Well guys it has been a while since we have seen a true DLP-HFE (deep long period, high frequency event). I believe it occurred twice in the past week but today, May 15, 2019, these events returned with a vengeance! Over 9 of these strange deep seismic events struck between 37km and 46km in depth off the coast of Pahala, Hawaii, off the southern section of the Big Island of Hawaii. In this post I will show you my theory as to what is causing these events. I will also show a great deal of seismic plots as well.
I accidentally posted this on my seismo-blog, instead of my Hawaii blog here. Oh well! CLICK HERE to visit the post about these events!
This blog is specifically for activity that occurs in Hawaii. In light of 2018's eruptions on the Big Island, I felt it necessary to have a section entirely devoted to events in Hawaii. I now mostly use this blog to update people on volcanic spasmodic tremor which occurs deep within the mantle plume conduit(s) under Pahala, HI. Don't know what spasmodic tremor is? Don't fret! Simply go to the Hawaii menu and click the page about Hawaii Spasmodic Tremor.
