MONITORING

Global monitoring results

The method of seismic entropy is based on the concept of Seismic System, which are identified in seismic regions from the position of plate tectonics (shaded areas in Fig. 1).

Plate motion

96% of earthquakes on Earth occur under compression conditions in the zones of interaction between the lithospheric plates (90% belong to the Pacific Plate and 6% to the Mediterranean-Alpine-Himalayan belt).
In spreading zones during stretching, less than 1% of the earth's seismic energy is released.

Products
We cooperate with public and private companies. Cutting-edge technologies are embodied into our products.
1
Computer systems for global monitoring
2
Specialized computer programs
3
Commercial information in the form of newsletters, advertising, animation
4
Commercial software for the industry
To make the most use of the available software products customers will be educated to use the program independently and update the input data from the Internet, while we will be duplicating the monitoring on our side as well. We will provide input data updates quarterly to ensure we are in sync.
Existing customers will be able to obtain new and improved versions of our software at a discount.
Accuracy of the computer technology forecasts
Forecast using the method of seismic entropy is produced based on the the pre-specified conditions
1
The earthquake prediction accuracy from 6 months to 1 week, depending on the specific situation;
2
The magnitude accuracy of the forecast of +-0,1; large deviations in magnitude are discussed separately;
3
The accuracy of the earthquake's predicted place on the Earth's surface and depth of focus is limited by the size of the SS and can reach the depth of the predicted earthquake;
4
If a strongly anticipated earthquake zone is indicated within the SS, then the possibility of a strong earthquake occurring in other places within the SS is automatically excluded, meaning the entire volume of SS is controlled;
5
Depending on the development of the seismic situation, the results of the forecast may change and be refined over time;
6
Instability (predicted earthquake location) can migrate within the SS from one fault zone to another, the predicted time of earthquake can get delayed or expedited and, accordingly, the magnitude of the expected earthquake can change (all of these details are incorporated in the method);
7
SS elements in a limited time interval (from 1 to 6 months) can be in an unstable state, and if during this time a strong earthquake does not occur, the system will return to a stable state;
The reliability of SS forecasts are divided into four levels
After each strong earthquake, the forecast quality improves and over time all SS will be moved to the first level of reliability
1
I level (reliable)
the number of completed seismic cycles ≥ 15;
2
II level (good)
the number of completed seismic cycles ≥ 10;
3
III level (mediocre)
the number of completed seismic cycles ≥ 5;
4
IV level (bad)
the number of completed seismic cycles from 2 to 5.
