7.4 / 6.8 Magnitude EARTHQUAKE - SCOTIA SEA South Georgia Islands
Nov 16, 2013  
Quakes often downgraded later, the first report is usually correct.
A 7.4 magnitude Scotia Sea earthquake today prompted no tsunami. The quake was southeast of Chile and Argentina.
The quake started 20 miles below sea level and had a broad impact.

USGS indicates the Scotia Sea earthquake began 5 miles south of the South Sandwich Islands.
The quake was roughly 900 miles south of Argentina and 700 miles south of the Falkland Islands.
Argentina had a quake Nov. 15th.

The oceans are all tied together.  
At the south pole - antarctica - the Atlantic meets the Pacific.
Toward Africa, the Atlantic meets the Indian ocean.
There have been HUGE earth changes few are aware of in the past 2 years or so.
Dont believe its man-caused climate change.  It may be man-caused like HAARP weapons, but nothing to do with Al Gore and his witchcraft.

]6.4-magnitude earthquake hits the Pacific-Antarctic Ridge
October 31, 2010
-  A strong earthquake struck the Pacific-Antarctic Ridge on early Saturday.

The 6.4-magnitude earthquake at 5.18 a.m. local time (1518 GMT) on Saturday was centered on the Pacific-Antarctic Ridge, a divergent tectonic plate boundary located on the seafloor of the South Pacific Ocean, separating the Pacific Plate from the Antarctic Plate. It struck about 20 kilometers (12.4 miles) below the seabed, making it a shallowearthquake, according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS).

With New Zealand about 3,480 kilometers (2,160 miles) away to the southeast, no one could have felt the earthquake. It was also not strong enough to generate a tsunami.

Antarctic sea ice set another record this past week, with the most amount of ice ever recorded
Sep 2012 -  Antarctic sea ice set another record this past week, with the most amount of ice ever recorded on day 256 of the calendar year (September 12 of this leap year). Please, nobody tell the mainstream media or they might have to retract some stories and admit they are misrepresenting scientific data.

Atlantic Ocean Floor Unexpectedly Pumping Iron
August, 2013  Atlantic ridge

A plume of iron billowing from the depth of the Atlantic Ocean suggests the seafloor may be pumping iron.
The iron cloud spreads 621 miles across the Atlantic from west of Angola, Africa, to northeast of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Oceanographers shocked at this huge bull’s-eye right in the middle of the South Atlantic Ocean.
Cracks in the Earth crust, or hydrothermal vents, on the ocean floor released the iron.

A long ridge splits the Atlantic Ocean as geological forces gradually force the ocean wider.
The slow-spreading Atlantic ridge was thought to produce less iron and other chemicals than vents in regions with speedier splits, like the ridge in the eastern Pacific.

The Atlantic Ocean iron plume may provide a smorgasbord for oceanic phytoplankton, the tiny, plant-like organisms that form the base of many marine food webs.
Those phytoplankton provide food for fish and whales. The plankton also suck in large amounts of carbon dioxide.
When the plankton die they can carry that carbon with them to bottom of the ocean.

ANTARTICA  What’s melting so many glaciers ? Searching for hidden volcanoes under the ice
April 7, 2012
 Mount Sidley, the highest volcano in Antarctica, may have a lot of company lurking out of sight. Scientists are using seismographs to hunt for hidden volcanoes in Antarctica. Scientists have used radar and other imaging technology to uncover some astounding finds under the East Antarctic Ice Sheet: A vast mountain range that rivals the Alps, and Lake Vostok, one of Earth’s largest lakes. Finally, seismographs can reveal hidden sources of seismic activity — little earthquakes that could be the signatures of active volcanoes hidden under the ice. “It’s really the first time we’re able to look at the interior structure of the mantle,” said Andrew Lloyd, a WSLU Ph.D. student who traveled hundreds of miles by snowmobile to help retrieve some of the seismographs — and the reams of data they recorded. “It will enable us to say something really definitive about the tectonics and geology of the region, which is something nobody has been able to do before,” Lloyd said. Wiens said that the data are already revealing a tantalizing picture of what is going on beneath West Antarctica, a place that is, in the words of one scientist, “hemorrhaging ice. We do see these big variations in the temperature in the mantle across parts of Antarctica that will have a big effect on the ice sheet,” Wiens said. However, he added, many months of work lie ahead, and it will be some time before scientists are ready to announce to the world what lies beneath the ice. –Live Science

Large-scale seismic activity rising along planet’s southern pole
January  2012
 A strong and shallow series of earthquakes have erupted near the South Shetland Islands region of Antarctica.
A 6.6 magnitude followed by a 6.2 magnitude earthquake and 5.1 and 5.6 aftershocks.
The epicenter west of Coronation Island.

