Last trials of youth activists

Women now detained in the street near Academy, when they pasted leaflets calling to come to Independence Square in 16 hours on July 27. Marina and Catherine accused neprelichnoy battle. According to police, the girls on the street yelling, waving their arms and expressed neprelichno. Meanwhile the tribunal Partyzanski district of Minsk Aleksei Shydlovsky brought detainees and Paul Baranowski. We also have found their leaflets and charged with disorderly conduct small. Tribunal postponed for tomorrow, July 25, at 10.00 am. Night guys spend in the clink Akrestsin Street.

FEMA: passion around contrived earthquakes?

Following the near-meltdown of a nuclear reactor in Japan last week, Washington's attention quickly shifted to its own policy of the federal government's response to emergencies. Given the failures of response of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (Hereinafter referred to FEMA — approx. Mixednews), by hurricane "Katrina", there is concern about the country's preparedness for catastrophic disasters. According to Marc Ambinder of the National Journal, «if an earthquake of magnitude 9 points occur in the Midwest," Will the United States be better equipped to answer than Japan? ".

Such a disaster is very possible, at least from the point of

In Iceland this week about a thousand earthquakes recorded

October 5, 2013. Very close to the northern coast of Iceland, about 10 km on the city Gegurta from September 25 to present seysmochuvstvitelnye instruments recorded about 1,000 individual tremors. Their depth varied from 15 km, which corresponds to the boundary of the mantle and the crust, up to several hundred meters, that is, just at the surface.

The last two were thrust magnitude 3 and 3.2 points, the rest of the mini-earthquakes were within the same magnitude or less. However, the small depth of their epicenters enabled devices easily register Occurred activity. Scientists suggest that the earthquake caused

Scientists: the Himalayas and the Pacific Northwest expects massive earthquake

Weather staff at Stanford University (Stanford University)

December 5. The study, conducted by researchers at Stanford University, focuses on the geological characteristics and activity in the Himalayas and in the Pacific Northwest.

The data obtained from the surveys, geophysics, will present at the American Geophysical Union meeting this week in San Francisco. Among the many presentations will be a few studies that relate to the prediction of a major earthquake in the Himalayas and in the Pacific Northwest.

On the 45th meeting of the Union (AGU) will meet approximately 20,000 scientists, teachers, students, administrators, dealing with the

Earthquake in Lorca caused interference with ground water

Earthquake in Lorca caused interference with ground water Scientists have shown

Examining the wealth of data on the fault, the scientists concluded that the cause of a fairly strong earthquake of 5.1 earthquake that occurred in the Spanish city in 2011, has become a frequent and improper human intervention in the bowels of the earth. Then a start killing 9 people and caused enormous damage to the city itself.

With the help of satellite images revealed the direction in which there is a movement of the soil. Researchers found the correspondence of these shifts in relatively shallow fault

In the state of Washington have discovered a new fault crust

In the state of Washington have discovered a new fault crust Facts

In the north-western Pacific Ocean are quite serious tectonic events. From the Cascadia subduction zone, where the tectonic plate of Juan de Fuca is moving under the North American plate, and to the fault zone near Seattle, where 1,100 years ago the real earthquake happened to 7, there was the risk of renewed seismic activity.

The figure shows five areas paleoseysmicheskoy activity (red circles) and three Holocene fault (solid red lines).

Approximately 60 km north of the described location and located close to the extremely dangerous fault in

Underground fault in Dimitrovgrad nuclear threat

Earthquake

22.07.11.Pervy push Dimitrovgrad felt on June 14, when the sun was setting. Ground pretty shaken.

Someone heard the explosion, someone felt the subterranean noise, and someone has described the incident as a thump. Houses are not collapsed, walls cracked, and the pipes in the ground is not broke, so do the residents of the importance of shocks did not pay.

But the June 29 aftershocks were repeated again, and almost at the same time — at sunset. Now, on the upper floors have clearly felt that the ground was shaking.

Subjectively tremors then valued at 3-5 points. In

Sometimes an earthquake can be predicted by foreshocks

After the devastating earthquake scientists by browsing the data leading up to the push, often stumble upon foreshocks.

This weaker earthquakes that occur within a few days or hours to push a moderate or large. With them is far from clear. Not all earthquakes have foreshocks, and, despite years of effort, no one was unable to find a way of predicting earthquakes based on them.

More one small step in the direction of

Scientists: Tokyo threatens massive earthquake

February 7, 2013. The active seismic fault Tachikawa, located near Tokyo, can cause in the Japanese capital powerful earthquake, much stronger than expected earlier, reported on Thursday by local scientists.

To such conclusion experts of the Institute of Seismology, University of Tokyo, which today published the results of a detailed study of the fault, ITAR-TASS reported.

Fault Tachikawa is located in the west of the prefecture Tokyo and partly to the north of the capital of the prefecture of Saitama. During the excavation, seismologists have found signs of what was happening in the past horizontal movement of tectonic plates in

Japanese earthquake in 2011 still goes around comes around

A powerful earthquake that struck the east coast of Japan in March 2011, woke faults near the dormant plant "Fukushima-1" and "Fukushima-2."

"Strong earthquakes may occur in the fault Futaba only 5-6 km from the nuclear reactor," — emphasizes Dapeng Zhao of Tohoku University. This fault runs along the coast just past the two nuclear power plants.

Group, Mr. Zhao has analyzed data for more than 6 thousand earthquakes in the
