The subionospheric VLF/LF propagation is extensively used to investigate the lower ionospheric perturbation in possible association with earthquakes. An extensive period of data over seven years from January 2001 to December 2007 and a combination of different propagation paths in and around Japan are used to examine the statistical correlation between the VLF/LF propagation anomaly (average nighttime amplitude, dispersion and nighttime fluctuation) and earthquakes with magnitude greater than 6… Expand

Contaminated effect of Geomagnetic storm on pre-seismic atmospheric and ionospheric anomalies during Imphal earthquake.
Understanding of Seismo-ionospheric coupling mechanism requires a quiet geomagneticcondition to eliminate any kind of contamination in the lower atmospheric and ionospheric parameters. We present theExpand
