Could LA's Big One be even bigger than we thought? Now explosive helium is leaking from massive earthquake fault under Los Angeles

A huge fault in the Earth's crust near Los Angeles is leaking helium, researchers have found.

They say the unexpected find sheds new light on the Newport-Inglewood Fault Zone in the Los Angeles Basin.

It reveals the fault is far deeper than previously thought, and a quake would be far more devastating.

It follows a report from the U.S. Geological Survey has warned the risk of 'the big one' hitting California has increased dramatically. 

When Boles and his co-authors analyzed the 24 gas samples, they found that high levels of 3He inversely correlate with carbon dioxide (CO2), which Boles noted acts as a carrier gas for 3He. 

An analysis showed that the CO2 was also from the mantle, confirming leakage from deep inside the Earth.

Blueschist found at the bottom of nearby deep wells indicates that the Newport-Inglewood fault is an ancient subduction zone - where two tectonic plates collide - even though its location is more than 40 miles west of the current plate boundary of the San Andreas Fault System. 

Found 20 miles down, blueschist is a metamorphic rock only revealed when regurgitated to the surface via geologic upheaval.

it always shows before a eruption

that's the explosion

 

Actually, it comes out of the ground fairly constantly in fault zones, but in greater abundance during fault slippage or volcanic eruptions.

Whoever penned the title for the article just annoyed me with the uber-hype BS use of the word "explosive".

And this would be a bad thing because......? I would consider the loss of a few million dumbass liberal turds and their socialist agenda a good start.

it would be funny to find the leaking helium every eartquake reseacher there would speak in a high pitched voice "oi there is a earthquake coming" and then laughing in a high pitched stoned laugh.
