    Take a look at "Suspiciuos observers " on YouTube, he has some interesting theories on the sun and it's influence on earthquakes etc.

    Thanks for the suggestion, unfortunately data costs me an arm and a leg and I don't "do" streaming video. Can you give me a few highlights?

    The basic premise is that he monitors the sun's activity such as coronal holes etc. And believes they have. Direct bearing on earthquake activity.
    Every so often he puts out a earthquake warning and he is right 7 out of 10 times.

    His work is starting to gain mainstream scientific recognition.

    When I get back home tonight I will look for a few links for you that are not video.

    Interesting! I've become much more interested in seismology and volcanism in recent years ever since the link between climate change, and earthquakes and volcanic activity has shown to be strong. I had my suspicions about it, but the difficulty is in separating more reports of disasters in the mass media from an actual increase in activity. The theory is pretty compelling: as ice caps and glaciers begin to melt, the weight of that ice being removed and redistributed is bound to cause the crust to move. It makes sense.

    If solar activity caused earthquakes then they would exhibit the same eleven-year cycle, but they don't. It is hard to see how solar flares might affect processes in the Earth's interior anyway.

    It is not really a theory, but demonstrable fact. However earthquakes triggered by the lessening of ice due to the current warming trend are going to be indistinguishable from the continued crustal rebound still occurring as a consequence of the ending of the last iceage.

    I meant "theory" in the same way that gravity - also a demonstrable "theory" - is a fact. Or evolution, ditto. In fact there is not much hard evidence to support it at this stage, but the models - which are models, not data - do support the theory. And I think we will see much more of an increase in effects compared to the movements of the crust from ice ages, especially since by the strict scientific definition of an ice age, we are still in one which began 2.5 million years or so ago. Regardless, the retreat of the ice caps happened long enough ago for that to be of little consequence now compared with current changes during the anthropocene era which has just started.

    Ok, home now and here are some of the links.
    Sadly a lot are video's.

    The chaps name is Ben Davidson.
    He has the website "Suspicious Observers" here:https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...ynbIZIYYnN-XdA

    In the tab on the left click on and open the "Free resources" tab and the click on the "Quake watch" tab.
    He has all the technical jargon there that may interest you.

    I have no real feelings or thoughts on this other than I find it interesting and do watch his daily videos that he posts on YT.
    He also has a very handy weather segment, if you watch one of the videos.
