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: May 5, 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 Thursday. 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 increased(positive). The MT peak reading was measured at 8.7 units of regional lithospheric stress. All daily charts were updated to reflect the latest analysis.

    M3.2 2005/05/06 02:07:13 UT 35.026N 119.183W d:13.5 km ( 12 mi) WSW of Mettler, CA
    M4.1 2005/05/06 02:29:09 UT 35.024N 119.184W d:11.2 km ( 12 mi) N of Pine Mountain Club, CA
    M3.1 2005/05/06 04:44:21 UT 32.336N 115.174W d:6.9 km ( 5 mi) NW of Guadalupe Victoria, Mexico

    The most recently detected high frequency ULF signal bursts appear to be associated with micro quakes epicentered from Malibu to Santa Barbara, CA. The HFB's were also prior to a light aftershock (M4.1) to the April 16, 2005 M5.2 Mettler earthquake. There was an update to a previously released chart   used for the location of all earthquakes epicentered in the region of Pine Mountain Club, CA. It would be best to stay on advisory as we approach a maximum Lunar-Tidal phase angle during the next New Moon on May 8, 2005.

    MT ULF UPDATE: May 6, 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 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 increased(positive). The MT peak reading was measured at 8.8 units of regional lithospheric stress. All daily charts were updated to reflect the latest analysis.

    The most recently detected ULF activity appeared to be associated with a micro quake epicentered near Lucerne Valley, CA. There was a sudden impulse which was detected at 13:06 UTC. A long period of low frequency ULF disturbance was observed for several hours after the arrival of the CME. Piezomagnetic activity was increased during the past 24 hours.

    MT ULF UPDATE: May 7, 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 1.60 Hz (-75.28 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 increased(positive). The MT peak reading was measured at 8.9 units of regional lithospheric stress. All daily charts were updated to reflect the latest analysis.

    The most recently detected ULF activity appears to be associated with a micro quake epicentered near the "Geysers" in Northern California. Also, ULF activity was observed during a micro quake epicentered near Loma Linda and Randsburg, CA. Piezomagnetic activity was increased during the past 24 hours. As I go to press with this edition an earthquake with a preliminary magnitude 4.1 was epicentered in Northern California near Green Valley, CA. It's inferred that a sudden increase in detected ULF activity from the Geysers may be related to it. An earlier infrasonic harmonic at 1.6 Hz is inferred to also be for Northern California. A small M3.4 earthquake appears to have been epicentered not far from the M4.1 and close to San Francisco Bay, on the Hayward fault. Possibly remote triggered as a result of a combined New Moon (spring tide) induced Lunar-Tidal Maximum Phase Angle, and a step over in crustal stress coming from the Green Valley Fault. The area is in close proximity to the San Andreas and Calaveras faults, and under the influence of high crustal stress that needs to be closely monitored.


     07-MAY-2005: 24 Hour Geomagnetic and Magneto-Telluric Graph


    MT ULF UPDATE: May 8, 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 Sunday. The Peak (Crustal) Infrasonic Harmonic Resonant Frequency was measured at 0.93 Hz (-75.46 dBv). 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 increased(positive). The MT peak reading was measured at 9.1 units of regional lithospheric stress. All daily charts were updated to reflect the latest analysis.

    M4.1 2005/05/08 08:43:55 38.378 -122.166 9.6 13 km ( 8 mi) N of Green Valley, CA
    M3.4 2005/05/08 10:35:55 37.840 -122.222 6.1 2 km ( 1 mi) NNE of Piedmont, CA
    M3.0 2005/05/08 12:08:08 36.883 -121.615 6.0 2 km ( 2 mi) ESE of Aromas, CA

    The latest detected period of Geomagnetic oscillation came immediately after a significant geomagnetic shift which appears to be associated with a micro quake epicentered near Pine Mountain Club, CA. The infrasonic harmonic at 0.98 Hz is inferred to mean that seismic activity is moving closer to border region and the Coachella Valley where a micro quake epicentered near Bombay Beach also had a period of geomagnetic oscillation associated with it. The series of quakes started in Northern California after I observed a period with ULF activity at the Geysers. It appears that the new moon induced lunar-tides triggered at least three separate earthquakes(en echelon). Also, seismic activity increased near San Clemente Isl., and at Tres Pinos, CA, which is close to the inferred location of a strong piezomagnetic signal burst   reported on April 5, 2005.

