Convener:*Katsumi Hattori(Department of Earth Sciences, Graduate School of Science, Chiba University), Dimitar Ouzounov(Chapman University), Jann-Yenq Tiger Liu(National Central University), Qinghua Huang(Peking University), Chair:Peng Han(Department of Earth Sciences, Graduate School of Science, Chiba University)
This session expands the interdisciplinary discussions on preparation process of earthquake and earthquake predictability by presenting the latest progress in studying the physically based pre-earthquake phenomena. New observations from space and ground have provided evidences, which may enhance better understanding of tectonic activity. The session anticipates talks that include but not limited to observations and analyses of seismic, electrical, electromagnetic, electro-chemical and thermodynamic processes related to stress changes in the lithosphere along with their statistical and physical validation. Presentations on the latest observational results associated with major earthquakes obtained by different methodologies are welcomed. The topics of the session are as follows but not limited.
-General discussion on earthquake preparation process and the physics of pre-earthquake signals
- Theory, modeling, laboratory experiments, computational simulation for generation and propagation of pre-earthquake signals and their connection with seismic cycle
- Multi-parameter observations, detection, and validation of pre-earthquake signals
- Cross-disciplinary studies, practical and technical approaches for better understanding of earthquake preparation processes and their connection with seismicity
