We study the oscillations superimposed on an intense discharge feeding a dense Z pinch. The periods, measured in different conditions, allow the measurement of the plasma inductance. We show that the variation of this inductance is related to the current penetration in the plasma, the anomalous current distribution, and the superconductive behavior of a dense turbulent plasma.
