Earthquake Early Warning



Earthquakes are perilous and inevitable natural events, causing severe damage and loss of life.

There is no proven method to forecast the precise occurrence time of an earthquake nor its location or size.

Yet, utilising state of the art scientific methodologies as done in GeoSIG Earthquake Early Warning (EEW) solution, it is now possible to quite accurately assess the location and size as soon as an earthquake emerges using its non- destructive primary waves.

Thus, warnings about a potential strong shaking can be generated almost instantaneously , until destructive secondary seismic waves arrive.

Based on fast and reliable communication channels, this provides the crucial seconds to take measures which may help reduce catastrophic impacts of seismic events.

After an earthquake, GeoSIG Rapid Response (RR) solution provides analytic and thematic information on the aftermath of the earthquake in terms of shake maps consisting of observed ground motion parameters as well as estimated damage distribution.
