ArkNow INTERNATIONAL OBSERVATORY FOR VIDEO MONITORING OF THE SKY (IVMOS)
Video monitoring station in Baku, Azerbaijan
Detectors for video monitoring of the sky are part of earthquake forecasting stations of the Global Network for the Forecasting of Earthquakes GNFE (UK, London). The detector for recording of acoustic-gravitational waves is a special parabolic antenna directed vertically into the sky, designed and made at the Scientific Research Institute for Prognosis and Studying of Earthquakes (Baku, Azerbaijan). This antenna receives acoustic-gravitational waves and ordinary sounds as well. Sounds together with the video image of the sky shot with a video camera (or a web camera) are transmitted to the sky-monitoring observatory.
The photo on the left shows the detector of acoustic-gravitational waves, which is part of the ATROPATENA-AZ earthquake forecasting station (photo on the right, Baku, Azerbaijan). Acoustic-gravitational waves are also used in earthquake prediction as they may occur before strong earthquakes.
