Sandia Can Pin Point Quakes

3D Earth model developed at Sandia Labs more accurately pinpoints source of earthquakes, explosions

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – During the Cold War, U.S. and international monitoring agencies could spot nuclear tests and focused on measuring their sizes. Today, they’re looking around the globe to pinpoint much smaller explosives tests.

Under the sponsorship of the National Nuclear Security Administration’s Office of Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation R&D, Sandia National Laboratories and Los Alamos National Laboratory have partnered to develop a 3-D model of the Earth’s mantle and crust called SALSA3D, or Sandia-Los Alamos 3D. The purpose of this model is to assist the US Air Force and the international Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) in Vienna, Austria, more accurately locate all types of explosions. . . .

Good. So point it at Bayou Corne.

Sandia Labs is advising GOHSEP about Texas Brine’s collapsed salt dome they made happen. Sandia and NASA and everybody are collecting mountains of data on Lake FUBAR and they won’t share it. Digital Globe could put out their pictures and quit throwing RFIs into the trash too!

  1. Every earthquake that happens is like taking a snapshot inside the earth. Bombs make some of the same waves that quakes do just not all the same. Quakes make very distinctive waves, 4 different kinds. Even the largest underground nuke could not make the same waves as a quake, unless it set one off, but you would be able to see that. I believe that a lot of the seismic wave data is being manipulated to keep anyone from making a clearer picture of what’s going on down below and being able to place blame with facts.
