Crust at many divergent plate boundaries forms primarily by the injection of vertical sheet-like dykes, some tens of kilometres long. Previous models of rifting events indicate either lateral dyke growth away from a feeding source, with propagation rates decreasing as the dyke lengthens, or magma flowing vertically into dykes from an underlying source, with(More)
The seismic gap theory identifies regions of elevated hazard based on a lack of recent seismicity in comparison with other portions of a fault. It has successfully explained past earthquakes (see, for example, ref. 2) and is useful for qualitatively describing where large earthquakes might occur. A large earthquake had been expected in the subduction zone(More)
Introduction Copper is an essential trace element required for many vitally important functions in all cell types in most living organisms [1]. Safe copper cellular uptake, its distribution to cuproenzyme formation sites and its excretion are provided by special copper metabolic system. Unidrectional transport of copper atoms to the sites of cuproenzyme(More)
[1] We provide new insights into the two main seismic events that occurred in 2012 in the Emilia region, Italy. We extend the results from previous studies based on analytical inversion modeling of GPS and RADARSAT-1 InSAR measurements by exploiting RADARSAT-2 data. Moreover, we benefit from the available large amount of geological and geophysical(More)
1 ABSTRACT The M w 6.7 George Sound earthquake of October 15, 2007, occurred only a few kilometres offshore of Fiordland, within a region where the subduction zone of the Australian Plate beneath the Pacific Plate intersects the offshore extension of the Alpine Fault. Rapid response deployments of portable seismographs, a strong motion recorder and GPS(More)
The article is devoted to the investigation of the use of low frequency ultrasound surgical instrument in treatment of trophic ulcers and infected wounds in surgical patients. The method of treatment of these wounds and ulcers by cavitation influence through an intermediate medium was established, an ultrasound surgical apparatus "SUSA-2lf.02", being used,(More)
1 SUMMARY Gisborne city experienced recorded peak ground accelerations exceeding 0.25g for the third time since 1966 in the magnitude M w 6.6 earthquake at 075516 UT (8:55 pm local time) on 20 December 2007. The earthquake was at a hypocentral distance of 64 km from Gisborne at a depth of 40 km, well within the mantle of the subducted slab of the Pacific(More)
