Earthquake prediction & mitigation collection

At Elsevier our goal is empowering the scientific community to answer the big questions.
One question that the Earth Science community is striving to answer is

Will we ever be able to predict earthquakes, or can we only hope to mitigate their effects?

Below is a collection of papers showcasing the advancement in research being made towards answering this question
