Is there something going on with the Pacific tectonic plate?

Terra Bites

Is there something going on with the Pacific tectonic plate that might be getting ready to, oh, you know...crack it?


More quakes down under (the equator) and now we read about the latest 6.3 quake down in Fiji.  Is the mid-Pacific rise about to give rise to more than just the normal growth of the Pacific plate?  That's in the area (great circle-wise) from the Bonin Islands of Japan down to Chile, right?


Or, to put the question in simpler form:  How big can the Pacific Plate get before it breaks of its own internally generated stresses?  I bet a magnitude 10 quake would really be something to tell the grandkids about - if there were any after such a thing.


Oh, and the California and Alaska shake maps continue active with lots of small quakes...
