Looking at the HAARP Fluxgate Magnetometer charts from just before the magnitude 9.0 earthquake of Japan up until today, reveals some interesting results while comparing the earth’s magnetic field with earthquakes that occurred during that time frame.
The fluxgate magnetometer was built by the University of Alaska, Geophysical Institute, and is operating at the HAARP ionospheric observatory in Gakona, Alaska. The three traces represent components of the earth’s magnetic field as follows:
The “H” component (black trace) is positive magnetic northward
The “D” component (red trace) is positive eastward
The “Z” component (blue trace) is positive downward
Geomagnetic storminess is usually indicated in oscillatory variations in the earth’s magnetic field.
Since earthquakes result from tectonic plate movement, and tectonic plates are adrift atop a slurry of hot magma, all of which jostle about on top of the earth’s iron core – the interaction of which creates a dynamo effect generating the earth’s magnetic field… one wonders if sudden changes or ‘storminess’ in this magnetic field could possibly correlate up to the surface in the form of earthquakes. It may be a stretch, but in one sense it seems somewhat logical.
Looking at the first chart, we see two distinct periods of active magnetic change. Within this grouping we can see several magnitude 6+ earthquakes followed by the big one in Japan, a magnitude 9.0.
(Earthquakes listed in the charts are the USGS categorized ‘significant’ quakes from their earthquake listings)
The second chart reveals a period of active magnetic change followed by several magnitude 6+ quakes including a 7.1 Aftershock of the Japan earthquake.
The third chart brings us up until today, May 2, and as you can see there is significant active magnetism occurring that began on April 30. This activity is on par with the other ‘significant’ periods, and if there is any correlation, then one might expect a large earthquake within the next week or so, or perhaps several magnitude 6+ quakes.
As you can also see, there are a few earthquakes that have not occurred near these magnetic anomalies, which may disprove this notion altogether. However, let’s wait and see (we have no choice).
