Solar Flares And Earthquakes

In the days leading up to the Japanese earthquake there were two spectacular magnetic eruptions on the surface of the sun. Could these eruptions somehow play a part in the timing of the Japanese disaster?

It’s an intriguing question that few people seem to be asking. Much has been said in the media recently about possible gravitational effect of an unusually close moon on the Earth’s tectonic plates. There have been theories put forward connecting the cycles of Jupiter, Saturn and Venus with seismic activity, but most scientists are reticent to attribute any tectonic influence to electromagnetic emissions from our local star.

Yet the timing of last week’s devastating earthquake )(which occurred on 11 March 2011, was remarkably close to the moment when an unusually rapid Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) collided with the Earth’s Magnetosphere.

Coincidence? Perhaps, but if so then its the 3rd similar coincidence in a row, because both last year’s Chilean earthquake and the Icelandic volcanic eruption also just happened to occur very soon after significant electromagnetic eruptions on the sun. Evidence is starting to mount in favor of a strong cause and effect relationship between major solar magnetic eruptions and powerful tectonic events on Earth.

Let’s wind the clock back to February 18th 2010. Solar physicists and backyard astronomers alike watch in awe as a million kilometer long magnetic filament emerges from the sun’s surface and arcs out into space. It throbs menacingly above the surface of the sun for a whole week as speculation rages as to what will happen next. How long will it remain intact before it snaps? Will it fall back to the surface producing a rare and powerful Hyder Flare? Flares can rival the strongest flares produced by sunspots, and it’s thought that they occur when a reconfiguration of the magnetic field causes filament material to fall back onto the sun’s chromosphere.

Many have wondered whether solar activity can be linked to earthquakes, but a recent study found no direct relationship between the two.

Scientists assembled historical records of the Sun’s interaction with earth,looking at sunspots, solar wind, and magnetic storms. They then compared these with historical records of earthquake occurrence. They found no significant pattern between solar activity and more or larger earthquakes. There is no demonstrated way to use space data to predict future earthquakes.

The study was recently published in the journal of Geophysical Research Letters. The research was conducted by Jeffrey Love with the USGS and Jeremy Thomas from Northwest Research Associates. The earthquake data were from the USGS, the sunspot data were from NASA, and the geomagnetic data were from the British Geophysical Survey and Geoscience Australia.

The Author’s perspective was conducted to advance our understanding of natural science and to test how the Sun affects Earth, ultimately helping protect the safety of our communities, said USGS geophysicist Jeffrey Love. Even though we did not find a significant correlation between space measurements and earthquakes

Abstract: The Sun’s polar magnetic fields modulate many aspects of space weather and the local space environment. The magnetism of the solar polar fields (SPF), as measured by the Wilcox Solar Observatory )WSO), have been studied and compared with the large magnitude earthquake record from the United States Geological Survey. The time period covers the 38 years )+13,600 days) that the WSO has collected the SPF data, up to January 2014. This study reveals a dependence of M8.0+ seismicity on the oscillations of the SPF; the extremes in magnetism of the polar fields, and their polarity reversals, may be modulating the largest earthquakes on the planet.

Keywords: space weather, solar polar magnetic fields, piezoelectricity, global electric circuit, magnetic fields M8+

The question of the Sun’s possible role in triggering large earthquakes is a subject of growing scientific interest. For decades, some have noted apparent correlations between dramatic solar phenomena and seismic activity. Yet definitive scientific proof of a connection has remained elusive. Recently, the founder of Suspicious0bservers, Ben Davidson, and colleagues published a landmark scientific paper revealing compelling statistical evidence of a role of solar activity in triggering large earthquakes. In this Space News, Ben gave us the latest developments in his research as well as a brief preview of his forthcoming talk at EU2016 Conference: Elegant Simplicity, June 17 -19 in Phoenix, Arizona.

For several years, the Thunderbolts Project has been continuously developing new relationships with scientists in varieties of disciplines. Of all these relationships, one stands out as the most significant and the most telling. Significant in terms of the new understanding this person brought to the scientific issues, and telling in terms of the apparent professional impact this relationship may have had on this person’s career. In this podcast, David Talbott begins relating the story of his relationship with a world-renowned plasma scientist. David will tell us what he learned from that relationship that he applied to his own lifelong research. He will also share details of the story that bear directly on questions of academic freedom in institutional science today.

David’s introductory blog (the first in a series) on this topic:

Here we offer David Talbott’s first glimpses of celestial dramas in ancient times. Just a few thousand years ago a gathering of planets hung as towering forms in the ancient sky close to the earth, provoking spectacular electric discharge formations above our forebears and inspiring the vast complex of world myths and symbols..
