Scientists discover evidence of super-fast deep earthquake

As scientists learn more about earthquakes that rupture at fault zones near the planet’s surface — and the mechanisms that trigger them — an even more intriguing earthquake mystery lies deeper in the planet.Scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego have discovered the first evidence that deep earthquakes, those breaking at more than 400 kilometers (250 miles) below Earth’s surface, can rupture much faster than ordinary earthquakes. The finding gives seismologists new clues about the forces behind deep earthquakes as well as fast-breaking earthquakes that strike near the surface.Seismologists have documented a handful of these events, in which an earthquake’s rupture travels faster than the shear waves of seismic energy that it radiates…. »

The atmospheric waves of Venus, key to understanding the superrotation of its atmosphere, deciphered

Venus’ atmosphere rotates up to sixty times faster than its surface, a phenomenon known as superrotation whose origin hast yet to be satisfactorily explained…Venus is a slowly rotating planet since it takes about two hundred and forty three terrestrial days to complete a round about itself. Its atmosphere is expected to rotate with the same rhythm as well, but in the case of Venus it takes only four days. The origin and motor of this superrotation is so far unknown, but the numerous waves present in the planet’s atmosphere may play an important role. A study has just identified the nature of these waves for the first time. “Venus is a mind bender for specialists in atmospheric dynamics. Its winds reach velocities higher than four hundred kilometers per hour, sevent… »

New lava flows observed on the Sciara del Fuoco, Stromboli volcano - Italy

Two new lava overflows occurred from the NE vent of Stromboli volcano – Aeolian Islands, Italy, last evening and this morning, July 10, 2014.Similar as during the previous episodes, the flows were the result of surges in magma supply, quickly descended the upper part of the Sciara del Fuoco, and then stopped, VolcanoDiscovery reports.Video courtesy of VolcanoDiscoveryGeologic summarySpectacular incandescent nighttime explosions at Stromboli volcano have long attracted visitors to the “Lighthouse of the Mediterranean.” Stromboli, the NE-most of the Aeolian Islands, has lent its name to the frequent mild explosive activity that has characterized its eruptions throughout much of historical time. The small, 924-m-high island of Stromboli is the emergent summit of a volcano that … »

39,000,000 Bq/liter Of Beta Radiation Found At Fukushima Daiichi

The July 9th reading for monitoring well 1-2 at the sea front had this startling reading. 39,000,000 bq/liter of beta radiation (strontium 90 and other beta emitters) found in the water samples taken.
The readings appear to possibly be adjustments or delayed reporting of data from last summer as many of the readings have August and September dates but no year clearly appears in the individual reports. Either way that new reading and many of the new beta tests published are concerningly high, much higher than TEPCO has admitted before.

Fukushima Unit 5 Reactor Temperature Rises

TEPCO’s statements earlier this week that they would use a back and forth method of cooling the spent fuel pool by sharing the reactor cooling system appears to be underway. The reactor temperature has risen 12 degrees Celsius since July 8th. Spent fuel temperature rose but fell down closer to normal over the same time frame. While these changes are not alarming they do warrant close monitoring to assure they are staying within safe ranges until the final repair is made to the main system. TEPCO has still given no repair plan or completion date for the failed valve.

TEPCO Prepares For Tropical Storm At Fukushima Daiichi

TEPCO reported to NHK that they are preparing for the incoming tropical storm. Cranes and tank weirs have been prepped for the storm. TEPCO insists they will continue working on some tasks until a warning is issued. Groundwater pumping and frozen wall work will continue until warnings are issued. Other work appears to be suspended.
