Southern Australia is being rattled by hundreds of quakes- and scientists aren’t sure why

September 10, 2013 – AUSTRALIA - Scientists in Victoria are attempting to learn more about the increase in the number of earthquakes in the Gippsland region. Seismologists are describing the region as an earthquake hotspot. There were only 50 earthquakes recorded up until 2009, but since then there have been 700. The activity has been particularly high in the Strzelecki Ranges which lie between the Latrobe Valley and the Gippsland coastline. Locals have been intrigued by the tremors for years. Gary Gibson from the University of Melbourne says the motion in Gippsland is high. “There are other spots that are active for a period of time but they’re active for a geologically short period, maybe 100,000 years or something and they go quiet. And they’ve got no long term evidence of continued motion,” he said. “Whereas the motion in Gippsland here, the rate of earthquake activity we have at the moment is high. The geology suggests that the average over the last few million years is probably even higher.” There are eight seismographs planted in the ground along fault lines meters below the surface around Gippsland to monitor the tremors. They are so sensitive that they can record the vibrations of approaching footsteps. One of them is on Neville Cliff’s beef farm. “We’ve had some good earthquakes come through here. You can hear them coming. It’s like an express train coming and the house shakes,” he said. “How many farmers got a seismograph? People tell me how many cattle they’ve got and how many acres they’ve got and I say well have you got a seismograph?”

Honors student Dan Sandiford recently finished a study on the seismic activity of areas with fractures in the rock bed, called faults. He looked at whether the activity was related to faults in the Gippsland area. “The question really is, are those faults still active? Are the earthquakes that are happening and have been recorded here in the modern era related to those faults? The study suggested that those earthquakes did happen on faults and those faults are some of the largest ones which are known in the area,” he said. Gary Gibson says it is hoped the research will have some impact on building regulations in the area. “One of the problems with living in an inactive area is firstly that your building standards don’t take serious consideration of the type of earthquake that is going to affect us,” he said. “The way you try and avoid problems with earthquakes is you don’t want buildings to collapse under any circumstances so they have to be designed to withstand it.” –ABC.net

Geologists express concern about volcanoes in Australia
December 11, 2013
– If the Mount Gambier volcano in Australia were to erupt with the same magnitude that it did 5,000 years ago, it’s impact would reach as far as 60 miles away from the eruption site. Scientists used 3D geometrical computer modeling and thermodynamics—the study of the relationship between different forms of energy—to determine the size and magnitude of the Mount Gambier eruption. It is believed to be the first time the magnitude and size of a volcano on Australian mainland has been calculated, based on volume estimates of the volcanic deposits, and modeling of the volcanic plume, ash-dispersal, and thermodynamics. Australia’s most recently active volcano registered as a size four eruption on the Volcanic Explosivity Index (VEI)—a similar size to the Eyjafjallajökull, Iceland eruption in 2010, which caused global chaos. Australia could face the same scale of tragedy if a volcano west of Melbourne was to erupt. “Little is known about the magnitude of eruptions from this volcanic province (the Newer Volcanics) that stretches around 400 kilometers between Melbourne and Mount Gambier,” says Jozua van Otterloo of the School of Geosciences at Monash University. “It has over 400 eruption centers and has been active for at least 4 to 5 million years. Normally the size and magnitude of eruptions of active volcanoes are determined based on observations during these eruptions.  

Using 3D geometrical modeling, we’ve shown it is also possible to obtain volume estimates for different deposits of a prehistoric, monogenetic volcanic center.” For the study, published in the Bulletin of Volcanology, the team produced a diagram showing the impact of ash plume as it dispersed from the 2010 Iceland eruption over Europe, but juxtaposed over Australia with the eruption in Mount Gambier. It was shown that the amount of material dispersed during the Mount Gambier eruption was equivalent to the volume of 130,000 Olympic pools. “Magma rose to the surface from a depth of 80 kilometers (50 miles) and a large part of that magma interacted with the shallow groundwater which made the eruption so violent. With an ash plume of at least 5 to 10 kilometers (3 to 6 miles) high, the eruption can be classified as a size four eruption on the Volcanic Explosivity Index (VEI),” van Otterloo says. “When and where the next eruption will occur is unknown. That is why our team continues undertaking extensive research in the area. Although statistics tell us it could be a long time before the next eruption, the main hazard is that when it does, we will only have a few days warning.” A similar eruption in the region would cause closure of the major airspace of eastern Australia, health risks from fine ash composed of glass fragments, destruction of crops, and impacts on livestock up to 100 kilometers (62 miles) from the erupting site and disruption to local infrastructure, van Otterloo says. “Understanding explosive volcanism aids the community to manage risk and provides insight into potential regional or global disruptions including to infrastructure, and impact on climate.” -Furturity

Australia  -  Dangerous Cyclone Ita Bearing Down on Queensland
April 10, 2014
Ita will move onshore Friday.
The above video discusses the weather around the world.
Tropical Cyclone Ita is just a few short hours from making landfall. The Queensland Coast from Cape Melville to Cape Flattery lays in the direct path of Ita.
The latest satellite imagery indicates that slight weakening occurred Thursday evening local time. However, Ita will remain a dangerous, powerful storm through landfall.
The organization of Ita was breathtaking earlier Thursday. The afternoon satellite picture showed an incredibly well organized storm.
SEVERE TROPICAL CYCLONE ITA, CATEGORY 5, poses a serious threat to communities along the far north Queensland coast.
It is expected to move southwest to southsouthwest

Dangerous Tropical Cyclone Ita Making Landfall in Australia
Apr 11, 2014
Queensland braced for category four storm.
power is lost to the township of Cooktown where hundreds are huddled in a cyclone shelter.

The Australian state of Queensland is braced for the arrival of Cyclone Ita, a category-four storm set to hit its far north coast.
The storm is expected to hit the Cape York peninsula shortly, making landfall in the north-east.
It was expected to bring damaging waves to some low-lying areas, the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) said, and heavy rain could cause flooding.
It is the strongest storm to hit since Cyclone Yasi, which struck in 2011.
Ita is expected to make landfall in the evening local time (10 hours ahead of GMT) near Cape Flattery in north-east Queensland.

prepare or evacuate

I saw radar of Ita - really ugly storm!

Australia storm
June 26, 2014  
Over a foot of snow in New South Wales and Victoria eastern Australia were lashed with storms, with heavy snow falling in mountainous areas. Trees were uprooted, damaging homes and cars, and the high winds downed power lines cutting electricity to 77,000 homes. Blizzards swept across the towns of Thredbo and Perisher

USGS deleted this quake!  They are systematicly removing earthquake data!
Apparantly govt kontrollees hate dutchsinse  reports.
They DONT want them reported.

Australia underwater volcanoes
July 13, 2015
-  A cluster of  4 extinct underwater volcanoes discovered off the coast of Sydney in Australia.  They may hold clues to how Australia separated from New Zealand.  The volcanoes were discovered about 250km (155 miles) off the coast of Sydney.

5.6 earthquake Australia
July 30, 2015
-  Off east coast ENE of Rainbow Beach, Queensland Australia N of Sydney.
The strongest earthquake in 80 years rocked the Queensland coast in Australia Thursday morning shaking houses and rattling windows.  The earthquake lasted between 15 seconds and 2 minutes and was measured at magnitude 5.3, but its centre was 100 kilometres offshore at a depth of 30 kilometres.  Residents reported the shaking over 447 kilometres from the Gold Coast, Brisbane and north to Bundaberg.  The earthquake was on a fault line running down the east coast of Australia and is triggered as the continent advances northward by upto 7 centimetres a year.
