The UVS inductive resolution on the driver of earthquakes

Based on the UVS model, Solar System objects in focused crossed alignments with their torque-induced precession, can manifest forced vortices inside the Earth in its mantle sphere. And with resonated torque-free precession rendered by the tilted rotating Earth that gyrates with precession effects in the Solar System, it could drive to manifest various type of earthquake.
.

UVS predicates that earthquakes can be triggered by the forced vortices of the mantle sphere with the precession effects of Solar System objects.

See the UVS topics on "The orbits of natural satellites" that illustrates orbits are rendered by transferred vortical motion, and "Atmospheric polar vortex" that elaborates on the paradoxical formed forced vortex pair of Earth's atmospheric polar vortex.

Evidently, it was empirically observed that a regular monthly pattern of moonquakes on the Moon, was triggered by the tidal forces of lunar tides.

The cognitive paradoxes that negate to render the misconception for the driver of earthquakes, was thus meticulously resolved with the underlying structure and mechanism explicated.

The grounding for its epistemic theories of truth: The underlying structure and mechanism of a peculiar type of rumbling earthquake as explicated with its hypothetical construct based on the UVS model, elucidated its delusional observations that render its misconceptions, mysteries, and anomalies. Thus, its cognitive paradox could be meticulously resolved, and all the related natural phenomena were then qualitatively analysed in the conceptual frameworks of UVS by inductive reasoning for explicating with their empirical evidence to establish their qualitative predictions with abductive reasoning.

See the UVS topic on "Overviews of the UVS research" that elaborates on the grounded theory methodology for the evaluations of natural phenomena.

Subsuming plate tectonics, Earth's crust is a stratified layer formed on lithosphere, which has several pieces of overlapping and shifting tectonic plates that overlay on asthenosphere, which overlays on the lower mantle sphere. The supposedly predominantly solid Earth's mantle underneath the stratified crust surface, is actually an ocean of viscous medium in geological time.

In the UVS worldview, the spiral motion of the Earth moving through space with the Solar System gyrating around the Galactic Center, would render vortical motions in the mantle sphere to cause continental drift in geological time scale.

UVS predicates that continental drift is caused by vortical motion manifested in the mantle sphere with the motion of Earth spirally moving in a gyrating Solar System.

Note: The nature of the forces propelling the tectonic plates to cause continental drift, is an unresolved problem in geology.

In a grander UVS worldview of cosmological time scale, a galaxy is vortically formed in its supervoid. The vortical motion transferred from the Milky Way, formed the Solar System.

See a paper on "Jupiter and Io Observe Each Other" that elaborate on a moon of Jupiter undergoes tides and earthquakes on a 42-hour cycle as it orbits Jupiter, suggesting it is subjected to gravitational wringer that squeeze, stretch and release the moon in a cyclical manner.

See the UVS topics on "Satellite vortices of Jupiter" that evidently illustrates vortices have had formed deep inside Jupiter, and "Oceanic whirlpool" that elaborates on all sorts of naturally manifested oceanic vortices.

From the UVS perspective, the tidal force from a significant Solar System object, such as the Moon or the Sun, would paradoxically manifest forced vortices to act on the mantle sphere of the Earth at its two pairs of focal points, which are the four focal points of two tidal bulges and two tidal depressions.

The two tidal depressions of the mantle sphere, would render greater negative pressure on the tectonic plates at their two focal points with their paradoxically manifested pair of forced vortices. Whereas the two tidal bulges of the mantle sphere, would render greater positive pressure on the tectonic plates at their two focal points with their paradoxically manifested pair of inverted forced vortices

Paradoxically, the apparently convex structure of a tidal depression, is actually a concave structure that has its geodetic effect. The negative pressure from a forced vortex of mantle that has vortically cavitated underneath the lithosphere, would tremendously subject the tectonic plates to the pushed-in pressure of their own weight and the weight of the crust pushing down from above.

In an arrangement of aligned Solar System objects with precession effects manifested on a tilted rotating Earth, it would render torsion force to cause vortical motion around the focal points in the intensified forced vortices of the mantle sphere.

The forced vortices of the mantle sphere that have formed underneath Earth's crust, would form standing waves at their focal points with manifested torque-free precessions rendered by the tilted rotating Earth, and thus cause movements and vibrations to those overlapping tectonic plates.

Note: It was observed that the ocean tide of the faster rotating Earth that faces the Moon, leads the slower orbiting Moon by about 10-degrees.

