“Europe's Secret Quakes”
Nature and Environment (), Alex Hearle (Gro) 50 min
Northern Europe, the most densely populated place on earth isn’t somewhere anyone would expect to find earthquakes; it’s hundreds of miles from the active zones of the world. But new science is revealing a very different story. Experts have discovered fault lines that made volcanoes erupt in the middle of France, roman ruins ripped apart by massive forces in Cologne, major cities flattened in the Middle Ages, massive tsunamis hammering lakes in the middle of Switzerland and proof of quakes so big Europe’s cities wouldn’t stand a chance. This film follows the work of scientists looking at this evidence and examines what could happen if another big quake hit.
