Preseismic electric field "strange attractor" like precursor analysis applied on large (Ms > 5.5R) EQs, which occurred in Greece during December 1st, 2007 - April 30th, 2008
In order to investigate the capability of the preseismic electric field "strange attractor like" precursor as a time predictor of a large EQ within a short time window (short-term prediction), theExpand
Amplitude modulated, by M1, Earth's oscillating (T = 1 day) electric field triggered by K1 tidal waves. Its relation to the occurrence time of large EQs
Starting from the observation that quite often the Earth's oscillating electric field varies in amplitude, a mechanism is postulated that accounts for these observations. That mechanism is theExpand
How "Short" a "Short-term earthquake prediction" can be? A review of the case of Skyros Island,Greece, EQ (26/7/2001, Ms = 6.1 R)
The earthquake of Skyros Island in Greece (26/7/2001, Ms = 6.1 R) was announced three days before its occurrence in a meeting organized by the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Sofia on 2001. In thisExpand
On a preseismic electric field "strange attractor" like precursor observed short before large earthquakes
The Earth's electric field, recorded by two different and distant monitoring sites located in Greece, is analyzed in terms of monochromatic signals (T=24h). The analysis is based on the mappingExpand
Preseismic oscillating electric field "strange attractor like" precursor, of T = 6 months, triggered by Ssa tidal wave. Application on large (Ms > 6.0R) EQs in Greece (October 1st, 2006 - December
In this work the preseismic "strange attractor like" precursor is studied, in the domain of the Earth's oscillating electric field for T = 6 months. It is assumed that the specific oscillatingExpand
The seismogenic area in the lithosphere considered as an "Open Physical System". Its implications on some seismological aspects. Part - III. Seismic Potential
The seismic potential of any regional seismogenic area is analyzed in terms of the "open physical system" inflow - outflow energy balance model (Thanassoulas, 2008, Part - I). Following the magnitudeExpand
"Strange attractor like" electric seismic precursor observed prior to the Nafpactos, Greece, EQs of 18th / 22nd January, 2010 (Ms = 5.7R / 5.6R)
Phase maps, of the earth's electric field monitored at PYR and ATH monitoring sites in Greece, were compiled for two distinct oscillating earth's electric field components long before, during andExpand
Seismic electric precursors observed prior to the 6.3R EQ of July 1st 2009, Greece and their use in short-term earthquake prediction
The normalized raw data of the Earth's electric field, monitored at PYR, ATH, HIO monitoring sites in Greece, are studied as far as it concerns the presence of electric seismic precursors. ElectricExpand
Preseismic electric signals generated by critical stress loading of the lithosphere. A review of the type of signals obtained from a long lasted (1999 to 2012) experiment conducted in Greece
In this work a review is made of the various preseismic electric signals that have been observed before large EQs in Greece during the period of 1999 to 2012. The observed preseismic electric signalsExpand
Can large (M >= 8) EQs be triggered by tidal (M1) waves? An analysis of the global seismicity that occurred during 1901 - 2011
The analysis of two global data sets of large earthquakes (2010 - 2011, 30 samples of M \geq 7R and 1901-2011, 178 samples of M \geq 8R) reveals that there exists a cause and effect relation betweenExpand
