    The Pacific plate must be under a lot of stress, or getting very buoyant! Almost all earthquakes today were either on, or very near its boundaries. Not sure about the Japan quake but it is still very near the Pacific plate.

    Current volcanic Canary Islands (AVCAN)
    Teleseísmo captured by almost all the stations Canary, interestingly, the station of El Hierro, seems almost immune to the teleseísmos. There are only a reflection of him in the very low frequencies. CHIE in El Hierro, is a “short period” as the NACC in las Cañadas del Teide, that records only “high frequency” signals…. why not so register as soon as it CHIE and does NACC? The powerful tremor Hierro hides almost all of the signal? (JR) http://www.IGN.es/IGN/layoutInvolcaSenalesAyerHoy.do#

    Look at this, interesting proportionality between the P & S – waves. That slip fault plane was something else in size. If it hadn’t been a slo-mo quake it would have been a competitor to the Japanese quake for this years biggest counted in energy.

    It seems,like these Quakes,are moving around the Pacific Plate,counter clockwise! I Hope! I’m wrong,but in the next couple days,their should be a major Earthquake,somewhare on the eastern side of the Pasific Plate?? Maybe west coast of Mexico,or Calif.,I’m no expert,by far,so I HOPE,I’m WRONG!!!!!

    the Tsunami might not happen but there will be an earthquake wave flowing up and down that fault hitting weak spots which may in the following months cause new earthquakes and the possibility of real tsunami conditions – that hotspsot has been heating up quite a lot recently :/

    It’s difficult to predict what happens next. Only as on onlooker over events during the last year, all activity in magma, and earthquakes, and very oddly the Sun, are all locked into CYCLE. It’s like a brief period of crazy activity, then, a lull.
    Then, Whoof, another period of unexpected activity.
    But the periods between quite, and active, are getting shorter.
    I wish there were more scientists like João Magueijo about. Outside of Alvins work, he gets my attention every time. He questions everything.!!
    A bit like everyone who blogs here.!!

    JustMeinTMusings, The Bible foretold all that’s taking place. Jesus warned these things would take place preceding His return. The Bible also warns of scoffers in the Last Days. We are leaving here soon praise God!
