Stunning Map Reveals World's Earthquakes Since 1898

Stunning Map Reveals World's Earthquakes Since 1898 | Little things with great amount of love... | Scoop.it
If you've ever wondered where — and why — earthquakes happen the most, look no further than a new map, which plots more than a century's worth of nearly every recorded earthquake strong enough to at least rattle the bookshelves. The map shows earthquakes of magnitude 4.0 or greater since 1898; each is marked in a lightning-bug hue that glows brighter with increasing magnitude. The overall effect is both beautiful and arresting, revealing the silhouettes of Earth's tectonic boundaries in stark, luminous swarms of color. The map's maker, John Nelson, the user experience and mapping manager for IDV Solutions, a data visualization company, said the project offered several surprises. "First, I was surprised by the sheer amount of earthquakes that have been recorded," Nelson told OurAmazingPlanet. "It's almost like you could walk from Seattle to Wellington [New Zealand] if these things were floating in the ocean, and I wouldn't have expected that." In all, 203,186 earthquakes are marked on the map, which is current through 2003. And it reveals the story of plate tectonics itself. The long volcanic seams where Earth's crust is born appear as faint, snaking lines cutting through the world's oceans. The earthquakes along these so-called spreading centers tend to be rather mild. The best studied spreading center, called the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, bisects the Atlantic Ocean, on the right side of the image. Its Pacific counterpart wanders along the eastern edge of the Pacific Ocean, cutting a wide swath offshore of South America. Another spreading center makes a jog though the Indian Ocean and up through the Red Sea. But one glance at the map shows that the real earthquake action is elsewhere. Subduction zones, the places where tectonic plates overlap and one is forced to dive deep beneath the other and into the Earth's crushing interior — a process that generates the biggest earthquakes on the planet — stand out like a Vegas light show. Nelson said this concept hit home particularly for the Ring of Fire, the vast line of subduction zones around the northern and western edge of the Pacific Ocean. "I have a general sense of where it is, and a notion of plate tectonics, but when I first pulled the data in and started painting it in geographically, it was magnificent," Nelson said. "I was awestruck at how rigid those bands of earthquake activity really are."

Five Reasons Why People Can’t Make Money Online

Five Reasons Why People Can’t Make Money Online | Little things with great amount of love... | Scoop.it
The common statistic that gets thrown around a lot is that 95% of people fail to make money online. Check out the main reasons that it's better to avoid to follow their pitfalls.1 – Quitting Too SoonI know a number of people who have made the effort to start something online. Then at the first hurdle they stumble, fall and walk away. People don’t fail because they don’t know how to do something. They fail because they don’t figure out another way of getting that job done.2 – Picking The Wrong NicheNow there’s no such thing as a right or wrong niche. What I mean is that the niche you pick has to be right for you.So many people get into this business and go for the biggest, most lucrative niche out there. But they have zero knowledge about it and absolutely no interest in it whatsoever.3 – Thinking It Will Be Fast and EasyIt takes months to reach a stable income from online endeavors. Many people fail to realize that. Nearly every day I’ll receive an email from someone asking “How do I make money online?” What possible answer do these kinds of people expect from a question like that?4 – No PlanningA lot of people rush into Internet marketing without an action plan. They have all these ideas that they want to implement but no system to follow.5 – Information OverloadWith so much stuff available on the Internet, it’s tough to know where to start. Information is abundant, both free and paid. In truth, everything you need to know about making money online is online.by John Chow
