The report also revealed the reason behind earthquake reoccurrence in the areas. The 1906 earthquake and the Lawson report indicated the importance of accurate, widespread and repeated observation of earthquakes and the faults on which the occur. This report led to understanding of earthquakes in the region. In addition, this report led to understanding of when the San Andreas is expected to experience another earthquake.
little movement from the tectonic caused big things such as earthquake, but what exactly is San Andreas Fault? San Andreas fault is major fracture of the Earth’s crust in extreme western north America (Brittanica). San Andreas fault have caused so many earthquakes in U.S.A, causing many destruction, and causing lost of lifes. Now, What made Northridge Earthquake so destructive? While the Northridge earthquake was happening Californian people couldn’t predict it (u-s-history.com).
The earthquake was caused by the Nazca plate releasing tension and descending 15 meters underneath the South American Plate. Many people had got the warning, and evacuated, but most of them stayed back to fight through the storm. This caused a 7.6 magnitude earthquake , but the worst was still
Costa Rica is such a diverse country. With an array of different ecosystems and a mixture of people with roots from all over, it is no surprise that the music has just as much diversity. Costa Rica has plenty of influences on their music: Indigenous, European, African, Western, and other Latin American countries. Therefore, music in Costa Rica stems from various genres because of the many influences from other cultures. Traditional Costa Rican music relies heavily on the indigenous, European, and African influences that are shown within Costa Rica’s own demographics.
each show is very inexpensive. The price of going to the theater once a week in Costa Rica for a year is equal to the price of going to one Broadway show. People can save a lot money this way! The theaters are also very welcoming to tourists, most of the shows are easy to understand even if a tourist cannot speak Spanish. Also, the most famous type of music in Costa Rica is classical music.
Haiti VS Haida Gwaii: A quake-to-quake comparison (WIP) Comparison 1: Geological Aspects The earthquake that shook Haiti came at a decently strong 7.0 Magnitude, and although that may not come off as anything specially devastating, the end results caused by the sole earthquake itself weren’t something that is left to be desired. The depth of the Haiti quake was 9.9 km deep, and yet again, nothing to holler about in comparison with the Haida Gwaii’s 17.5km depth of destruction.
There are a lot of unexpected thing happened to our life. The Valdivia earthquake and Alaskan earthquakes is the most strongest earthquakes that ever happen in the world and this earthquakes are giving both of the two country a very big impact to their population and economy, they also losing a lot of people, housed, money and a huge of the area that earthquakes happened got damage. By the way one of the American author, Thomas Sowell, had said that “All thing are the same except for the differences and different except for the similarities” and that it true however both of them are the top strongest earthquakes but they are some different and similarity between them. Valdivia earthquake and Alaska earthquake are happened in America.
There are many natural disasters that affect the world, for example, volcanoes. Mount St. Helens is known to be the most active volcano in the Cascade Range in Washington; effecting the people and the state. It was first recognized as a volcano in 1835! Before the eruption on May 18,1980, Mount St. Helens was a beautiful symmetrical cone, 3,000 meters above sea level. For most of the 20th century, many people viewed this mountain and recreation area as a beautiful and peaceful place, but after the volcano erupted in 1980 that view point was shattered.
Costa Rica Have you been to costa rica or learned anything about costa?Well today i will be talking about costa rica and the things I will be talking is Geography,languages,foods,customs,produce and import,and government. Costa rica has a coastlines on the caribbean sea and the pacific oceanThere is volcanos,tropical coastal plains rise mountainsMost of costa rica is mostly dominated by sierra madre and are literally fractured into valleys and ranges by violent volcanosTheir sand is white and black and there is rushing rivers and strong waterfallsThe average temperature is 74 degrees F (23 degrees C) Their languages are only two. The official language is spanish but a lot of people there speak english
The earthquake of 2010 was a 7.0 on the Richter Scale. This large earthquake caused the death of 230,000 people. This was due to poor building structure and little warning. There were too many bodies to move and so few people who were capable of moving them (due to injuries) that the bodies would just be piled up on roads and in city squares. As a result of the earthquake, a total of 10,000 children were left orphaned.
Environmentally, current natural disasters, environmental degradation dating back to the colonial era, unfavorable topography, and massive deforestation are all challenges for Haiti. (Webersik 122) Climate change in Haiti, the world 's poorest and least developed country, do cause flooding, droughts, hurricanes and other meteorological disasters. And these disasters will influence Haiti a lot in the perspective of economy, healthy problem and industrial. The reasons for me to believing so include that
Volcanoes Volcanoes are a powerful natural phenomenon, so powerful that our ancestor’s thought them to be the wrath of an angry god. They are created from the shifting crust of our earth, floating on the mantle, displaying incredible force, then going down in history, but volcanoes are like the sharks of natural disasters. Although they can kill, they also have a purpose and a beauty. This paper will be describing how volcanoes work and the impact they can have. Our Earth can be divided into three basic layers, the core, the mantle, and the crust.
Volcanic eruptions are usually preceded by a period of volcanic unrest, where there is seismic noise that indicates an early warning of a possible eruption [Amon]. Constant monitoring of volcanoes allows an advanced warning of eruptions, which in gives human populations around volcanoes time to evacuate the area. Seismic monitoring takes data from all the surrounding ground-motion and can indicate what type of activity made that disturbance [Zobin]. Since volcanic unrest has a distinct type of seismic noise, scientists are able to evaluate when a volcanic eruption will take place [Zobin].
Earthquakes are caused when rock underground suddenly breaks along a fault. This sudden release of energy causes the seismic waves that make the ground shake. When two plates are rubbing against each other, they stick a little. Most earthquakes occur along the edge of the oceanic and continental plates. Due to stress they shift and cause the earthquake.
