Over the past 48 hours, a “progression” of seismic pressure took place across thousands of miles of the West Pacific, heading from Fiji to Japan, and beyond.
See the most current video update here for a fully detailed recap of what occurred:
November 16, 2017
Half of the Pacific plate has moved on a M5.0+ level in less than 48 hours time.
Several M5.0+ earthquakes have occurred spreading from the location of the deep earthquakes near Fiji (seen raised high off the globe for identification purposes), heading across the whole of the West Pacific all the way to Japan / Korea.
There is a greater force at play which is causing these multiple seismic events in succession of one another. Something is pushing over 3,000 miles of the West Pacific on a M5.0+ level over the course of 1-2 days time.
Needless to say the force in question is a powerful one.
The greater force which is involved is coming from BELOW the Pacific plate, from an area called the “Asthenosphere”. If you are not aware of what the Asthenosphere is, follow this link to find out much more information.
Below is a graphic showing the Asthenospheres location in relation to the plate(s) above. Keep in mind the “deep” earthquakes are occurring in this deeper region, which appears to be causing a “lever arm” action on the under side of the plates along the plate boundaries.
The “lever arm” is causing a spreading out of the “seismic pressure” coming up from deep within the mantle (from the core itself).
As the pressure rises from within it itersects the under side of the bottoms of the plates. It is a fact that the plate boundaries / fractures extend from the surface all the way through the plates down to the upper Asthenosphere, therefore the first path of least resistance that the pressure finds are these fractures on the UNDER sides of the plates.
After years of observation , it would appear the pressure follows these cracks on the under side of the plates (the undersides of the plate boundaries) in a path of least resistance on its path upwards, and outwards from the deep earthquake locations.
Summed up, a force is placed on the under sides of the plate boundaries, which have fractures which act like avenues for pressure to follow on a way up. As the pressure travels upwards, and away from the deep events, a leverage action occurs which increases the POWER of the resulting shallower larger earthquake by 1-2 magnitudes.
Thus (for example), a deep M4.5 event is capable of causing a shallow M5.5 to M6.5 in an area adjacent to the original deep earthquake.
The seismic pressure transfer which is currently occurring was forecast to occur four days prior in this weeks earthquake forecast.
See the earthquake forecast video for the West Pacific below which called for a progression of earthquakes to spread from Fiji to Japan, and named the magnitudes down to the point.
