№896 Japan The Coordinating Committee for Earthquake Prediction (CCEP)


The Coordinating Committee for Earthquake Prediction (CCEP) in Japan was founded in April 1969, as part of the Geodesy Council's Second Earthquake Prediction Plan, in order to carry out a comprehensive evaluation of earthquake data in Japan. The committee consists of 30 members and meets four times each year, as well as publishing a report on its activities twice each year.[1] The CCEP brings together representatives from 20 governmental bodies and universities engaged in earthquake prediction and research. It has a secretariat within the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism.

The first moves towards the Committee were taken after earthquake researchers published Earthquake Prediction - Current Status and Action Plan in 1962. This was adopted by the General Assembly of Geodesy Council with the launch of their first prediction plan in 1964. Following earthquakes in 1964, 1695 and 1968 the EEPC was founded to coordinate future prediction activities.

In order to focus future work, and based on the geological evidence, in 1970 the CCEP designated certain areas of Japan as Areas of Specified Observation or Areas of Intensified Observation. The Tōkai regionwas upgraded to an Area of Intensified Observation in 1974.

By 1978, when some of the boundaries were also changed, eight Areas of Specified Observation and two Areas of Intensified Observation had been designated.

You can write whatever you want, but technically, the precise mathematical-statistical forecast of earthquakes based on information about the behavior of wild and domestic animals, birds, fish, and individuals available from 1995, with the advent of social networking.
