Quake Aftershocks

Posted May 19, 2011 2:05 PM

In the aftermath of the earthquake disaster in Japan, the country's heavy industries have had their production disrupted. Is your organization being affected by industrial slowdowns (particularly in metals industries) in Japan or coincident market disruptions in Asia?

The preceding article is a "sneak peek" from Metals & Alloys, a newsletter from GlobalSpec. To stay up-to-date and informed on industry trends, products, and technologies, subscribe to Metals & Alloys today.

They are still getting a couple quakes per day of around 5 magnitude.

On the 13th (UTC) they had another 6.2.

Not easy getting settled when things still shake several times a day.

Japan is the pin point of automotive industry.The quake has disrupted the assembly line of many Asian countries.The earthquake can be predicted days before by observing atmospheric temperature graph.sudden depression in temperature graph indicates proximity of quake.The Sumatra quake in 2004 has showed this.Many previous shocks from 1994 in south INDIA had this effect. The 2004 quake showed the many days graph with depression in atmospheric temperature from12Noon .
