Scientists are able to predict earthquakes by monitoring seismic activity, analyzing patterns in past earthquakes, and collecting data from global seismic networks. Seismic monitoring can detect changes in the Earth’s crust prior to an earthquake, allowing scientists to detect precursory signals which may be indicative of an impending quake.
In addition, taking into account past seismic movements and analyzing patterns can help seismologists better understand the probability of earthquakes and when they are likely to occur. By tracking this information and collecting data from worldwide seismic networks, scientists can make more reliable predictions about future earthquakes.
