Tsunamis and Earthquakes: What Physics is Interesting?

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.

    M4.2 2005/08/06 05:40:32 36.150 -118.078 0.8 14 km ( 9 mi) SSW of Olancha, CA

    A New Moon Advisory is now in effect.

    All daily charts were updated to reflect the latest analysis.

    General Discussion:
    Lithospheric Stress Continues to increase along the Pacific & North American Plate Boundary from the Gulf of California to Central California. A M4.2 earthquake was epicentered near Olancha, in Central California and appears to be related to the an increase in deep crustal stress in the Mojave Desert Block/ECSZ. There were long periods with increased upper level (5 Hz) spectral harmonic content at the Plate Boundary from Northern Baja California, Mexico to the Mojave Desert Block/ECSZ and as far north as Kernville, and Olancha, CA. A short term warning was issued during a period with extremely active 5 Hz harmonic content and a detected quintuple Scalar Energy Pulsation was observed late in the period and inferred to be associated with the Mojave Desert Block/ECSZ by virtue of the concurrent strong upper level harmonic at 5Hz. That activity deceased immediately after a pair of micro quakes epicentered near Kernville, CA. The M4.2 which occurred very early in the reporting period was apparently associated with a high frequency ULF signal burst which was recently detected and inferred to be related to a micro quake epicentered 6 miles NNW of the Garlock Fault Zone near Tehachapi, CA. The reported high crustal stress nucleating out of the Mojave Desert Block/ECSZ and along the Northern edge of the Mojave Desert Block (Garlock fault Zone) seems to have affected an area directly to its north in the Southern Sierras with two light earthquakes in the range of M4.2 to M3.0 along with a swarm of smaller aftershocks. All of this activity is inferred to be related to the birth of a new plate boundary within the Mojave Desert Block/ECSZ headed north via the West Calico/Blackwater fault, across the Garlock Fault Zone near Ridgecrest, CA and into the Southern Owens Valley via the Little Lake fault to Olancha, CA. Adjacent faults such as the Kern Canyon and Owens Valley Fault can also be disturbed by a change in deep crustal energy nucleating north across the Garlock Fault Zone and into the Southern Sierras between Lone Pine and Lake Isabella, CA. Another area with increased ULF activity was located in the Inland Empire near Devore and Rancho Cucamonga, CA and close to the Eastern Sierra Madre/Cucamonga fault, where it intersects with the Northern San Jacinto Fault.

    ECSZ Mojave Desert Block: Infrasonic Spectrogram

    Statement Summary:
    It's inferred that recently detected strong infrasonic resonant harmonics are related to a general rise in deep crustal resonant energy coming from along the Pacific & North American Plate Boundary in Baja, and Southern California. The current infrasonic harmonics are associated with high a lithospheric stress level along the San Andreas fault zone( Mojave Desert Block/ECSZ) from Southern to South-Central California, which affects the Walker Lane/ Owens Valley region as it nucleates into Northern California. It then nucleates westward at the southern edge of the Cascades Range near Burney, CA (5.10.2005/M4.4) and into the offshore Mendocino-Triple-Junction Subduction zone to the west of Crescent City and Petrolia, CA(6.14.2005/M7.2, 6.16.2005/M6.7 respectively). The same crustal stress also nucleates westward along the Garlock fault zone and the border between the Southern Sierras batholith / Mojave Desert Block near Tehachapi/Arvin/Keene, CA(9.29.2004/M5.0) where it crosses the Plate boundary at the Grapevine, near Mettler (4.16.2005/M5.2), and Frazier Park, CA (4.15.2005/M3.1) at the western end of the big bend along the San Andreas fault and Pine Mountain-Big Pine-Hosgri fault system, which ultimately affects the crustal stress level at the Central California Coast near San Simeon/Cayucos and Paso Robles, CA(12.22.2003/Mw6.5).It may also be the source of the stress trigger for the long predicted Parkfield Experiment M6.0 earthquake on September 28, 2004. It also affects the lithospheric stress level along major faults in the Inland Empire of Southern California, where there was a recent fifty mile distant pairing of moderate earthquakes near both the Anza Seismic Gap(6.12.2005/M5.2) , and at Yucaipa, CA(6.16.2005/M4.9) which are inferred to be related to stress nucleation out of the Salton Sink/Coachella Valley region being driven alternately by the ECSZ and the Gulf of California to the south, along the Southern San Andreas Fault, which hasn't had a strong earthquake within the past 350 years.

    The newly analyzed infrasonics are indicating that the source of this stress (1.04 Hz) is extremely close to Southern California latitudes at the Pacific and North American Plate Boundary (ECSZ), where 34.0 degrees North is inferred to equal 1.0 Hz. We may now potentially be very close in timing to the next strong seismic event epicentered in the Southern California region. We should also proceed to a heightened level of alert whenever solar induced-geomagnetic earth activity appears (6.13.2005/Chile M7.8). The long duration periods with sub-ionospheric ULF wave absorption are an excellent indicator to when the activity begins to surface. However, I must emphasize that not everything is yet known about how this works, and I must warn you to be prepared for an event which is higher in magnitude. Danger also arises if the deep resonant harmonic energy is vectored through a volcanic center, of which the Walker Lane Owens valley region has many in the direction of the energy coming out of the ECSZ and towards the Coso Volcanic Center, Long Valley Caldera, and the Inyo/Mono Basin Craters. Additionally, any major seismic or volcanic activity epicentered from Central America to Central Mexico, appears to increase the lithospheric stress along the Pacific & North American Plate Boundary in Baja and Southern California.


    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, the San Jacinto fault, and the Mojave Desert Block are my favorite subjects. 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,
