This Level is the only Level that is a little bit difficult -just a little-, but it’s very important for the understanding of an earthquake continuity. Here we will learn how to exclude from our list the locations that do not belong to the basin we are studying. As we said on the page “How to create ‘The Greek System Table’ for earthquake prediction =/> 6R. Step by step.”, we will study here the biggest Basin around the world, the Pacific’s Basin. There are two more “Big Basins” (the Euro-India’s Basin -the second largest- & the Atlantic’s Basin -the third largest-) & countless smaller “Local Basins”.
The general idea is simple and has two parts:
a) When the ice melted on the Earth, the water eroded the ground and created cavities, such as underground/undersea basins and caves, as well as “passages” such us underground/undersea rivers etc..
b) When a large amount of Energy is transmitted to the Earth’s crust, a small percentage of this Energy will be absorbed by the Earth’s crust while the rest of the Energy will penetrate the Earth’s crust and enter the Earth’s Mantle. As this great amount of Energy enters the Earth’s Mantle, it is trapped. So, the Energy begins to move between the Earth’s crust and the Earth’s Core until it finds a way through a Volcano or a Ridge to the Earth’s surface and extinguishes.
We will not analyze further how the Energy transmitted and trapped between Earth’s crust and core and how the Energy acts when it is in the mantle because we are here to play and learn how to create the board. Just keep in your mind two things:
-“When the Energy passes through the crust to the Earth’s mantle, it looks like a ‘ball’ that is moving between crust & core -it looks like specific as an ‘Energy Arkanoid’, such as the old classic Arkanoid game- and each time that the moving Energy hits on something solid, we have a vibration that we call ‘Earthquake’ -that’s why we see Earthquakes on Depths 0-600+km and if you watch the earthquakes’ continuity, you will see that the Energy is moving Up/Down and Parallel-. The moving Energy will not stop moving between crust & core, and manifest Earthquakes, until it reaches the Earth’s surface through a Volcano -Volcanic Eruption- or an Earthquake =/> 5R on a Ridge and lose some of its power. As the moving Energy ‘hits’ the ‘Lithosphere’, it curves it and creates some new cavities & ridges“, and
-“Don’t forget that the Energy chooses always the ‘easy path’. That means that the Moving Energy, will not pass easily to another Basin. If, for example, it is trapped in the Pacific’s Big Basin, it will stay there for a long time and it will manifest many major Earthquakes on the Locations that we will see on the next image and that belong to the field of the Pacific’s Basin”
The Locations in the green area, belong to the Pacific’s Big Basin. All the other locations (with pink color), not.

The 34 Locations that belong to the Pacific’s Basin:
1) Every place in the Pacific Ocean (like Hawaii)
2) Every place in & around the Gulf of Alaska
3) The west coastline of Canada (close to Alaska’s Gulf)
4) West coastline of US
7) El Salvador
11) Costa Rica
13) The areas around the Caribbean Sea
18) West Bolivia
20) West Argentina
21) South Pacific Ocean
22) New Zealand
23) East coastline of Australia (Australia belongs to Euro-India’s Basin)
24) Papua New Guinea
29) East coastline of China
32) Sea of Okhotsk
33) Everything in & around the Bering Sea
Any other Place DOESN’T belong to the Pacific’s Basin!
Tip 1: If the Location is not on the list of “The 34 Locations that belong to the Pacific’s Basin”, you must fill the cell with the Pink Color, because we have to exclude this Place from our list. On the Greek System’s Table, we fill the whole line with Pink Color when a Location does not belong to the Basin we are studying. That helps us to see clearly the earthquake continuity.
Tip 2: It’s easier to find a Location if you see the Country. See these examples to understand what we are looking first.
Yellow color for 1) Every place in the Pacific Ocean (like Hawaii), 2) Every place in & around the Gulf of Alaska, 3) The west coastline of Canada (close to Alaska’s Gulf), 4) West coastline of US, 5) Mexico, 6) Guatemala, 7) El Salvador, 8) Honduras, 9) Nicaragua, 10) Belize, 11) Costa Rica, 12) Panama, 13) The areas around the Caribbean Sea, 14) Venezuela, 15) Colombia, 16) Ecuador, 17) Peru, 18) West Bolivia, 19) Chile, 20) West Argentina, 21) South Pacific Ocean, 22) New Zealand, 23) East coastline of Australia (Australia belongs to Euro-India’s Basin), 24) Papua New Guinea, 25) Timor, 26) Indonesia, 27) Thailand, 28) Vietnam, 29) East coastline of China, 30) Taiwan, 31) Japan, 32) Sea of Okhotsk, 33) Everything in & around the Bering Sea, 34) Philippines.
Pink color for any other Place! ( Because it DOESN’T belong to the Pacific’s Basin and we have to exclude it!)
Drag the Places from the left to match them with the corresponding color on the right!
It wasn’t that difficult, right? See below an image by the “Greek System Table”. On this game, you have learned how to recognize the Places and the Earthquakes that don’t belong to the Earthquake Continuity we are watching on the USGS’ list. Click on the image below and see the “Pink Lines”. That’s how will looks like your Table at the end.
Tip 1: The columns that we don’t use the Pink Color, are just three; a) Kind of Earthquake & HDM, b) Type or Rule & c) Prediction of What is coming & When. We fill with Pink Color all the other cells on the same line with the “Place” which it doesn’t belong to the Basin we study)
Tip 2: If you don’t know where is a Place, you can search it on https://firstname.lastname@example.org,-166.790916,3z. For example, there are locations on the USGS list, that confuse us. We don’t know exactly until we search for them on the map, such as “Caucasus region, Russia” (A big part of the Coastline of Russia belongs to the Pacific’s Basin, but if you search for this Place specific, you will see that is out of the Pacific’s Basin field) or “western Sichuan, China” (Again, a big part of the Coastline of China belongs to the Pacific’s Basin, but if you search for this Place specific, you will see that is out of the Pacific’s Basin field). So, if you are not sure for a Place, search it on Google maps and find as well the location on “The Pacific’s Big Basin image. ↓”.
We are finished with the “Places”! Let’s go now to the next Level!
