A 5.0 Earthquake registered just west of Attu Island, Alaska. 100.0km depth EQ’s are common in this region as explained below. this is about one half of that depth which asks other questions of the event. This is a region know for volcanism. Is there heat rising below this Arctic latitude? We know in general that is a given, with the massive Methane release that continues, post decades of HAARP like tomographic frequencies from various Global Ionospheric Heater Impacts. Some of the evidence is in the lovely nature images of bubbles frozen, yet rising in water basins. Have they set a feedback loop into motion? That is a question that all should be watching closely…
With 9 earthquakes today and some 54 in the last seven days; Alaska is no stranger to over 5.0M earthquakes and swarms of various types. This on happens to be relatively close to an array network which is allegedly under U.S. auspices. The relativity of Sovereignty, Technocratic agenda of Raytheon, and the Eugenics Plan bring events of this nature into the area of function. The natural or other events which hinder Star Wars like security systems brings many potentialities to bear.
Attu is the westernmost island in the Near Islands group of the Aleutian Islands of Alaska. It is the westernmost point of land relative to Alaska, the U.S., and N. America. The island was the site of the only WW1l land battle fought on an incorporated territory of the U.S. and its battlefield is a U.S. National Historic Landmark.
Attu Station is located at 52°51′ north latitude, 173°11′ east longitude. It was formerly LORAN station, U.S. Coast Guard. It is one of the westernmost points of the U.S. relative to the rest of the country. However, since it is in the Eastern Hemisphere, being on the opposite side of the 180° longitude line as the contiguous 48 states, it can also be considered one of the easternmost points of the country. A second Aleutian Island, Semisopochnoi Island at 179°46′ E, is the easternmost location in the United States by this definition; a paradox…
Here is an explanation of the seismotectonics of this area of Alaska.
The Aleutian arc extends approximately 3,000 km from the Gulf of Alaska in the east to the Kamchatka Peninsula in the west. It marks the region where the Pacific plate subducts into the mantle beneath the North America plate. This subduction is responsible for the generation of the Aleutian Islands and the deep offshore Aleutian Trench.
The curvature of the arc results in a westward transition of relative plate motion from trench-normal i.e., compressional, in the east to trench-parallel i.e., translational in the west, accompanied by westward variations in seismic activity, volcanism, and overriding plate composition. The Aleutian arc is generally divided into three regions: the western, central, and eastern Aleutians. Relative to a fixed North America plate, the Pacific plate is moving northwest at a rate that increases from roughly 60 mm/yr at the arc’s eastern edge to 76 mm/yr near its western terminus. The eastern Aleutian arc extends from the Alaskan Peninsula in the east to the Fox Islands in the west. Motion along this section of the arc is characterized by arc-perpendicular convergence and Pacific plate subduction beneath thick continental lithosphere. This region exhibits intense volcanic activity and has a history of megathrust earthquakes.
The central Aleutian arc extends from the Andrean of Islands in the east to the Rat Islands in the west. Here, motion is characterized by westward-increasing oblique convergence and Pacific plate subduction beneath thin oceanic lithosphere. Along this portion of the arc, the Wadati-Benioff zone is well defined to depths of approximately 200 km. Despite the obliquity of convergence, active volcanism and megathrust earthquakes are also present along this margin. 1*
Here are two satellite images of the battle zones of Attu Island during WW11.
This is COBRA DANE -PAVE PAWS -Phased Array Intense Radiant Emitter as it is being upgraded from early RADAR Systems.
This is closer to todays upgrades at Eareckson Air Station -Shemya Island, Alaska, encased in the classic Radome housing.
The question is, are these earthquakes disrupting the function of the PAVE PAWS Network? Alaska is no stranger to deep sizable earthquakes. This is a highly active tectonic region…
