1. Holes in the Ground- From the end of 1980s to now a strange phenomena is
happening in some Russian forests.There are no reasonable ideas on how these
holes appear and what they are being used for
2. Africa to lose its horn- The chain of volcanoes that runs along the roughly
6,000 kilometer (3,730 mile) long East African Rift System offers further
testimony to the breaking apart of the continent. In some areas around the outer
edges of the Rift System, the Earth's crust has already cracked open, dozens of
volcanoes have formed, the best known being Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Nyiragongo.
3. Iceland Lake Disappearing Into New Crack in Earth - A large lake began to
disappear into a long fissure created by one of last summer's earthquakes.The
draining lake is an oddity even by Icelandic standards, a geologist noticed a
large gash in the landscape about 20 kilometers (13 miles) from Reykjavik and
found a fissure—about a foot wide and 400 meters (1,280 feet) long—that led
directly into Lake Kleifarvatn and disappeared beneath the water.
4. That sinking feeling: world's deltas subsiding- PARIS (AFP) – Two-thirds of
the world's major deltas, home to nearly half a billion people, are caught in
the scissors of sinking land and rising seas, according to a study published
5. Massive Crack Opens In Earth In Texas CLAUDE, TX -- Geologists said Tuesday
the crack was a joint in the earth's crust. They believe the opening is the
result of a weak point in the joint where one spot slips away from the other.
Some parts measure more than 30-feet deep and it drained what used to be a pond.
Experts say earth cracks are common but the size of the crack in Claude is not.
6. Large cracks in the ground that continue to widen-BACOLOD CITY —In Negros
Occidental in the mountainous village of Quinten Remo in Moises Padilla
town.The area has already been declared a danger zone because of large cracks in
the ground that continue to widen. The main cracks in the ground, estimated at
five kilometers long and a maximum of 750 meters wide, branches out into several
7. The Northeast is Moving South - the latest discovery of geologic creep has
surprised scientists. Parts of North America and other continents are slowly
rising due to an effect called post-glacial rebound. That much geologists knew.
But it turns out this slow recovery is also causing a very small horizontal
shift, said Eric Calais, a geophysicist at Purdue University in Indiana.
