Short summary
Ionosonde data and crustal earthquakes with magnitude M ≥ 6.0 observed in Greece during the 2003–2015 period were examined. The ionospheric anomalies are identified on the observed variations of the sporadic E-layer parameters and foF2 at the Athens observatory. The empirical relationships between ionospheric anomalies and the earthquake magnitude and the epicentral distance are obtained. The possibility of using the relationships obtained for earthquake prediction is finally discussed.
