress out of the ECSZ and into the region from Ridgecrest to Victorville, CA. Stress that nucleates northwest out of the ECSZ splits into two separate directions, which follows the Owens Valley and the Garlock fault zone. Apparently the Garlock fault is transfering the increase in stress across the San Andreas fault west of Frazier Park and Gorman, CA. The Pine Mountain Fault is inferred to be an extension of the Garlock fault. The small earthquake epicentered north of Los Angeles was itself to the north of the Big Pine/Pine Mountain fault and appears to be epicentered on the San Andreas fault's Mojave Segment. We rarely see any kind of seismic activity which is directly epicentered on the San Andreas fault. That movement was enough to also affect the Parkfield region to the north. The signs of increased piezomagnetic activity were two micro quakes, one of which was epicentered north of Big Bear Lake, and the other was epicentered NE of Apple Valley, CA. As a result, the Helendale fault was immediately placed under an advisory along with the blanket alert for the ECSZ Mojave Desert Block.

    The implications of the latest increase in seismic activity are that the Western Transverse Range and the San Andreas Fault are mechanically coupled and prone to having large and great earthquakes as witnessed in 1857 when the Carrizo and Mojave segments both ruptured (Fort Tejon). Last September's Parkfield M6.0 earthquake may have been a prelude to the next great earthquake. The prior Mw6.5 San Simeon earthquake appears to have been triggered by the nucleation of crustal stress out of the ECSZ via the Western Garlock fault zone and across the San Andreas fault onto the Pacific side of the plate boundary, where it increased the stress along the Big Pine/Pine Mountain fault that follows NW into the region between Paso Robles and San Simeon, CA. It's inferred that the current piezomagnetic activity is related to the migration of fluids along the Plate Boundary and adjacent secondary faults in Southern California.

    Note: The San Jacinto Fault Alert along with Inland Empire advisory continues to stay in effect. There was infrasonic harmonic activity below 2 Hz on Saturday. The Peak (Crustal) Infrasonic Harmonic Resonant Frequency was measured at 1.69 Hz (-74.77 dBv). The ULF and MT activity level was low to moderate during the past 24 hours. The inferred mean average unclamping level was unchanged during the past 24 hours. The ULF mean average was decreased (negative). and reached another new lowest point for the year.

    As a result of the increase in inferred crustal stress, as outlined in my previous report "via the Garlock fault", I'm going to keep the short term Mojave Desert Block Blanket Alert in force until I see several consecutive days without anomalous piezomagnetic activity. However, today began quite active and peaked just prior to the M5.1 earthquake epicentered near the White Wolf and Garlock fault's intersection with the Pacific & North American Plate Boundary, and the San Andreas Fault's Mojave Segment, which last ruptured in 1857.

    The M3.1 epicentered on the San Andreas fault west of Frazier Park is a precursor to incrased unlocking of the Big Bend first observed in February 2004 during the first incident of strong unclamping and decompression, which was detected by my lab here in the High Desert near the Cajon Pass.

    The first detected episode was February 12, 2004., and the next episode was on February 14, 2004 several hours before a M4.3 earthquake, which was epicentered near Frazier Park, Mettler, Gorman, and Wheeler Ridge, CA. Here's an example of the unclamping which was detected just prior to the M4.3 earthquake on February 14, 2004 and an origin time of 12:43:11 UTC. There are several more incidents of unclamping which lasted until February 25, 2004, which was hours after a M3.6 earthquake epicentered near Hemet, CA on the San Jacinto fault. There is definitely a link between the San Andreas fault's Mojave segment and the San Jacinto fault, being inferred from the spectrographic evidence.

    The very next incident of unclamping was on July 12, 2004,   two days after a M3.7 earthquake epicentered 35 miles NW of Ridgecrest, CA. However, it did not come on as abruptly, and became nearly constant within several months of its beginning. The unclamping increased its level in increments from July 2004 through October 2004, and really went extremely high just a few days prior to December 26, 2004. Shortly after there was a M4.3 earthquake epicentered near Fontana, CA. So, I knew that it was an increase in fluids migrating west along the plate boundary at the Cajon Pass that was causing it. That's where my current research stopped until the most recent piezomagnetic bursts associated with the Helendale fault as precursor to the seismic events of April 16, 2005 near the western end of the locked   "big bend" along the San Andreas fault.

