Although official scientific community says that earthquakes can't be predicted by the Sun - Earth relationship we have all seen by now that connections can be made. So, without further delay here's an interview with The Barcaroller, independent researcher of earthquake phenomena and man behind videos that are becoming more and more popular, explaining how exactly the Sun and planets in our Solar system affect Earth's seismic disturbances. The main aim of his research is to get this into a model where in the near future it will allow everyone to have an Earthquake Warning System in place where people can get this news like a weather report which will warn about an Earthquake Risk at a specific place, specific day and specific location so people can be better prepared and ready - which will consequently save many lives.
Tell us something about yourself and let's get on to questions and answers...
I have always had a fascination of the earthquake phenomena for as long as I can remember. I began my research in 1999, working as an independent researcher. I began looking specifically at the cycles of the Moon. This was my Lunar modulation introduction and the effects of Moon/Earth relationship with regards to seismic activity. After three years I expanded my research into eclipse cycles of Sun and the Moon and then the research took me into planetary alignments a few years later. Then in 2007 moving into solar analysis combining all aspects (Lunar, celestial influences and the Sun) into a functional forecasting system that's in operation today.
This line of research exposes one to a greater understanding of the universe and the amazing cycles with-in cycles that create the fabric of this reality we reside in.
Given the Sun's observing data from SOHO, STEREO, SDO and PROBA we can forecast impact of CME on our magnetosphere, calculate the speed of solar wind, ionosphere disturbances and pressure on our magnetic shield - how can we use these parameters to estimate the time and place of seismic events?
Coronal mass ejection's relate to fueling an earthquake cycle but not the cause of earthquakes per say, The strong coronal mass ejection (CME) or Halo CME are usually associated with severe weather related phenomena here on earth (tropical cyclones, tornadoes, sub-tropical storms, extreme weather and a relationship with volcanic eruptions/ increase in magma movements here on Earth). Therefore the magma "push" from the deep earthquake fuels the earthquake cycle which then spreads across the globe. (Conceptually we can visualize that volcanoes are the arteries and magma is the blood of the Earth).
We usually have a window of 3-4 days where solar activities affect the Earth, high solar winds are incoming information's or energy's, once solar winds drop to levels before the increase then we know the full information/energy's have been received by the Earth and we are close to an earthquake related event providing the rise in solar winds were caused by a coronal hole.
Knowing that it usually takes several days for Sun's material to arrive on Earth, can we say that earthquakes can be predicted?
Earthquakes can be predicted by researching the Sun and related solar output, we know CME's usually take 2-3 days to arrive on average if they are Earth directed, the speed will be determined by the strength of the related solar disturbance. It's obvious from my research that everything the Sun does affects us here on the Earth in some way, even if the solar activity is not Earth directed. The Earth-Sun relationship is the entire area of space between Earth's orbit to the Sun. Therefore sundiving/grazing comets, asteroids, the orbits of Venus and Mercury which move in between the Sun and Earth will all have a strong influence on the Sun which then directly affects the Earth. The Sun is the axis of time, so everything must involve the Sun's harmonic in order for it to be manifested here in our 3D reality.
Magnetic field lines of the Sun are important also as they may influence the angle of the solar wind flow exiting the Coronal Hole. By looking at specific solar data, we can pick up on concentrations or blockages of incoming solar radiation/plasma interacting with our ionosphere/atmosphere. These are our best guide in observing associated phenomena linked to pre-earthquake signals or seismic precursor. In my models and research earthquakes directly relate to coronal holes on the solar corona, coronal holes send out high speed solar winds which seems to directly correlate to the Sun sending earthquake information to the earth.
What indicators do you use to find locations of tectonic plate disturbances and by what parameters do you find the locations? How do you predict the magnitude of an earthquake?
Using a mapping system from the Sun-Earth is important, often mapping the shape of the coronal hole can also be used to determine location or the possible earthquake or volcanic eruption. By monitoring the rate of change and movement of the coronal hole gives a latitude to work with. The deepness of the coronal hole and related observations will dictate the possible magnitude. Searching for locations is going through seismic data looking closely at the previous days looking for possible fore-shock signatures and cross checking active fault lines with related solar data and specific anomalies.
Do planetary alignments have a role in that? How do planets in our Solar system affect tectonic disturbances?
Planets affect the Sun, planetary alignments are an energy transfer between celestial body's, it's understood that all planets resonate a frequency and this celestial symphony gets disturbed in a way during planetary alignments which create a distortion in time-space where an energy transfer takes place. Scientifically this is understood as the Flux Transfer Event or Magnetic portal phenomena. So the cyclical nature of the planets are an important ingredient in what happens to the Sun and ultimately here on the Earth.
Could we say that some other galactic forces also affect Earth's core and crust?
It's important that when thinking of Galactic forces that we understand the effects are energetic in nature and higher dimensional, not measurable by gravity. Many sometimes use the moons gravitational influence on the Earth and then expect other celestial body's to have that same effect, unfortunately it does not.
Now thinking outside the box, the earthquake has already happened here on Earth energetically but not physically, the Sun acts like a mirror and shows us slightly ahead in time what's about to happen with the emergence of sunspots, coronal holes and coronal mass ejection's ect .... So in simple terms the Earth makes an "order", the Sun takes the "order" and transmutes it, and then sends the translated energy's back to be manifested here on Earth. We use solar data to catch a glimpse of these higher dimensional energy transfer/exchange that are in progress and sometimes it may be perceived that we tap into the future by doing this.
We know that volcanoes are mostly located on tectonic plate borders and that we are in geologically active period.. given the fact the we are entering solar maximum, could we say that mega-earthquakes and mega-volcanoes are connected to increased solar activity?
Solar Maximum is a period of strong solar activity measured only in sunspot count, more Sun spots the greater potential of large flares and solar related disturbances. however the large earthquakes do not correlate with solar maximum periods so this mega-quake theory at solar max holds no water. Solar activity is the main driver of seismic activity here on Earth, the Sun can become active at any point in its cycle. this is why looking at planetary alignments are a good indicator of potential future solar activity and not just a theoretical influence as the sunspot number count is, which cannot guarantee anything but a nice curve on a chart.
What are the most sensitive locations on Earth that are directed to Sun's influence?
Obviously "The Ring Of Fire" would be the most "sensitive" location as it's the zone where the Earth receives solar information and energy's, this area is also the Earth's magnetic portal. We also have the South Atlantic Anomaly which is an area on the Earth where we have an increased flux of energetic particles, so this area has a high radiation component and where the Earth's magnetic field is at its weakest.
How precise are the precursors?
We have various forms of data we can use as precursors, my research and results show how important these precursors are, in my opinion they are very precise in terms of time-lines and quite good in terms of locations, there is still more to learn but I am very excited where the research has gone so far.
The main aim is to get this into a model where in the near future it will allow everyone to have an Earthquake Warning System in place where people can get this news like a weather report which will warn about an Earthquake Risk at a specific place, specific day and specific location so people can be better prepared and ready which will save many lives.
