We report and discuss monitoring of short-term variations of widely used multi-geophysical parameters in Latur-Killari area in western India, the region that faced a major devastating earthquake in 1993. An abnormal rise in atmospheric temperature of more than 20 ° C at 11200 m height was observed in the air-flight just 100 km away from Latur during a monsoon period. To investigate the causes of such temperature rise, we studied seismicity of the area in relation to the 1993 Latur event, and continuously monitored ground-water level and soil Helium gas for one week immediately following this observation under a precursory ‘quick please’ operation in the study area. There are no precursory seismic signals associated with this temperature rise; hence the operation was suspended after one week time. Although this thermal anomaly is not followed by any major earthquake over the area, it has larger implications in atmosphere research area. While a detailed investigation of such anomaly is beyond the scope this paper, we report here the possibility that the satellite thermal sensor cannot penetrate thick clouds to accurately retrieve the temperature. We are cautious of arriving at a firm conclusion, but the findings of this study certainly call for continuous monitoring of temperature over the earthquake prone areas to gain insight into the physics of short-lived variation in temperature over spatially limited extent, especially over the earthquake prone areas for improved seismic hazard assessment.
