Another earthquake in Mexico

Another earthquake in Mexico Natural Disasters

April 2, 2012 in Mexico, there was a strong earthquake, which is the continuation of seismic activity after a major earthquake of magnitude 7.6, which occurred March 20, 2012. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the epicenter of the earthquake was located at a distance of 17 kilometers from the city Ometepek, Guerrero, at a depth of 12 kilometers. Although there are more than 280 aftershocks since the March 20, the new 6.3 earthquake is considered the largest. Tremors were felt hundreds of miles away in Mexico City, where people are in a panic

Volcanic activity in the period from 21 to 27 March 2012

Volcanic activity in the period from 21 to 27 March 2012 Natural Disasters

During this period of seismic events occurred in 11 volcanoes, signs of a new volcanic activity appeared in five volcanoes:

IYEN (2799 m, east of. Java, Indonesia, 8,058 ° S, 114,242 ° E)

First change the chemical composition of water in the crater lake, where increased levels of CO2 and acidity. The surface temperature of the lake has increased from 28.8 to 45,1 º C, at a depth of 5 m, the temperature changed from 42.7 to 44,7 º. In March, the volcano is assigned a second

A new technology for monitoring volcanoes

A new technology for monitoring volcanoes Facts

According to data obtained from satellites, it was found that many volcanoes on the planet, once considered dormant, long ago are not. In the article "On the monitoring of volcanoes," published in "Science", underlines the importance of developing a global system for tracking all the volcanoes of the Earth to better predict eruptions and timely planning evacuation of local residents.

Fortunately, for the majority of volcanic surveillance is ongoing. However, as described in an article in 16 developing countries out of 440 348 active volcanoes have no or imperfect tracking system, although 65

As a result of solar storms in March, the Earth's atmosphere has warmed

As a result of solar storms in March, the Earth's atmosphere has warmed Facts

Solar activity, which is observed in the last few weeks has brought not only the remarkable aurora. According to recent studies, as a result of solar activity in March 2012, the Earth's upper atmosphere to get energy in an amount sufficient to ensure that all citizens of New York for two years. Although the flow of solar energy has caused interference to low-orbit satellites, they were not as severe as expected.

"It is believed that this is the biggest dose of energy, resulting

Earthquake in Mexico caused the seismic activity of the volcano in the capital of El Salvador

Earthquake in Mexico caused the seismic activity of the volcano in El Salvador's capital, Natural disasters

An earthquake of magnitude 7.4 that occurred March 20, 2012 near the Mexican resort city of Acapulco, probably awakened volcano in San Salvador, causing tremors in the location of the volcano. Until recently, the volcano located a thousand kilometers from the earthquake, was considered dormant. The last eruption was recorded stratovolcano in 1917.

According to the National monitoring service on March 21 in the vicinity of the volcano occurred 25 aftershocks, of which 8 power from 2.2 to 3.3. A series of aftershocks observed

High seismic activity in Costa Rica

December 31, 2012. According to the Costa Rican Volcanology and Seismology Observatory (OVSICORI), After a magnitude 7.6 earthquake that occurred on September 5 2012 year, the country recorded the highest level of seismic activity, which they saw in the last 62.

Strongest earthquake in the history of Costa Rica took place in 1950 in Nicoya (Nicoya), a magnitude of 7.8, and then 2012 earthquake that struck the same area of 7.6 points.

After earthquake on September 5th OVSICORI reported 75 earthquakes that were felt residents for 4 months after the main seismic event.

2010 reported a total of 6,245

15.07.12.Vpechatlyayuschee watch the light show in the sky these days the inhabitants of southern Canada and some U.S. states — the Northern Lights. This beautiful phenomenon is caused by the last peak of solar activity.

Just 14 July telescopes NASA space lab recorded the strongest solar flare. They were identified as the most powerful. Scientists argue that lights every year are becoming more intense. If previously dominated only green and pink colors, now clearly looked through the red tones. And recently lights not silent. Bright flashes of the polar aurora is often accompanied by a monotonous drone, or a

The sun starts to run amok

Sun

18.11.11.Ispanskie scientists, astronomers have found that the sun is entering a phase of particularly strong activity — storm on the surface of the star are much more frequent and stronger.

Researchers have a good look at this phenomenon. According to them, just another flash in the sun equal to the explosion of thousands and thousands of nuclear bombs.

Scientists say that these outbreaks can cause interruptions in communication and power outages. Unfortunately, astronomers have not been reported as such solar activity affects our health.

Expected eruption Reventador

Volcanoes

29.07.11.Vulkan Reventador, located on the border of the provinces of Napo and Sucumbios, 100 kilometers east of the capital of Ecuador, registers the new period of increasing activity, in connection with which the staff of the Geophysical Institute of the National Polytechnic School (EPN) moved to the continuous monitoring of the colossus.

Monitoring data, confirmed by observation from a helicopter, confirm that the observed accumulation of lava inside the crater, filled to the level of the highest point of the volcano.

Increasing the pressure inside the crater of the volcano led to the release of the active columns of

6.07.11.V Iceland recorded increased activity of the volcano Hekla (Hekla), known in medieval times as "the gates of hell."

It is reported by Agence France-Presse, with reference to the Icelandic geophysicists. Measuring instruments indicate the likely movement of magma in the depths of the volcano.

Hekla volcano, located in the southern part of Iceland, shows unusual activity in three days. Scientists from the University of Iceland said that he is ready to wake up, even though the eruption is not necessarily begin in the coming days.
