Science Results for Everyone
One day, instruments located in space may give us advance warning of earthquakes. This study of seismic events show that it may be possible to predict earthquakes based on bursts of high-energy charged particles in near-Earth space. Scientists mapped the location of particle bursts, then analyzed correlation between those and known quakes. They identified particle bursts that could have predicted earthquakes registering more than 4 on the Richter scale. Some bursts group along tectonic fault lines and in zones of disturbance of Earth’s radiation belt.  About 15 percent of particle bursts may be seismic in nature and precede earthquakes by several hours.
