We Hear You Mars: First Ever 'Marsquake' Detected on the Red Planet

The seismic tremor is estimated to be roughly equal to a 2.5 magnitude earthquake.Scientists revealed that they may have detected the first 'Marsquake,' a seismic tremor coming from inside the red planet. The tremor was recorded by NASA’s robotic probe InSight, and it marks the first time a likely seismological tremor has been captured on another planet.

Martian seismology

“InSight’s first readings carry on the science that began with the Apollo missions," said InSight Principal Investigator Bruce Banerdt of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.
"We've been collecting background noise up until now, but this first event officially kicks off a new field: Martian seismology.”
The captured rumble was estimated to be roughly equal to a 2.5 magnitude earthquake. It was recorded on April 6th which was the lander’s 128th Martian day (Sol 128).
The scientists revealed that three other signals, which occurred on 14 March (Sol 105), 10 April (Sol 132) and 11 April (Sol 133), could also have been of seismic origin. These signals, however, were a lot weaker than the one recorded on Sol 128.
The signals were detected by InSight’s French-built seismometer called Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure (SEIS). The meter is sensitive enough to measure a seismic wave just one-half the radius of a hydrogen atom.

First Marsquake

“We've been waiting months for our first marsquake,” said Philippe Lognonné, a Professor at Paris Diderot University and geophysicist at the IPGP Earth physics institute in Paris and the Principal Investigator for SEIS.
“It's so exciting to finally have proof that Mars is still seismically active. We're looking forward to sharing detailed results once we've studied it more and modeled our data.”
Scientists need to study the quake further to have definite details on it, but for now it seems to have come from inside the planet as opposed to something on the surface such as winds. What is known for sure is that Earth is no longer the only planet to be monitored by seismometers.

“The SEIS instrument deployed on Mars at the start of this year is now recording the slightest ground vibrations day and night, be they due to the atmosphere and its winds sweeping the surface or to quakes and meteorite impacts. Mars is thus the third rocky planetary body in the solar system to be studied by seismologists, 130 years after the beginnings of instrumental seismology on Earth and 50 years after the first seismometer deployed by Apollo 11 in July 1969," said Antoine Petit, CEO of CNRS.

Iran is facing the worst locust attack in the past 40 years: Biblical invasion threatens crops and food security

Officials said several swarms of locusts have come from the Arabian peninsula to Iran over the last 10 weeks, some of which have penetrated into farmlands of the province as far as 200 kilometers from the coast.
The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said in February that a locust outbreak in Sudan and Eritrea was spreading rapidly along both sides of the Red Sea to Saudi Arabia and Egypt.The FAO also noted that good rains have allowed generations of locust breeding since October 2018, leading to a substantial increase in locust populations and the formation of highly mobile swarms.

https://www.aparat.com/v/ZiRg2


The UN agency had also highlighted the control measures in Iran after at least one swarm arrived on the southern coast at the end of January.
Adult locust swarms can fly up to 150 km a day with the wind and adult insects can consume roughly their own weight in fresh food per day.
A very small swarm eats as much in one day as about 35,000 people, posing a devastating threat to crops and food security.
The desert locust is potentially the most dangerous of the locust pests because of the ability of swarms to fly rapidly across great distances.
Plagues of desert locusts have threatened agricultural production in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia for centuries. The livelihood of at least one-tenth of the world’s human population can be affected by this voracious insect. In 1961, desert locusts attacked agricultural lands in Iran and damaged nearly 2.5 million hectares of farms across the country. 
Recently, Iran was hit by the largest flood disaster in 15 years, killing at least 80 people so far.
Maybe, next there will be some frogs?

Earthquakes Happen Every 3 Minutes in Southern California, Study Shows

In a new study, researchers from the California Institute of Technology and University of California, San Diego have uncovered nearly two million previously unidentified tiny earthquakes that happened between 2008 and 2017. That translates to roughly 495 earthquakes a day in Southern California, or an earthquake about every three minutes.

An average person walking along the street wouldn't notice these tiny temblors, which range in magnitude between -2.0 and 1.7.

Generally, people feel earthquakes of magnitudes higher than 3.0, according to the US Geological Survey.

Even researchers who study earthquakes had a difficult time detecting these "hidden" earthquakes.

Background noise, such as shaking from automobile traffic or building construction, appears in seismic data and can mask signs of the smaller earthquakes.

To detect these elusive quakes, the scientists used a technique called template matching. From seismic data of already known earthquakes, they identified patterns as to what an earthquake's signal should look like. Using this information, the researchers then scanned records from seismometers to find the tiny earthquakes.

The template matching method has been used in seismology since about 2006, but it was mostly limited to analyzing small data sets for a couple weeks at time.

"The computational burden of using this method is heavy," said Zach Ross, lead researcher on the study. "It requires big computers, which pretty much limited its usage to small chunks of data. When we started on this project, we wanted to apply this on a scale ... significantly larger than anything that's ever been done before."

Scientists now have a lot of data to learn from

The expanded earthquake data will help scientists understand how swarms of earthquakes evolve and previously unknown temblors that precede major earthquakes.

"The reason we're interested in smaller earthquakes is because we don't have enough large quakes on record to look at the long-term evolution of earthquakes and faults," Ross said. "The (smaller earthquakes) start to fill in all the gaps between the larger ones."

Marine Denolle, a seismologist at Harvard University who was not involved in the study, said she is excited about the future studies that this newfound data will generate.

"This is the biggest earthquake catalog ever," Denolle said. "This will help us find where earthquakes come from, and they can highlight new fault systems that we could not see before and reveal new tectonics that we were not aware of before."

