A correlation is found when an earthquake sometimes follows a flare within a range of 10-100 hours? Shower syndrome.
Our investigation preliminarily shows that each earthquake under study was preceded by a solar flare of GOES importance B to X class by 10-100 hrs. However, each flare was not found followed by earthquake of magnitude ¡Ý4.0
They then hand pick 50 of those "correlations" to study in detail?
Our detailed study of 50 earthquakes associated with solar flares observed by SOXS mission and other wavebands revealed many interesting results such as the location of the flare on the Sun and the delay time in the earthquake and its magnitude.
Here we present evidence that the same empirical laws widely accepted in seismology characterize, surprisingly, also the size and time occurrence of solar flares. In particular
the same temporal clustering holds both for earthquake, where it is known as the Omori law, and solar flare catalogues: a mainflare triggers a sequence of afterflares.
This could greatly improve the prediction of violent space weather and the understanding of the physical processes behind solar events.

This sounds bad. Better check on your end of the world supplies! All I have is beer and potato chips and a couple girlie mags but that's all I need.

I believe if a flare was the strength of the "Carrington" event
It would not take two days.. more like less than 24 hours
Phage?edit on 1-12-2012 by Lil Drummerboy because: (no reason given)
From August 28, 1859, until September 2, numerous sunspots and solar flares were observed on the sun. Just before noon on September 1, the British astronomer Richard Carrington observed the largest flare, which caused a major coronal mass ejection (CME) to travel directly toward Earth, taking 17 hours. Such a journey normally takes three to four days. This second CME moved so quickly because the first one had cleared the way of the ambient solar wind plasma.
