86 Solar Eclipses and Global Earthquake Quantity and Power, 15 days Before and After the Event.

December 22, 2013 Global Earthquake Quantity, Power and Solar Eclipses: I created an Excel spread sheet file, over 15,000 lines long, with every earthquake greater than or equal to 6.0 magnitude. For each day from January 1, 1973 to December 31, 2012; each row has the quantity, magnitude, Power 10X and Strength 32X ratings of the earthquakes occurring that day. Many days the record has all zero’s because no global earthquakes greater than or equal to 6.0 magnitude occurred on that day. The USGS explains the difference between the 10X and 32X quake scale. The bottom line is that the 10X scale is exponential, in terms of a one increment move on the scale represents 10 times the power. The 32X strength rating reflects a 32 times increase for one increment. In other words, a 7.0 magnitude quake is 10 times more powerful than a 6.0 quake but has 32 times the strength. See the USGS website for a complete explanation. Their are 978 earthquakes shown on the quantity graph, with a total 10X power of 5,859.
To follow-up on the premise that earthquakes follow eclipses, I graphed the quantity and Power 10X rating; 15 days before and after the eclipse event. To test this hypothesis, I measured the quantity and Power 10X rating, 15 days before (-) and after (+) the eclipse event. The results of this experiment are shown in the graphs above.
For example, 15 days before the eclipse (-15) their were 24 earthquakes with a Power 10X rating of 198 (see graphs above). On the exact day of the Solar Eclipse (‘0) their where 24 quakes with a Power 10X rating of 56. Lastly, 14 days after the Solar Eclipse (+15) their were 34 earthquakes with a 10X rating of 228. As you can clearly see, from the graphs above, the quantity and 10X rating are some what variable from day to day. The white horizontal line is an exponential best fit line. Note that the quantity best fit line is almost horizontal, while the 10X best fit line slants down from left to right. This means that the earthquakes that occur before the Solar Eclipses tend to be more powerful than those that follow. I would have expected the exact opposite.
Looking at the quantity graph, one can see that the day before (-1), eclipse day (‘0) and the day after (+1) show a low on the graph. I expected to see a peak there, not a low. However, the picture for those three days is very different on the 10X graph; in that the two days following an eclipse tend to see very powerful earthquakes.
Using this graph, along with the Lunar Eclipse graph I published several weeks ago; forecasting earthquakes just got easier.
