Is the world facing a series of volcanic and seismic events or volcanic eruption Eyyafyadlaёkyudl - a one-time occurrence and not herald of the apocalypse? "Times" cites the opinion of the expert volcanologists on these issues.
Seismology and Volcanology - one of the most complex and controversial branches of modern science. Despite the large amount of accumulated data, scientists are still far from being able to anticipate the events of seismic and volcanic activity of the Earth. Seismic events associated with solar activity, and the deviation of the Earth's orbit, and the Read more [...]
Flat Tolbachik volcano in Kamchatka first time in decades has shown seismic activity, according to RIA Novosti Senior Fellow, Institute of Volcanology and Seismology Alexey Ozerov.

September 4, 2013. Indeed, there are places on Earth where shaking constantly. They are called - seismic zones. In turn, there are places where the earthquake is a rarity. One of these areas can be called the British Isles. They are removed from the boundaries of lithospheric plates. However, and here the Earth sometimes shake people.
It happened on August 30, in the seaside town of Blackpool, located in the Western part of the country. 10:58 local time, an earthquake of a magnitude of 3.3. The tremors were felt even in quite remote Dublin. The physics of shocks in this unconventional for earthquake Read more [...]

September 16, 2013. After analyzing his \"discovery\" during the study of seismic wave propagation, when there was one of the earthquakes, scientists came to the conclusion that it is an ancient stream of magma moving beneath the earth from West to East across the continent for over 150 million years of existence the globe, and determined the depth of stay magma under the earth's crust: it is about 200 kilometers. For their study, the researchers constructed three-dimensional model of the Earth's interior under the United States and Canada, using data from seismic stations that recorded the fluctuations Read more [...]
The earthquake, which occurred on Thursday, February 10, was the strongest over the past half century near the Sayano-Shushenskaya HPP. Scientists say that the next month or two the area around the epicenter will continue to shake. For small shocks, will likely follow some three or four earthquakes, followed again smaller.
\"The release of energy during the earthquake of February 10 was simply enormous: it can compare in power with the power of a single bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 20 kilotons - leads Academ.info the words of Victor Seleznev, doctor of geological-mineralogical Sciences, Director Read more [...]
March 23,10:tie Ural state mining University does not exclude the probability of occurrence of earthquakes on the territory of the Middle Urals.
According to experts, seismic events are most likely in the area of the Beloyarsk nuclear power plant.
