The Earthquake That Will Devastate Seattle

The Earthquake That Will Devastate Seattle | Managing the Natural Environment | Scoop.it
When the giant fault line along the Pacific Northwest ruptures, it could be our worst natural disaster ever.

 

The Cascadia subduction zone remained hidden from us for so long because we could not see deep enough into the past. It poses a danger to us today because we have not thought deeply enough about the future. The Cascadia situation, a calamity in its own right, is also a parable for this age of ecological reckoning, and the questions it raises are ones that we all now face. How should a society respond to a looming crisis of uncertain timing but of catastrophic proportions? How can it begin to right itself when its entire infrastructure and culture developed in a way that leaves it profoundly vulnerable to natural disaster?

geographynerd's insight:

This is a long read but well worth the time. "The really big one," an earthquake in the Pacific Northwest over 8.0, last happened in 1700, but seismologists know that the geological pressure on the fault lines have been building since then.  This in not a panic-inducing article, but one reminding people that the most potent natural disasters operate on cycles much longer than our lifetimes.

Although this is a long article to read, it was very interesting. In the 1700's, "The Big One" an earthquake in the Pacific Northwest was over 8.0 magnitude. This article is not to make you panic, but to show us that we need to prepare for the future because we could not see far enough into the past. 
David Stiger's curator insight, September 12, 12:24 PM
Thanks to advancements in technology and dedicated researchers who often forgo glory and fame, Americans are now aware of another impending natural disaster that is likely to ruin the lives of so many of our fellow citizens. This article reminded me of the impending doom of climate change and the resulting ecocide. So many of us, even people who put faith in religion, trust scientific discovery enough to acknowledge that these are realities we face as a society. Not all of us are totally brainwashed to dismiss this a secular, liberal hoax. Despite this awareness, not much - if anything - is being done to address or prepare for the awaiting earthquake and tsunami. This fact affirms that the United States' population is largely out-of-touch with reality. In a fantasy world, like ours, we are too special and superior (perhaps chosen by destiny or God) to suffer such a drastic and radically dreadful experience of nature. The delusion prevents us from acting sooner, rather than later. What comes to mind is the Netherlands as they train their population and renovate their urban centers to flow with the tides of climate change. They have the knowledge (like we do) but the difference is they have embraced it and in a communal way have decided to take action. These Europeans are adapting to their situation. This sheds light on the irony of the United States; a powerful, resource rich, skilled, and highly capable country that is falling a part because of what? Greed for wealth? Selfishness? Dare-I-say foolishness? Maybe it is indifference in an age of modernity - devoid of true human connection but full of technological bliss and distraction?  Add the Cascadia subduction zone to modernity's doom list now including unsustainable wealth inequality, overextended military policies, climate change complacency/denial, mass incarceration, obesity, mass shootings, a post-fact world, and an Opioid health epidemic. These are BIG problems that need bold strokes. Simply put, many people with wealth and power do not feel a connection to their countrymen and countrywomen to allow a government - acting on behalf of the masses - to do something. And, that is a key link. Businesses seeking to make a profit do not want regulations and adaptation to interfere. The cost of addressing these problems is a potential loss of money-making as consumers modify their behavior and new policies require more funding through taxes. 

As this article relates to geography and my aforementioned class-warfare rant: the Earth is indisputably a complex planetary system that has always been totally indifferent to human wants and needs. The planet has no obligation or will to act in our best human interests. We, as a people, must respond to the planet. When it shakes, we must brace or move. In other words, we must take action or experience the consequences of inaction. Crony capitalism, excessive wealth, and a government held hostage by corporate interests which prioritize profit over people are serious hurtles. The wealthy and powerful should realize that they need US - the 90% of people that lack significant amounts of disposable income. 90% is a large chunk of civilization! There is no wealth and prosperity if there is no healthy civilization on which to build a business or exercise entrepreneurial abilities. It is time to confront greed by recognizing our collective humanity - a humanity shaped and informed by geographically determined experiences. 
Kelvis Hernandez's curator insight, September 29, 7:48 PM
An insightful and honestly, scary article. Discussing the inevitable earthquake that would devastate the pacific northwest, but not knowing when it could occur makes me never want to even visit. The Cascadia earthquake which could or more likely would send a tsunami straight into Oregon. Learning from the Seaside, Oregon superintendent that three of the four schools under his charge will go from five to fifteen feet above sea level to as much as forty-five below would shake anyone to their core. So what has the state done to remedy this? Nothing, unfortunately. With no Early-warning system, he describes how one elementary school will be trapped, as they will have no escape. With the growing ocean waters on one side and a roadless bog on the other, these students have nowhere safe to go. This reminds me of the question, would you rather know how you will die or when you will die? Waiting with no clue when the impending doom will occur until it happens is too much for me. I recommend get out now and get out quick unless the state figures out a warning system, then just get out quick.

India heatwave kills 800 as capital's roads melt

India heatwave kills 800 as capital's roads melt | Managing the Natural Environment | Scoop.it

"At least 800 people have died in a major heatwave that has swept across India, melting roads in New Delhi as temperatures neared 50 degrees Celsius (122 Fahrenheit).  Hospitals are on alert to treat victims of heatstroke and authorities advised people to stay indoors with no end in sight to the searing conditions.  In the worst-hit state of Andhra Pradesh, in the south, 551 people have died in the past week as temperatures hit 47 degrees Celsius on Monday."

