  • Krakatau caldera deposits: revisited and verification by geophysical means
    • Authors: Izumi Yokoyama
      Abstract:  One of the differences between volcanic craters and calderas is that the latter bottoms are flatways filled with caldera deposit with lower density in comparison to country rocks. The 1883 Krakatau eruption affords us important knowledge on caldera formation even if it was not observed with modern sophisticated instruments. First, volcanic activities of the Krakatau Islands before and after the 1883 eruption are reexamined: previous suppositions involving a caldera-forming eruption of the proto-Krakatau prior to 1883 proved to be unsupported by the bathymetric topographies and gravity anomalies on and around the Krakatau Islands. Then, Anak Krakatau is interpreted as a parasitic cone of the main Krakatau volcano. As supplementary knowledge to discussion of caldera deposits, the results of drillings at several calderas in Japan and Mexico are introduced. Mass deficiency of the caldera deposit at Krakatau caldera is estimated by the gravity anomaly observed there and converted to probable volume with suitable density. For quantitative examination of the subsurface structure beneath the Krakatau complex, spatial distributions of seismic S-wave attenuation and Vp/Vs ratios have been already studied by temporary seismological observations and their results have been published. The high ratios of Vp/Vs observed approximately at Krakatau caldera may be attributable to the caldera deposit that is low density and contain much water. As additional remarks, a zone having both the characters, S-wave attenuation and zones of relatively high Vp/Vs ratio, may be a probable magma reservoir centering at a depth of about 10 km.

  • Analysis of soil radon data in earthquake precursory studies
    • Authors: Hari Prasad Jaishi, Sanjay Singh, Raghavendra Prasad Tiwari, Ramesh Chandra Tiwari
      Abstract: Soil radon data were recorded at two selected sites along Mat fault in Mizoram (India), which lies in the highest seismic zone in India. The study was carried out during July 2011 to May 2013 using LR-115 Type II films. Precursory changes in radon concentration were observed prior to some earthquakes that occurred around the measuring sites. Positive correlation was found between the measured radon data and the seismic activity in the region. Statistical analysis of the radon data together with the meteorological parameters was done using Multiple Regression Method. Results obtained show that the method employed was useful for removing the effect of meteorological parameters and to identify radon maxima possibly caused by seismic activity.

  • Analysis of the spatial distribution between successive earthquakes in
           aftershocks series
    • Authors: Elisaveta Georgieva Marekova
      Abstract: The earthquake spatial distribution is being studied, using catalogs for different recent aftershock series. The quality of the available data, taking into account the completeness of the magnitude, is examined. Based on the analysis of the catalogs, it was determined that the probability densities of the inter-event distance distribution collapse into a single curve when the data were rescaled. The collapse of the data provides a clear illustration of aftershock-occurrence self-similarity in space.

  • Rake rotation introduces ambiguity in the formulation of slip-dependent
           constitutive models: slip modulus or slip path?
    • Authors: Andrea Bizzarri
      Abstract: The linear slip–weakening (SW) law, predicting that the traction decreases for increasing fault slip, is one of the most widely adopted governing models to describe the traction evolution and the stress release processes occurring during coseismic slip failures. We will show that, contrary to other constitutive models, the SW law inherently poses the problem of considering the Euclidean norm of the slip vector or its cumulative value along its path. In other words, it has the intrinsic problem of its analytical formulation, which does not have a solution a priori. By considering a fully dynamic, spontaneous, 3–D rupture problem, with rake rotation allowed, in this paper we explore whether these two formulations can lead to different results. We prove that, for homogeneous configurations, the two formulations give the same results, with a normalized difference less than 1%, which is comparable to the numerical error due to grid dispersion. In particular, we show that the total slip, the resulting seismic moment, the fracture energy density, the slip–weakening curve and the energy flux at the rupture front are practically identical in the two formulations. These findings contribute to reconcile the results presented in previous papers, where the two formulations have been differently employed. However, this coincidence is not the rule. Indeed, by considering models with a highly heterogeneous initial shear stress distribution, where the rake variation is significant, we have also demonstrated that the overall rupture history is quite different by assuming the two formulations, as well as the fault striations, the traction evolution and the scalar seismic moment. In this case the choice of the analytical formulation of the governing law does really matter.

