Analysis of the tidal stress tensor at the time of moderate to large earthquakes fails to confirm an earlier hypothesis that the origin times of shallow dip-slip earthquakes correlate with solid-earth tidal shear stress. Furthermore, no correlation is seen for either tidal shear stress or tidal normal-to-the-fault compressive stress with shallow strike-slip earthquakes or with deep earthquakes.
