Trying to catch the wind

It's a scriptural principle that it can't be caught.
And we know that it is even more impossible to catch an earthquake.

Here's why: …

If you allow 2 hours for the NEIC to look at the data from that and
compare significant earthquakes fror the time coincidents, you get a
picture of the convergence/divergence thing.

  1. Deeper than it seems.A deep low over the UK formed in 24 hours around 1 Nov 2009:Explosively deepening low, 1 Nov 2009, an analysisWarning, .pdf So I looked up significant quakes on the US database: Originally posted by NEIC:

    Which is to say: Not! I wondered what happened instead. Was it a well forecast event -or rather, was the general trend expected?If so, no significant earthquake. But surely something coincided? What storms occurred in the tropics: Originally posted by Wikinews:

Another 22 people were reported to be missing. According to Vietnam News, the storm completely destroyed 154 houses, damaged 2,500 others, and flooded 1,800 hectares of farmland. Some dikes in the Phu Yen province were overloaded with water, further exacerbating the damage. Around 2,000 soldiers were dispatched to assist with rescue efforts, and local authorities had asked for food aid from the government. The Vietnamese disaster committee said that "it's the most devastating flooding in more than 30 years in Phu Yen." Two people were also killed by Mirinae in neigbouring Cambodia, and a further 27 in the Philippines.'s hope they didn't die in vain.

  2. I've just added the new things learned tag. I wonder where that went?It isn't really a new thing learned so much as a thing recently remembered.The conversion of a storm to an earthquake can be subverted to a more severe storm elsewhere. It's akin to an electrical circuit blowing a fuse.With ehe planet in general we have an "heat budget" the sun gives off more or less the same amount of heat, day in day out.Although this is a step in the process called Celestial Mechanics its effect is more or less the reaction to which our weather is a reaction.But there are steps in between oneof which is the atrometrical behaviour of the moon. Newton coined a phrase about offering no hypothesis. I think it wise advice, as error in early guesswork can be heartbreaking as you learn to make chnges in your bliefs.However you have to have some idea from which to branch.Here's mine.Just as the moon's arcs define our weather so do the arcs of the planets define the solar output. (The heat output is far too regular to be caused by inner turmoil that might be generated from a nuclear implosion.)The orbits and aberrations of the planets are so regular they can be forecast to small errors over many decades. It is a strange coincidense that all the large planets have smaller planets attached which make tiny corrections that hold the system in such finite positions.Too uncanny for accidental occurrence, IMNVHO.Time for work. More later.
