Earthquakes and climate change - is there a correlation?

The earth is changing. Those interested in understanding what role topography and climate change play with respect to earthquakes and other changes can learn more by reading innovations-report.

Climate change is receiving a lot of attention in the media. What causes climate change? Is climate change a natural process or is it created by man? What can be done to tackle climate change and how does the topography of the earth change as a result of climate change? These and many other questions are the focus of research activities by numerous scientists who are studying the effects of earthquakes, climate change and topography . The earth is not only our domicile. It also provides all of the resources we need. These resources can be negatively impacted by climate change and a changing topography however. Limiting or even impeding the impact of climate change are medium and long term goals of research in this area.

Sensing earthquakes around the world

The aim of earthquake and topography research is the implementation of new technologies that can predict the occurrence of such earthquakes, particularly severe earthquakes that can have immense consequences. Those interested can read the latest reports and news on the subject of earthquakes and topography to better understand how much progress is being made in the area of earthquake and topography research and why earthquakes and tremors can be measured not only locally, but also on the other side of the globe. While earthquakes can be a consequence of the topography, in turn they can also have an impact on the topography itself. innovations-report contains a wide range of insightful articles on the subject of earthquakes and topography that can also help one understand the interactions between earthquakes and topography.

The probability of earthquakes appears to be increasing, and with it changes to the earth's topography. innovations-report continuously publishes new information in the form of reports that cover issues such as whether climate change might play a role or if these are incidents that can't be controlled by man, or whether an early-warning detection system for earthquakes based on topology monitoring is really feasible to allow authorities to warn the public not only minutes, but hours or even days in advance.

From climate change to disaster?

Apart from earthquakes and topography, the subject of climate change and its impact on flora, fauna, man and the earth's topography are the focus of research activities and public discourse. Scientists and researchers are gathering at numerous international conferences to discuss the issue of impeding or limiting climate change in order to safeguard existing habitats and the earth's topography. While some experts are preaching that climate change is uncontainable, others assume that climate change is a natural cycle. Still others are calling for the industrial nations to immediately capitulate with respect to CO2 emissions as a means to contain climate change. innovations-reports offers readers various viewpoints with respect to climate change and its impact on the environment. innovations-report also continuously publishes new opinions from researchers and scientists on the subject of climate change, as well as findings from the fields of earthquake and topography research.

Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

How reliable are shells as climate archives?

Calcite shells of marine organisms such as scallops or clams provide an important archive for the climate reconstructions in previous ages. Climate studies increasingly also use the shell material thrown away near settlements by humans in prehistoric times. Geologist Peter Müller from the Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research (ZMT) has now discovered a considerable potential for error when shells that have been heated for human consumption are used in paleoclimatic studies. His study has just been published in the journal “Scientific Reports”.

What will our climate be like in future? Climate studies from times gone by can help scientists to answer this question. A tried and tested paleoclimatic...

Mid- and high-latitude northern hemisphere continues to absorb atmospheric carbon dioxide

The land vegetation and the oceans in Northern extratropical latitudes absorb from the atmosphere about a quarter of the CO₂ which is emitted from anthropogenic sources. International carbon cycle experts met at the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry in Jena to discuss the scientific background of this process, its stability, new developments and future trends during a 3-day symposium in honor of Prof. Martin Heimann’s retirement as Max Planck director.

Only about 45% of the anthropogenic CO₂ emissions from the burning of coal, oil and gas and from deforestation accumulate in the atmosphere, while the...

A climate archive on Corsica

A team of physical geographers and hydrogeologists at Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) have submitted a successful application for follow-up funding to the DFG for an innovative research project on climate change that is based on the island of Corsica. They have been awarded 1 million euros to cover personnel and material costs. In order to be able to analyse the sensitivity of past and future climate changes to carbon dioxide and other factors that influence the climate, ‘CorsicArchive’ combines investigations into the aspects of tree ecology, hydrology and climatology on Corsica – in terms of approach and scientific concept, this is something completely new.

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing mankind.The Mediterranean itself is one of the regions that are showing the clearest signs of being...
