Tried to post on this several days ago AND was Banned!
I'm a 'paying' member, too.

They were 'ordered to CLEAN-UP this site years ago.
Has decaying-leaking storage containers.

Saddleback mtn is near but have seen nothing that appears to be a Caldera like Yellowstone.
Anyone know???

Re: **Any Geologists here today? Harmonic Tremors near Hanford Nuclear Site?**
This sort of very small tremor has been measured periodically at the Hanford site since at least 1970. They may well go back much earlier than that but the seismographs with enough sensitivity to measure such a small quake in such a limited area were not available earlier.

I would not be terribly excited.
-------------------

HANFORD -- About 300 small earthquakes have been detected at southern Hanford since Jan. 4 and the intensity has increased over the last week, said Alan Rohay, a seismologist at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.

The largest was a magnitude 2.9 earthquake measured on Feb. 22, he said.

The swarm of quakes continued Wednesday, with the latest one at 2:19 p.m. a magnitude 0.4 earthquake.

There have been no reports of people feeling the earthquakes. But if someone had been within a mile of the fault during the quakes that approached magnitude 3.0, the person might have been able to feel them, Rohay said.

The quakes are occurring about eight miles north of Richland just west of the Columbia River about halfway between Hanford's 300 Area and Energy Northwest. The closest landmark is Wooded Island in the Columbia River, which is just north and east of the fault.

It's an area that has produced small quakes before, with similar swarms recorded in 1970, 1975 and 1988. In addition, smaller numbers of quakes -- 10 or 20 -- are recorded there every few years, Rohay said.

Monitoring for small quakes was not done for many years before 1970, so there's no telling how long the swarms have been occurring.

When the swarms occur, they usually tend to build up gradually and then gradually die off. Consequently, there's no telling if the earthquakes will continue to build or start to die off, Rohay said.

The quakes do not pose a risk to Hanford cleanup now, but if the national lab starts measuring quakes of a magnitude 4.0 -- which can cause moderate damage -- it will notify Hanford officials, he said. That's not expected to happen.

The fault is likely about 300 by 300 feet and less than a mile deep, Rohay said. Because of the thickness of the basalt rock layer at that depth, there's a limit to the magnitude of the quakes the fault produces, he said.

Bigger quakes would be more likely to result from faults that would be about six miles down where there is more crystalline rock such as granite.

The quakes near Wooded Island occur when basalt under stress reaches the breaking point and cracks. As one crack occurs, that shifts stress to adjoining rock that may also crack, creating a sort of chain reaction, Rohay said.

The Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory operates a network of seismograph stations through Eastern Washington mostly to provide information about the Hanford nuclear reservation.

Hanford produced plutonium for the nation's nuclear weapons program and was left contaminated with radioactive and hazardous chemical waste.

"We monitor the pattern of small earthquakes and use it to estimate how frequently larger earthquakes may occur," Rohay said.

The swarms this year near Wooded Island will add to the accumulated knowledge of the last 40 years, but it's just one element of observing the pattern of earthquakes in the area, he said.

Instrumentation and analysis have advanced since the program's early years, which will allow researchers to learn more about the swarms than they could about those recorded in the '70s.

Although Hanford has not been affected by the swarm of earthquakes, they have been noted at the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory at Hanford. It uses highly sensitive equipment to detect movement caused by gravitational waves from space.

It is also next to the Yakima Military Res.
Training Range. I noticed a few alluded to
this activity in response to other posts,
but I was banned (for no apparent reason) and
could not discuss this.
There must be over 100 eqs there now but I
could include only a few examples.

Please take link and CHECK IT OUT.
This is UNprecedented.
If it is military practice (bombing) how/why
can it be nearly atop a Nuclear Facility??

As a matter of fact, I used to work at the Hanford facility and lived downwind of it for 29 years.

Read the piece i posted. Clearly you have no idea of the size of the Hanford facility or how minor these tremors are, and who, aside from you, mentioned anything about a fire connected with this shaking?

Contamination no doubt.

my father was a contractor at Hanford for several
years. died of stomach cancer. as did many of his crew

Since the apple does not fall far from the tree, I can only assume he had his head up his ass just like his kid. That explains the cancer. Pull your head out of your ass and the same fate may not befall you. But that would probably take a team of horses to accomplish when you know how hard it is jammed up there.

How do you explain the cancer deaths in people who have never been around a nuke facility.

Leaving was easy. better job offer, something that will never happen to you. After all, one burger flipper is just like another.

Guess you didn't read the earlier quote. Not surprising, your lips get tired if you read too much:

An harmonic tremor - in the article it says since january - is movement of magma.
