Earthquake Prediction by Seismic Electric Signals: The success of the VAN method over thirty years
1. EARTHQUAKES, SEISMOLOGY. THE VAN EARTHQUAKE PREDICTION METHOD.- 2. HOW THE VAN RESEARCH ON EARTHQUAKES PREDICTION STARTED.- 3. THE PROCEDURE FOR THE MEASUREMENTS. THE TELEMETRIC VAN NETWORK ANDExpand
Identifying the occurrence time of an impending mainshock: a very recent case
The procedure by means of which the occurrence time of an impending mainshock can be identified by analyzing in natural time the seismicity in the candidate area subsequent to the recording of aExpand
Disastrous earthquakes in Killini-Vartholomio, 1988
On 22 September and 16 October 1988, two earthquakes occurred with magnitudes of 5.6 and 6.0 in the Killini-Vartholomio area (western Peloponnese) and caused extensive damage. Thousands of homes wereExpand
Seismic electric signals in seismic prone areas
The Varotsos-Alexopoulos-Nomicos (VAN) method of short-term earthquake prediction was introduced in the 1980s. The VAN method enables estimation of the epicenter, magnitude and occurrence time of anExpand
MW9 Tohoku earthquake in 2011 in Japan: precursors uncovered by natural time analysis
This paper reviews the precursory phenomena of the 2011 MW9 Tohoku earthquake in Japan that emerge solely when we analyze the seismicity data in a new time domain termed natural time. If we do notExpand
VAN evaluations, 1995, 1996
On 11–12 May 1995, an international conference entitled “A Critical Review of VAN – Earthquake Prediction from Seismic Electric Signals” was held in the halls of the Royal Society of London. ThisExpand
The International Prize of the Onassis Foundation, 1995
On 7 April 1995, the Alexander S. Onassis Public Benefit Foundation announced its prestigious awards. One out of the four award-winning people was Varotsos. The ceremony was to take place on 11 JulyExpand
Third evaluation of VAN, 1992, 1995
The National Research Foundation of the USA (National Science Foundation), as part of its plan to minimize the risk from earthquakes (National Earthquake Hazard Reduction Program) organized anExpand
Natural time analysis: Estimation of the occurrence time of a major earthquake from the entropy changes of the preceding seismicity.
<p>By analyzing the seismicity in the new time domain termed natural time [1],&#160; the entropy changes of seismicity before major earthquakes have been studied. It was found [2-5] that the keyExpand
Earthquake in Grevena-Kozani, 1995
As explained in Chapter 12, a conference was held at the Royal Society of London on 11–12 May 1995. The following day, May 13, Varotsos and I were returning to Greece together with the JapaneseExpand
