Short summary
We use satellite data to analyze precursory anomalies of the western China Ms 7.1 Yushu earthquake by analyzing the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and using the full-wave model to illustrate a possible mechanism for how the anomalies occurred. The results show that very low-frequency (VLF) radio wave SNR in the ionosphere decreased before the Yushu earthquake. The full-wave simulation results confirm that electron density variation in the lower ionosphere will affect VLF radio signal SNR.
