A Week of Seismic Events in the Intermountain Corridor
For those of you who are aware of my hobby, related to my early studies in Archaeology and Geomorphology, the study of earth movements (seismic) for the Intermountain Corridor (Utah to Yellowstone), you may be expecting my map every seven or eight days to see how things are here. I have been reporting since October 2010, to inform, never alarm.
By chance if an X is drawn on the map, then I reside at about the center of my area of interest. You will have seen in previous posts that we have had up to 65 events in a week, being told by the University of Utah Seismic Center to expect up to 700 for the year.
This last week has been a fizzer, only 16 events.
But then again, with rain and the snow melt we have supersaturated soils and have been subject to slips and mud slides. More rain and more mountain snow-cover melt, and these should keep us occupied in changing terrain for a while yet.
Even for a relaxing and absorbing hobby, I live in expectation that the "bumps" will occur They are normal for this area.
