Meeting of the Center for Innovation and High Technology
- March 10, 2020
On 6 March 2020, the meeting of the Center for innovation and high technology considered a report “The model of electromagnetic radiation existent before earthquake and the methods for predicting strong earthquakes” presented by PhD Manana Kachakhidze and PhD Nino Kachakhidze-Murphy. The speakers noted that in the periods of earthquake preparation, occurrence and the aftermath (before the aftershocks slow down), almost all geophysical fields experience anomalous anxiety. The researchers managed to classify the aforementioned anomalous geophysical fields and they found out that electromagnetic radiation prior to an earthquake can be considered the only field that carries the information about earthquake preparation from the seismic source, based on which it becomes possible to determine the three parameters necessary for predicting large earthquake (magnitude, epicenter and time of occurring). The team members developed a model for generating this radiation and methodology for predicting earthquakes which was presented to the European Geophysical Assembly. The studies of Georgian researches were found completely different and original in terms of earthquake prediction and it was proposed to test the mentioned methodology on real data. On the bases of these data, there have been developed the methods for forecasting strong earthquakes, which, in the case of monitoring low-frequency electromagnetic radiation before an earthquake, make it possible to simultaneously determine all three parameters necessary for earthquake prediction.
