Abstract. Results of the ULF electromagnetic emission during the Izu, 2000 earthquake (EQ) swarm and Miyake volcano eruptions during the summer period of 2000 are presented and analyzed. The analysis of the obtained data has been performed in 3 main directions: traditional statistical analysis, i.e. analysis of time dynamics of spectral density, polarization ratios and their derivatives, Principal Component Analysis, and Fractal Analysis. The statistical characteristics were studied at different frequency sub-bands in a frequency range 10-3-0.3 Hz. These methods of data processing are described and the obtained results are illustrated and discussed. Some peculiarities of the obtained results such as the rise of the second principal component and the rise of the fractal index can be interpreted as possible short-time precursors.
