535 Global Earthquakes Between 1973 and 2011.

September 6, 2011 – 535 Global Earthquakes From 1973 to 2011: The graph reflects 535 global earthquakes, with a Magnitude of 7.0 or greater, that occurred between January 1, 1973 and September 6, 2011. The earthquakes are plotted by ending digit. For example, earthquakes plotted above the “1” bar represent years that end in the number one; i.e. 1981, 1991, 2001 and 2011. During those “1” years their were 56 earthquakes, as shown by the white number on the red bar. The “2” years had 48 quakes, etc.
Some say that years ending in certain numbers, for example “0,” have more earthquakes than other years. The numbers in the graph, range from a low of 46 in “8” years (1978, 1988, 1998 & 2008) to a high of 61 in “0” years. While their is a variance, in the number of earthquakes per year, is it statistically significant? Various statistical measures, used on the data, suggest their is something going on that “causes” some years to have more (or less) earthquakes than other years. According to this graph, we should see a reduction in the number of major quakes, when we move into 2012 (a two year) and out of 2011 (a one year).
One of my goals, in this blog, is to find out what that something is? I am keenly interested in forecasting earthquakes, in terms of the place, date and magnitude. Stay tuned to the “Chaos” blog for the latest analysis and forecasts for the future.
