Did you know that Japan's Earthquake left a fracture of 400 km?

German scientists in Japan found that the earthquake that struck the country last year Nippon leaving thousands dead, also caused a fracture of nearly 400 km in the crust.

Gerold Wefer, director of the Center for Marine Environmental Sciences of the German city of Bremen, said that "in addition to the fracture length, in some areas there were displacements of up to 50 kilometers to the east."

"We want to know exactly how it came to better understand how an earthquake," said Wefer, played by DPA. The German geologists spent four weeks in Japan by measuring 100,000 square kilometers of seabed and taking samples from the bottom of the pit Japanese to 7,000 meters deep.

That's where the Pacific plate is sinking beneath the Continental, which triggered the magnitude 9 earthquake and subsequent tsunami on 11 March 2011.Researchers hope the data can predict the likelihood of new high magnitude earthquakes in the region.

The Great Eastern Japan Earthquake of March 11 was of 9.0 magnitude, which created tsunami waves of up to 40.5 metros.El epicenter of the quake was at sea off the coast of Honshu, 130 km east of Sendai.

Breathtaking audio streams of the great earthquake in Japan

When about to be fulfilled a year of the earthquake that devastated Japan, a group of researchers has succeeded for the first time, convert seismic waves that were then in breathtaking audio streams.

The result is a spectacular collection of documents on which the graphs can be seen and heard at the same time. The study appears in the March / April Seismological Research Letters.

Within a few days will be a year of tragedy. On 11 March, an earthquake of magnitude 9, the fourth in intensity since 1900, shook Japan and took the lives of more than 15,000 people.

However, due to the presence in the region of thousands of seismographs (and the willingness of the Japanese authorities to share their data with the rest of the world), the Tohoku-Oki earthquake was undoubtedly the best studied and measured for all time.

This huge amount of information and data has enabled scientists to share their findings in multiple ways, some of them unique. Is the case of Zhigang Peng, associate professor of the School of Atmospheric Sciences and Earth, in Georgia, which has managed to turn the earthquake seismic waves in streaming audio.

The result allows both experts and the general public, "instead listen" sound of the earthquake as its waves were propagating through the earth's crust throughout the world.

"We were able, says Professor Peng-to give life to the earthquake data, seismic data combining visual and auditory.

People can now listen to the pitch and amplitude changes while observing a chart of seismic rate changes. The public can relate earthquake signals familiar sounds like thunder, or popcorn exploding fireworks. "

Different sounds can help explain several key aspects of the earthquake sequence, including the mainshock and aftershocks.

For example, graphics and sounds that head these lines were obtained near the coastline of Japan, between Fukushima (where was the nuclear power plant) and Tokyo. The pageantry that is heard at the beginning is the main shock of 9 magnitude.

Then, and as the plates slide rock tens of meters to new positions, there are replicas, which document the impressive popping sound like just after the mainshock. These movements of adjustment of the last plates probably full years.

As seismic waves move away from the epicenter of the earthquake and creep across the land, can cause new earthquakes even thousands of miles away.

As shown in the above recording, made from measurements taken in California, the earthquake caused subtle movements in the depths of the San Andreas fault.

In this paper, the initial noise, reminiscent of a distant storm, it is the main earthquake in Japan. Then a kind of continuous patter similar to intermittent rain reflects the small earthquakes recorded at failure.

This kind of animation not only help researchers to explain the concepts to the general public, but provide a useful tool to identify and understand seismic signals in other regions of the planet.

The human ear can hear sounds with frequencies between 20 hertz and 20 kilohertz, a range that is well above the seismic signals can be recorded by seismographs.

So Peng and his colleagues were limited to reproducing the sounds at a higher speed of the real to increase the frequency and take it to audible levels. Which also allows data to hear that last minutes, even hours, in just a few seconds.

Breaking news : Strong earthquake shakes northeastern Japan

A strong earthquake struck on Sunday the same area of ​​northeastern Japan devastated by a powerful earthquake in March, but there was no indication of further damage along the coast or in the shattered Fukushima nuclear plant, officials said.

The Japan Meteorological Agency lifted a tsunami warning for the region, after initially urged residents in the disaster zone away from the coast.

The U.S. Geological Survey estimated the magnitude of the quake at 7.0 degrees and said it occurred at a depth of 18 kilometers off the northeast coast, shortly before 10:00 local time.

The same area was hit by a powerful earthquake and tsunami in March, which caused 21,000 deaths and disappearances. The disaster of the March 11 cut power plant in Fukushima and triggered a nuclear crisis.

"It started as a slight quiver, then gradually became stronger," said Nobuyuki Midorikawa, an official of the city of Iwaki in Fukushima Prefecture.

"After living such devastation in March, the earthquake and tsunami warning made me feel that we can not lower our guard against a tsunami," said Midorikawa.

Tokyo Electric Power, which operates the plant in Fukushima, said the workers closest to the coast had been evacuated to higher ground briefly, and had already returned to work.

The company added that there was no immediate sign of damage to the plant, where it was to fix the cooling system to stabilize the reactor and radiation control. The cooling system was not disrupted by the earthquake, he said.

