I have been to Yellowstone and saw many geysers, but I never heard of sand geysers. This is quite an interesting phenomenon to say the least.
this already locked up my computer once, Geronimo, and I could certainly do without all the jihadi propaganda at the site you linked to last time.
I think it is Obama trying to get his ball out of a sand trap.
I had no problem viewing it, and my pc’s not locked up.
I saw this the other day, and I thought then that is was caused by the Saudis pumping air or gas into a chamber below to force oil up, but they missed and instead of crude, they forced sand out like a geyser.
Worked on the installation of two very large 10 cylinder Ingersoll Rand air compressors...
These compressors pumped massive amounts of air into the ground to help force the petro up thru the pipes that were inserted into the ground to capture the petro...
Would seem plausable that the air could find a weak spot in the ground surface and shoot up like the sand in the video...Just a thought...
Comes from eating too much hummus.
Sounds as good as any other that has been offered.
They have found some sand geysers when excavating in the region of old earthquakes, back east, I think. Can’t remember the name of the book I read which described it in passing.
Was Kevin bacon seen in the area?
Guess they never read about the great New Madrid quakes of 1811-12.
“THE SUBSURFACE ANATOMY OF THE BOOTHEEL’S SAND BLOWS:
REMNANTS OF THE NEW MADRID EARTHQUAKES
Earthquakes have repeatedly shattered the alluvial landforms about the Missouri Bootheelmost
recently the 1811-1812 New Madrid earthquakes. During the four greatest of earthquakes, long
fissures opened across the surface and volcanic-like sand blows erupted, venting subterranean
sands onto the surface.”
You are thinking of the sand blows during the New Madrid Earthquakes of 1811-12.
Djinn! Djinn are attacking! Summon the local mullah, pronto! Spray it with zam-zam water!
Yes, some sand blows during the New Madrid Earthquakes, but I think they found them in other places not as commonly affected by earthquakes.
Sand Geysers were mentioned frequently in the reports about the New Madrid Earthquake.
