Hi, I have read over the years that the full moons have a great deal of coincidence with earthquakes…I would guess that empirically scientists cannot correlate one with the other, but does it not seem reasonable that an increase in magnetic pull from the moon could trigger seismic activity?  There was no full moon for the recent Japan quake, but perhaps the upcoming lunar perigee played a part.
