Statistical Seismology Examined with Metascience: Trends, Debates & Biases


Metascience provides the tools to study how research is done and where improvements can be made. Statistical Seismology aims to characterise, explain and forecast seismicity patterns, such as foreshocks and aftershocks, in order to ultimately reduce seismic risk. By applying the tools of Metascience to Statistical Seismology, I will describe which subjective processes led to the current state-of-research in this domain and how scientific trends and other debated issues may be biased. Based on the results of ten years of research, I will showcase the power of metascience to identify and minimize the scientific herding behavior in earthquake predictability research. pass code: 840912
