Short summary
In this paper, we summarize the anomalous phenomena that were observed before the super-giant earthquake of magnitude 9.0 that occurred on 11 March 2011 in Japan. These phenomena have been detected by means of ground-based measurements and satellite data. We find that all these phenomena are in agreement with a condensed matter physical model that motivated in the 1980s a short-term earthquake prediction method based on the detection of precursory electric signals.
