The VAN method – named after P. Varotsos, K. Alexopoulos and K. Nomicos,
authors of the 1981 papers describing it – measures low frequency electric
signals, termed "seismic electric signals" (SES). SES are emitted
by rocks under stresses caused by plate-tectonic forces.by which Varotsos
and colleagues have successfully predicted earthquakes in Greece. The respected
Professor will be awarded a prize on Saturday 17th December 2016, 12:00hrs
