An attempt to show the relationship between earthquakes and tropical storms. …
No post attempting this demonstration can start without an animation showing the behaviour of the earth's weather over time.
The fact is that we all live at the bottom of an ocean whose currents start at the Equator in something called The Warm Pool. This current then migrates across the oceans even as it begins, if a spiral can be said to have a beginning. (For a spiral is no more than a complex circle. And they have no beginnings.)
At the equator there is in the oceans an as yet unexplained phenomenon caleed the counter current it is a rib of water that runs in the opposite direction to ocean gyres.
You must be at least vaguely familiar with ocean gyres?
The Gulf Stream is one.
And at some time in the not too distant future I will add graphics from one of the myriad US observatories showing the behaviour of these tropical waters.
But for now I have to assume you know what I am talking about.
There are only two major ocean bodies. The Atlantic and everywhere else.
That is silly.
But I am trying to keep this simple. There are in fact three major ocean bodies:
The Atlantic; The Indian and Pacific oceans together and the Arctic.
I have to create a graphic for the Indian/Pacific.
It is a remarkable looking object from the point of view of geology.
It is a marble with a cross section similar to half an onion.
I have mentioned all the above elsewhere in this blog but I have to repeat it here, now and (when I make it) insert said graphic.
I can't even begin to explain what follows unless and until you grasp the importance of this idea:
At the centre of the Pacific/Indian Ocean are a set of Islands that have an earthquake every time a tropical storm kicks off and every time these storms hit an obstacle. I can't prove it. But as the series of posts continue, for as long as I am able to post them (or an assistant can do so at my behest) this geo-phenomena will be shown to continue as long as The Ancient Of Days.
