Despite great efforts made by geoscientists, precise earthquake prediction still remains illusive. It has become a growing consensus in the recent years that the earthquake process is partially stochastic, and it is more appropriate to take a probabilistic approach to forecasting earthquakes. Because the interseismic, preseismic, and postseismic processes are considered to be mechanically different, different stochastic models may have to be adopted for earthquake forecast models during these different time periods in an earthquake cycle. In this study we attempt to develop a probabilistic earthquake forecast model of intermediate to long times during the interseismic time period, constrained by...
