I have found an animation of the Bam Earthquake cloud compilation of satellite pictures - by Zhonghao Shou, a retired Chinese chemist living in New York.
I've supplied a link as I can't add the animation here visually...

Lots of us are quiet and lurk.... - but interested DW, keep up with that cloud theory till you either prove or disprove it, who knows, you may be onto something.

grin Petros, cheers to you.

There are some scientists (in several genres) who think the cloud theories are just hocus pocus (as I eluded to in another post). But there also a good number of those in the science field and those, like myself, who do feel such natural signs exist. The 'art' is in trying (well for me at least) to differentiate between the various normal cloud formations and those that seem to behave in a different manner. Nature does 'give off' many signals and the other 'art' is in recognizing, observing and reading them.

Such observations of the natural environment have been 'around' for possibly thousands of years. It is not 'new' science...and I love a challenge and am one of those characters who likes to think beyond the square (of the 'known' vs or complementary to the 'unknown').

Just maybe, what currently for some may be dismissed as not feasible as true science or within the bounds of current teachings, may one day be a part of natures messages which is like the unopened letter from that person whose mail you didn't want to read in the past.

Thanks for lurking Petros and commenting wink

Cheers, daffy Duck.

Good morning folks...it's stats time smile

Australia in the last 30 days on the earth tremor/EQ front looks like this (I feel there have been a couple of tremors in South Australia which haven't shown up on Geoscience yet)
Australia - Geoscience tremor register

Alaska

Japan

New Zealand

British Isles

Canada (last 30 days)

Costa Rica (last 30 days)

Latest EQ's in Europe

Latest EQ's in Asia

Iceland (whole country in the last 48 hours)

Intermountain West - USA - last 24 hrs to be updated

Africa (includes records for Spain/Canary Islands)

EarthquakeReport.com has a list of regions/countries here, where you can click on a country/region to find out more about recent earthquakes for that particular region. Great site.

There a many tremors, on the worldwide front, which don't show up on the Global Incidents Map

Cheers for the moment, Duck.

Cheers Jilly wink

The following article is relevant to this thread and the volcano thread -
"Mega-quakes caused volcanoes to sink: research"

Here's another article (up)dated 25/5/11 -
"Japan Earthquake Shifted Coastline Maximum Of 8 Feet, Scientists Say " - Huffington Post

Here's another relative to the Japan quake in 2011 -
"Earthquake in Japan causes Edwards Aquifer to contract, expand" (not sure if I have already posted this one)

For now, Duck.

I thought I would add some 'visuals', being a YouTube video from the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), which shows what the earth looks like without water in the oceans and highlights the trenches of the ocean floor. There is also a notation of where the Titanic is resting.



Cheers, Duck.

I think that near Arkaroola and Hamley Bridge in South Australia may have both just had an M2+...not sure till Geoscience confirms such. It may have been one tremor registering strongly on both seismographs, but there was almost 10 minutes between both registers.

Just another quick note - near Eton in Queensland (near the coast - on land) has had an M3 at 143kms deep (the depth is very curious, as 'usually' Oz's quakes register on an average of between 0 and 10 kms deep. This occurred about an hour ago.
see here on Geoscience
So far. Qld and NSW are the latest to be recorded on Geo's website.

Ummm...just went to have another look at QLD's tremor today....and now I can't find it on Geoscience????
But...interestingly it is still on the Global Incident Map
Is there a ghost in the system; an error or another ghost with a premonitory ability???
Curious.
Cheers, dumbfounded Duck.

Couldn't edit the above post...but I did find some info on this tremor on "Whitsundays New (dot.com)" HERE with reports of movements from some locals and a seismograph readout....

Ok folks..finally on the strange Eton M3, which registered on the Charters Towers seismograph, here is another article (news report) on what Geoscience now thinks it may have been -
Eton's M3 explanation? (ABC News)

Another wee note on one of my favourite regions of the world - Yellowstone.
This park has been almost continuously experiencing small tremors, with the largest one being M3.1.

If you watch the live webcam - HERE - you could be forgiven if you may feel a bit 'sea-sick' sometimes with the rolling and shaking of the camera.

Here is the list of tremors Yellowstone is experiencing - HERE

And HERE is a map of the general region with various seismographs you can click on to see what's moving there. YMR Madison River is appearing to be the most active seismo in the region near Yellowstone.

Great that you picked that & thanks for the links - have been noticing the tremors around Yellowstone over the last few days on a great earthquake app on my phone - was there a few years ago, amazing place.

wink Bello Boy.

I found a few very interesting articles on Yellowstone EQ swarms. The one I'll link here is "Repeating earthquakes suggest volcanic and tectonic origins of Yellowstone seismic swarms" . Click on the diagrams for a larger view of them - interesting. There are also heaps of other links to click on in this article/info for other clusters of info and websites.

I have been popping in on the earthquake updates and noticing a few EQ's going off dotted down the western ROF and elsewhere. I feel there could be more to come - maybe Taiwan, PNG and Japan. Maybe too, south of Java, Bali and Pedang (NW of top of OZ).
For some reason Islamabad is sticking with me atm....

For now, Duck

a solid 6.1 quake off Sumatra, Indonesia. My brother is based at a surf resort near by and am waiting to hear from him.

Thought for others who may be worried for friends and/or relatives is an ever present awareness of mine whenever I discuss EQ's. I too have had friends caught up in situations where problematic EQ's have occurred and when getting in touch with them is difficult to begin with.
The Australian Embassy in Indonesia has an international freecall number on their website here- near the bottom of this page
Sometimes when larger EQ's occur, communications systems for the people can be problematic initially.
Best wishes to you Ms Milo and I feel and hope you will be speaking to your brother very soon. xo

A short note for the moment...
The EQ's in Uganda, to the east of DR Congo and close to the border of Tanzania is exactly where I felt there was going to be some sizable movements for Africa. There will and have been aftershocks associated with this movement.

Also, I am still trying to learn (through pm's) if Ms Milo has managed to get in contact with her brother in Indonesia (after the EQ's there)...hopefully she has been successful...

For the moment,
Duck.

EQ clouds?? Currently there is a rather large stretch of these (maybe) types of clouds from just NE of Port Augusta - to the Vic border to the east and down the border with Vic/SA. In other words, the SE corner and into Victoria SW.
If you watch them on a moving sat pic, the clearings between the cloud 'ribs' is somewhat stationary....
Here's the EQ cloud idea in visual experimental mode for the moment.
A Chinese scientist believes that these sort of clouds may indicate future tremors from 'now' and for (?) the next couple of months....we'll see...
I have been getting a feeling anyway, that SA will continue to experience small tremors - I feel that this region is somewhat unsettled.

I've just been registering the same movements as this seismo
