  • The magnitude of the deepest earthquake was 7.9 on the Richter scale.
  • The epicenter of the earthquake was off Japan’s Bonin Island.

New Delhi:

Generally, when earthquakes occur, their depth remains only from 10 to 50 kilometers. At the same time, scientists have recently detected an earthquake whose depth is several hundred kilometers. According to media reports, scientists say that this earthquake occurred at a depth of up to 751 kilometers inside the earth. This earthquake is being termed by scientists as the deepest earthquake ever. According to media reports, this earthquake occurred in the lower mantle of the earth.

Scientists are surprised to see this earthquake. In fact, earthquakes on this surface are extremely rare. In the investigation of scientists, it has come to the fore that the earthquake has occurred due to excessive pressure in the lower mantle. They say that due to stretching, pressure or wear and tear in the layer of stones, the situation of earthquake can be created. Pamela Burnley, professor of geomaterials at the University of Nevada, says such changes are not expected from minerals. In such a situation, it is quite rare for such an earthquake to occur due to pressure in the lower mantle.

He says that this world’s deepest earthquake is being investigated. He says that only after the study report comes, some correct guess can be made. According to media reports, the intensity of the world’s deepest earthquake was 7.9 on the Richter scale. According to media reports, before this there were waves of mild earthquake. The epicenter of the earthquake was off the Bonin Island of Japan. The study has been published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.

University of Arizona seismologist Eric Kaiser says that Japan has the world’s best network Hi-net Array to measure earthquakes. At the same time, seismologist John Wiedel of the University of Southern California says that this system of Japan can detect any type of earthquake.
