Indonesia and Sumatra drowning

The level of the Indian Ocean in the last hundred years rose to 13 cm However, it rises unevenly. Climate scientists have found out that the inhabitants of any area time to start thinking about relocation.

The fact that global warming will lead to an increase in sea level, is difficult to doubt. Many climatologists believe that the water will rise significantly before the end of the XXI century. However, exact figures are obtained by different scientists have since withdrawn them from different source data and models. For example, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change believes that the world's

In the Indian Ocean formed a rare cyclone Weather and Climate

Tropical cyclone Anais with maximum wind speed of 184 km / h, which is equivalent to the Atlantic hurricane third category of danger, appeared in the south-west Indian Ocean. In early spring, and it is this season going through the southern hemisphere of the Earth, tropical cyclones are rare, which makes the appearance of Anais anomaly. This can be compared with the sudden emergence of a powerful hurricane in April, somewhere near the Caribbean. But unlike the hurricanes of the northern hemisphere, Anais rotates clockwise.

Typically, in

Alenga tropical cyclone formed in the Indian Ocean Weather and Climate

The first tropical cyclone of the summer season was formed December 7, 2011 in the southern Indian Ocean. Formerly known as the tropical cyclone 01S, it was renamed the cyclone Alenga.

December 9 speed wind gusts reached 185 kilometers per hour. Cyclone is gaining strength as it moves in a south-easterly direction, where it should diminish with increasing vertical wind shear and decrease the temperature at the surface of the sea.

An earthquake along the ridge of Carlsberg

January 11, 2013. Carlsberg was one of the least active oceanic ridges, and many experts do not think he can ever become the location of major volcanic eruptions. It is located on the bottom of the Indian Ocean. It was believed that in such ranges, the heat will slowly go out regardless of the magma. However, judging by the situation, this belief should be reconsidered.

The area of the mountain range now shaking and trembling resemble those that occur before the eruption of the volcano on land.

The strongest earthquake seabed among those which occur now, mentioned power is

Oceans then cooled, then heated

Two million years ago the temperature the Indian and Pacific oceans has changed

Two million years ago to replace the forests in East Africa came pastures, and the number of species living there markedly increased, appeared the conditions for the emergence of the ancestors of antelopes and horses. Why? With so much influence on the climate? This question puzzled researchers from Columbia University (USA). And Professor Peter Demenokalyu probably find the answer.

In his view, were the cause of variations in ocean temperatures along the equator. They determine the present situation for precipitation. In the west equatorial Pacific

Indian Ocean: active fault increases the risk of a tsunami

February 4.It is still unknown active fault system in the Indian Ocean is between the border of Indian and Arabian plates.

French group of researchers discovered 800-kilometer-long break, he is still active and often causes massive landslides.

Therefore, the risk of earthquakes and tsunamis in the Indian Ocean should be assessed differently, geologists concluded in the journal «Earth and Planetary Science Letters».

The theory of plate tectonics, the Alfred Wegener finally from 1960 became a scientist, and the "joints" of the Earth's crust — the subject of intensive research. Today, plate boundaries, which are formed along the volcanoes and
