On Seismoelectromagnetic Phenomena

  • N. I. Gershenzon

During last dozens of years a lot of original papers and reviews on the electromagnetic phenomena associated with earthquake preparation processes and with earthquakes themselves have appeared. These phenomena can be divided in the following way:
  • atmospheric luminosity in epicentral areas before, during, and after earthquakes,

  • appearance of electrotelluric field anomalies,

  • local changes of geomagnetic field,

  • generation (or abnormal change) of the radio frequency electromagnetic emission,

  • changes of upper and lower ionosphere parameters,

  • generation of low frequency oscillations in the Earth magnitosphere.
