Scientists discover a large-scale motion around San Andreas Fault

The Watchers has the story –

““While the San Andreas GPS data has been publicly available for more than a decade, the vertical component of the measurements had largely been ignored in tectonic investigations because of difficulties in interpreting the noisy data. Using this technique, we were able to break down the noisy signals to isolate a simple vertical motion pattern that curiously straddled the San Andreas fault,” said Samuel Howell, a doctoral candidate at the UH Mānoa School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST) and lead author of the study.

But but Jerry Brown may not have enough time to force the jesuit vaccination program, oh dear oh dear.

Maybe Bill Gates and his vax lab in Seattle (a U of Wash.) will fall into the sea from that Oregon subduction zone thing….

The WatchersSan Andreas fault prone to low-frequency tremors caused by the gravitational pull of Sun and Moon

A new study, led by the US Geological Survey (USGS) scientists revealed the gravitational pull of Sun and Moon, responsible for inducing the tides, can also trigger special types of earthquakes on the well-known San Andreas fault.