Katie Kershaw's curator insight, April 5, 2:34 PM
Not to make a joke of a serious situation, but I almost cannot function when the weather hits 80 degrees and I value air conditioning as much as oxygen sometimes (I am a baby when it comes to heat).  So the fact that people in New Delhi and the surrounding areas had to deal with temperatures of 122 degrees makes me cringe and sweat just thinking about it.  This article brings up some interesting points about how sometimes the weather can reveal the shortcomings of a society.  First of all, the fact that people actually died because of heat says to me that the government was not prepared to deal with this type of crisis.  There wasn't adequate resources to give people the necessities of water and shelter when facing such high temperatures.  It seems like in this type of heat people probably cannot function as they normally can, so it seems like a system should have been better prepared to keep people indoors and hydrated.  Another flaw of the government that is revealed in this type of weather is poor infrastructure.  The article says that the electrical grids of cities are being overwhelmed by air conditioning use and wide outages were possible.  In an area with a high population and the potential of facing such extreme weather, there should be more of a priority placed on repairing and maintaining electrical grids and wiring.  The high heat also exposed that the roads weren't built to sustain this weather because it literally started melting.  This unfortunate incident in India shows that humans can control a lot these days, but the weather is still untouchable.  The best way to deal with extreme weather is to be better prepared to face it.
Zavier Lineberger's curator insight, April 24, 1:31 PM
(South Asia) India, with the second largest population in the world and a developing infrastructure, often faces heatwaves due to its climate. But recently the heat, spurred by climate change, led to hundreds of deaths. There is no doubt that there are more deaths than can be reported due to the country's largely isolated and rural populations. In this article from 2015, the temperature reached 122 Fahrenheit. The heat causes numerous urban problems, such as  power outages due to ACs and melting roads, but most deaths typically happen in poorer areas.
brielle blais's curator insight, May 1, 6:50 PM
India is facing a change in their physical geography as climate change continues to prove itself to be a real problem. The amount of energy being used to air condition homes is astounding and the government is worried of massive power outages. "India's power industry has long struggled to meet rapidly rising demand in Asia's third largest economy, with poorly maintained transmission lines and overloaded grids." Physical geography can effect the economy as well.

Summer reading, tectonic plates

Chris Costa's curator insight, November 30, 2015 9:16 AM

Geography determines human activity, and not the other way around; that has been the theme of this course, and it holds true as we look at the devastating impacts of earthquakes in the nation of Nepal. Sitting right over one of the most active plate boundaries in the world, with the Indian subcontinent being violently forced under the rest of Asia, Nepal is therefore the home of both the infamous Himalayan Mountains and numerous earthquakes, varying in severity and frequency. As violent and as costly as they are, violent earthquakes are just another part of life in Nepal, as are other natural events in other parts of the globe, and the people who call it home adjust their lives accordingly, through a variety of means. However, nothing can prepare anyone for the extremes of earth's power, and the violent earthquake that shook the nation to its very core in May has left behind a great deal of human suffering and destruction. I hope that those who lost their homes and businesses are already well along on their path to recovery, although I don't think it's possible to every truly heal from such a traumatic experience, at least not completely.

LEONARDO WILD's curator insight, May 8, 2015 10:16 AM

Crisis are a symptom that something underneath the surface of normalcy is terribly wrong ... especially when we come to realize that everything is interconnected, even politics—worldwide.

Richard Aitchison's curator insight, March 22, 11:09 AM
This is a great example of how using technology  can benefit people. In Nepal, in which they are an area where they can get many earthquakes, they used "crisis maps" to their advantage.  First off as the article state Nepal is a very difficult country to navigate and especially after the earthquake with roads being destroyed it could make it nearly impossible. With people in dire need of supplies they had to get creative. So here they used a software system called "OpenStreetMap."   It is, as described in the article, a Wikipedia for mapmakers. Basically, anyone can add to the map from an amateur to a professional map maker. By allowing everyone to help they were able to make more accurate maps and faster ways to reach someone that had a need for supplies, these became the crisis maps that they would use. Going into the future this software will continue to be important in Nepal as you can constantly edit the maps and continue to find better and more efficient ways to get to place to place. Other countries with these issues should look towards Nepal and take preemptive  action so that when a disaster does strike they will be ready and will not lose valuable  time right after a disaster. A very interesting article in which I did not previously know much about.

Joshua Mason's curator insight, April 29, 2015 11:04 AM

It's absolutely devastating what happened to Nepal. Any loss of life is a tragedy but loss of this scale is unimaginable. It's going to be a difficult rebuilding process for the Nepalese whether that's coping with the loss or physically rebuilding the nation.

 

Watching footage of shakes, what struck me the most was hundreds of year old temples crumbling. Those just aren't something you can easily rebuild. The building can eventually be replaced but the significance of it is almost lost. 

