The cubic structure

"Welcome to Iceland — last line of the pop culture!" This road sign is sorely missed on the road from the international airport in Keflavik. When you look at the harsh rocky landscape surrounding Reykjavik, Iceland — here fresh snow adjacent to the blue-black spots of lava and from the horizon against a gray winter sun rises ridge fallen asleep, but still threatening-looking volcano before that sometimes appear white clouds of steam from the fed indomitable energy land of geysers, — it is difficult to believe that this country is able to produce anything rhythmic. However, in a small

British shootings

As for the USSR "war crime" is for the British — "military necessity"

Will the English repent for Churchill? Not an idle question, for all that he did Stalin's foreign policy, and Churchill did quite the same way. Moreover, if, for example, the execution of Polish officers in Katyn quite methodically and convincingly denied by the Soviet side, the shooting of the French or the British allies of yesterday shooting them as Greek fascists ELAS in Athens and has never been disputed by anyone. On these facts the Anglo-Saxons usually silent, and when they are reminded of them, the usual

Scientists note increased volcanic activity over the past 50 years

The frequency of eruptions of volcanoes on Earth over the past half-century has increased significantly, the planet has entered a period of increased seismic and volcanic activity, said chief researcher at the Institute of Physics of the Earth named Schmidt, volcanologist Arthur Saltykovsky.

"Statistics … indicates that the last time since the middle of last century and the beginning of century, volcanic activity has increased markedly," — said the scientist during an online conference on the site of the newspaper "Moskovsky Komsomolets".

According to him, the increase in the number of eruptions can be "linked to the overall activity

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

Iceland volcano eruption in anticipation

Iceland volcano eruption in anticipation Natural Disasters

Scientists say that in one of the largest volcanoes in Iceland, Katla, will soon begin the delayed eruption. Over its history Katla eruptions have been observed two times per century. However, the last was in 1918, 93 years ago. Scientists have noted the growing tremors in Katla. Last week, one of the earthquake reached force 4 on the Richter scale, followed by decreased activity of the volcano for a while. Other earthquakes in the area of the volcano are small and do not pose a threat.

Scientists sensational statement — Iceland volcano calms down 60 years

The volcano calms down for a long time

The volcanic activity in Iceland is activated at intervals of about 50-80 years. And now is the new cycle.

Flights over the North Atlantic and the surrounding areas may be virtually ceased in the coming years, experts predict. And the explosions of the volcano Eyjafjallajökull in Iceland and the ash cloud — to become a familiar sight. The volcano woke up quietly over the last ten years. And remind yourself of the tremors. The last earthquake that triggered Eyjafjallajökull occurred at the end of May 2008. The epicenter of the earthquake

Iceland is preparing a powerful earthquake

Iceland is preparing a powerful earthquake danger zone

Residents of the northern part of. Iceland received an official warning that the region has increased the likelihood of a large earthquake. This conclusion seismologists analyzed the 20-year activity of the subsoil of the island, which is now home to nearly 320,000 people.

In a recent series of small tremors recorded at a depth of 20 km near the northern coast of Iceland one of the episodes had a magnitude of 5.6 points. Typically, these events are precursors to more serious seismic vibrations. Local residents are concerned about the upcoming

How soon will happen eruption of Katla in Iceland?

How soon will happen eruption of Katla in Iceland? Danger zone

The increased activity of the volcano Katla in July 2011 led scientists to believe that the violent eruption to occur in the near future. In early October, there was a series of powerful earthquakes in the caldera of a volcano, but the eruption has not occurred. Dutch scientist volcanologist Andy Cooper reports that it is difficult to predict when there will be major eruption since Katla seismic activity is still at a safe level. Meteorological Service of Iceland established sensor networks around the volcano, to obtain data on the

In Iceland, scientists record the earthquakes near the volcano Katla

Earthquake

6.09.11.Ryadom with the largest Icelandic volcano Katla greatly increased seismic activity. In recent days, scientists have recorded several small earthquakes, according to Associated Press.

"This is one of the most dangerous volcanoes, so we closely follow him. Earthquakes near Katla happen regularly, but quite unusual, is now a series of small earthquakes occur almost every ten minutes, "- said Pall Einarsson of the University of Iceland.

Volcanic activity around Katla started to increase in July, but has only recently reached the tremors of magnitude 3.0.

Iceland is located in the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, a high level of volcanic activity. Large
