New Type of Earthquake Discovered by Japanese Scientist

Japan is one of many countries that mostly visited of one of the most destructive force of Mother’s Nature creation “the Earthquake”.

Through the years Japan is almost experiencing an earthquake every day that seems to become a daily part of their life.

On March 11, 2011, two massive earthquake hit the country of Japan, the first earthquake was recorded at 9.0 magnitude. It was the strongest earthquake to hit Japan and one of the top five largest earthquakes in the world since seismological record-keeping began. 

The massive earthquake quickly follows a tsunami with waves of up to 10 meters high.

On the same day another strong earthquake hit Japan but this time it is much lower than the first one which is recorded at 7.1 magnitude. The two quake causes 15,894 confirmed death.

While, the world's largest earthquake that has been recorded since the beginning of seismological record was magnitude 9.5. It occurred on May 22, 1960 in southern Chile. The quake was also known as the "Great Chilean Earthquake"

And the deadliest earthquake thus ever recorded in history was happen in Shansi, China of January 23, 1556. The earthquake shows a destructive force of 8.0 magnitude killing 830, 000 confirmed death.

Through the years scientists all over the worlds are been studying on how to detect if an earthquake is about to happen? But seems scientist has not yet discovered Mother Nature’s creation on where or when it could happen?

But a recent discovery of another type of strange earthquake were detected for the first time in Japan. Japan scientists conducting studies related to earthquakes occurring in the country and to trace its place near the scene of a bad weather.

Here are Types of Earthquake that happen to Planet Earth:

1. P waves or primary wave microseisms, it is detected when a major hurricane happen or a fast movement or motion. animals are the first one to feel before an earthquakes is about to happen?

2. S wave or secondary wave, It is slower and it moves on rocks and people are now starting to feel the movement of earthquake.

3. S wave microseism, a new discovery that moves the Earth from 0.05 to 0.5 Hz frequency range. this happens in a bad weather condition.

The ongoing study of experts is to improve the detection of earthquakes and 'oceanic' storms.
