13. DATA DESCRIPTION CONTAINED IN DATA FILES.



   Closing the presentation of this earthquake prediction methodology I think it is important to provide the interested reader with all the raw data, acquired, from the monitoring site, in operation, till the time of publishing of this book, so that he is capable of testing all the techniques, presented, herein.

   The following data are provided in data files, in order to facilitate this test:

     1. Map of Greece.

     2. Geographical coordinates of the already installed three (PYR, ATH, HIO) monitoring sites.

     3. Dipole length, its azimuthal direction and used polarity for the dipoles of each monitoring

         site.

     4. Format of registered, preseismic, electrical signals raw data at each monitoring site.

     5. Data files of registrations from PYR, ATH, and HIO monitoring sites.

     6. Format of earthquakes catalog file.

     7. Earthquake catalog file of the seismicity of Greece, which took place from 1901 till the day

         of publication of this book.

     8. Format of data file of magnetic field.

     9. Data files of the magnetic field variations, observed, at the Magnetic Observatory of Penteli

        (MOP), Athens, Greece. This file spans for the period of time, covered, by the registration of

        the Earthís electric field in PYR, ATH and HIO monitoring sites.

   It must be stressed out that all time-references are in GMT time zone mode.
   I believe that, in the future, another scientist will improve this methodology or even better he will find a much more effective scheme for predicting earthquakes, based on deterministic methodologies of the laws of Physics.
   In case you need help Iíll be glad to answer your questions and provide clarifications to any topic, presented, in this book. Please do not hesitate to contact me.
   Moreover, in case you find any error I will appreciate it very much, if you report it to me immediately at my e-mail, so that I can fix it in the next publication.
