"Beaucoup d’enfants sont traumatisés par l’écroulement de leur maison..."

Au #Népal, alors que le bilan humain s’alourdit, les équipes de l’UNICEF font une première évaluation de cette situation dramatique : 
2,8 millions d’enfants ont besoin d’une aide d’urgence !

Découvrez l'interview de notre collègue Jean-Jacques Simon, témoin à Katmandou du terrible séisme samedi dernier ► http://bit.ly/1OvTBIv

Les secours s'organisent, et l'UNICEF continue d'acheminer du matériel d'urgence aux enfants du Népal.
Vous pouvez aider les enfants victimes du séisme.

Outdoor shelters in Tara Goan Park, Kathmandu, Nepal | Satellite
April 27, 2015: As many of you know, a powerful earthquake struck the country of Nepal this past Saturday. Due to tremendous damage and fear of aftershocks, many people have moved to open spaces outdoors. Satellite images taken in recent days over the city of Kathmandu show a number of these shelters appearing across the city—like the ones seen in this Overview of Tara Goan Park. Our thoughts are with the people of Nepal during this difficult time.
27.720216000°, 85.352543000°

"The Daily Overview project was inspired, and derives its name, from an idea known as the Overview Effect. This term refers to the sensation astronauts have when given the opportunity to look down and view the Earth as a whole. They have the chance to appreciate our home in its entirety, to reflect on its beauty and its fragility all at once. That's the cognitive shift that we hope to inspire."

Nepal Earthquake: Did Kathmandu Shift?

The tremor which struck Nepal on Saturday, killing more than 3,700 people, may have caused a land area around the capital Kathmandu to budge by several metres, experts say.

Q: Did Kathmandu move?

Possibly about three metres (10 feet) southward, according to initial analysis of seismological data obtained from sound waves which travel through Earth after an earthquake, said University of Cambridge tectonics expert James Jackson.

An area of about 150 kilometres (93 miles) long and 50 km wide in a fault running underneath the Kathmandu valley, gave in after decades of pressure, causing rocks on top of the fault to slip southward over the rock underneath it.

The fault lies between two tectonic plates - one bearing India pushing northward into a plate carrying Europe and Asia at a rate of about two centimetres (0.8 inches) per year - the process that created the Himalayas in the first place.

Saturday's lurch likely saw the Kathmandu region rise (in elevation) by about half a metre, while the area to its north sank by about the same margin.

Mount Everest was likely be too far east to have been affected.
The shifts may be large enough to necessitate adjustments to high-precision world maps.

Q: How does the quake compare to others?

Japan's 2011 Tohoku earthquake saw undersea plate movements of about 50 metres, said Paul Tapponnier from Singapore's Earth Observatory, and large land shifts along the shoreline as well.

The largest earthquake in the Himalayas hit Assam in 1950, displacing portions of land by almost 30 metres.

The latest quake had a magnitude of 7.8, much less violent than the 8.2-8.5 typical for the area, said Tapponnier, and likely not strong enough to have relieved all the stress accumulated along the fault.

Q: When will the next one be?

One thing the experts agree on, is that there will be more major quakes in the stricken region. What nobody knows, is when.

According to Gary Gibson of the University of Melbourne's School of Earth Sciences, earthquakes with a magnitude greater than 7.5 have shaken Kathmandu every 100 years on average over the last 1,000 years. But the intervals between them varied from 23 years to 273 years.

Just a part of the fault gives in every time, making the adjoining area unstable in turn, and setting up conditions for the next quake, said the experts.

Introduction
  Artiste peintre & Auteur de poésie contemporaine. Pintor de cuadros & Autor de poesía contemporánea. FRENCH Painter & Author of contemporary poetry.   Extrait de la préface du recueil de poèmes "Ecorce d'orage" signée Christian Le Roy (2009) : Le recueil de Marisa Castro porte le cri de désespérance de " l'amour fou ", le cri de colère de " l'amour sorcier "... C'est une oeuvre au noir, un travail vers le silence de l'autre... Marisa Castro s'écrie " d'un pays sous l'écorce " - Andalousie ou " chair rouge de Corse "... Dans un ciel tourmenté de nuées à la Goya, elle annonce " le reflet volcan ", des " orages nervurés de rubis "... En 2007, publication du recueil de poèmes intitulé 'les tiroirs parlent-ils ?'. Extrait de commentaire : "Est-ce qu'on peut entrer, toujours, n'importe où, être dans le dedans de cet endroit, même s'il n'est pas sûr qu'il y ait un dedans, tu entres..." (Guillevic). Qu'a-t-elle déposé ici ? ...Quelles tranches d'existence qui restaient en attente de tri... Et où avait-t-elle -seule -dissimulé "la clef de cette parade sauvage" (A. Rimbaud)... "Objets inanimés avez-vous donc une âme ?" (A. De Lamartine)...et la voici à la recherche de son temps perdu, car "chaque noeud du bois renferme davantage de cris d'oiseaux que tout le coeur de la forêt" (René Guy Cadou)...et bientôt elle perçoit un doux chuchotis de ..."la femme aux tiroirs" de Dalí, de Gala dans "l'union libre"... Gala de niveau de feu... Gala de niveau d'eau... Gala de niveau d'air... Gala de niveau de terre... Une belle voix toute bruissante de colliers et de cailloux bleus qui esquissent l'autoportrait intime d'une femme secrète. Fatalement. "Si je n'écris pas aujourd'hui, en saurai-je davantage ?" (Guillevic). Alors -vite- que l'écriture se prolonge à d'autres tiroirs... "Pour que les virgules inscrivent le merci" (Chantal Lammertyn). >Article signé par Ch. Le Roy. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Marisa-Castro/429617023746783#!/pages/Marisa-Castro/429617023746783  http://www.facebook.com/pages/Marisa-Castro/429617023746783#!/marisa.castro.9615  https://twitter.com/MarisaCastroOff  https://www.myspace.com/marisacastro