    Advisory is Now in Effect!


    MT ULF UPDATE: May 9, 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 Monday. 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 increased(positive). The MT peak reading was measured at 8.6 units of regional lithospheric stress. All daily charts were updated to reflect the latest analysis.

    M4.4 2005/05/09 22:37:39 38.786 -122.754 1.2 5 km ( 3 mi) ESE of The Geysers, CA
    M3.0 2005/05/10 04:01:32 32.443 -115.310 6.0 25 km ( 16 mi) NW of Guadalupe Victoria, Mexico
    M3.1 2005/05/10 04:19:21 32.441 -115.314 6.0 25 km ( 16 mi) NW of Guadalupe Victoria, Mexico

    The most recently observed ULF activity was from Near Mexicali in Northern Baja Mexico where a swarm was observed later in the day. Obviously, there is a major crustal stress nucleation from both the north and south that is greatly affecting the number of earthquakes epicentered in Southern California along the plate boundary. So, stay on alert.



    MT ULF UPDATE: May 10, 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 Tuesday. 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 significantly increased(positive). The MT peak reading was measured at 10.2 units of regional lithospheric stress. All daily charts were updated to reflect the latest analysis.

    M3.2 2005/05/10 05:18:17 32.440 -115.312 6.0 25 km ( 16 mi) NW of Guadalupe Victoria, Mexico
    M4.4 2005/05/10 20:21:10 40.946 -121.757 18.0 11 km ( 7 mi) NW of Burney, CA

    Today's activity was variable and contained some of the most significant observed anomalies of the past several months, when a strong piezomagnetic burst was observed immediately after a M4.4 earthquake epicentered in Northern California's Southern Cascades Range in close proximity to three major volcanic centers, including Mt. Shasta, Lassen Peak (last erupted between 1914 and 1917) and Medicine Lake, CA. There were two other strong Piezomagnetic Signal Bursts, which appear to be associated with the San Andreas Fault Zone in both Central and Southern California. I now believe it indicates the region from San Jose to Parkfield, CA is undergoing high crustal stress along the Pacific and North American Plate Boundary. So, continue to stay on alert.

    MT ULF UPDATE: May 13, 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 low to moderate during the past 24 hours. The inferred mean average unclamping level was higher during the past 24 hours and was last exceeded in early January 2005. The ULF mean average was decreased(negative). The MT peak reading was measured at 9.8 units of regional lithospheric stress. The MT mean average reading was 8.5 units of regional lithospheric stress.

    M3.5 2005/05/13 17:20:30 32.339 -115.187 1.8 9 km ( 6 mi) NW of Guadalupe Victoria, Mexico

    All daily charts were updated to reflect the latest analysis.

    There was a significant increase in piezomagnetic activity which appears to be associated with the earthquakes epicentered in Northern Baja CA, Mexico. Also, ULF activity including a high frequency ULF burst were observed coming from near Borrego Springs, CA. The MT mean average chart is now headed above 8.5 units. There is now a geo-effective CME coming towards Earth, which was generated by today's strong M8 Xray Solar Flare. The divergent plate boundary in the California/Mexico border region may become greatly affected by the arrival of the CME and any subsequential storming incidents. So, continue to stay on alert.

    The effects the sudden impulse shockwave from the geo-efective CME (02:42 UTC) are beginning to be detected, just as the 24 hour reporting period has ended. The seismicity in Southern California and Baja Mexico may now become greatly affected by any subsequential sub-storming incidents.
    The initial official report that I received was:

    Space Weather Message Code: SUMSUD
    Serial Number: 65
    Issue Time: 2005 May 15 0253 UTC
    
    
    SUMMARY: Geomagnetic Sudden Impulse
    Observed: 2005 May 15 0238 UTC
    Deviation: 67 nT
    Station: Boulder
    

    However, the timing for first detection is approximately ten minutes earlier for my station. Apparently, it must have hit the Pacific Plate first, and would be closer to the impact zone. Earlier this morning, I observed the dip compass needle moving very slightly up and down. No doubt, a result of the intense storming now occurring around the planet. Infrasonics appear to be on the rise of importance with the detection of some strong infrasonic spectral components on the tracking filter. So, continue to stay on alert, as the effects of the solar shockwave's sudden impulse can greatly affect the level of seismic activity within a short period of time, upon its arrival.

