The article focuses on an empirical scheme for predicting short-term Earthquake. Topics discussed include the framework of an initiative project where an empirical scheme of short-term earthquake prediction is elaborated and empirical facts obtained after analyzing the results of retrospective. It mentions the necessity of creating an empirical scheme for earthquake prediction.
