Can warmer air trigger earthquakes or landslides?

    Earthquakes are solely the result of tectonic plate movement and are not affected by the weather. New studies however have found that weather can trigger landslides though. Changes in air pressure and speed as a result of changing air fronts and other atmospheric phenomenon have recently been indicted in many suspect landslides throughout the globe. Most of these ‘landslides’ move only a few millimeters or inches at most, but these can contribute larger, more deadly landslides and can even trigger them if too much rock and soil comes loose from even the tiniest changes in air pressure.
