This study aimed at the correlation analysis of geomagnetic variations related to earthquakes which occurred in and around the Korean Peninsula from 2012 to 2014. The wavelet-based semblance technique was used to confirm the geomagnetic variations related to earthquakes. As a result, a pattern of consistent geomagnetic variations in total magnetic has been found from the earthquakes occurred within 100 km radius around the observation site. A similar correlation between earthquake location and Z-field geomagnetic data was also confirmed by the wavelet-based semblance analysis. We mainly used the high quality geomagnetic measurements from the Cheongyang Observatory and additionally used the data from the Bohyunsan Observatory in order to validate the correlation between earthquake and Z-field geomagnetic data.
