Azerbaijan, Baku, Dec 28 /Trend H. Valiyev/
The monitoring earthquake prediction system will be launched in Azerbaijan by the end of the first half of 2012, director of the Institute of Cybernetics of the Azerbaijani National Academy of Sciences Telman Aliyev told Trend on Wednesday.
"The construction of the system in Siyazan region will be completed in the nearest future," Aliyev said.
The construction of the fourth station, which will be located in Naftalan will begin in January 2012. The Institute uses two stations located on Gum Adasi and the city of Shirvan.
"It is the biggest experiment that we will conduct jointly with the Azerbaijani Ministry of Communications and Information Technologies," he said. "The project is implemented under the patronage of Minister Ali Abbasov. The ministry with technical capabilities can provide all possible technical assistance in implementing the project," Aliyev said.
As the matter rests in the complex systems and the largest information exchange of data between stations and servers, then, there is a need for information exchange between all four stations in real time. Resources of the satellite systems will be used for it.
The monitoring system is based on the analysis of noise that can warn of earthquakes from five to 20 hours beforehand.
