Turkey Feb 6 2023 M7.8 Earthquake; Proved Predictability of the Turkey Earthquakes


On the midnight of February 6th, 2023, a catastrophic M7.8 earthquake struck the Nurdağı region of Turkey with 50 PGV, leaving behind a trail of destruction and devastation. However, what sets this earthquake apart from others is the fact that Earling short-term seismic risk models were able to successfully predict its arrival a few days in advance.

At Earling, we understand the importance of providing timely and accurate information to the public, especially in high-risk areas. Our models use advanced technology and data analysis to identify patterns and patterns in seismic activity, helping us to identify high-risk time frames with increasing accuracy.

In the case of the Nurdağı earthquake, our models detected a high-risk seismic time-window a few days before the February 6 M7.8 violent earthquake. This advance warning allow people to prepare themselves and their homes, reducing the damage and loss of life that can cause by the future earthquakes.

Success in detecting the Nurdağı earthquake short-term high-risk seismic time-window is a testament to the effectiveness of the models. We are proud to play a role in reducing the impact of earthquakes and ensuring the safety of communities around the world.

If you're interested in learning more about Earling and how we can help you stay prepared for earthquakes, feel free to contact us. We'd be happy to discuss how our models can provide peace of mind and help you stay safe in the face of seismic activity.
