This report describes recent efforts at earthquake prediction, focusing on the modern era beginning in the mid- to late 1970's. Topics include a history of prediction efforts, the measurement of physical parameters in areas where earthquakes occur, and the development of a model upon which predictions could be based. The efforts centered around Parkfield, California, whose well-known seismic history allowed the development of a 'characteristic Parkfield earthquake' model and led to a formal prediction that a moderate-size earthquake would occur at Parkfield between 1985 and 1993. However, the anticipated earthquake did not occur until September 2004.
