Mount Rainier Swarm Report
Largest Event: Magnitude 2.3, NE of Mt Rainier, WA
Sunday September 20, 2009 at 09:45:27.80 AM (PDT)
Magnitude 2.3
Time Sunday September 20, 2009 at 16:45:27.80 Z (UTC)
Sunday September 20, 2009 at 09:45:27.80 AM (PDT)
Distance from 1.1 km NE of Mt Rainier, WA
39.4 km E of Eatonville, WA
93.8 km SSE of Seattle, WA (1st & Yesler)

Coordinates 46.859 deg N
121.749 deg W
Depth 3 km
Quality excellent (AA)
Note: 1 km = 0.621 mile or 1 mile = 1.61 km



Executive Summary: A swarm of small earthquakes started on the morning of September 20, 2009, at about 09:00 PDT beneath Mount Rainier. To date, the swarm has consisted of hundreds of earthquakes, most occurring on Sept. 20. Most locate at a depth of 2-3 km (1-2 miles) beneath the northeast flank of the volcanic edifice, centered ~1 km (0.5 miles) northeast of the summit. The largest event was a M 2.3 on Sept. 20. As of Sept. 23 swarm events continue, but at a greatly reduced rate since early on September 22. Seismic swarms are concentrations of earthquakes that typically are not initiated with a mainshock, and are common features at volcanoes. The vast majority of volcanic swarms are not associated with eruptive activity. Rainier itself has had several such swarms: in the past 7 years there have been similar days-long swarms in 2002, 2004, and 2007, two of which (2002 and 2004 )included M 3.2 earthquakes. The Sept. 20 swarm has produced the largest number of events of any swarm at Rainier since seismic monitoring began over two decades ago, so we will continue to closely monitor seismicity and other geophysical parameters at Rainier.


View Seismograms - View web-based seismograms by station and date.
Example Waveforms - Many of the earthquakes within this swarm consisted of repeating earthquakes. Repeating earthquakes are common within swarms. Two of the most prominent repeating earthquake sequences are shown in the figure here. Each seismogram in this figure is actually a stack, or average, of many events. Small changes in the stacks are caused by small changes in the location or mechanism of the earthquakes. The orange boxes shows the p-wave arrival and the blue boxes show the s-wave arrival. The dates shown on the plot reflect the time of the first earthquake in the stack. The first repeating earthquake sequence, consisting of 715 events, was dominant during the beginning of the swarm. The second repeating earthquake sequence, consisting of 86 events, was dominant during the later stages of the swarm.

A detailed list of all earthquakes (M > 1.0) that occurred in the two years prior to the mainshock in the same area.

Plots of earthquakes occuring the last decade including plots of time vs. depth, map view and cross-section.

Relocated earthquakes Map View (2003-2009) Shown here is a map view of earthquake locations using a 3-dimensional velocity model instead of the standard 1-dimensional velocity model. Yellow circles are earthquakes between 2003 and Sept. 19, 2009. Pink circles are earthquakes that are part of this swarm (Sept. 20-Sept.22, 2009). White lines are elevation contours and green triangles are seismic stations. Relocations from Seth Moran, Cascade Volcano Observatory.

Relocated earthquakes Cross Section (2003-2009) Shown here is a cross-section looking east of earthquake locations using a 3-dimensional velocity model instead of the standard 1-dimensional velocity model. Yellow circles are earthquakes between 2003 and Sept. 19, 2009. Pink circles are earthquakes that are part of this swarm (Sept. 20-Sept.22, 2009). Green triangles are seismic stations. Units on the y-axis are kilometers below sea-level. Units on the x-axis are in kilometers from the left-hand axis. Relocations from Seth Moran, Cascade Volcano Observatory.

A plot showing the event rate of the automatically determined earthquakes throughout the swarm. If an earthquake is detected on stations RCS, RCM and STAR, than an event is declared and counted on this plot. Most, if not all of the background activity consists of earthquakes associated with the movement of glaciers.(Updated periodically)

A plot showing the b-value of the automatically determined earthquakes throughout the swarm. B value is a measure of the relative number of small earthquakes to large earthquakes. In a regular tectonic setting, each unit increase in the magnitude scale results in a 10-fold decrease in occurence. Tectonic seismicity usually has a b-value of 1, meaning that there are 10 times as many M1 earthquakes as M2 earthquakes, and 10 times as many M2 earthquakes as M3 earthquakes. Volcanic seismicity normally has a b-value in excess of 1.

