Advancing the operational earthquake forecasting
What is Quantectum?
Quantectum is an Operational Center dedicated to the advancement of operational earthquake forecasting. The company was founded in 2019 and uses the most advanced physical and mathematical models for the explanation of faulting processes in the Earth’s crust.
It adopts the same standards for the production and evaluation of forecasts as in meteorology. Based on this the earthquake forecasts are delivered to the partners, commercial customers, and the broader community. Earthquake forecast standards are based on the most advanced mathematical models of earthquake triggering, ensemble approach, statistical testing of all results, and complete automatization of the modeling processes developed up to the operational level.About team

Quantectum develops and produces ensemble-based earthquake forecasts based on the tectonic shear stress field, shear traction field, time-synchronization of earthquake sequences, and atmosphere precursory anomalies. The ensemble models describe the range of possible scenarios and the likelihood of earthquake occurrences.
Quantectum carries out research on all aspects of global earthquake forecasting. The main theoretical approaches are based on the Omega-Theory and the Lithosphere-Atmosphere-Ionosphere-Coupling (LAIC) theory. The forecasts are statistically tested using standards defined by Collaboratory for the Study of Earthquake Predictability (CSEP), and Quantectum’s own extended standards.
Quantectum’s wholesome forecasting system has created an opportunity to analyze all aspects of the tectonic and seismic processes. These datasets can be used for risk assessment and hazard mitigation up to several months ahead. Quantectum produces low-definition, high-definition, and ultra-high-definition forecasts in all seismically active regions worldwide.
Quantectum releases monthly forecasts, weekly analyses and forecasts, earthquake reports on all major earthquakes, and daily timelines with notifications, alerts, warnings, and alarms for all seismically active regions worldwide. Some of the forecasts are available freely, while detailed information packages are only available to customers.
