Scientists have deduced the dependence: the higher the sea level, the lower the volcanic activity on Earth.
An earthquake is one of the most devastating natural disasters. Even if you have never encountered it, you probably know about its manifestations and consequences. An earthquake is an aftershock that knocks books off shelves, shakes trees, and sometimes even destroys entire buildings. But what if it starts right below you while you're on a plane? Will the tremors reach the plane, and will you somehow feel the seismic waves?
Chinese scientists have found out that the movement of continents became a global phenomenon far from immediately after the first manifestation of the tectonic features of the earth's crust, but coincided with another significant event.
It often seems to us that we live in a world about which we know almost everything. The sky is blue, the grass is green, and there are only six continents on the planet. However, a new study suggests that another continent is emerging on Earth in the Indian Ocean.
Where did such a massive body as the Moon come from near our planet, why it and the Earth have such orbital parameters, as well as the composition of rocks explains the hypothesis of a giant collision. Approximately 4.5 billion years ago, another protoplanet the size of Mars crashed into the embryo of the Earth: the video shows a simulation of this process.
In 2018, an international team of scientists led by the British Antarctic Community (BAS) found that not only global warming due to harmful human activity is to blame for the melting of Antarctica's glaciers, but something else.
Ice-VII is usually found in space, but it practically does not exist on Earth.
