The objective of this paper is to analyze the temporal clustering of large global earthquakes with respect to natural time, or interevent count, as opposed to regular clock time. To do this, we use two techniques: (1) nowcasting, a new method of statistically classifying seismicity and seismic risk, and (2) time series analysis of interevent counts. We chose the sequences of $$M_{\lambda } \ge 7.0$$Mλ≥7.0 and $$M_{\lambda } \ge 8.0$$Mλ≥8.0 earthquakes from the global centroid moment tensor (CMT… Expand
