earthquake prediction dates (7+) for the year 2011

hi
As stated earlier,please note the dates for probable major earthquakes (7+). The window period will be + or - one day (UTC). Figures in brackets shows 7.5+ quake on that date only.
1) January 2011------19,25
2)February-----------19,21
3)March-------------- 20(7.5+)
4)April----------------3,17(7.5+)
5) May---------------16,29
6)June---------------9.12,15
7)July----------------1,9,31
8)August------------6(7.5+),13,30(7.5+)
9)September---------3(7.5+),12,16,28
10)October----------27(7.5+)
11) November-------24
12)December--------7,10,19,25(7.5+)

Total 28 dates hence 84 window dates ie 23.3 % of the year
There is one chance of 7+ on 4th January 2011.However as we are very close to window openiing that was not posted
Depending on cycle quakes ,occurring 7 days in advance, few dates may be modified (well in advance of window opening)
Please watch dates

hi
For those who wish to know 6+ quake dates also,please find cycle quake dates from the above dates.
for 6+ quakes probable dates add and deduct 7/8 days from the above dates.ie 6+ may occur before and after 7th and 8th day.

Here is one more proof of 7+ hit,chile(7.1),on 3rd December 2011, you may not consider ,if ,you wish. Nevertheless ,fact remains.
This is no hand waving technique please

Hi Amit,
could you justify, i.e. write down the reason for picking those dates please? So as we all understand the thinking?
Thank you very much.

Amit;

For the 2011 predictions, when you say 7+ do you mean 7.0 to 9.9 or do you mean 6.7 to 9.9?

I refer to the +-0.3 rule

Roger

AMIT said...

Roger
When I say
7+ it is ----6.7 to 7.5

7.5+ -------anything above 7.2 ( say 9.9)

Hi Amit,
Oh I actually asked for which date refers to what effect.
For example 4th Jan (random) is due to solar eclipse etc etc

AMIT said...

hi
For each date,some detailed expiation can be given,but it will take some time.
This is my part time hobby/ work,and now a days I have some overload at my office also

Hi Amit,
Here are my prediction dates for 2011.
Jan 12, 16, 26
Feb 20
Mar 20, 26
Apr 3, 18
May 2, 19
Jun 2, 12
Jul 1, 9, 31
Aug 6, 30
Sep 4, 28
Oct 26
Nov 15, 25
Dec 10, 25

These are my 7+ Predictions +-0.5 ish.

For those predictions, here are back of the envelope calculations for randomness. As before assuming binomial distribution (debatable but hey this is the last of our problems) I give you the numbers for successes based on those distributions and for 26 trials I gave you. Assuming p=15/122 (For 7+ quakes from the average)
P( zero hits)= 3.3%
P( 1 hit)= 12.03%
P( 2 hits) = 21%
P(3 hits) = 23.6%
P(4 hits) = 19%
P(5 hits) = 11.7%
P(6 hits) = 5.7%
P(7 hits) = 2.3%
P(8 hits) = .77%
P(9 hits) = 0.1%
etc
(I will be happy to get 1 hit right ;-) ....)
Assuming in the above that we get 15 7+ quakes in the year. We will see about that, but if I get 5 hits from 15, that is 20%, which is more than the 11.7% the binomial gives as random, so there would be 'SKILL' in my predictions. Thats my thinking for now. If you agree let me know If not let us know again.....
Kind Regards,
Remi

hi
As we have a major quake (7+ ) on 3rd January 2011 and also as we have redictd one major on 18/19/20 th January 2011,there is a chance of quake ,6+, on 11th January 2011 (+ or - 1 day )
This is also as per quake cycle theory,( prone dates gives quakes on 7/8th before and after.
Amit

AMIT said...

hi
Though 10/11 January 2011 are potent dates for 6+, as the Moon is at apogee on 10th , quakes may be less potent ie 5.8 to 6.1
Amit

AMIT said...

hi
please note Vanuatu quake of 6.7 today ie 9th January 2011.
Yet another 6+ is expected on 10/11th December 2011
Amit

