Re: Chile 8.3 Earthquake...................

 

listen to the wind.....

 

That too

 

and this

 

To: U.S. West Coast, Alaska, and British Columbia coastal regions

From: NOAA/NWS/West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Center

Subject: Tsunami Information Statement #2 issued 02/26/2010 at 11:52PM PST

 

A strong earthquake has occurred, but a tsunami IS NOT expected along the California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, or Alaska coast. NO tsunami warning, watch or advisory is in effect for these areas.

 

A tsunami has been generated that could potentially impact the U.S. west coast, British Columbia, and Alaska. The West Coast/Alaska Tsunami Warning Center is investigating the event to determine the level of danger. More information will be issued as it becomes available.

 

A tsunami has been observed at the following sites:

 

Location Lat. Lon. Time Amplitude

------------------------ ----- ------ ------- -----------

 

83min Talcahuano C 36.7S 73.1W 0716UTC 1.15M/3.8FT

45min Valparaiso C 33.0S 71.4W 0706UTC 1.29M/4.2FT

Juan Ferdandez C 33.617S 78.83W 0.19M/0.6FT

Time - Time of measurement.

Amp. - Tsunami amplitudes are measured relative to normal sea level. It is NOT crest-to-trough wave height. Values are given in both meters (M) and feet (FT).

 

At 10:34 PM Pacific Standard Time on February 26, an earthquake with preliminary magnitude 8.6 (REVISED FROM 8.5) occurred near the coast of central Chile . (Refer to the United States Geological Survey for official earthquake parameters.)

 

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Ewa Beach, Hawaii will issue a tsunami warning for regions near the epicenter.

 

Messages will continue to be issued hourly by the WCATWC until the event status is upgraded to a warning or advisory, or until the center has determined that the event poses no threat to the California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, and Alaska coasts. See the WCATWC web site for basic tsunami information, safety rules, and a tsunami travel time map and table. (NOTE: Travel time maps and tables indicate forecasted times only, not that a wave dangerous to the U.S. and Canadian coasts was generated.)

Re: Chile 8.3 Earthquake...................

 

If it has anything to do with this that happened yesterday then Houston we might have a problem.

 

An iceberg the size of Luxembourg that contains enough fresh water to supply a third of the world's population for a year has broken off in the Antarctic continent, with possible implications for global ocean circulation, scientists said today.

 

The iceberg, measuring about 50 miles by 25, broke away from the Mertz glacier around 2,000 miles south of Australia after being rammed by another giant iceberg known as B-9B three weeks ago, satellite images reveal. The two icebergs, which both weigh more than 700m tons, are now drifting close together about 100 miles north of Antarctica.

 

Rob Massom, a senior scientist at the Australian Antarctic Division and the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre in Hobart, Tasmania, said the location of the icebergs could affect global ocean circulation and had important implications for marine biology in the region.

 

The concern is that the massive displacement of ice would transform the composition of sea water in the area and impair the normal circulation of cold, dense water that normally supplies deep ocean currents with oxygen.

 

"Removal of this tongue of floating ice would reduce the size of that area of open water, which would slow down the rate of salinity input into the ocean and it could slow down this rate of Antarctic bottom water formation," Massom told Reuters.

 

Mario Hoppema, chemical oceanographer at the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research in Germany, said that as a result "there may be regions of the world's oceans that lose oxygen, and then of course most of the life there will die".

 

B-9B is a remnant of a 2,000-square-mile iceberg that calved in 1987, making it one of the largest icebergs recorded in Antarctica. It drifted westwards for 60 miles before becoming grounded in 1992. It has recently re-floated itself and rotated into the Mertz tongue.

 

The Mertz glacier iceberg is among the largest recorded for several years. In 2002, an iceberg about 120 miles long broke off from Antarctica's Ross ice shelf. In 2007, a iceberg roughly the size of Singapore broke off from the Pine Island glacier in west Antarctica.

Poe: Although that sucks about the 'berg, it doesn't have anything to do with pressure in the tectonic plates. Shits slide along each other constantly building up pressure. When pressure releases, plates slip back and the earth quakes.

 

Don't be this guy

Im just saying when those Bergs are gone were all fucked, i watched that documentary about the oceans currents and how its cooled by the icebergs and if that shit goes away some toxic gases will be released into the atmosphere on a Global level killing us all off pretty fast.

Maybe. But they aren't going anywhere too soon.

I dont know, i think its retardedly arrogant to think we can pump toxins into the air for a hundred or so years (give or take circulation of the combustion engine) and it wont fuck things up eventually... I mean really... its not hard to believe

 

 

I think it's fucked up to think that we, as humans, could do anything to hurt the planet

considering that it's seen far worse and we didn't even exist.

Re: Chile 8.3 Earthquake...................

 

really? you really believe we cant hurt the planet? how can you believe that and be logical? you can see the effects of how we have effected our environment... not even talking about global warming but much more simple things like how the hole in the ozone was damaged at first by CFC's, then began to heal and shrink after their removal... you really dont believe that happened? you dont believe in pollution? You dont believe pumping chemicals into the atmosphere then having them rain down on us has negative effects on the environment? Are you fucking serious?

 

 

Its not about damaging the earth, the earth will survive in one way or another... theres plenty of "living" planets that are completely inhospitable. What makes our situation relatively unique is the system of biomes.. its about ensuring the survival of our species, not just the planet...
