Japanese Earthquakes

I started writing this some time ago and then got offtrack. …

Having the sort of mind that can discover the secrets to forecasting earthquakes has its drawbacks. Here is an example of the process at work:

The Bonin Islands and the Volcano Islands are on a ridge that extends south of Japan. The site is some 80 degrees from Jan Mayen Island in the Norwegian Sea.

I don't know where these blokes got their data for this map of ocean floors but they seem to want to copyright it.

Why you'd do that for an educational thing I can't say. Maybe I aught to ask their permission to post it. But then I wouldn't get it because I'd want to know where they got the money and the data to make it in the first place.

The "startling" occurrence of a complex Low to the east of Greenland and filling the Norwegian Sea from the 7th of March 2011, had the deepest focus over Jan Mayen Island. It just appeared overnight.
How?


7th March 2011

I say startling because there didn't seem a reason for the set up to occur. Maybe it would help if I had access to the six hourly sequences. The spell before had an anticyclone in the Norwegian Sea. Where did that go so suddenly?


March 6th 2011

I got these charts from the "WetterZentrale fax archiv" page. If I wanted better I'd go to Exitdoor for them. But the thousands of people killed because I don't wish to, is down to the UK government not me.

(Yes folks that country that brought you Thatcherism and YUPPIES brought you this.)

With the previous severe earthquake in Bonin Islands there was an High over the UK. It disappeared with the quake. This is what happened here with the Honshu quake too. The last Bonin Islands quakes before the present series took place on the 6th (this post written on the 15 March 2011.)

When you see the standing wave that causes desolation standing where it does not belong (let the reader use wise judgement and logic) flee from the centre. Don't stop to prepare for the journey, just get the hell out of it. For as the planetary wave comes off the Atlantic and runs over to the Pacific, so shall the coming of the tribulation be.

Matthew 24.

I can't help thinking the expression "let the reader use his own understanding" -reportedly used by Jesus Christ in the above misquote, would apply to a host of different circumstances to every generation since the man spaketh.

  1. How did I know the library was going to crap out on my post?Ah, maybe not.It looks like the pictures are loading. I'll have to remove the tag that says:Verdamt McAfee!–But not yet

  2. And now it seems I can't access the photo albums to put the graphics on there in the misbelief that the server in the library can pull its finger out loading the damned things if I do that.I have the page open at "create a new album" but it won't let me fill it in.Tys goode hyre!

