Carbon Monoxide and the Earthquake in Greece today! (20th April 2016)

The onset of the 3.5R (small event even for Greece) prompted me to examine the local Carbon Monoxide concentration in the area of Greece. As you can see from the map, I placed the small green circle to show where the max CO concentration is today. The location of the epicentre is just below it. This is the second event I checked matching the CO emissions and earthquake epicentres. Although I have not searched extensively the matter, I have not seen any publications by a quick Google search I did, but I have seen plenty of reports on the internet. So people know about it but I guess there has been no statistical correlation yet on it. It is not easy to separate CO near cities from car emissions or factories to CO emanating from the earth faults.  Not possible to see CO bubbling up from deep seas.With caution therefore I would say the use of satellite sensor technology will reveal to us wonders as it does in so many different areas. It would be nice to use precursors with satellites to detect and see where hotspots of earthquake activity may occur before the event. I am sure it is coming!
