Not to be a dick, but what is the significance of this?

This happening ten years ago only tells me it happens, just not often. Otherwise, we are still here. Ten years ago the world did not suffer a cataclysm or total destruction.

Strange days indeed, but this appears to be something that happens regularly, but in large intervals.

I will say this though, isn't that solar maximums happen on a ten year interval? This would support the theory quakes are often related to solar activity banging into the magnetosphere.

Something does appear to be agitating the sun more than normal. I imagine it is the "fluff".

The "fluff" is the real danger right now. Nibiru and alien contact are all a cover story for it IMO. That is not to say I do not see Nibiru's existence being possible, but it can only hide from the bulk of astronomers not on the government dole for so long. Basically, Nibiru isn't near....well at least not yet. Whereas the fluff is confirmed.

In addition, the fluff could be a cover story too, but hope an pray it isn't. My theory on the fluff being a cover story is that it would only be a cover story for the death of the sun. There is no coming back from that. We are not advanced enough yet to just pick up and move to another solar system.

Sorry for my ignorance, is this a common place for quakes?

You stated VERY rare.

You do realise that the USGS only shows earthquakes 4.5> outside of the U.S?

You do realise that seismometers were only situated in the Ross Sea in 1999/2000? so any 'recorded' events are limited before that time.

So although the USGS only show quakes of 4.5> it doesn't mean they are not happening!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 21120973


I agree with you, USGS do only show EQs above 4.5 outside of the US....

However, how many websites are out there dedicated to EQs and seismic activities? How many Universities study, write and show their data regarding EQs?? There is loads.....

So, doing a simple search on Google should of brought up at least 1 other quake from all them websites out there regarding Ross Sea. Why can't I find any other quakes listed WHATSOEVER for Ross Sea??

You say seismometers were situated in Ross Sea in 1999/2000, that's approx 12 years ago, where is the 12 years of earthquake data for that specific area?? If it wasn't a rare event and there not hiding data from us, surely there would more data then?? There is nothing, not even a tiny quake listed anywhere of say a 1.1 mag....

They were temporary seismometers for that timeframe, I do not know what instruments are used there now.

There are quakes, it is an uninhabited area of the world don't forget so there isn't population reports and anyone monitoring 24/7 or checking/servicing instruments like there would be in a populated area.

Here is a report from the temporary equipment they put out there, like I said, seismicity isn't rare there.

It is not rare just because you get one every ten years, it happens, even in my area we have a quake probably once every ten years.

The quake was near 200 MILES from the Ross Ice Shelf.

It was a mere 5.1m quake.


Glacial quakes happen a couple of times a day, some can give as much energy out as a 7 mag on the scale, do you see anything come of them?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 21122889


But, there's also these to think about:

Earthquakes of Antarctica - John Seach

Antarctica is mostly earthquake free.
Only a few earthquakes greater than magnitude 4 have been recorded on the continent.

Causes of Antarctic earthquakes are, post glacial rebound, fracturing of the ice sheet, calving of icebergs from the Ross Ice Shelf, and volcanic activity.
Will global warming and ice cap melting lead to more earthquakes in Antarctica?

Read the report I gave a post above from the scientists who actually situated the temp seismometers.

Quakes happen there, they are not unusual, seismicity isn't rare there at all.

wasn't it the ross ice shelf at the beginning of "the day after tomorrow" that breaks apart?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19900897


Yep, your right....

In The Day After Tomorrow, the disaster threat du jour is Global Warming (tm). Dennis Quaid plays Jack Hall, the Chicken Little scientist who says that the sky is falling and who, of course, nobody listens to. After watching the Ross Ice Shelf crack and start to fall into the sea, he attends a climatology conference in New Delhi (experiencing a snowstorm) to say that ice melt from the polar ice caps may be flooding the North Atlantic with fresh water, potentially stopping the flow of the Gulf Stream. Ironic though it may sound, Global Warming could cause a new Ice Age.

Actually it was the Larsen B iceshelf that broke off in the film, and actually broke off in reality Jan/Mar of 2002, NOT the Ross Shelf.
Larsen B was on the penninsula of Antarctica, nowhere near the Ross Sea/quake, as a matter of fact they are 2.2k miles away from each other.