  3. Let's go down another lane:The Japanese government is pumping 800 billion something or others into the local economy. Revised upwards from the earlier 400 thousand million.(I think it's now £150 billion (thousand million ) now. It keeps changing.)Japan was much harder hit by the economic collapse of the Bush erro. Makes one wonder where it all went, does it not? How many rich bankers are there, so many that we never noticed the sharp increase in their incomes? And where on earth are they going to spend it all?The idea of living the lifestyle is to get rich as quick as you can in a hostile environment, then pissing off to a place that has not yet been ruined (so that you can leave your children and grandchildren so rich and indolent and greedy and grasping that they can proceed to ruin that environment.)The thing is that with no TV and a climate that doesn't require you spend 30 years paying for your house, all you need to do all day is eat fish, grow fruit and make sure your goats don't stray too far. The rest of the time you can sit under a tree and make love to your wife when you are not fishing.But with a TV and a 30 year mortgage, you need to work all the hours god sends and there isn't that much time for picnics by the sea with the woman you love, who would rather be home watching Coronation Street.Now thousands of Japanese are lining the beaches, washed up after the tidal wave. And in the middle of Spring, they will be kept warm by the washed up detritus from the several nuclear furnaces currently going apeshit.All very sad.But what can you do?Question from BBC interviewer:So how are you coping with no electricity and no gasoline and being completely cut off?Answer from translator:All very terrible, very terrible You must send help. Help us. It doesn't matter where from, just help us.Next question from BBC interviewer:Where were you when the disaster struck?Question from listener to the BBC:WTF are you asking him that for YSC! Ask him how we can help!!!<Switches off radio in disgust and goes to write/rant on his home computer.>(The BBC has been sending me threatening letters because I refuse to pay the TV tax. Apparently they can get a court order to enter my house and check to see if I am watching TV. As if I wouldn't switch the bloody thing off when they come! Stupid bastards. Who the bloody hell would watch TV with broadcasting standards of that calibre?They have sound cars that travel openly around the country advertising that they are watching you.What they are actually doing is listening to you. The average home isn't fitted with infrared proof window meshes to prevent such surveillance.We think we are better off than the USA as we don't have the NSA listening to all our phone calls (hah!) but we don't realise the government has been listening to us going to the toilet, eating our dinners, watching TV and making love as well as planning all sorts of devious behaviour, since the end of WW2.They can probably even hear us picking our noses and scratching our backsides.I'd like to see the evidence they have on me. I can't wait to get to court. I wonder what they have to show the magistrate to get a search warrant.I talk to myself a lot. I want to know what I tell me. I can never remember.Come to think of it, I have never asked me.What sort of person would do a job like that? Or be a prison guard?What would make a man get out of bed to go to work with locked up miscreants and keep them from socialising with everyone except the wrong sort of people and prison guards?What would make a grown adult wake up one day and say: "I think I 'll be a prison guard for the next 10 to 40 years."?Fancy going to prison voluntarily. What would you think about at work and look back on at the end of your life as a job well done?Or go to college for about 3 years, after nearly 15 years in school as a competent and regular attendee and homework doer and get a not very outstanding diploma as an electrical engineer and spend the rest of your life in a small van patrolling side streets in drab towns for the rest of your life for the rest of your life for the rest of your life for the rest of your life?Wouldn't you rather be in prison with the guards and the people who actually know how to enjoy themselves when they don't get caught by the BBC?)

  4. How big is a plume?Why don't you know?They must have been detected rising.Or rather "undetected" rising.Where are the sonar charts for those?Steam under pressure is called water. It might be white hot but it will still be water if the pressure is enough. And if the pressure isn't enough, the steam explodes into a gas. Steam with enough containment to become a gas evolving enough power to be compared with atomic weapons would leave a considerably larger crater than the ones made during and shortly after WW2.The magnitudes 4 to 5 is something like the energy released from a WW2 type atom bomb.Where are the craters?When a mine thousands of feet deep and a few feet in diameter collapses, it does so because the ground above it has fallen in on it. It falls in because the tides in the earth and untold other vibrations cause instability on unmaintained shuttering.The hole or crater might be big enough to swallow the houses in a small street. The magnitude is thus easily worked out. Weigh one house and multiply it by the number of houses that fall in and the distance deep they go to.The event might take decades, a century or more. But eventually the houses fall in overnight.And the crater can be measured.Easily.How many shakes and what amplitude have they had in the recent Japanese events?Where are the craters? Here endeth the first lesson.

  5. I began writing the following some time before I heard of the recent disaster in Japan: Japanese QuakesAll major anomalies in the sea surface pressures of the North Atlantic predict earthquakes. The only exceptions to this rule are those anomalies of less severity.All anomalies occur before "natural disasters".Volcanic activity or major tropical storms. (The chart can also predict tornadoes but that is not "anomalous" behaviour.(Greenland Highs and anticyclones to the south east at around 45 N are hardly anomalies.)The reason is:1. The cause of all so called natural disasters (severe geo-phenomena) is the same. And 2. God (Yahweh, Adonai, Jehovah or "The Lord" or Allah*) will not do a single thing unless he tells us about it first.*Interesting the Muslim version of the divine name is similar to the Welsh one (Hughie.) It's nice when you are on first name terms with your god. It reminds me that religion is supposed to be about helping or saving people, not killing them.The chart is from the 6th March 2011.(Not included, it appears in the original post so there is no need to add it here.)*******Hughie…Man, that shows how easily a cracked mind can be derailed.The divine name is written in Hebrew as HWHY. A lot of welsh slate hewers are called Hughes When used as a first name it is often reffered to as Hughie (that is called a "dimunitive".)Hebrew is written and read right to left. We in the west of Europe read and write left to right. The name actually reads Yhwh, Yahweh or Jehovah. And the Welshification of Jehovah is Ierhofa (Or something like that.)The Welsh pronunciation of Yhwh is more like Owie, a pet name for a man called Owen (which means a lamb AIIRC -a sheep is a defaid (pronounced devide) not distantly unrelated to Dafidd -David (pronounced Davith.)DAMN!I just got sidetracked again.

