I think it’s fair to say 2020 has been the worst year of my life. It’s also the year that taught me to appreciate what I have because it can always get worse.
Speaking of which... #earthquake

Yup! When you've got frostbite, rubbing the ice crystals in your damaged skin can actually cause more harm than good! Always warm up slowly and gently! #myths #survivalist #prepper #WeGotThis #dontworrybeready #Tips #YouGotThis
Sorry folks, #GPS won’t always be there for you in a #disaster scenario! Remember those paper things called maps!? Keep those around with a compass. #myths #survivalist #prepper #WeGotThis #dontworrybeready #Tips #YouGotThis
Unless you’ve got a superpower that makes you immune to snake #venom, don’t suck venom. It definitely sucks. Get to a hospital instead. #myths #survivalist #prepper #WeGotThis #dontworrybeready #Tips #YouGotThis

The @USGS has issued an #earthquake forecast related to seismic activity around the Salton Sea. Forecasts give an idea of the chances of having more earthquakes within a given time period in the affected area.…
The most likely scenario is that the earthquakes will continue and then die off.

“Some moderately sized earthquakes may occur (M4.5-M5.4), which could cause localized damage. Smaller magnitude earthquakes (M3.0+) may be felt by people close to the epicenters.”
The next scenario is not as likely.

“Scenario Two (Less likely, about 19% chance): A larger earthquake (magnitude 5.5 to 6.9) could occur within the next 7 days.”

1/6 My first PhD paper is out! 🥳

Interested in understanding tectonic activity within the framework of regional climate & geomorphology? Find out how the Bogd fault affects alluvial fans & drainage network evolution in #Mongolia:…
2/6 The Bogd fault ruptured during an M8.1 #earthquake in 1957, creating strike-slip offsets up to 7 m and vertical offsets up to 5 m.
60 years later, this famous offset ridge looks almost exactly the same as it did immediately post-earthquake:
3/6 The regional geomorphology reflects a long history of repeated earthquakes, but: do alluvial fans record this tectonic activity or are they merely a product of climatic variations?

Sure, "polls aren't votes", but 15 pts down means Trump's (ym"sh) vulnerable, dries up fundraising, allows GOP electeds to contradict him publicly, allows reporters to treat him normally & not as the magician of 2016 who commands a cult of violent kooks.
To combat the complacency that the polling imbalance could bring, I suggest telling fellow anti-Trumpites that no matter how much DJT is down in November, when you vote, it will feel as good as punching him in the face with all of your strength

#TodayinHistory in 1990, 30 years ago, a violent #earthquake hits Luzon #PH w/ magnitude-7.8. It wrecked havoc in Agoo, Baguio, Cabanatuan, Dagupan & select areas in La Union. The tragic episode provided #PH w/ invaluable lessons in disaster prep. (THREAD) #kasaysayan Image
Context: At 4:26 pm, a violent earthquake shook north and central #Luzon, lasting for about a minute. The epicenter was near the town of Rizal, Nueva Ecija, and it produced a 125 km-long ground rupture that stretched from Dingalan, Aurora to Kayapa, Nueva Vizcaya. Image
The #earthquake tremors were so violent that it crumbled many buildings & roads in #Baguio, cutting it off from the rest of #PH for around 48 hrs. It was the biggest earthquake in #PH since 1976, and in northern Luzon in a century. Image

Yesterday was #NoDealMeansNoMeds day. Are you on any medication? Do you have “pre-existing conditions” facing #COVID19? Do you have pets & care about #AnimalWelfare? Do you think 60,000+ deaths are too many? @WendyNowak had this to say on Facebook. Worth taking seriously. Thread
”Today we are protesting against something which should have been picked up by mainstream media a long time ago, but those of us who rely on regular medication have always been an afterthought. #NoDealMeansNoMeds
“We're worthless according to the government. We've been promised fridges and non-existent ferries so far. That's how much they care. According to the Operation Yellowhammer report THREE QUARTERS of our medication is imported. No-deal is not just about economic downturn.

Attention subducters! 12 part THREAD on our new @VoiLA_NERC paper in @Nature, led by @Cooper_geo. TL;DR? Not all #subduction zones recycle water the same way & #LesserAntilles recycling changes in time and space [1/12]
So how did the @VoiLA_NERC team, funded by @NERCScience, use boron isotopes to show that water subducted by the #Atlantic Plate is directly linked to volcanic and earthquake activity in the #Antilles? [2/12] Title and abstract of Cooper et al (2020) paper in Nature

One of the best seismically stable hydropower project was #TarbelaDam. Bcoz due to the pressure of water & sediment load the active tectonics got suppressed. Before constructing any mega #hydropower project, pre seismic zoning mst be ensured. Rawal Dam lies above active fault 1/2
Because #WAPDA didn't bother to conduct the pre #seismic zoning and even the post Dam assessment report doesnot address the active tectonics of the capital city! The authorities still living in denial that there is no active zone in the capital city!
#KoynaDam incident was such a case where no seismic zoning was performed & an #earthquake resulted in a #Dam break with a devastating impact and casualties. Dam construction can either trigger a fault or suppress it. Local geological settings must be assessed thoroughly.
