We analyze the ion concentrations of groundwater issuing from deep wells located near the epicenter of the recent earthquake of magnitude 6.9 near Kobe, Japan, on January 17, 1995. These concentrations are well fitted by log-periodic modulations around a leading power law. The exponent (real and imaginary parts) is very close ta those already found for the lits of precursory seismic activity for Loma Prieta and the Aleutian Islands. This brings further support for the general hypothesis that… CONTINUE READING
