Chinese Earthquakes

Earthquakes and Tornadoes. A matter of degree. …

I first noticed the relationship with Chinese quakes and tornadoes in the USA when the disaster struck Southern Sichuan on the 12th May, I was looking at this Tornado Database.

I was trying to sort them into numbers for the whole country (USA) per day. At present they are stored per state and it is impossible to compile a useful graph of them as such.

All of a sudden the news was full of the Sichuan tragedy. I noticed subsequent shocks occurred along with a peak of US tornadoes. I was already posting how a cyclone leaving the US at Cape Hatteras would occur with an earthquake some 80 degrees distant; over in the Aleutians.

(Fox or Andreanof Islands IIRC.)

When the Sichuan spate was over, the US was free of tornadoes and has remained so more or less. When it first died off I could still see that pattern but then all of a sudden there appeared series of tremors that are now notable around Puerto Rico. I hadn't seen that these spates were so interesting as I was ignoring that part of the lists in those days.

However I did notice the tornadoes were finished and wondered why. OK, the lunar phases were not favouring them but the one or two that might were ineffective. So I started looking.

I never solved that puzzle but I did notice that the Lows off Carolina were not alone in occurring along with quakes. Any cyclone on any side of north America and also any anticyclone seemed to be having that sort of effect.

Moreover, the power of the quakes was increased if there were two or more such weather fronts crossing the beaches one way or the other at the same time.

Since then I have isolated the likelihood of precipitation entering California and leaving the southern coastal states as related to mid Californian quakes.

And if you look at the low pressure that was the hurricane before Ike, it filled up the eastern side of the Rockies before drifting east to leave the USA at the Canadian border and subsequently offshore at Newfoundland (IIRC.) By the time it crossed into the sea, Ike was coming ashore at Texas.

And the resulting earthquake in the Aleutians was about as high as they reach there, 5.5 or something.

Anyway you can check for yourself at the database above how far the tornadoes were from the epicentre:

Good luck.

I will translate this to another website where I can use Chinese. I'll post the link later.

  1. 地震和龙卷风,程度上的问题。我首先注意到了5月12日发生在中国四川的地震和美国的龙卷风的关系,我正在查看这个龙卷风数据库。 我试图把它们按照全国每天的数目来排序,而目前,他们的是按照每个州的方式存储的,不可能绘制一个这样可用的图表。突然,新闻中充满了四川的悲剧。我注意到随后的余震都是伴随着美国的龙卷风的高峰而发生的。我已经写了为何暴风会和80度之遥,在阿留申群岛之外的地震同时发生,然后在哈特拉斯角离开美国。(如果我没记错的话,是Fox或者Andrianof岛)当四川的地震结束后,美国也摆脱了龙卷风的侵扰,但或多或少地还残留着一些。当????我还可以看见那些图案,但是突然又发生了一系列的震动,现在还可以在波多黎各感受到。我以前从没有注意到这些大量的震动也值得让人关注,因为过去那些日子我都一直忽视了这一部分。不过,我确实注意到龙卷风结束了????,为什么?月相并不有利于龙卷风,但有一个或两个可能是无效的。所以我开始观察。我还一直没有解决那个谜题,但确实注意到“Lows off Carolina”并不是单独和地震同时发生的,任何在北美海岸的龙卷风和反气旋都似乎有那样的效应。而且,如果有两个或者以上的这样的天气在海岸这样那样地穿行时,地震的能量就会增加。从那时起,我就孤立了突降雨离开南方海岸进入加利福尼亚与加利福尼亚中部的地震有联系的可能性。如果你看一下龙卷风之前的低气压的话,就会发现,在向东前进,并且于加拿大边境离开美国然后在纽芬兰岛上岸之前,低气压充满了整个洛基山脉的东面。(如果我没记错的话)???????????????而结果发生在阿留申的地震和???一样剧烈,大概5.5级或者差不多的大小。总之,你可以自己在上面的数据库查看龙卷风离地震震中有多远。

  2. My translation, hope it helps:中国的地震地震和龙卷风在程度上的相似问题。当5月12日那天查看这个龙卷风数据库的时候,我首先注意到了这次发生在中国西南的四川地震和美国的龙卷风之间的关系。我试图以美国全国每天发生的龙卷风数目来进行排序,但因为目前的数据仅仅按州别存储,以至于很难将之用于绘制一个那样的图表。突然之间,新闻中充满了这个四川悲剧。我注意到随后的余震都伴随美国龙卷风的高发期而发生。那时我已经在研究为何龙卷风会和相隔八个时区,甚至远在阿留申群岛之外的地震同时发生,然后在哈特拉斯角离开美国了(如果我没记错的话,是Fox或者Andrianof岛)。当四川的地震结束后,美国也摆脱了龙卷风的困扰,但或多或少还有一些残余。当它们开始逐渐消失的时候,我还可以看见那些图案。但突然之间,图像出现了一系列的颤动,特别是在波多黎各地区,我从没有意识到过这些颤动的价值,那时我一直都忽略了这一部分。不过,我确实注意到龙卷风结束了,也开始思考为什么会出现这种情况。月相并不有利于龙卷风,但有一个或两个可能是无效的,所以我开始深入观察这种现象。我一直没有解决这个难题,但确实注意到和地震同时发生的“Lows off Carolina”并非孤例,任何在北美海岸的龙卷风和反气旋似乎都有这样的效应。此外,如果有两个及以上的这类锋面以这样或那样的方式在海岸线附近交会时,地震的能量就会增加。从那时起,我就锁定了出现在加州,并随后离开南部海岸的这些龙卷风与加州中部的地震有联系的可能性。如果你注意观察艾克飓风之前的低气压的话,就会发现在它东进加拿大并离岸前往纽芬兰岛以前,低气压充满了整个洛基山脉的东面(如果我没记错的话)。当它进入海洋时,艾克正在前往德克萨斯的路上。而发生在阿留申的地震也和它们到达时的强度相似,5.5级或更高。总之,你可以自己在上面的数据库查看龙卷风离地震震中有多远。

