Scientists explained the anomaly in the ocean causing cataclysms


It can provoke serious cataclysms which already became the reason of mass death of people. Scientists received the evidence of existence of the new abnormal gerologichesky phenomenon which contains danger of death. Writes Science Alert about it. It is about proofs of stratification of a tectonic plate on two separate layers under the ocean. This hypothetical phenomenon of division - in that degree in what experts could find it at computer modeling - can be the cause of emergence of a new zone of a subduktion where one of tectonic plates of Earth strongly moves under another. The sea geologist João Duarte from the Lisbon university in Portugal for many years studied seismic history of the hometown, and in particular - the Great Lisbon earthquake of 1755: a strong catastrophic earthquake and a tsunami which actually destroyed Lisbon therefore about 100 thousand people died. Centuries later seismologists noted much softer earthquake in 1969 in the same region, but, fortunately - without loss of human life. And still strangely the fact that these strong earthquakes in general occur as the region from which they come represents rare, the abyssal plain on a seabed near the Iberian Peninsula, far from any active tectonic faults. But far under this flat, not remarkable landscape of a seabed there is something else, Duarte says: something seismic. "that seismicity is located below seismically silent layer interpreted as the front of a serpentinization extending down through the top cloak of a lithosphere", - he noted. Serpentinization is a geological process in which stone structures absorb water, and, according to researchers, it can be the cause that the oceanic lithosphere at the coast of Portugal breaks up in two that can lead to earthquakes. Earlier it was reported that scientists recorded acceleration of thawing of glaciers in Greenland six times. News from the Correspondent.netv of Telegram.
