Abstract

This study presents an analysis of data from various radon anomalies that were compiled by Toutain and Baubron [1999], to investigate their relationships with the earthquake parameters of magnitude and distance from epicenter. The simple methodology applied here reveals significant and positive correlation between the duration of the radon anomalies and the ratio between the earthquake preparation radius and the distance between the sensor and the event epicenter. This shows an important relationship between seismic activity and duration of radon anomalies at a local scale. The consequences and implications of this relationship are discussed.
