Application of M8 and MSc algorithms since 1985

Outline

Are earthquakes predictable?

By 1992 all the components necessary for reproducible
real-time prediction, i.e., an unambiguous definition of the algorithms and the data base, were specified in publications

Case history of the South Sumatera Earthquake

This implies local probability gain of more than 20

Worldwide performance of earthquake prediction algorithms M8 and M8-MSc: Magnitude 8.0 or more.

Real-time monitoring ( http://www.mitp.ru or http://www.phys.ualberta.ca/mirrors/mitp )

Worldwide performance of earthquake prediction algorithms M8 and M8-MSc: Magnitude 7.5 or more.

Two more case histories
