A global team working on an earthquake early-warning system for Europe

A global team working on an earthquake early-warning system for Europe
Description

Even 10 seconds can make a difference. When Japan was hit by the earthquake in 2011, early-warning systems were in place, and within seconds even the high-speed 'bullet' trains stopped. About half of Europe is also a high-risk earthquake area, especially Mediterranean countries like Greece, Italy, and other regions around the Black Sea.

Results

The project developed a novel, early-warning capability for Europe using the initial, information-carrying wave produced by earthquakes.
