Tsunami Tsupport

Written by Gary Whittaker

Inrepparttar wake of what can be arguably calledrepparttar 110083 world's greatest act of God inrepparttar 110084 new millenium, we have also been witness to what can be equally argued asrepparttar 110085 world's greatest act of charity asrepparttar 110086 United Nations have received over 4 Billion dollars of aid meant for Southeast Asia. With so much money to counter in even greater need, one thing we must learn from this is what to do next time. The tragedy continues to escalate, and what can be more tragic now, with aid so close away, it can't even get to most ofrepparttar 110087 people that need it. Canada must be commended for it's deployment ofrepparttar 110088 DART team. DART (Disaster Assistance Response Team) is comprised of 43 person medical team, and has a water purification equipment. While they are not equiped to handle major trauma or surgical needs, they can treat secondary ailments relating to unsanitary conditions. However,repparttar 110089 DART team, like most ofrepparttar 110090 assistance sent byrepparttar 110091 world's nations, cannot even reach torepparttar 110092 people sincerepparttar 110093 roads are still blocked. The idea behindrepparttar 110094 DART team is what is important. There is no reason why other countries work together and create other DART teams, that can both enhancerepparttar 110095 one Canada has, or focus on other potential problem areas. Measures must be taken that are common for most disasters. Getting a secure location, making a path to reachrepparttar 110096 affected areas for both containment, and pulling out survivors, treatingrepparttar 110097 wounded, and feedingrepparttar 110098 people. It has been over 2 weeks sincerepparttar 110099 incident, and still people have no help. Groups impersonating relief organisations seemed to have profitedrepparttar 110100 most, and they have made an unestimated amount of money from unsuspecting samaritans.

Earthquakes, Tsunamis, Mudslides: Extreme Events - What do they Mean?

Written by C. Bailey-Lloyd/LadyCamelot

In lieu of recent, tumultuous occurrences, people are more compelled than ever to discoverrepparttar mystery of these modern-day, earth-changing events.

One day, Earth is experiencingrepparttar 110082 fourth largest earthquake in a century - a 9.0 tectonics plate shift offrepparttar 110083 coast of Sumatra,repparttar 110084 next day - Tsunami.

A Report from NASA explains howrepparttar 110085 poles have permanently shifted by an entire inch. According to Dr. Benjamin Fong Chao, "...Any worldly event that involvesrepparttar 110086 movement of mass affectsrepparttar 110087 Earth's rotation, from seasonal weather down to driving a car." Perrepparttar 110088 findings of Doctors Chao and Gross,repparttar 110089 North Pole has shifted by an inch inrepparttar 110090 direction of 145? East Longitude. Based on their report too, was that Earth's oblateness (gravity field) was also decreased by a small amount.

To translate into laymen's terms,repparttar 110091 change in mass distribution can effect long-term global climate changes; (See here for more info) thus,repparttar 110092 El Nino/La Nina effect is strengthened due to unusual mean sea level pressure.

The Journal of Geophysical Research published an abstract on data analysis fromrepparttar 110093 Earth's gravity field. In their profound study, results showed that Earth's gravity field has undergone significant variations duringrepparttar 110094 past 28 years alone. The largest (of these fluctuations) occurred duringrepparttar 110095 1996 - 2002 time frame. Again, we have a scenario of mass redistributions inrepparttar 110096 atmosphere and ocean in a relatively short period.

Personal research fromrepparttar 110097 National Earthquake Information Center showed that between December 5, 2004 and January 5, 2005 there were over 170 earthquakes acrossrepparttar 110098 globe that measured over a 5.0 (onrepparttar 110099 Richter Scale).

According torepparttar 110100 Volcano Information Center, 77 volcanoes have erupted or are experiencing ongoing eruptions since 2002 - 2004; of which, 57 began erupting during 2004 alone.

The recent California Mudslides,repparttar 110101 torrential downpours, and extreme winter precipitation begs one to try and comprehend what exactly is occurring and why it is happening at this point in time. Once again, we return torepparttar 110102 statement made by Dr. Benjamin Fong Chao, "...Any worldly event that involvesrepparttar 110103 movement of mass affectsrepparttar 110104 Earth's rotation, from seasonal weather down to driving a car."

Based on this analogy, we can clearly define that magnetic field composition and movement can and does affect global weather (on a broad scale). But what other effects canrepparttar 110105 magnetic field have onrepparttar 110106 planet as a whole?

Interestingly enough, I was able to retrieve different reports that may somehow involve magnetic field proponents: In February of 2004, `...over 10,000 Bramblings dropped dead in a `bird rain' inrepparttar 110107 Eastern Province of Jiangsu - Yangzi,' as reported inrepparttar 110108 BBC News. In addition, in November of 2004, 100s of Whales and dolphins were found stranded offrepparttar 110109 coast of Tasmania and New Zealand (Australia Broadcasting Corp ). Reporter Jocelyn Nettlefold stated, "...The weather appears to be central torepparttar 110110 stranding cycle. Every decade or so, atmospheric changes bring cooler, sub-Antarctic waters further north..." Professor Mark Hindell further elaborated, "...there have been suggestions inrepparttar 110111 past that seismic exploration may have been associated with strandings inrepparttar 110112 US..."
