The International Earthquake and Volcano Prediction Center (IEVPC), now a 501(c)(3)
tax-exempt charity, was founded in February 2012 by a team of scientists and other experts with established track records
for excellence in science research, especially tectonics, volcanism, seismic research, management, and other skills necessary
for achieving the Mission and Objectives of the IEVPC.This team originated after its
founders realized that there were strong correlations between the occurrences of earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic activity,
solar activity, and precursor geophysical events.
These precursors have been studied for many years by the IEVPC founders, staff scientists
and researchers who represent the primary body of expertise in understanding these early signals that catastrophic geophysical
events (CGE) are about to strike.
words, they determined that through an understanding of events leading up to these geological hazards, that they could greatly
improve the predictive capability for earthquakes. Further, it has been shown that a combination of the leading-edge technology
employed by the IEVPC science team can lead to a substantial improvement in the lead time from precursor signal detection
to the actual CGE event transpiring.
December 2012 the IEVPC concluded its highly successful initial earthquake prediction test program during which it validated
its process for improving detection of major earthquakes for multiple types of quakes in various locations.
July 2015, it completed its second highly successful earthquake prediction test program.
The latest press
release from the IEVPC for July 24, 2017 discusses the latest successes of the IEVPC's earthquake prediction process. See
it now at the "Press Releases" page at this site.
A new Catastrophic Geophysical Event Warning Notice (CWN) was issued
on January 15, 2018 for Northwestern India. See CGE Warning Notices.
