The ability to predict earthquakes is one of the greatest challenges for Earth Sciences. Radon has been suggested as one possible
precursor, and its groundwater anomalies associated with earthquakes and water–rock interactions were proposed in several
seismogenic areas worldwide as due to possible transport of radon through microfractures, or due to crustal gas fluxes along
active faults. However, the use of radon as a possible earthquake’s precursor is not clearly linked to crustal deformation.
It is shown in this paper that uranium groundwater anomalies, which were observed in cataclastic rocks crossing the underground
Gran Sasso National Laboratory, can be used as a possible strain meter in domains where continental lithosphere is subducted.
Measurements evidence clear, sharp anomalies from July, 2008 to the end of March, 2009, related to a preparation phase of
the seismic swarm, which occurred near L’Aquila, Italy, from October, 2008 to April, 2009. On April 6th, 2009 an earthquake
(Mw = 6.3) occurred at 01:33 UT in the same area, with normal faulting on a NW–SE oriented structure about 15 km long, dipping
toward SW. In the framework of the geophysical and geochemical models of the area, these measurements indicate that uranium
may be used as a possible strain meter in extensional tectonic settings similar to those where the L’Aquila earthquake occurred.
Due to the subcrustal earthquakes located at the sharp bend of the Southeast Carpathians, Vrancea zone in Romania has a high
potential seismic hazard in Europe. Among several seismic precursors, radon anomalies in air, ground, and groundwater in the
epicentral areas can be associated with the strain stress changes that occurred before and after earthquakes. In order to
support this theoretical view, the main aim of this paper was to investigate temporal variations of radon concentration levels
in air near the ground and in ground air by the use of solid state nuclear track detectors CR-39 and LR-115 in relation with
some seismic events at two seismic stations Vrancioaia and Plostina, located in Vrancea active region. This paper reports
essentially the observation of radon concentration levels in the air near the ground at 1 m height for the earthquakes that
occurred during the period of November 2010–October 2011 and moment magnitudes Mw in the range of
. The average radon concentration in air above the ground measured with CR-39 detectors recorded for 1 year period in Vrancea
area was 1,094.58 ± 150.3 Bq/m3 and 10 days fluctuations were placed in the range of 129 ± 40 Bq/m3 and 5,888 ± 700 Bq/m3. Also have been reported measurements of in soil radon concentrations in drill holes at 0.5 m depths during period of March
1977–October 1980, just after 4 March 1977, Mw 7.4 Vrancea earthquake. The knowledge of air–ground–gas 222Rn anomalies is very important for earthquake pre-signals assessment as well as for precisely location of geologic active
