New radar systems show how the earthquake changed the landscape

Group of geologists from the U.S., Mexico and China use laser technology to study how the earthquake could change the landscape. In particular, geologists want to know more about the extent of the earthquake magnitude 7.2, which occurred April 4, 2010, near Mexicali, in northern Mexico. Equipment that sends and receives the stream of laser pulses from the earth surface features can be measured with an accuracy of a few centimeters. The researchers were able to make a more detailed scan of affected areas. In the above image, blue shows where the surface down, and red means going up compared

Landslide shook Alaska and Canada

Even by Alaskan standards, landslide Glacier National Park Gleysher Bay — an event of enormous size.

A runaway rock buried a beautiful white glacier and caused an earthquake of 3.4 points in Alaska and an earthquake in Canada. Due to the distance and the height of the scene found a mudslide in July, a month after the event. And then by chance — thanks to the pilot "air taxi", which snapped a few pictures while flying over the glacier.
