30 degrees of Separation

I noticed several years ago that major earthquakes shared an harmonic frequency with Low Pressure areas. This is what I beleve is happening.

(For what that's worth.)
It doesn't prove anything. I doesn't evn indicate much. As far as I can tell it's just a coincidence -and not that much of a coincidence at that.

Or is it? …

In 1964 one of the world's largest earthquakes shook Alaska near Anchorage. It raised some land about 2 metres and dropped a parallel tract next to it, by about the same amount.

There was no fault visible but geologists studying the deformation came up with the idea it was faulted deep below ground.

Which is to say they didn't know what else to say.

Here is my take on these things:
Suppose the experts have got the boots on the wrong feet. Suppose that instead of earthquakes making all the noise, there is an harmonic to the planet; seismic waves, that causes earthquakes.

You don't get rivers without mountains and apparently you don't get valleys without them too, neither. You need mountains to affect the weather and make it rain regularly in that west east to process we know so well.

But that's all water under the bridge.

No doubt the quake in Alaska was caused by the movement of water under the region. The world will have to wait and see. Mysteries now, become god given insights later -and then taken for granted by a jaded a generation after that.

On a much larger scale but over a much larger time period (though still only a moment ago in geological terms, if you want to believe the speleological spiel) something similar has been happening with Scandinavia and Scotland.

(Time isn't a factor in geology. OK, it is for growing reefs and such but Scandinavia rose the same distance Alaska did. Think about it. The Norse god of the depths took from Anders Celsius to now to accomplish what took a matter of seconds in Manitou's realm?)

How about this for some as yet inexplicable but circumstantial evidence:

If you have a globe and some masking tape or Selotape (just to protect the globe) mask over the lakes that arc through Canada from Cape Bathurst to New York.

Put a patch over Cape Fear in Greenland (its southernmost point.)

Set a compass at 30 degrees against the globe and draw an arc through the lakes.

For obvious reasons it won't work on a flat map, as in an atlas. But, if you don't have a globe, you can get some idea by setting the point in the west coast where the Arctic Circle cuts it. Make the compass some 33 to 35 degrees and it should do the same, more or less.

I cut a disc out of a cereal box and strung some thread across the hole to give me a centre and then went looking for some more:

Centred about 35N. 167W. (10 degree north of Gardner Pinnacles, Hawaii) it sits nicely over the curve of the coast of North America from Vancouver to Juneau. It then crosses into Asia at the narrows and on down the coast of Kamchatka.

South of Vancouver the same disc runs along the US coast through the Panama Isthmus at Lake Nicaragua and up to that point on Greenland again. The centre is somewhere around Detroit in the Great Lakes.

Another one?

Centred on Nkongsamba it runs along the coast of North Africa along the Mediterranean and down through the Red Sea.

And finally:
Centred in the centre of the gyre off western South America, near Easter Island, the curve runs pretty well from just north of Lima to just north of Buenos Aires (Puero Aisen.)

That's it.

Well except for Australia.

Let's have a look at that.

Centred in the north of Lake Torrens, it cuts through New Zealand and up past Vanuatu and up just outside a host of islands in an arc as far as the Equator.

Right that's it, no more.

Well except… there's a ring of Asian lakes from Baikal to the Black Sea. They correspond to the same arc as in North America. The centre is in the southern end of an island off Siberia called Novaya Zemlya. It cuts Greenland somewhere just north of the Arctic Circle.

That is absolutely it. I am not looking at any more tonight.

Unless…
If I make a bigger circle….

*******

Why do these things have centres? That region near Iceland is known for a Winter phenomenon called the Aleutian – Iceland Oscillation; something similar to the so called El Nino effect.

But the Hawaii based centre sits in the centre of the North Pacific gyre. Does that have many Lows… wait…
That will be a centre for high pressures something like the Bermuda/Azores High; won't it?

What about that South American one then? Another gyre centre.

Hmm.. Just found another one: About 50 degrees north 90 east.

It's got to mean something. But what?