    The geo-storm's after-effects have increased seismic activity along the plate boundary. A couple of small earthquakes were epicentered near Parkfield, CA. The infrasonic resonant harmonic activity accelerated during the past 24 hours. A long period with strong harmonic energy was detected. It is inferred that the strong infrasonics are related to a rise in deep crustal stress along the Pacific & North American Plate Boundary in Southern California. So, continue to stay on alert.

    I detected an MT disturbance at the same time as that for the beginning of the Isla Vista / Santa Barbara offshore seismic swarm. The infrasonic resonant harmonic activity continues to be high. A period with strong harmonic energy was detected. It is inferred that the strong infrasonics are related to a rise in deep crustal stress along the Pacific & North American Plate Boundary in Southern California. So, continue to stay on alert.

    All daily charts were updated to reflect the latest analysis.

    General Discussion:
    There was a period of strong infrasonic resonant harmonic activity, which is inferred to be associated with the San Jacinto fault in the Inland Empire. Today's M4.1 Ocotillo Wells earthquake was preceded by a long period with an absence of background ULF activity. It's now believed that the suppression incident is an indication, or precursor for a strong earthquake epicentered within the Inland Empire (San Bernardino County). There were two micro quakes which fell during the period of maximum suppression. One was epicentered near Moreno Valley, the other was epicentered near Loma Linda, CA. The activity is consistent with recent reports of a high number of "lost and found" pet ads published in a Riverside, CA newspaper. So, everything appears to still be on target for the current San Jacinto fault zone alert.

    Statement Summary:
    It is inferred that the strong infrasonics are related to a rise in deep crustal stress along the Pacific & North American Plate Boundary in Southern California. The current infrasonics are inferred to be associated with high crustal stress along the San Andreas fault zone from Southern California to Central California. So, continue to stay on alert.

    All daily charts were updated to reflect the latest analysis.

    General Discussion:
    Infrasonic resonant harmonic activity, according to its fundamental frequency, shifted to north of the Mojave Desert block. where several periods with moderate level appeared to be associated with the Owens Valley region from near Bishop, CA to as far south as the Coso Volcanic Center near China Lake, CA. There was another ULF suppression incident during the early evening hours, which lasted until about midnight local time. I believe it's an indication that the Mojave Desert Block is building high levels of crustal stress from Ludlow to Ridgecrest, CA where it is inferred that a new plate boundary is in its early formation stage along the West Calico-Blackwater-Little Lake fault system lineament which is attempting to circumvent the "Big Bend" along the San Andreas fault. There were several micro quakes which fell during the period of maximum ULF suppression: A swarm was observed north of Bishop, CA. a micro quake was epicentered near Louisiana Butte (Coso Volcanic Center), and there were two micro quakes epicentered near San Simeon, CA. In Southern California, there ware two micro quakes which were epicentered near Borrego Springs and Anza, CA.

    Statement Summary:
    It is inferred that the strong infrasonics are related to a rise in deep crustal stress along the Pacific & North American Plate Boundary in Southern California. The current infrasonics are inferred to be associated with high crustal stress along the San Andreas fault zone from Southern California to Central California and may also now be affecting the Owens Valley from Bishop to Coso Junction, CA as it nucleates north of the Mojave Desert Block and west along the Garlock fault zone towards the South-Central Coastal region near San Simeon, CA via the Pine Mountain-Big Pine faults. So, continue to stay on alert.

    General Discussion:
    Infrasonic resonant harmonic activity spanned from the Mojave Desrt Block at the San Andreas fault in Southern California to as far south as Northern Baja California, Mexico. There was one more ULF suppression incident during the mid-afternoon, which began at 22:34 UTC, which was in effect with a duration total of one hour and forty minutes. The Full moon arrived at 20:20 UTC, which was 20 minutes after a M4.1 earthquake epicentered near San Simeon, CA. Also, the typical scattering of infrasonic waves preceded the earthquake along with strong infrasonic harmonic activity at close to the frequency inferred for the San Andreas fault and the Southern edge of the Mojave Desert Block. There were at least two high frequency ULF signal bursts detected during the past 24 hours. One of them began seven minutes after the M4.1 at San Simeon, CA. A second burst was detected approximately eight minutes prior to M2.8 which was epicentered in Northern Baja Mexico near the divergent Plate Boundary.

