Reposting as I incorrectly identified it as subduction! This formation is in Green River, Utah and is visible from the highway. They are four small mountains, going east to west in a row. (Top to bottom in the photo).

Why is the Earth "overdue" for so many natural disasters (i.e. Ice Age, Cascadia subduction, Yellowstone)?

Is there something happening that's significantly delaying the natural period of these events?

Day 8030: Okay, my turn to check in. I'm Subduction, the founder of r/leaves, and today marks 22 years free of smoking weed. I'll be checking in throughout the day, so if you have any questions about me, recovery, the sub, or anything at all feel free to ask away!

Hi everybody! Today is twenty-two years without drugs or alcohol, and I'm living proof that even though it can feel impossible to change when you are in active addiction, just the simple act of asking someone for help can start you on the road to getting better.

I am also living proof that life has unimaginable rewards waiting for you if you do.

I've read every single one of your posts and comments, every day, since the subreddit started. A reddit search engine says that's well over 800,000, and every single day each one of you reminds me why we all come here to help each other.

I'm proud of each one of you, and have complete confidence that no matter how you might feel at this moment in time, your future is setting itself you be a happy, optimistic, and truly wonderful place.

If you have any questions I might be able to answer about me, the sub, recovery, or whatever you like feel free to ask.

Thank you all for the inspiration you give me every day.

EDIT: Wow, thank you so much for the replies! I will get to every one, I promise, it just might take me a little time. Stay tuned!

[TIL] the "Big One," the maximum upper-limit of the San Andreas fault is estimated to be 8.2, which is only 6% as powerful as the earthquake that struck Tohoku (Fukushima), Japan because the Richter scale is logarithmic. Both will be dwarfed by a Cascadia subduction zone quake. newyorker.com/magazine/20…

The Cascadia Subduction zone is a plate boundary that stretches from Vancouver to Northern California, and has the potential to kills thousands of people and destroy cities if it produces a major earthquake.

New evidence shows that Earth’s first continents were not formed by subduction in a modern-like plate tectonics environment, as previously thought. The research indicates that the early continents were created by an entirely different process that has not yet been identified. pubs.geoscienceworld.org/…

What does a subduction zone earthquake feel like?

I'm interested in what it feels like to experience a subduction zone earthquake. For example, if the Cascadia subduction zone has a full-margin rupture (i.e., the "really big one"), the North American plate can lurch 30+ feet west and drop about 6 feet vertically. I live in the Portland area, and I was sitting on my porch the other day and these numbers caught my imagination. What would happen if there was a huge quake when I was on my porch? Is it correct to think that the ground (and therefore the porch) would jump 30 feet west and drop by 6 feet -- and therefore pull itself from under my feet, and I would go tumbling off the edge of my porch? Or if I was a few feet from a wall, would the wall come crashing into me? Or am I totally misunderstanding what happens in a subduction zone quake, and the actual subjective experience is just one of intense shaking? (i.e., maybe the actual "lurch to the west" happens slowly enough that you just get carried along with the plate?)

With the 7.7 earthquake in Oaxaca today, it's probably a good time to consider your preparedness for a Cascadia Subduction Zone quake. The shaking in videos of today's quake are about what we will experience if the epicenter happens off the Oregon coast. There are still six months in 2020. pnsn.org/outreach/earthqu…

If a landmass is on an oceanic plate that is subducting, what happens as it approaches the subduction zone?

I'm having trouble visualizing this interaction. I'm sure I learned it in school, but I can't for the life of me remember. I can't think of anywhere this interaction is currently occurring off the top of my head.

I'm presuming a continent size landmass just grinds the subduction process to a halt then collides with whatever is on the non-subbducting side ala India slamming into Asia? What about a smaller landmass? Say something the size of Madagascar or New Guinea? Is there a tectonic process of transferring middling landmasses from one large plate to another large plate without the plates merging? What about smallish islands, say from a hotsot, how do they survive interaction with a subduction zone, or do they?

What happens if the continent is somehow on the plate being subducted under? Say, an Australia being subducted under an Indonesian-style volcanic arc. If that's even possible I assume there'd be some sort of minor orogeny and merger?
