Wisconsin Booms Explained???
A minor earthquake occurred this week near the eastern Wisconsin city where researchers have been investigating a series of unexplained booming sounds, federal geologists said Thursday.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the 1.5-magnitude earthquake struck Tuesday just after midnight in Clintonville, a town of about 4,600 people about 40 miles west of Green Bay.
Geophysicist Paul Caruso told The Associated Press that loud booming noises have been known to accompany earthquakes. It's possible the mysterious sounds that town officials have been investigating are linked to the quake, he said.

Earthquakes can generate seismic energy that moves through rock at thousands of miles per hour, producing a sonic boom when the waves come to the surface, Caruso said.
"To be honest, I'm skeptical that there'd be a sound report associated with such a small earthquake, but it's possible," he said.




Lisa Kuss- "In other places in the United States, a 1.5 earthquake would not be felt," she said. "But the type of rock Wisconsin has transmits seismic energy very well."

I'd hate to see a moderate EQ in that area, if a minor one can do that.

Sarcasm Intended!!

Re: Wisconsin Booms Explained???
Montello resident here. The boom that was heard in our small town was suspiciously close to our old granite quarry. Residents who I know that live on top of or very near that quarry were the ones who heard the underground boom. "Sounded like pipes breaking" or "underground sonic boom" were a couple of the descriptions. A news report featured on our local affiliate WISC (CBS) [link to www.channel3000.com] showed reports from the school which is built very near (School) and over (baseball diamond) deep veins of the granite.

Re: Wisconsin Booms Explained???
This is the most probable and easy to understand explanation I've read.

From Geo-Geek:

Throughout much of the central United States, younger sedimentary rocks conceal the craton. However, in Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota and several other states it is well exposed. Likewise, micro-quakes such as the ones reported in WI are common place along the craton.

When the WI Geologist states he has run out of ways to say "I Don't Know." That is because this part of WI is one of the geologic areas which has a relatively minor layer of sedimentary materials distributed over the craton granite which fractures due to any number of natural geophysical processes and reasons. Thus when these processes happens, noises and ground vibrations related to those process are heard and felt as there is not a large, heavy distribution of sedimentary materials to absorb those sound waves and vibrations.

Whenever there is a shift in sedimentary distribution, underground water table, or any of the hundreds of other localized natural geophysical phenomena which causes craton granite to fracture: The pops/booms/noises are not normally heard or felt as frequently in other areas of the craton due to the far larger and thicker layers of sedimentary materials covering it in those other geographic regions. These same sedimentary materials act as an acoustic cushion which absorbs/silences the sounds/vibrations much like a typical household pillow does when you scream into it.

This is a common geologic phenomenon and happens far more often than the general public thinks or realizes.

A minor earthquake occurred this week near the eastern Wisconsin city where researchers have been investigating a series of unexplained booming sounds, federal geologists said Thursday.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the 1.5-magnitude earthquake struck Tuesday just after midnight in Clintonville, a town of about 4,600 people about 40 miles west of Green Bay.
Geophysicist Paul Caruso told The Associated Press that loud booming noises have been known to accompany earthquakes. It's possible the mysterious sounds that town officials have been investigating are linked to the quake, he said.

If they weren't trying to cover some government "Black Ops" project up....we would have legit answers already.