AMIT said...

hi
please note my comment of cycle quakes for 6+ quakes.First comment below this blog.
I have predicted a major quake on 19th January 2011 (+ r - one day) Now we have a cycle quake of 6.5 at Bonn Island on 12/13th Night 2011.
This shows that ,rather this is a confirmation that a major quake is imminant on 19th January 2011
watch out

Hi Amit,

At 2 a.m., I have experienced an Earthquake in Noida, which seems to have an epicenter somewhere else. I don't know if it's a 7+ but things were certainly shaking quite a bit at our 2nd floor flat for around 10 seconds after which it died down.

Will check the news in the morning for an update on this.

Binu said...

This just in.
The epicenter of a 7.4 earthquake was in Pakistan

hi
Thanks everybody.
All I want is people to believe ,that major earthquakes can be predicted to the date accuracy. Also that,there are reasons for major quake to occur ,other than plate tectonics
watch next dates 25/26th January 2011

Hi
As per cycle quake theory, saturn picking up accelartion, full Moon on 15th , and Jupiter squaring the Moon on 16th,there are fair chances of 6.5 quake on 15th July 2011(+ or - one ady and + or - 0.3 Magnitude)

AMIT said...

hi
quakes of 6.0 ,off coast of Chile and 6.1 at Alaska are observed during 15/16th July 2011
The earthquakes and Volcanic eruption occurs ,due to the same reason. If the tidal pressure is more and if it finds the vent out( ie volcano mouth) it erupts.Thus ,it releases the built up pressure in side.Thus ,if on given date if volcano erupt ,the quakes will be of lesser magnitude than expected

Hi

please see my blog.The date predicted for 65.+ quake was 30th /31st July 2011.with + or - one day window period

please note several 6.5+ quakes during these period

6.7 Fiji

6.4 Japan

6.8 New Guinea

6.1 Vanuattu

What are the odds of getting 6.5+ dtae hit?

Amit

AMIT said...

Hi
please note Mt Etna erupted on 30th July 2011.The theory of Tidal pull and Momentum change states that
When the inside preessure (tidal pull ) increases and excede the limit,either it breaks the crust partially( hence earthquake occurs) or Can rupture the mouth of volcano completely and gives out eruption
So the dates predicted are prone to quakes as well as eruption.
In fact ,it can also induce cyclones,which is already discussed elsewhere in this blog as well as on web page

hi

please see my monthly prediction for August 2011
Here are two major quakes
7.1 at Vanuatu on 20th August 1655
7.0 at Vanuatu on 20th August 1819

What do you think ,it is hit (7+) date or miss?The predicted date time and magnitude are as follows

22nd August at 0130 UTC and 7.0 magnitude

Your opinions are requested
While writing this ,I am aware that my predictions are for + or - one day window period( which are very stringent for 7.0 quake prediction and also that these quakes are just outside (6Hrs) window period

hi
The time frame for quakes are
1) 27th August 2011-----1130 UTC
2) 29th August 2011-----0430 UTc
3) 30th August 2011-----1430 UTC
The quake/s would be 7.0
Please oe during these days we may notice ,cyclones or/volcanic eruptions

Amit

AMIT said...

hi
20th September 2011 is under observation for 6.3 to 6.6 quake
As Jupiter has changed the direction on 30th August 2011 and it is approching closer to Earth,(4AU units) each transit movememt(0,90 and 180 degrees) of Moon with Sun and Jupiter may cause quakes of 6+
If the Moon is closer on that date and /or it is at extreme declination the magnitude of quake will be consigerable
Amit

AMIT said...

hi
One ore at Vanuattu,7.0 at midnight between 3rd and 4th September 2011.
Have anybody thought ,why there are so many 6.5+ quakes in last 3 days? OR It is by chance?
It was earlier pointed out that ,whenever bigger planets changes tha direction from direct to retro gate or vice a versa ,the chances og bigger quakes increases
Watch till September 2011 end,as Jupiter has changed the direction in first week if September

hi
Now when we have 6.4 quake at Vancouver on 9th September 2011, the quake on 16th is almost certain (6.5-place not known )
This is termed by me as cycle quake theory.
On prone months major quakes occurs after every 7 to 7 and half days.
This is because Moon( the main trigger) acquires another potent position (90 degrees apart ) after every 7-7.5 days
Amit

AMIT said...

