Earthquakes increase tree growth

Earthquakes increase tree growth
Leipzig, Germany: Earthquakes wreak havoc, but one benefit is that they significantly increase tree growth.

According to scientists, this is a strange thing, but the magnitude of earthquakes themselves invert groundwater and the useful nutrients and salts in it. Even aftershocks of earthquakes can ensure water supply to the trees.

But this is a preliminary assumption, and scientists believe that more research is needed. On the other hand, genealogy or dendrochronology can give a good idea of ​​the growth of trees during earthquakes.
In this regard, Christian Moher, a water expert at the University of Potsdam in Germany, says that large earthquakes accelerate the flow of water underground and raise their levels. The roots of the plants get plenty of water and thus the plant grows fast. But it does not have a significant effect on trees that grow at very high altitudes.

Scientists chose Chile for their research, where a magnitude 8.8 earthquake struck in 2010. When the survey was launched in 2014, it was found that there was a significant increase in the growth of trees in the valley and in the plains. This is also confirmed by the circle of trees and other scales.

The growth of trees on the slopes and hills was slow and if there was any increase, it was temporary. However, in this way valuable information about earthquakes can be obtained from a tree thousands of years old.
