The researchers do not rule out a powerful quake in Tokyo

The earthquake in Japan has given scientists a wealth of factual material that portends hard times residents of the region the Pacific Ring of Fire. Behavior of faults in the crust remains unpredictable, Tokyo residents may face new powerful earthquake.

The recent earthquake in Japan has again shown the weakness of science in the field of short-term prediction of seismic events. A particular difficulty was the fact that the most powerful quake occurred on the ocean floor, and sophisticated monitoring equipment installed on the ground, almost does not allow any conclusions about the offshore seismic activity. Science

Flooding of the Japanese islands inevitably

Employees of one of the laboratories of NASA calculated that the last earthquake in Japan has led to changes in the structure of the tectonic plates. According to them, one of them moved to a distance of 9 meters, and as a result formed a huge failure off the coast of Japan. Experts estimate that the failure has a length of 380 km and a width of 190 km.

Geologists have also reported that the pressure on the next tectonic plates increased. This increases the threat of new tremors in and around the capital of Japan. According to forecasts,

Earthquake. Tsunami. The tragic events in Japan through the eyes of scientists: the power events, its causes and its impact on the planet

 

Friday afternoon a massive earthquake struck Japan. Magnitude it was, according to various estimates, from 8.9 to 9.1. It should be noted that when compared with last year's energy developments devastating earthquake in Haiti, a magnitude 7.0 (read: "The disaster in the island"), using the formula M = 2/3 (lgE — 11,8), where M — the magnitude and E — the energy of the earthquake in joules, the current will be about a thousand times more powerful (1025 vs. 1022 joules). The earthquake was the strongest in the history of Japan and

In the Japanese prefecture of Tochigi felt almost 30 aftershock jolts

Twenty-seven aftershocks occurred in the Japanese prefecture of Tochigi Prefecture north of Tokyo for the next five hours after two earthquakes with a magnitude of 6.2, reported mmo Japan.

The interval between two strong earthquakes was five minutes. The epicenter was located in northern Tochigi Prefecture on the main Japanese island of Honshu. Hearth lies at a depth of 10 kilometers.

The magnitude of the strongest aftershocks jolt of 4.7, the weakest — 2.1.

Information on casualties or damage were reported. No tsunami threat. Tremors were felt in 18 prefectures, including Tokyo.

Almost two years ago, March 11, 2011,

Animals react to the approach of a major earthquake, but scientists do not always pay attention to it

It has long been known that animals feel the approach of the earthquake — are beginning to worry a wailing female looking for a safe haven for posterity. Unfortunately, this way animals react not only to the earthquake, so the biological precursors are considered by scientists only in combination with others — geological, geochemical, etc. symptoms.

Director General of the National Seismological Service Center of the Academy of Sciences of Azerbaijan Gurban Yetirmishli sure that the mass death of fish March 8 near Redondo Beach in the Bay of King Harbor in the Gulf of California (estimated number of

Japanese earthquake recorded near the spaceport

Earthquake of magnitude 5.7 occurred on Saturday at 21:58 local time (16:58 MSK) in southern Japanese archipelago. The earthquake was located near the southern part of the island tanegashima, where the country's only launch site, at a depth of about 10 kilometers.

Report emergency national meteorological office does not inform about the destruction, no tsunami risk.

Powerful tremors have been recorded in Kagoshima Prefecture, Oita, Miyazaki, Hiroshima, Ehime, Kochi and Kumamoto. Since the beginning of the current day in Japan was more than ten earthquakes with a magnitude of more than 4.

Most often, tremors were

Russian seismologists predicted Japan quake to 8.5 and the risk in Russia

Japan may soon come a new earthquake of magnitude 7.5-8.5. An earthquake can also cause tsunami. These conclusions were Sakhalin seismologists, "Interfax". According to Head of Laboratory Sciences Seismology Institution "Institute of Marine Geology and Geophysics" (IMGG), Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences Ivan Tikhonov, the epicenter of the new quake, most likely, will be located at the deep trough about 200 km east of the epicenter of the earthquake of 11 March 2011.

"There's a certain area, which now stands where there was a strong earthquake. This area is a kind of" live "somewhat independently from

Experts see the connection between earthquakes in Greece and Japan

Powerful tremors last week in Japan could be one of the causes of earthquakes in Greece, said on Friday the head of the Athens Institute of Geodynamics, Professor Konstantinos Makropoulos. "Such a huge earthquake in Japan, accelerate the appearance of faults, which are already ready to emerge. This is like a glass full to the brim, which is ready to spill," — said seismologist, quoted by the Athens News Agency. The devastating earthquake of magnitude 9.0 occurred in the northeast of Japan on March 11, triggering a tsunami height of 10 meters. According to the latest data, 11.7 thousand people

In Japan, for the night of the earthquake occurred on 4

Along the eastern coast of the Japanese island of Honshu on Wednesday night there were four earthquakes with magnitudes greater than 5. The strongest had a magnitude of 5.8, said Geophysical Survey of RAS. Epicenters of earthquakes located in the Pacific Ocean at a distance of 100 to 300 miles from the Japanese coast, tectonic upheavals recorded at a depth of 33 kilometers under the seabed, according to ITAR-TASS. Seismic activity off the east coast of Honshu island does not decay since March 11, when there was a powerful earthquake of magnitude 9.0. It created a tsunami 10 meters

New powerful 6.2-magnitude earthquake occurred in Japan

New strong earthquake of magnitude 6.2 on the accepted measurement scale in Japan occurred on Friday east of the Japanese prefecture of Miyagi, television channel NHK.

Earthquakes have been recorded at 20.36 local time (14.36 MSK). The earthquake was located at a depth of 40 kilometers below sea level.

Warning about the threat of a tsunami was not announced.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the magnitude of the earthquake was 6.4. The epicenter was located 108 kilometers north-east of the city of Sendai.
