Earthquake, which is a natural event, occurs periodically in some areas of the world causing greater economical losses, in addition to loss of human lives. Many Governments prepare to attend the relief measures with huge cost, only after the event is occurred. Even with advancement in modern science and technology, few informations are available on the prediction of earthquakes in advance. Even such methods have not been field tested universally. In the absence of the above, heavy losses both to human lives and materials, occur often and often. These areas needs further probing.
Against this, there are many seismological observatories throughout the world to record the intensity of these observatories only help to confirm the occurrence of the events but not to predict the event in advance. If the earthquake is predicted one to two days in advance, it is possible for any Government to take preventive measures against the losses. Though there are several methods are being followed to predict the earthquake (but the success story is different), this is the first time in the history, earthquake is predicted with the help of Sunlight (success rate is more than 75% !). How? Let us move to Methodology..
