Potential difference

Some time ago I posted about the magnitude of earthquakes and the proximity of high and Low pressure areas. …

I suppose I aught to examine other oceans but I am only interested in a small part of this one, the North Atlantic. I take no blame for that. I was stuck with it by the extremely small scope of interest the MetO delves in.

If I knew where to find archives of charts from other meteorological offices and they covered enough data, maybe I'd spread my wings a little.

Maybe if I were stuck in a drift mine in West Virginia, I'd have time to re-evaluate my principles but since I am not and they will never know better and I don't think their neighbours will ever find out any different….. or care…

Nice spacing on this:

12 hours later the Low is back to the Negative cycle. The event has passed whatever it was.

But what else is visible in the above charts? Or not visible?

There is no pressure from one system on another. No squashing or squeezing. Such a demarcation between pressures may well symbolise the fact there is no pressure on the earth that produces earthquakes.

A dedicated search of all the oceans might show similar propensities -or their lack.

Here's a list of quakes from today from Midnight to Noon:

I'm pretty sure Opera won't carry them all so I will put the list on my files:

  1. Nothing to see here folks, move along.Roadkill with a bloody big legend. Nearly 1/4 of the chart obscured and not enough sea view anyway.Just as skanky as the MetO.

  2. I think I'll pass on saving the rest of this data.There will be another one of these things along by the end of the month.

  3. While there are a lot and I am sure that given the same detail earth-wide, there would be even more, the list doesn't have many significant quakes.If it were not for the fact that there were so many of them, most people would be inclined to shrug off anything below Mag 3. And few would be upset at stuff below Mag 4.There are only 4 at Mag 4 or higher and a Mag 5 doesn't appear until later that afternoon.It's a series of very low incidence. Yet not.It's interesting.Similar stuff happens after all major quakes. And that low Low pressure area off Iceland was just a blip that might otherwise pass off as coincidence.But there are no coincidences.Just coincidata.

  4. A large magnitude quake almost always follows a protracted period of similar weather. For some it is rain but in other places drought. The internet phrase YMMV is very true for it.In parts of Australia and in Southern California for example forest fires are not uncommon. Then when the weather breaks there is this sort of quake. A 7 M isn't anywhere near the power of a Chilean super-quake.The repercussions from that went on for about 2 or 3 weeks. When was that?It would be interesting to compute just how many pressure systems were within 80 degrees of the epicentre of these things. My guess is ALL of them.All of them for super-quakes, most of them for Magnitudes as large as or greater than 7.
