## Abstract

A mathematical model of seismo-hydro-electromagnetic (EM)-temperature geophysical field interaction has been formulated, according to the principles of the magneto-thermo-elasticity and magneto-hydrodynamic theories. Signals of different physical natures, arising in a lithosphere–ocean–atmosphere domain as a result of submarine seismic excitation, were computed. On the basis of satisfactory results of comparisons with measurements, a multidisciplinary vertically distributed (from the seafloor up to the ionosphere) tsunami precursors detection system is described.
