The Research on Earthquake Radon Anomalies


Radon is considered to be one of the most promising gases to predicting the earthquake. The water radon concentration is regular to monitoring indicator. The research on the formation of the earthquake radon anomalies (ERA) will produce great academic value and economic benefits. The ERA in slope-type can be seemed as a response of underground water radon anomalies in the progress of tensile stress accumulating.
