On America could strike a giant tsunami

May 17. California and Hawaii threatened by giant waves, such as those that hit Japan last spring.

A study conducted recently in New Mexico, at the Institute of Mining, showed that the rift crust on the seabed in the south of the Aleutian Islands can generate an earthquake of 9 points.

Earthquake-prone zone — Aleutian subduction zone is in a place where the edge of the Pacific plate goes under the North American plate. In March 1964, the collision of the two plates has caused the most powerful earthquake of magnitude 9.2. Then disaster victims were 145 people.

Earth's hum is caused by coastal waves

Earth's hum arises from the sea floor, and not during the turbulence in the atmosphere, says U.S. researcher, supports a new theory, which arose in 2004.

Hum — low by its sound and continuous rumble present in the soil, even without earthquakes, but detectable with highly sensitive seismometers. Its frequency is about 10 millihertz below that range, perceived by the human ear.

Earlier in 1998, Japanese researchers have suggested that this noise could be caused by a "clash" of turbulent flows to the ground.

Six years ago, a group of researchers led by Barbara R. University of California, Berkeley (USA),
