Scientists at the University of Toronto, Mississauga, have found new evidence of an earthquake that shook San Juan in Argentina in the 1950s. The findings provide important data on one of the world’s most active regions and may help to prevent the occurrence of earthquakes. Protect the cities of the region from future earthquakes damage.

“This area is seismically active and is committed to many faults as a mass of Earth moves over the other,” said Jeremy Rimando, the lead author of the study. “It is a region with frequent earthquakes,” said the scientific author of the study.

Rimando calculates the rate of slip between a number of earthquakes and how quickly the two sides of the error move relative to each other, which can provide evidence of the number of times the earthquake occurs, as the low slip rate is usually associated with a long repeat interval.

Long periods of repetition may mean that earthquakes may not occur much, but when they do, they may be significant because of the pressure accumulated over time. If the sliding rate moves slowly, it can eventually accumulate a large amount of pressure, Large earthquakes occur on a lower speed basis, Jeremy Rimando said.

“Our data indicate that the Rinconada slide is slowly moving at a rate of 0.4 mm per year and indicates that Rinconda’s sliding rate is associated with earthquakes of magnitude 6.6 to 7.2, in the 1952 earthquake,” Raimundo said.

Lead author of the study Jeremy Rimando added that the research requires further investigation to determine the timing of the interval and its repetition in this error, and to know the possible size where buildings vibrate at different frequencies depending on the earthquake, so the most likely size is more important than knowledge of the maximum.
