Abstract
Depending on the China Earthquake Network Center (CENC) measurement, the Yutian M7.3 earthquake struck at 5:19 pm on 12 February 2014. It happened in the Altyn Tagh fault zone. The cycle process of the tidal force of the celestial body for the earthquake was calculated firstly in this paper. From the result, we found that the earthquake occurred at the low point phase. Meantime, the OLR (Outgoing Long-wave Radiation) change was analyzed based on NOAA satellite data around the time of the earthquake in the China area. The preliminary result shows that the OLR have changed with the tide force changing for the earthquake. In temporal, the change went through: Initial OLR rise→strength→reaching abnormal peak→attenuation→return to normal. In detail, the initial indication of anomaly was detected on 9 Feb (3 days before the main shock) and the maximum reaches the value of 11W/m2 northward from the epicenter. And the anomalous area of 10 Feb is closest to the epicenter. There are still many theoretical questions have to be answered. However, OLR have become one of parameters used for precursor studies and the OLR early anomalies appearance of earthquakes.
