Are Earthquakes More Likely During Full Moons? That’s a Myth, Study Finds

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/18/scie ... ycles.html

SPOILERS

Quote:
To analyze the supposed link, Susan Hough, a seismologist at the United States Geological Survey, scrutinized 204 earthquakes of magnitude 8 or greater over the past four centuries. She then matched those earthquakes to the lunar calendar and found that no more occurred during a full or new moon than on any other day of the lunar cycle.

Fossilized Feature Records Moon's Slow Retreat from Earth

http://www.astrowatch.net/2018/02/fossi ... -slow.html

Quote:
About two hundred years ago, French mathematician and physicist Pierre-Simon Laplace determined that the moon’s equatorial bulge was too large (by twenty times) for its one-revolution-per-month rotational rate. Scientists have theorized that the moon, born hot, rotated fast after its formation and possessed an equatorial bulge much greater in size than it does today. The bulge tended to shrink in adjustment to reduced rotational force as the moon moved farther from the Earth and reduced its rotational rate, until the moon cooled and stiffened enough to have solidified a permanent bulge in its crust, creating the feature known as the fossil bulge.
