Tectonic Hazards

A PowerPoint of images to accompany the notesheet

slide2

EARTHQUAKES

Mexico City 1985

Ground shaking

PRIMARY HAZARD

Long Waves

Nature of surface (dried up lake bed)

slide3

Loma Prieta epicenter PRIMARY

(San Francisco 1989)

Marina District badly affected

Foundations on rubble infill after 1906 earthquake.

Lessons not learnt so repetition of disaster.

SECONDARY fire

slide4

Leninakan Armenia

PRIMARY HAZARD

On December 7, 1988, a magnitude 6.9 earthquake shook northwestern Armenia

Collapse of floors leaving walls standing in building in Leninakan.

This three-story building is one of the older buildings.

Most of the newer one-and two-story dwellings and two- and three-story commercial buildings in Leninakan received little damage.

250000 deaths.

slide5

When liquefaction occurs, the strength of the soil decreases and, the ability of a soil deposit to support foundations for buildings and bridges is reduced – see the overturned apartment complex buildings in Niigata in 1964. SECONDARY HAZARD

slide6

LANDSLIDES

Earthquakes can dislodge glacier chunks causing disastrous mudflows.

slide7

Tsunami e.g. Banda Ache

Asian Tsunmai December 26th 2004

SECONDARY HAZARD

slide8

VOLCANOES

Basalt lava flow

Kilauea , Hawaii

Predictable and not too hazardous

PRIMARY HAZARD

slide9

Pyroclastic flow is composed mainly of volcanic rock and dense ash material and is ejected from an exploding volcano. Up to 200 kph.

PRIMARY HAZARD

Death by pyroclastic flow can be terrifyingly brutal. In less than a second, the body is submerged in fire... the first breath vaporizes the internal organs... the pain barely has a chance to register... the body is almost instantly reduced to charcoal

slide10

ASH FALL

PRIMARY HAZARD

slide11

VOLCANIC GASES On August 21, 1986 is erupted in quite an unexpected manner. The lake itself basically turned over, allowing trapped gas to diffuse all at once, creating an enormous pool of CO2 that killed more than 1700 people and their livestock. PRIMARY HAZARD

“The Great Farting Lake of 1986” – Lake Nyos Cameroon

slide12

Lahars – SECONDARY HAZARDS

In the aftermath of Pinatubo, Phillipines – every year in heavy rains more lahars occur. The eruption was 1991.

slide15

TSUNAMI 1999 New Guinea

SECONDARY HAZARD

Destruction at the village of Teles, located at the outer edge of the area inundated by the tsunami.  In many areas, bare house poles and debris where all that remained of homes.  A total of 10,000 survivors lost their homes and personal possessions.
