Earthquakes may be sounding an early warning system in the outer reaches of the Earth's atmosphere, says an international team of scientists.
For centuries people have reported seeing electrical flashes, strange lights, fogs and strange animal behavior before quakes strike, Freund said. If electrical fields generated in the ground before earthquakes are behind those phenomena, it's possible the same electrical fields are affecting the ionosphere, he explained.
