In the video with Brendan Meade and Susan Murphy, Brendan Meade discussed how new technologies like GPS are allowing scientists to utilize new ways to predict earthquakes. I thought this was a very intriguing idea, as I never considered the role of GPS in predicting earthquakes before. However, one question that I do have regards the aftermath of Meade’s predictions. For example, Meade mentioned how the Sendai was only one of four regions he identified in his paper, highlighting that the other three regions ceased to have an earthquake like the one in Sendai. My question is this: what can then be done after his predictions are made? Because of the overall inaccuracy of predicting earthquakes, it seems unlikely that a government administration would implicitly trust Meade’s predictions, thus making his predictions not very useful in practice. How can he increase the accuracy of his predictions so that they can be trusted by people and governments worldwide?
