    Hi Mr Don
    Always enjoy your input and references.
    I was looking at the P wave from the (4.9 western indian artic ridge last week now) and was wondering what that energy means if anything? The way it falls over the west coast and the caribbean region seems omnious?? I have never seen the p wave line cross those areas like that. But then again.. I have not been looking at P waves or have any experience in that area. Can constant P wave energy or vibrations affect faults over time?
    Any thoughts on that would be appreciated. Blessings Sara

    Hi Sara. Sorry it has taken me so long to answer your question. I don't usually look at the Personal board, but that is my problem and no one else.

    A single 4.9M quake does not have the energy to trigger another quake at long distances, but a couple 100 of them hitting close to the same spot on a distant fault would affect it over time. I have no proof of that, but suspect this could happen. It is something to think on. I'm glad you asked the question. Thank you. Take Care...Don

    Thank you Mr. Don . I was just struck by seeing that line up & down the whole length of the west.

    It seems like the Pwave energy is sometimes more comcentrated in the smallest circle.
    Mind you I am not at all informed or educated in any of these things. Just my observation..
    Have a blessed day. S~

    Hi Sara. The area you're referring to is known to us as a regional area. Most of the quakes after a large quake has occurred will occur in the this area.

    It's not the “P” wave that does the triggering. The “P” wave is the fastest of all the waves, but it is also the gentlest of all the waves. Some people will never feel it.

    There are 2 types of waves comprised of 4 different kinds of waves. The types of waves are body and surface. The body wave is the only seismic wave that can pass through a liquid such as water or air.

    The waves that are thought to be responsible for the triggering are the surface waves. I think it is the “R” wave, but there are those who think it is both the “L” and “R” waves. They could be right and as a matter of fact I'm starting to think they are right. The people that use just the P-103 and the P-140 wave are using less then 10% of all the waves that can remotely trigger a quake and trying to use a quake with a magnitude of less then 7.0M don't know what they are doing, nor they really know anything about quakes and remote triggering. Before you can run you have to learn to walk and before you can walk you have to learn to crawl. Some of them when it comes to quakes are still in the crawling stage. I suspect that for many of them it's not really their fault as they don't really have the time to sit down study quakes or spend hours talking to someone who has spent a lifetime learning about them. To tell the truth we know a lot about earthquakes, but we understand a very small fraction of what we know.

    To know something is one thing, but understanding it is what expands the horizons. It lets you take the next step in learning more. I hope your horizons expand beyond your imagination. Take Care...Don

    The link explains it far better then I can.

    Thanks Don for the info.. Understanding leads to expand the scope or more understanding and more questions and

    the more questions you have.. the more you are likely to seek out knowledge and understanding. My imagination and curiosity are motivators for my understanding. Thanks, Don, for your valuable insight.
