AbstractSince 1987 multichannel instrumentation has been recording electromagnetic and seismoacoustic emissions in the Amare cave (Gran Sasso í L'Aquila). Equipment detecting RMC (Principality of Monaco) longwave broadcasting (216 kHz) has been operating in the same place. Data collected during this period have pointed out two different phenomena called «quiet» and «perturbed» that characterize the normal behaviour of the cave. On 25 August 1992 an earthquake with M = 3.9 occurred in the Gran Sasso area and on 4 June 1993 an earthquake with M = 4.3 occurred in Umbria, 100 km to north of the Amare cave. Before these earthquakes, electromagnetic, seismoacoustic, and RMC data showed anomalies. Here we present the observed phenomenology and discuss the possibility that the anomalies can be considered precursors of the earthquakes.
