In Nagasaki, newborn death rates skyrocketed in the nine months after the bombing: 43% of pregnancies in which the fetus was exposed within a quarter-mile of the hypocenter
ended in spontaneous abortion, stillbirth or infant death.
MOST PEOPLE who have been to contemporary Hiroshima have seen the Atomic Bomb Dome, the shell of a building that was some sixty meters from the hypocenter
of the 1945 atomic blast, and which now serves as a modern symbol of that bitter truth commonly referred to as man's inhumanity to man.
0 or greater and a maximum hypocenter
depth of 200 kilometers or deeper will cause full payment of the bond's value to the nation's Fondo de Desastres Naturales (FONDEN), or natural disaster fund.
If black culture is the epicenter of popular culture in America, vogue culture is the hypocenter
The layered 1D model was subsequently used to compute absolute hypocenter
locations using the program Hypoinverse (Klein 2002), and high-precision relative locations using the double-difference algorithm HypoDD (Waldhauser & Ellsworth 2000).
was estimated to be 12 miles below the earth's surface.
The information included location of hypocenter
, magnitude, and island-wide intensities.
Li visited the Nagasaki Peace Park in the city and offered flowers at a memorial at the hypocenter
of the atomic bomb that devastated the city in August 1945.
Unlike diffracted P waves, which bounce from an earthquake's hypocenter
down 2,000 miles along the boundary, PKP waves go directly through the inner core of the Earth.
The Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) reported that the depth of the hypocenter
was 14 kilometers, which is considered to be a relatively shallow earthquake.
The overpressure at the hypocenter
(the spot directly under the explosion) at Hiroshima is estimated to have reached 4.
While they can't be positive, seismologists suspect that somewhere beneath Point Reyes lay the 1906 quake's hypocenter
- the point on the fault that first ruptures.
