The Fisher-Shannon information (FS) plane, defined by the Fisher information measure and the Shannon entropy power, is used to investigate the complex dynamics of magnetotelluric data of three stations in Taiwan. In the FS plane the electric and magnetic components are significantly separated, characterized by different degrees of order. Further investigation shows that signals measured in areas with very high level of seismic activity are well discriminated. (C) 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
