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...

Data assimilation module Introduction To make forecasts we need to know the past and the current state of the system, and needs to understand the processes that govern the system changes. The Quantectum earthquake forecasts use a data assimilation module to estimate the initial conditions of the...

Elastic rebound theory and the Omega-sequences Introduction In the classical seismology, the elastic-rebound theory is an explanation of how energy is accumulated and then released from the rock during an earthquake. The model was formulated by Reid in 1910. Due to the slow and constant movement...
