Poster #33: Audrey Rubart – Numerical Simulation of Electromagnetic Ionosphere Disturbances Detecting Earthquake Activity

Faculty mentor: Jamesina Simpson

This research project used Finite Difference Time Domain method to show electromagnetic fields propagating away from a power line and show how those fields changed when the line is moved by an earthquake. The research also intends to simulate how electromagnetic fields interact with the ionosphere and how those interactions also change if the EM field is disturbed by a natural disaster like an earthquake. If the changes can be measured, this would be another way to passively measure earthquakes.
