肯尼亚出现了巨大的裂缝双语阅读

Astonishing footage shows the huge crack that is threatening to split the entire continent of Africa in two.

惊人的画面显示,巨大的裂缝威胁着整个非洲大陆的分裂。
 
肯尼亚的措施50英尺深,65英尺宽的大裂缝,破坏了内罗毕的罗克公路的一部分。
 
现在,研究地壳板块的科学家声称,巨大的裂缝可能会撕裂非洲。
 
Lucia Perez Diaz,在伦敦的大学博士后研究员,如何解释这个大陆破裂可能发生。
 
迪亚兹说:“东非大裂谷绵延1800英里,从亚丁湾北部到南部的津巴布韦,非洲板块分裂成不相等的两部分:索马里和努比亚板块。
 
“沿着埃塞俄比亚、肯尼亚和坦桑尼亚沿裂谷的东部分支活动,当肯尼亚西南部突然出现一条大裂缝时,就变得很明显了。”
 
这一过程被称为“大陆裂谷”,需要在地球上施加巨大的力量。
 
在地壳下面,一个“岩浆柱”形成,迫使地壳上升并最终分裂。
 
迪亚兹补充说:“最终,经过数千万年的时间,海底的扩展将沿着裂谷的整个长度发展。
 
“海洋将泛滥,因此,非洲大陆将变小,印度洋将形成一个大岛屿,包括埃塞俄比亚和索马里的部分地区,包括非洲之角。”
 
活动裂谷带正以每年几毫米的速度扩散。
 
这意味着在大约1000万年后,一个新的海洋将会出现,因为撕裂继续撕裂非洲。

The massive crevice in Kenya measures 50 feet deep and 65 feet wide and has destroyed part of the Nairobi-Narok highway.

Now, scientists who study tectonic plates are claiming the giant crack could rip Africa apart.

Lucia Perez Diaz, a postdoctoral researcher at the Universtiy of London, explained how this continental rupture could occur.

Diaz said: “The East African Rift Valley stretches over 1,800 miles from the Gulf of Aden in the north towards Zimbabwe in the south, splitting the African plate into two unequal parts: the Somali and Nubian plates.

“Activity along the eastern branch of the rift valley, running along Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania, became evident when the large crack suddenly appeared in south-western Kenya.”

The process is known as “continental rifting” and requires huge forces to be exerted on the Earth.

Underneath the crust, a “magma plume” forms forcing the crust up and eventually splitting it.

Diaz added: “Eventually, over a period of tens of millions of years, seafloor spreading will progress along the entire length of the rift.

“The ocean will flood in and, as a result, the African continent will become smaller and there will be a large island in the Indian Ocean composed of parts of Ethiopia and Somalia, including the Horn of Africa.”

The active rift zone is spreading at a few millimeters per year.

This means that in around 10 million years, a new ocean will emerge as the rip continues to tear Africa apart.
