Greenland Seismic Activity Are the Earthquakes Related to Glacier Melting
Tectonic Plates on the Earth Crust move a little bit and we little humans living on the surface can feel this and we have named the more abrupt movements Earthquakes. Earthquakes can be triggered when there is stress on a fault line and it gives way to slippage of any type.What can cause the stress to give way? Well how about storm surges, volcanic flows or changes in weight distribution on the plate itself? Indeed it would have to be one heck of a lot of weight to change that much right? Sure, but what if it was caused by glaciers melting? Global Warming or Climate Change causing Earthquakes, well surely we are getting into theory here aren't we?.Well perhaps although this topic did come up recently in an online think tank when one member Swift from Las Vegas stated; "I was reading about earthquakes that are happening beneath the glaciers in Greenland doubling in the past 4 years.
Of course, this is related, they say to the melting ice sheet. However, since the area around Iceland is seismic, I wonder why they don't look at the existing faults and plates in the area, first. Faults are not necessarily a constant, as new ones are being discovered all the time.
".Can it be that in fact the rapid glacier melt from increased temperatures in the area is causing a change in the weight distribution on the tectonic plate there? Greenland has seen a lot of increased Seismic Activity in the last few years. Are these Earthquakes related to Glacier Melting and therefore to climate change? Consider this in 2006.."Lance Winslow" - Online Think Tank forum board. If you have innovative thoughts and unique perspectives, come think with Lance; http://www.WorldThinkTank.net/wttbbs/.