  6. There now follows a long interminable list of quakes from the NEIC and Red Puma; edited to show only Japanese and a couple or three relevant quakes:5.4 M. 38.4 143.1 off the east coast of Honshu, Japan6.1 M. 38.3 142.6 near the east coast of Honshu, Japan4.9 M. 38.2 142.5 near the east coast of Honshu, Japan6.0 M. 38.5 143.1 off the east coast of Honshu, Japan6.1 M. 38.3 142.5 near the east coast of Honshu, Japan4.8 M. 38.5 143.2 off the east coast of Honshu, Japan4.7 M. 38.3 143.1 off the east coast of Honshu, Japan5.1 M. 38.5 143.0 off the east coast of Honshu, JapanOwing to the vagaries of the NEIC listing process the magnitudes sometimes appear on the first column and some on the last column before the place name. If I haven't put a letter with the latitude and longitude the convention is that degrees north and east are represented with a + sign (not given here) and degrees south or west have a negative sign (given e.g. 70.8 -6.27 Jan Mayen Island region)10 March 20115.2 M. 38.0 143.2 off the east coast of Honshu, Japan5.1 M. 38.6 143.0 off the east coast of Honshu, Japan5.2 M. 38.6 143.1 off the east coast of Honshu, Japan4.8 M. 38.5 143.2 off the east coast of Honshu, Japan5.7 M. 38.6 143.3 off the east coast of Honshu, Japan4.8 M. 38.9 142.4 near the east coast of Honshu, Japan4.6 M. 38.4 143.4 off the east coast of Honshu, Japan5.0 M. 38.4 143.0 off the east coast of Honshu, Japan9 March 2011.4.8 M. 38.3 143.2 off the east coast of Honshu, Japan4.7 M. 38.7 143.0 off the east coast of Honshu, Japan4.8 M. 38.6 143.0 off the east coast of Honshu, Japan5.3 M. 38.6 143.1 off the east coast of Honshu, Japan5.1 M. 38.8 142.9 near the east coast of Honshu, Japan5.0 M. 38.2 143.1 off the east coast of Honshu, Japan5.1 M. 38.2 143.0 off the east coast of Honshu, Japan4.9 M. 38.6 143.0 off the east coast of Honshu, Japan4.7 M. 37.8 145.1 off the east coast of Honshu, Japan5.3 M. 38.5 142.7 near the east coast of Honshu, Japan5.7 M. 38.6 142.9 near the east coast of Honshu, Japan5.2 M. 38.7 143.0 off the east coast of Honshu, Japan4.8 M. 38.8 142.6 near the east coast of Honshu, Japan5.2 M. 38.8 142.4 near the east coast of Honshu, Japan5.0 M. 38.7 142.9 near the east coast of Honshu, Japan5.2 M. 38.3 143.0 off the east coast of Honshu, Japan5.6 M. 38.4 142.8 near the east coast of Honshu, Japan7.2 M. 38.4 142.8 near the east coast of Honshu, Japan8 March 2011.7 March 2011.5.0 M. 29.0 129.3 Ryukyu Islands, Japan4.9 M. 29.0 129.3 Ryukyu Islands, Japan6 March 2011.4.7 M. 26.9 143.5 Bonin Islands, Japan Region4.7 M. 26.9 143.6 Bonin Islands, Japan Region5.0 M. 26.8 143.6 Bonin Islands, Japan Region4.9 M. 27.0 143.6 Bonin Islands, Japan Region4.6 M. 70.8 -6.27 Jan Mayen Island region4.7 M. 26.9 143.7 Bonin Islands, Japan RegionSo what happened on the 8th, that no Japanese quakes occurred? Something must have signalled the move to a different location but what?The rest of the dates concern a different spell which is why no quakes of interest occurred:5th4th3rdI cut out a lot from the article I wrote and will post them on a following blog for those suficiently interested. (I.e. me.)

