Specialists Institute of Defense Emergency summed up the second phase of tests on seismic stability of fragments of brick buildings, and to enhance the external reinforcement using carbon strips FibARM.
According to the study artificial earthquake of 9 points did not cause any harm to the model enhanced carbon materials.
In mid-August, the results of the tests were carried out on the seismic stability of the fragments of brick buildings: the conventional and enhanced The reinforcement system of carbon ribbons FibARM. The technology is developed Holding company "Composite". It is designed to enhance the buildings and structures,

September 20, 2013. Seismologists from the University of California found that 8.3-magnitude earthquake in the Sea of Okhotsk, occurred on May 24 of this year, was the most powerful of all known deep earthquakes. Research published papers Science, its summary can be read on the University website.
Scientists have found that seismic activity hypocenter was at a depth of 609 kilometers under the shelf of the Sea of Okhotsk. Earthquake, so no doubt be attributed to a poorly-studied class of deep, although the velocity of the fault, and some other indication it was "very similar to the surface of

December 29. Earthquake in Tuva, including, and what happened on the night of Wednesday to be associated with the gradual movement of the Indian tectonic plate deep into Eurasia at a rate of 4.3 centimeters per year, which will go on for tens of millions of years, said RIA Novosti head of the laboratory of the Institute of Petroleum Geology and Geophysics, Ivan Kulakov.
According to him, the heterogeneous composition of collision zone — the area of the lithosphere of Asia, in which "drives" India — permanently deformed as a result of forming mountain ranges. These deformations cause mechanical stress

Japan again threatens tsunami Natural disasters
March 13, 2012 on the north-eastern coast of Japan, an earthquake measuring 6.8. Since strong aftershocks continued, the National Weather Service warned residents of coastal prefectures of Aomori and Iwate, and the central and eastern part of the island of Hokkaido about a possible tsunami, but the warning was soon canceled.
The earthquake occurred at a depth of 10 kilometers at a distance of 210 kilometers from the northern coast of Hokkaido and caused heavy seas: Japanese coast waves reached 20 and 10 centimeters. Therefore the height of the proposed tsunami could reach half
