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.
In other 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.
In 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.
In July 2015, it completed its second highly successful earthquake prediction test program.
Special Item December 15, 2016: Members of the management and Associate Scientists at the IEVPC have published an important book, Upheaval! Why Catastrophic Earthquakes Will Soon Strike the United States, available at Amazon.
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.
