Earthquake of magnitude 6.4 occurred in Argentina

Earthquake of magnitude 6.4 occurred on Monday in northern Argentina, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

The earthquake occurred at 02.07 local time (09.07 MSK). Hearth tremors occur at depths 589.3 kilometers.

The epicenter was located at a distance of 116 kilometers from the city of Santiago del Estero, the capital of the eponymous province.

According to Reuters, the information on casualties or damage were reported.

Argentina passes through the Pacific "fire zone" — the band of volcanoes and tectonic faults up to 40 thousand kilometers. He circles the Pacific Ocean, passing along the coasts of North and South America to

Shiveluch threw a column of ash

Kamchatka volcano Shiveluch threw a column of ash to a height of seven feet above sea level. There is no danger to the population. Plume from the eruption lasted for 220 miles.

According to the experts, the particles of volcanic materials and gases released into the atmosphere, can be hazardous to aviation, according to ITAR-TASS.

Shiveluch — the northernmost and one of the most active of active volcanoes of Kamchatka. Over the last fifteen hundred years, there were at least ten of its catastrophic eruption.

Warm ocean sharpening ice of Antarctica

An international team of scientists led by the British Antarctic Survey (British Antarctic Survey) found that warm ocean currents are the main cause of the loss of ice in Antarctica.

The researchers used data from the laser for ICESat, from satellites NASA, whose goal is to change the thickness of the fixing of the ice shelves of Antarctica.

Ice shelves — floating or in part on the bottom of the glaciers flowing from the coast, in the form of thinning to the edge of plates, ending cliff.

Of the 54 ice shelves in Antarctica 20 harbor due to warm ocean

Shiveluch in Kamchatka ejects ash column to a height of up to 9 km

The northernmost active volcano of Kamchatka — Shiveluch emitted a column of ash to a height of up to 9 kilometers, according to RIA Novosti, the representative of the Institute of Volcanology and Seismology.

Increased activity of Shiveluch volcano, whose height is about 3.3 thousand meters above sea level, was launched in May 2009. In the dome of the volcano is a normal eruption formed cleft depth of about 30 meters. For settlements eruption no danger, but plumes pose a serious threat to aviation

"Video surveillance of the volcano hampered by low cloud, but seismic data suggest that the high

The earthquake in Chile and Peru led to the destruction

The powerful earthquake that struck on Monday at the border between Peru and Chile, and the destruction caused power outages in northern Chile, damaged several roads, reports the Associated Press referring to the governor of the Chilean administrative region of Tarapaca José Durán (Jose Durana).

According to recent U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the magnitude of the quake, recorded at 06.00 local time (14.00 MSK) was 6.2. Hearth lies at a depth 98.3 kilometers.

Previously reported that the quake was magnitude 5.9, and the center lies at a depth of 22.3 kilometers.

The epicenter was located at a distance of 66

Geologists have found in the Pacific Ocean pulsating underwater volcano

European and New Zealand geologists discovered near the Pacific island of Tonga underwater volcano with a very restless nature — its height varies by tens of centimeters in a few weeks, according to a paper published in the journal Nature Geoscience.

Submarine volcanoes on Earth is much more than "land" — 32,000 against 1.5 thousand — but they have been studied much worse because of their inaccessibility.

A team led by Anthony Watts (Anthony Watts) from Oxford University (UK) has found most unusual volcano in the Pacific Ocean, near the Kermadec and Tonga archipelago, about 800 kilometers north-west of

The cyclone disrupted communication with the suburbs of Petropavlovsk

Transport links to the suburbs of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and parts of aborted because of the cyclone, according to the city administration.

Atmospheric vortex began to have an impact on a peninsula in the early hours of Monday. Wind force increased on the coasts to 23-28 meters per second, black ice on the roads, visibility is less than 500 meters. Due to bad weather canceled classes in schools of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. Complicated traffic. Traffic police recommended unless absolutely necessary motorists not to travel on the road.

Snow cyclone hit the Kamchatka declared avalanche danger

Powerful cyclone brought to southern Kamchatka squally wind and snow, said the regional weather center.

Atmospheric vortex began to have an impact on a peninsula in the early hours of Monday. Wind force increased on the coasts to 23-28 meters per second, black ice on the roads, visibility is less than 500 meters.

Due to bad weather canceled classes in schools of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. Complicated traffic. Traffic police recommended unless absolutely necessary motorists not to travel on the road.

According to the Kamchatka avalanche center, heavy rains caused the increased danger of vanishing large masses of snow from the slopes of

Scientists say the increased activity of volcanoes in Sakhalin

Specialists of the Institute of Marine Geology and Geophysics (IMGG) FEB RAS point increase in volcanic activity in the Sakhalin region, with the claim that the threat to the population of this region is not present, the press service of the institute.

To this conclusion, the meeting Sakhalin branch of the Russian expert advice on earthquake prediction, seismic hazard assessment and risk (SF RES).

"Recent years have seen increased volcanic activity in the region. On Sakhalin Island — is erupting volcano Sarychev Peak on Matua Island (2009), Ekarma on the same island (2010), Ivan the Terrible Iturup (August 2012). Last

Atmospheric pollution — another step towards suicide …

At present the problems of humanity, there are many. In general, they relate to each of us. Still, people do not always understand it, and therefore do not do anything to change things. That's the cause of many global problems.

Not only the social process, but also a question of civilization appears to people today. Next to the contamination of drinking water we drink every day, is another important global issue — pollution. For some reason, people are much more interesting to pay attention to the expensive jewelry or a copy, replica watch, than to stand face to face with
