All in all, the Trans Alaska pipeline has provided for a great number of people and has not failed to let them down. It has become a staple in Alaskan culture and in the United States economy. Though critics of the pipeline may try to spread suggestions of inevitable environmental disaster, these claims have been disproven before and will be disproven again. In the words of Lisa Murkowski, “As TAPS reaches 40 good years, we look back, and appreciate the past. And we also look forward, and set our sights on at least 40
Of the men, sixteen were killed, all of whom affected by the avalanche were Nepalis. Even if one does successfully make it up the slope, the view is no longer appealing to many, due to the large clusters of other mountaineers already up the peak.
To begin with, I choose this indigenous tribe because I don’t know nothing about Alaska and I have curiosity about the people who lived there and may be the people who still live there. Alaska is very close to the arctic glacier ocean, so its climate is one of the coldest in the world, its temperatures do not exceed 0 degrees Celsius in winter. This is one of the great difficulties that we find today in order to live there, despite this, Alaska has a population of around 20,000 people. Nowadays we have many facilities that help us adapt to different climates, we have devices and machines that make life easier, as is the case of the snowmobile to go from one place to another or the radiators to warm us when we are cold. In the past, they had a harder life
Which is why it was really affected. In addition to Sendai, other communities were also badly hit by the tsunami including Kamaishi and Miyako in Iwate, Ishinomaki, Kesennuma, and Shiogama in Miyagi, and Kitaibaraki and Hitachinaka in Ibaraki. As the floodwaters retreated back to the sea, they carried with them enormous quantities of debris, as well as thousands of victims caught in the deluge. Large stretches of land were left submerged under seawater, particularly in lower-lying
These tidal waves were in-between 150-300 feet tall, roaring across the ocean in different directions. The mega-tsunamis had such a great energy force they stirred up the oceans sea beds to a depth of forty feet - usually sitting at a depth of 430 feet. One of the mega tsunamis sped across what is now known as the Gulf of Mexico. The tidal wave ruptured sharks' teeth, rocks, sand and boulders from the seabed on its way and plunged its debris over 150 miles inland from today's coastline. The Crater Today The Chicxulub’s crater is the only crater with an intact peak ring in the world.
Which 40% of the houses, farms, livestock are destroyed during Valdivia earthquakes, also they are 1,655 people dead, 3,000 injured, 2,000,000 homeless and $550 million damage. So for the Alaska earthquake, are also known as the Great Alaskan Earthquake, the Portage Earthquake and the Good Friday Earthquake. This earthquakes is a largest earthquake that happened in North America and the second most powerful earthquake recorded in history. Which the earthquakes event are killed 131 people, and 119 people are die because of tsunami while this damage are cost $311 million in 1964
The earthquake caused widespread damage to the life and ecology. The quake also caused significant damage to the city’s infrastructure, which already had been weakened by the earlier quakes in previous months. 185 people were killed in the disaster and more were severely injured. This event was again followed by large aftershocks on 11 June 2011 and 23 December 2011 causing considerable additional
Large earthquakes such as this one usually occur at or near plate boundaries, meaning Japan is very prone to earthquakes. A series of large tsunamis also formed, adding to the damage. The tsunami caused by the Great Kanto Earthquake appeared a few minutes after the initial shock. It was 40 feet (about 12 metres) tall and added to the damage all along to the coastline, sweeping cars and pedestrians
