The usgs came by my house today and dropped off a permit to give them permission install a nodal Seismograph on my property for 60 days. I live in Alaska btw near anchorage. Any thoughts as to why they would select my property. I’m kinda freaking out. I’d appreciate any real input guys.

There's probably a huge sink hole under your property.

The X-files, season 6, episode 2, ‘Drive.’ Go to putlocker and watch it. A dude (Bryan Cranston of ‘Breaking Bad’ fame) has a USG node in his yard. The government uses it for secret ELF testing ‘for communicating with nuclear subs,’ they say. That’s all I’ve got; hope that helps! Maybe a geologist will be by soon...

Hey OP,

I don't think you have much to worry about. Its very likely that your property gives them a strategic advantage for reading acoustic waves like a poster above stated. You may have noticed yourself that quakes around Alaska have been intensifying as well as getting deeper. The 60 days will give the USGS the info they need to determine which direction the quakes are going in to get an overall idea of plate movement as well as changing volcanism.

Temporary nodes are actually quite common. Also, nodes on private property do not reveal personal information. The only info available is the coordinates of the node and its seismic recordings. Unless you reveal personal information connected to those coordinates, your location should remain anonymous.

Tell them no.
They cannot force you to let them install it.

Or tell them yes, they will give you some inside information at least once a year.

Choice is yours.

If you agree they now have full access to your property whenever they like. Trucks, drones, people.

The 60 days will be extended, of course, due to continued gathering of scientific data.
