San Andreas Rumblings Mystify Scientists

"One time, the rumbling went on for a day and a half and then stopped, he said. Then, two weeks later, there was a strong earthquake at Parkfield, which got researchers wondering if there was any connection..."

San Andreas Rumblings Mystify Scientists

April 20, 2006 — "Mysterious rumblings detected inside and above the San Andreas Fault at Parkfield, Calif., have seismologists scrambling for answers, some of which might point to a new way to forecast earthquakes.

The unexplained rumblings are known by various names to seismologists, including "silent earthquakes," "slow slip events," "Episodic Tremor and Slip," or "non-volcanic tremors."

They don't jolt like earthquakes and seem to resemble the chaotic vibrations produced by a volcano's plumbing system, except that there's no live volcano anywhere near Parkfield.

"If you could listen to it, it'd be more like a tone, not a bang like an earthquake," said Paul Segall, a "silent earthquake" researcher at Stanford University. "It's a low-frequency vibration in the ground."


"They just rumble for a while and stop, then rumble for a while and stop," said seismologist Robert Nadeau of the University of California at Berkeley.

Some of the events, which appear to originate far deeper than most quakes occurs, can last 30 minutes and contain momentary quake-like spikes, but only weakly, he said. One time, the rumbling went on for a day and a half and then stopped, he said. Then, two weeks later, there was a strong earthquake at Parkfield, which got researchers wondering if there was any connection..."

As mystic Maria Esperanza said, " the Earth's core is not balanced".

Obviously a large quantity of magma is shifting, and we could see mega-earthquakes and Supervolcanoes going off.
