Quote: question could those quakes in puerto rico and everywhere else be shaking up these oceans? and does that have a effect on hurricanes?
Wow.. a friend of mine has that theory, that seismic activity makes water warmer than usual... I told him he was nuts and he better not say that aloud to anyone...LOL
He is nuts. Earthquakes occur, for the most part, where the water is coldest in the ocean...on the sea floor. Now I say the for the most part because some do occur in warmer waters. But if anything, it would cause the cold water to move. I wouldn't see any positive effect on hurricanes, maybe if a volcano heated the water enough constantly, close enough to the surface.
