Historical Earthquake Data

Historical Earthquake Data | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it
This map of all the world's recorded earthquakes between 1898 and 2003 is stunning. As you might expect, it also creates a brilliant outline of the plates of the Earth's crust—especially the infamous "Ring of Fire" around the Pacific Plate.

 

The plate boundaries are amazingly vivid in this geovisualization of the all the earthquakes over  a 105 year span.  How did scientist orginally come up with the theory of plate tectonics?  How did spatial thinking and mapping play a role in that scientific endeavor?

Researchers conclude that climate change led to collapse of ancient Indus civilization | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it
A new study combining the latest archaeological evidence with state-of-the-art geoscience technologies provides evidence that climate change was a key ingredient in the collapse of the great Indus or Harappan Civilization almost 4000 years ago.

How to turn caves into giant batteries

How to turn caves into giant batteries | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it
How do we build a world that's less dependent on fossil fuels? One solution is right under your feet. Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) is a very boring name for a very awesome system that turns the Earth itself into a giant battery.

[VIDEO] Earth's Magnetism

In order to illustrate the earth's magnetic field, three datasets for Earth's Magnetism have been created. All of these datasets show the changes in the magnetic field from 1590 - 2010. The first dataset shows the magnetic field lines at the surface of the Earth. The magnetic poles are indicated by stars. The blue lines show where the magnetic field dips into the Earth and the red lines show where the magnetic field emerges from the Earth. Where the field lines are horizontal to the Earth, between the red and blue lines, is the magnetic equator shaded yellow.

Τι θα γινόταν αν δεν υπήρχαν εποχές;

Τι θα γινόταν αν δεν υπήρχαν εποχές; | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

Όταν ένας πλανήτης στο μέγεθος του Άρη συγκρούστηκε με τη Γη πριν 4,5 δισεκατομμύρια χρόνια, εκτόξευσε από τη Γη ένα κομμάτι που θα γινόταν το φεγγάρι μας. Επίσης, έστρεψε λίγο τη Γη προς το πλάι, έτσι ώστε ο πλανήτης μας να περιφέρεται γύρω από τον ήλιο με μια μικρή κλίση. Αυτές ήταν ασφαλώς δύο τεράστιες αλλαγές. Σήμερα, κατά τη διάρκεια του έτους, η ποσότητα του φωτός του ήλιου που χτυπά τα δύο ημισφαίρια του πλανήτη μας μεταβάλλεται, καθώς αυτά κάνουν μικρές ταλαντεύσεις μπρος και πίσω – πρώτα το νότιο ημισφαίριο κλίνει προς τον ήλιο, και μετά το βόρειο. Κι αυτός ο κύκλος οδηγεί στην εποχική διακύμανση της Γης.
