EARTHQUAKE PREDICTION CENTER
The Earthquake Prediction Center at QuakeWatch.net is the home of the study of pre-seismic signals, and the practice of earthquake forecasting. Below you can find two portals, one to the information and statistics surrounding the forecasting method and real-world results of the model in practice. To learn more about the work being done, click The Model below. To find a hub of forecasting tools and an explanation of how we use them in our model, click Prediction Center below. The Earthquake Prediction Center at QuakeWatch.net is a division of SpaceWeatherNews and is supported by the collective of nearly 300,000 “Suspicious0bservers”. The model was formulated by performing a thorough survey and review of the available literature on pre-seismic signals, like foreshock patterns, ground ion changes, atmospheric and electromagnetic factors. The most robust and reliably-available factors were chosen to combine into a real-world-practice model that seeks to use these factors to actively reduce the global active fault area by 80 to 90%, finding the 10 to 20% of of earth most at-risk of a large and significant earthquake at that time (usually M6+). The model has been successfully predicting the location of these large earthquakes, within that 10 to 20%, approximately 80% of the time. While informational only (not actionable) at this time, this is the beginning of useful earthquake forecasting of damaging events. Public earthquake forecasting is now open.
