Abstract Kavitha and Raghukanth (Acta Geod Geophys 1–33, 2015) proposed an algorithm to forecast the earthquake energy release for the global seismogenic zones. They concluded that “the developed model is efficient in forecasting the annual earthquake energy release of most of the seismogenic zone”. However, for several representative case studies their predictions not only are significantly smaller than the observations but also have unreasonable uncertainty. This commentary discusses some of the problems associated with the earthquake data selection for the input of modeling, which may improve the accuracy of the earthquake energy prediction.