  • Archaeological, archaeomagnetic and thermoluminescence investigation of a
           baked clay kiln excavated at Chieri, northern Italy: contribution to the
           rescue of our cultural heritage
    • Authors: Evdokia Tema, Fulvio Fantino, Enzo Ferrara, Silvia Allegretti, Alessandro Lo Giudice, Alessandro Re, Federico Barello, Silvia Vella, Luigi Cirillo, Monica Gulmini
      Abstract: Combining different dating techniques is fundamental to constrain the ages of archaeological findings, mainly when direct evidences for their chronological context are not available. This paper presents the results of a combined archaeological, archaeomagnetic and thermoluminescence study of a kiln discovered during a rescue excavation at Chieri, northern Italy. The archaeological site is quite complex mainly due to the interposition of different stratigraphic levels that span from Roman times to present day. The studied kiln belongs to the post-medieval stratigraphic level but the lack of datable diagnostic objects strongly limits the possibility of its accurate dating only by means of archaeological evidences. Archaeomagnetic study was performed on 26 baked clay samples, isolating stable characteristic remanent magnetizations. The statistic comparison of the averaged direction with reference secular variation curves suggests two possible dating intervals. Independent dating from thermoluminescence study of 2 samples is consistent with the second time interval proposed by archaeomagnetism, suggesting that the kiln was abandoned at the beginning of the 17th century. The successful combination of the two independent laboratory techniques provides accurate dating of archaeological baked clays and can be used as routine for future archaeological investigations of rescue excavations.

  • Latitudinal characteristics of GPS derived ionospheric TEC: a comparative
           study with IRI 2012 model
    • Authors: Monti Chakraborty, Sanjay Kumar, Barin Kumar De, Anirban Guha
      Abstract: The present study investigates the variation of Total Electron Content (TEC) using Global Positioning System (GPS) satellites from four equatorial to mid-latitudes stations over a period of one year. The stations are Port Blair (11.63°N, 92.70°E), Agartala (23.75°N, 91.25°E), Lhasa (29.65°N, 91.10°E) and Urumqi (43.46°N, 87.16°E). The diurnal, monthly and seasonal variations of TEC have been explored to study its latitudinal characteristics. Analysis of TEC data from these stations reveals the characteristics of latitudinal variation of Equatorial Ionospheric Anomaly (EIA). To validate the latest IRI 2012 model, the monthly and seasonal variations of GPS-TEC at all the four stations have been compared with the model for three different topside options of electron density, namely, NeQuick, IRI-01-corr and IRI-2001. TEC predictions from IRI-2001 top side electron density option using IRI 2012 model overestimates the observed TEC especially at the low latitudes. TEC from IRI- NeQuick and IRI-01-corr options shows a tendency to underestimate the observed TEC during the day time particularly in low latitude region in the high solar activity period. The agreement between the model and observed values are reasonable in mid latitude regions. However, a discrepancy between IRI 2012 derived TEC with the ground based observations at low latitude regions is found. The discrepancy appears to be higher in low-latitude regions in comparison to mid latitude regions. It is concluded that largest discrepancy in TEC occur as a result of poor estimation of the hmF2 and foF2 from the coefficients.

