Kamchatka deep earthquake was the most powerful in the history of

September 20, 2013. Seismologists from the University of California found that 8.3-magnitude earthquake in the Sea of Okhotsk, occurred on May 24 of this year, was the most powerful of all known deep earthquakes. Research published papers Science, its summary can be read on the University website.

Scientists have found that seismic activity hypocenter was at a depth of 609 kilometers under the shelf of the Sea of Okhotsk. Earthquake, so no doubt be attributed to a poorly-studied class of deep, although the velocity of the fault, and some other indication it was "very similar to the surface of

The earthquake in Tuva caused the Indian tectonic plate movement

December 29. Earthquake in Tuva, including, and what happened on the night of Wednesday to be associated with the gradual movement of the Indian tectonic plate deep into Eurasia at a rate of 4.3 centimeters per year, which will go on for tens of millions of years, said RIA Novosti head of the laboratory of the Institute of Petroleum Geology and Geophysics, Ivan Kulakov.

According to him, the heterogeneous composition of collision zone — the area of the lithosphere of Asia, in which "drives" India — permanently deformed as a result of forming mountain ranges. These deformations cause mechanical stress

Romania: a series of 9 earthquake, the water in the wells reeks of sulfur

October 3, 2013. As the channel Publika, the last day in the Romanian county of Galati recorded nine earthquakes. Five occurred at night. The most powerful — a magnitude of 3.6 on the Richter scale — happened at 4:37 in the morning.

Another quake of the same magnitude was recorded at 7:37. To 10 am there were three more push.

Romanian Prime Minister Victor Ponta said that the government is ready to respond if necessary.

Over the past 11 days in Galati 19 earthquakes occurred. Romanian media write that in some localities of the county well water reeks of

Scientists: Accurate short-term earthquake prediction and efficient — really

Seismologists say that it is impossible to solve the problem of accurate determination of the three main parameters of a future earthquake. However, the reason for this in the "Platonic" approach to the genesis of earthquakes.

Seismologists tend closer to the sites of the future epicenter, but "face to face" can not see and judge correctly. Physicists who study the cosmos, astronomers, statisticians use the gravitational connection planets, but do not reach the opening mechanism of the impact of these forces on the future epicenter of the earthquake.

In the Haifa lab after a long period of research, this relationship

A series of small earthquakes recorded along the border between California and Nevada

Fig. 1

April 11. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, a lot of small earthquakes shook the border between the U.S. states of California and Nevada in the Eastern Sierra (The word "Sierra" means mountain range — annotated. Interpreter) for the last day.

The strongest of them had a magnitude of 4.2 and 4.0, and both occurred on Sunday afternoon in Hawthorne, pieces. Nevada, about 140 miles east of Sacramento. Weaker earthquakes continued Monday morning.

Reports of the possible damage and no injuries were reported there. Among the above-mentioned earthquakes also included some of the earthquake in

Is it worth the Europeans fear the devastating earthquake?

August 16. The Europeans are not very afraid of damaging earthquakes. Scientists at the German Centre for Geosciences decided to find out how justified such self-confidence, and for the first time created a catalog of earthquakes in the European region over the past thousand years. It contains a list of about 45,000 earthquakes and published in the edition of the Journal of Seismology.

Earthquakes happen at different times: in some regions of strong earthquakes occur every ten years, and in some — times a hundred. In the latter case, it may provide a false sense of security, which ultimately can

A series of earthquakes near Vanuatu

A series of earthquakes in the vicinity of Vanuatu Natural Disasters

In early February, the archipelago of Vanuatu have been several earthquakes. The first happened on January 31 and still had the power of 5.1 points and a depth of 172.5 km. February 2 was a strong earthquake in the 7.1-magnitude depth 23.1 km. It was followed by a few more: 5.3 points, the depth of 10 km, 5 points, the depth of 33.3 km, 5.5 points, depth of 22.8 km, 5.2 points, depth of 20.8 km, 5, 1 point, the depth of 31.9 km and 5.1 points, depth of

An earthquake of magnitude 5.9 occurred in Kamchatka

May 19, 2013. An earthquake of magnitude 5.9 occurred in 22.44 MSK Sunday off the east coast of Kamchatka, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The earthquake lies at a depth of 19 kilometers. The epicenter was in the Pacific Ocean, 132 km south-east of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.

Information on possible damage were reported.

According to RIA Novosti, the representative of the situational center Hydrometeorology, no tsunami threat.

In the past days off the coast of Kamchatka was registered several earthquakes of magnitude 4.7 to 4.9.

After the earthquake off the coast of Indonesia, initially estimated magnitude of 8.9, and then reduced to 8.6, more active 13 tsunami warning buoys. All of them are located at the junction of the boundaries of tectonic plates. Later, on the planet swept a series of earthquakes.

Kamchatka and Dagestan are waiting strong earthquake

May 28, 2013. Russian seismologists from the Institute of Physics of the Earth named Schmidt predict major earthquakes in the two regions of the country — in Dagestan in Makhachkala and Derbent to the south, as well as on the Kamchatka Peninsula in the area of the junction with the Aleutian arc, as well as in the south of the peninsula. In these areas, there are so-called "quiet zone" that can be activated within the next year.

Meanwhile, experts of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia this year, predicting strong earthquakes (magnitude 7.5 and greater) on Sakhalin Island (the
