Dear all,
I am a new subscriber to the PSN list and am finding
myself awed by the volume of information going to and
fro. More so, as I am an amateur. But still, I would
like to stay on and learn a bit. May be you all may
help me understand somethings that are intriguing me
regarding earthquakes.
First, I am from India and live near Gujarat state,
which was rocked on January 26 by a devastating quake.
What I want to know is about the relation between
anomolous behaviour of ground water with seismic
activity. I read in a book that there is a research
going to predict earthquakes by studying the behaviour
of ground water table (shifting places, etc) before
the tremors. I understand that there is a strong link,
and changes in ground water level can be traced 3-4
months before the main shock. Can somebody fill me up
on this.
Sorry, if I sound like an idiot. In that case please
correct me.
