Seismic activity in Baku

October 10. At the International Conference on Seismology in Baku (Azerbaijan), American scientist and seismologist Robert King reported that in Baku and Absheron peninsula is expected to increase in seismic activity as a result of a compression fracture between the Lesser and Greater Caucasus. Their study showed that the Arabian and Eurasian lithospheric pliy characterized by high strength, as a result they do not deform in the country, and tremors are the result of ocean activities.

In the Caucasus problems are observed in the south and the north, there is some motion and deformation in the lowlands. In Baku, the

Solar activity is dangerous for the Summer Olympic Games

Solar activity is dangerous for the Summer Olympic Games Facts

Olympic Games may be adversely affected by possible new solar flares during the current year, British physicist Alan Woodward of the University of Surrey. Scientists believe that these outbreaks are the events associated with the theory of "Black Swan," which may or may not happen, but if happens, have extraordinary impact on humanity and the planet. This is how you can describe what happened a year ago in Japan, tsunami that killed 16,000 people and provoke leakage of radiation.

Solar activity in 2012 has already shown its power when down

Review of volcanic activity in the beginning of March Natural Disasters

During the first week in March 2012 seismic activity 17 volcanoes on the planet in varying degrees, changed its character. About five new volcanoes have moved to more dangerous stage.

Besides Bezymyannyi (55,978 ° N, 160,587 ° E) in Central Kamchatka, has been assigned the "red" key risk is worth noting as volcanoes Cleveland, Etna, Kanaga and Tungurahua.

In Kamchatka volcano awoke Danger Zone

The Kamchatka Peninsula and the North Kuril Islands is marked increase in seismic activity. Especially dangerous is the volcano Nameless, which has awarded the highest "red" code of danger. Seismologists believe that the eruption could begin at any time.

The volcano is located at 55 ° 58'N, 160 ° 36'E, its height is 2.895 meters above sea level. Nameless is considered one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the modern world. Its seismic activity started to progress in the middle of February. To date, the lava dome in the crater of the volcano rose

In Iceland this week about a thousand earthquakes recorded

October 5, 2013. Very close to the northern coast of Iceland, about 10 km on the city Gegurta from September 25 to present seysmochuvstvitelnye instruments recorded about 1,000 individual tremors. Their depth varied from 15 km, which corresponds to the boundary of the mantle and the crust, up to several hundred meters, that is, just at the surface.

The last two were thrust magnitude 3 and 3.2 points, the rest of the mini-earthquakes were within the same magnitude or less. However, the small depth of their epicenters enabled devices easily register Occurred activity. Scientists suggest that the earthquake caused

Mexico's Popocatepetl volcano threw out a new cloud of ash and gas

May 15, 2013. Most Mexican volcano Popocatepetl unabated — Tuesday morning, he again threw the plume of steam, smoke and gas, according to website of the National Center for the Prevention of Natural Disasters in Mexico.

The cloud of volcanic ash rose to a height of three kilometers and then settled on the nearby town in the state of Puebla, reported the online edition of the local newspaper El Universal.

In particular, a thin layer of ash covered the streets in the village at the foot of the volcano Paso de Cortés, and the cities of Atlixco and Uehotsingo,

Seismic activity in northern California

Seismic activity in northern California Natural Disasters

February 14, 2012 in Northern California earthquake at a depth of 32.9 kilometers force 5.6. The epicenter was located close to the National Park "Redwood." Tremors were felt not only in California, but also in the southern part of Oregon. Day, there was also a few jolts to a depth of 0.5 kilometers of the power of 3 to 4.3 near Anderson Springs, where 8 November 1980 there was a major earthquake measuring 7.3.

In an area where there were the most violent shocks, the most populated cities are Arcata (17 000) and

In the south of Russia in recent years has sharply increased seismic activity

8 noyayurya. In the south of Russia in recent years has sharply increased seismic activity. Worthy of special mention of Azov and the Black Sea. Their coast line is constantly changing. There are new island, or, conversely, areas of land are covered with water. Scientists have found such phenomena are associated with the movement of tectonic plates. Is it dangerous to humans?

Bouncing over the potholes, an old "loaf" in the day overcomes hundreds of kilometers. Scientists tour the Krasnodar region in search of mud volcanoes. They found more than a hundred.

"This volcano is fairly quiet. But

NASA spacecraft has found signs of geological activity on the Moon. The device Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) has transferred the image is converted as the moon's surface, forming a small valley on its sites.
