    Notes: Abstract The movement of the seawater across the earth's magnetic field produces a large-scale motional electric field. Using the Point Arena, California, to Hanauma Bay, Hawaii, unpowered HAW-1 cable, we have studied the geopotential across this distance to look for possible tsunami-induced fields that might have been produced following the April 1992 Cape Mendocino earthquake. We have used a ten-day interval prior to and including the earthquake as a reference for geopotential signals and for geomagnetic activity. We have also used geomagnetic data from Point Arena, Honolulu and Boulder as reference data. The results of the analyses show that there are tsunami-related effects in the cable geopotential data. These are (a) larger voltage prediction errors (residuals) for the interval following the main shock; (b) enhanced (compared to the 10d reference interval) geopotential spectral power following the main shock: two enhancements are larger than geomagnetically-induced spectral power enhancements in the same time interval; and (c) strong evidence for an ∼30 min “echo” in the cable geopotential signal following the main shock.

    Notes: [Auszug] The solid line in Fig. 1 shows the approximate route of the TAT-6 cable across the North Atlantic (length 6,300 km). This cable is powered at both Green Hill and St Hilaire by constant current power supplies with opposite polarity at each end producing a current flow from west to east through the ...
