Abstract

After the 1989 sea-floor eruption off the east coast of Ito city, no remarkable activities of earthquake swarms were observed in the eastern part of the Izu Peninsula, Central Japan during the period from 1990 to 1992. However, a small swarm activity was again observed in January, 1993 and a remarkable one took place again in May-June 1993. Several months after the subsidence of the swarm activity, abrupt changes in the crustal movement in the inland of the peninsula were observed during the period from September 1993 to February 1994. At some continuous observation sites, well correlated changes in the geomagnetic total intensity were observed almost during the same period when the anomalous changes in the crustal movement were seen in the eastern part of the peninsula. The spatial patterns of negative changes of the total intensity in the northern half and positive ones in the south were seen in the north-eastern edge of the domed distribution of the upheaval. The changes in crustal movement and the geomagnetic field terminated when a small swarm activity occurred at the end of February 1994.
