Paper Abstract

In this paper, author will firstly discuss the possibility of detecting earthquake precursory by means of NOAA data application on the basis of analysis of the conventional earthquake predicting, and further analysis the problems of earth surface temperature and factors related to earthquake on the earth-surface form energy transmission equation and put forward the modify split windows algorithm to inverse the earth surface temperature in earthquake region. Finally author used the NOAA/AVHRR satellite data to inverse the ground surface temperatures (night) before and after Chinese Zhangbei earthquake (Ms6.2). The result indicated that the ground temperatures before 20 days earthquake was a drop trend. Only 3 days before earthquake, the ground temperature in epicenter just began to go up. Entire temperature changing submitted to a drop tendency.
