Norris Junction Helicorder Activity
http://www.seis.utah.edu/helicorder/ynr_webi_6d.htm ^

Posted on 12/02/2012 12:07:55 PM PST by Blogger

What is going on at Yellowstone? Looking at the helicorder for Norris Junction for the past couple of days they either have a severely malfunctiong seismograph machine or something big is affecting the area. Any thoughts from those who watch this area? Is this normal?

I've started you on the 26th to show what it looked like then. Activity starts kicking up on the 29th.

If this is normal activity, feel free to delete. It just looks really strange and wanted to get some Freeper feedback.

Looks like equipment malfunction to me.
It’s too steady and consistent to be real seismic activity.
Unless those underground Mayans are gettin’ ready to partay...

Warming up for 12/21/2012.

It's the BIG ONE baby.

Seriously, though. I was at the Steamboat Geyser on May 3, 2000 with my wife and three small children when the thing went up. It was the biggest eruption in almost a century and went on for several days. Unbelievably loud. And knowing what's right under the surface at Yellowstone somewhat scary as well...

My guess is that some scrappers stole the recording device and are heading across the country with it in the back of their old pickup.....

If you go here (also links through via a couple of clicks from your page) http://quake.utah.edu/req2webdir/recenteqs/Quakes/uu60006362.html You will find a 1.1 mag microquake occurred about 7-10 km southeast of the Norris Basin at 2:52 AM on 11/29. Could certainly be related to that.

That was an M 6.4 earthquake in Vanuatu (in the South Pacific) on the South Dakota display.

It’s also possible it’s wind. They’ve been having a strong storm the last couple of days.

As you say could be wind.
The Vanuatu plot is loud and clear, but no sign of the noise from Utah's recorder.
I've been over several systems in the last half hour ,the only one reporting this noise (that i’ve found) is Utah University.
One of the sites over here is very prone to noise from the Americas, for some reason, and there is no sign of this on there either.

Hey, I am planning on being at Chichen Itza at the solstice on 12/21/12 to watvh the end of the world from the front row.

I’ll be really POd if the Yellowston Caldera goes first.

What a coincidence. I'm watching Countdown to Apocalypse on History right now and it's talking about Nostradamus predictions about super volcanoes and are focusing on Yellowstone.

They said a major eruption from this "super volcano" would cover Texas with 5' of ash.

After watching the Cayce program this morning, I found this site while looking for maps of his post apocalypse America.

2.3 in Maine right near the larger one in October.

http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsus/Quakes/usc000e3se.php#details

Aftershock or a pre-quake?

Deeper than the first 4.0

http://www.ldeo.columbia.edu/LCSN/recenteqs/Maps/71-43.html

Given the history of the area....I would not say it’s a aftershock.

Yes, I was looking at that. The first few deep ones occured west of the fault prior to the 7+.

yeah...I would not attribute this main quake as a aftershock of the big one last year.

Looks like a seperate event.

The depth though is holding suggesting that this is a true subduction event that is ongoing.

Seems last year’s Virginia quake was the most felt ever...cool stuff!

Take a look at the southeast from Texas to Carolina...

All small quakes but it’s kinda odd...

Yes, kinda makes one wonder if these are somehow connected. Many are occurring at similar depths. Perhaps we have some particular strata involved? Like bending a piece of thin plywood, the first cracking occurs in the layer least able to take the tension.

yah...I have gotten away from the ancient fault concept and now more or less believe active stress loading caused by contintental drift.

This is my crude mental picture...for the North American Plate.

Imagine a fulcrum under the plate midsection....now at the western reaches of the plate the Pacific is subducting under it. So what happens when that western portion becomes less brittle and is pretty stout to withstand increasing pressure?

What happens to the eastside of that Fulcrum?

So you point is pretty close to what I am thinking...lol

What happens to the eastside of that Fulcrum?

It's going to react in some fashion to the increasing stress. Likely showing itself in certain strata formations initially until an area (line of weakness) least able to resist the forces involved is established, IMO. ;)

I'll tell you something that I keep thinking about. That is the possibility that plates on occasion crash about quite rapidly, including traveling over any "fulcrum(s)" that might exist underneath. For one thing, It would better explain how a large plate could come to rest underneath another, still intact; and for another, how subduction begins in the first place.

I think our world is much more dynamic than we've ever dreamed and I think on occasion, time frames required for major geological events to occur are relatively short indeed! :)

Agreeed.

I was watching a show on one of the history channels that showed a glacier that melted but right near the edge was almost entirely preserved moss and fauna. That was rapid change from almost 6 thousand years ago. I would assume that we have much learn about natural processes which would include plate tectonics.

Anyways the Farallon makes for an excellent fulcrum and like I said there is no reason that plate subduction and general collision stress would not transfer across the entire plate.

Also we have known for years that the eastern half of the North American plate is sinking...this sinking though slowed over the last few thousand years also undoubtedly would produce stress along a point or fracture zone.

Certainly we may indeed be seeing a rift develop right before our eyes.
