Scientists: Isolation because of coronavirus changes Earth's movement

Scientists from the Royal Observatory in Belgium found a reduction in seismic noise - the hum of vibrations in the Earth's crust, reported in. “Mirror.”
This could be the result of limited movement in major cities, where transport is severely diluted and people hardly leave their homes, experts say, BTA reports.

Scientists analyzed earth motion with a seismometer. Their analysis shows seismic noise in Brussels has fallen by about a third since restrictions were introduced because of the coronavirus.

Similar results are also available by researchers from the California Institute of Technology for Los Angeles.

Specialists hope that this lull will strengthen the sensitivity of their equipment to natural waves and they will be able to make better measurements.