    Statement Summary:
    It is inferred that the strong infrasonics are related to a rise in deep crustal stress along the Pacific & North American Plate Boundary in Southern California. The current infrasonics are inferred to be associated with high crustal stress along the San Andreas fault zone from Southern California to Central California and may also now be affecting the Owens Valley from Bishop to Coso Junction, CA as it nucleates north of the Mojave Desert Block and west along the Garlock fault zone towards the South-Central Coastal region near San Simeon, CA via the Pine Mountain-Big Pine faults. Also, appears to be affecting faults north of Los Angeles, CA. Current strong infrasonic activity appears to be moving further south towards the border region with Mexico. The Full Moon arrived on Monday with a maximum lunar-tidal phase angle to occur early Tuesday morning, before sunrise. So, continue to stay on alert.

    Epilog:
    As stated in the May 23, 2005 MT ULF Report, "Current strong infrasonic activity appears to be moving further south towards the border region with Mexico."   Editors Note: Where today's M3.5 earthquake was epicentered in Baja California, Mexico.

    General Discussion:
    Infrasonic resonant harmonic activity became very strong during the past 24 hours. The activity in the range of frequency from 0.84 to 1.27 Hz was particularly active and is inferred to span from Central California to the Gulf of California in Northern Baja California, Mexico. There were two more ULF suppression incidents, one prior to midnight local time and the other during late afternoon, which began at 23:10 UTC and was in effect for a duration total of one hour and twenty-eight minutes. There was a strong infrasonic resonant harmonic (15:00 - 17:00 UTC) which preceded a M3.5 earthquake epicentered near San Simeon, CA. A typical scattering of infrasonic waves followed the earthquake along with a dominant upper level infrasonic harmonic at 5Hz, which was detected on the active tracking filter between 18:30 and 21:00 UTC. The upper level harmonic is inferred to be associated with a continuous buildup of high lithospheric stress within the "Anza Seismic Gap" at Toro Peak that appears to be sensitive to major crustal changes at depth in Southern California, especially those that are associated with the Pacific & North American plate boundary from the Salton Sea, Coachella and Imperial Valleys to the Cajon Pass region, and west to the Elsinore fault zone. Infrasonic activity lowered to near 0.83 Hz during the early evening hours (00:00 - 03:00 UTC) which is inferred to be associated with the border region between Mexicali and San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico.

    Statement Summary:
    It is inferred that the strong infrasonics are related to a rise in deep crustal stress along the Pacific & North American Plate Boundary in Southern California. The current infrasonics are inferred to be associated with high crustal stress along the San Andreas fault zone from Southern California to Central California and may also now be affecting the Owens Valley from Bishop to Coso Junction, CA as it nucleates north of the Mojave Desert Block and west along the Garlock fault zone towards the South-Central Coastal region near San Simeon, CA via the Pine Mountain-Big Pine faults. Also, appears to be affecting faults north of Los Angeles, CA. Current strong infrasonic activity appears to also be moving southeast towards the border region with Mexico, and the Gulf of California. It's also likely that the strong resonant harmonic activity could move north again, and significantly affect Southern California. So, continue to stay on alert.

The activity in the range of frequency from 0.84 to 1.27 Hz was particularly active and is inferred to span from Central California to the Gulf of California in Northern Baja California, Mexico. There were two more ULF suppression incidents, one prior to midnight local time and the other during mid afternoon, which began at 22:43 UTC and was in effect for a duration total of one hour and eight minutes. There was a strong infrasonic resonant harmonic (12:00 - 17:00 UTC) which appears to be related to a micro quake epicentered near Piru, CA.

