Europe may be slowly disappearing under Africa research

first_imgThe tectonic plates underlying the continents and oceans. Image: USGS For many millions of years, the two continents have been converging with the northern edge of the African tectonic plate slowly descending underneath the Eurasian plate. However, Wortel’s research has showed that this process seems to have stalled and may be in the process of changing roles.While the dense rock of the northern African plate has been drawn into the Earth’s mantle, the remaining portion of the African land mass is too light. With this being the case, Wortel points to the possible reversal of roles, seeing the heavier Eurasian plate now moving below the African plate and creating a new subduction zone. With this possible switch in roles, scientists are warning of an increased risk of seismic activity in the Mediterranean. Because of this, and in light of the recent earthquakes and tsunamis in Japan, scientists are voicing concern that European countries are not putting enough resources into a tsunami warning system. While earthquakes in the Mediterranean region are traditionally smaller than those found in the Pacific Rim, there have been recorded magnitude 8 earthquakes.Researchers are hopeful that this confirmation of a European subduction will lead the way to allow scientists to better model the region and assess the risks of earthquake and tsunami activity in the area.

The company is known for its annual production of Anoushka Shankar’s concerts, as well as for organising shows and live entertainment not just in India, but abroad. Says Manish Porwal, Managing Director of Alchemist, “Despite a highly discerning audience of theatre-goers, Delhi lacks enough options in the cultural and live entertainment sphere that cities like Mumbai and Bengaluru enjoy. We are very proud to have established a platform where theatre will thrive and envision the annual ‘Delhi Theatre Festival’ to be the breeding ground for theatre in India. This year’s chapter is the first of what is set to be the largest property in the theatre calendar in the coming years, attracting Indian and international audiences”last_img read more