  7. A different library and the same old problem.I'd like to post most of the above graphics into my albums but it will not go.Nevermind, nobody will notice.Here is the run of North Atlantic SSP (sea surface pressure) charts from WetterZentrale. 10th down to 6th March 2011: The Low system persisted until the 12th, so have the aftershocks. Today on the 13th, the original shock:7.2 Mag. 38.4 N. 142.8 E. (near the east coast of Honshu, Japan 9 March 2011) has been upgraded to a Mag 9.I can't help thinking that the huge leap in its intensity shows a lack of objectivity.It is common for the magnitude of quakes reported in the recent NEIC list to be revised downwards by 2 points. Not many get an upgrade and it is a puzzle how the initial magnitude was so far out.It takes a few days to aggregate all the reports that come in from stations that monitor quakes. It is then analysed and a more likely revision of the magnitude is estimated. this shows up on the 8 to 30 day list.Some time later the serious quakes are researched and a most likely magnitude finally placed on them.I suppose I now have to look for the reports and charts I have for the relevant Bonin Island earthquakes. They are spread all over my computer.I hate paperwork and looking up files and analysing them is paperwork, as far as I am concerned.What I came here to do this afternoon is find the NIS list of major quakes for 2011 and add them to the stuff I already have in order to make a run I can compare the North Atlantic SSP charts with.I'm pretty certain it will show blocking highs involve the UK just before the quake. (Yes,just look at the bottom chart. The High disappeared fromover the UK after the 7th.)The High breaks and the weather changes thereafter.Which means these things ARE predictable.

  8. OK back to earthquakes. <rant mode off~ish>I suppose that in a seismically active area there is no starting point for an event. You look at the news and you think: "This has just happened."If that was so, you must also ask yourself: "So why are the first quakes always the largest?".Why don't you?Go on, ask!If the stuff is caused by subduction and obduction, the moisture caught and taken down and eventually released to the near surface where it releases its pressure steamlessly, should cause random magnitudes and occur over much wider areas than in series of such aftershocks as is seen from the above records.Yes, the line of the list runs up and down quite a large stretch of earth. And I deliberately left out the stuff on the same longitude from the Kurils and Kamchatka. But it still fails to meet the level of randomness that chaotic pressure release would seem logical. Even if you consider the quakes from earlier spells as prequakes, there is still much too much of a regular wave train for that sort of compromise.And where does the steam go? Presumably the measuring instruments are not geared for thermal gradients. OK. But why has no one gone to a place where the tremors are more or less continual and measured them then?After a super-quake the tremors can go on for several days and all of them at epicentres within a mile or two. Has nobody ever thought of dropping a radio sonde in a small well nearby? A surveyor's drilling rig shouldn't be that hard to come up with. It's not as if the technology is too expensive.Look at the list above. There aren't enough places to fulfil the prophecy of "…reports of earthquakes in one place after another…". I haven't counted but I doubt it is more than half a dozen location -two or three of them put in for reference to other parts of the post.Look at the map references here:2010/12/2426.78N 143.94E 4.9 M.26.93N 143.76E 4.5 M.26.77N 143.93E 4.8 M.26.96N 143.81E 4.3 M.27.10N 143.37E 4.9 M.27.04N 143.23E 5.4 M.26.97N 143.45E 4.6 M.27.00N 143.45E 4.8 M.OK a lot more than "within a mile or two" apart. As you would expect from bubbles rising up through thousands of miles of variegated multi-hued strata, the plops up are tenths of a degree apart. Is that reasonable?A tenth of a degree is about 6 or 7 miles. And the epicentres are derived as vibrations measured from several points hundreds or even thousands of miles away. And averaged out between them. What sort of distances?26.7 to 27.1 degrees isn't all that far for something caused by continents mating.4/10ths of 60 nautical miles.Measured with a very long tape.And no statement of accuracy.Call it 5 miles statute.That's not the radius of a plume is it?You couldn't drop a marble 6 feet through air that accurately!What the bloody hell?WTF?

