Conditional probability and time series

  1. Jun 25, 2014 #1
    I really need some help here, will appreciate any effort. I calculated time series of tidal stresses. It turned out that the probability of having positive tidal stress is 0.4 and negative - 0.6 (I counted up number of hours when the stress was positive/negative and divided by the total number of hours). I want to find out how to calculate probability of the earthquake happening during 1h around the maximum (that is when the stress is positive)? Many thanks

    The information seems too meager. You need more information about earthquake probability and the connection (if any) between earthquake and tidal stress.