The earthquake series is worrisome because it’s further evidence that the Southern hemisphere, particularly around the periphery of Antarctic, is shows increasing signs of seismic destabilization.
On January 12, there was a swarm of five moderate earthquakes which erupted south of Africa- the strongest of which was a 5.3 and a 5.5.
On January 13, the South Sandwich Islands, north of Antarctica, was hit with a 5.1, and 5.2.
On January 14 the region was struck again with a 5.0 earthquake and another 4.9 on January 15th.

Not only are earthquakes increasing along the southern polar region but in November of 2011, the Tasmania’s Antarctic Climate and Ecosystem centre found that the South Ocean was storing more heat than any other ocean on the planet. The shape of the earth, a mal-formed spheroid, whose center of gravity is becoming increasing displaced by the turbulent shifting of the planet’s mass due to a wave of strong earthquakes that have rattled the planet over the last 7 years. These large mega-thrust earthquakes are exacting a terrible toll of stress on the planet’s angular momentum.

In 2004, the planet suffered a devastating 9.1 mega-thrust earthquake in the Indian Ocean. In
February of 2010, Chile was rocked by a 8.8 magnitude earthquake and in March of 2011,
Japan was similarly hit with a 9.0 magnitude earthquake and tsunami.

Shocked   7.8 Earthquake Antarctica
Nov. 17, 2013
Very big quake here yesterday and now this much stronger quake!
A 7.8 earthquake in the South Atlantic Ocean in the Scotia Sea, and follows a 6.1 magnitude quake recorded there three days ago.

A powerful 7.8 magnitude undersea earthquake struck in the Scotia Sea, a remote region in the far south Atlantic near Antarctica.
The quake struck at 0904 GMT in the ocean some 893 kilometers (550 miles) southwest of Grytviken, South Georgia,
and 1,140 kilometers (710 miles) southeast of Ushuaia, Argentina, said the US Geological Survey, which monitors earthquakes worldwide. (AFP)

YESTERDAY
6.8 magnitude earthquake rattles ocean floor of Scotia Sea
November 16, 2013 – SOUTH AMERICA
- A strong 6.8 magnitude undersea earthquake struck in a remote area known as Scotia Sea, between the furthest tip of South America and Antarctica, U.S. monitors said late Friday. There is a low likelihood that the quake, which struck at 0334 GMT Saturday, will cause casualties or damage because of its remote location, said the U.S. Geological Survey, which monitors earthquakes worldwide.

Lionfish invasion is threatening the Atlantic Ocean
October, 2013
The venomous fish is capable of producing 30,000 to 40,000 eggs every few days.
Lionfish are invading the Atlantic Ocean at an increased rate and scientists are worried that consequences could be grave.
A native of the tropical waters of the South Pacific and Indian Oceans, the lionfish is a venomous, fast-reproducing fish that has no known predators. Aggressive eaters that will eat almost anything, lionfish are capable of destroying 90 percent of a reef.

"The lionfish invasion is probably the worst environmental disaster the Atlantic will ever face," said Graham Maddocks, president and founder of Ocean Support Foundation. His organization currently works to help reduce the lionfish population in Bermuda.

Lionfish produce 30,000 to 40,000 eggs every couple of days and are sexually mature by the time they are a year old.

Ecologist James Morris of the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science said the lionfish brought a "big change in biodiversity," to the Atlantic Ocean and that they are "the most abundant top-level predator on some coral reefs (in the Atlantic)."

In Bermuda, people attempt to control the lionfish population by having fishing tournaments and fish fries, where residents sometimes wear "Eat 'em to Beat 'em" T-shirts.

Quote:
"It's an infestation," Morris said. "The Atlantic Ocean is a big place, but the areas being affected are extremely important."


"When I began diving 10 years ago, lionfish were a rare and mysterious species seen deep within coral crevices in the Pacific Ocean," said Serena Hackerott, a researcher who studies lionfish. "They can now been seen across the Caribbean, hovering above the reefs throughout the day and gathering in groups of up to ten or more on a single coral head."

