Earthquake Prediction through Animal Behavior: A Review

  title={Earthquake Prediction through Animal Behavior: A Review},
  author={Neeti Bhargava and Vineet Katiyar and Mukat L. Sharma and P. Pradhan},
This paper presents a review of the work done in earthquake prediction using abnormal animal behavior. The earthquake prediction can be done using the abnormal behavior of animals preceding earthquake occurrence in seismically active region because of their relatively more capability than humans of perceiving certain kind of geophysical stimuli which may precede earthquake. The international work specially carried out in China, Japan, USA has been summarized. Further, the data requirement for… 
Analysis on Predicting Earthquakes through an Abnormal Behavior of Animals
This paper presents an abnormal animal behaviour in an earthquake prediction. The earthquake prediction can be done using the abnormal behaviour of animals preceding earthquake occurrence in
Can animals predict earthquakes?
In public perception abnormal animal behavior is widely assumed to be a potential earthquake precursor, in strong contrast to the viewpoint in natural sciences. Proponents of earthquake prediction
To what extent can animals aid earthquake prediction
Earthquakes are very hard to predict. Even when Scientists believe an earthquake is likely, it is still hard to comprehend what the probability implies and what precautions should be taken. In this
Study on Techniques of Earthquake Prediction
This paper is focused on statistics and soft computing techniques to analyze the earthquake data and apply the fuzzy logic rules to predict the impact of earthquake.
Journal of Theoretical and Applied Information Technology
This paper aims to describe the circular model of energy flow during earthquake, similar to a damping oscillator, compared to a power inverse law.
Predicting Damage to Buildings Caused by Earthquakes Using Machine Learning Techniques
The analysis reveals that Random forest method has outperformed the neural network approach for building damage prediction and the F1 score using the random forest classification has been obtained as 74.32%.
Study on Techniques of Earthquake Prediction
Fuzzy logic methods are used to predict the earthquake, stock market changes, weather forecasting and gold price changes, and an artificial intelligence and pattern recognition methods for prediction are described.
Abnormal Animal Behavior Prior to the Vrancea (Romania) Major Subcrustal Earthquakes
The goal of this paper is to present some observations about the abnormal animal behavior prior to and during some Romanian subcrustal earthquakes. The major Vrancea earthquakes of 4 March 1977 (MW =
On the Precursory Abnormal Animal Behavior and Electromagnetic Effects for the Kobe Earthquake (M~6) on April 12, 2013
After the 2011 Tohoku earthquake (EQ), there have been numerous aftershocks in the eastern and Pacific Ocean of Japan, but EQs are still rare in the western part of Japan. In this situation a


Earthquake Prediction by Animals: Evolution and Sensory Perception
Animals living within seismically active regions are subjected episod- ically to intense ground shaking that can kill individuals through burrow collapse, egg destruction, and tsunami action.
Unusual animal behavior before earthquakes: A review of possible sensory mechanisms
To determine whether reports of unusual animal behavior before earthquakes are plausible, we have compared these reports with recent laboratory studies of animal sensory thresholds. Our major
When the Snakes Awake: Animals and Earthquake Prediction
In this book, he presents the first plausible explanation of why animals behave in unusual ways prior to the onset of an earthquake.
The authors of this technical paper focus on the seismic response of liquefaction sites by evaluating the transient shear strains and strong-motion characteristics at Treasure Island during the 1989
Multilayer Capacitor Model of the Earth's Upper Crust
In this study, an equivalent electric circuit model of Earth’s upper crust is proposed to explain the behavior of measurement patterns acquired from network of the earthquake forecast project. A
Ground electric field effects on rats and sparrows : Seismic anomalous animal behaviors (SAABs)
Electric field effects on behaviors of albino rats, Mongolian gerbils (sand rats), hair-footed Djungarian hamsters, guinea pigs and red sparrows (Avadavat) have been investigated in order to
Alignment silkworms as seismic animal anomalous behavior (SAAB) and electromagnetic model of a fault: a theory and laboratory experiment
Alignment of silkworms and fish, observed as seismic anomalous animal behavior (SAAB) prior to the Kobe earthquake, were duplicated in a laboratory by applying a pulsed electric field assuming SAAB
Electromagnetic pulses generated by compression of granitic rocks and animal behavior
experiments on granite, basalt and marbles were made using a 500-ton compression machine with simultaneous detection of acoustic emission, electromagnetic (EM) waves. Attempts were made to reproduce

Response of High-Rise and Base-Isolated Buildings to a Hypothetical Mw 7.0 Blind Thrust Earthquake
This work simulated the near-source ground motions of a Mw 7.0 thrust earthquake and mathematically modeled the response of a 20-story steel-frame building and a 3-story base-isolated building to answer the question of how these two types of buildings perform if a large earthquake occurs beneath a metropolitan area.
