Japanese disaster predicted 14 years ago

The devastating earthquake in Japan in 1997 predicted the Russian scientists, who published an article in the journal "Proceedings of the UNESCO Club of professor." This was told RIA "Novosti" Doctor of Geological and Mineralogical Sciences, Head of the Laboratory of Regional Geology and Tectonophysics of the Pacific Institute, FEB RAS Valery Abramov.

"We predicted that in 2011, in the Kanto region will force a series of aftershocks ten points or more. This part of the country was the most heavily damaged," — said Abramov, showing to support his magazine in 1997 with the corresponding article.

Japan faces a new strong earthquake, says scientist

New strong earthquake could happen in Japan because of the weakness of aftershocks, said head of the laboratory of continental seismicity and seismic hazard prediction of the Institute of Earth Physics Alexei Zavyalov.

9.0-magnitude earthquake occurred in Japan on March 11, it caused a tsunami ten meters.

The epicenter was located 373 kilometers northeast of Tokyo, his focus lies at a depth of 24 kilometers. Soon, in the same area several more powerful aftershocks above magnitude 6.0.

Scientist linked the mass death of fish to the earthquake in Japan

Mass death of fish off the coast of California was a harbinger of the earthquake in Japan, said the doctor of physical and mathematical sciences, Director of Scientific Center of Seismology at the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Azerbaijan, Ikram Kerimov."Before the devastating earthquake in Japan marked the mass death of sardines off the coast of California, and stranded marine animals. Such mass mortality of marine life caused by earthquakes occurring marine or processes for their preparation, "- wrote Azerbaijani scientist in an open letter to the Embassy of Japan in Azerbaijan.

Fault in central Arkansas more than previously thought

March 9. Little Rock, Arkansas. Geologists believe that the fault in central Arkansas, where over the past few months have been recorded hundreds of earthquakes, in fact longer and potentially more dangerous than originally thought.

Scholars have suggested that the length of the fault is 5.9 km, but now they agree on the figures 9,7-12,1 km.

Osbruks Scott, head of geohazards of the Arkansas Geological Survey, told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, the length in this case is crucial, because a longer fault could trigger a more powerful earthquake.

Over the last 6 months in the area there were more than