  • A numerical study of the windstorm Klaus: sensitivity to sea surface
    • Authors: Nazario Tartaglione, Rodrigo Caballero
      Abstract: This article investigates the role of sea surface temperature (SST) as well as the effects of evaporation and moisture convergence on the evolution of cyclone Klaus, which occurred on January 23 and 24, 2009. To elucidate the role of sea surface temperature (SST) and air–sea fluxes in the dynamics of the cyclone, ten hydrostatic mesoscale simulations were performed by Bologna Limited Area Model (BOLAM). The first one was a control experiment with European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) SST analysis. The nine following simulations are sensitivity experiments where the SST are obtained by adding a constant value by 1 to 9 K to the ECMWF field. Results show that a warmer sea increases the surface latent heat fluxes and the moisture convergence, favoring the development of convection in the storm. Convection is affected immediately by the increased SST. Later on, drop of mean sea level pressure (MSLP) occurs together with increasing of surface winds. The cyclone trajectory is not sensitive to change in SST differently from MSLP and convective precipitation.

  • Acoustic ray tracing in the atmosphere: with gravitational effect and
           attenuation considered
    • Authors: Yang Song, Yuannong Zhang, Chen Zhou, Zhengyu Zhao
      Abstract: An acoustic ray tracing model is developed to take into account the impacts of gravitational field and realistic atmospheric attenuation. Ray tracing equations are deduced from the real part of the dissipative dispersion relation, while the acoustic attenuation coefficient and growth rate in a stratified moving atmosphere are deduced from the imaginary part of the dispersion relation. To account for the non-isothermal effect and realistic attenuation, the buoyancy frequency and the cut-off frequency are substituted by the values in the slowly varying atmosphere, and the attenuation coefficient is corrected by the realistic absorption. In the validation by numerical experiment, the ray trajectory obtained by this ray tracing model agrees well with the result calculated by the FDTD method. It is shown that the acoustic trajectory can be accurately predicted by this ray tracing model. The numerical results for 5 Hz acoustic waves show that in the stratospheric ducting the gravitational effect plays a leading role while the attenuation effect could be neglected. But for the thermospheric ducting, the contribution of the absorption becomes more important.

  • Detection of gravity changes before powerful earthquakes in GRACE
           satellite observations
    • Authors: Mohsen Shahrisvand, Mehdi Akhoondzadeh, Mohammad Ali Sharifi
      Abstract: The variations of gravity field have been analyzed in this article, in order to find disturbances in the vicinity of recent great earthquakes epicenters including Chile (February 27, 2010), Tohoku-Oki (March 11, 2011) and Indian Ocean (April 11, 2012) prior to the events. For this purpose, the 10 years long time series of gravitational gradient components obtained from weekly Gravity Recovery And Climate Experiment (GRACE) solutions have been used. Some of gravitational gradient components are independent to GRACE stripy error and amplify high frequency components of gravity field. Therefore that preseismic activity can be better illustrated. The interquartile method has been used to construct the higher and lower bounds in time series to detect outlying solution outside the bounds associated with impending earthquakes. Afterwards, Nonlinear Auto-Regressive models with eXogenous inputs (NARX) neural network has been proposed in the detection process of prominent gravity field anomalies prior the earthquakes. Both methods detect considerable anomalous occurrences during 2-5 weeks prior to the earthquakes. Our results statistics show that the anomalous deviations before the earthquakes have different signs and amplitudes at different cases.

  • A new method for the validation of the GOMOS high resolution temperature
           profiles products
    • Authors: Rosario Quirino Iannone, Stefano Casadio, Bojan Bojkov
      Abstract: This article proposes a new validation method for GOMOS HRTP atmospheric temperature and density profiles, with the aim of detecting and removing 0.2 to 5 km scale vertical structures in order to minimise the impact of atmospheric artefacts in the comparison exercises. The proposed approach is based on the use of the “Morlet” Continuous Wavelet Transformation (CWT), for the characterisation and removal of non-stationary and localised vertical structures, in order to produce wave-free profiles of atmospheric temperature and density. Comparison of wave-free temperature/density profiles and wavy structures profiles with those estimated from a limited number of collocated SHADOZ soundings for the years of 2003, 2004 and 2008, is discussed in detail. First results suggest that the proposed approach could lead to a significantly improved HRTP validation scheme, in terms of reduced uncertainties in the estimated biases. Furthermore, this method may be adopted for the study of the vertical component of gravity waves from high spatial/temporal resolution data.