Unfortunately I like to see the location given at the end of the line. No matter, I know the approximate longitude I am after and any other anomalies will show through my mind set (hopefully.)125 major quakes but more than a few occur on the same days.So only a few charts are needed. 85 or so. And I have every 00:00 SSP for 2010.Not only that but the search for archived SSPs on the FNMOC site got me data on tropical storms.(I can't remember if they included 2010 as I was trying to find something else at the time. Just shows how difficult it can be to keep an open mind.)The Met Office used to do them. Maybe they will again now they have got their super computer (that nearly was at one time) up and running.I also saved the lists of volcanic activity from the Smithsonian archives. Not that I know how to insert them to any purpose. I've an idea they will only matter for events (or non events) not shown here.Blocking Lows?Is that possible?Yes, lows over the Azores must occur often enough to supply rain to the land, it's verdant enough after all. But out of sequence stuff?Never mind that; I have already noticed an anomaly with the FENMOC stuff. A cycle of super-typhoons of 40 year intervals.(Pauses for thought; 30 years would have been nicer. But it vindicates something I have averred a long time ago about thunder storms and more recently flash floods.)Besides I promised myself I'd sort out Vietnamese typhoons. And that is part of it.But that's enough for now time for a brain wipe. <shuts down egoputer>

  11. Now to get back on track.Another factor in major earthquakes is the following weather tends to be wintery in the worst way for those in desperate need.Which is probably what Jesus was alluding to for the days following Armageddon. Just because you have seen the light at last, doesn't automatically mean you are not left with the results of the dark.The instigator of the tides, the weather and the seismicity of the earth is the moon. And these are the phases for 2010 and 2011.As you can see from the tables produced by Fred Espenak of NOAA; we are in the middle of the spell that started on the 12th of March:12 Mar 23:4519 Mar 18:10This is a code for foggy weather in Britain as is the following spell.Divide the time of the phase by 6 and you get the type of weather to expect.24/8 = 0.Yes I know it is 4 but that is not the code.18/6 = 0 too.What you should be looking at is the remainder for 19/6 is 1 not "3 and a bit".How do I know this?Trial and error. (With lots of error.)Foggy weather in Britain is associated with cold weather even snow. Low cloud prevents limited winter sunlight warming anything, it also help prevent the night time temperatures falling. A bit.But they aren't going to fall much below freezing anyway are they?Not in a maritime environment.A key to frost is anticyclonic weather. And that tends to occur with lunar phases at 5 or 11 o'clock. (11/6 = 5/6 = 5.)Would it be easier to think of the code as an algorithm where successive sixes are removed from the time until what is left is a number less than 6?4 Mar 20:46 isn't an anticyclonic spell normally but of course the code is different for times when there are going to be massive earthquakes. It is an anomally after all. And the anomaly shows up as a series of Highs and Lows "standing" in places where they do not belong.One such anomaly is the North Atlantic Oscillation.The normal course of events in the North Atlantic is for the area around Iceland and Greenland to have Low Pressure.When it has Highs, that is considered the negative aspect of the oscillation.More contemporary understanding has it somewhat different and they only look at the winter period. But they have a quasi-religious philosophy about all that crap.I don't know anything about the weather in Japan. But then I don't know all that much about the weather here too, neither.20107 Jan 10:4015 Jan 07:1123 Jan 10:5330 Jan 06:185 Feb 23:4914 Feb 02:5122 Feb 00:4228 Feb 16:387 Mar 15:4215 Mar 21:0123 Mar 11:0030 Mar 02:256 Apr 09:3714 Apr 12:2921 Apr 18:2028 Apr 12:186 May 04:1514 May 01:0420 May 23:4327 May 23:074 Jun 22:1312 Jun 11:1519 Jun 04:3026 Jun 11:304 Jul 14:3511 Jul 19:4018 Jul 10:1126 Jul 01:373 Aug 04:5910 Aug 03:0816 Aug 18:1424 Aug 17:051 Sept 17:228 Sept 10:3015 Sept 05:5023 Sept 09:171 Oct 03:527 Oct 18:4414 Oct 21:2723 Oct 01:3630 Oct 12:466 Nov 04:5213 Nov 16:3921 Nov 17:2728 Nov 20:365 Dec 17:3613 Dec 13:5921 Dec 08:1328 Dec 04:1820114 Jan 09:0312 Jan 11:3119 Jan 21:2126 Jan 12:573 Feb 02:3111 Feb 07:1818 Feb 08:3624 Feb 23:264 Mar 20:4612 Mar 23:4519 Mar 18:1026 Mar 12:073 Apr 14:3211 Apr 12:0518 Apr 02:4425 Apr 02:473 May 06:5110 May 20:3317 May 11:0924 May 18:521 Jun 21:039 Jun 02:1115 Jun 20:1323 Jun 11:481 Jul 08:548 Jul 06:2915 Jul 06:4023 Jul 05:0230 Jul 18:406 Aug 11:0813 Aug 18:5821 Aug 21:5529 Aug 03:044 Sept 17:3912 Sept 09:2720 Sept 13:3927 Sept 11:094 Oct 03:1512 Oct 02:0620 Oct 03:3026 Oct 19:562 Nov 16:3810 Nov 20:1618 Nov 15:0925 Nov 06:102 Dec 09:5210 Dec 14:3618 Dec 00:4824 Dec 18:06I don't know what the codes are for Blocking Highs. But I am going to post the charts showing them and you will be able to see what the cause is for yourselves.Or not, as the case may be.What is certain is that the number of days with Highs over Greenland has been huge lately. I wonder what lunar cycle is involved in that.The fact is that the number increased so much after the Sumatera earthquake of December 2004 and the record breaking Hurricane season in the North Atlantic in 2005 that I was unable to give a half-way decent annual forecast for years afterwards.The Lunar Phase code is with a positive aspect in the North Atlantic, that is mostly Icelandic Lows in the right place:12 and 6 o'clock = foggy or cols1 and 7 o'clock = Lows or troughs2 and 8 o'clock = 3 and 9 o'clock = thundery or anticyclonic and flash floods4 and 10 o'clock = 5 and 11 o'clock = anticlonic or ridges6 and 12 o'clock… repeatedThe times of 2;4;8 and 10 produce a marked likelihood for tornadoes and derechos. But until very recently I have always been confused by them.They fall out the mainstream for Britain but have marked patterns in the North Atlantic.Highs over Greenland tend to occur when a series of instabilities in the above code are present.Major instabilities occur in some of these spells when the time of the phase is near 20 minutes to or past the hour.Here endeth the second lesson.

