An Earth Coordinate System for Earthquake Forecasting Using SLHGN


An attempt for an earthquake forecasting has been challenged by the current earth coordinate system. The latest architecture of mHGN which is called SLHGN requires that the observed locations must be spread out regularly, that is within regular grid-like distances. Such a requirement would not be fulfilled, as within the current earth coordinate system a longitude-difference would produce different distances. The extreme examples are locations in equator compared to those on the earth poles. Therefore, an earth coordinate system has been developed to support the ongoing earthquake forecasting technology using SLHGN. Additionally, two important positive issues related to this earth coordinate system have been developed, they are: 1) each location is not represented through two-value (longitude and latitude), but only a single value. This value does not represent a point but an area; 2) the conversion of this earth coordinate system to the x-y Cartesian System requires no angular formulas, which is therefore fast. These issues have given positive support to the SLHGN in forecasting earthquakes. Although the accuracy and the performance are not yet ready to be analyzed properly, because local weather data at the time of an earthquake occurrence is not always available, the characteristics of the SLHGN experiments show very promising results
