Earthquake Prediction Research Center (EPRC JAPAN) integrates and analyzes observational data of public institutions.
The purpose of EPRC JAPAN is to reduce natural disaster damage by data science.
Due to global warming, “natural disasters” such as earthquakes, typhoons, floods, etc. are increasing.
During the 20 years from 1983 to 2012, there were 2.3 million deaths due to natural disasters.
Economic loss is 260 trillion yen
Half of the damage is in Asia.
To raise analysis accuracy, more data is required.
EPRC JAPAN signed joint research with the Indonesian government.
We began collaborative research with the Meteorological Climate Geophysical Agency (BMKG), Geospatial Information Agency (BIG), Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB).
EPRC JAPAN is seeking to collaborate with many countries in the Asian region, as well as Indonesia, to conduct joint laboratory skills.
EPRC JAPAN wants to complete the distribution system of alert information 24 hours before the occurrence of an earthquake accompanied by a big tsunami with the researchers all over the world as a disaster prevention information platform in the Asian region.

Natural Disaster Analysis Report
Before large earthquake occurs, usually a different “big crustal movement” occurs.
In the case of a large crustal movement, large earthquake tends to occur in that area.
This report shows “Latest crustal movement information and Earthquake prediction” that was analyzed by the unique program that EPRC has an international patent, as the mental attitude information.

when a large tectonic value is observed, has a large earthquake occurred in the past.Therefore, the crustal movement value for each week shows the change direction by “←”, shows the variation in distance in color.
The epicenter location of earthquake that occurred in the same manner period, occurred earthquake of magnitude, in such hypocenter depth, we have displayed separately the size and color.
Abnormal crustal movements of the previous large earthquake, from that change the direction of the area is important, we have to display only the big crustal movement.
In the case of earthquakes in the sea of the plate, a major earthquake occurs in the change direction of the arrow.
In the case of a direct-type earthquake, earthquake occurs in the center of the arrow that was opened as radiation.
In addition, detailed crustal movement values and generated seismic data of various places, we have explicitly as materials in the second half.
Please look at all means the crustal movement of about point to be worried about.
【Data sources】 GPS / GLONASS / quasi-zenith satellite Daily Data：NASA International GNNS, Geographical Survey Institute GEONET.

For information provided
Earthquake prediction Research Center (EPRC) provide crustal movement information.
Everyday analysis to electronic reference point. Observed in the GPS satellite · GLONASS · Quasi-zenith satellite, etc. Daily seismic data, & daily crustal movement data from 1996.
Database EPRC is composed of various types of scientific data. Crustal movement data of 7300 days from 1996. 100 million or more times of magnitude 4 or more of the seismic data.
Maximum seismic intensity observation data of Japan 1300 places. Plate change data around the world.
Japan active fault data. Real-time seismic data around the world. GPS, GLONASS, quasi-zenith satellite, etc
Verification in the database of “earthquake before the crustal movement” for 20 years.
If the crustal movement “value” of 4 weeks. Similar crustal movement was observed, similar scale of earthquake “magnitude, maximum seismic intensity, epicenter place” to announce. But, in the past 20 years database, also earthquake approximation does not fit.
If the epicenter is 50kmover of deep earthquakes, which a large crustal movement is not observed.
Earthquake prediction information of EPRC, in addition to the satellite data analysis, also to determine source type of earthquake epicenter and the earthquake that occurred in the immediate vicinity. Accuracy of earthquake prediction information, if there is an error of about one week from several days and, in some cases to target a wide range of areas. Rapid changes in crustal movement, there is a case to modify the earthquake prediction information that was announced once.
Maintenance, repair of NASA and the Geographical Survey Institute, delays EPRC analysis.
EPRC not guarantee the earthquake prediction information provided with a high probability. please use only as an objective information.
contract company voluntary evacuation has been carried out, such as facility closure,
can not any claim for damages even in such as if there is no actual earthquake.
