Warning of volcanic eruptions and seismic activity in Australia

Scientists are now warning that volcanoes in Western Victoria and South Australia can be activated in the coming days. Weather gave scientists a few hours after two earthquakes that occurred this morning. Using new techniques, scientists from the University of Melbourne found that volcanoes erupt usually every 2,000 years, the last eruption at Mount Gambier, South Australia was 5,000 years ago.

Professor Bernie Joyce says Australia needs a plan for evacuation in case of eruption.

Scientists in Victoria are warning that we must prepare for a stronger shock after the earthquake of medium size, which took place

The new seismic station installed near volcano Tolbachik

Seismologists installed in Tolbachik volcano in Kamchatka mobile seismic stations, which will run until the end of the eruption, according to the Kamchatka volcano.

Flat Tolbachik began erupting on 27 November. In the area of the southern slope formed two fractured breakthrough with Lava — a stream of top-break was more than six kilometers from the bottom — 18 kilometers. Periodically over the volcano ash column rises.

Group of Volcanology and Seismology, made on the eve of Aerial circled Tolbachik eruption, in which to obtain the latest data on the activity of the volcano, installed a new seismic station.

New York — Madrid seismic zone was on the move

New Madrid seismic zone on the move. Huge gaps where whole streets disappear, emerged in late June 2011. Great movement begins the New Madrid fault line.

The upper reaches of the Mississippi, better known among geologists called the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ), form part of the rift — a fault line, which stretches for hundreds of kilometers, which in ancient geological epoch several times threatened to split the continent of North America. With the beginning of the Atlantic Ocean that possibility was ruled out. This "stop the crack", now known as Rilfutsky rift formed a depression, which

In the eastern part of Indonesia on the island of New Guinea earthquake of magnitude 6.5 on the Richter scale.

The epicenter was located 53 km from the city of Warren West Papua province, reports RIA "Novosti". Information on deaths and destructions have been reported yet.

Because of the deep to find the source of 132 kilometers beneath the Pacific Ocean tsunami threat to Indonesia not.

The island nation is in the normal fault, called "Pacific Ring of Fire." On this site the two plates collide, one forms the bottom of the Indian Ocean, and the second relating to Asia,
