Predicting Earthquakes With GPS

July 21st, 2012

ScientistProfessor Kosuke Heki of Hokkaido University in Japan may have found a way to predict earthquakes. The upper atmosphere is disrupted by the long-wave sounds associated with an earthquake, and this disruption can be measured by changes in GPS signals. Professor Heki noticed, however, that the disruption begins about an hour before many earthquakes, thus providing the ability to predict them.