    MT ULF UPDATE: April 17, 2005

    Note: The San Jacinto Fault Alert along with Inland Empire advisory continues to stay in effect. There was no infrasonic harmonic activity below 2 Hz on Sunday. The ULF and MT activity level was low to moderate during the past 24 hours. The inferred mean average unclamping level was unchanged during the past 24 hours. The ULF mean average was decreased (negative). and reached another new lowest point for the year. The MT peak reading was measured at 8.5 units of regional lithospheric stress. All daily charts were updated to reflect the latest analysis.

    The latest ULF activity was associated with a micro quake epicentered near Rialto, CA. Piezomagnetic activity is low to moderate at times. I believe that the nucleation of deep crustal stress out of the ECSZ and northwest across the Mojave Desert Block is still a significant seismic hazard to areas near Ridgecrest, CA to the Plate Boundary at Wheeler Ridge where the recent M5.1 was triggered less than 12 hours after a small M3.1 earthquake epicentered on the San Andreas Fault. The nucleation of stress across the plate boundary via the Garlock fault zone is driving this kind of anomalous activity, and creating the piezomagnetic bursts inferred to be related to pore pressure changes and fluid migration along the San Andreas fault at depth. I've completed two charts that attempt to portray the environment that led to the triggered M5.1 which was felt strongly in the region of South-Central California. THe first chart is the analysis of historic vs. latest Seismic activity. This chart indicates a thrust fault may have ruptured as a result of M3.1 to its south. The second chart shows the depth of all events vs. distance to the San Andreas fault. From what I could determine using the preliminary catalog, its still several kms between both aftershock zones. There appears to be a reverse thrust fault along Wheeler Ridge at San Emigdio Canyon where all of the aftershocks for the M5.1 are being concentrated. So far, there aren't any aftershocks outside of this zone between the two separate seismic events, indicating that the region between the M3.1 and M5.1 could be the location of the next large aftershock. THe San Andreas fault is a transform fault with a dip that is near vertical. The reverse thruust fault at the base of the Western Transverse Range dips to the south at an angle. So, the aftershocks get shallower to the north. What is interesting is the discontinuity where you see the abrupt depth changes. That is probably where the San Andreas fault takes over for the Reverse Thrust fault. So, I would be aware of any increase in seismic activity in the aseismic pocket between both features.

    Piezomagnetic activity was quite active during the past 24 hours. ULF and MT activity was detected from near Olancha, Coso Junction, and Baja California, Mexico. Therefore seismic activity picked up in Baja and the offshore region near San Diego, CA along secondary faults west of the plate boundary. So, all alerts are still in effect, including those for the Southern Sierras between Lake Isabella and Walker Pass, which is in line with the direction of crustal stress flow.

    Piezomagnetic activity was quite active during the past 24 hours. Today's small earthquake epicentered near Pine Mountain Club, CA appears like its M3.1 predecessor to be another primary earthquake epicentered along the San Andreas fault in South-Central California. ULF and MT activity was detected from near Pine Mountain Club, and Baja California, Mexico. So, all alerts are still in effect, including those for the plate boundary in Southern California.

The Peak (Crustal) Infrasonic Harmonic Resonant Frequency was measured at 1.69 Hz (-75.14 dBv). The ULF and MT activity level was low during the past 24 hours. The inferred mean average unclamping level was decreased during the past 24 hours. The ULF mean average was decreased (negative). The MT peak reading was measured at 8.7 units of regional lithospheric stress. All daily charts were updated to reflect the latest analysis.

