GLOBAL EARTHQUAKE FORECAST
SYSTEM

“In human history we have never come close to
forecasting earthquakes. Although, earthquake
disasters affect about 1/3rd of the world
population.”

–Prof. Friedemann Freund
at the NASA Ames Research Center

 

For 100 years the seismological community worldwide has tried – and failed – to “see” major earthquakes coming, relying on seismic, i.e. mechanical precursors. The discovery of the scientific basis that helps understand the range of electrical and electrochemical, atmospheric and ionospheric earthquake precursors provides the foundation for the development of an operational

TODAY’S “EARLY WARNING” SYSTEM

 

 

This is merely an Earthquake Announcement System as the seismic waves are already racing through the ground......

- provides 2 to 3 days lead time before any major earthquake
- combines information available from satellites, both on geostationary and
low-Earth orbits, with information available from regional ground station
networks and other ground assets
- monitors the range of signals that the Earth produces when stresses build up
deep below to dangerously high levels, heralding an increased probability of a
major seismic event
- never again a major earthquake will strike “out of the blue”
- occasional false positives have to be accepted

GeoCosmoTM GLOBAL EARTHQUAKE FORECAST SYSTEM
Main Elements

❖ Satellite-derived information on thermal infrared (TIR) emission from
the ground, on ionospheric perturbations to be separated from
geomagnetic storm effects.
❖ Regional ground sensor network has to extend over an area of at least
500 km radius, encompassing Romania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Serbia,
Greece, and Turkey.
❖ Data platform for data analysis, evaluation and forecasting.
❖ Web-Mobile Apps for alerts communication
