The Streak of Consecutive M6+ Earthquakes to Hit Alert Zones. December 1, 2016 Powerpoint Presentation
November 30, 2016 - The Consecutive Hit Streak
The SDO/AIA 211 shows coronal holes (CHs), the primary earthquake factor. We are looking for the dark patches, which indicate that the interplanetary magnetic fields connecting earth to sun may be about to experience significant fluctuations of energy. Learn more about why coronal holes are important earthquake factors here and in Davidson, 2015.

How to Use the App:
During long-term peaks and troughs, and sharp changes in sunspot number, there is much more energetic exchange between the earth, geo-space, and the outside. Much of this involves solar flares and space weather, but also includes galactic cosmic rays during periods of low solar activity.
Outgoing Longwave Radiation (OLR): the thermal (infrared) energy released from the planet up into the upper atmosphere and outer space. The + ions that send animals fleeing before a quake, and which can create ‘earthquake lights’, can also change cloud cover, which is primary in OLR Readings. Many OLR anomalies present before large earthquakes cannot be tied to clouds, precipitation, volcanic eruptions, or other usual meteorology. Strong ground-atmosphere energy exchanges can occur at strong anomalies and anomaly gradients.
