About Ditrianum

Ditrianum is a non-profit organization with a primary focus on seismic activity related to planetary geometry. Based in the Netherlands, Ditrianum was founded in 2002 by Frank Hoogerbeets who since childhood has a great interest in the solar system and the planets.

In the late 80s and early 90s Frank tried to find a possible correlation between the position of the planets and large seismic movement on Earth. But resources were limited in a time when data had to be collected manually, while astronomy software was (and still is) focused exclusively on geocentric observations.

Frank then changed gears and began to study geometry and number theory. Without realizing it, this study became the groundwork for analyzing critical planetary geometry.

An important piece of the puzzle was found on 23 June 2014, when three strong 6 magnitude earthquakes occurred in the South Pacific, followed by three more in the North Pacific peaking magnitude 7.9. Frank adds: "This was a very sudden and huge seismic increase in an otherwise quiet month. My first thought was: where did this energy come from? This led me to look at the planets again, this time using solar system simulation software. It was a true revelation when I found that no less than three planetary alignments converged around that day." Not only did this convergence trigger large seismic activity in the Pacific, it also generated a powerful meteo-tsunami in the Mediterranean and Black Sea due to unusual atmospheric forcing, a scientific study later revealed.

A subsequent study revealed that indeed large earthquakes in the past occurred close to but usually just after planets in the Solar System reached critical geometry. For example, the largest earthquake on record, the magnitude 9.5 earthquake on 22 May 1960, occurred a day after Mars, Mercury and Uranus aligned. Likewise, the magnitude 9.2 earthquake in Alaska on 28 March 1964 also occurred just after Mars, Mercury and Uranus aligned, this time joined by Venus. Another example is the magnitude 9.0 earthquake on 27 January 1700 at Cascadia, that occurred when Earth lined up with Mercury and Jupiter while Mercury was also aligned with the Sun and Venus.

Frank adds: "The problem with available software today is that computation of planetary positions is limited to geocentric and heliocentric coordinates only. As a result, any alignment of planets not involving the Earth or the Sun, like in 1960 and 1964, goes unnoticed.

After several months of intensive study, Frank made his first public earthquake forecast on 20 April 2015 on Facebook, in which he said that from 22 to 27 April would be critical because of specific planetary positions. Indeed, on 25 April 2015 a magnitude 7.8 earthquake occurred in Nepal.

Motivated by this successful forecast, Frank published his first earthquake forecast video on 29 April 2015 with a warning for possible large seismic activity up to magnitude 9.8 around 28 May 2015. He specifically mentioned the West coast of North America as a location that could be hit. While no large earthquake occurred on the 28th, a magnitude 6.8 earthquake occurred in Alaska early on the 29th, followed a day later by a record deep magnitude 7.8 earthquake at the Bonin Islands in the West Pacific, although the initial estimated magnitude was 8.5.

Frank adds: "We don't have these large earthquakes every day or every week. They only occur about two or three times a year. So these first forecasts based on planetary positions were very precise and quite accurate. I considered them a major success and they have fueled my motivation to continue ever since."

But critical planetary geometry does not always cause large earthquakes. Frank says: "Sometimes we only see some seismic increase up to about magnitude 6.0. Sometimes there appears to be no seismic increase at all. The key seems to be the condition of Earth's crust, whether or not an area is due for larger seismic movement. This would indicate a direct relationship between the build-up of pressure in Earth's crust and amplified electromagnetic waves coming from critical planetary geometry."

Since we do not know the condition of Earth's crust, i.e. the amount of stress between tectonic plates at various locations, an earthquake warning may be issued and subsequently canceled when no seismic increase occurs, very much like tsunami warnings.

We believe that to some extend earthquakes will always be unpredictable, especially the magnitude. But it has been proven that when planets reach critical geometry in the Solar System, seismic activity on Earth tends to go up to magnitude 6 or higher. This allows us to isolate critical time-frames. In general, not every alignment causes a seismic increase, but almost every seismic increase is caused by planetary alignments.

Contrary to what many people assume, we do not believe that gravity is responsible for larger earthquakes at the time of planetary alignments. Rather, we believe that electromagnetic waves affect Earth's crust on an atomic level causing specific vibrations to be amplified. This makes sense since electromagnetism is a stronger force than gravity. Also, gravity is related to the mass of a planet and since the mass does not change when planets align, gravity is expected to remain the same.

In time, we expect these new ideas about the planets to become more widely known. See also our introduction video "Earthquakes and Electromagnetic Waves".
