Abstract

ULF (ultra-low-frequency) electromagnetic emission is recently recognized as one of the most promising candidates for short-term earthquake prediction. This paper reviews previous convincing evidence on the presence of ULF emissions before a few large earthquakes. Then, we present our network of ULF monitoring in the Tokyo area by describing our ULF magnetic sensors and we finally present a few, latest results on seismogenic electromagnetic emissions for recent large earthquakes with the use of sophisticated signal processings.
Keywords: Seismogenic ULF emissions; earthquake prediction; magnetic sensors; signal processing Seismogenic ULF emissions; earthquake prediction; magnetic sensors; signal processing
