Ya... A 5.x hit locally while I was in the can.A few years ago there was an earthquake centered in Oklahoma that I felt in Omaha. I was sitting on the shitter.
Something is ALWAYS moving.iceland is slightly worrisome. It’s right on two plates...
remember that smaller quakes just relieve the built up stresses. A series of them means something is moving
Yep... the continents are basically splitting down the middle of the Atlantic. South America is rotating and coming up, forcing the Pacific Plate into a northern motion... otherwise the entire Pacific Rim would be a subduction zone.Right, the west coast is fascinating, I have only experienced one earthquake in Michigan in my entire life. My wife spent her high school years in the Valley in LA ... she teaches earth science now ...
She thinks I’m nuts wanting more.... mild ones anyway...
Iceland she says is a divergent boundary / spreading apart ...
To the tune of Adams family;
divergent is dividing, convergence is colliding
Transform is a sliding ... theses are the plate boundaries....(snap -snap) ...
6th grade science aside ... when that one moves it’s pulling apart...
Very cool stuff.
