Information - NP4.05/US8 Earthquake prediction: what can be done with the best science available? (co-organized by US) (co-listed in NH & SM)
The symposium is motivated by the critical importance of advances in earthquake prediction research both for frontier fundamental science and for reduction of earthquake-induced disasters, which threat is already unacceptable and keeps growing rapidly. The symposium will review existing paradigms related to earthquakes and explore practical realistic approaches to the earthquake prediction problem. Statements on unpredictability of earthquakes will be challenged. The key-note presentations will introduce (i) the recent advances in understanding predictability of earthquakes, including related structures, driving forces, and observable fields; (ii) scenarios of response to predictions; (iii) avenues of further progress in the field arising from yet untapped data, modelling, and theories; and (iv) implications for general concepts of non-linear dynamics, including predictability of extreme events other than earthquakes.
