Multi-parametric analysis of earthquake precursors

Hong-Chun Wu, Ivan N. Tikhonov, Ariel R. Césped


[1] Many scientists around the world have reported the occurrence of atmospheric anomalies prior to earthquakes. According to the Lithosphere-Atmosphere-Ionosphere Coupling (LAIC) model, the thermal flux results in temperature rising, humidity and pressure drop, and finally, changes in the velocity line when jet-stream passes through the region over the future epicenter. Using satellite observation, we tried to find out the possible atmospheric disturbances in the surface latent heat flux (SHLF), meteorological features, and jet-stream velocity change before the powerful $M =7.8$ Nepal Earthquake on 25 April 2015 and $M= 6.6$ Taiwan Earthquake on 20 April 2015. To reinforce these observations, a numerical modeling of seismology regime dynamics is also performed.