“The holy grail of earthquake seismology has always been prediction," Daniel Trugman, a seismologist at Los Alamos National Laboratory who also worked on the study told NPR. "I'm cautiously optimistic that we'll make progress on earthquake prediction.”

6.0R in India

NEW DELHI: A strong 6.1-magnitude earthquake struck India's northeastern state of Arunachal Pradesh early Wednesday, the US Geological Survey said.
The epicenter of the shallow quake was about 40 kilometres (25 miles) southeast of Along, and 180 kilometres southwest of the state capital Itanagar.
It struck at 1:45 am (2015 GMT Tuesday).
Arunachal Pradesh is India's least densely populated state, but is still home to more than 1.2 million people, according to the state government's website.
China's official state news agency Xinhua said the quake was felt in Tibet, which neighbors the Indian state.
New Delhi and Beijing for decades have disputed control of Arunachal Pradesh -- a dispute that remains unresolved.
India considers Arunachal Pradesh one of its northeastern states, while China claims about 90,000 square kilometres (34,750 square miles) of the territory.
Arunachal Pradesh also borders Myanmar and Bhutan.
USGS estimated there was a "low likelihood" of casualties and damage from the quake.
Our coordinates for the stress points in the area are shown below:

6.5R in Samar, Philippines



A strong 6.5R earthquake has just been reported 19km West of Nena, in Philippines. It follows the strong 6.3R reported yesterday. The fact that no aftershocks were reported led me to believe that we had not seen everything yet. Sure this morning we have this 6.5R. The epicenter location is shown in the maps above. The calendar for Philippines, shows this was late, but we can see on 21st and 22nd we have a double peak. Lets hope we have no loss of life or damages. Be Safe Be Good.

6.3R in Luzon, Philippines



A powerful 6.3R earthquake has struck Philippines today. The epicenter was 2km South West of San Fransisco, and 61km from Manila, as shown in the top map.
A Reuters witness said office buildings swayed in the main business district of Makati City in the capital, Manila.
The quake struck at 5.11pm local time, about 60 km north-west of Manila at a depth of 40km. The USGS initially said the magnitude was 6.4 but later downgraded it slightly.
There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage, but some reports are coming.

Some people evacuated their offices in Manila.
The Philippines is on the seismically active Pacific “Ring of Fire”, a horse-shoe shaped band of volcanoes and fault lines circling the edges of the Pacific Ocean.
 The map above shows the predicted stress points for today in the region, and the earthquake epicenter is as predicted by the encircled point. Another great prediction.
The Philippine Calendar for April is shown below, where we can see that the peaks of 21-22nd April are clearly pronounced and therefore expected by this as well. Overall great predictions.

FDL 10th April

It is expected that significant increase of earthquake activity will be with us on 10th April 2019. There are many parameters converging but here is an account of my own analysis for it. On the day the planets geocentrically will be positioned as shown above. The Sun will be opposite Pallas both square Pluto-S Node conjunction. This is highlighted by grey circles above.The Moon and Mars (slower) will be triggering this configuration as shown in red. At the sam time Mercury squre with the Moon is sextilw to the Pluto-S Node conjunction. Worth Noting however the Venus-Neptune conjuction (in green) aspecting also Pluto-S Node. I expect therefore something about 6.5-7.0R on this day if the analysis is correct. The countries suspect of those aspects cane be Philippines, Japan, Solomon Islands, Chile, Panama, Hawai, Afghanistan and Pakitan for example. Be Safe Be Good.

What Is Causing An Increase Of Intensity Of Cosmic Radiation In Earth’s Atmosphere?

Cosmic rays in Earth’s atmosphere are intensifying for the 4th year in a row as the 11-year solar cycle plunges into one of the deepest minima of the Space Age. The finding comes from a campaign of almost weekly high-altitude balloon launches conducted by the students of Earth to Sky Calculus, Dr. Tony Phillips of SpaceWeather reports.
There has been an approximate 13% increase in X-rays and gamma-rays over central California, where the students have launched hundreds of balloons, since March 2015.
The grey points in the graph below are Earth to Sky balloon data. Overlaid on that time series is a record of neutron monitor data from the Sodankyla Geophysical Observatory in Oulu, Finland.
While neutron monitors have long been considered a ‘gold standard’ for monitoring cosmic rays on Earth, the correlation between data collected by Earth to Sky and neutron monitors is impressive, especially considering their wide geographic separation and differing methodologies, Dr. Phillips said. “This shows that our student-built balloons are gathering data of similar quality.”
“Right now, the 11-year solar cycle is plunging into one of the deepest minima of the Space Age,” Phillips said.
“The Sun’s weakening magnetic field and flagging solar wind are not protecting us as usual from deep-space radiation. Earth to Sky balloon launches in multiple countries and US states show that this is a widespread phenomenon.”

Global:FDL- Method, April 2019

Based on our published reseach technique, we here apply it as a systematic predicting tool for determining the dates of earthquakes.
In the following diagram we can see Global Earthquake predictions for April 2019. This means earthquakes of >6R somewhere in the world. No specific location. ....Note that you should also cross check this chart with our LOCAL PREDICTIONS if you wish to home in further on the earthquake location. Furthermore you also must consider the planetary alignment posts we do We do many countries and if there is enough requests we may do others too. 
 
For this period we observe that there is a HIGH* probability to have an earthquake >6R somewhere in the world on 5th, 9-10th, 13th, 19th, 23rd and 29th April 2019  and smaller in other dates as shown below:  (Note the scales are not Richeter nor logarithmic).

 
The probability Scales are as follows:
*SMALL (<40%) MEDIUM (40-60%) and HIGH (>60%)
