This paper looks into the relation between Solar Winds and Earthquakes. While both of these are very different and unrelated events at first, but looking into it deeply can provide some clarity on the interactions between these solar energy molecules and the Earth. This paper takes the idea from different studies that have been done in the past regarding the Solar flares, earthquakes and solar wind. To make it clear, only the proton density which is one of the major indicators of the solar wind variations have been used in this study. The region of consideration for the earthquakes is Latin America (coast of Columbia, Ecuador, Chile, parts of Bolivia and Argentina). This data has been procured from USGS, which is the single largest repository of all the earthquakes around the world. The Solar wind data has been taken from the ACE satellite data repository by Caltech. The study involves Clustering, Pattern recognition and visual identification of anomalies and similarities. This project simply serves as a stepping stone for the future projects related to the field of Astrophysics.
