David Nabhan was earthquake co-ordinator for the Los Angeles Independent School District for 15 years, and he says that we're missing the boat on earthquake prediction. Here he outlines his ideas about how we can go about identifying higher probability times and dates when earthquakes are more likely. He is not able to identify definite dates, but his research does suggest that it's possible to say that there is a higher probability of quakes on certain days when there are near-sygyzy and near-perigee events. (He explains on the show what these are.) The statistics show that the effect is stronger on the US west coast, possibly because of the structure of its fault lines, and people in this area should be especially aware of these events, the next one of which is coming up on October 26. UPDATE: David Nabhan will be on Sonoma County KSRO News at 7:15 AM Friday, October 28, 2011 to discuss the earthquake swarm that took place on October 26. To listen, click here
We are not interested in making claims that the sky is falling on Dreamland, but David Nabham is a rational man who has studied earthquakes seriously, and has intelligent, useful information to offer.
