Short summary
This paper dedicatedly reviews the progress and development of pre-seismic precursors and anomaly detection methods in this decade. Although several important problems still remain in this domain at present, developments of these two aspects can enrich available information sources, provide advanced tools for multilevel earthquake monitoring, and improve short- and medium-term forecasting, which should play a large and growing role in pre-seismic anomaly research from optical satellite data.
