More Detail


The data analysis of observations of seismic activity was conducted over the period of 2008-2012. The information about the quantity of seismic events which took place, the released seismic energy, and the distribution of parameters within the periods has been estimated. The lgN (K) dependency graph for the earthquake K = 11-15 ahs been plotted for South Yakutia region. The data resulting observations and the analysis conducted allow to identify the potential geophysical forerunners of earthquakes, determine their relationship to seismic activity in South Yakutia. The reliable forerunners of earthquakes have been indicated for the rapid assessment of seismic hazard. It is concluded that the anomalous distribution of seismic events in time leads to the possibility of constructing a model of seismic events with the necessary condition for the significant number of experiments conduct in order to obtain more reliable estimates of random variables in the model. Conducting a comprehensive interpretation of the observed geophysical forerunners, comparison of graphs of geophysical parameters, taking into account previous earthquake foreshocks make possible to forecast the approximate place of occurrence and the strength of earthquakes.
