Sinking Holland should seriously consider the option of national evacuation

Dutch coast is still not very high quality prepared to meet with a strong flood. Many residents have no knowledge how to behave in the event of natural disasters. To correct this omission, by scientists from the University of the above plan developed effective evacuation of the island of Walcheren (population 112 thousand people) using a personal

The sea level dropped to grow back

Since the beginning of 2010 to mid-2011, the average global sea level fell by 5 mm. But how could this happen in a constant sea level rise?

A case in a huge increase in rainfall in Australia, northern South America and South-East Asia, which in turn was caused by La Niney, that is, surface cooling of the tropical Pacific Ocean, which has far-reaching consequences for weather around the globe.

Scientists have found that special beak helped crows learn tools

New Caledonian crows have acquired the ability to make and use tools thanks to an unusually straight beak and canceled the binocular vision, say British biologists in a paper published in the journal Nature Communications.

It is believed that most of the birds of the genus of crows have remarkable mental abilities. They often outperform many other mammals and birds in tests of intelligence. Most ornithologists believe New Caledonian crows (Corvus moneduloides) champions in the field. These birds, along with a man and some higher primates, part of the "elite club" of animals, able to make and use tools.

Appears in Baikal station, which will predict earthquakes

Unique deep research station appears in Baikal in March 2013, its data will predict earthquakes in two days, according to RIA Novosti director of the Institute of Applied Physics, Irkutsk University (ISU) Nicholas weekdays.

The station will accurately measure the fluctuations of the electromagnetic field of the planet.

Experiments with measuring fluctuations of the electromagnetic field in Baikal started in 2003. Scientists have set a custom install, which is the electric aerial sensors and an acoustic transmitter. In August 2008, managed to record strong changes and unusual variation of the electric field on the eve of a major earthquake, with

Scientists have found the remains of a saber-toothed plant-eating dinosaur in South Africa

Earthquake off Sumatra in April, split in two lithospheric plates

A series of powerful aftershocks in the vicinity of the Indonesian island of Sumatra in April 2012 were "traces" of tectonic processes, splitting the Indo-Australian tectonic plate on the "Asian" and "Australian" part, say geologists in three articles published in the journal Nature.

"We've never seen an earthquake like this. It is part of the complex processes occurring in the split of the lithospheric plate. This geological process — the formation of new plate boundaries will leave millions of years and is likely to happen in that time a thousand earthquakes of such force" — said one of the authors

Forest fire or a tornado?

Local scouts from Alice Springs, Australia, witnessed the unusual natural phenomenon, it is extremely dangerous to human life and the natural environment as a whole.
