GOES-East captured the movement of dissipating System 90L

Developing System 90L which will never turn into tropical cyclone

The low pressure area System 90L located by NASA’s AIRs in the southern Bay of Campeche on 5 June 2014 fizzled out by 9  June and did not develop into a tropical cyclone. It still dropped heavy rainfall causing flash floods, accompanied by stormy winds on eastern and south-eastern Mexico before the end of its lifetime.

New global map shows probable giant earthquake locations

The map shows the points where giant earthquakes are possible.

International researchers at the Monash University, Australia created a global map showing the points where giant earthquakes are possible to happen.

Most earthquakes occur when tectonic plates are moving. Giant earthquake can occur at subduction zones – where one plate sinks below the other. The information so far was unreliable, mostly because giant earthquakes are relatively rare and tracking record goes as far as the 19th hundred.

New data shows El Mayor–Cucapah earthquake was simple on surface, complicated at depth

Like scars that remain on the skin long after a wound has healed, earthquake fault lines can be traced on Earth's surface long after their initial rupture. Typically, this line of intersection between the area where the fault slips and the ground is more complicated at the surface than at depth. But a new study of the April 4, 2010, El Mayor–Cucapah earthquake in Mexico reveals a reversal of this trend. While the fault involved in the event appeared to be superficially straight, the fault zone is warped and complicated at depth.

Topography Reflects Baja Quake Site's Complex Geology

 The topography surrounding the Laguna Salada fault in the Mexican state of Baja, California, is clearly shown in this combined radar image and topographic view (right) generated with data from NASA's Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM). On April 4, 2010, a magnitude 7.2 earthquake struck along this fault about 64 kilometers (40 miles) south of the Mexico-United States border.
