Mitch Battros- Earth changes and the weather, earthquakes and all such fascinating things. This is a fascinating website.
Everything is closely linked meaning just changing one thing can have a knock-on effect. The reason I say this is our climate changing can cause a domino effect which can lead to earthquakes & Volcanoes, not only can it cause them, it can also determine the size of these disasters. When our climate changes it affects the ice on land, this has a knock-on effect on our sea levels, so if the temperatures rise, our melting glaciers speed up causing sea levels to rise faster, it is calculated that today, glaciers cover around 10% of the Earth”s total land area. During the last ice age, they covered 32% This movement in mass weight is causing different pressures in different areas of the tectonic plates and depending on the speed of these changes will determine the size of the earthquake. If the speed of the change in weights is quick, it will more likely cause one big earthquake with very small ones following, whereas if the change is slow then this will more likely cause smaller earthquakes but more of them, it is the reason for the ring of fire surrounding the Pacific Ocean with it being the largest area of water, with Indian ocean being right next to it, (now I've not looked this up) but I would guess in the middle of these two big Oceans will be the most active in volcanoes, it's like squeezing an orange in your hand and the pressure squeezes the juices out. The University of Durham looked at levels of land uplift and subsidence in the British Isles since the Ice Age. As the ice retreated 20,000 years ago the release of the enormous weight meant the north slowly tilted up while the south sank down. Scotland is still experiencing this "springboard" effect while southern Ireland, Wales, and England continue to sink. The new study shows that land levels could rise by up to 10cm in some areas of Scotland over the next century, offsetting the effects of sea level rise caused by global warming. But in parts of England, where the land is set to sink by up to 5cm over the next century, it could add between 10 to 33 percent on sea level rises. The map is the most accurate projection of land subsidence in the UK ever compiled. The Durham team not only looked a "geophysical" simulations, which predict what will happen to the earth's crust over time but studied sediments in the soil at 80 sites around the country to see how the land has been changing in the past. Prof Ian Shennan, who led the study, said soil sediments showed that sites in the north of the country are still rising. "The action of the Ice Age on our landmass has been like squeezing a sponge which eventually regains its shape. The earth's crust has reacted over thousands of years and is continuing to react.
