Updated every 5 minutes, shows earthquakes around the globe from the last hour, day, and week, showing also the intensity. This was produced by the USGS Northern California Earthquake Hazards Program and coems directly from here: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/recenteqsww/catalogs/eqs7day-age.kmz
Some of the world’s most active volcanoes make up the spine of the Kamchatka Peninsula in far east Russia. Kamchatka is the northwestern edge of the Pacific “ring of fire,” where earthquakes and volcanism are caused by ongoing subduction of the Pacific oceanic plate beneath the Eurasian plate.
Earthquakes are happening around the world all the time, we just can't feel all of them. The US Geological Survey (USGS) is constantly monitoring the Earth with sensitive instruments and for some time now has offered ways of sharing their data on the web through their Earthquake Hazards Program. Last February I reported on their new Google Earth earthquake monitoring features. They have recentl...
Etna is currently undergoing one of its most vigorous eruptions in years (you can look to it with 3 live web cams.
It was triggered by a series of earthquakes on 27 October. The astronaut images, you see in the picture overlay, were taken three days later on 30 October at about 1130 GMT from an altitude of 400 km (250 miles).
The USGS Earthquake Hazards Program has compiled a database of earthquake faults in the United States which are believed to be the sources of earthquakes with magnitudes greater than 6 during the past 1,600,000 years. Detailed descriptions of many of the faults is provided via an online database linked to the fault lines in Google Earth.
The route will pass through remote areas of high intensity
earthquakes, low temperature and atmospheric pressure.
Approximately 780 km (485 mi) of the line will be laid at
an elevation of 4,500-5,000 m (14,765-16,405 ft), with the
highest point reaching 5,072 m (16,641 ft) at the Dangla
(Ch: Tanggula) Mountain pass. At elevations in excess
of 4,000 m (1...
The famous Hagia Sofia mosque in Istanbul Turkey. It was built by Constantine the Great in the 6th century, the architects were Isidore of Miletus and Anthemius of Tralles.
Hagia Sophia is one of the greatest surviving examples of Byzantine architecture. Its central dome is 31 meters in diameter and 56 meters high. It has been damaged by earthquakes in 558, 563, 989 and 1346. ...
This future railway route will pass through remote areas of high intensity earthquakes, low temperature and atmospheric pressure. Approximately 780 km (485 mi) of the line will be laid at an elevation of 4,500-5,000 m (14,765-16,405 ft), with the highest point reaching 5,072 m (16,641 ft) at the Dangla (Ch: Tanggula) Mountain pass. At elevations in excess of 4,000 m (13,124 ft), the low oxygen ...
Mjolnir Crater is a recently discovered ringed structure about 24 miles wide on the floor of the Barents Sea. It is the result of the impact, roughly 142.0 ± 2.6 million years ago (Lower Cretaceous), of a 1 -3 Km wide asteroid-like body.
Estimates indicate that the energy released in the impact could have been as high as a million megatons of TNT, resulting in immense (7.7 to 8.7 magn...
