The UVS research predicates an earthquake could be triggered by the forced vortices of the mantle sphere with the precession effects of Solar System objects.
See the UVS topics on "The vortically manifested planetary orbitals" that illustrates orbits are rendered by transferred vortical motion, and "Atmospheric polar vortex" that elaborates on the paradoxical formed forced vortex pair of Earth's atmospheric polar vortex.
The cognitive paradoxes that negate to render the misconception for the driver of earthquakes, was thus meticulously resolved with the underlying vortical structure and mechanism explicated.
The grounding for its epistemic theories of truth: The underlying vortical structure and mechanism of a peculiar type of rumbling earthquake as explicated with its hypothetical construct based on the UVS model, elucidated its delusional observations that render its misconceptions, mysteries, and anomalies. Thus, its cognitive paradox could be meticulously resolved, and all the related natural phenomena were then qualitatively analysed in the conceptual framework of UVS by inductive reasoning for explicating with their empirical evidence to predicate by abductive reasoning.
See the UVS topic on "Overviews of the UVS research" that elaborates on its visual grounded theory for the evaluations of natural phenomena.
Subsuming plate tectonics, the Earth's crust is a stratified layer formed on lithosphere and has several pieces of overlapping and shifting tectonic plates that overlay on asthenosphere, which also overlays on the lower mantle sphere. The supposedly predominantly solid Earth's mantle underneath the stratified crust surface, is actually an ocean of viscous medium in geological time.
See a paper on "Jupiter and Io Observe Each Other" that elaborate on a moon of Jupiter undergoes tides and earthquakes on a 42-hour cycle as it orbits Jupiter, suggesting it is subjected to gravitational wringer that squeeze, stretch and release the moon in a cyclical manner.
If a rigid stratified layer could form on the surface on the oceans, and with the transferred motions rendered by the manifested oceanic vortices in human time scale, the rigid layer would be subjected to the torsion forces to cause movements. In geological time scale, tectonic plates overlaying on mantle, would similarly be subjected to the vortical torsion forces of the mantle sphere.
See the UVS topics on "Atmospheric polar vortex" that elaborates on the convex structures around the polar regions of the Earth are actually concave structures, "Satellite vortices of Jupiter" that evidently illustrates vortices have had formed deep inside Jupiter, and "Oceanic whirlpool" that elaborates on all sorts of naturally manifested oceanic vortices.
Paradoxically, with the circumstantial evidence that could be empirically observed, it elucidates that the primary driver for such earthquakes manifested from underneath the Earth's crust, could actually be rendered by the celestial mechanism of the Solar System.
Heuristically, the combined tidal forces of the Solar System objects in their crossed alignment arrangements, would act on the mantle sphere of Earth to internally exert tension on the tectonic plates. And with the effects of a tilted rotating Earth generated at the focal points of the paradoxically formed forced vortices of the mantle sphere, these could act on the tectonic plates to cause different types of earthquakes under different circumstances, such as the more easily caused earthquakes at the active faults, the intraplate earthquakes, or the megathrust earthquakes that could trigger tsunami events when occurred underneath the ocean.
In year 2005, there were 142 earthquakes recorded with magnitude of above 6.0 on Ritcher scale. And evidently, strong earthquake events were usually associated with the crossed alignments of aligned Solar System objects.
The stochastic analyses of a peculiar T-junction crossed alignment of Solar System objects with the epicenters highly correlated with earthquake events, constitutes as the strong evidence that such earthquakes were driven by the precession effects on a gyrating Earth with the planetary arrangements.
See a UVS paper on "The UVS case study on the barycentric drivers of the solar cycle" that illustrates how a peculiar type of planetary alignments is modulating the past solar cycles.
From the UVS perspective, an intraplate earthquake, could be caused by a wobbling forced vortex of the mantle sphere with precession effect to propagate seismic waves that oscillates the Earth with specific resonant frequencies.
Watch video clips on "Liquid sound waves on a coffee can" that demonstrates how induced sound waves could physically form standing waves in a high viscosity medium, "Perpetual Ocean" that illustrates amazing satellite views for vortices manifested in Earth's ocean, and an interactive global wind map of the Earth with "EarthWindMap" that shows all sorts of currently manifested atmospheric vortices, the global map can also be set to ocean mode for viewing oceanic currents and manifested whirlpools.
These seismic waves strongly rumbling in the affected zones are known to be propagated spherically out from a hypocenter of an earthquake, and the vibration radiating from the hypocenter is distributed in a circular manner on the Earth's crust at its epicenter. The empirical observations of hypocenters at the epicenters of intraplate earthquake events, are strong evidence that suggest such earthquakes are triggered by the vortices resonated with torque-free precession induced in the mantle sphere.
.The UVS research predicates an intraplate earthquake is caused by seismic waves generated from a forced vortex of the mantle sphere with resonated torque-free precession.
From the UVS perspective, the dynamo effect manifested in the wobbling forced vortex of the mantle sphere, could generate a detectable magnetic field that emanates from its hypocenter, as well as renders electric discharges. And satellite vortices manifested in the liquid iron outer core of the Earth, could cause the magnetic declination of its magnetosphere.
See external links on "Extending Milankovitch Earthquakes and Eruptions" that studies the drivers for earthquakes and volcano eruptions with magnetism and orbital mechanics, "More than 600 earthquakes strike small California town in swarm around Salton Sea" that reported on the concurrently observed multiple hypocenters, and "How massive volcanoes gave Mars a makeover" that reported on a cluster of active volcanoes that had concurrentlhy errupted.
See the UVS topics "Dual-core crater" that illustrates on how some peculiar pit craters could be vortically formed by manifested vortices of liquefied crust, "Tunguska event" that illustrate on how cratering events could be vortically formed, "Cometary outburst" for some illustrations of how energetic barycenters and Lagrangian points could be manifested by celestial objects in the Solar System, and "Sunspot" that illustrates how sunspots could manifest by the barycentric arrangements of Solar System objects in their precession cycles.

