Is it necessary to make public predictions of earthquakes?

Experts' opinions on this issue differed D. Alizadeh, N. ABASOV

Seismologists, hiding behind a ban on opening projections hide their failure in predicting earthquakes. This in an interview with "Echo" said seismologist known Russian Viktor Bokov.

"In the case here as some of them, when the accuracy of their forecasts is about 90%, then to hide from the public the expected earthquake is a crime," — said the scientist.

Meanwhile V. Bokov also said that he fully agrees with G. Nazarov, the author of articles on the subject, published in an issue of "Echo."

On America could collapse 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 fault 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 these two plates has caused the most powerful earthquake measuring 9.2 points. Then the victims of disaster are 145 people.

Underground Krivbass: The Phantom Menace

26 yanvarya.Kak already reported "Bulletin", the morning of the 14th of January in Krivoy Rog were recorded tremors 3.9 points. It was a complete surprise to seismologists, even at the nearest seismic station to the city in the Crimea. Prof. Dr. Bella Pustovitenko, for example, questioned whether it was a purely natural phenomenon.

The tremors could not be natural and artificial origin caused by many years of activity of industrial objects, ie mining companies. Despite the differences of opinion, one experts said firmly: the earthquake could not have happened as a result of blasting. In Krivoy Rog terupravleniya State

In the accident at the Fukushima tsunami is not guilty, and the traditional Japanese razdolbaystvo

The accident at the Japanese nuclear power plant "Fukushima-1" was the result of operator error, the station, not the earthquake and tsunami, according to a published report of a special committee of Japan's parliament. According to the Commission, the responsibility lies with the operator of nuclear power plants Sompany Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) and public services for the control of atomic energy.

"The accident at the" Fukushima-1 "was not natural and man-made disaster. Nuclear power plant was not ready either to the impact of a strong earthquake or tsunami, "- said the commission.

Also, the report contains allegations against

The bigger the earthquake, the more powerful aftershocks it may cause

April 22, 2013. Seismologists from the U.S. conducted observations, which have resulted in evidence of the ability of powerful earthquakes trigger multiple and often quite strong aftershocks in the same area or a small distance from the first episode. Thus in 9% of cases a big push can cause the same or similar in magnitude quake far enough from the point of view of geography.

In his observations, scientists have included earthquakes from all over the world since 1979. It was found that out of 260 pushes the test magnitude more than 7, y 24 observed repeated episodes

On the effect of earthquakes on global warming

July 31, 2013. Studies conducted by a team of scientists from Germany and Switzerland, have shown that taking place under a layer of ocean water earthquakes contribute to the increase of global temperatures on the planet.

This effect arises from undersea earthquakes because earthquakes disturb the vast reserves of methane, resting in the depths of the ocean. Collects more than one millennium to the ocean floor methane, a major greenhouse gases of the atmosphere, is released from the deep storage and wanders out of the water into the air. Such a process has been launched in Pakistan 70 years ago,
