Abstract

East of the eastern American continental divide and south of lat. 42.5??N, moderate to large historic earthquakes correlate strongly with times of high and low solid-earth tides. This effect is most pronounced when solar declination lies between 17??N and 17??S. Significant correlation also exist between major earthquakes, time of day, lunar declinations, and lunar phase. -Authors
