Global Earthquakesa by Year, 1973 to 2011.

February 26, 2012 –  5,330 Global Earthquakes by Year: I downloaded 5,330 global earthquakes, greater than or equal to (>=) 6.0 magnitude, and graphed them in a bar chart seen above.
As you can see, their is clearly an upward trend in the number of quakes, as shown by the linear best fit line in red. Additionally, their is a significant drop off in the 1980’s, especially 1989, 1986, 1984 and 1982. Why this is I do not know.
Some of the increase may be due to increased awareness through the world-wide digital age.
I was going to post a graph showing the Power 10X and Strength 32X scales by month, however, they would have been heavily skewed for the months of March (Japan – March 11, 2011) and December (Sumatra – December 26, 2004).

    Hi Bill

    Per an initial, cursory look at this graph, what comes much to mind
    is a 20 yr cycle with some of the peaks in this graph. In Mundane
    lingo, this would correspond to a Solar, 19 yr Cycle (different from
    the 11 yr Sunspot Cycle). More significantly, this ties into a model
    I’ve been researching per the 19 year Metonic Cycle, which aligns with
    eclipses- yielding this period as an actual ‘life-cycle’ for any eclipse
    (series) to the same Zodiac degree area; and which overshadows more
    classical interps of just the duration of any eclipse relating to its
    term of influence.

    The signs in which each series, IMHO, also contributes to the initial
    lows and highs observed over these return values (years). Although
    I have a large catalog of Eclipse charts of the past few centuries,
    I’ve not yet been able to get to those and collate the data, to see
    just how well your graph(s) corroborate to this hypothesis.

    Additionally, the 20 yr Jupiter-Saturn Cycle, along with its longer
    60 degree triple return, can also be considered into this model. I think
    some of the ‘gray areas’ or ‘skewing’ of data per eclipses comes from the
    sign in which each of the eclipses occurs. Additionally, the positions of
    any eclipse, or planets in any respective eclipse chart, in proximity or
    aspect to the Planetary Nodes also bears noting. Along this line, you might
    also take a look at the plots for declinations of the planets (particularly
    the ‘Heavies’), as their position above or below the ecliptic, in tow with
    any parallels, could have some impact on these cycles. To me, the North/South
    placement of planets to the ecliptic could impact in a a more magnetic manner,
    of which much of what we are now witnessing is (at least in part) is the
    result of some changes in the overall magnetic fields within and without
    the Earth(‘s plane).

    Just some food for thought. Keep up the good work!

    Great comment. All avenues of Mundane Astrological research that I am looking at.

    I really liked today’s Global Earthquakes by Year, 1973 to 2011. I was wondering if a graph of the increase in the number of seismographs around the world laid on top of the graph above might show if the increase in seismographs impacts the increase in the number of earthquakes recorded each year.

    It probably would, however, I don’t know where to get the data.
