An analysis of earthquake frequency data
MetadataShow full item record
Analyses of the times of occurrence of the major earthquakes recorded in periods of several years duration are presented for two regions along the San Andreas Fault in Central California. Components of tidal force and jerk are computed for each earthquake in the sample. The distributions of these quantities over the sample periods are compared with corresponding distributions obtained under the hypothesis of random occurrence. It is concluded that the evidence provided by this analysis does not support a hypothesis of significant tidal effects upon earthquake occurrences, in the populations considered
