: The search for correlations between secondary cosmic ray detection rates and seismic effects has long been a subject of investigation motivated by the hope of identifying a new precursor type that could feed a global early warning system against earthquakes. Here we show for the first time that the average variation of the cosmic ray detection rates correlates with the global seismic activity to be observed with a time lag of approximately two weeks, and that the significance of the effect…

Solar activity and Earth seismicity

Using the results of continuous long-term observations over 50 years (including solar cycles 20–24), we study the relationship between Earth’s seismicity and solar activity. An increase in the number

On the correlation between solar activity and large earthquakes worldwide

Clear correlation between proton density and the occurrence of large earthquakes is found, with a time shift of one day, and the significance of such correlation is very high, with probability to be wrong lower than 10 –5 .

The generation of large earthquakes

Despite decades of observational, laboratory and theoretical studies, the processes leading to large earthquake generation remain enigmatic. However, recent observations provide new promising

The Pierre Auger Observatory scaler mode for the study of solar activity modulation of galactic cosmic rays

Since data-taking began in January 2004, the Pierre Auger Observatory has been recording the count rates of low energy secondary cosmic ray particles for the self-calibration of the ground detectors

Ionospheric evidence of the May 1960 earthquake over Concepción

For many years relations between seismic activity and associated ionospheric changes have been studied. Particularly, the possibility to identify ionospheric precursors of large earthquakes has been

On the magnetic precursor of the Chilean earthquake of February 27, 2010

Some recent publications reported on an anomalous geomagnetic disturbance that was observed three days before the strongest Chilean earthquake on February 27, 2010. The present paper analyzes in

The TEC Enhancement Before Seismic Events Is an Artifact

Since 2011 there has been an ongoing debate about the possibility of short‐term earthquake prediction using total electron content (TEC) ionospheric monitoring by the Global Navigation Satellite

Three‐Dimensional Tomography of Ionospheric Anomalies Immediately Before the 2015 Illapel Earthquake, Central Chile

Using ionospheric total electron contents residual data from 146 Global Navigation Satellite System stations in South America, we conducted three‐dimensional tomography of ionospheric electron

Latitudinal variation rate of geomagnetic cutoff rigidity in the active Chilean convergent margin

Abstract. We present a different view of secular variation of the Earth's magnetic field, through the variations in the threshold rigidity known as the variation rate of geomagnetic cutoff rigidity
