Earthquake Forecasting System (EQFS) Principle Concepts• EQFS: world’s first earthquake forecasting algorithm using NASA’s System Engineering approach.• EQFS combines historical EQ fault information with multi-source real time data from satellites and ground observations.• EQFS uses computer modeling and testability analysis to simulate an EQ as a system with many interactive subsystems: • Input • Output • Feedback • Precursory functionality.• EQFS uses a probability quantification analysis for simplistic computation: • Less chance for error • Easy comprehension • Easy communication • Quick and easy updating and modification.• EQFS finds probability of an EQ of a given magnitude range within a given time window for a given geographical area.