    Piezomagnetic activity was quiet during the past 24 hours. A small earthquake epicentered near Offshore Santa Barbara, CA was an aftershock to the M4.0 earthquake at the same epicentric location. Lack of Piezomagnetic activity appears to be related to a decrease in overall seismic activity in the region. However, I'd give it at least another 72 hours before dropping any of the short term alerts now in effect. Soon there will be another filtered DAQ channel which is geared towards detecting the upper level piezomagnetic activity between 0.05 and 0.1 Hz. Remember, all alerts are still in effect, including the intermediate term alert for the plate boundary in Southern California. Also, the Full Moon Lunar-Tidal Advisory soon goes into effect. Tides will soon range from the 5.9 to 6.0 foot differential level during the height of the advisory. The areas with observed ULF activity were near Apple Valley and Quail Valley, CA.

    Epicentered on the San Jacinto fault.

    The latest reported observations in MT activity are a several month long upward trend. This morning, the MT (North-South Facing Array) had a measured temporary (several point) abrupt drop and recovery between 07:30 and 8:45 UTC (4/23). It's inferred that the change detected specifically on the north-South facing MT array was from the the Cajon Pass to Borrego Springs, CA direction and specifically for the San Jacinto fault zone, where tonight, there was a small M3.4 earthquake epicentered near San Bernardino, CA. The changes occuring in the local crustal regime are most likely also related to the recent regional changes detected along the Pacific & North American Plate Boudnary in both South-Central and Southern California. So, all previously issued alerts and warnings are still in effect at this time for the Cajon Pass and the Inland Empire.

    Piezomagnetic activity was low to background level during the past 24 hours. Remember, all alerts are still in effect, including the intermediate term alert for the plate boundary in Southern California. Also, the Full Moon Lunar-Tidal Advisory is now in effect for the next 72 hours. Tides will range from the 5.9 to 6.0 foot differential level during the height of this advisory. The areas with observed ULF activity were near Mt. San Gorgonio and Borrego Springs, CA.

Offshore seismic activity near Palos Verdes Point, CA is apparently being driven in part from the spring tides induced by a full Moon. Other regions with increased ULF activity were near Morongo Valley, Eureka Valley and Round Valley, CA.

    Today, there was a significantly strong ULF burst detected during a micro quake epicentered at Lake Tahoe(Vista), CA. Other regions with detected ULF activity were near Simi Valley and San Jacinto, CA. Also, there was a possible geomagnetic pulse type of a disturbance (21:40:42 UTC) associated with a micro quake epicentered in Central Alaska.

    Today's micro seismic swarm (Mt. San Gorgonio) was epicentered near the Mill Creek Branch   of the Southern San Andreas Fault Zone. Here's the latest published graphic, which indicates that crustal stress now building along the   plate boundary north of Los Angeles, is very high.

    Scientific Earthquake Prediction is by no means an exact science, and much more work still needs completion before it's out of the experimental stages of development. You can compare this with looking at the Moon through a telescope, and arriving in a spaceship at Trinity Base. We are still looking at it through a focused lens and just beginning to take the step into outer space via satellite detection. My goal is to fill in the gaps down here at earth level. the Mojave segment along the San Andreas fault, the Garlock fault, and the Mojave Desert Block are my favorite subject. From the Gulf of California to Parkfield in Central California is my general zone of exploratory research. Anything outside of this is done for extra credit.

    Regarding Donations for GeoSeismic Labs

    Donations made by direct contribution are vitally important to keep the lab in operation through the year. An item that needs emphasis is the annual operating cost related to being a public corporation within the state of California; a fee which is Eight Hundred Dollars, and paid for the privilege of being a public entity. Last fiscal year (4/1/04 - 03/31/05), I directly paid to the State Secretary approximately 2 Thousand Dollars in Franchise Tax Fees to keep the lab solvent and fully chartered with the State of California. Your donations will basically cover the cost of keeping the web site operating 24/7. The depth of my research is increasing exponentially as events occur and I focus my research upon them. My 365 days of ground-breaking reports, will keep you informed and prepared for the future.


    IMPORTANT:
    For those who elect to send a personal check or postal money order
    Please send an email request to the address listed on my website for instructions.

    Also, All credit card funded donations using the automatic Paypal donation button will be rejected unless you request easy to follow alternate instructions via email and follow them completely.
    You may also use the Amazon.com donation button placed on various pages of the website. Also, any further questions you may have, should be sent to the email address that is listed within. Thank you,
