[MIS22-01] Stress-induced charges in gabbro at high temperature
Keywords:Ionosphere disturbance, Heki’s TEC anomaly, stress induced charges
Assuming the phenomena were drived by surface electromagnetic field due to stress induced charges distributed thinly around focal or nucleation zone, we have been studying stress-induced charges from silicate rocks. A dried gabbro sample (10×10×3 cm) was heated up to 350℃, then stress-induced current under uniaxial stress of 10 MPa was observed with the variation of temperature.
Experimental results showed that stress-induced charges increased from room temperature to 200℃ but then decreased at higher temperature. We would like to discuss the mechanism of Heki's TEC anomaly based on the experimental results and computer simulation.
