For the first time in front of a large earthquake detected foreshocks

A group of French and Turkish scientists led by Michel Bouchon of the University of Grenoble first got solid evidence to suggest that an earthquake can be predicted for a few minutes or hours before the crash.

If we believe the theoretical calculations, the crust becomes unstable in the hours prior to a major earthquake, but the discovery of this instability in the real world has been extremely difficult.

The researchers involved in the analysis of data obtained just before the devastating earthquake in Izmit, Turkey in 1999. On one of the seismograms experts noticed five small shocks in
