Japan’s most devastating earthquake in the country’s history may have been provoked by the position of the Moon and the processes that are under way on the Sun. The opinion was ventured in an interview with the Voice of Russia by a Russian researcher, Deputy Director of the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Geography Arcady Tishkov.
On March 11th, an 8.9 Magnitude earthquake shook a vast area in the centre and northeast of Japan. The seismic focus was at the depth of 10 kilometres under the Pacific bottom, near the northeastern part of Japan’s main island, Honshu Island. A 10-metre high tidal wave hit the coastline, followed by another shock. Hundreds of people have died, enormous damage has been done to several cities, transport performance and communications have been disrupted. A disaster of such a devastating scale could be provoked by the Moon and the Sun, says Deputy Director of the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Geography Arcady Tishkov, and elaborates.
It is held, Arcady Tishkov says, that the Earth’s seismic activity cycles are directly involved with solar weather. The Sun shoots out streams of protons that affect the Earth’s activity. That’s number one. Number two, the Moon will now be located at the closest distance from the Earth, which, combined with solar influence, may affect the activity of the oceans, namely the high tide - low tide frequency. When the exorbitant mass of the Pacific’s water reserve with its enormous capacitive lag changes the frequency of its high tide – low tide regime, this could certainly affect the local chain of volcanoes, - the so-called Pacific belt of fire.
