Japan Quake Precursors

Was the March 11 Japan quake forecastable? A team of scientists involved in research on earthquake precursors has released a pre-publication copy of a paper analyzing distinct precursor signals in the atmosphere and ionosphere in the days preceding the disaster. As we have presented on this website, the science behind earthquake precursors has been definitively established, while the official government position in the United States has been to ignore or suppress such work, and to eliminate necessary monitoring programs, as has been most recently carried out by Presidential dictat under Obama. Oyang Teng reviews the argument made by the authors of the recent paper, a link to which can be found here.

*Correction: At this time, the affiliation for Dimitar Ouzounov, a co-author of the paper, should be listed as Chapman University, rather than Goddard Space Flight Center.
