Earthquake early warning eew

Earthquake Early Warning (EEW)

  • Use data from near an earthquake rupture to warn population centers at a distance that shaking is imminent

    • Information can be transmitted at the speed of light but strongest shaking is carried by waves traveling ~3.5 km/s

    • Warnings can be used not only to alert people but to prepare infrastructure

      • Slow BART trains

      • Open fire station doors

      • Bring elevators to nearest floor


Earthquake studies

Earthquake studies

  • In real-time, determine basic information (location, magnitude)

  • Later, determine spatial distribution of slip

    • Involves 100s or 1,000s of free parameters in a highly under-determined and non-linear inverse problem

      • Really we want to do the full slip model in real-time

        • In real-time, missing basic information such as which fault is rupturing


Solution

Solution

  • Solve for slip AND fault geometry using semi-analytical solution

Introduction

Introduction

  • Real-time high-rate scientific-quality GPS data is proving to be very valuable for EEW and rapid response

    • Very limited global distribution

  • Low quality GPS receivers are globally ubiquitous

    • Smartphones

    • GPS navigation in cars

  • Can supplement with low-cost community instruments (LCCIs)

    • Quake Catcher Network


Challenges

Challenges

  • Huge errors associated with pseudorange-based GPS locations

  • Even huger errors associated with attaching GPS to humans

  • Communications issues

  • Data volume could be enormous


Caveat

Caveat

  • This is an altruistic EEW system

    • Normally we use instruments near the source to warn humans at a distance

    • Here we use instruments attached to humans near the source to warn humans at a distance


To do

To-Do

  • Fit displacement amplitudes

  • Earthquake location and Mw

  • Data resampling

  • Focal mechanism

  • Slip modeling

  • Detection?

  • Quality control?

  • e.g., Scripps group

  • Reuse real-time finite fault inversion
