In this document, with the purpose of strengthening more in the knowledge of the previous events on the earthquakes, the possible connection between
natural voltage and electromagnetic energy emanating from the inner layers of
the Earth and the seismic activity in the Mexican seismic coastal border, is
evaluated, through an indirect estimation of the statistical analysis of
natural water conductivity data (μS/cm) and the seismic activity occurred in
the same period within continental and marine environment, monitored
intensively from February 2 to April 15, 2015 and from May 11 to July 17, 2015
in two ordinary man-made wells. A total 128,469 water conductivity data with a sampling
frequency of 45 seconds, confronted with 950 earthquakes occurred in the same
periods to distance range of 50, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 350 and 400
kilometers far away from a conductivity sensor, are analyzed. As results, in
the range of 50 kilometers round the conductivity sensor, the study area
applied demonstrates to be a location where the major quantity of earthquakes
and most atypical conductivity variations
occurred. The influence of the local environment on the behavior of the
conductivity data is debated according to the geographical position of the
conductivity sensor. Within the continental environment, the range of 0 to 50
km showed the most important statistical significance, revealing to have the
most number of earthquakes, with higher values and more intensity, particularly
when the trend of conductivity data is descending. Within the marine environment,
a very similar connection between the conductivity data behavior and seismic
activity occurred was observed.
