The time for tsunamis.
Tad S. Murty reports in TSUNAMI NEWSLETTER (Vol. XVII, No. 1) that the months of November, August and March showed an unusually high number of tsunamis relative to the monthly average of 26.8; July and April had a low number. Murty calculates that the probability of obtaining this distribution purely by chance is only 1 in 40. He concludes that his results can only suggest, not prove, a month-related dependence for tsunamis.
