Predicting earthquakes through digging satellite data

  title={Predicting earthquakes through digging satellite data},
  author={S. Newaz},
Earthquake is, perhaps, still considered as the foremost unpredictable natural disaster experienced to date. Even though, predicting an earthquake remains an elusive goal to scientists over the last several decades, we are still to achieve a good prediction mechanism for earthquakes. To this extent, in this study, we propose a new mechanism for predicting earthquakes. Our mechanism enables prediction around four months prior to happening of an earthquake. To do so, we analyze open satellite… Expand


Intermediate-term Predictions of Earthquakes in Italy: Algorithm M8
Abstract—Large earthquakes in Italy are preceded by a specific seismic activation which could be diagnosed by a reproducible intermediate-term earthquake prediction method—a modification for lowerExpand
Earthquake Prediction: An Overview
This chapter focuses on prediction of earthquakes. Because earthquakes occur suddenly, often with devastating consequences, earthquake prediction is a matter of great interest among the public andExpand
Time‐predictable recurrence model for large earthquakes
We present historical and geomorphological evidence of a regularity in earthquake recurrence at three different sites of plate convergence around the Japan arcs. The regularity shows that the largerExpand
Regional gravity decrease after the 2010 Maule (Chile) earthquake indicates large‐scale mass redistribution
[1] We report small but detectable changes in the GRACE satellites' relative trajectory after the M8.8 Maule, Chile earthquake on 27 February 2010 that can be used to delineate the shift in theExpand
GRACE detects coseismic and postseismic deformation from the Sumatra‐Andaman earthquake
[1] We show that spherical harmonic (SH) solutions of the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) are now of sufficient quality to observe effects of co-seismic and post-seismic deformationExpand
Coseismic gravity changes of the 2011 Tohoku‐Oki earthquake from satellite gravimetry
[1] The massive Tohoku-Oki earthquake of a moment magnitude (Mw) of 9.0 occurred on 11 March, 2011 off the Pacific coast of the Northeastern Japan. The mass redistribution in and around the focalExpand
Physical criterion to evaluate seismic activity associated with the seismic cycle of great interplate earthquakes
A new criterion is introduced to judge if the vicinity of the source region of a great interplate earthquake is in an ‘active period’. It is based on the stress change caused by the great earthquake.Expand
Seismology: Speed and size of the Sumatra earthquake
Now that the entire rupture zone has slipped, the strain accumulated from the subduction of the Indian plate beneath the Burma microplate has been released, and there is no immediate danger of a similar tsunami being generated on this part of the plate boundary, although large earthquakes on segments to the south still present a threat. Expand
Coseismic gravity changes of the 2010 earthquake in central Chile from satellite gravimetry
[1] The first map of coseismic changes in gravity and geoid height has been drawn using the data from the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) satellites for the 2004 Sumatra-AndamanExpand
Latest aspects of earthquake prediction in Greece based on seismic electric signals, II☆
Abstract Since 1983, continuous monitoring of the electrotelluric field has been carried out using an array of measuring stations located at various sites in Greece. The basic physical properties ofExpand
