Hoy #21mayo hablemos de #sismología.

Por estos días estamos a 60 años del 60’, aquella fecha que muchos del Centro-Sur de Chile y #geocientistas del mundo recordarán.

Un día como hoy comenzaría la secuencia sísmica más inusual registrada instrumentalmente.
¿Por qué? → #HILO Image
Pues sí, tenemos en nuestra memoria el #1, el terremoto chileno de 1960. Muchos lo llaman Valdivia, yo prefiero decirle terremoto del Centro-Sur.

Sin embargo pocos conocen que tan sólo un día antes hubo una secuencia que dejó alerta a mucha gente en el Bío Bío y la Araucanía. Image
Esta serie de sismos comenzó despertando a todos un día #21mayo a las 6:03 am con un terremoto Mw 8.1 al sur de Concepción, justo abajo de la península de Arauco.

No hay registros de sismos precursores a este evento, incluso en estaciones más lejanas. Image

On this day in 1934, the inhabitants of Tafjord and Fjora, Norway🇳🇴, have been awakened by a strange sound in the night. A few minutes later, a huge tsunami wave destroyed houses and boats and killed 40 people. Most of them will never be found. ⬇️

The culprit ? A rock avalanche of about 3 million m3, which the scar is still visible (see orange line). The generated waves (at least three) reached an altitude of 62 m above sea level (more than two blue whales 🐋!!).

I let you see the damages by yourselves with these before and after pictures taken in Fjora. The source is a website with incredible testimonies.

Feel the vibe: "Dead cats, goats and lambs are found in the bushes" 🐈🐐🐑

A 10 años del #Terremoto2010 ocurrido en el Centro de #Chile, no tan solo cambió nuestra geografía, sino que fue objeto de estudio, avance #científico y #conocimiento en #sismología de terremotos.

En conmemoración del #megaterremoto, va el ➡️ #megaHILO 🇨🇱 sobre el #27F
Aunque ... ¿Qué sabíamos antes de este terremoto? ➡️ durante dos campañas de mediciones GPS entre 1996-1999, ya se conocía q entre #Concepción-#Constitución la región estaba madura para q ocurriera un gran sismo.
¡El último había ocurrido en 1835!, el famoso terremoto de #Darwin
Así, un grupo del @Dgf_uchile mostró que en esa zona habrían movimientos de 4 cm/año hacia el Este ➡️ nos acercábamos poco a poco a Argentina.
Miren las flechas apuntando hacia la derecha, son 13 estaciones GPS que se estaban moviendo en esa dirección, hasta #Santiago se movía!

Anger at acquittals of #TEPCO execs in #Fukushima case

Judge: "scale of tsunami couldn't have been predicted, #nuclear watchdog hadn't ordered additional safety measures"

But TEPCO knew & refused (thread)

japantoday.com/category/natio…
NISA asked #Tepco to conduct a #tsunami simulation in August 2002

Tepco refused safety agency's proposal to simulate #Fukushima tsunami nine years before meltdown disaster

Japan engineers knew tsunami could overrun #Fukushima plant

Hai drnewsreader,
Indonesia beberapa kali mengalami bencana tsunami. Karena itu kita harus tahu bagaimana mewaspadai tsunami, kapan suatu kejadian berpotensi tsunami, apa yang harus dilakukan pada saat tsunami dan setelahnya

1. Tsunami adalah serangkaian gelombang besar yang dihasilkan oleh gempa bumi yang dahsyat di bawah permukaan laut atau longsoran ke dalam lautan.

#Thread #Tsunami #InfoBermanfaat
2. Tsunami dapat menghantam orang dan daerah pantai dalam hitungan menit setelah suatu gempa yang dahsyat terjadi. Masa bahaya ini dapat berlangsung selama berjam-jam setelah gempa terjadi.

The Great Alaska Earthquake occurred on March 27, 1964 and rocked the state with strong ground shaking that lasted four and a half minutes. #AlaskaEarthquake #earthquake
At M9.2, it was the 2nd largest quake ever recorded. This event also rocked the scientific community by confirming a major principle of #platetectonics with the observation that the oceanic Pacific Plate dives beneath the continental North American Plate at the Aleutian trench.
On average, #Alaska has 24,000+ measured earthquakes every year. Usually, there is at least one M7 every year. Between 1899 and 1986, eight #earthquakes of M8 or greater impacted different areas of the Aleutian subduction zone.