    Statement Summary:
    It is inferred that the strong infrasonics are related to a rise in deep crustal stress along the Pacific & North American Plate Boundary in Southern California. The current infrasonics are inferred to be associated with high crustal stress along the San Andreas fault zone from Southern California to Central California and may also now be affecting the Owens Valley from Bishop to Coso Junction, CA as it nucleates north of the Mojave Desert Block and west along the Garlock fault zone towards the South-Central Coastal region near San Simeon, CA via the Pine Mountain-Big Pine faults. Also, appears to be affecting faults north of Los Angeles, CA with the latest activity near Piru, CA. Current strong infrasonic activity appears to also be moving southeast towards the border region with Mexico, and the Gulf of California. It's also likely that the strong resonant harmonic activity could move north again, and significantly affect Southern California. So, continue to stay on alert.

    General Discussion:
    Infrasonic resonant harmonic activity was strong during the past 24 hours. There was activity at 0.84 Hz and from 1.6 Hz to 1.9 Hz. California, Mexico. There were two more ULF suppression incidents, one prior to midnight local time and the other during mid afternoon, which began at 22:24 UTC and was in effect for a duration total of nearly two hours. It's apprently related to the San Jacinto fault from Ocotillo Wells to north of Borrego Springs, CA.

    Statement Summary:
    It is inferred that the strong infrasonics are related to a rise in deep crustal stress along the Pacific & North American Plate Boundary in Southern California. The current infrasonics are inferred to be associated with high crustal stress along the San Andreas fault zone from Southern California to Central California and may also now be affecting the Owens Valley from Bishop to Coso Junction, CA as it nucleates north of the Mojave Desert Block and west along the Garlock fault zone towards the South-Central Coastal region near San Simeon, CA via the Pine Mountain-Big Pine faults.

    All daily charts were updated to reflect the latest analysis.

    General Discussion:
    Infrasonic resonant harmonic activity was strong during the past 24 hours. There was activity at 1.33 Hz, and from 1.2 Hz to 1.5 Hz. There were two more ULF suppression incidents, one after midnight local time for ten minutes, and the other during mid-afternoon, which began at 21:56 UTC and was in effect for a total duration of approximately one hour and forty-three minutes. It appears to be spreading further north now and into the Mojave Desert Block and the Eastern Sierras with some indication that it may be affecting areas as far north as Central California. Tonight, another long duration ULF suppression incident was detected Saturday evening beginning at 5:46 UTC, which lasted for approximately one hour and twenty-one minutes and had a strong ULF burst at the very end of it. So, the incidents with ULF suppression are definitely on the rise.

    Statement Summary:
    It is inferred that the strong infrasonics are related to a rise in deep crustal stress along the Pacific & North American Plate Boundary in Southern California. The current infrasonics are inferred to be associated with high crustal stress along the San Andreas fault zone from Southern California to Central California and may also now be affecting the Owens Valley from Bishop to Coso Junction, CA as it nucleates north, and outside of the Mojave Desert Block, and west along the Garlock fault zone into the Central California Coastal region near San Simeon, CA (Pine Mountain-Big Pine faults). Also, appears to be affecting crustal stress levels as far north as The San Francisco Bay area. The San Jacinto fault zone and the Anza Seismic Gap was the focus of some of the most recently detected anomalies. We may now potentially be within 30 days of the next strong seismic event epicentered in Southern California. So, continue to stay on alert.

    All daily charts were updated to reflect the latest analysis.

    General Discussion:
    Infrasonic resonant harmonic activity was moderate during the past 24 hours. There was peak activity at 1.57 Hz, within a range from 1.45 Hz to 1.75 Hz. There was one ULF suppression incident, which began at 05:46 UTC and was in effect for a total duration of approximately one hour and twenty minutes. There was Infrasonic resonant harmonic activity during the morning period and prior to a M3.9 earthquake epicentered offshore of San Diego, CA. Two clouds appeared over the Cajon Pass region that I was able to capture photographs of before they dispersed and were taken between 15:45 and 16:00 UTC. It was noted that a series of three micro quakes were epicentered near Borrego Springs about 1.5 hours prior to the earthquake near San Diego, CA. The ULF suppression incident appears to be associated with crustal stress along the Western Garlock fault zone near Tehachapi, CA.

