The following report from Piers Corbyn is the current Earthquake and Volcano Red Warning "Trial" for June 2012:
WeatherAction - Solar Lunar Action Technique (from SLAT8 parameters 29 May)
Red Warning periods – are now standardized R1 to R5 (most extreme effect). In WeatherAction Solar Lunar Action Technique they indicate Solar-Lunar drivers of thunderstorm and related extreme events around the world. Extreme weather event risk Periods such as thunder/tornado (espec USA) development & potential Tropical Storm Formation periods are consequences of these drivers and are also periods in which standard meteorology models will notably underestimate strength of deluges, thunder, snow etc in forecasts from a day or so ahead. In these periods typically standard meteorology forecast (smf) estimates of rain/snow from a day or so ahead need to be doubled (or more for R5). Dates are UTC for estimation although there are uncertainties. FORECAST MAPS & detailed forecasts with corresponding specific likely weather events are issued for various parts of the world. Lesser extreme (‘Extra Activity’) and ‘Quiet periods’ and likely consequent weather scenarios are stated therein.
Major Earthquake Trial Risk Periods are in 2 categories, Q and q (with Q>q expected but the relationship is noisy). Volcano risk is similarly and v (V>v). These combine to give QV, Qv etc periods. Periods are largely the same as or overlap with Red warning weather periods and are not specific to any particular Earthquake prone region or location except SLAT 7A and SLAT 8 (from June 1st) may give some preferred earth hemispheres – see table. Q periods should give ~M6.0 & above earthquakes (Red on US Geological Survey) eg as on earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eqinthenews & associated volcanism and increase of lesser quakes in low average quake level regions.
M6.0 is a conventional convenience. Other measures (eg M5.7+, M6.5+, M7+) can be considered.
SLAT 8 gives some extra indications of Quake strengths and perhaps more likely hemispheric regions (trials) of extra quakes / Volcs.
For those of you who follow this report I will also monitor the "powering up and down" of any Hurricanes and Typhoons in the R4 and R5 periods....Piers additional comments.... TS formation will be significant in the two R5 periods indicatig a high risk for Huricane and Typhoons.
The FIRST PERIOD falls on the Transit of Venus
