Coronavirus lockdown lessen UK undercoat movements
The UK hasn’t been trembling as much since it went into Covid lockdown.
Seismometer stations, which are commonly used to report earthquakes, have discovered a big fall in the ground shaking connected to human activity.
Scientists from Imperial College London say this framework bombinate is now half what it would usually be.
The unequalled seismic quiet – a occurrence cloned in other countries – could offer a unique opportunity to study the Earth’s interior.
“You’d have to go back decades to see noise levels like this,” commented Imperial’s Dr Stephen Hicks. “You’d often get quiet times in the evenings or at weekends but not continuously, for weeks,” he told BBC News.
