'Lost' Tectonic Plate Found Beneath California
A tectonic plate that disappeared under North America millions of years ago still peeks out in central California and Mexico, new research finds.

The Farallon oceanic plate was once nestled between the Pacific and North American plates, which were converging around 200 million years ago at what would become the San Andreas fault along the Pacific coast. This slow geological movement forced the Farallon plate under North America, a process called subduction.

Much of the Farallon plate got pushed down into the mantle, the gooey molten layer below the Earth's crust. Off the coast, parts of the plate fragmented, leaving some remnants at the surface, stuck to the Pacific plate.

Now, new research published Monday (March 18) in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, finds that these pieces of Farallon plate are attached to much larger chunks at the surface. In fact, part of the Baja region of Mexico and part of central California near the Sierra Nevada mountains sit upon slabs of Farallon plate.

This is no suprise. The Mammoth area and all the volcanoes in the Mohave are and were caused by something. My theory was that the front of the Juan de Fuca was under Mammoth. Current science connects it only the the Cascadia Range.

I have personally seen the molten volcanic rock on the left shore of the Laguna Salada (Salton Lake) in Northern Baja California, just about 3-5 miles South of the Mexicali-Tijuana Highway.

Some people go for the thermal waters that come off it...

Re: 'Lost' Tectonic Plate Found Beneath California
Despite many theories, no one had nailed down exactly what caused the Isabella anomaly. Then researchers discovered another anomaly (where the researchers saw a change in seismic wave speed where one wasn't expected) under the Baja Peninsula, directly east of some of the known remains of the Farallon plate. The proximity led Brown University geophysicists Donald Forsyth and Yun Wang (now at the University of Alaska) to suspect they might be related.

[link to news.yahoo.com]

What specifically triggered them to discover this? When did they see a change in seismic waves and what quakes were they monitoring when they happened to see this? Why didn't they notice it before? If it wasn't doing it before, what caused it to do it now?
