The VAN Group ( Panayiotis Varotsos, Kessar Alexopoulos and Konstantine Nomicos) VAN Method to predict Earthquakes (a Method that concerning its effectivity divides the experts in Pro and Contra, but the only method for short term prediction and not only based on statistics) The Group claimed 1996 it predicted 10 of 14 Earthquakes with 3 Earthquakes in inactive regions. The Contra experts say that the transformation of signals in predictions is unclear like the explanation of the production of these signals and R.J.Geller says that not even one Earthquake has been predicted.

The lists are not sorted. I prefer a chronological order (birthday) but information is not available for all the persons. The list is only a result of my own research and some few suggestions by others. It is therefore not surprising if some important names are missing. Inform me about the person, his work, birthdate and birthplace and possible links and maybe images that could be used. (mlahanas@gmx.net).
