Geomagnetic anomalies in the area of Popocatepetl volcano, Mexico
"Geomagnetic anomalies of different nature observed in the area of Popocatepetl volcano are presented and analyzed in the current paper. The analysis reveals some anomalies considered to be of local volcanic origin: the EM background in the vicinity of the volcano was found to be significantly noisier than other reference stations; sporadic strong noise-like geomagnetic activity was observed in the H component; some geomagnetic pulsations were observed only at Tlamacas station (located 4 km near the volcano). Some noticeable changes in the evolution of the fractal index calculated for geomagnetic field may be connected to the presence of critical processes in the volcano dynamics."
