Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Remotely triggered earthquakes have also been characterized as "the very long reach of very large earthquakes."Fundamentally, it is postulated that large earthquakes can have an influence outside of the immediate aftershock zone, and actually activate other earthquakes at considerable distance . The further one gets from the initiating earthquake in both space and time, the more controversial is the association. The physics involved in actually triggering an earthquake is complex. Most earthquake-generating zones are in a state of being close to failure. If such a zone were to be left completely alone, it would generate significant earthquakes spontaneously. Remote earthquakes, however, are in a position to disturb this critical state, either by shifting the stresses statically, or by dynamic change caused by passing seismic waves.
