Abstract

Solar wind parameters play significant roles in electromagnetic coupling of the Sun - Earth system. By having a long period of observation and analysis of solar activities and its influence on geomagnetic or seismic activities, it is possible to reveal the interconnection between them. In the present paper, we analyzed the earthquake (EQ) events as seismic parameters, which extracted from Advanced National Seismic System (ANSS) database. The different earthquake magnitudes were analyzed with the solar parameters; high-speed solar wind (HSSW) events, and solar wind dynamic pressure (SW Pdyn). All of these analyses were done from year 1964 to 2008, which covers the latest entire solar cycles (cycle number 20 to 23). In the analysis, we propose how the electromagnetic energy can be transferred from the solar wind to the lower ionosphere and finally affected the geomagnetic activities by showing the plots and the statistical analysis on plasma speed event (Vsw), solar wind dynamic pressure (SW Pdyn), solar wind input energy and ring current (Dst) index. The analyzed results show a significant relationship between solar and terrestrial parameters.
