Main Article Content
The full range of 72h-forced, 72 superharmonic resonance periods, is detected in time-series of all 866 earthquakes of (robust averages of) Mw5.6+ from USGS, EMSC, and GFZ, 2015-2019 catalogs. The resonance is in the 55’–15 days long-periodic band (0.303 mHz–0.771605 μHz) at 99–67% confidence. Moreover, omitting of the 21 overrepresenting events has improved the result. The signal is clear, strong, and stable – demonstrating beyond doubt that Mw6.2+ seismicity arises due to long-periodic resonance. Remarkably, the natural mode’s cluster was detected too; it averaged 60.1’, while the overall strongest resonance period was also 59.9’, at 2.3 var%, or to within the 1Hz sampling rate – revealing that the 72 h forcer is the modulator of the Earth’s natural period via synchronization. The dominance property of the forcer also follows from detection of its many other fractional multiples: 14/5, 3/2, 5/12, 5/36, etc. After Schumann resonance discovery in the short band (extremely long band of the EM Spectrum), this is the second report ever of a full resonance bundle in any global data, and the first ever in tectonic earthquakes occurrences. The Mw6.2+ seismotectonics arises via resonance-rupture response of tectonic plates and regions to the resonant phase or its fractional multiples. Fundamental questions of geophysics including earthquake prediction can be solved if the Earth is taken to be a multi-oscillator nonlinear system. As an immediate benefit, the find enables a reliable partial seismic anti-forecasting (prediction of seismic quiescence), months ahead globally. This discovery of mechanically induced extreme-band energy on Earth invalidates the main (heat-transfer) geophysical hypothesis and thus should drastically diminish the role of chemistry in geosciences, specifically of geochemistry.

Authors who publish with this journal as of Vol. 63 agree to the following terms:
a. Authors share the copyright with this journal in equal parts (50% to the journal, 50% to the lead author), and grant the journal right of first publication, with the work after publication simultaneously licensed under Creative Commons Attribution License CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 that allows others to share the work with an acknowledgment of the work's authorship and initial publication in this journal.
b. Authors may enter into separate, additional contractual arrangements for the non-exclusive distribution of the journal's published version of the work (e.g., post it to an institutional repository or publish it in a book), with an acknowledgment of its initial publication in this journal, and a reference to this copyright notice.
c. Authors are permitted and encouraged to post their work online (e.g., in institutional repositories or on their website) during the submission process, as this can lead to productive exchanges as well as earlier and greater citation of published work and better sales of the copyright.
This journal is one of a handful of scholarly journals that publish original scientific works under CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 - the only Creative Commons license affording absolute worldwide protection of authors' intellectual property.
Journal of Geophysics is published under the scholar-publishers model, meaning authors do not surrender their copyright to us. Instead, and unlike corporate publishers like Elsevier or Springer Nature which resell the copyright to third-parties for up to $80,000 (per paper, per transaction!), the Journal of Geophysics authors share the copyright equally with this journal.
Therefore all the proceeds from reselling the copyright to third parties are shared to equal parts as well (50% to the journal, 50% to the lead author). Under the Berne Convention, this protection is an inheritable right which lasts for as long as the rightsholder lives + 50 years.
By submitting to this journal, the lead author on behalf of all co-authors grants permission to this journal to represent all co-authors in negotiating copyright sales and collecting of proceeds. The lead author should negotiate with his/her co-authors the modalities of distributing the lead author's portion of the proceeds. Usually, this is per pre-agreed percentage of each co-author's contribution to creating the copyrighted work. (more...)
