  • RE: Periodic slow slip triggers megathrust zone earthquakes in northeastern Japan

    Article already being trashed by jealous """experts" who didn't think of it first. Paper is a first cut new finding that needs further investigation but they are all trying to knit pick it to death as if the auththors claiming claimed to have it all worked out to perfection. Authors didn't but proffessional jealous ones are putting words in there mouth. See VOA's article to see what I mean:

    Competing Interests: I am a Californian sick and tired of all the desperate infighting on earthquake research just to get attention
