What is up with these recent earthquakes? by xxx4rM3nxxx Q: Is it just me or has it been a little wierd that all of a sudden a lot of earthquakes have been occuring lately. Some are deadly such as the one in China today but some are harmless like the one in California. Is there a logical explanation behind this, i know of tectonic plates and all that but why so many now?

A: The core is heating up.

Recent Earthquakes: Has the Great Power of the Earth shown Global Warming students, man is no match in control? by Banker Q: no match in controlling Mother Earth? The power we have seen in Haiti and Japan and now Chili, released by the earth in a small area but felt around the world. Is this a good example of just how infinitesimal mankind's influence on the earth is? Build a windmill, yes but don't pretend it is because 'WE' are saving the Earth. Do the recent Earthquakes provide us with proof of just how little control we have of this Earth?

A: Yes, the natural phenomenon of earthquakes, hurricanes and tornadoes should be a reminder of how insignificant people really are in the grand scheme of things. We shouldn't be so arrogant as to believe that we have any control over the forces of nature. The only thing we can do is to try to be good stewards of the environment over which we do have control.

What do all the recent earthquakes mean for the geology of the areas effected? by tye-dye hippie chick Q: Major earthquakes have hit Haiti, then Chile, and now on the west coast. Does this mean we are in for a major shift in the tectonic plates that we are sitting on? What will that mean for the rest of the planet? How will the shapes of our continents be affected?

A: Trust me im muslum and in the quran it says when there is a lot of earthquakes and hurricanes and when the Jews (I mean zionists) destroy al-aqsa mosque jesus and iman mahdi will come and kill zionists and after that there will be peace for 300 years then judgment. and the zionists are about to destroy the al-aqsa mosque so get ready to meet Jesus lol

What do the recent earthquakes mean for us? by CraftyGirl Q: With there now being 5 earthquakes to hit within about a weeks time, what does that mean for us? Is this some sort of sign? Should we be worried about more earthquakes in the coming days? Not trying to get all paranoid here, but its worrying me. I've never heard of earthquake activity like this before, just one after another. It makes me wonder if something is wrong. And I also wonder, since these earthquakes are happening along this fault line, if something can happen around that fault line, like for instance, something splitting in two?

A: It's nothing unusual. After a big quake there's always a bunch of smaller ones by which the Earth (i.e. its tectonic plates) settles down. Look at the link below and you'll see that in the last month, almost all the quakes occurred along the fault lines, and the rest of them occurred around volcanic mountains. The Earth core is constantly moving and it's been happening for tens of millions of years, it's just that it's moving a little more obviously in the last several days. Nothing to be really worried about (unless you live near an active fault line) :)

where and when are the most recent earthquakes? by Justarock Q: where and when are the most recent earthquakes? is it true that taiwan just had an earthquake today? and what places of the world is due or over due for a new earthquke?

A: Yeah Taiwan had an earthquake today. The west coast is over due for a big one. I think the Oregon or Washington coast are more likely than California to have a large one, since Cali has so many little ones all the time.

What are some recent earthquakes with a magnetude greater than 5.0? by crosscountrygirl Q: I am doing a project fo science. I have to find 10 recent earthquakes with a magnitude greater than5.0 on the Richter scale. Then I have to compile my fidings in a table that includes the epicenter and the magnitude of the quake, the damage it caused, and any other interesting information about the quake. Please help me find earthquakes and a place to make a table.

A: These are the largest and most recent that I found ( for a complete list go to http://earthquakes.usgs.gov ) 6.8 West of the Macquarie Islands on 1/30/07 @ 4:54 a.m. 6.6 Maug islands reg. northern marina islands on 1/30/07 @ 9:37pm 6.5 kermadec islands, new zealand on 1/31/07 @ 3:15 a.m. 6.2 Cuba on 1/31/07 @ 9:46 a.m. 5.7 Molucca sea on 2/01/07 @ 10:43 a.m. 5.7 Tonga on 2/05/07 @ 9:56 a.m. 5.6 Tonga on 2/05/07 @ 10:16 a.m. 5.2 Tonga on 2/05/07 @ 10:19 the website I listed above includes the Lat and Lon of the epicenters location.

