BeschreibungEarthquakes and Animals brings objective science to bear on these old legends. But this is not the suspect science associated with recent attempts to validate UFO sightings. The book places in front of the reader the simple laboratory evidence for the behaviour of animals, plants and objects when they are subjected to intense electromagnetic pulses. In many cases they behave in ways that have been recorded for centuries -- and are still reported today -- as earthquake-related. Written for both the general public and scientists, Earthquakes and Animals demonstrates without mathematics and by means of many simulation experiments a physical basis for the old earthquake legends. It also adds tantalisingly to the science of earthquake prediction and cautiously suggests a legitimate new field of study -- electromagnetic seismology.
