Stothers, R.B., 1990: A search for long-term periodicities in large earthquakes of southern and coastal central California. Geophys. Res. Lett., 17, 1981-1984, doi:10.1029/GL017i011p01981.

It has been occasionally suggested that large earthquakes may follow the 8.85-year and 18.6-year lunar-solar tidal cycles and possibly the ∼ 11-year solar activity cycle. From a new study of earthquakes with magnitudes ≥ 5.5 in southern and coastal central California during the years 1855-1983, it is concluded that, at least in this selected area of the world, no statistically significant long-term periodicities in earthquake frequency occur. The sample size used is about twice that used in comparable earlier studies of this region, which concentrated on large earthquakes.
