Two scientists have predicted that the world could see an increase in the number of strong earthquakes in the coming year and coming years. Sources in Washington DC say that they can be true. According to a report, theRoger Bilham University of Colorado and the Rebecca Bendick University of Montana have made presentations of their research work at the annual conference of the Geological Society of America. They have recently argued that there is a clear association between the speed of the earth’s rotation and global earthquake activity.

Both the research work, focuses at least on five occasions in the past century, a 25 to 30% increase in annual numbers of earthquakes measuring 7 and more on Richter scale has corresponded with the slowing in the mean rotation velocity of the earth, with a consistent decrease at times when the length of the day is short.

The year 2017 marks 6 years following a slowing down an episode that started in the year 2011. This is indicating that the world has now entered a phase or period of heightened global seismic productivity with duration of at least five years.
