Stunning evidence of a Caldera volcano in Arkansas! Must read!
I am not convinced that all of these recent earthquakes in Arkansas and Oklahoma are from fracking. While studying the geology of the region I noticed something interesting. There is a pattern starting to form suggesting that the recent earthquakes are a result of increasing volcanic activity. You are probably thinking, if there were a volcano in Arkansas we would know about it. Although unproven and highly speculative, the following information shows evidence of active volcanism in the state of arkansas. I plotted all of the evidence I found on google maps and may have found the reason for the recent rise in seismic activity. The map is at the bottom of the post.


First and foremost I would like to point out The hot springs National park south of little rock

[link to www.nature.nps.gov]
the hot springs are located above the western edge of a large pluton (an igneous intrusion) with an upper surface about 4,000 feet below land surface that extends eastward from an igneous outcrop near Magnet Cove (fig. 1). Bergfelder suggests that the meteoric water percolates through a fracture zone (location unspecified) associated with the margin of the pluton and then (because the heat source is unknown) either takes in heat from the pluton, percolates below the pluton to depths of about 8,000 to 12,500 feet and takes in heat, or percolates below the pluton to a lesser depth and takes in heat from underlying magma. The Bigfork Chert and the Arkansas Novaculite outcrop areas, which may serve as recharge areas, primarily lie north and northeast of the hot springs (Bedinger and others, 1979).
This area is teeming with evidence of volcanic activity. one example is called Magnet cove.It is consisted only of Igneous rocks which can only be formed by volcanic activity.
Cove. [link to www.rockhoundingar.com]

"Magnet Cove is a 100-million-year old igneous intrusion (mass of igneous rock) of some rare and unusual rock types - all derived from a melt that was originally a CO2-rich basaltic liquid in the earth's upper mantle. The intrusion's piercing style resulted in a steep, near vertical contact with the country host rock, Paleozoic shales and novaculite. It is likely that the intrusion never reached the surface. Only one geologist in the 1930's described anything like a vent. It is probable that what he described, though volcaniclastic in appearance, was a steep-walled breccia pipe or explosion zone as has been noted in the smaller pipe at Potash Sulphur Springs." Magnet cove is a type ring complex, or ring dike, found commonly at the center of a volcano. [link to en.wikipedia.org] [link to en.wikipedia.org]
Next, there is Potash sulphur springs which also contains uranium. [link to vulcan.wr.usgs.gov]
"Arkansas's Uranium:1
In Arkansas, several uranium anomalies were discovered during the 1950s.The Potash Sulphur Springs igneous intrusion in Garland County is probably the best known and perhaps the first site where uranium was discovered in Arkansas."
Novaculite is also found in the Hot Springs area."Novaculite is the rarest and finest abrasive stone in existence". This mineral is only found in two places in the world, Arkansas and in the Marathon Uplift in west texas. [link to en.wikipedia.org] [link to www.danswhetstone.com] [link to en.wikipedia.org]

Finally the strangest place in this volcanic area is called "Hells half acre". It is a small area of land in the middle of forest where nothing can grow and animals, even hunting dogs will avoid. Apparently it is believed by some people that "the devil lives down there" [link to www.hsnp.com] Picture: [link to commondatastorage.googleapis.com] Notice that the trees surrounding the area are all dead. This suggests that some kind of activity is producing something very toxic.

More evidence of a volcano lies in the northeast corner of the state that is directly connected to the New Madrid fault called Crowley's Ridge.
The ridge is primarily composed of sediment as loess. It contrasts greatly with the flat table land around it and with the black soil that makes up the delta. It varies from half a mile to 12 miles (19 km) wide and reaches an elevation of 550 feet (170 m) near its northern extremity. There is evidence that the area's elevation has increased over the years, suggesting that uplift took place and is still taking place. This alternative explanation posits a link between the ridge and the nearby New Madrid Seismic Zone."[1] [link to en.wikipedia.org]
Crowleys ridge map: [link to library.byways.org]

Since there is evidence that this area is still rising in elevation, it may be the ridge to the caldera.
[link to en.wikipedia.org] "If the magma is rich in silica, the caldera is often filled in with ignimbrite, tuff, rhyolite, and other igneous rocks. Silica-rich magma does have a high viscosity, and therefore does not flow easily like basalt. As a result, gases tend to become trapped at high pressure within the magma. When the magma approaches the surface of the Earth, the rapid off-loading of overlying material causes the trapped gases to decompress rapidly, thus triggering explosive destruction of the magma and spreading volcanic ash over wide areas. There is a type of lava in explosive calderas called A'a. Further lava flows may be erupted. If volcanic activity continues the centre of the caldera may be uplifted in the form of a resurgent dome". Arkansas ranks first in production silica, producing one half of the worlds supply. [link to www.arkansas.com]

This site from USGS states that The Arkansas delta sloped west toward the mississippi river and south toward the Gulf of Mexico at a rate of 0.5 feet per mile. [link to pubs.usgs.gov]
"The land surface generally slopes toward the Mississippi River from both the eastern and western sides of the Study Unit and to the south toward the Gulf of Mexico."
So far facts show that we have a ridge, a dome-like valley sloping east, west and south, and the most silica in the world, Not to mention much of Arkansas is in a Rift valley. All of this points to the area being an explosive Caldera.
This is Reelfoot rift. [link to upload.wikimedia.org]
To tie is all together I plotted all of the recent earthquakes in Arkansas and Oklahoma along with certain hot spots in the state and found a disturbing pattern.

[link to maps.google.com]
Notice that even though the quake in Guy, Ar, it lines up directly with the earthquakes in Norman, Oklahoma through an area known as the Arkansas River Valley.


And to conclude, we may be fucked...Or not. Enjoy! abomb

I am normally a skeptic but i must say this is a very interesting and well thought out theory. I agree that is rare to find "hot springs" anywhere in the world that are not associated with some sort of volcanism....Iceland, Yellowstone, Africa, etc.

Keep up the good work!

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

The rough diamond as originally discovered weighed 40.23 carats (8.046 g). It was faceted twice by Schenck & Van Haelen of New York, a company which specialized in Arkansas diamonds and had handled over 14,000 of them. The company described those diamonds as being so hard that they could only be cut using powder of other Arkansas diamonds.

Diamond is the hardest natural material on earth. This is not a normal diamond if only powder from an arkansas diamond can be used to cut it. wtf

I mentioned this on the Arkansas eq thread but I live about 20 miles maybe from hot springs Arkansas and I mention that I passes what is locally known as a " blue hole" daily. Dispit being in a bit of a drought in the area in the past week the water level in this " blue hole" has risen a noticeable amount. I am always at near by lakes and just last Saturday went fishing, all nieghboring lakes are at record lows. I have had an extra eye on this " blue hole" and its water level seems to be rising still, it is almost to the edge of the bank and normally sit a foot or a little more below.

Yes I'd love to but posting them from my Droid would be the issue. I live in no internet land and it sucks I just have my cell atm. Also, there are a lot of cracks and holes along the road beside this blue hole...might just be typical for Arkansas though. Great post op.
