The fiber-optic network will help to predict earthquakes.
This was stated by the research staff at Stanford University.
Scientists announced the possibility to predict the occurrence of aftershocks, using a special fiber optic network, because of the standard sensors handle not. Such cables can send information at the speed of light, so used structures for the telecommunications and oil companies.
For the monitoring of seismic activity of the applied network of seismographs. This allows you to identify the epicenter of the earthquake, to map the active seismic regions and in some moments to obtain information about the earthquake much earlier.
The main problem of such elements is of great price, in connection with which it is difficult to build a dense network with little distance between the detectors.
