12/06/2016 — New Earthquake progression map — Which way does the Earth really “move”?

Posted in 2016, astronomy with tags , , on December 7, 2016 by theboldcorsicanflame

December 2016

This stream is showing the past 48 hours of USGS reported earthquakes + the last 50 EMSC reported earthquakes internationally.

No voice in this video unless a large earthquake strikes.

Marker height off the globe = depth into the Earth.

The feed may show double earthquakes in some locations due to both USGS + EMSC agencies reporting the events.

When an earthquake strikes, you will hear a rumble, ding, and a bell toll. The bell will toll the number of times = to the earthquake which occurs. (example : M4.0 will ring 4 times).

The most recent earthquake has a green placemark / flag on it.

Rift in the Larsen C Ice Shelf as seen from a NASA aircraft on Nov. 10, 2016.

The breakup of the massive Larsen C Ice Shelf in Antarctica is getting closer and will eventually produce an iceberg the size of Delaware prowling the Southern Ocean, according to new NASA data.
On Friday, NASA released an astonishing new image taken by researchers flying above the ice shelf on Nov. 10 showing the crack is getting longer, deeper and wider. Scientists think it will eventually cause a large section of the shelf to break off.

It’s time for winter, the trees to be barren, and within themselves. Before that, one last moment for Autumn, when the leaves true colors shine bright.

The Great Barrier Reef is one of the natural wonders of the world, a massive wall of skeleton and rock built by tiny soft bodied polyps.

For all it’s magnificence, the underwater masterpiece has been struggling lately. Warming ocean temperatures, opportunistic herpes infections, and pollution threaten the reef daily.

Now, researchers from Australia say that the Great Barrier Reef has just endured the worst bleaching event in history, with some significant losses.

“Most of the losses in 2016 have occurred in the northern, most-pristine part of the Great Barrier Reef. This region escaped with minor damage in two earlier bleaching events in 1998 and 2002, but this time around it has been badly affected,” said Terry Hughes, Director of the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies.

The internet can be a beautiful and horrible place at the same time, and it isn’t weird to sometimes feel like you want to leave — there’s wasn’t an easy way out, until now.

Swedish developers Wille Dahlbo and Linus Unnebäck created Deseat.me, which offers a way to wipe your entire existence off the internet in a few clicks.

When logging into the website with a Google account it scans for apps and services you’ve created an account for, and creates a list of them with easy delete links.
