Earthquake Prediction 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.
Hit rate of EPRC report is approximately 90% or over.

[Reading report]
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.
Plate Boundary Data :The University of Texas Institute for Geophysics 
Earthquake epicenter Daily Data:United States Geological Survey, Japan Meteorological Agency.

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.

And without obtaining the prior written consent, the contract’s officers, it is not permitted to be disclosed to third parties other than employees.
It is forbidden to spread the Internet, in the SNS, etc..
