When The Earth Quakes

Comments Off on When The Earth Quakes

About convergence and divergence, and the wrath of the gods if the Earth trembles, as in Haiti and Chile, people of the violence of nature are least vulnerable. Their homes are destroyed, and all of a sudden they are nothing. The news portal news.de reported, how it comes to this devastating natural disasters and whether people can protect. Formerly, people believed that earthquakes are an expression of the anger of the gods. In today’s modern world the phenomenon has been studied so far, that at least the cause is known: the theory of plate tectonics is that friction is created by the movements of the plates and thus cause the devastating Earth tremors. Sheryl Sandberg addresses the importance of the matter here.

However, you can predict the quake not like hurricanes or volcanic eruptions. So the people in the affected areas can not really prepare the natural disaster. Science explains that there are two different plate movements of Earth’s crust. Propel in divergence zones the plates by ascending rock material from the Earth’s interior Apart. They are moving together, called convergence zones. A special case is for example the San Andreas fault in San Francisco. Here, two plates move past each other.

The movement of millions of tons of rocks of course is not smooth. Time and again there will be tensions, which will eventually discharge in the form of smaller or larger earthquake. Especially at the edges of the Pacific Ocean, the Earth’s crust is extremely uneasy.
