Seismology is a multidisciplinary science using knowledge from other disciplines, like geology, tectonics, physic and mathematic. The biggest challenge for seismologists is to elaborate earthquakes forecasting algorithm. Forecasting earthquakes means estimate time, location and strength of earthquakes with enough accuracy. Earthquakes forecasting can be, at least partially, compared to the weather forecasting. Unfortunately we are still not ready to say that this aim is reached. Nevertheless, using more and more sophisticated seismological studies, we believe that such algorithm will be available in the future.
