  1. Prophecies of Palestine: Geology and Intimate Knowledge of the Subterranean

  2. Veterinary Public Health Activities and Management of the Livestock Sector during Earthquakes and Snowstorms in the Abruzzo Region—Italy, January 2017

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Paolo Migliaccio, Maria Nardoia, Luigi Possenti, Paolo Dalla Villa

    In 2017 the Abruzzo region, located in central Italy, was struck by a sequence of four moderately powerful seismic events (5.0 magnitude on Richter scale), in addition to heavy snowfall that caused a state of emergency affecting the resident population and farm animals. A total of 282 stables...

  3. Understanding Animal Detection of Precursor Earthquake Sounds

    | Contributor(s):: Michael Garstang, Michael C. Kelley

    We use recent research to provide an explanation of how animals might detect earthquakes before they occur. While the intrinsic value of such warnings is immense, we show that the complexity of the process may result in inconsistent responses of animals to the possible precursor signal. Using the...

  4. Unusual animal behavior preceding the 2011 earthquake off the Pacific Coast of Tohoku, Japan: a way to predict the approach of large earthquakes

    | Contributor(s):: Yamauchi, H., Uchiyama, H., Ohtani, N., Ohta, M.

    Unusual animal behaviors (UABs) have been observed before large earthquakes (EQs), however, their mechanisms are unclear. While information on UABs has been gathered after many EQs, few studies have focused on the ratio of emerged UABs or specific behaviors prior to EQs. On 11 March 2011, an EQ...

  5. Characteristics of a canine distemper virus outbreak in Dichato, Chile following the February 2010 earthquake

    | Contributor(s):: Garde, E., Perez, G., Acosta-Jamett, G., Bronsvoort, B. M.

    Following the earthquake and tsunami disaster in Chile in February 2010, residents of Dichato reported high morbidity and mortality in dogs, descriptions of which resembled canine distemper virus (CDV). To assess the situation, free vaccine clinics were offered in April and May. Owner...

  6. Perceptions of pet owners in urban Latin America on protection of their animals during disasters

  7. Study on the precursory behavior of the animal towards to the previous prediction of earthquake

    | Contributor(s):: Yamauchi Hiroyuki

    Many countries, including Japan, have suffered from extensive damage due to earthquakes (EQs). In Japan, there is the possibility that more large EQs, such as the Tonankai and Nankai EQs, may occur in the near future. The Headquarters for Earthquake Research Promotion assumes that these EQs would...

  8. Frog Swarms: Earthquake Precursors or False Alarms?

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Rachel A. Grant, Hilary Conlan

    In short-term earthquake risk forecasting, the avoidance of false alarms is of utmost importance to preclude the possibility of unnecessary panic among populations in seismic hazard areas. Unusual animal behaviour prior to earthquakes has been reported for millennia but has rarely been...

  9. Possible Electromagnetic Effects on Abnormal Animal Behavior Before an Earthquake

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Masashi Hayakawa

    The former statistical properties summarized by Rikitake (1998) on unusual animal behavior before an earthquake (EQ) have first been presented by using two parameters (epicentral distance (D) of an anomaly and its precursor (or lead) time (T)). Three plots are utilized to characterize the unusual...

  10. Care of dogs and attitudes of dog owners in Port-au-Prince, the Republic of Haiti

    | Contributor(s):: Fielding, W. J., Gall, M., Green, D., Eller, W. S.

    This article reports the first known study on dogs in Port-au-Prince. Interviews with 1,290 residents provided information on 1,804 dogs. More than 57.7% of homes kept dogs. Not all the dogs received vaccinations for rabies (41.6%), even though 28.2% of households had had a household member...
