Paper Abstract

Observation of low-frequency radio signals may be used as a tool of remote monitoring of seismic disturbances in the lower ionosphere. In the case of using a low frequency radio signal the most informative parameter is a signal phase. When using natural low-frequency radio emissions - electromagnetic signals of lightning discharges (atmospherics), the variation of the signal amplitude is analyzed. For strong (magnitude greater than 5) and not deep-focus (focal depth is less than 50 km) earthquakes it is found that the effects of earthquakes and their precursors in the signals of atmospherics appeared in the form of increasing amplitude, whose duration is generally a few hours. In this work peculiar properties of the effects of manifestations in the signals of atmospherics of deeper earthquakes are considered on the example of the events in the Malaysian-Indonesian region.