 

Those temples, like the homes in the area, were most likely not built up to a standard that could withstand earthquakes or at least earthquakes of this magnitude. It's easy to see how destruction on this scale can occur in large urban populations that were not designed to stand against such a dramatic event.

Kristin Mandsager San Bento's curator insight, May 1, 2015 3:59 PM

I've experienced earthquakes more times than I've ever felt the need.  We used to get them all the time it seemed in Japan.  My bed would role across the room.  It got to the point where I just slept through them.  If I had even felt a shake half as violent as what Nepal went through I could not even imagine the fright.  I wonder how long the India and Eurasia tectonic plates will stay on top of each other?  Or if a few more earth quakes will split the area?

First photographs emerge of new Pacific island off Tonga

First photographs emerge of new Pacific island off Tonga | Managing the Natural Environment | Scoop.it

The first photographs have emerged of a newly formed volcanic island in the Pacific Ocean after three men climbed to the peak of the land mass off the coast of Tonga. Experts believe a volcano exploded underwater and then expanded until an island formed. The island is expected to erode back into the ocean in a matter of months.

I just find this fascinating.  History is excellent to study but so is the watching history in the making.  This volcanic island formation off the coast of Tonga is a modern day phenomenon which will one day be history.  Some people predict it will erode back into the water but some others think it will be able to last longer.  Either way stuff like this is pretty cool to watch and study while it is happening before your very own eyes.

Adam Deneault's curator insight, December 14, 2015 11:20 PM

This is pretty cool that a new island is being formed, due to a volcano that erupted under water. I am sure there are many more in other places, but it is a new opportunity for life, development and travel. Although since it is new, obviously now would not be a good time because you do not want a volcano erupting on people, that would not be an ideal situation. Although, I hope to one day be able to travel to this new island to check it out. 

Zavier Lineberger's curator insight, May 3, 1:48 PM
(Oceania) It's not often we get to see the formation of a new island, but in a historical geological perspective they occur rather frequently, especially in the Pacific. The island was formed off the coast of the sovereign Polynesian state of Tonga from underwater volcanic activity in 2015 and is less than a square mile. However, some islands like this are temporary and will be eroded by the ocean. Already, the island has developed an ecosystem consisting of birds from the neighboring chain of islands, and when eroded, could provide a home for shallow water fish.

Plate Tectonics and the Formation of Central America and the Caribbean

Katie Kershaw's curator insight, February 8, 3:24 PM
The animation in this video depicts how Central America and the Caribbean’s landforms came to be.  What is interesting is that about 170 million years ago, Africa and South America were part of the same land mass and today Africa is pretty far away from South America.  This means that there are probably similar geographic features on the two continents, like rocks or soil, despite the distance between them now.  That may contribute to people being able to grow similar crops in the two areas that are oftentimes seen as so different.  The western part of South America, specifically Central America seems to have been pulled apart from North America.  This means that these two continents may share geographic features as well.  Although regions may seem like they are separated by great lengths and should be dissimilar from each other, that is not the case- as the tectonic plates are constantly shifting the way the earth’s surface looks.  It’s hard to think that the earth was ever different than it is today and how such large land masses could possibly move so far.  This animation does a good job of exemplifying the great effect that tectonic plates actually have.
Nicole Canova's curator insight, February 9, 5:36 PM
It's interesting to see how the earth's surface has changed over time.  It's also strange to see that at one point the Americas were so compact, and that Africa was attached to both North and South America.  Although these tectonic shifts take place over the course of millions of years, this video makes me wonder what the globe will look like in another million years, or another 100 million years.  I'm sure the continents will be in a new configuration as unrecognizable as they were 170 million years ago.

Earth's tectonic plates skitter about

Earth's tectonic plates skitter about | Managing the Natural Environment | Scoop.it

"Geoscientists have unveiled a computer model that maps the details of that tectonic dance in 1-million-year increments—practically a frame-by-frame recap of geologic time. It shows that the plates speed up, slow down, and move around in unexpectedly short bursts of activity. It also suggests that researchers may have to rethink what drives much of that incessant motion.  The new model shows that although plates usually creep along at an average speed of about 4 centimeters per year, some can reach much faster speeds in short sprints. For example, India, which broke off the east coast of Africa about 120 million years and is now plowing into Asia, reached speeds as high as 20 centimeters per year for a relatively brief 10 million years."

"Los geocientíficos han dado a conocer un modelo de computadora que asigna los detalles de esa danza tectónico en 1 millón de años incrementos de una recapitulación fotograma a fotograma de tiempo geológico. Esto demuestra que las placas aceleran, frenan, y se mueven alrededor de pequeños estallidos de actividad. también sugiere que los investigadores pueden tener que repensar lo que impulsa gran parte de ese movimiento incesante. El nuevo modelo muestra que, aunque por lo general se arrastran a lo largo de las placas a una velocidad media de unos 4 centímetros por año, algunos pueden alcanzar velocidades mucho más rápidas en carreras cortas. Por ejemplo, la India, que estalló frente a la costa oriental de África a unos 120 millones de años y ahora está arando en Asia, alcanza velocidades de hasta 20 centímetros por año durante un tiempo relativamente breves 10 millones años ".
