Seismic Activity at Lake FUBAR

This could be added to the post below Night and Day . . . but these booms today are extra big.


Here is the view from Quake Watch on LA18



It is even more dramatic when you realize LA18’s helicorder is set on tiny settings. heli_button

YellowStn_Poster  There are strange west-coast events (volcano, L.A. quake) that are on the Yellowstone blog today.
There isn’t a direct connection to Yellowstone in the stories but maybe it it is connected somehow and it will come out later. And the Mich. quake this week is very out of the ordinary. It is mentioned in comments in the next post
(Tues. News).

Check the Yellowstone blog for updates on these events.




Thurs. News, Boone Dam Snow Melt Fears < UPDATED

See next post for link to map of Lake FUBAR and helicorder link.  Everything still on active mode there.
DOWNarrowSM LA14 showed a big 2 hour long disruption just after 1 a.m. and another 2 hour long session just after 3 a.m..

This comment at Zero Hedge says they wonder what will happen to Boone Dam when all this snow melt comes down the river.

“TVA drew Boone down to below winter pool levels to take some pressure off of the sinkhole/mud geysers, so it only has to hold back something like a 145 ft. wall of water. Which is fine – until the snow pack in the mountains melts in a couple of weeks. Then you have those two rivers with fifteen miles of water in them filling up REALLY fast. The river below the Boone dam will be swollen, too. I don’t think they can just open the floodgates on Boone all the way. So Boone fills up, water migration that caused the sinkholes/mud geysers gets worse, and all of a sudden you have Boone tsunami.” . . . (more)

Lots of Grumbling at Lake FUBAR Wed. – and a BIG THUMP Thurs. at 5:04 A.M.



It looks pretty calm at Lake FUBAR. The grumbles died down then a giant THUMP at 5:04 a.m.. Shows here at LA12


Oddly, it shows BIGGER on the surface of LA10 than at the bottom borehole.


Lots of rain due all week at Bayou Cornestarting Friday.

“Scientists have calculated that this sun storm will alter Earth’s magnetic field on August 2nd. The storm cloud should create auroras in the northern sky.”

Crosstex had a merger and has a new name – since Jan. – EnLink Midstream is their new name.
Crosstex Energy, Devon Energy to be known as EnLink Midstream

“. . . The deal will combine Crosstex with the midstream assets of Devon, an independent oil and gas driller based in Oklahoma City. The new company will control more than 6,400 miles of pipeline, serving fields including the Barnett Shale and Eagle Ford, the companies said in October. “

We missed this July 8 item – ‘Explosive’ earthquakes may be the cause of mysterious Bayou Corne sinkhole

“. . . Now, researchers are suggesting that surges of gas-charged fluids may have generated an ‘explosive’ quake that could have played a role in the sinkhole’s formation.”

Pay-per-view: Moment Tensor Inversion of Seismic Events Associated with the Sinkhole at Napoleonville Salt Dome, Louisiana

Got the chills? Here’s some  HOT AIR from Texas Brine!

Not related to the salt dome collapse, but of interest for methane topic –
“We are sniffing methane” – vast methane plumes discovered escaping from the seafloor of Arctic ocean

” . . . Chief scientist Örjan Gustafsson from Stockholm University speculates in his latest blog entry that the leaking methane from the seafloor of the continental slope may have its origins in collapsing “methane hydrates,” clusters of methane trapped in frozen water due to high pressure and low temperature.”