  13. How do I calculate the distance from the Bonin Islands to Fukushima?27.0°N. 143.6°E. to 38.3°N. 142.4°E.143.6°E. to 142.4°E. is nothing just over a degree, nothing. OK 66 to 70 miles. Something like that.27.0°N. to 38.3°N. is over 11 degrees. But that isn't 9000 km. I know I am useless at this newfangled metric stuff but I should have realised that 60 or 70 times 11 isn't anywhere near 9000.What a prat!Call it 800 miles = 1300 km.(1287.4752km. But who's counting?)OK 74 quakes. But it is still half the world total. Not so striking though.

is:There were 155 quakes world wide, of Magnitude 6 or over, from 1October 2010 to 30 June 2011.There were 133 quakes within 9000 km of Fukushima, of Magnitude 6 or over, from 1October 2010 to 30 June 2011.155 to 133 is?

  15. I have to praise modern computing (Firefox on Zorin OS a Ubuntu derivative) for storing my data during a temporary electricity black-out.I got as far as this:

    7723 quakes earth-wide compared to 3370 for the same region in the same dates. 2.3 times as many (or as few?)4353 more (or less) that is.This is all very silly of course as most of the data concerns events after the largest quake and I should be looking for precursors.I'll start a new thread with the search ending on the day of the super-quake. Maybe include the sup

    when my electricity meter ran out of WonderStretch knicker elastic.I was gobsmacked when I saw it had saved the stuff still on the reply box.Well done to whoever invented that bit of kit.Nice one whoever you are.
