Sciences : Depuis 1700, 34 tsunamis sur les côtes françaises

Pas moins de 34 tsunamis se sont produits le long des côtes métropolitaines depuis le XVIIIe siècle dont 22 en Méditerranée, 4 en Atlantique et 8 en Manche. On en dénombre 28 en France d'outre-mer. C'est le recensement le plus complet à ce jour. Il a été réalisé par Jérôme Lambert et Monique Terrier, du Bureau des recherches géologiques et minières (BRGM). «Le catalogue va continuer à s'étoffer au cours des prochaines années», assure Jérôme Lambert, géophysicien et historien pour la circonstance. Le site où sont présentés les tsunamis est bien fait, accompagné des documents ayant permis de repérer les grosses vagues qui ont léché nos côtes.

Du raz-de-marée au tsunami Les premières recherches n'ont commencé sur le territoire français qu'après le tsunami de Sumatra en décembre 2004. Tous les 5000 ans Les choses sont complexes.

Tremblement de terre: scénario catastrophe sur la Côte d'Azur

Nous sommes le 28 juin. La Côte d'Azur française sort de sa torpeur matinale. Au laboratoire de détection et de géophysique de Bruyères-le-Châtel (Essonne), les ordinateurs s’alarment. Une secousse sismique est détectée en mer, à 2 km au sud de Menton, dans les Alpes-Maritimes. Les machines mesurent une magnitude de 6,1 sur l’échelle de Richter. ’alerte est donnée à 6 h 50 à la direction de la sécurité civile.

Ce scénario catastrophe totalement fictif a été imaginé par le Commissariat à l’énergie atomique (CEA). Halte aux Catastrophes ! Satellite Photos of Haiti Before and After the Earthquake. InShare0 The pictures and video from on-the-ground reports in Haiti following the magnitude 7 earthquake Tuesday are truly heartbreaking.

But it is difficult to imagine the full extent of the damage to that country and its capital, Port-au-Prince, in particular. These new satellite images released Wednesday by Google and GeoEye show the devastation from above, giving a new view of the severity of this disaster. We’ve posted some of the images here. Mozilla Firefox. Earthquakes Cause over 1700 Deaths in 2009 (1/8/2010 11. At least 1783 deaths worldwide resulted from earthquake activity in 2009.

Earthquakes Cause over 1700 Deaths in 2009 (1/8/2010 11

The deadliest earthquake of the year was a magnitude 7.5 event that killed approximately 1117 people in southern Sumatra, Indonesia on Sept. 30, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and confirmed by the United Nations Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). However, the number of earthquake-related fatalities in 2009 was far less than the 2008 count of over 88,000. Prim.net : Portail de la prévention des Risques Majeurs.

Earthquake Hazards Program National Earthquake Information Center - NEIC The mission of the National Earthquake Information Center (NEIC) is to determine rapidly the location and size of all destructive earthquakes worldwide and to immediately disseminate this information to concerned national and international agencies, scientists, and the general public.

National Earthquake Information Center - NEIC

The NEIC compiles and maintains an extensive, global seismic database on earthquake parameters and their effects that serves as a solid foundation for basic and applied earth science research. Fact Sheet 2006-3016: Earthquake Hazards. PAGER - Prompt Assessment of Global Earthquakes for Response. The PAGER system provides fatality and economic loss impact estimates following significant earthquakes worldwide.

PAGER - Prompt Assessment of Global Earthquakes for Response

Links to PAGER results for earthquakes occurring within the last 7 days are contained below. The earthquakes are color-coded by the higher of two impact scales - fatalities and economic losses. These impact scales are broken up into four categories. Green alerts are issued when our models estimate zero or very minimal human or economic losses. Yellow alerts are issued when our models estimate up to 100 fatalities, or up to 100 million dollars in losses.

Information on the extent of shaking will be uncertain in the minutes and hours following an earthquake and typically improves as additional sensor data and reported intensities are acquired and incorporated into models of the earthquake's source.

The film was created by the USGS Multi-Hazards Demonstration Project in cooperation with the Designmatters program at Art Center to depict the physical, social, and economic consequences of the most comprehensive earthquake scenario ever created. The film gives the viewers a sense of what will be happening and inspires them to prepare and mitigate for a faster recovery. The premise underlying the film is that design is a powerful catalyst that can bridge the divide between scientific understanding about damaging quakes, and the ability of the public to feel empowered and to change their behavior in terms of preparedness.

Location: CA, USA Date Taken: 11/6/2008. 2008 Bay Area Earthquake Probabilities. In April 2008, scientists and engineers released a new earthquake forecast for the State of California called the Uniform California Earthquake Rupture Forecast (UCERF).

2008 Bay Area Earthquake Probabilities

Compiled by USGS, Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC), and the California Geological Survey (CGS), with support from the California Earthquake Authority, it updates the earthquake forecast made for the greater San Francisco Bay Area by the 2002 Working Group for California Earthquake Probabilities. The accompanying figure shows the updated probabilities for earthquakes of magnitude 6.7 or greater in the next 30 years.
