Earthquake Prediction By Using Shade of Sunlight - Developed


By Dr. T. Anandan
Anandan

is

52

years

old

and

by

profession

he

is

practitioner (RIMP) in Thiruppur, Ciombatore District. When he was

medical

studying 7 th

standard he started asking his teacher how season occurs and wonders such seasonal
changes is also happening in other planets too .He studied the pathway of earth journey
in elliptical round the sun as per Keplers Law. He placed 12 stones in elliptical path and
due to some physical problems he started his experiment inside his house by using the
sunlight falls through the opening in the roof. When he monitors the path way of the
earth he wondered on how some days the deviation is conspicuous and based on that
he continued in another 10 years. When he has read on news paper about earthquake
Richter Scale system and he correlated the deviation of earth movements recorded
already. After his confirmation of his theory He first time predicted the earthquake
occurred on 1989 in Armenea, in USSR.

After his schooling he finished composite Mathematics. He worked in printing press and
in car shed. Then he completed RIMP/Medical course in CMC, Vellore. He completed
X ray technician course also. Whenever he finds leisure time he devoted reading books
on the Geology. Over the last 40 years he has developed the new theory on earth quake
prediction. He has made 200-300 predictions over the last 15 years.

Successful Earthquake Prediction


His examples of Earthquake predicted successfully are
1989

- Armenian earth quake predicted by 2 days in advance.

1991

- March Georgia -USSR- 2 days in advance.

1991

- Oct 25 Utharkasi earthquake -2nd incidence predicted


1 day in advance.

1992

- June 28 California earth quake in USA.2 days in


advance.

1993

- Hillari Lathur earthquake - 1 day in advance prediction.

1995

- Kobe Jan 1995 - 2 days in advance.

2001

- 26 Jan Gujarat -1 day in advance

Methodology of Prediction on Seismic Disasters


He has established 6 pre-detecting observatories in India viz., Tirupur, Dharapuram,
Coimbatore, Thrissur (kerala), Tirunelveli Dhonovar, Badnera Engineering College,
Maharashtra with the help of volunteers.

In this centre sunlight is made to fall on the vertical screen which faces exactly eastern
direction. The sunlight passes through an aperture to the size of 6 x 6 cm. The aperture
should be situated 35-40 degree to the horizontal line on the top of the inclined roof
.The horizontal distance from the screen to the vertical point of aperture must be 3 feet
in length (during the day time). The sun light falls on the vertical screen in the morning
from east to west the same from west to east in the evening.

Usually the image

(Sunlight) passes from west to east this happens every day. Periodically this image
moves from north to south in 1 season (Dhaksanayanam) and then from south to north
(Utharanayanam) in the other season. The pathway of earth i.e. by joining every day's
reference point after completion of 1 full year we get the figure of "horizontal 8" (unsized
8). This is due to the total inner lava of earth and based on the induction of compound,
complex 6 type of forces (kept confidant *) which acts interacting in the interior main
component and affect these elasticity of these components .The result of total elasticity
will result forming the figure of 8 outwardly. This is a type of oscillation of earth. This is
repeating every year since from the date of entry of earth in solar planet.

One of the acute corner of the image is taken as reference point of the image on the
vertical screen is noted exactly through a particular point of time (precision of unit of
second) certain hours interval time. This particular time of point should be followed
every day punctually without any minor deviation of second of time late. If we follow this
method every day reference points can be joined by ordinary pencil it will result a
horizontal eight at the end of one year. The time is kept accurately by using a digital
watch.

The observation screen (board) should be erected in exact north - south

direction according to marine compass. If any deviation on the path of daily observation
is noticed then it indicates the ground motion is occurring on which the recorder is sitting
to that particular second which he takes during the observation time.

The reference point will have change in its position either on top or bottom compared to
the regular line / straight line of the reference point. This mean that ground on which one
is sitting is on motion and by taking more observations either within 15 minutes
consequently or half an hour taken a gap the exact length of motion of the ground is
revealed just before your eyes. This indicates on coming natural disaster either quake,
tremor or volcano eruptions separate graph studies including some other calculations
can also be included with this most probable time and distance calculation gives us the
exact location of the plates of the crust which are going to be affected can be finalized.
Angle, intensity, earthquake area also can be informed through this pre study by
establishing more observatories including some new hypothesis when applied
earthquakes and the such natural disasters can be predicted well in advance minimum 2
hours to 48 hours or in some other cases 2 days to 4 days in advance.

This type of observations can be recorded even in a terrace building by erecting dome
shaped equipment. The principle of recording the shade of sunlight is same.

For every day, observations are to be taken 6 times; for accuracy every 15 minutes
readings are to be taken. By this method 200 observatories will be enough globally
instead of 4000 stations at present across the world. The total cost of expenses is also
minimal (less than 100 crore rupees) compared to spending 600 crores of rupees spent
nowadays. In addition space monitoring cost can be very well avoided when this simple
prediction is practiced.

Experts opinion on his methodology:


Indian Institute of Astrophysics, Kodaikanal, Badnera Engineering College, Badnera,
Maharastra State, Kyoto University (Mitigation Department) Japan, Academy of Science,
Earthphysics Department, Mosco, U.S.S.R., I.R.T.T. Engineering College, Civil
Department, Erode District, Tamil Nadu Anna University, Civil Engineering Department,
Chennai, Engineer, Donor Fellowship, Tirunelveli District have all gone through his
experimental methodology and appreciated his innovation.

In spite of all these

appreciation he could not get any financial help from any source for improving his
laboratory or observatory. He has already invested his own savings Rs.25 lakhs over
the last 25 years without expecting any remuneration out of it.

Intellectual Property Rights for the innovator


Even though he wants to demonstrate his experimentation, he is unlikely to reveal his
concept or theory behind his technology.

He feels that if proper legal protection is

provided for his original invention he will be willing to share his theory or concept behind
his technology.
