KHashmi316 Posted July 7, 2019 Report Share Posted July 7, 2019 For those of you living in EQ zones, you may want to brace up ... Surprised this study (reported in Science, Oct. 2017) didn't get more attention: https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2017/10/sloshing-earth-s-core-may-spike-major-earthquakes Quote One way or another, says James Dolan, a geologist at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, “we’re going to know in 5 years.” That’s because Earth’s rotation began a periodic slow-down 4-plus years ago. Beginning next year, Earth should expect five more major earthquakes a year than average—between 17 to 20 quakes, compared with the anomalously low four so far this year. If the pattern holds, it will put a new spin on earthquake forecasting. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
