Abstract. Four geographical zones are defined along the trench that is formed due to the subduction of the Nazca Plate underneath the South American plate; they are denoted A, B, C and D from North to South; zones A, B, and D had a major earthquake after 2010 (Magnitude over 8.0), while zone C has not, thus offering a contrast for comparison. For each zone a sequence of intervals between consecutive seisms with magnitudes ≥ 3.0 is set up and then characterized by Shannon entropy and mutability… Expand

Revisiting the North Chile seismic gap segmentation using GPS-derived interseismic coupling
No major earthquake occurred in North Chile since the 1877 M w 8.6 subduction earthquake that produced a huge tsunami. However, geodetic measurements conducted over the last decade in this area showExpand
Interseismic coupling, segmentation and mechanical behavior of the central Chile subduction zone
Global Positioning System (GPS) measurements carried out in Chile over the last two decades showed that an entire portion of the Nazca-South America subduction zone (38°S − 24°S) was locked over thisExpand
Phenomena preceding major earthquakes interconnected through a physical model
Abstract. The analysis of earthquake time series in a new time domain termed natural time enables the uncovering of hidden properties in time series of complex systems and has been recently employedExpand
Scaling behavior of the earthquake intertime distribution: influence of large shocks and time scales in the Omori law.
TLDR
This study shows that collapse of D(Δt) is also observed in numerical catalogs; however, the fit with a Gamma distribution is possible only assuming that c depends on the main-shock magnitude m, and confirms that the dependence of c on m extends also to small m>2. Expand
Natural Time, Nowcasting and the Physics of Earthquakes: Estimation of Seismic Risk to Global Megacities
Natural Time (“NT”) refers to the concept of using small earthquake counts, for example of M > 3 events, to mark the intervals between large earthquakes, for example M > 6 events. The term was firstExpand
Introduction to Seismic Electric Signals
In the early 1980s, Varotsos and Alexopoulos showed that when the pressure (stress) on an ionic solid reaches a critical value, a cooperative orientation of the electric dipoles (that anyhow existExpand

Abstract The spatio-temporal evolution of eight seismicity populations, preceding and following moderate earthquake sequences occurred in NE-Italy and W-Slovenia, are investigated by means of theExpand
Spatiotemporal variations of seismicity before major earthquakes in the Japanese area and their relation with the epicentral locations
TLDR
It is found that some small areas show β minimum almost simultaneously with the large area and such small areas clustered within a few hundred kilometers from the actual epicenter of the related main shocks, suggesting that the present approach may help estimation of the epicentral location of forthcoming major earthquakes.

Scale-specific order parameter fluctuations of seismicity in natural time before mainshocks
We have previously shown that the probability distribution of the order parameter κ1 of seismicity in natural time turns to be bimodal when approaching a mainshock. This reflects that, for variousExpand
