QuakeSwarm near Lakeview, OR has experts stressing Earthquake Preparedness | #VolcanoSeason

Volcano Season Update:

12/16/14

The ongoing #quakeswarm near Lakeview, Oregon on the Nevada border continues to quietly rage on with no let up in more than 2 months.  Yellowstone continues to "Burp" SO2 and Methane, Mt Shasta sheds glaciers, and Mt Saint Helens #MagmaChamber is Re-Charging. With the continued uptick in Global Volcanism and stronger Seismic events on the increase, 

When we will see a significant eruption in the Inter Mountain West?


The previously thought to be Dormant Cascadia Fault Zone is poised for a Major Slippage event. We here at MP are not Seismologists, Volcanologists or Climate Scientists.We can see a Trend and it shows that we are in the middle of what some have deemed #VolcanoSeason. We are not Predicting an Earthquake or Eruption, yet, Be Prepared for Seismic events if you live near one of these areas. _MP

Current reports from the area in the corner of Nevada shows over 120 #quakes in the last 7 Days. The temblors have been growing steadily stronger with time. Six earthquakes of magnitude 4.0 or greater have struck the area since Tuesday and about 40 have struck in the last 24 hours, This week it has just gone crazy

The swarm is beneath an uninhabited part of the Nevada desert near the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge, but officials are telling the public, especially the almost 2,300 residents of Lakeview, to develop earthquake plans if they haven't already.
"If you are not ready for an earthquake, now is an awfully good time to get ready for an earthquake," said Alison Ryan, a spokeswoman for the department. - LATimes.com

Northeast California and Nevada Dealing With Swarm Of Earthquakes

About 750 earthquakes, mostly magnitude 2.0 to 3.0, have struck the area about 50 miles southeast of Lakeview, Ore., since the swarm started in July, said Ian Madin, chief scientist for Oregon's Department of Geology and Mineral Industries. "This week it has just gone crazy," Madin said. - LATimes.com

A swarm of hundreds of earthquakes that has been striking a corner of the Nevada desert near the Oregon border for months has intensified in recent days, prompting new warnings from seismologists.  

About 750 earthquakes, mostly magnitude 2.0 to 3.0, have struck the area about 50 miles southeast of Lakeview, Ore., since the swarm started in July, said Ian Madin, chief scientist for Oregon's Department of Geology and Mineral Industries.




The temblors have been growing steadily stronger with time. Six earthquakes of magnitude 4.0 or greater have struck the area since Tuesday and about 40 have struck in the last 24 hours, Madin said.

"This week it has just gone crazy," Madin said.


The swarm is beneath an uninhabited part of the Nevada desert near the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge, but officials are telling the public, especially the almost 2,300 residents of Lakeview, to develop earthquake plans if they haven't already.


"If you are not ready for an earthquake, now is an awfully good time to get ready for an earthquake," said Alison Ryan, a spokeswoman for the department.


Scientists believe groundwater is slowly percolating along the faults and building up pressure, making movement on the faults much easier, said John Vidale, director of the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network at the University of Washington.


"It doesn't necessarily mean anything big is coming, but it does raise the risk there will be a bigger quake in the future," he said. "Ninety-nine percent of the time nothing too dramatic happens, but every now and then there is a good pop and everyone asks why we didn't predict it."

Mapping, geologic evolution and petrogenesis of the McDermitt caldera center, northern Nevada & southern Oregon, USA

Abstract:
The McDermitt caldera center ("McDermitt") is a polygenetic mid-Miocene volcanic center along the border of northern Nevada and southern Oregon, USA, and is one of the first silicic centers associated with the Yellowstone hotspot. McDermitt was active during the main stage of the voluminous Columbia River Basalt Group eruptions, and Steens Basalt forms the base of the Miocene volcanic section. Magmatism climaxed with the caldera-forming eruption of the ~ 400 km3 compositionally variable McDermitt Tuff at 16.35 ± 0.03 Ma. Geologic mapping of the western caldera margin has revealed much information on the evolution of the McDermitt caldera center and insight to the mechanics of the caldera-forming eruption. Geochemical investigations of the mafic volcanics at McDermitt reveals important links between local mafic magmas and the Steens Basalts, and thus to the Columbia River Basalts. A small group of compositionally distinct basalts at McDermitt have the most oceanic chemical signatures yet found among basalts of the Yellowstone hotpsot, which bears on the plume versus non-plume argument for the Yellowstone hotspot. Petrologic investigations and modeling of the silicic magmas reveal AFC process as the dominant magma evolution mechanism for the rhyolites at McDermitt, but some deviations exist (e.g., abundant assimilation, partial melting of cumulates crystallized from the magma). The results of this study are consistent with a model where Steens source magmas underplated Cretaceous intrusions as a result of mantle upwelling from the Yellowstone hotspot. These mafic magmas assimilated the country rock, and coupled with fractionation, evolved to a suite of intermediate magmas. The intermediate magmas subsequently evolved, through AFC and other evolutionary pathways, to form the rhyolites at McDermitt.