From the UVS perspective, when a forced vortex of the mantle sphere underneath Earth's crust is formed as a result of focused torque-induced precession, manifested with the effects of a Solar System objects arrangement, such as a T-junction crossed alignment, its resonated torque-free precession inside the Earth, has significant geological effects.
Evidently, a strong torque-induced precession on Earth, caused by its Solar System alignment effect, could trigger a volcanic eruption with a manifested standing wave formed in the mantle sphere to pressurize the magma chamber underneath a volcanic vent.
The cognitive paradox that negates to render the misconception of volcano eruptions in general, could thus be meticulously resolved with its underlying vortical structure and mechanism explicated.
On 21st May 1792 Unzen volcano erupted, this was cited as Japan's greatest volcano disaster. The Solar System arrangement for this volcano eruption event, was aligned Saturn-Earth-Jupiter-Neptune made T-junction crossed alignment with aligned Uranus-Earth , and crossed aligned with Sun-Moon-Earth.
The UVS research predicates a volcano eruption could be triggered by strong torque-induce precession of the Solar System alignment effect.
Note: This UVS visual inductive resolution merely attempts to show the underlying vortical structure and mechanism that could vortically and paradoxically drive earthquakes and volcano eruptions. Despite the suggested vortical motions rendered on lithosphere by the crossed alignments of aligned Solar Sytem objects, could be illustrated as the likely drivers for causing some significant earthquakes and volcano eruptions in the after events with their stochastic analyses, lacking the necessary geological information for the structures and their actual situations underneath the crust, it has thus been conceded that earthquakes and volcano eruptions could not be absolutely predicted with all certainties in such blinded studies. The uncertainties such as location and magnitude also apply to the observed regular monthly pattern of moonquakes, and these are irregardless of the driver for triggering the moonquakes, is always recurring periodically.

Disclaimers: The treatise of Universal Vortical Singularity (UVS) in its epistemological paradigm shift, is fundamentally unconventional. Its hypotheses grounded on a generally unheard-of UVS model, bound to have shortcomings, such as loose ends, errors, and omissions errors. Many details and assumptions in its propositions have yet to be further researched, probed, evaluated, validated, or verified. Its implicit explanations are for casual understanding of the UVS topics presented in the UVS worldview, so if any term or statement is offensive in any manner from whatsoever perspectives, is most regretted.

Viewing tips: Despite the presentations of the UVS web pages has went through much accommodation for their viewings on smart phones, they are still not entirely friendly to these mobile devices. For the best experiences, use a MS Windows based PC or computer system with Java enabled browser for running its interactive applets.
