Above a graph of all major quakes since 2010 stats from USGS.
- Where have the major quakes gone?
- The year 2017 has had the least recorded major quakes this century so far
- Volcano activity on the other hand has been mightily impressive
This month so far we have had only 4 recorded major earthquakes, if this tally stays like this until the end of the month, it will be the lowest amount of major quakes in one month since Jan, 4: 2015 and Dec, 4: 2013, then you have to go back almost 10 years to 2008 when in Oct, 3: Nov, 1: and Dec, 1: just 4 major quakes where recorded in a 3 month period.
The year 2017 has had the least recorded major quakes this century so far.
So where have they gone?
Of course I have no idea but conditions have been favourable, although sunspot activity on our Sun is at a 7 year low we have had a sequence of massive coronal holes on out Sun which we now know is the main earthquake factor.
A massive potent coronal hole is facing at this moment, Spaceweather reports: A canyon-shaped hole in the sun's atmosphere is facing Earth, and it is spewing a stream of fast-moving solar wind toward our planet. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory photographed the giant fissure on March 25th: See below.
