Improving the forecasting of earthquakes

Cécile Michaut - 25/08/2011

Although we can predict seismic movements on the surface for a given tremor, we still cannot predict the occurrence of these tremors. Very long-term research will be needed. Nathalie Glinsky, a member of the Nachos project team and of the Mediterranean Centre for Technical Equipment Studies (CETE), and Etienne Bertrand, a researcher at CETE Méditerranée, tell us more.

Earthquakes and tsunamis

Cécile Michaut, Céline Acharian - 24/08/2011

It all began with an earthquake in Japan four months ago. The unexpected magnitude, the sheer violence of the elements and a tragic sequence of causes presented a formidable challenge for our scientific knowledge and warning systems. Today, researchers are doubling their efforts to find new models and to adapt existing solutions. The aim is to improve anticipation and the supply of information, in order to enhance protection measures and better manage risks. The research areas are numerous, with the scale of these traumatic events matched only by the commitment of the scientists. Below follow several examples.
