The only problem is that the Sun is in a quiet phase and the impending Solar Maximum is VERY much lower than the previous one and many in the past.

You can clearly see from the image below that the trend is downwards at present:



How then can one equate supposed increased earthquake activity with the heliospheric magnetic field?

The correlation between the sun and earthquakes has been questioned by members of this thread and an exercise carried out to ascertain whether there is indeed and connection. Unfortunately it is not possible to say that there is. The main problem is that there are many earthquakes and many solar flares and the chances of them coinciding in a given time span are high, but that does NOT prove a connection.

There is much said about the solar flare that supposedly set off the Tohoku earthquake, however I have to say that I don't see any correlation here except coincidence.



I have many more like this as I am in the process of comparing all of the Gakona records for as far back as i can go to all the earthquake records,

Here is another taster:



I am hoping to have several years of data by the time I have finished - but it takes much time to do these. I can say however that already on less than a years data I don't see a match, but I will hold off on a final opinion until I have finished the study.

ETA: The link for the top graph can be found here:

Leif Svalgaard's Research Page

It is the 4th slide in the ppt titled: 1090 Historical Solar Cycle Context.ppt (WHI II Workshop, Boulder, 2009)

Also available form that site as: Historical Solar Cycle Context (PDF). The pages in the PDF are orientated wrongly, but if you load it into Acrobat Reader rather than reading it on the web page you can rotate them.

I am interested in what's going on in Puerto Rico, the quakes seem to be migrating and today we have a small cluster between the islands. And everything is south of the plate line. Watching closely.

Well I don't recall it, have enough on my NZ plate

So what is the significance?

An addition?, revision down? revision up? or no change?

They do add quakes later once they do some digging, even mag 4's and 5's, as was seen with the "new" Southern Ocean quakes last month.

GeonetNZ are pretty anal about decimal points, many quakes are revised by 0.001 magnitude, but its still a revision


Example: for the 10th January 2011 there have been 41 additions, 27 revised down and 13 revised up, taking the total number of earthquakes for that 24 hr period from 40 to 81


I've been at this for a month now, just when I have some spare time, its a lot of work.
NZEQ Revisions

Someone should do the same for the US/Alaska

That Balleny quake wasn't one of the "mystery quakes" then?, I thought I had saved the graphs, but only the ones on the 18/06 and 27/06/2011

Can't see how they downgraded the Fiji one, there are a lot of 6.0+ readings on the phase data. I guess the more stations they get data from later the more likely the magnitude will be revised down.

Do Fiji and Japan just bounce of each other or is that just an impression?
And then there's the little cluster in Christchurch again this morning. Another 5+ on it's way in the next couple of days?

What is the relevence of the bouys


There is no significant change in the depths that I can see, most of the bouys vary twice a day by 1-2 metres.

Thats called TIDES

Yup, lots of sixes. Still averaging one every couple of days so, what are you saying?

I stated there would not be another mega-quake off Japan this year (8.5+) not that there would be no 6+ to 8.4-, but I also said that it was unlikely there would be anything bigger than a 7.5

So far it seems to be listening to me

Yeah, right off the shore of Fukushima. I wonder if it has affected the precarious state of the reactors?
