Earthquake early warning (EEW) systems provide real-time estimates of earthquake source and ground motion parameters to users before strong ground shaking occurs at sites of interest (Kanamori et al. 1997; Kanamori 2005). They make use of the fact that the most destructive ground shaking during an earthquake is caused by S- and surface waves, which travel much slower than P waves and also slower than electromagnetic signals carrying warnings to potential users. Real-time information systems can minimize loss of life and property damage and are therefore an important tool in short-term seismic hazard mitigation and disaster...