    Statement Summary:
    It is inferred that the strong infrasonics are related to a rise in deep crustal stress along the Pacific & North American Plate Boundary in Southern California. The current infrasonics are inferred to be associated with high crustal stress along the San Andreas fault zone from Southern California to Central California and may also now be affecting the Owens Valley from Bishop to Coso Junction, CA as it nucleates north, and outside of the Mojave Desert Block, and west along the Garlock fault zone into the Central California Coastal region near San Simeon, CA (Pine Mountain-Big Pine faults).

    MT ULF UPDATE: May 30, 2005

    Note: The San Jacinto Fault Alert along with Inland Empire advisory continues to stay in effect. There was very strong infrasonic harmonic resonant activity below 2 Hz on Monday. The Peak (Crustal) Infrasonic Harmonic Resonant Frequency was measured at 0.76 Hz (-66.99 dBv). The ULF and MT activity level was basically low during the past 24 hours. The inferred mean average unclamping level was unchanged. The ULF mean average was increased (positive). The MT peak reading was measured at 8.9 units of regional lithospheric stress. The MT mean average was measured at 8.1 units.

    All daily charts were updated to reflect the latest analysis.

    General Discussion:
    Infrasonic resonant harmonic activity was extremely active during the past 24 hours. There was peak activity at 0.76 Hz, within a range from 0.6 Hz to 1.16 Hz. There were no detected ULF suppression incidents. The strong infrasonic resonant harmonic frequency appears to be associated with the Gulf of California and further north into Southern California. Today, there was the strongest eruption of the past 15 years at the Colima Volcano within the Mexican Central Volcanic Belt. That level of volcanic activity could also be reflected as strong infrasonic activity along the divergent plate boundary as reported about earlier in this report. So, it is not too suprising that the Sea of Cortez is under high crustal stress.

    Statement Summary:
    It is inferred that the strong infrasonics are related to a rise in deep crustal stress along the Pacific & North American Plate Boundary in Southern California. The current infrasonics are inferred to be associated with high crustal stress along the San Andreas fault zone from Southern California to Central California and may also now be affecting the Owens Valley from Bishop to Coso Junction, CA as it nucleates north, and outside of the Mojave Desert Block, and west along the Garlock fault zone into the Central California Coastal region near San Simeon, CA (Pine Mountain-Big Pine faults).

    Note: The San Jacinto Fault Alert along with Inland Empire advisory continues to stay in effect. There was moderate infrasonic harmonic resonant activity below 2 Hz on Tuesday. The Peak (Crustal) Infrasonic Harmonic Resonant Frequency was measured at 0.18 Hz (-72.78 dBv). The ULF and MT activity level was extremely low during the past 24 hours. The inferred mean average unclamping level was unchanged. The ULF mean average was decreased (negative). The MT peak reading was measured at 9.0 units of regional lithospheric stress. The MT mean average was measured at 8.2 units.

    All daily charts were updated to reflect the latest analysis.

    General Discussion:
    Infrasonic resonant harmonic activity was extremely active during the past 24 hours. There was peak activity at 0.18 Hz, 0.94 Hz, and within a range from 1.6 Hz to 2.0 Hz. There were no detected ULF suppression incidents. The strong infrasonic resonant harmonic frequency appears to be associated with deep crustal stress in Mexico, the Gulf of California and further north into Southern California. There was a scattering of infrasonic activity between 18:00 and 21:00 UTC, which was prior to the M2.9 earthquake epicentered offshore near Malibu, CA. Micro quakes epicentered close to the plate boundary at Wrightwood, Fontana, and Devore, CA were also active around the same approximate time period. Late tonight the Yucca Valley region appears to be picking up in micro seismic activity which may be related to the high crustal stress along the Pacific & North American Plate Boundary.

    Statement Summary:
    It is inferred that the strong infrasonics are related to a rise in deep crustal stress along the Pacific & North American Plate Boundary in Southern California. The current infrasonics are inferred to be associated with high crustal stress along the San Andreas fault zone from Southern California to Central California and may also now be affecting the Owens Valley from Bishop to Coso Junction, CA as it nucleates north, and outside of the Mojave Desert Block, and west along the Garlock fault zone into the Central California Coastal region near San Simeon, CA (Pine Mountain-Big Pine faults).

    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,
