Earthquakes in Iran and weather anomalies

Two strong earthquakes of magnitude 6.4 and 6.3, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, occurred August 11, 2012 in the north-west of Iran in East Azerbaijan Province. The epicenter was located at 50-60 km northeast of Tabriz with a 1.5 million population, focal depth was 9.7 and 9.8 km, respectively. The first earthquake occurred at 16:53, and the second - over 10 minutes, at 17:03 local time. Following these jerks followed more than 60 aftershocks of varying strength.


Underground elements has claimed more than 300 lives, injured thousands, and destroyed 100 villages completely affected villages in 1000, and the city Ahar, Varazkan, Harith, who were in the area of the epicenter. Victims among the population was small because the earthquake occurred during the day, when many were not home.


Iran is among the ten most seismically active regions of the world. The latest earthquake in 2003 in the south of the country killed about 37,000 people, was completely destroyed the ancient city of Bam, which existed for over 2000 years.


To the Iranian earthquakes in the Province of East Azerbaijan preceded seismic activity in the Middle East. Since the beginning of the year to August, a series of earthquakes with a magnitude of 5-6 in Turkey, on the border of Turkey, Iraq and Syria, on the border of Iran and Iraq in the West of Iran, in Azerbaijan, in the East Mediterranean. Dramatically increased seismic activity in the north of the Indian Ocean off the northwest coast of the Indonesian island of Sumatra. April 11 there were two powerful earthquakes of magnitude 8.6 and 8.2, which have had an impact on a global scale environmental changes. (See Boris Mavashev, in site ). Aftershocks of earthquakes with a magnitude of up to 7 continue to this day.


Iranian earthquake and the earthquake mentioned above, had a significant influence on the weather. Typically, to seismic shocks precede a sharp rise in air temperature. As a result, the summer in the Middle East, particularly in Israel, it was much hotter than usual. So, in Jerusalem, the average temperature was above normal by 2-4 degrees.


So, the new data confirm once again the relationship between weather, climate anomalies and earthquakes, from which developed an improved method of short-term earthquake prediction (Boris Mavashev, site: and Wikipedia).
