[MIS03-P04] Observational study of atmospheric electricity parameters(atmospheric electricity field (AEF), atmospheric ion concentration (AIC), and radon concentration) at Asahi, Boso Peninsula, Japan
Keywords:Lithosphere–Atmosphere -Ionosphere coupling, atmospheric ion concentration, atmospheric electricity field, Radon exhalation quantity
Variations of AIC and AEF before precipitations are quite similar at both stations; AIC increases quickly when a precipitation starts and AEF begins to be disturbed three hours before rain starts. But the variations after stopping precipitation have individual properties. Both parameters keep high values for a few hours at ASA and it takes longer than KYS to back to the normal level. Daily variation in each season also differs in each site. In summer, AIC takes minimum value at 15:00 LT. in the daily variation at ASA. But at KYS, it takes maximum value at 15:00 LT. In winter, AEF decreases from 09:00 LT to noon and gradually increases in daily variation. In other seasons, it takes maximum value at 20:00 LT and fluctuated in relatively large range. Daily variation of AEF in winter is mostly similar to the typical daily variation at KYS for all season.
Radon exhalation quantity variation has a clear negative correlation with 3 hours delay to the air pressure variation. Each season differs in daily pattern. AIC and AEF variations show lag correlation with radon exhalation quantity variation. To extract anomalous radon variation related to earthquakes, we should set a network of Radon monitoring and establish a model of radon variation for the future detailed analysis.
