Abstract

A number of geophysical and seismically significantly related parameters are routinely measured in college laboratories. These are Magnetic field, Gravity field, Radioactivity, sub-surface temperature. After one major earthquake in India (M = 6.5, Latur earthquake of 29 September 1993) some colleges were used to measure these parameters. These parameters show premonitory changes prior to the occurrence of main shock. As the experiment was undertaken during post-seismic period the magnitudes of the seismic events were in the range of 4.5 to 5.0. The advantage of such method is that these are extended over an extensive area.

Monitoring Seismic and Geophysical Paprameters With the Help of College Instruments and Staff

Arlington, Virginia

A number of geophysical and seismically significantly related parameters are routinely measured in college laboratories. These are Magnetic field, Gravity field, Radioactivity, sub-surface temperature. After one major earthquake in India (M = 6.5, Latur earthquake of 29 September 1993) some colleges were used to measure these parameters. These parameters show premonitory changes prior to the occurrence of main shock. As the experiment was undertaken during post-seismic period the magnitudes of the seismic events were in the range of 4.5 to 5.0.
