In Iceland, scientists record the earthquakes near the volcano Katla

Earthquake

6.09.11.Ryadom with the largest Icelandic volcano Katla greatly increased seismic activity. In recent days, scientists have recorded several small earthquakes, according to Associated Press.

"This is one of the most dangerous volcanoes, so we closely follow him. Earthquakes near Katla happen regularly, but quite unusual, is now a series of small earthquakes occur almost every ten minutes, "- said Pall Einarsson of the University of Iceland.

Volcanic activity around Katla started to increase in July, but has only recently reached the tremors of magnitude 3.0.

Iceland is located in the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, a high level of volcanic activity. Large

Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, August 13 — RIA Novosti. Powerful plumes to a height of up to 6 kilometers from the crater are the northernmost active volcano of Kamchatka — Shiveluch, told RIA Novosti 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 threat to aviation.

"Ash explosions accompanied by lots of surface seismic

In the Amur region growing record seismic activity

Forecast

28.03.11.Uzhe weeks vibration force to two points occur with alarming regularity locals. However, according to the scientists, this is hardly the only echoes of the Japanese earthquake. We are talking about several factors.

Tremors were recorded in Ust-Nyukzha, villages Yuktali, Olyokma, Dyugabul. However, serious damage is nowhere. Even in Tynda, where in contrast to villages have multistory buildings.

Amur scientists believe that the seismic activity in the Far East increased over recent years. The reason several factors.

Central American volcano increased its activity

Central American volcano increased its activity Facts

According to seismologists in Nicaragua, April 29, 2012 increased the activity of Masaya volcano, located 20 miles south of Managua. The volcano began to emit more sulfur dioxide, which increases the level of seismic hazard in the region.

Sulfur released into the atmosphere along with the distinctive sound of the main crater formed fault. Experts conduct close monitoring of the Masai, whose surface temperature has risen above the norm, but there is no emergency measures will not be undertaken. National Park near the volcano will continue to work.

Masaya is one of the

In the state of Washington have discovered a new fault crust Facts

In the north-western Pacific Ocean are quite serious tectonic events. From the Cascadia subduction zone, where the tectonic plate of Juan de Fuca is moving under the North American plate, and to the fault zone near Seattle, where 1,100 years ago the real earthquake happened to 7, there was the risk of renewed seismic activity.

The figure shows five areas paleoseysmicheskoy activity (red circles) and three Holocene fault (solid red lines).

Approximately 60 km north of the described location and located close to the extremely dangerous fault in

April 26, 2012 Shiveluch volcano, located on the Kamchatka Peninsula, released a column of ash high 10.7 km above sea level. It is reported that in the surrounding towns had the volcanic dust. Deadly threat increases the activity of Shiveluch for residents of Kamchatka is not represented.

April 25 at the area of the volcano there were two aftershocks. After them came the crater ash column, visible even from a distance of 50 km (town keys). Since the beginning of 2012 is the most powerful emission of ash on the volcano. Aviation code red

The increase in the number of earthquakes in the United States — the result of human activity

The increase in the number of earthquakes in the United States — the result of human activity Facts

The U.S. Geological Survey began to study the question marked increase in the number of earthquakes of 3 or more on the U.S. srednekontinentalnoy. Tremors, though not different capacity, but there is a big part of the population. The scientists used ultra-sensitive technology to track seismic activity, seeing a clear increase in earthquakes: from 20 to 50 shocks in 2009, to 87 in 2010 and 134 in 2011.

In early 2011, the average number of earthquakes of 3 or more increased significantly,
