‘Boomerang earthquake’ undersea it strikes twice than normal

By Admin

This is the first time scientists have found evidence of a rare and unusual ‘boomerang’ earthquake.

In 2016, an earthquake shook the deep sea beneath the Atlantic Ocean. When an earthquake occurs the rocks suddenly fall on a fault.

But during a boomerang earthquake, the crack spreads away from the initial break and then turns around and returns at a faster speed.

An international team of experts from the United Kingdom, the United States, Germany, and Japan conducted research on the quake in the Atlantic Ocean, according to the journal Nature Geoscience.

Incidentally, the magnitude of this rare earthquake in the Atlantic Ocean in 2016 was 7.1.

The quake struck along the Romanch fracture region in the equator between the east coast of Brazil and the west coast of Africa.

Scientists noticed that in the first earthquake, the crack had moved to one side.

The epicenter was reported below the ground, however, no tidal wave alert was issued.

This team of scientists believes that even though the whole process took place step by step for the second time.

The first episode was extremely important for the research team member said.

The American Philosopher Stephen Hicks said: “As soon as scientists realize that such a fatal process is possible from theoretical models, I am convinced that this new study will provide some clear evidence of this mysterious phenomenon.”

At the same time, the scientist added, “While the incident may seem simple, the way the earthquake has escalated has taken on a different dimension.”

The form epicenter was reported below the ground, however, there no tsunami alert was issued.

Scientists say the discovery of the Boomerang an earthquake it will help for further research. It can predict future earthquakes come back.
