The Haiti earthquake was 5.9 and occured at 11:03 (several hours before the minor activity shown on the magnetometer trace).
The Mexico/Guatamala earthquake (offshore) was 4.9 and occurred at 09:32 (again, before the activity).
There is no relationship between earthquakes and HAARP or magnetospheric activity.
Is there a relationship between solar events and earthquakes?
The question of a solar disturbance/magnetic field change related to earthquakes has been thoroughly investigated and found to be unproven.
An international meeting of scientists was convened in London from November 7 to 8, 1996, on the subject of relationships of earthquakes to other phenomena for prediction purposes. Papers of that meeting appeared in the Geophysical Journal International, vol. 131, pgs. 413 to 533, 1997. (Perhaps you should read those articles and the summary by Geller). The consensus of the meeting was that prediction was not possible. As Main points out in Nature (vol 385, pg 19-20, 1997) "Modern theories of earthquakes hold that they are critical, or self-organized critical, phenomena, implying a system maintained permanently on the edge of chaos, with an inherently random element and avalanche dynamics with strong sensitivity to small stress perturbations."
Geller, a prominent seismologist at the University of Tokyo who continues to research the possible earthquake relationships to other natural phenomena, reports "The chaotic, highly nonlinear nature of the earthquake source process makes prediction and inherently unrealizable goal." If you believe that you have some solid first-hand evidence, perhaps you should write to Geller to bring yourself up-to-date on this subject (Dr. Robert, Dept. of Earth and Planetary Physics, Graduate School of Science, Tokyo University, Hongo 7-3-1, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo 113-0033 JAPAN).
I have found no evidence of a significant relationship between the phenomena you talk about. Perhaps you should read my last book, "Introduction to Geomagnetic Fields" (Cambridge Unversity Press, 1997) which discusses the realistic relationships of the solar activity to processes on Earth. --Wallace H.
