Processing Russian and European EARTH observations for earthQUAKE precursors Studies
A large scientific documentation is to-date available about the appearance of anomalous space-time patterns of geophysical parameters measured from days to week before earthquakes occurrence. Nevertheless, up to now no single measurable parameter, no single observational methodology has demonstrated to be sufficiently reliable and effective for the implementation of an operational earthquake prediction system. To this aim, the combined use of different observations/parameters together with the refinement of data analysis methods, are expected to give major improvements in order to reduce false alarm rates and improve reliability and precision of predictions.
The project “PRE-EARTHQUAKES” intends to commit EU and Russian researchers to integrate different observational data and to improve, by cross validating, their methodologies, in order:
The project is a first step in developing an operational earthquake warning service.
