I thought I was getting somewhere yesterday.
Today I can't even find my own drawing board. …
It is about 57 degrees from Tallinn to the epicentre of that large magnitude quake off Kamchatka yesterday.
I just checked and that major storm system immediately prior to the Banda Atjeh quake on Boxing Day 2004 was some 77 degrees -using Tallinn as the centre once again.
I don't remember where the storm centre was and the charts don't go far enough back (and they hid the archives at the end of my world in Exitdoor) so I can't be specific.
What I am sure of is that if I was trying to muddle through like this in the court of King Nebuchadnezzar, I'd be one of the astrologers getting fed to the lions.
In China they have a legend about two royal astronomers who failed to forecast a lunar eclipse. They got the chop too.
I'm glad I live in Britain. Failure here is not an option. It is expected.
Julius Caesar accused us of superstition, that we believed the sky is falling in on us.
As far as I'm concerned, it just did.
The only good thing about all this is that after the depression lifts, I might come up with another idea. At the moment, though, I am out of options.
I was hoping to try and connect vector analysis with storm power outputs and suggest some form of method for gauging the interaction between quakes and storms.
The worst thing about all this is that I still know I am right. When two consecutive quakes occur uninterrupted by any other quakes, a storm dies and it dies on a logarithmic sliding scale. That's an inverse square law isn't it?
And when a <7M occurs it twists the weather out of kilter world wide.
Or corrects it.
Either way it is the same inverse reaction.
