Abstract. In this paper we study the energy of ULF electromagnetic waves that were recorded by the satellite DEMETER, during its passing over Haiti before and after a destructive earthquake. This earthquake occurred on 12 January 2010, at geographic Latitude 18.46° and Longitude 287.47°, with Magnitude 7.0 R. Specifically, we are focusing on the variations of energy of Ez-electric field component concerning a time period of 100 days before and 50 days after the strong earthquake. In order to…

Phenomena of electrostatic perturbations before strong earthquakes (2005–2010) observed on DEMETER
Abstract. During the DEMETER operating period in 2004–2010, many strong earthquakes took place in the world. 69 strong earthquakes with a magnitude above 7.0 during January 2005 to February 2010 were
Enhanced ULF electromagnetic activity detected by DEMETER above seismogenic regions
In this paper we present results of a comparison between ultra low frequency (ULF) electromagnetic (EM) radiation, recorded by an electric field instrument (ICE) onboard the satellite DEMETER in the
On the Origin of ULF Magnetic Waves Before the Taiwan Chi-Chi 1999 Earthquake
The ultra low frequency (ULF) electromagnetic (EM) wave activity usually recorded on Earth’s ground has been found to depend on various types of space weather. In addition ULF waves observed before
Pre-processing of the ULF Waveform Fluctuations Abov e Seismic Active Regions Observed by DEMETER
The re search focused on electromagnetic phenomena related with earthquakes is a very rapidly expanding field. The main purpose is to find a possible short time earthquake prediction. In the past,
Changes in the ultra-low frequency wave field during the precursor phase to the Sichuan earthquake: DEMETER observations
Abstract. Electromagnetic phenomena observed in association with increases in seismic activity have been studied for several decades. These phenomena are generated during the precursory phases of an

In this paper we present results of a comparison between ultra low frequency (ULF) electromagnetic (EM) radiation, recorded by an electric field instrument onboard the satellite detection of
Interest in research on the detection of earthquake (EQ) precursors is growing year by year. In this direction, the paper analysed the results of earlier studies, as well as positive results of some
Temporal and spatial analyses on seismo-electric anomalies associated with the 27 February 2010 M = 8.8 Chile earthquake observed by DEMETER satellite
Abstract. This paper studies seismo-electromagnetic anomalies observed by the French satellite DEMETER (Detection of Electro-Magnetic Emissions Transmitted from Earthquake Regions) during the 27
Comparative study on earthquake and ground based transmitter induced radiation belt electron precipitation at middle latitudes
Abstract. We examined (peak-to-background flux ratio p/b > 20) energetic electron bursts in the presence of VLF activity, as observed from the DEMETER satellite at low altitudes (~700 km). Our
Results of previous studies have pointed to a statistically significant relationship between the ionospheric, ie. atmospheric disturbances and earthquakes. Also, numerous previous studies concerning


Ionospheric electromagnetic perturbations observed on DEMETER satellite before Chile M7.9 earthquake
Based on the ionospheric electromagnetic data observed on DEMETER satellite of France, the ionospheric electromagnetic signals were analyzed within 10 days before Chile M7.9 earthquake on November
Electromagnetic ELF radiation from earthquake regions as observed by low‐altitude satellites
Seismo-Electromagnetic (SEM) waves observed by low-altitude satellites passing over seismic regions were studied. The data of the COSMOS-1809 satellite were analysed over the earthquake region in
