Isn't that on the order of cloud seeding? Somehow, I don't think we have the cumulative explosive power to incite a geological event.Originally posed by Selma in Sandy Eggo:
Didn't I see somewhere that the army or somebody is looking for a nice safe useful place to get rid of some old H.E. bombs? Maybe it was the Air Force?
If we use a little preplanned earth slippage to modify a hill or two, that should stress-relieve the fault, right? Might be a good thing? Practical Earthquake Prevention 101!
Actually, the pressure buildup caused an earthquake, which made the top slip off, which released the pressure. Unless you're not talking about the big blast in 1980.Originally posted by OperaTenor:
Think of the amount of energy it took to blow the top off Mt. St. Helens. That eruption lasted for quite a span of time, and it still wasn't enough power to set off an earthquake or cause any fault slippage on its own.
