The anomaly of SLHF, which is a key component of the Earth's energy balance and represents the heat flux from the Earth's surface to the atmosphere associated with evaporation or transpiration of water on the surface and subsequent condensation of water vapor in the troposphere, has been widely reported as a possible earthquake precursor. The causes are generally attributed to the increase in infrared thermal (IR) temperature and the air ionization produced by increased emanation of radon from… CONTINUE READING