If a rigid stratified layer could form on the surface on the oceans, and with the transferred motions rendered by the manifested oceanic vortices in human time scale, the rigid layer would be subjected to the torsion forces to cause movements. In geological time scale, tectonic plates overlaying on mantle, would similarly be subjected to the vortical torsion forces of the mantle sphere.

Paradoxically, with the circumstantial evidence that could be empirically observed, it elucidates that the primary driver for such earthquakes manifested from underneath the Earth's crust, could actually be rendered by the celestial mechanism of the Solar System.

Heuristically, the combined tidal forces of the Solar System objects in their crossed alignment arrangements, would act on the mantle sphere of Earth to internally exert tension on the tectonic plates. And with the effects of a tilted rotating Earth generated at the focal points of the paradoxically formed forced vortices of the mantle sphere, these could act on the tectonic plates to cause different types of earthquake under different circumstances, such as the more easily caused earthquakes at the active faults, the intraplate earthquakes, or the megathrust earthquakes that could trigger tsunami events when occurred underneath the ocean.

On April 4th, 2010 at 15:40:41 local time when the 2010 Baja California earthquake of magnitude 7.2 was occurring on the Laguna Salada Fault, the arrangement of the Solar System objects was triple alignment of aligned Earth-Mercury-Venus cross-aligned with the aligned Saturn-Earth-Uranus, and the aligned Moon-Earth-Mars. And Sun-Earth formed a T-junction crossed alignment with the aligned Moon-Earth-Mars, while Saturn was high up on top in the skyview of the epicenter.

And many occurrences of earthquake were also associated with Solar System alignment effect; these are the circumstantial evidence that some earthquakes were directly triggered by the torque-induced precession caused by their forced vortices of the mantle sphere that has manifested underneath the Earth's crust with resonated torque-free precession.

See "Major earthquakes and their Solar System alignments" for some simplified case studies of Solar System objects arrangements for some major earthquake events.


The arrangement of Solar System objects on 04/04/2010.

In year 2005, there were 142 earthquakes recorded with magnitude of above 6.0 on Ritcher scale. And evidently, strong earthquake events were usually associated with the crossed alignments of aligned Solar System objects.

The stochastic analyses of a peculiar T-junction crossed alignment of Solar System objects with the epicenters also almost aligned in earthquake events, constitutes as the strong evidence that such earthquakes were driven by the precession effects on a gyrating Earth with the planetary arrangements.

The intraplate earthquake

From the UVS perspective, an intraplate earthquake, could be caused by a wobbling forced vortex of the mantle sphere with precession effect to propagate seismic waves that oscillates the Earth with specific resonant frequencies.

Watch video clips on "Liquid sound waves on a coffee can" that demonstrates how induced sound waves could physically form standing waves in a high viscosity medium, "Perpetual Ocean" that illustrates amazing satellite views for vortices manifested in Earth's ocean, and an interactive global wind map of the Earth with "EarthWindMap" that shows all sorts of currently manifested atmospheric vortices, the global map can also be set to ocean mode for viewing oceanic currents and manifested whirlpools.

These seismic waves strongly rumbling in the affected zones are known to be propagated spherically out from a hypocenter of an earthquake, and the vibration radiating from the hypocenter is dilated in a circular manner on the Earth's crust at its epicenter. The empirical observations of hypocenters at the epicenters of intraplate earthquake events, are strong evidence that suggest such earthquakes are triggered by the resonated forced vortices of the mantle sphere.

.UVS predicates that an intraplate earthquake is caused by seismic waves generated from a forced vortex of the mantle sphere with resonated torque-free precession.

From the UVS perspective, the dynamo effect manifested in the wobbling forced vortex of the mantle sphere, could generate a detectable magnetic field that emanates from its hypocenter, as well as renders electric discharges. And satellite vortices manifested in the liquid iron outer core of the Earth, could cause the magnetic declination of its magnetosphere.

See a Facebook page on "Extending Milankovitch Earthquakes and Eruptions" that studies the drivers for earthquakes and volcano eruptions with magnetism and orbital mechanics.

See the UVS topics on "Tidal bore" that illustrates with qualitative proof on the precession cycle of Sun, Earth, and Moon causes peaking for tidal bore events, "Dual-core crater" that illustrates on some peculiar pit craters could be vortically formed by manifested vortices of liquefied crust, "Cometary outburst" for some illustrations of how energetic barycenters and Lagrangian points could be manifested by celestial objects in the Solar System, and "Sunspot" that illustrates how sunspots could manifest by the arrangements of Solar System objects in their precession cycles.

