Manasa and I have been wondering why the low frequency seismic noise has been different in the last few days/weeks. I went over to visit the Rock Monster, a.k.a. the Earth Surface Dynamics Laboratory next door, and the grad student turned it up for me (increased water flow significantly) for a few minutes. Then I came back to look at the BLRMS, and you can see the low frequency increase a few minutes ago, when he turned it up on high. He said that they run it on low almost all the time, 9am-5pm ish, and on high for an hour or so at a time periodically during the day.