ANTARCTICA - Scientists find new volcano rumbling under Antarctica ice
November 18, 2013
–  A volcano may be stirring beneath a major ice sheet in Antarctica, raising the possibility of faster base melting. Seismologists working in western Antarctica detected a swarm of low-magnitude earthquakes in 2010 and 2011 similar to those that can precede volcanic eruptions.

The area of activity lies close to the youngest in a chain of volcanoes. The tight focus of the 1,370 tremors and their deep, long-period waves helped researchers rule out ice quakes, glacial motion or tectonic activity as causes. So, too, did their apparent depth: At 15-25 miles beneath the sub-glacial surface, they are close to the local boundary between Earth’s crust and mantle. “At first I had no idea it was something volcanic, and then, as I started putting together all the pieces, it started looking more and more like I’d found a volcano,” said study co-author Amanda Lough.
Chances of a massive fire-and-ice catastrophe are slim, however.

Radar imaging revealed a buried ash layer believed to be from an eruption of Mt. Waesche about 8,000 years ago. There also is evidence of small flows of magma on the sub-ice topography, and the surface closest to the swarm appears to be a mound of volcanic material, according to the study.
The study was led by geophysicist and seismologist Douglas Wiens of Washington University.
Other research team members hailed from UC Santa Cruz, Penn State University, New Mexico Tech, Colorado State University, the University of Texas at Austin, Central Washington University and Ohio State.

7.0 earthquake FALKLAND Islands, S Atlantic
Nov. 25, 2013  -  5 earthquakes shake Falkland Islands in 2 hours

http://www.upi.com/Top_News/World...injury-reports/UPI-39671385380222
http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/7-0-...s-near-falkland-islands-1.2438893

http://www.thehindu.com/news/inte...lkland-islands/article5389942.ece

The Falklands are a British territory that is claimed by Argentina.
The USGS says the quake followed four others that all measured more than 5.0, over a two-hour period leading up to the big quake. It says such quakes are uncommon in the region. Only 15 quakes of more than 5.0 had been measured in the region in the previous 40 years.

USGS stopped using the Richter scale, and consequently registers quakes considerably LESS than actual.

ANTARTICA hot spot
Dec 12, 2013
 I have been following these unusual major earthquakes recently. ALL seas connect, the Atlantic and Pacific connect here. Volcanoes are erupting globally, odd sounds echo as earth’s plates move around and fault zones move.
JESUS is COMING!

Scientists find giant mantle plume (similar to Yellowstone) under Antarctica.
A big, hot blob hiding beneath the bottom of the world could be evidence of a long-sought mantle plume under West Antarctica, researchers said Monday (Dec. 9) here at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union. The possible hotspot — a plume of superheated rock rising from Earth’s mantle — sits under Marie Byrd Land, a broad dome at West Antarctica’s edge where many active volcanoes above and below the ice spit lava and ash. The hot zone was discovered with seismic imaging techniques that rely on earthquake waves to build pictures of Earth’s inner layers, similar to how a CT scan works. Beneath Marie Byrd Land, earthquake waves slow down, suggesting the mantle here is warmer than surrounding rocks. The strongest low-velocity zone sits below Marie Byrd Land’s Executive Committee Range, directly under the Mount Sidley volcano, said Andrew Lloyd, a graduate student at Washington University in St. Louis. “The slow velocities suggest that it’s a mantle hotspot,” Lloyd said. The hot zone also matches up with Marie Byrd Land’s high topography and active volcanoes, Lloyd said. Many researchers have long suspected that Marie Byrd Land sits atop a hotspot, because the region swells above the surrounding topography like the top of a warm soufflé (and it has lots of volcanoes). But with few seismometers sitting on the ice, scientists were left speculating about what lies beneath Antarctica’s ice.

The evidence for the new hot zone, called a thermal anomaly, comes from a massive, temporary earthquake-monitoring network called Polenet that was installed between 2010 and 2012, giving scientists an unprecedented look at Antarctica’s crust and mantle. (A gravity survey conducted at the same time also suggests there is a big warm spot beneath this part of West Antarctica.) But confirming that Marie Byrd Land is truly above a hotspot may require a return trip to Antarctica for another seismic experiment, said Doug Wiens, principal investigator on Polenet. “What’s absolutely sure is there’s a big thermal anomaly, a big blob,” said Wiens, a seismologist at Washington University. “What’s less sure is whether that anomaly goes deeper.” The thermal anomaly extends 125 miles (200 kilometers) below Marie Byrd Land, Lloyd said. Below about 255 miles (410 km), where a mantle plume’s trailing tail would also leave a hotter-than-average mark in mantle rocks, there’s little evidence for a rising hotspot, said Erica Emry, a postdoctoral researcher at Pennsylvania State University. “There’s no smoking gun,” Emry said. However, more work remains to be done on the Polenet data, which could reveal new clues and further refine what the mantle looks like under West Antarctica, Emry told LiveScience’s OurAmazingPlanet.

