Tungurahua Volcano in Ecuador spews hot stones Natural Disasters

Tungurahua — stratovolcano with steep walls in the eastern part of the Andes mountain range. Its height is 5023 meters. The volcano is located 15 kilometers away from one of the largest cities in Ecuador, Ambato city. Tungurahua is active since 1999, periodically spewing ash, smoke and lava. If a strong eruption of the lives of 20 thousand inhabitants of nearby villages at risk. In the area of high risk is a tourist town of Banos, whose residents have been evacuated after the eruption once Tungurahua in 1999.

GOALcity system from the company SpecLab: statistics become more refined

SpecLab company is focused on safety, but the possibility of its surveillance systems go far beyond that sphere. "Intelligent Video" study all the movements that make the objects in front of the cameras. Video analysis and event-driven logic can fill a wide range of database information, and algorithms such as detection of persons or determinant of car numbers, easy to formalize this information, binding to specific people or cars. In this study all: the nature, size, geometry, frequency, speed and direction, as well as a variety of specialized functions.

The system uses GOALcity-hour videostatistiku in the interest of conservation,

Heartbeat of the planet scientists have recorded

December 15, 2010. A rare natural phenomenon recently managed to secure it with a hydrophone, previously used in the tracking of Soviet nuclear submarines. Some scientists believe that the bottom activity — a kind of "heartbeat" of the planet. Found himicheskby process affects the composition of sea water on the deposition of metals, including gold, etc.

It is a question of some substance, like a volcanic lava, flowing slowly from the depths of the planet and sprawling on the ocean floor.

But all this is happening in the dark late at night, out of reach of the underwater realm,

Guide for those who observe the sun changes Facts

General facts

Our solar system consists of the Sun and everything that revolves around it: the planets, asteroids, comets. The radius of the Sun is 696,000 kilometers, which is 109 times greater than the radius of the Earth. Solar mass 1,99 x1030 pounds — to 333 thousand times the mass of Earth.

The sun is 150 million kilometers from Earth, 8.3 light-minutes. But this distance can vary depending on the position of the Earth in its orbit.

Sun — a star that is 110 times larger than Earth. Sun consists of

Residents of Costa Rica's Arenal Volcano Activity happy

September 13, 2013. In the past three days, local residents La Fortuna de San Carlos reported that in their opinion the Arenal Volcano can wake up because they heard thunder, and even made a couple of shots of clubs emerging from the volcano.

The possibility of increasing volcanic activity has brought some joy and optimism of those who are engaged in tourism in these parts. Indeed, because of the inaction of the volcano in the last three years, its attendance has declined sharply. However, experts have warned residents not to desire to become a reality.

Scientists are concerned about unusual seismic activity in the Azores in the Atlantic Ocean

Scientists are concerned about unusual seismic activity in the Azores in the Atlantic Ocean Danger Zone

Residents of the island of San Miguel authorities warned of the possible danger due to the increased seismic activity in the lake district of Fogo and Congreve.

Experts of the Azores University argue that the activity is caused by a small earthquake in the interaction of the Eurasian, African and American plates. This in turn explains the frequent volcanic tremors and earthquakes, typical for this region. October 19, 2011 was recorded last earthquake of 4.9 at a depth of 12 kilometers. However, seismologists do

How to survive in a magnetic storm?

Magnetic storm — It's quick and drastic changes in the magnetic field of the Earth, resulting in a period of high solar activity. Such changes will not have consequences for the inhabitants of the planet: a magnetic storm disrupts the function cardiovascular and digestive systems, the slow response of the central nervous system, reduces efficiency.

For example, the number of deteriorating health of coronary heart disease in the days of magnetic storms on50-55% More than on ordinary days. Of these, 25-27% Angina occurs on the eve of unfavorable days, the same — in the next day. Some weather-sensitive

El Niño warmed globally

July 2, 2013. Thanks dendrochronological analysis, and measurement of the radiation balance of the Earth's surface after the eruption of volcanoes Chinese scientists can say with confidence that the unusual activity of the El Niño phenomenon is a result of global warming. Another group of researchers suggested that climate model, which can be used to predict the next period of activity of the natural anomalies.

El Nino — a natural phenomenon, often accompanied by numerous victims, causing epidemic disease and even provoking armed conflict. The essence of the climate anomaly is this: the El Niño Southern Oscillation, or —

Hurricane frequency depends on air purity

June 25, 2013. A group of researchers from the meteorological centers Hadley conducted studies on the relationships between the frequency and intensity of storms and air quality, and came to very interesting results. As the researchers found, the efforts of people to make the air cleaner does not always have a positive impact on the mitigation of hurricanes or to prevent their formation.

It has long been known that in the modern atmosphere is a certain amount of solid particles of a certain size, for example, waste aerosols from industrial facilities or home-types of human activity. It is these aerosols

Volcanic activity in the Red Sea

Volcanic activity in the Red Sea Natural Disasters

As a result of the eruption of December 19, 2011 in the Red Sea fishermen witnessed lava fountains up to 30 meters. Seismic activity in the region is not limited to a single eruption, and December 23, a group of small islands off the west coast of Zubair Yemen, a new island.

This part of the Red Sea rift is over between the African and Arab tectonic plates, which is the process of actively forming the ocean floor. Zubair Islands, Yemen envelopes from the north-west to south-east, stand out above the sea
