Elchin Khalilov has informed about the beginning of new project GNFE under the name "Geodynamic monitoring and hazard early warning system in landslide areas:"GeoDyn".

The new project is based on use of long-term experience effective application of international systems and geodynamical monitoring for forecasting of earthquakes. The project's mission is to create an effective technology for monitoring and early warning of people about the danger of a landslide, reducing thereby the risk to potential victims and other negative consequences of landslides affecting cities and high-risk industrial facilities (main highways and railways, dams, fuel storages and warehouses for toxic substances, petrochemical plants, etc.).

6.0 quake off Russia's far-east Kamchatka

A 6.0 earthquake struck Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula early Tuesday followed by a series of strong aftershocks, the US Geological Survey said.

The first quake struck at a depth of 33km at ,0155 GMT (1155 AEST) 136km east-southeast of the Russian city of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, the USGS reported.

It was followed by three after-shocks, the strongest of which measured 5.9 at a depth of 44km, it added.

The Kamchatka branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences' geophysics service said on its website that the quake's magnitude measured 6.1, followed by aftershocks with a magnitude of up to 6.0.

The earthquake did not cause any casualties, the Kamchatka branch of the Emergency Situations ministry said in a statement.

"There is no risk of a tsunami. There are no casualties or damage."

The Kamchatka peninsula is where the Pacific tectonic plate meets part of the North American one, making the region one of the most seismically active in the world.
