Earthquake Warning soon

unnamedScientists, Geophysicists, and Seismologists of 27 countries are working under India’s leadership to develop early warning system for earthquakes to predict them seconds before they occur. Before earthquakes chemical changes under earth’s surface and displacements on the surface occur. Parameters are developed to analyze these changes and the quakes can be predicted. India will launch a satellite by 2019 which will send images of surface displacement. Deep bore wells filled with sensors and equipment will be put in place in seismically active regions to sense the chemical and physical changes. As many as 22 States are prone to earthquakes. Secretary, Ministry of Earth Sciences, Shailesh Nayak at a summit on ‘Combating Earthquake Disasters’ in Kolkata said a model is developed to reduce human casualties.