The discovery is one of many new insights reported Monday into the geologic mysteries concealed by Antarctica’s thick ice. Other findings include extremely thin crust, just 10 miles (17 km) thick, in West Antarctica’s Ross embayment near the Transantarctic Mountain Range, said Xinlei Sun, a postdoctoral researcher at Washington University. The Ross embayment is one of Antarctica’s two big coastal divots; the gap is filled by the Ross Ice Shelf. Here, the crust is as thin as in the Gulf of California, where continental rifting (also called extension) is tearing Baja California from mainland Mexico and building a new ocean basin. “This is the thinnest crust [in Antarctica] and is probably related to an extensional environment,” Sun said. On the other side of the Transantarctic Mountains lies the thick, old crust of East Antarctica, similar to the relatively stable interiors of continents such as North America and Africa. Antarctica’s thickest crust is found here, beneath the Gamburtsev Mountain Range. The Gamburtsevs are spectacular Alpine peaks completely buried in ice; the crust here is about 31 miles (50 km) thick. The crust beneath Marie Byrd Land is about 15 miles (25 km) thick, Sun said. -TWC

East Antarctica is sliding sideways!?
December 13, 2013
–  It’s official: East Antarctica is pushing West Antarctica around. Now that West Antarctica is losing weight–that is, billions of tons of ice per year–its softer mantle rock is being nudged westward by the harder mantle beneath East Antarctica. The discovery comes from researchers led by The Ohio State University, who have recorded GPS measurements that show West Antarctic bedrock is being pushed sideways at rates up to about twelve millimeters–about half an inch–per year. This movement is important for understanding current ice loss on the continent, and predicting future ice loss. They reported the results on Thursday, Dec. 12 at the American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco. Half an inch doesn’t sound like a lot, but it’s actually quite dramatic compared to other areas of the planet, explained Terry Wilson, professor of earth sciences at Ohio State. Wilson leads POLENET, an international collaboration that has planted GPS and seismic sensors all over the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. She and her team weren’t surprised to detect the horizontal motion. After all, they’ve been using GPS to observe vertical motion on the continent since the 1990′s. They were surprised, she said, to find the bedrock moving towards regions of greatest ice loss. ‘From computer models, we knew that the bedrock should rebound as the weight of ice on top of it goes away,” Wilson said.

“But the rock should spread out from the site where the ice used to be. Instead, we see movement toward places where there was the most ice loss.” The seismic sensors explained why. By timing how fast seismic waves pass through the earth under Antarctica, the researchers were able to determine that the mantle regions beneath east and west are very different. West Antarctica contains warmer, softer rock, and East Antarctica has colder, harder rock. Stephanie Konfal, a research associate with POLENET, pointed out that where the transition is most pronounced, the sideways movement runs perpendicular to the boundary between the two types of mantle. She likened the mantle interface to a pot of honey. “If you imagine that you have warm spots and cold spots in the honey, so that some of it is soft and some is hard”” Konfal said, “and if you press down on the surface of the honey with a spoon, the honey will move away from the spoon, but the movement won’t be uniform.

The hard spots will push into the soft spots. And when you take the spoon away, the soft honey won’t uniformly flow back up to fill the void, because the hard honey is still pushing on it.” Or, put another way, ice compressed West Antarctica’s soft mantle. Some ice has melted away, but the soft mantle isn’t filling back in uniformly, because East Antarctica’s harder mantle is pushing it sideways. The crust is just along for the ride. This finding is significant, Konfal said, because we use these crustal motions to understand ice loss. “We’re witnessing expected movements being reversed, so we know we really need computer models that can take lateral changes in mantle properties into account.” Wilson said that such extreme differences in mantle properties are not seen elsewhere on the planet where glacial rebound is occurring. “We figured Antarctica would be different,” she said. “We just didn’t know how different.” –Space Daily
