Data from: Predicting the maximum earthquake magnitude from seismic data in Israel and its neighboring countries

Mark Last, Nitzan Rabinowitz & Gideon Leonard
This paper explores several data mining and time series analysis methods for predicting the magnitude of the largest seismic event in the next year based on the previously recorded seismic events in the same region. The methods are evaluated on a catalog of 9,042 earthquake events, which took place between 01/01/1983 and 31/12/2010 in the area of Israel and its neighboring countries. The data was obtained from the Geophysical Institute of Israel. Each earthquake record...
