Earthquake FAQ - UTIG
Earthquakes can occur any time of day or night. There is no correlation between time of day and earthquake occurance, although small earthquakes may be more noticeable at night when there is less cultural noise from heavy equipment and transportation, and from weather.
Earthquake FAQ - UTIG
Wherever faults exist an earthquake can occur. That includes places that have never experienced an earthquake in recorded history and places listed as devoid of any reasonable risk on seismic hazard maps. However, earthquakes are much more likely to occur in some places than others; they are most likely along the boundaries between tectonic plates and at particular points of weakness within plates.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) Page
Where can I find information on the world's earthquakes? In addition to the international networks which can detect earthquakes of magnitude 5.0 and greater, the majority of the countries have their own national network. All these networks are listed on the University of Washington site. Are earthquakes really on the increase? No, earthquakes occur at more or less at the same rate every year.
Frequently Asked Questions
Earthquakes happen all the time. The earthquake itself is thought to occur when the state of stress exceeds the strength of the fault (or rock), the fault slips suddenly, and the 'earthquake' or ground shaking begins.
For the U.S., May averages the most tornadoes, but over the years, April has had more deadly twisters. But they can happen just about any time of the year. Tornadoes are likely in the Southeastern states in the late winter and early spring. By mid-April they are more likely to occur on the southern and central Plains and on the northern Plains later in the spring and early summer.
Earthquake FAQ - UTIG
The answer depends on the size of the earthquake. Over the entire Earth, the number of earthquakes with magnitudes of 8 and greater is less than one each year. However, each year there are about 10 earthquakes of magnitude 7 or greater and 100 earthquakes of magnitude 6 or greater. No matter where they occur, these earthquakes are all powerful enough to be recorded by all or mostly all of the world's sensitive seismograph stations, such as UTIG's station HKT.
Earthquake FAQ - UTIG
Quakes do occur on the Moon, but we call them moonquakes instead of earthquakes. The Apollo space missions emplaced five seismographs on the Moon; four recorded seismic activity until 1977. Although the Moon doesn't have multiple tectonic plates like the Earth, it does have a lithosphere which acts as a single plate. Thus the tectonic inter-plate earthquakes prevalent on the Earth cannot occur on the moon. However, the Moon does experience shallow intra-plate (interior of a plate) earthquakes.

Biking Across Kansas: Frequently Asked Questions
Each rider will determine his or her own pace--you are not required to arrive at the day's destination at any set time (provided it is before dusk). SAG support is available no later than 5:00 pm, so it's a good idea to be finished by then. Typically, most BAK participants depart each morning between 7:00 and 8:00 am and arrive at the overnight destination between 1:00 and 3:00 pm. Some arrive sooner, others later.

Yes, early morning water applications are best. Cooler temperatures and less wind provide for less evaporation and distorted sprinkler patterns.
Ectopic Pregnancy Trust ~ Medical FAQ
Ectopic pregnancies commonly cause symptoms between the sixth and seventh week of pregnancy and this usually leads women to seek help at this time. However, the parameters appear to be as wide as between the 4th and 16th week of pregnancy for a tubal ectopic pregnancy, and in some cases longer for ectopic pregnancies located in other sites.

EasyTide - on-line tidal predictions from the UKHO
The reason is that when the New and Full Moon occur, the two major semi-diurnal constituents (M2 and S2) of the tide raising force are precisely in phase. Consequently, High Water Springs will always occur at about the same time of day. To say that the Spring High Water (after New and Full Moon) should occur at local midday/midnight is purely theoretical, even though, coincidentally, this may be the case at your local port.
The average fertility cycle for ovulating women starts at the beginning of one menstrual period (day 1) continuing through mid-point ovulation (day 12-14) and ending at the start of the following menstrual period (day 28). Ovulation is an egg moving from an ovary and into a fallopian tube. If the egg is not fertilized, after it has passed through the fallopian tube it is discarded by the body during the next menstrual period.
