Strong earthquake in Russia forced to suspend oil deliveries to China

Strong earthquake in Russia forced to suspend oil deliveries to China Natural Disasters

An earthquake of magnitude 6 occurred in the Amur region at a depth of 15 kilometers, 130 kilometers southwest of the town of Tynda, the Amur region, 211 kilometers north-west of Tahe, Heilongjiang Province, and 265 kilometers east of the city Mogocha, Chita region. The epicenter was located near the town of Skovorodino, in which about 10,000 people and where is the end point of the ESPO pipeline.

Tynda residents were evacuated. In Skovorodino wall fell central heating. Company "Transneft" suspended by 5.5 hours of delivery of

Big earthquake in Tohoku affected upper atmosphere earlier than Earth

Big earthquake in Tohoku affected upper atmosphere earlier than Earth Natural Disasters

An earthquake of magnitude 9 struck March 11, 2011 on the coast of the Tohoku region in Japan, heralded the world's first integrated global disasters wrought disastrous tsunami, micro-earthquakes and tremors around the world.

Scientists have recently discovered that the earthquake was preceded by fluctuations in the ionosphere, the upper part of the atmosphere. Failures of electrically charged particles in the ionosphere caused by an abnormality in the radio signals between systems through global positioning satellite receivers and repeaters ground stations.

Geophysicist Kosuke Heki analyzed data from more

Japan offers even more powerful earthquake and tsunami

April 18. Japan's government listens to the echo of last year's earthquake and tsunami: underwater faults that surround the country, can lead to more serious disasters than had been thought. Last week, officials in charge of disaster management, informed the office of the simulation results, which showed that there is a danger of a tsunami even more terrible than the Tohoku.

The data were obtained by a research team headed by Katsuyuki Abe, professor emeritus University of Tokyo. Scientists have upgraded the official model by incorporating recent major earthquakes — including last year's magnitude 9.0 Japanese and Chilean,

The loss of life from seismic landslides

May 12 — the third anniversary of the devastating earthquake Venchuanskogo, also known as Sichuan. In honor of this sad date of Chengdu University of Technology organized a conference on the problem of landslides induced by earthquakes. My presentation will be held in the morning session and the main focus of it is on the loss of life from landslides caused by earthquakes. I will also mention our journal Nature Geoscience, leaving on Sunday, in the discussion regarding the mass balance in the mountain range. I also write about this interesting issue in the blog.

An earthquake measuring 6.2 magnitude occurred in Argentina Natural Disasters

An earthquake measuring 6.2 magnitude at a relatively shallow depth of focus was in the north-western Argentina. People claim that the earthquake is the strongest in recent years, although reliable information on the extent of the damage and destruction yet.

The earthquake occurred at 8.12 am local time, near the capital of the province of Jujuy and Salta at a depth of 9.5 kilometers. In San Pedro, located 63 kilometers from the epicenter, was one of the strongest recorded earthquake shocks.

Scientists: Insomnia ants can warn about earthquake

April 11, 2013. Sudden changes in the behavior of forest ants indicate that in a few hours will be an earthquake, German scientists found that three-year clock watched a few anthills.

"In the behavior of ants, for which we observed showed a steady change of phases of activity and tranquility. A few hours before the earthquake instead of sleep phase advancing surge of activity, and the following phase of the activity does not occur during the day, "- said Gabriela Berbera (Gabriele Berberich) from the University of Duisburg (Germany), who presented the first results of the experiment at the European

Scientists: Tectonic plateau in Pakistan is moving like a caterpillar

January 16. Kohat plateau in north-western Pakistan is a special geological structure that moves on the surface of another tectonic plate small, successive short steps — about the same as a caterpillar, say Indian and American geologists in an article published in the journal Nature Geoscience.

Roger Bilham (Roger Bilham) from the University of Colorado at Boulder (USA) and his colleagues believe that "tracked" nature of the movement was the cause of the mysterious plateau earthquake May 20, 1992, the force of which reached 6 on the Richter scale. To date, this event is considered the most powerful earthquake
