Russian scientists have created a model for the calculation of seismic hazard

In Russia it is the first model of this kind, which can be used to predict the effects of earthquakes in specific areas of the city.

Scientists from the Center for Geophysical Research Vladikavkaz Scientific Centre RAS-based REC "Geoengineering" looking for answers to questions about what will be the nature and extent of the devastation caused by the earthquake in a particular area

What factors influence the effects of the earthquake? This question is posed to science every time when assessing the devastation provoked by a powerful shift of the crust. Thus, the Niigata earthquake in Japan in

Azerbaijan has opened a new area of seismic activity

Azerbaijan has opened a new area of seismic activity Facts

In 1859, in the center of Azerbaijan earthquake completely destroyed the country's capital Shemakha. The consequences of this shock was so severe that the capital had to be moved to another city Baku is located on the shore of the Caspian Sea. According to new research, in this part of the country, a new area of seismic activity that can provoke strong enough earthquake.

Ten-year analysis of the GPS data around Baku seismologists discovered vast zone vnutrizemnogo voltage and geological deformation, threatening a large population of the capital

Hundreds dead after earthquake in Afghanistan

Hundreds dead after earthquake in Afghanistan Natural Disasters

In the north-east of Afghanistan in the densely populated province of Baghlan, there were two earthquakes caused extensive landslides. Under the debris of rocks and mud buried provisionally estimated 25-30 homes in the five mountains. Reported hundreds killed in hit area — near Burke. Due to the fact that the area is quite remote from the disaster communications, rescue teams arrived late and search operations have just begun.

Unfortunately, the nearest medical center is located only 40 km away from the affected area, which reduces the chance of staying alive
