Astronomical alignments as the cause of ~M6+ seismicity
(Submitted on 11 Apr 2011 (v1), last revised 24 Aug 2011 (this version, v4))
I here demonstrate empirically my georesonator concept in which tidally induced magnification of Earth masses’ resonance causes seismicity. To that end, I show that all strong (~M6+) earthquakes of 2010 occurred during the Earth’s long (t > 3 day) astronomical alignments within our solar system. I then show that the same holds true for all very strong (~M8+) earthquakes of the decade of 2000’s. Finally, the strongest (M8.6+) earthquakes of the past century are shown to have occurred during the Earth’s multiple long alignments, whereas half of the high-strongest (M9+) ones occurred during Full Moon. I used the comet C/2010 X1 (Elenin), as it has been adding to robustness in terms of very strong seismicity since 2007 (in terms of strongest seismicity: since 1965). The Elenin will continue intensifying the Earth’s very strong seismicity until August-October, 2011. Approximate forecast of earthquakes based on my discoveries is feasible. This demonstration proves my hyperresonator concept, arrived at earlier as a mathematical-physical solution to the most general extension of the georesonator concept possible.
Comments: A section included, containing conclusive proof of physical relationship of M6+ earthquakes and long alignments, from 4-months of tracking in near real-time. Minor clarifications added. Results unchanged. Continuation of arXiv:physics/0612177v4, and arXiv:0801.0876v2
