  • TITLE: Does the sun trigger earthquakes?

    AUTHORS: Carlos A. Vargas, Emanuel D. Kastle

    KEYWORDS: Solar Cycles; Earthquakes; Geomagnetism; Earthquake Prediction

    JOURNAL NAME: Natural Science, Vol.4 No.8A, August 14, 2012

    ABSTRACT: Tavares and Azevedo [1] showed in their article, that there existed a correlation between the solar cycles and the earthquake activity. In their study they used both ancient records, as well as recent seismicity between 1950 and 2010. According to them, a possible link between solar activity and earthquake occurrence is the magnetic field of the earth, that is being changed in shape corresponding to the solar cycles and thus exerts a pressure on the earth’s crust. This study tries to test their results by means of correlation and cointegration, not only using recent solar and earthquake data, but also taking measurements of the Earth’s magnetic field strength into account. The results presented in this work show no clear connection between the seismicity and the 11-year solar cycles. The data rather indicates an anti-periodicity. It is not excluded, that few strong CME events can influence the triggering of earthquake events, however, this effect is presumably small and plays only a minor roll in the faulting process.