Conceptual model of Mount Rainier. This plot shows shows our interpretation of the seismicity under Mount Rainier. Circles represent earthquakes and arrows represent the paths of fluid flow. Most events, including those in this swarm have occurred at a depth near sea level. Hydrothermal fluids circulating above a zone of partially melted rock are most likely the cause of the seismicity near this depth. Figure from Seth Moran, Cascade Volcano Observatory.

Automatically updated plots - The following information will be updated as new events occur. Included are:


An Earthquake Catalog listing the location and magnitude of all earthquakes we have located in the epicentral region (including the mainshock and any aftershocks) for the current year.

Detailed Map of the earthquakes in this catalog for the epicentral region.

Plot of locations of last 20 earthquakes.

Time vs. depth plot of earthquakes occurring in the last year

Seismic Activity as a function of time in the epicentral region since the time of the mainshock.
Focal Mechanism - A diagram and table of the P-wave fault plane solution. If sufficient P-wave first motion data are available, a fault plane determination for the earthquake will be available.

I'd be curious to see a historical context for these. Is it common? I know it is for St. Helens (I live close by) but haven't heard for Rainier.

Re: Quake Swarms on MT. Rainier
Interesting. Thanks for the tip Zosime.
"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

If I lived on the old lahars I'd be calling a real estate agent in the morning. I wonder if a Cacadia rupture could trigger the volcanoes to pop as well?

Re: Quake Swarms on MT. Rainier
Mt. Rainer is building huge pressure. Not all volcanoes give much notice of their intent, and this is that type of volcano. In fact even Mt. St. Helens would have naturally done that, but that volcano was stimulated by man's weapons, which is why she showed signs long before her eruption. Such is not the case with Rainer. If this mountain does blow, we will evacuate those that are scheduled for the Ascension Process in that region. This will draw little attention because when this blows, if she does, it will be far beyond that which St Helen's did. The pressure is huge, and it is quite beyond relieving it by our technology.

We hope before I take the Planet into Stasis to have some public announcement of our presence, we are still working out the details, but nothing is written yet in stone on this. We most surely would like a bit of “Teaching” before the process begins, as this will ultimately assist those that awaken to massive change. It will remain in their memory during Stasis.

Your Planet is really gnawing at her teeth in anticipation at this time. Many are becoming sensitive and many around the world are feeling subtle rolling when in a quiet mood. The ground is trembling softly over much of the Planet. We must be about the Father's business. There are other volcanoes preparing large shows also about the Planet. The New Madrid Fault is becoming a bit unstable also deep within it.

This full moon may or may not stimulate major quakes, but the conditions in California are becoming dire. Rather than a couple of large quakes to set up the issues, there have been many many smaller ones, as the whole area is simply loosening up, as best as can be stated simply. It is gently “liquefying “ in the whole Southern California area, from the Southeastern areas across to in particular at this time the San Jacinto Fault zone. Your scientists are perplexed. We have said for some time now the LA basin will go into the sea and it is all just crumbling heavily now.

It will take little to finish off the process. In addition to all the caverns becoming soggy, and material moving down from the Yucca Flats testing ranges, the South San Andreas Fault is also “loosening” up. That area is generally pretty fixed and only experiences large quakes separated by many many years. It is ready to go.

Now, if it goes, before I start the Stasis process, at this point we will probably just go into Stasis. The area will liquefy over a few days at most, and the fear is going to be stupendous. We will evacuate as necessary, while my team prepares the Stasis process. The Spaceships that initiate this are all in place and we have run our tests to make sure it goes in perfection. But it does take a short time to emit the necessary energies.

So I am saying, there is a possibility we will get no chance at prior education, because this process may precede our plans, but then again, it may not. We are heavily, heavily influencing against those that wish to go to war, because no more war is “necessary” nor useful. Many in the Government have been met by our Representatives, some from off the Planet to once again be advised to stop the interference. This is enough tonight, Candace was asking for an update for all of you. We all await and watch what the Mother will do. As a final note, the many clusters of quakes that have occurred offshore of Washington and Oregon, are related to the system of which Mt. Rainer is a part.
