Mysterious "Freezing" of FNMOC's SST Maps

November 15, 2006

Since November 12, FNMOC's Sea Surface Temperature Anomaly maps — the base maps I use to interpret earthquake forecasts — have been unavailable. To be fair, the Navy has this statement on their front page:

"Public access to FNMOC products is provided as a courtesy and as such, may be subject to periods of unavailability."

This is obviously one of those times.

Curiously, previously when their daily maps have been delayed and I've contacted the person in charge, there has either been a speedy upload of the current map or a reasonable explanation given. To date, three days later, there has been dead silence and no maps.

Based on my forecast dating back to November 3, the maps show a huge increase in seismic pressures from New Zealand to Western Samoa to New Guinea to the Philippines to Japan and to the Kuril Islands down to the Marianas Trench. (see map below) The southwestern and western Ring of Fire is showing very active. People in the areas should be on the alert for quakes and tsunamis. —Stan Deyo of
