Ricardo Hernandez asked:
Could potentiallysome of earthquakes on earth be produced by gravitational waves?
Transcript to follow.
I don't know, but I would think it very unlikely. I suspect that if gravity waves were able to cause earthquakes they would have been detected by now. There are sensitive instruments out there looking for them. We can detect even small Earth movements, so it seems to make sense that if the causes were external, we should be able to detect them as well. Bill S, Sat, 4th May 2013
Every day the Earth is stretched and squeezed as the Sun and Moon pass overhead.
The Institute for Geophysics at The University of Texas, Austin "THE" University of Texas Original, listens at locations all over the world for ever bit of noise made by the earth and puts each in their place scientifically. No earthquakes have ever been attributable to gravitation waves. JimBob, Fri, 10th May 2013