Analysis of Solar System objects alignment for the 9.0 megathrust earthquake in Japan on 11th Mar 2011 - From the UVS perspective

The planet finder diagram shown below illustrates the sky view from the epicenter of the 9.0 megathrust earthquake that had occurred in Japan on 11th Mar 2011 at 12:46 hour local time. Six Solar System objects were apparently close to each other in the sky view toward the west, an almost lunar perigee Moon was high on top in the epicenter skyview, and the tidal bulge caused by the Moon in its neap tide that leads by about 10-degrees, was supposedly almost aligned with the epicenter.

The Solar System arrangement was triple alignments of aligned Jupiter-Earth-Saturn crossed with aligned Mars-Sun-Earth, and also crossed aligned with Uranus-Mercury-Earth. The almost first phase Moon was about 7 days from lunar perigee (nearest to Earth), and formed a T-junction crossed alignment with the aligned Earth-Sun-Mars.

And most critically in these multiple crossed aligbments, an almost lunar perigee Moon was right on top in the epicenter skyview when the earthquake event occurred.

Although the geology activity could have taken decades to build up for the megathrust earthquake to happen, the triggering mechanism for the event could have been caused by the precession effects of the Solar System alignments. After reaching a tipping point over a period of time with the transferred vortical motion of the mantle, the mantle levitated tectonic plate could snap under the induced positive and negative pressure of a tidal bulge standing wave manifested in the mantle.

In the wake of the tsunami that was caused by a snapped tectonic plate, the jet stream of tsunami could vortically impel whirlpool clusters to manifest at resonated locations.

Volcano eruption

Based on the UVS model, volcanic eruption can be triggered by a manifested forced vortex of mantle sphere, which could be caused by the precession effect of the Earth.

Based on Solar System alignments effect, it evidently elucidates that the direct triggering mechanism for some volcano eruption events, can paradoxically come from the outer space.

From the UVS perspective, when a forced vortex of the mantle sphere underneath Earth's crust is formed as a result of focused torque-induced precession, manifested with the effects of a Solar System objects arrangement, such as a T-junction crossed alignment, its resonated torque-free precession inside the Earth, has significant geological effects.

Evidently, a strong torque-induced precession on Earth, caused by its Solar System alignment effect, could trigger a volcanic eruption with a manifested standing wave formed in the mantle sphere to pressurize the magma chamber underneath a volcanic vent.

The cognitive paradox that negates to render the misconception of volcano eruptions in general, could thus be meticulously resolved with its underlying structure and mechanism explicated.

On 21st May 1792 Unzen volcano erupted, this was cited as Japan's greatest volcano disaster. The Solar System arrangement for this volcano eruption event, was aligned Saturn-Earth-Jupiter-Neptune made T-junction crossed alignment with aligned Uranus-Earth , and crossed aligned with Sun-Moon-Earth.

See "Some volcano eruptions and their alignments of Solar System objects" for some simplified case studies of Solar System objects arrangements for some volcano eruption events.

The case studies illustrate some major volcano eruptions in recent years, could be linked to Solar System alignment effect; these case studies offered strong evidence for aligned Solar System objects with their focused torque-induced precession manifested on a tilted rotating Earth, could trigger volcano eruptions.


A volcano eruption

UVS predicates that some volcano eruptions were triggered by strong torque-induce precession of the Solar System alignment effect.

These are the images of Kilauea volcano in Halemaumau Crater and its lava flow event when the volcano was active.

From the UVS perspective, the 6 kilometers crater could be caused by a forced vortex of mantle sphere that had manifested from beneath the liquefied Earth's crust.

The open crust of an active volcano that was formed by a vortex column, could render recurring volcanic activities with the resonated precession effects of planetary arrangements.

Note: This UVS inductive resolution merely attempts to show the underlying structure and mechanism that could vortically and paradoxically drive earthquakes and volcano eruptions. Despite the suggested vortical motions rendered on lithosphere by the crossed alignments of aligned Solar Sytem objects, could be illustrated as the likely drivers for causing some significant earthquakes and volcano eruptions in the after events with their stochastic analyses, lacking the necessary geological information for the structures and their actual situations underneath the crust, it has thus been conceded that earthquakes and volcano eruptions could not be absolutely predicted with all certainties in such blinded studies. The uncertainties such as location and magnitude also apply to the observed regular monthly pattern of moonquakes, and these are irregardless of the driver for triggering the moonquakes, is always recurring periodically.
