In this paper, the causes of the occurrence of the temperature increase by an impending earthquake of low altitude atmosphere and on the ground surface have been preliminarily expounded through several simulative control experiments. Air polarized by the anomalous atmospheric static electric field is regarded as the primary factor to create air temperature increase to a large degree and over a large area in the sunlight. In addition, another cause is considered as the temperature increase effect of “polluted” air.
