Excuse my ignorance, but is there a correlation between increased solar activity and earthquakes?

Thanks in advance

I've noticed a few websites I go to have gone down today.

Has anyone else noticed this? Satellites messing up?

Will this get worse?

Or is this just a coincidence?

Sorry I'm all questions. . .

Not everything is a conspiracy by the government. Somethings... maybe, but not every little bad thing that happens.

Well so I agree not everything is a gov. conspiracy buttt check this out...

Its Jesse Ventura's show about gov. conspiracies so think what you may, but i think i kno...

There have been a number of attempts to correlate earthquakes to solar activity (among other things) but there really seems to be no relationship.

Hopefully there will be no major earthquakes in the Kentucky area. The new Madrid fault from what I've been told is supposed to be getting a big one

43 significant earthquakes

steady increase 2002 -2010

72 significant earthquakes

already 8

I have one more addition to this discussion. Does the HAARP experiment known as the blue spiral over Norway connect with the timing of this? If so, how and even why?

EDIT: I see howie82788 you already went down this path. Thanks, I'll check out your link.

significant maybe, but if we look at quakes over magnitude 7.0, the figures tell a much more normal story -

1990 - 18
1991 - 16
1992 - 13
1993 - 12
1994 - 13
1995 - 20
1996 - 15
1997 - 16
1998 - 12
1999 - 18
2000 - 15
2001 - 16
2002 - 13
2003 - 15
2004 - 16
2005 - 11

this list goes back to 1900 and the figures are fairly stable from then til now.

One has to wonder what criteria are used in determining what a "significant" earthquake is on those lists. It seems to be quite subjective. I see quakes of less than magnitude 4.0 listed.

The Norway spiral was not a HAARP experiment and it is not connected with solar activity or the magnetosphere.

2006 - 10
2007 - 17
2008 - 12
2009 - 18

Jan 2010 - 2

These are all 7.0 or more. The link below will show all significant earthquakes by year.

It looks more interesting like this:

Nice chart - are those all over 7.0?

It actually makes it look unusually quiet in the last couple of decades?! Hope that doesn't mean a ramp up in activity is due.

If there is one thing that I have learned in this world is that every thing is connected one way or the other, just because we do not see the interconnection in front of our face does not mean that they don't exist but only we are not aware of how it does affect us and the planet.

Every signal partial that moves in our existence has an interaction with something else and that reaction is pushed down the line until it loops back on to it's self. As for solar storms affecting us I believe they play a bigger roll than we give them, for we can not see it but it's there.

These regions of low (and high) speed solar wind radiate from the Sun as it spins creating something like spiral arms moving away from sun.




You'll set the nutters off!

Yes, over 7.0.

Solar activity seemed very high around 2001. The auroral displays up here were non stop and quite spectacular. We were rewarded with quite a few bright enough to overcome the city lights even as far south as Anchorage and beyond. I believe that was the year of the ones that were seen clear down to Arizona. Or was that 2000? My brain cells are slowing these days.

Looking at that graph it would seem to say that increased solar activity equals less powerful earthquakes.

Of course that would not hold true for previous solar cycles so it is nonsense and non-evidence.

Keep a look out for Earthquake and Volcano activity, I have been following RTMS for a while now. Normally when we see anything close to the Solar Activity now we see Quakes.

Thank you so much. Very beneficial to compose scientific knowledge as such.

This activity is not unusual at all and as Phage has suggested, we may well see this again when the Sun comes around again. I would venture to say that it is quite likely that we will be seeing a bit more of this in the short to medium term.

We also see this kind of effect on the magnetosphere even if sunspots are not facing Earth directly.

S&F though for keeping your eyes peeled OP
