Description

The sun “talks” to the Earth.  One channel, still poorly understood, involves the ionosphere. The ionosphere interacts magnetically with the solid Earth, reaching deep into the crust, generating forces that can trigger earthquakes. Before major earthquakes, the crust “talks” back to the ionosphere, causing perturbations.
