GIS Aids Balkans Earthquake Prediction


“While the latest satellite-assisted experiments into earthquake prediction are promising, research in the field is still very embryonic. NATO’s Science for Peace and Security Programme (SPS) is involved in that research in Southeastern Europe, where it is funding an effort that will, according to Project Director Branislav Glavatovic, “provide an important step towards preparedness and prevention activities in disaster management in the Western Balkans”.”
