Predicting earthquakes using ionospheric total electron content anomalies- study

A new study published recently in Remote Sensing proposes the implementation of machine learning support vector machine (SVM) technique, applied with GPS ionospheric total electron content (TEC) pre-processed time series estimations, to evaluate potential precursors caused by earthquakes.

Electromagnetic anomalies occurring before large earthquakes

Electromagnetic anomalies occurring before large earthquakes

A new study published in Earth, Planets and Space sheds new light on the electromagnetic anomalies occurring before large earthquakes. The research supports the hypothesis that fault rupture progresses just before an earthquake, and the invading gas is charged and…

Forecasting earthquakes 5 days ahead, research

Forecasting earthquakes 5 days ahead, research

An international team of scientists reporting in Doklady Earth Sciences discovered that with an impending earthquake, the parameters of internal gravity waves (IGWs) can change several days before the seismic event. IGW is the fluctuation of air masses, which, in…

New model could help predict major earthquakes

New model could help predict major earthquakes

A Nagoya University-led team reveals the mechanisms behind different earthquakes at a plate boundary on the west coast of South America, shedding light on historical seismic events and potentially aiding prediction of the future risk from these natural disasters….

Study links big earthquakes to Earth-Moon-Sun alignments

Study links big earthquakes to Earth-Moon-Sun alignments

In a new study published in Nature Geoscience yesterday, Japanese researchers have found that many of the largest earthquakes occurred near the time of maximum tidal strain — or during new and full moons when the Sun, Moon, and Earth align. The possibility…

Groundwater chemistry as a precursor for earthquakes: The Iceland experience

Groundwater chemistry as a precursor for earthquakes: The Iceland experience

Even during ancient times, our predecessors have used numerous precursor signals for upcoming natural disasters. Groundwater chemistry is one of them and according to latest scientific researches it has been observed to change before earthquakes. Alasdair Skelton from