  3. I can rabbit on like this for hours.It takes 80% of the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of water from 0 to 100 degree Centigrade to turn the water at 100 degrees Centigrade into steam.So not counting the latent heat required to melt ice, it takes 180% to go from ice-cold to steam where it only takes 100% heat input from ice-cold to boiling.But water isn't boiled off in the sea. It is caught up as foaming the tops of waves and swept into the air.Most of it falls back. Some of it stays in the air, dissolved as a gas. Which means that the stuff that falls back is colder and saltier than the water it falls back into.It's energy value has been taken by the atmosphere to be used as latent heat to keep some of the air inside it.When the brine falls back into the sea it drops through the surface until it finds its own level.This is called the Thermo-Haline column. Cold water is more dense than warm. Salt water is more dense than fresh. (It is the way that the Arctic Ocean remains at the same temperature from east to west and top to bottom all year through.)And it is the way the water travels down from the Arctic to the Antarctic.But for the sake of the North Atlantic Gyre it is how deep water "chimneys" or whirl-pools occur.Millions of tons of water move anticlockwise [Oops! Clockwise] around the North Atlantic every minute, day and night; every day and every night. It never stops. It can slow down and it can speed up.When it slows down, more water warms up. This rises from as deep as 30 or more feet and eventually becomes cloud that blocks the sun.It stops the sun heating the water.But it doesn't stop the warm stream coming in from the Equator. Clouds rise, salt water falls and a temperature gradient takes place where the cloudy weather moves north. And this is what we see when we look at stop motion satellite pictures. Especially IR photos.And now you know as much about the weather as I do.Keep up the good work.*******Translators wanted.

  4. All I can see are rows of ones or 1s, I, l, or !s.But keep them coming. I will post them on.Here is one I prepared earlier:In the ancient times big storms were called Tempests. The people who once lived in Florida called them Uricans. In the Mediterranean they might have any of a dozen or more names depending where their paths are.One mentioned in the Bible is the Euriquillo. It drove a ship to Malta where the priest on board (a prisoner of conscience) was released and performed miracles. Now we call our part of the continenet west of the Urals: Europe.Everywhere else on this land mass is called Asia.The Chinese under Admiral He would have called it something else.Every coastal country has its own name for Lows or Cyclones of various intensities but we say that the Lows in the North Atlantic are called Hurricanes when their wind speeds reach 64 knots on the Saffir-Simpson Scale:Category One Hurricane: 64-82 knots, 74-95 mph,or 119-153 km/hr.Because wind scales increase in intensity in the same way all over the world, we call all Asian storms at that speed or over: "Typhoons".They behave in exactly the same way and you can use almost exactly the same rules to forecast them. Small differences may reflect the newness of the Pacific Ocean's floor. (That's my opinion of course.)There is a sliding scale to wind strength that matches the way sailing vessels all over the world have been designed from the days of Noah on. It is a logarithmic scale or sliding rule by which you can match the number of sails carried to the wind strength.This applied to the giant Ocean Liners of the Chinese Empire's fleets and the British Royal Navy Frigates a couple of centuries later. We call the first scale the Beaufort Scale but it was well known to all sailors all over the planet long before then.The top end has been reworked to take advantage of the abilities of aircraft to measure wind strengths up to Category Five Hurricanes:Winds greater than 135 knots; 155 mph, or 249 km/hr.And satellites can now determine finer scales using "The Dvorak Technique". They use his method to determine the sort of cyclone observed and thus how they might behave in whatever waters they might reach.It is said that for an hurricane to occur there must be a temperature flux of 5 degrees Centigrade. But of course in the cousre the sun has been blocked by the planet every 12 hours in any 24 hour interval. Night.And in the day, clouds.It must take unimaginable forces to empower a storm of the scales we are talking. It is impossible for that power to have come from solar heating.It's the sliding scale problem again. They are litterally pushing water uphill. Millions of tons of it. Rain falls through them like stair rods not water droplets.Worse, the water is running away at millions of cubic miles an hour.We call it the Gulf Stream. And it's current is strongest off the Florida, Georgia and Carolinas coasts. (States of the USA's Eastern Seaboard.) Right where the hurricanes in the North Atlantic reach their peak.Impossible! Butterfly effect?No chance.Can you see my point? Doesn't it make sense that such magical performances are godlike? They must be celestial at least.

(AP)The twister that nearly wiped out Greensburg, Kansas, was 1 of 22 that touched down in southern and central Kansas from the same thunderstorm complex the night of May 4, 2007, and early the next morning.The Greensburg tornado killed 11 people and had EF-3 or stronger damage in a track at least a mile wide.

    I will have to compare these phases, they seem quite sequential judging by their results. I seem to remember sand storms around that period too.

    So sue me, you tossers.

  6. 2007:Apr 24 06:36 May 2 10:09 May 10 04:272008:May 5 12:18 May 12 03:47 May 20 02:11 in mind that a lot of British meteorology buffs were flat footed this spell. The forecast I gave allowed for a shift in the location of snow from the UK to the USA.And it was so.SO these spells have a certain similarity with an accompanying shift:06:36 and 12:18 are similar types some 6 hours different.03:47 and 10:09 are similar types some 6 hours different.04:27 is a similar one to the preceding spell of 10:09. So there is a synergy lending itself to earthquakes.02:11 is close to a tornadic spell and it breaks sequence with the 03:47 spell.Pity really. Completely wrong footed me.Ah well something to think about. I wonder what storms were running.
