Twin Geothermal Blessings for a Highly Urbanized City PDF Print E-mail
GEOLOGICALLY, A fault is not a mistake. It is like a fracture in orthopaedics but a break in stone, not in bone. In geology a fracture is a break in a rock formation. A rock formation is not just a pile of rocks. They make up land masses such as mountains. If the rocks on either or both sides of the plane of a fracture moves, that fracture is called a “fault”. Earthquakes shake the land because they move rock formations along faults. They also break up the land and create faults. Fault lengths are measured in kilometers, the Philippine Fault spans the whole length of our archipelago. Two fault lines - the Balsahan fault and the Montible fault -bound the north and south side respectively of Puerto Princesa Bay; from Sta. Lourdes and Sta. Lucia respectively in the Sulu Sea Coast to the mountains of Iwahig, passing by Balsahan and Montible rivers respectively. Millions of years ago, mainland Palawan didn’t have an inlet where Puerto Princesa Bay now exists (that bay did not exist before). Then a series of earthquakes over a long period of time (measured in millions of years) and occurring perhaps once every century, created the Balsahan and Montible faults and moved the rocks on both sides of them. During that time the land where Puerto Princesa Bay is now, gradually moved down relative to the land north and south of the faults respectively; eventually sinking under the surface of the sea, thus creating the bay. Both of these fault planes reach deep down to the molten bowels of the Earth and from there warm fluids rise to the surface, heating the ground water, and flow out as the Sta Lourdes in the north side of the bay, and the Sta. Lucia in the south side of the bay, hot springs.
