The Caracas-La Guaira highway, the only path to the main port and airport in the country, is threatened specifically in the first four kilometers due to displacement of a land mass product of the fault line that has worsened in the last four months, to the point that
Seismic activity is tearing Africa apart. The African and Arabian plates meet in the remote Afar desert of Northern Ethiopia and have been going through a rifting process—at a speed of less than 1 inch per year—for the past 30 million years. This rifting formed the
The 9.0-magnitude earthquake that rocked Japan on Friday (March 11) and sent a tsunami travelling across the Pacific Ocean had another long-range effect: It momentarily caused a glacier in Antarctica to speed its flow, researchers have said.The Whillans glacier,
Last week’s devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan has actually moved the island (for 2,4meters) closer to the United States and shifted the planet’s axis. The quake caused a rift 15 miles below the sea floor that stretched 186 miles long and 93 miles wide.
A growing number of scientists are starting to worry the magnetic pole shift, that seems to be underway, is the real culprit behind climate change. Not man made air pollution, not the Sun, not the underground volcanic activity heating up the oceans, but the slow beginni
Before Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull volcano blew its top in April, spewing thick clouds of ash, the earth around it had already started rumbling, and geologists began warning about an impending eruption.
The close geological connection is rooted in the
The latest figures on the earthquake that struck Japan on Friday suggest that, despite all the headlines, it was actually surprisingly small.That is, the area of fault that ruptured was small – somewhere between 300 and 400 kilometres long. By comparison, the
As tsunami waves travel across ocean basins they are only inches high, but extend down to the ocean floor (unlike traditional waves which are only surface features). As the tsunami waves approaches the coast, the shallowing ocean floor pushes the water mass upwards.
A new geology theory featuring impact-powered rapid continental drift as an alternative to plate tectonics. The key to creation geology.In “Beyond Plate Tectonics: ‘Plate Dynamics'” author Richard Moody, Jr. tweaks the systematics of orthodox plate tectonics while
The powerful earthquake that unleashed a devastating tsunami Friday appears to have moved the main island of Japan by 8 feet (2.4 meters) and shifted the Earth on its axis.”At this point, we know that one GPS station moved (8 feet), and we have seen a map from GSI
