An earthquake warning system that works to prevent the next one is just one step closer to a system that can keep you safe from the next, as a new study shows.
Key points:A new study finds a system called a “quake detection network” can be used to keep people safe from a similar event in the futureA team of researchers have been developing the technology since the late 1990sThe team has developed a method to create a network of sensors that can detect quakes in the next two to five yearsThe team says the technology has the potential to prevent hundreds of future earthquakesThe research by a group of researchers from Australia, China, Germany and the US says a new network of seismic sensors could help prevent an earthquake that occurs in the near future.
They say this system could be used for the first time to detect earthquakes in the event of a major earthquake, but this does not mean it will be widely deployed.
The team of scientists developed a network called a network detection system, or a Network Detection System, (NDS).
The researchers say the NDS can be deployed as a safety net to prevent a similar earthquake in the foreseeable future, and can be triggered automatically in case of an earthquake in a remote area.
The NDS uses sensors to monitor the movement of objects, such as buildings, roads, and people, and uses an alarm to warn people if they feel any changes to the environment, such a a change to the weather.
“A lot of the things that we are seeing in the earthquake industry, they’re not going to be able to predict an earthquake,” Dr. Andrew Zaretsky, the principal investigator on the research from the Australian National University and a professor in the School of Geosciences at RMIT University, said.
“We’re talking about earthquakes that happen thousands of kilometres away.”
Dr Zaretsky says the NDs use existing sensors in the real world to detect the vibrations of seismic vibrations, which could be similar to how the ND system works.
“They don’t have a lot of sensors in a real-world setting that can monitor the vibrations,” he said.
The researchers found that a sensor with a sensor on it that detects the vibrations in the area could be deployed to the region and trigger an alarm if the sensor detected the vibration.
This would prevent people from being trapped in the home or building.
“The system will trigger a signal from the outside, and the sensor will tell the system to get on top of it, and if there’s no signal, to try to move it out of the way and get out of harm’s way,” Dr Zareansky said.
Dr Zaresky said the sensors could be developed in a similar way to how seismometers were developed in the past.
“In the past, there was a very sophisticated and very sophisticated system that was developed to detect seismic waves, and to measure the magnitude of the waves, to measure how far they travelled and so on,” he explained.
“And then in the case of earthquakes, the earthquake wave has a magnitude, a velocity, and there’s some information about the size of the seismic wave, and so those are things that are very useful, but there’s very little data on how long it takes for the wave to travel, and how far it travels.”
Dr Michael Eriksson, the lead author of the study, said the research was focused on developing the system.
“What we were trying to do was to create the first system that is very robust and reliable and has a very robust response time to a wave that’s about 30km long and it doesn’t cause any structural damage,” he told the ABC.
“That’s what we’re looking at now.”‘
We are getting close to a world without earthquakes’Dr Zaren Siegel, the co-author of the paper, said that the idea of using sensors to detect quasars, the objects that can produce the strongest earthquakes, was new.
“It’s a new technology, and I think it’s really exciting,” he noted.
“When I was at university in the 1990s, I was talking to geophysicists and they said there’s a lot more to this technology than just detecting quasaries, there’s more than just seismic waves.”
I think there’s still a lot that we don’t know about this technology, which is why this is so exciting.
“Dr Siegel said the system was being developed to help protect people in remote areas, such those in remote towns, where earthquakes are more common.”
Because we are getting closer to the world without an earthquake, we are going to have to do something about this,” he predicted.”
But this is really exciting because it’s going to make our lives a lot safer.
