Relationship between global seismicity and solar activities
The relations between sunspot numbers and earthquakes (M≧6), solar 10.7 cm radio flux and earthquakes, solar proton events and earthquakes have been analyzed in this paper. It has been found that: (1) Earthquakes occur frequently around the minimum years of solar activity. Generally, the earthquake activities are relatively less during the peak value years of solar activity, some say, around the period when magnetic polarity in the solar polar regions is reversed. (2) the earthquake frequency in the minimum period of solar activity is closely related to the maximum annual means of sunspot numbers, the maximum annual means of solar 10.7 cm radio flux and solar proton events of a whole solar cycle, and the relation between earthquake and solar proton events is closer than others.....

Though there have been several attempts at earthquake prediction from different perspectives, this attempt aims at establishing planetary configurations as a definitive means of earthquake prediction. When two or more planets, Sun and Moon are aligned more or less in line (0o or 180o) with the Earth, then the Earth would be caught in the middle of a huge gravity struggle between the Sun and the planets. The gravitational stresses would change the speed of the Earth in its orbit and when the speed of rotation of the earth changes the tectonic plate motion also gets affected. T he total angular momentum of planets involved in earthquake triggering mechanism can be calculated and the total force acting at the epicenter in a direction opposite to that of the earth’s rotation can also be determined. At the epicenter, the speed of rotation of the earth can be calculated with the help of available software. So the planetary forces in the opposite direction to the rotation of earth act as a triggering mechanism for the accumulated stress at faults and plate boundaries to be released abruptly. T his does not, however, mean that earthquakes will occur at all edges of the plate boundaries. Two of the parameters contributing to the triggering of an earthquake at a place are a) distance of epicenter from the planet position and b) direction of force acting at the possible epicenter. From the analysis of “ significant earthquakes” over the past 100 years from all over the world and from Southern Peninsular India, the relationship between (i) latitude, longitude, and magnitude of the tremor and (ii) distance from the planet and direction of forces acting at any point can be inferred. Such inferences already made for different localities in other parts of world have unfolded an accuracy of more than 75% with regard to earthquake prediction.

Changes in the Earth's rate of rotation are evident by comparing time kept by the rotating Earth, known as universal time, to uniform time scales based upon atomic clocks, known as either atomic time,or upon the motion of the Moon and other celestial bodies,known as ephemeris time.
Such comparisons have shown that the Earth's rate of rotation is not constant but exhibits changes
on the order of a few parts in108 with the largest amplitude variations occurring over decades...
Earth and ocean tidal terms have been removed from the derived length-of-day values and the lunar occultation measurements were adjusted be consistent with the most recent estimate the tidal acceleration to of the Moon... trs-new.jpl.nasa.gov...

Dude give it a rest...serious # is about to go down and with the energy that the Tsunamis are bringing to the west coast it is only common sense that those same energy waves will ride through the coast and trigger a chain reaction that is leading up to Yellowstone.

Well GEE. (get it?)
I guess I have failed you all ATS because I did not prep my little post enough up to ATS standards in the midst of a crisis and caught up in so many other things at the same time.
But I do thank the mod who understood, and just gave me applause for the thread. Guess it wasn't all that bad, huh?
In the meantime, there is still definite, local INCREASED seismic activity happening at YS right now, even though it is small. My concern still stands that something has activated.

Yellowstone is showing serious seismic activity now, and it appears to be originating from the park.
Oh no... Pray peoples.
We can't see much of anything right now cause of all the huge S-waves. Will need further confirmation....BUT THIS DOES NOT LOOK GOOD.edit on Fri Mar 11th 2011 by TrueAmerican because: (no reason given)
