Sea-floor spreading rates: Are we seeing signs the process is becoming more active?

September 25, 2011CHILETo the casual observer, they’re just more remote earthquakes in the middle of the ocean, however, on closer examination; four moderate earthquakes have erupted on tectonic plate boundaries where the sea-floor is actively spreading. The earthquakes have occurred in sequence where the rate of spreading is most pronounced to less pronounced, beginning with 2 earthquakes, a 5.6 and 5.0, on the Central East Pacific Rise of the Nazca Plate, a 4.8 magnitude earthquake has occurred to the south on the less active West Chile Rise, and the fourth earthquake, a 4.8 occurred on the least active ridge of them all, the Mauritius-Reunion Region east of Africa. All this activity has occurred in the space of 27 hours. We should watch for additional seismic stress on South America via the Nazca tectonic Plate. –The Extinction Protocol

    I am getting more convinced that a eruption is going to happen at EL Hierro volcano. Given the earthquake activity that is taking place there at the moment. But it hard to know for sure if that eruption is going to happen in few weeks time or in 10 years time.

    The latest earthquake was a ML3.3 in size with the depth of 14 km. See here, http://www.emsc-csem.org/Earthquake/earthquake.php?id=236815#

    An anomalous situation, according to Carmen Romero, volcanologist and professor of geography at the University of La Laguna, but that does not necessarily lead to a rash now. A view shared by Ramon Ortiz, a volcanologist at the CSIC and coordinator of the scientific committee that advises the IGN now on seismic activity in El Hierro. For Ortiz “now there is a probability of about 20% of an eruption to occur.”

      Meneo importante entre Azores y Gibraltar a unos 450 km de la costa portuguesa, de 5.4 segun el IGN y de 4.2 según el EMSC que seguramente se notara en todos los sensores….hacia tiempo que no teniamos algo tan potente por esa zona…
