Radon and thoron anomalies along Mat fault in Mizoram, India
Hari Prasad Jaishi Sanjay Singh Raghavendra Prasad Tiwari Ramesh Chandra Tiwari
In this study, radon and thoron concentrations in soil gas has been monitored using LR-115(II) solid state nuclear track detectors since 15th July 2011 to February 2012. The study was carried out along Mat fault in Serchip district, Mizoram, India at two different sites – Mat Bridge (23°18′N, 92° 48′E) and Tuichang (23° 13′N, 92° 56′E). The results obtained have been correlated to the seismic events that occurred within 800km from the measuring sites over the mentioned period of time. Anomalous behaviour in radon concentrations have been observed prior to some earthquakes. Interestingly, some thoron anomalies were also recorded.
