Station Institute of Applied Physics, Irkutsk State University will predict earthquakes

April 1, 2013. Irkutsk scientists test new equipment, which will help predict tremors.

On the eve of the station was lowered to the bottom of Lake Baikal.

— In the plant is high-precision electronics, which during the year will measure the electric field, to record all the data and process the signals from the sensors. The task of the station — Predict earthquakes. Such plants in the world yet, it is unique. We have developed it in conjunction with the Moscow scientists, — Said the director of the Institute of Applied Physics, Irkutsk State University Nicholas weekdays.

Russia waiting for the tsunami

December 31, 2012. According to the forecast of the Emergencies Ministry, in 2013 Russia can expect fires, floods, earthquakes and powerful eight-meter tsunami. However, the ministry believes that the next year will be quieter than the 2012-th.

A preliminary forecast of the key risks for 2013 year Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia begins with a description of seismic hazard. Expected strong earthquake in Sakhalin — just north of disaster relief, where in 2007 the powerful aftershocks have been recorded. Then the magnitude was 6.8, after which there was 100 aftershock jolts. 51 houses were damaged, 1,200 were left homeless

U.S. scientists predict a new devastating earthquake in Haiti

U.S. scientists predict recurrence of the devastating earthquake that has befallen Haiti in January 2010. This was the chief told reporters the U.S. Geological Survey seismologist William Beykan.

During the year, a group of scientists studying in European chronicles and documents from U.S. archives information about the natural disasters in Haiti. They found that after the first earthquake is usually followed by a series of other, equally devastating, every few years or decades.

For centuries, the epicenters of earthquakes located in the state capital, the city of Port-au-Prince. There was an earthquake in 2010. As a result, it has killed

Not predict, but will help

Experts, scientists can not predict the date of an earthquake or a volcanic eruption, but are able to assess their risk, and provides greater stability fragile high-tech infrastructure — aviation or nuclear power plants. Creating a strong body of experts that advise the management system becomes a priority to care about their country's future.

"There is a growing number of disasters is not, and human carelessness" On the causes of the strongest in recent years, the earthquake in Japan, threatening its implications for the Kuril Islands and Kamchatka, the possibility to

Who among us would not want to see the future? Millions of people around the world spend a lot of money by paying for services prophets and magicians. Whether the predictions come true — that is another matter, but there is a steady demand. Official science also is not standing still and trying all sorts of ways to view events await us years later. Whether humanity will learn to predict the future?

Meteorologists promise in Sochi to the end of August warm weather

Weather in Sochi before the end of August will be quite warm and rainy, according to meteorologists, but they emphasize that the development of science is not yet possible to predict the catastrophic rainfall earlier than a few hours.

"Weather in the south of the unstable, deep tropospheric trough continues to spread further south, down to Turkey. Who Sochi imposed air from the southwest, while there is a good clear weather. Snow, mainly concentrated in the east and in the center of Krasnodar region, on areas of the North Caucasus, in western Turkey, "- said the representative of the meteorologist.

Seismologists predict a repeat of a strong earthquake in Japan

Russian seismologists predict recurrence of a major earthquake and tsunami in Japan, "Interfax — The Far East."

"Possible second major boost magnitude from 7.5 to 8.5. This push can cause tsunami, so we must be prepared for this event," — quoted by Head of Laboratory Sciences Seismology Institution "Institute of Marine Geology and Geophysics", Doctor of Physics and Mathematical Sciences Ivan Tikhonov.

According to scientists, the epicenter of the quake, may be behind the deep trough about 200 km east of the epicenter megazemletryaseniya, which occurred March 11, 2011.

U.S. scientists predict recurrence of Japanese events in western North America

Seismologists from the U.S. Geological Survey have reason to predict a major earthquake, like the Japanese, in the north-western parts of the Pacific coast of the U.S.. The representative of the U.S. Geological Survey, is more likely to affect the elements of Oregon, Washington and British Columbia.

How do animals predict earthquakes

According to scientists, reptiles and amphibians feel slight changes in the chemical composition of water and soil, which occur before the shocks due to the partial destruction of rocks.In 2009, the toads were able to predict an earthquake in the Italian province of L'Aquila. (Photo forbesimages.)Every one knows the story of how the animals to their unusual behavior predicted earthquake. Especially in this sense differ groundwater, aquatic and semi-aquatic like a reptile, amphibian and fish species. One relatively recent similar cases — the mass exodus of snakes to shocks in Haychene in 1975. A month before the disaster snake
