Things I just remembered when it was too late.
This is part of a huge file I will have to finish then edit then break down into lesser huge parts. …
Scotland is about 80 degrees from Japan just north of Tokyo. That 80 degrees is an interesting distance geomorphologically.
I was actually hoping for 120 degrees. If that is subjective or objective thinking I can't say. The Philippines is 120 degrees from the Greenwich Meridian, maybe that is what I was remembering. (Do it in time zones rather than the Mercator/dateline longitude.)
London to Tokyo is about 85 degrees.
Anyway, that's one.
Jan Mayen Island (midway between Iceland / Svalbard and Greenland / Northern Scandinavia) is about 80 degrees from the Volcano/Bonin Islands (about 9 to 12 degrees 'almost' south of Tokyo.)
And the ridge the Bonin and Volcano Islands are on runs due south from Sakhalin Island in the Sea of Okhotsk to Guam where it meets the transverse ridge on which the Carolinas sit. the ridge carries through to New Guinea.
You can draw the line through the mountainous country between the Cherskiy and Verkhoyansk Ranges to the Siberian peninsula that runs to the New Siberian Islands and joins the Lomonosov/Harris Ridge. That ridge crosses the Arctic sea through the North Pole and runs through the middle of Greenland.
From the southern tip of Greenland the planet dips into the North Western Atlantic basin, the iceberg depths where the Bismark and the Hood, the Titanic and all the long lost ships lie.
The serpentine Mid Atlantic Ridge runs west from there to Iceland on the Reykanes Ridge.
666.666 fathoms the Bismark/Titanic/Hood lies
Insert name of ship of disaster made
And coral doesn't grow there to make their bones
And pearly eyes have not the dead
It is down this ridge the mice run in the tortuous string of major earthquakes that occur when the North Atlantic Highs become anomalies.
The major earthquakes occur on the so called Ring of Fire. They occur on the ring of fire because of the not so called ring of rain that is the North Atlantic.
And they occur with a factor that points towards a spiral.
The so called ring of fire is more like a spiral that reaches from Chile to Japan via the Aleutians.
It's a bloody big spiral but the salient points are adequately displayed for us on the NEIC lists.
Take a look at the stuff from December 2010 to March this year.
I don't have data earlier than 13th Dec 2010. It's readily available though. And the charts for the North Atlantic are freely available if you live near Exit Door. Or you can speak German.
I can get the data I really want from Canada if I can afford to get them to do a search. So all I need to do is publish my ideas without the required data, become rich or and famous and then get the data I need for my research and bingo. No more cachee withee pantsee downee.
But the Met Office stuff will do.
