San Andreas Fault Earthquake and How Earling Can Save You from it

Open Quake Alert is a real-time seismic risk monitoring and early warning system from Earling. Earling uses a network of sensors and artificial intelligence to detect the subtle changes in the Earth’s crust that precede an earthquake. It simplifies the usage of short-term seismic risk for the public sector by end-users.

Earling has proven its effectiveness in detecting the risk of recent significant earthquakes that hit California in December 2021 and December 2022 with magnitudes of 6.2 and 6.4 respectively. These quakes caused significant damage and injuries in rural parts of the state. Earling was able to sense the strain accumulation on the fault and warn its specialists, authorities and users 3 days before the quakes occurred. Earling also provided a real-time earthquake risk map of the expected shaking intensity and duration based on the location and magnitude of the quakes.

These earthquakes were especially challenging to predict because they occurred on unknown faults that were not mapped by geologists. The San Andreas fault is a complex system of fractures that can rupture in different ways and produce different levels of shaking. Earling’s technology can overcome this limitation by analyzing the seismic signals directly from the source and not relying on pre-existing fault models.

Our mission is to improve the safety and resilience of people living in earthquake-prone regions like California and Nevada. With Open Quake Alert, you can stay informed about the seismic risk in your area and take action when it matters most. You can also access historical data and forecasts of future seismic activity on the San Andreas fault and other nearby faults.
