The short-term EQ prediction on the basis of non-seismic technique is an intriguing problem since conventional seismic techniques provide us with long-term EQ forecast but cannot predict an impendingExpand
Investigating the time-correlation properties in self-potential signals recorded in a seismic area of Irpinia, southern Italy
Recent studies have shown that many natural phenomena are characterized by temporal fluctuations with long-range power-law correlations, suggesting a fractal geometry of the underlying dynamicalExpand
Fractal approaches in investigating the time dynamics of self-potential hourly variability
Fractal tools have been used to investigate the time dynamics of hourly self-potential data, recorded during the year 2001 by five geoelectrical stations located in one of the most seismic areas ofExpand
Monofractal and multifractal characterization of geoelectrical signals measured in southern Italy
Abstract Fractal tools have been used to characterize the temporal fluctuations in the dynamics of hourly geoelectrical signals, measured from January 2001 to February 2002 by four stations installedExpand
1/fα Fluctuations in geoelectrical signals observed in a seismic area of Southern Italy
Abstract Recent studies have shown that many natural systems display temporal fluctuations with long-range power-law correlations, suggesting a fractal geometry of the underlying dynamical system.Expand

TLDR
Characterizing the temporal fluctuations of the geoelectrical time series by means of the DFA scaling exponent, it is recognized significant relationships with the earthquake activity of the area. Expand
Contributions to a History of Earthquake Prediction Research
For about twenty-five centuries observations have been made of a great number of possible precursory phenomena of seismic events, and related data have been gathered and recorded by observers,Expand
Linear and nonlinear dynamics in electrical precursory time series: implications for earthquake prediction
Abstract The time dynamics of geoelectrical precursory time series has been investigated using autoregressive models. The approach used here allows us to obtain information on the geophysical systemExpand
Costs and benefits of earthquake prediction studies in Greece
SUMMARY For the following reasons, a (hypothetical) successful earthquake prediction in Greece would be of, at best, limited benefit to society. (1) On average, less than 5 per cent of sizeableExpand
Dicing with earthquakes
The VAN group have been publicizing claims to be predicting earthquakes since 1981. Their predictions of two basic parameters of earthquakes, magnitude and location, are very loosely constrained.Expand
