Nature has benefited in many cases due to the coronavirus. Under which scientists say that due to the precautionary people worldwide, quarantine and lockdown has reduced anthropogenic ‘seismic noise’. Due to this, low intensity earthquakes can also be identified with greater accuracy and clarity. He made it clear that due to this shutdown, there has been no decrease in the vibration of the surface of the earth.
In their statement, the scientists said that the noise of earthquake is a continuous vibration of the ground. Earlier studies had said that all kinds of human activities create vibrations that distort the measurement done with good earthquake devices. These distortions have decreased due to the ongoing bandh in many parts of the world.
Earthquake scientists, including Professor Supriya Mitra of Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Kolkata, believe that it would be wrong to say that the earth’s surface is now vibrating slowly, as in some media reports. Statistics in Belgium show that human-caused seismic noise has decreased by about 30% due to the shutdown adopted to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in Brussels. Scientists said that this peace means that the data on measuring the earthquake on the surface are as clear as were previously found by placing the same instrument in the depths of the earth. The earthquake scientist Thomas Laycock of the Royal Observatory of Belgium, Brussels, who gave this new idea, said that voice loss on this scale is usually experienced only around Christmas.
