Abstract. A novel method of data processing – a structural functions curvature analysis method – was applied to the time series of seismodeformation monitoring of Baikal rift zone from April to November 2008, revealing the unique features of monitoring variable behaviour that can be considered as a revelation of precursors to the intensive South-Biakal earthquake (M=6.3, at 09:31 on 27 August 2008). The idea of a new approach leans upon basic ideas of modern physics of self-organized criticality and open non-equilibrium systems in general.
