How far was the Chile/Argie eruption from the one in the Aleutians?
As it happens I think the mid-point was somewhere on the coast of the Carolinas in the USA.
So that would be the best way to start examining those (unless your name is Oriel, in which
case you just carry on looking fro eruptions inside your trousers lad, I'm sure you will
find a conical vent there to beat the band.)
I am assuming things have quietened down wherever for the moment. Today (31 May 2013) is
about as near a perfect example of what a Lunar Phase at 11:30 should be -except it is the
end of the spell today, not the beginning.
It will be interesting to see how the following one will take over as it is supposed to be a
wet one. But without the anticyclone in the Atlantic.

You can't say it hasn't been fun (for those of us it didn't touch.) So grab all these charts
and keep them filed for future reference:
Tornadoes should actually have ceased I think. Ecept the anticyclone n the Atlantic is
causing a block through which the first indications of a tornado cell forming forces a
passage; as can be seen here:
The incidence of earthquakes is low and they are all very low magnitude:
I use this run of MetO charts:
But these charts are updated more often:
I don't use them because they still fall over (or were doing so all the time I used them
Yesterdays charts would have been favourite as they were showing that all was about to
Something's brewing in them though but I can't tell what it is yet. More tornadoes most
Watch the edge at 180 degrees on this :
It shows there is a strom entering the system. It moves due SW for 4 degrees of longitude
than changes its behaviour.
Directly across Antarctica a dark mass of precipitate hits the coast during the period of
time. It is a generality of the wave that this happens nearly all the time. Pairs or triples
of some sort. As thought ings were being kept in balance in some celestial escapement.
But I think this one will be the most interesting:
if only because I know so little about it. Note which weather systems are where. They seem
to occupy a checkered pattern of Highs,Lows and Highs etc.
Three Lows in a row indicate a severe quake. I am not sure about what all the other patterns
indicate. So a good learning curve can be had by all, y'all.
