The intermediate-depth earthquakes (~200 km) in Hindu Kush, Afghanistan were investigated to prove their origin by tides. An untraditional astronomical method has been used to prove how astronomical parameters influence triggering of earthquakes. In contrast to previous issues, where Moon hour angles were used, Moons declinations were used successf...

All important earthquakes have been investigated from 2002 to 2021, their tidal origin proven and prediction stated. Prediction concerned earthquakes in Central Italy for 2016 and earthquake in South-Central Alaska for 2021. Tides move all plates westward probably with whole lithosphere but many plates among them as Pacific, Indo-Australian and Afr...

Considering tidal effect of earthquakes triggering, three parts are investigated: A-Region of Haiti earthquakes 2010 and 2021, B-Region of Puerto Rico earthquake swarms and C-Region of Mid-Atlantic ridge. All three regions are subjected to tidal effect triggering: Haiti 2010 earthquake to north-south tidal torque of local effect on Puerto Rico swar...

Using confirmed long term tidal periodicities, it has been predicted that the next strong earthquake in South-Central Alaska, situated in narrow belt 149º-146ºW and 60º-65ºN will be in 2021, what has been fulfilled by earthquake Chickaloon May 31, 2021 M 6.

Unknown reviewer's comments: In this short paper, the author argues that tidal torques acting in the meridional direction (that is, north-south) are responsible for the motion of the crustal fragments that built the Indian subcontinent and led to the collision between India and Asia. The author argues that tidal torques alone can explain the comple...

Reviewer's comments: The problem discussed is interesting and current (see e. g. Zaccagnino et al., 2020). Unfortunately, the author's reasoning is quite difficult to follow. Too many issues are discussed in one study. It is unfortunate to link the issue of plate motion to unfounded earthquake predictions. In my view, it is incorrect to claim that...

Mantle convection in Earth interior contradicts to any geological observations. Mantle convection and seemingly chaotic plate movements disqualified any possibilities of earthquake predictions. Earthquakes are triggered during Full or New Moon owing to summarizing action of Moon and Sun torques but relatively scarcely. Mostly, Moon and Sun’s torque...

Paper presents reasons why sometimes Full or New Moons correlate with earthquakes and sometimes not. Solution follows from calculations of tidal torques, dependent on Moon and Sun declinations, and their subtraction or addition gives resultant torques, able or unable to trigger earthquakes. To avoid usual objection, that if tidal torque act on the...

Among the most evident tidal actions on solid earth belong: calculations of tidal torques proportional to Moon and Sun declinations, which are able to move plates and trigger earthquakes.

It has been proven in author's studies that the westward and northward collision events are statistically significant and it also supports an idea that the driving mechanism of the Philippine Sea plate as a buffer plate is controlled by forces following from the Earth's rotation as the westward tidal drag and the north-south equator-fleeing force....

Two steps were performed: (1) seeking correlation of earthquakes with Earth's rotation variation extremes and (2) statistical evaluation of histograms constructed from distribution of Moon's hour angles with earthquakes. Examined earthquakes were: Norcia 1979 (M = 5.9), Calfiorito 1997 (M max = 5.9), L'Aquila 2009 (M = 6.3) and Rieti 2016 (M = 6.2)...

Periodicities of occurring earthquakes give in some cases relatively precise prediction in the long time scale. The author performed in 2010 the detailed investigation of earthquakes in Norcia-Marche-Abruzzi region in Central Italy from 1974 to the earthquake of L’Aquila M 6.3, 6th. April 2009. Investigations had been extended to the earthquakes of...

We analysed the anomalously excited microseisms at the OKC seismic station (Czech Republic) during the period between 2007 – 2011. We showed that the time distribution of the anomalous microsesims is similar to the LOD (Length Of the Day) variations. The biggest number of anomalous microsesisms was excited in the period when LOD (differential) was...

Forces moving plates are of two kinds: Force moving plates to the north and force moving plates to the west. They are both, by their origin, related to tidal forces but they act in quite different way. The northward force acts by its center in meridian, the westward force acts in direction of geographic parallels. Tidal forces of semidiurnal and di...

Myths are the result of man's attempts to explain noteworthy features of his environment stemming from unfounded imagination.

The goal of the paper was to verify triggering of earthquakes by the length of day variations, i.e. the sidereal 13.66 days Earth's rotation variations, in contrast with tidal biweekly 14.76 days variations (full and new Moon), which for hundred years of investigation give negative results. Earthquake triggering governed by sidereal variations caus...

In contrast to unsuccessful searching (lasting over 150 years) for correlation of earthquakes with biweekly tides, the author found correlation of earthquakes with sidereal 13.66 days Earth's rotation variations expressed as length of a day (LOD) measured daily by International Earth's Rotation Service. After short mention about earthquakes M 8.8 D...

Coincidence of earthquakes with maximum amplitudes of the length of a day record since beginning of the year 2006 during the extreme Earth's rotation deceleration has proved that variations of the Earth's rotation triggered earthquakes in Taiwan-Luzon collision area of Eurasian and Philippine Sea plates.

According to Wegener's theory the continents are driven by the Eötvös force to the equator and by the force of tidal friction to the west. This old theory is fully applicable for the movement of lithospheric plates in today's plate tectonics concept. The difference is that instead of continents the whole lithospheric plates move without regard they...

In the first part of the paper is explained that the westward drift of plates is caused by periodic tidal variations, which facilitate the movement of plates drive by slab-pull and ridge-push forces.

Question
· In August 2021 I submitted to Researchgate paper titled: „Earthquake prediction for South-Central Alaska has been fulfilled“ At present time this paper has disappeared from internet and even DOI: 10.13140/RG.2.2.22659.43041 does not give any response. Please, insert my paper again to appear on Internet. What is your opinion who could wipe off my paper?.