Yes.2nd September 2011 was predicted
please see

http://earthquake-prediction.blogspot.com/2011/08/earthquake-predicion-for-september-2011.html
or look at the right side of this blog and go for September 2011 prediction

Yes. You are right . I am convinced that most of the major quakes (6.5+) can be predicted with considerable accuracy.
Also I am convinced that , if some 30 to 35 odd dates per year are selected ( which are most prone to quakes),almost 90% of damaging quakes can be predicted
The only problem is pin pointing locations. If time accuracy is with in half an Hour , may be location ,as per resultant pull can be fixed
I am working on , as to whether we can locate a band of longitude or latitude,for the day and + or - 4 t 6 Hrs
I believe ,it is possible ,in principle. The point is we have to put in enough resources both in terms of time and money.
May be some day Government, seismology departments and NGO
realize this

hi
I shall give reasons for possible quakes till September end 2011.
Let us observe which criteria is more potent
We have pre requisites of major planet (jupiter) changing the direction is full filled ,till September end
Now
1)16th September
at 1400 UTC Jupiter and Moon Coisides.
2)20th September- Moon at Maximum
declination and Moon at 90 degrees to Sun
3)27th September-
New Moon,Moon at Perigee(closest-57.1ER-Earth Radious), Moon Venus Conjuction, Moon at Equater on 26th
Hence, looking at the strenght, 27th September 2011 will give major quake

hi

I believe there is a strong link between major earthquakes and Volcano eruptions (any where in the world)

The explation is like this

On the prone date for major quake, the tidal pull is more.When the pull exceeds a limit ,it breaks the crust (the semi solid magma under pull-high tide like one in oceans) and the quakes occurs

On the same day ,as the Earth moves in Orbit and along axis, the pull may come under mouth of volcano, and may break open the mouth on the same day

This is why we notice some of the volcano erupting along with major quakes some where else

hi
For November 2011 prediction ,pl see my November 2011 predictions on this blog as well as on my web page

http://earthquakeprediction.webs.com/ and go to calender

Though it is not possible to pin point places of quakes as of now, the date and approximate magnitude can be predicted
Unfortunately ,seismologist in general and USGS in particular believes that quake can not be predicted and there is only one theory that can explain quakes is plate tectonics-
Those who speaks against the proclaimed theory are either ridiculed or ignored ,forget giving any help or aid for that

Next date (probable) for quakes of 6+ are
10th ,13th and 25/26th November 2011

AMIT said...

hi
Here are the actaul quakes (7+) as against predicted dates for the year 2011 ,till October 2011
1) January
Prediction date -------------actual dates and quake
4th------------------2nd at 2020Hrs UTC----7.2
2)April
8th-----------------7th at 1432 Hrs--7.1
3)July
9th------------------6th at 1903 Hrs---7.6
10th---------------7.0
4)August
22nd----------------20th at 1819 Hrs-----7.1

5)September
5th-------------------3rd at 2255 Hrs UTC---7.0
16th-----------------15th -----7.3
6)October
22/23rd-------------21st--------7.4
23rd--------7.2
Thus there are 9 Hits of 7+ quakes
If you do not consider little inaccurcy of 2/3 Hrs ,there are 5 dot hits (+ or - one day window and 7+)


There are 19 quakes of 7+ during January to October 2011(incluning clusters)
The average number of 7+ quakes per year are 15
thus odds are 15/120----120 because ,total days 360/ 3 day window period
ie 1/8 ie one in eight or 0.125
Now 9 hits out of 19 is 9/19 0.473
Even if we consider 5 hit out of 19 it comes to
5/19 ie 0.263
Both way it is above random date selection or average occurances(even after taking in to account cluster of quakes)
