July 2, 2013. An earthquake biggest load assumes a region located near the epicenter, and sometimes a push, you can register and at a great distance. But seismic waves emitted by an earthquake, in fact diverge around the world several times and bend around the globe, turning the planet into a large bell ringing. The stronger the earthquake, the louder he "calls." A earthquake magnitude 9.0, which occurred off the coast of Japan March 11, 2011, was a very, very powerful.

Seismometers are

Japanese earthquake prompted Antarctic glacier

The earthquake that struck Japan on March 11, for a moment, will accelerate the movement of the Antarctic ice. Surface seismic waves have passed over the world and pushed the ice stream in West Antarctica Uillansa, forcing him to move about half a meter. Fortunately, this did not lead to its destabilization.

The event was marked by Jake Walter of the University of California at Santa Cruz (USA) and his colleagues, who conducted a constant remote monitoring of glaciers. According to them, they

Hurricane Sandy has caused a mini-earthquake — April 22, 2013 — OUR PLANETA.Novosti Ecology — Ecology Our planeta.Novosti

October 30, 2012 on the east coast of America has come a powerful tropical cyclone which caused a lot of damage and casualties.

But a hurricane can cause not only terrestrial disasters, because of "Sandy" started to vibrate the earth's crust. Despite the fact that the main damage occurred exclusively in the eastern part of the continent, vibration and walked to the west coast, where they were able to detect the seismometers. Scientists are studying the readings to trace the subsequent fate of the storm, as well as to find out whether climate change might
