After the earthquake in March 2011 changed the status of water in the Japan Trench

May 30, 2013. A survey conducted by Japanese scientists found that the water in the Japan Trench was troubled by the earthquake that struck northeastern Japan in March 2011, according to NHK.

The researchers from the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology have used a special camera to explore the deep-water areas near the epicenter of the quake.

They found that even 4 months after the earthquake, sediments still circling above the bottom is about 110 kilometers south-east of the focal zone.

Usually the seabed at a depth of 7,000 meters calmer with weak currents. The researchers attribute the

In Canada, the expected strong earthquake danger zone

Canadian geologists believe that we should expect a strong earthquake, comparable in scale to the disasters in Japan and China. It is assumed that the most vulnerable region is the West Coast, where over 6000 years, there were 13 earthquakes of magnitude 9, the last of which was 311 years ago.

Other seismically dangerous areas include Baffin Island, the Ottawa Valley and St. Lawrence Valley. Considered the most tranquil regions of Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario.

On the West Coast for the last 70 years there have been over 100 earthquakes of at
