An effect of high-power electromagnetic pulses of magneto-hydrodynamic (MHD) generator on the seismic regime over the Northern Tien Shan and Pamir regions has been studied. An increased level of seismic activity was observed within 3 to 6 days after the MHD generator firing runs. It was suggested that electromagnetic pulses result in discharge of energy accumulated by the Earth crust due to tectonic deformation processes. The energy discharges in the form of series of relatively weak… Expand
Possible relationship between exogenous parameters and seismicity: Ultra-Low Frequency (ULF) of Magnetic Pulsation, Pc
The physical processes of transferring electromagnetic energy from sun to the earth can be referred as Solar - Terrestrial system. It involves terrestrial atmosphere, the outer part of geomagneticExpand
Possible correlation between exogenous parameters and seismicity
Exogenous parameter is basically referred to the external activities that may have been the important factors in modulating the atmosphere, ionosphere and the earth's surface. Due to its significantExpand
