"We want to make this a killer app, where you put it on your phone and allow us to use your accelerometer, and we will deliver earthquake early warning," Allen said.
Earthquake early warning (EEW) systems detect the start of an earthquake and rapidly transmit warnings to people and automated systems before they experience shaking at their location.
Most importantly, employing an "earthquake early warning system" can help adequately address a catastrophic geological threat faced by South Asia.
While not as accurate as scientific-grade equipment, this approach could be used in countries unable to afford much more expensive earthquake early warning systems, the researchers explained."Crowd-sourced alerting means that the community will benefit by data generated from the community," study lead author Sarah Minson, a geophysicist at the US Geological Survey, said in an agency news release.
The Earthquake Early Warning (EEW) system uses seismic networks to detect activity in known hazard areas so warnings can be sent to areas outside of where the earthquake originated.
