Hello Hamse
Hopping that you are fine and all your families and relatives are also fine too.
My name is Samwel,I am from Iringa Tanzania in Klerruu secondary school.
I would like to share to you what I have learn in my week.
It is about EARTHQUAKES
Earthquakes refer to the sudden shaking or vibrations of the earth’s crust due to sudden and rapid displacement of tectonic plates along the line of weakness (faults). It occurs mainly in volcanic eruption zones. The point from which the earthquake originates is known as focus and the intensity of earthquakes can be measured by using an instrument called seismograph. The point on the surface vertically above the focus is called epicentre.
There are several causes of earthquakes. These are:-
• Faulting of the lithosphere caused by tectonic movement where one plate slides over another plate.
• Mass wasting like land slide and rock fall can cause occurrence of earthquake, but this is for local scale.
• Falling objects from the atmosphere such as meteorites may lead to the shaking earth’s crust.
• Man’s influence through his activities such as mining using explosives like dynamites and transport vessels like trains and heavy trucks.
Also there are some effects which are:-
• They can cause loss of life and property.
• They can displace parts of the earth’s crust vertically or laterally.
• They can raise or lower parts of the sea floor.
• They can raise or lower coastal rocks.
• They can cause landslide and open up deep cracks in the surface rocks.
There are several Measurement of earthquake. These are like as follows:-
The intensity and magnitude measure the strength of the earthquake. These are obtained by detecting the Seismic waves using instruments called seismograph or seismometer.
Intensity is a measure of how hard the earthquake shakes the ground. It is determined through the effects produced by the earthquake. Intensity varies from one place to another. While the intensity of a specific earthquake varies, its magnitude does not vary. So it is important not to confuse magnitude with intensity.
The scale which measures the intensity is called Mercalli scale. It ranges from undetectable, moderate, strong to major catastrophe.
Magnitude refers to the total amount of amount of energy released and it is given on the Ritcher scale. This scale ranges from 0 to 8.9.
There are several precautionary measures to avoid high damage from earthquakes. These are
• Refraining from building high-rising structures on the land vulnerable to earthquake as well as strengthening buildings by using reinforced concrete, steel frames, deep foundations and light roofs.
• Geologists should detect epicentres and tell the people to evacuate the places likely to be affected by earthquakes.
• To avoid constructing very large water bodies like Kariba dam which can cause the earthquakes due to the weight of water and other materials.
• Discouraging the use of explosives like dynamites in breaking the rocks during mining and construction operations.
Can you share to me something that was interest to you during your week??????
Also I would like to know from you about What are your favorable subject and what funny do you like mostly???????????
....................Wish you nice weekend...............
