first rewind previous Strona / 1 next fast forward last
A 12-year period experimental data, from 1 January 1995, to 20 August 2007, have been examined for possible correlations between Seismic Electric Signals (SES) of the VAN method and source parameters of the corresponding earthquakes in Western Greece. During that period 13 earthquakes of magnitude M W //5 with epicenters in the area 19–24°E, 36–41°N and available the CMT solutions (Centroid Moment Tensor focal mechanism solutions) have been found to be preceded by a SES each time at one of the three VAN stations of IOA, PIR or PAT. The results of IOA and PIR stations are compared to those reported by Uyeda et al. 1999, for the previous period 1983–1994. The IOA station seems to be sensitive to earthquakes with thrust type mechanisms being mainly consistent to its past behavior. The PIR station, which is moved from its previous position by few kilometers, exhibits some changes. It detects now both strike slip and thrust type earthquakes and becomes sensitive to new areas indicating probably the strong dependence of the SES station detection ability upon its location.
In the previous paper the electric field Einside, inside a conductive path (and along its axis), having a conductivity s appreciably larger than that of the host medium, s', was studied in the static approximation, for the case of a current dipole source parallel to the path. Here, the same problem is studied but for a source perpendicular to the path. The following two types of paths we considered: (i) a cylindrical channel of radius R and infinite length, and (ii) a layer of width w and infinite extent. If D denotes the distance of the source from the path, and d the distance of the measuring site from the source, we find that the electric field Einside at remote sites (e.g., d/R or d/w of the order of 10(2)) varies as 1/D for the case of a source neighboring to the conductive cylinder, while it is almost independent of D (and w) for the case of a layer. In the case of the cylinder, the values of the ratio Einside/Ehost at (d/R)crit (see the previous paper); significantly exceed (e.g., by one order of magnitude for usual conductivity ratios between 200/1 and 4000/1, but for appreciably small values of D/R, e.g., D/R=2) the corresponding values when the dipole is parallel to the path. The general case, when the dipole source forms a certain angle with its neighboring highly conductive path terminating inside the host medium, is also investigated. The following four points emerge as far as the electric field Eoutside measured inside the more resistive medium but close to an edge is concerned. First, its direction is regulated from the angle between the emitting dipole and the direction of the (elongated) conductive path (as well as from the distance of the source). Second, its amplitude is usually larger than that of Ehost by a factor of around s/s', but there arc also some cases of over-amplification, i.e., the value of Eoutside/Ehost significantly exceeds the conductivity ratio s/s': such an over-amplification may even occur in cases of conductive paths that are not connected. Third, its amplitude versus the distance from the edge varies only slowly, i.e., [Eoutside] 1/r(t) where t is around (but smaller than) unity. Fourth, for a circularly polarized EM plane wave incident on the surf ace of a conductive half-space (containing a highly conductive path close to the interface), the direction of the electric field variations, measured on the surface but close to the end of the path, is generally different from the direction of Eoutside arising from a dipole source which forms a certain angle with its neighboring conductive path. Finally, the above points are applied to the case of the low frequency electric signals that are detected before earthquakes; this results in a natural explanation of the procedure that is followed to determine the parameters of an impending earthquake from the components of the precursory electric signal.
The frequency dependence of the electric field produced by an electric current dipole lying inside or very close to a highly conductive cylinder (s), of infinite length and radius R, embedded in a significantly less conductive medium (s') is investigated. The study is extended to the case when the dipole is located inside or very close to a highly conductive layer (s), of infinite extent and width w, embedded in a significantly less conductive medium (s'). At large distances d from the source and for appreciably low frequencies, i.e., f<fc or f >f0, the electric field is attenuated with a skin depth significantly smaller than deltaout having as a lower limit the skin depth deltain for a full volume of conductivity s. The properties of the recordings, at remote distances, from a current dipole source emitting an exponentially decaying signal of unit initial amplitude and a relaxation time constant t is also studied. The source is located either inside a full volume of conductivity s' or inside a conductive half-space at a depth h (<< d). In the case of homogeneous medium s', a certain relaxation time t0 = žs'd(2)/4 exists due to the diffusion dynamics, leading to the following conclusions. If t << t0 the recordings have an enlarged duration of around t0 and an amplitude orders of magnitude smaller than that corresponding to the static case. If t > t0 the recordings have a duration almost equal to that of the emitted signal, and arrive after a time of around t0, and their amplitude approaches that of the static case. In the case of the current source located within a conductive half-space, the signal recorded at remote observation sites on the interface, arrives in two parts. The first part (which "diffuses" from the source to the interface and then propagates as a surface wave) has a duration significantly smaller than the second part ("solely diffusing" through the conductive medium). The study is extended to the case of a series of signals emitted at equal time-intervals. The application of the above to the earth explain the absence of co-fracture signals but do indicate, that the precursory Seismic Electric Signals reach detectable values at certain sites on the earth's surface.