Do you think these recent Earthquakes are leading up to 2012? by John Q: I know a lot about the 2012 doomsday prophecies but do you think with all the recent happenings and massive Earthquakes could be leading up to 2012? I believe some have said that you will start seeing more and more disasters as the time gets closer? Could this possibly be true? And the whole thing about it lining up in the middle of the milky way even possible and cause cataclysmic occurrences?

A: No, and there were NO 2012 prophecies. These were all invented by a bunch of dingbats and scam artists to separate you from your money. 2012 has no greater chance of being the end of the world than any year randomly chosen year. It was a convenient choice for the hoaxers after their 2003 doomsday failed to occur on schedule. The number and intensity of earthquakes is not increasing. Our ability to detect them is greatly increasing. They are also being reported by the news media more rapidly and covered more widely. Earthquakes of the magnitude of the Haiti and Chile quakes happen on the average 2 to 3 times per year. It is just coincidence that these two occurred closely together. "The USGS estimates that several million earthquakes occur in the world each year. Many go undetected because they hit remote areas or have very small magnitudes. The NEIC now locates about 50 earthquakes each day, or about 20,000 a year. As more and more seismographs are installed in the world, more earthquakes can be and have been located. However, the number of large earthquakes (magnitude 6.0 and greater) has stayed relatively constant. A partial explanation may lie in the fact that in the last twenty years, we have definitely had an increase in the number of earthquakes we have been able to locate each year. This is because of the tremendous increase in the number of seismograph stations in the world and the many improvements in global communications. In 1931, there were about 350 stations operating in the world; today, there are more than 8,000 stations and the data now comes in rapidly from these stations by electronic mail, internet and satellite. This increase in the number of stations and the more timely receipt of data has allowed us and other seismological centers to locate earthquakes more rapidly and to locate many small earthquakes which were undetected in earlier years. The NEIC now locates about 20,000 earthquakes each year or approximately 50 per day. Also, because of the improvements in communications and the increased interest in the environment and natural disasters, the public now learns about more earthquakes. According to long-term records (since about 1900), we expect about 17 major earthquakes (7.0 - 7.9) and one great earthquake (8.0 or above) in any given year."

Are the recent earthquakes caused by global warming? by Phil Mirzoev Q: Apparently, lately we've had a very high - probably abnormally high - number of very powerful earthquakes around the globe (Peru, Japan, New Zealand, Turkey etc etc) in a very short period of time. As is known from geological history (warming periods) the rapid melting of ice shields and glaciers redistribute the weigh pressure on the earth crust and can slightly influence tectonics. So my question is: are there scientifically reasonable grounds to assume that the recent wave of deadly earthquakes has something to do with the melting glaciers and, hence, with the Global Warming? Thanks for you answers and opinions.

A: "Apparently, lately we've had a very high number of powerful earthquakes" - no, we haven't. The number and intensity of earthquakes around the world hasn't increased lately - all that's happened is people hear about them due to instant and ongoing news coverage. While rapid melting of ice shields and glaciers could cause some increased LOCAL geologic activity, there is no evidence that enough ice is melting fast enough right now to influence earthquakes. The recent wave of deadly earthquakes is simply perception, NOT reality. http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eqarchives/year/eqstats.php

What are some websites that can give me the names of recent earthquakes and their faults? by Asphalt 24/7 Q: I have a science project, and I have to search up recent major earthquakes. But I also have to find the name of their fault. Can you give me the links to some websites please?

A: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/

...recent earthquakes...? by Paulina Q: how come there's been a lot of earthquakes recently? and they are above magnitude 5?

According to the USGS website we expect that earthquakes will occur in the following frequency: Magnitude -- No/Year-- Examples 8 and higher ---1 --------Chile 2010 (8.8), Chile 1960 (9.5), Alaska 1964 (9.2) 7 - 7.9 ----------17-------- Haiti 2010 (7.0) 6 - 6.9 ---------134 5 - 5.9 --------1319 4 - 4.9 --------13,000 3 - 3.9 ------130,000 -----Illinois 2010 2 - 2.9 -----1,300,000
