On June 28, 2019, a presentation of the technology of global monitoring and forecasting of seismic weather on the basis of seismic entropy developed by Professor Samvel Akopian took place in Madrid.
The presentation was attended by representatives of various organizations and departments of Spain: Emilio Carreño Herrero, Director of the National Seismic Network, José Manuel Martinez Solares, Head of Seismicity and Seismic Risk at the National, Geographic Institute, Elisa Buford Peyro is a professor of the Faculty of Physics at Complutense University, Belénito Benito Oterino, a professor at the Polytechnic University of Madrid, Manuel Alberto Rojas Caballero, producer and co-author of the documentary series "Catastrophes and Natural Risks", Antonio A. Pazos Garcia Spanish Navy Captain and others, as well as German Lalayan, President of the LGG Foundation for Natural and Environmental Risk Reduction.
At the presentation it was stated that there is already a scientifically substantiated and empirically proven universal technology of global monitoring and forecasting of seismic disasters, which can be practically applied today.
After the presentation, Spanish scientists gave interviews during which all of them emphasized the unusual and innovative nature of the technology and showed great interest in cooperation.
It was proposed to start cooperation with Professor Akopian in several directions, in order to test and understand the author's technology. In particular, a great interest was shown and it was proposed to apply the technology for seismicity monitoring and construction of dynamic seismic hazard maps for the whole territory of the Iberian Peninsula. The Spanish side is ready to provide all the necessary information and discuss the forms of cooperation.
In addition, Professor Akopian was invited to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the first Spanish astronomical seismic observatory in Toledo, where several invited international experts will meet in May next year.
Another important result of the event is the promotion of new technology for global monitoring and prediction of seismicity in order to accelerate its practical implementation. It was noted that the technology was universal in that, at a relatively low cost, it provided an opportunity to monitor almost all seismic regions of the world and to improve the efficiency of other research methods.
The next presentation of the technology is planned for September 2019 in Yerevan, Armenia.