Subduction-zone mega-thrust #earthquakes, the most powerful earthquakes, can produce #tsunamis through a variety of structures that are missed by simple models. (THREAD)
The basic model shows rock above the convergent plate boundary being compressed and bent as it stores elastic energy. Once friction is overcome, the overriding plate slides abruptly up the fault causing the leading edge to heave seawater upward generating a #tsunami.
In 2011, the M9 #Japan #earthquake ruptured a fault area 500kms x 200kms over an interval of nearly 3 min. Surveys of sea-floor bathymetry before and after the earthquake document up to 50 m of fault displacement at near the Japan Trench.

Hi @GlenPhillips and @ToadWetSprocket! You asked me a question about #earthquakes in the PNW at one of your shows DC in Aug (that’s me in the @500womensci shirt). I’ve finally got a more complete response for you! (THREAD)
The Pacific Northwest is a region of high #earthquake risk because of megathrust earthquakes on the plate boundary, deep earthquakes within the subducting plate, and shallow crustal earthquakes.
Along the western edge of the PNW, the Juan de Fuca Plate dives beneath the margin of the North American Plate in a process called subduction. On Jan 26, 1700 a M9 earthquake ruptured the full 1,000 km length of that plate boundary.

Tengo 9 años compartiendo información financiera en twitter y 16 años viendo graficos, estudiando los mercados y nunca había visto una coyuntura tan interesante como la actual. El grafico mensual de la principal economía del planeta señala un gran punto de inflexión. #Tsunami
Esto sucede solo cada ciertas decadas en los mercados. Los elementos tecnicos señalan que vienen cambios muy profundos no solo en las economías sino en las sociedades (están pasando). Ajustes generacionales.
Esto puede ocurrir, como puede que no. Pero las señales estan en todas partes y todos los dias se refuerzan. Vamos a una recesión sincronizada de la economía global en 9 meses aproximadamente. Antes, los mercados deben descontarla con grandes ajustes

Japan has more measurable #earthquakes than any other country. This is because #Japan is wedged among four major tectonic plates. (Thread)
80% of earthquakes worldwide occur around the circum-Pacific region chiefly along the subduction-zone boundaries, known as the “Pacific Ring of Fire”, so named because of the more than 400 active volcanoes that occur there.
The earthquake and volcano belt sweeps through Japan where about 20% of worldwide measured earthquakes occur. There are more than 100,000 earthquakes recorded in Japan every year. Of those about 1,500 are strong enough for people to notice.

BREAKING: #Tsunami warning issued for parts of Alaska after severe magnitude-7 earthquake near Anchorage
wapo.st/2KIjpCs
BREAKING: Officials have canceled a tsunami warning for southern Alaska that was issued following the 7.0-magnitude earthquake.
Alaska Earthquake:
- Alaska Gov has issued a declaration of disaster following massive magnitude 7.2
- Anchorage Police says there is major infrastructure damage across the area
- #Tsunami warning is no longer in effect
Per @PMBreakingNews #AlaskaQuake

(1) #Earthquake near #Anchorage, Alaska in the last hour.

Moderately deep & strong, expect some damage, but loss of life unlikely. Magnitude is usually downgraded from initial level.

Best info source:

earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/ev…
(3) Some photos from around Anchorage that I've seen on Twitter. In New Zealand we have an earthquake of this type about once or twice a year. It is scary, but thankfully little damage is done.

#DropCoverHold is the best advice. More: ready.gov/earthquake
(4) If you feel an earthquake when you're on a beach or within a few miles of the coast, be aware of #tsunami risk.

"If it's long or strong, get gone." There is no time for warning sirens or messages.

If you don't feel it, that means any tsunami is hours away. You have time.

Small #tsunami possible, according to #Indonesia authorities.
Latest #Indonesia #quake, which struck at a depth of ~15km off the north coast of Lombok, comes a week after a M6.4 tremor that killed 14 people on the island.
