The solar polar fields, solar wind speed, and coronal hole IMF appear relevant for triggering the largest earthquakes. The foundational models using SPF and SWS prove valuable in 2014 and 2015, and the events during that time encourage the further investigation of the earth-sun connection, and it was vital that our previous observations and statistical models be verified into the future – two years later the model accuracy remains robust.

      Wow! A fantastic look at solar flare and radio flux-driven events! Thank you for posting this, Ross!

    I know of an animal that can detect major quakes 3-4 weeks in advance, maybe even up to 8 weeks in advance. I have always suspected that this animal was detecting precursors from the focal point itself, not from outer space. But now I see that this animal might indeed detect geomagnetic signals from the sun and use them as a signal to move far away from a dangerous location. Do you see any odd patterns in solar signals that might occur ~30 days prior to a major quake?

    Thank you for your great information. I appreciate it very much.

    right now a coronal hole is in the northern solar hemisphere. its fast solar wind stream is expected to reach the earth on 19-20 Dec 2016. there is thus a great probabilty tht a large eartquake will strike somewhere in the northern hemisphere on 20 0r 21Dec. an God knows best.

    You guys need to get my book ADVOCATE OF DESTINY, VOL. 1, (2003) which helps explain the electromagnetic link between gravity fields, the sun and planet link to great quakes.
