...second largest freshwater lake in the world in surface area. It is located in the same region as Africas Great Rift Valley System, an area of tectonic rifting and ancient volcanic activity, which is considered to be the cradle of human evolution.

GPS Could Help to Identify High Risk Zones

...associations, claimed that GPS has been used to reveal the location of a locked zone to the west of Seattle. Locked zones occur where adjacent tectonic plates appear 'locked' together as a result of the friction between them. When the plates eventually overcome the friction and break free, the release...

Tectonic Plates Colliding Can Cause Earthquakes

... Severe earthquakes can result due to tectonic plates colliding with each other, according to scientists. The researchers ...re damage can be caused // by the subduction zone. At subduction zones, one tectonic plate pushes over the other. The earth's surface is laced with about 51,000...

More Severe Earthquakes May Hit Kashmir In Future

... in the fault line in the Kashmir region, but it was unevenly distributed, and this may trigger massive earthquakes. "This meant that when (the tectonic plates) do go, they are very likely to go with a very large earthquake. Our study basically showed that there were four places that could have a magni...

Sex in the Caribbean: Environmental change drives evolutionary change -- eventually

.... Otherwise it was destined for extinction, millions of years later. Closure of the Isthmus of Panama involved a protracted sequence of volcanic and tectonic events. During the final phase, between about 4.5 and 3.5 million years ago, the Caribbean underwent a major change from a pea soup-like environment, ...
