His theory, which seeks to explain the relationship between meteorological events and earthquakes, was rejected by many major organisations for over 20 years. In recent years, however several research groups have started to express interest in this theory. Mr Karel attended the DEMETER conference in 2006 to present his work to a group of 49 scientists who are now interested in the meteoquake theory.

*GEO Group: The Group for Earth Observation GEO's background has arisen from the perceived need to enable amateur reception of the new generation of weather and earth imaging satellites which are already in orbit or planned for launch in the near future. Eumetsat's MSG-1, with its spectacular images of Earth every 15 minutes, is an example of the latest satellite being received by the Group's members. The people leading this Group have experience in amateur radio, electronics, meteorology, oceanography, satellites, computing and publishing: hence they are a very strong and competent team. They are quoted as saying they just wish to share their skills freely with other amateurs.

**DEMETER: The existence of electrical and magnetic disturbances associated with earthquakes has long been observed. Demeter, the first microsatellite of the Myriade series should confirm this hypothesis. Its purpose is to study disturbances in the upper atmosphere related to natural geophysical phenomena, such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions or tsunamis (tidal waves).