Tokyo Electric said it also damaged the huge barge anchored off the Fukushima nuclear plant has been used as a temporary storage of water contaminated with radiation.

The March 11 earthquake that struck the northeastern coast of Japan had a magnitude of 9.0 and triggered a tsunami that caused severe damage to the coast and reached about 14 meters in the nuclear plant in Fukushima.

The loss of electricity resulting in the Fukushima nuclear plant cooling systems turned off and causing a nuclear fusion fuel for three of the six reactors at the complex. Subsequently, hydrogen explosions radioactive material distributed over a wide area.

Nearly 80,000 residents were forced to evacuate due to radiation and the Government of Japan faced harsh criticism for his handling of the disaster.

Japan's earthquake signals to anticipate that no attention was given

Weeks or even hours before the earthquake on March 11 in Japan, there were different signals in the atmosphere above the epicenter, several theories circulating trying to explain possible causes

The devastating earthquake in Japan on March 11, one of the most serious in the history of the planet in recent decades, it could be predicted before it happened, strange phenomena occurred in the atmosphere, scientists reported recently revealed by the press.

These phenomena recorded by experts from the United States and Australia aroused keen interest to scientists of the Institute of Terrestrial Magnetism Ionosphere and (Izmir) from Russia.

A week before the earthquake, high above the epicenter of the quake zone was formed that began to warm gradually to a peak hours before people felt the first shock of the quake in northeastern Japan.

Days before the same area also increased dramatically the concentration of electrons in the ionosphere and its maximum value was recorded three days before the cataclysm, according to observations made by researchers at the Goddard Space Flight Center of NASA, in the state of Maryland.

According to Russian experts, the increase of temperature and electron concentration in the atmosphere over the territory which later became the epicenter of strong earthquakes is a valuable signal to understand the nature of earthquakes.

Russian scientists believe that these and other phenomena prior to earthquakes, are a complex algorithm which will identify appropriate interpretation on exactly when and where they can produce high-magnitude earthquakes.

The global warming is emerging as an important signal from satellites for NASA also obtained information on global warming on the city of Puerto Principe days before the devastating earthquake occurred in Haiti in January 2010.

The track on global warming regained interest because studies by experts IZMIRAN recorded a significant increase in the concentration of free electrons and heating of the atmosphere above the territory of India, days before it happened in the earthquake that left over 7,000 dead Gujarat state in the Northeast in January 2001.

Russian center records also found that the same phenomenon occurred in Mexico before the earthquake of a magnitude of 7, 6 on Richter scale in western and central China in 2003.

IZMIRAN According to experts, the chain, Gujarat-Mexico-Haiti, Japan, and is a circumstance that deserves detailed investigation.

Such studies should be compared with other theories such as the influence of solar activity and geomagnetic field disturbances, as early signals to earthquakes.

One hypothesis to explain the warming of the atmosphere indicates that the processes taking place in the basement of kilometers deep influence on the atmosphere and ionosphere.

More precisely this influence is conditioned by the emission of radon gas, radioactive chemical element.

These gases ionize the air, strongly catalyzes the condensation of water vapor, which in turn heat deliberate, later recorded by satellites.

Another theory dismisses the action of radon, and believes that the accumulation of energy in the tectonic plates causes earthquakes before the deliberation of ionizing fluxes in the atmosphere.

However, data on the observations collected by NASA on global warming warned other scientists and news media in Russia argue that the natural disaster occurred in Japan was the work of human intellect.

According to the media, the heating of the ionosphere are not signs of earthquakes but are the direct cause that produces them.

In this regard, the sources cited by "weather warfare", more exactly, the famous center HAARP facilities built with the help of the Pentagon in the territory of Alaska to affect the ionosphere, including through heating.

Japan Aftershocks Could Last a Year

The president of the Association of Geologists of Spain, Luis Suarez, warned they may have aftershocks place in Japan for a year, although that is "good" since the ground energy is released in a controlled and it avoids earthquake of magnitude higher.

This expert told EFE that the Japan earthquake of 8.8 magnitude on the Richter scale open has released an energy equivalent to 200 million tons TNT, so she considers it "one of the most destructive in history" .

It also warned of the risk of tsunamis that could be built and "reach the coast of Chile", and fires resulting from earthquakes "especially in nuclear power plants' cooling systems which are off.

According to this source, the earthquake has occurred in Japan "the most intense seismic area of ​​the Earth", a region known as the "Ring of Fire" where they contact the Eurasian Plate and the Pacific.

In this regard, Smith recalled that 20 percent of earthquakes with a magnitude greater than 6 degrees on the Richter scale occurring in Japan, although the west coast of the Americas, especially California and Chile, are also high risk areas of having a magnitude greater than 8 degrees.

The president of the Association of Geologists noted that the experts can predict where an earthquake will occur, but not when, so that stressed the importance of "extreme anti-seismic regulations of the countries to be built on pillars, foundations and armor sandwich avoid building collapse. "

In this sense, Smith joined the praise for anti-seismic measures that exist in Japan because in his opinion, "an earthquake of this kind anywhere else would be much more destructive."
