Japan earthquake shifted the gravitational orbit satellites

Tohoku earthquake that struck Japan on March 11 changed the Earth's gravitational field, so that affected the orbits of satellites.

This suggests that the earthquake was stronger and deeper than shown earthly instruments.

It is a spacecraft twin GRACE (Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment, «Climate Experiment and gravitational perturbations"), which fly 220 kilometers apart in a polar orbit about 500 kilometers above the Earth. Objective of the mission is to establish a map of the gravitational field of the planet. Satellites do it by controlling the impact of subtle changes in the field

In heaven and on earth

November 2, 2011 19:59

The devastating earthquake that struck Japan in March this year, the impact on the upper atmosphere before as tremors were reported on the ground. This is the conclusion reached by Japanese scientists at the University of Hokkaido. The article was published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.

Scientists hope that this discovery can be used to prevent subsequent earthquakes. The researchers found that during the movement of the earth's crust formed and tsunami waves that reached ionosphere — one of the highest layers of the atmosphere.

Now surveyor and geophysicist Kosuke Heki (Kosuke Heki) from Hokkaido

In the Czech Republic there was a small earthquake



25.08.11.V near Cheb (Czech Republic), an earthquake measuring three on the Richter scale.

Experts do not rule out that it could be a series of aftershocks. Told Joseph Goralek of Geophysical Center of the Academy of Sciences.

According to Radio Prague, the area is considered vysokoseysmichnoy Cheb region, but, as a rule, people do not notice the tremors. It is assumed that the epicenter of the earthquake was located in Germany — not far from the western city of the Czech Republic — Asha.

An earthquake measuring two to three points is unable

Stavropol will shake


30.01.12.V this year on the planet begins a period of seismic activity. The kingdom of Pluto will remind myself more often than usual. In 2012, the planet will begin the extreme value of volcanic and seismic activity, and this period will last until about 2015.

This statement was made Professor Elchin Khalilov (Azerbaijan) at a scientific conference. According to him, during periods of high solar activity, seismic and volcanic activity of the Earth reaches the maximum value. Previous sweep was in 2001, when worldwide wave of earthquakes of varying strength.

These cycles of solar activity are numbered — said
