1. Seismic activity monitoring: This involves monitoring patterns of seismic activity in order to predict the likelihood of an earthquake.
2. Geological surveys: Collecting data from seismic surveys and deep drilling can be used to infer subsurface structures and faults that may be prone to earthquakes.
3. Instrumental recordings: Scientists record changes in ground motion, temperature, and radon gas levels that may provide clues about potential earthquakes.
4. Geodetic measurements: This method looks at deformations to Earth’s crust caused by a potential earthquake to measure the possibility of its occurrence.
5. Statistical methods: Analyzing historical data for patterns of past earthquakes can help scientists make probabilistic forecasts about future events.
