Abstract: A continental plate movement in the Sunda Trench region resulted into the Myanmar Earthquake (M=6.8) of 24 August, 2016. The variations in the lithosphere–atmosphere-ionosphere (LAI) coupling take place during the occurrence of the earthquake. The thermodynamic equilibrium of the troposphere is very much connected with the atmospheric pressure, temperature, humidity, rainfall and wind speed. Some anomalies are observed on the surface temperature and other atmospheric parameters during the period. The anomalous surface latent heat increase takes place within a time interval of several days before a strong earthquake in this earthquake preparation zone. The variations in Lithosphere-Atmosphere-Ionosphere coupling during Myanmar earthquake (M=6.8) resulted in anomalous changes in different meteorological parameters. The variations in LAI may be due to enhanced radon and other greenhouse fluid emanations during the pre and post earthquake period. The meteorological data analyzed to investigate these observations as well as to invoke responses of the Myanmar earthquake. The occurrences of precursors during the pre-and post-periods of this earthquake from 1 August, 2016 to 30 August, 2016 are reported.
