Petrinja earthquake (2020); Quantectum technical report The Petrinja M6.4 earthquake on 29/12/2020 was an unusual event, accompanied by relatively low shear-stress and shear-traction fields. Therefore, no medium-term forecasts for this event were possible based on the analysis of shear-traction f...

Quantectum Ensemble Earthquake Forecasting System (QEEFS)? Classically, numerical earthquake prediction was supposed to be based on a single, deterministic prediction. However, this approach is not used by Quantectum. Since seismic systems are chaotic, Quantectum uses several models to predict or...

Technologies

The main computer system by Quantectum is the so-called T-TECTO Studio X5 Omega Architect, which is a product of 20 years of development.

It is based on Omega-Theory that can be used to explain occurrences of past and current earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. T-TECTO Studio X5 is the world's most advanced software for fault-slip data analysis. In the last 10 years, it was significantly upgraded to allow for earthquakes analyses and also earthquake forecasting.

It is an extensive graphic visualization tool. This system also allows for numerous statistical tests of the results. Quantectum GIS provides the system that forecasts and predicts earthquakes by using the ensemble approach, based on the Omega-Theory.

The system allows for immediate, short-range, medium-range and long-range forecasts and predictions.
