Geophysical situation as of June 26

Global indicators

On June 26 anomalous Earth rotational mode (Earth rotational parameters anomaly) originated on June 21–22 is still being observed. Marked on the figure trajectory fragment is uncharacteristic. It is nearly horizontal during 6 days.

WBG system is still registering HF anomalies, being observed also after Solomon islands earthquake on June 26 (Magnitude 6.7 - SOLOMON ISLANDS 2010 June 26 05:30:19 UTC). These data show that strong events are yet to come.

Let's especially note, a short-term precursor of Solomon Islands earthquake, shown on the figure below. It is HF precursor (observed on all WBG system channels), which originates around 02:00 UTC on June 26, about 3.5 hours before the earthquake.

Indicators in the Greece area

In Greece in last days seismic activity abruptly increased in the region located northeasterly of Creete island. During 25th–26th of June, 15 earthquakes with M3–4 (earthquakes parameters are taken from the EMSC database) have occurred:

Earthquakes in the Creete region on June 25–June 26, 2010

Earthquakes in the Creete region on June 25–June 26, 2010

Very interesting question emerges: are these foreshocks or shocks but accounting previously ruptured during previous epochs of planet evolution part of lithosphere?

On the figure below activated area in the Creete region is marked by white rectangle.

In the result of cooperation between experts of RC EOM, our group and several foreign scientists being a members of the task group, it were revealed several EQ clouds in the Greece area.

Below on the images of Terra satellite of June 22 and June 25 it shown square-like structure located northeasterly of Creete island. This structure is an indicator of the mentioned above seismic processes near Creete. First structure appeared on June 22 is the precursor of these processes.

On the image of Aqua satellite of 06/23/2010 it show EQ clouds set above the Ionian sea (between south of Peloponnesus Penisula and Sicily). Linear structure on this image was also shown in the message Geophysical situation as of June 23. It is also can be observed on the first of the shown above Terra satellite images (marked by yellow ellipse). Linear structure directly adjoins square-like.

On June 25 square-like EQ cloud was observed above Aegean sea, shown below on the image of Aqua satellite.

Extremely tense situation in Greece area is still remaining. Observed anomalies set shows that we are immediately before the event.
