  1. Introduction. The Philippines archipelago, located at the boundary of the Eurasian and West Philippine Sea Plate (PSP) provides a unique setting to investigate the tectono-magmatic processes in a convergent margin (e.g., Castillo et al., , Castillo et al., , Sajona et al., , Yumul et al., b).The region was also affected by the north–north west-ward motion of the Cited by:   The Philippine Archipelago, which is located at the Eurasian and west Philippine Sea Plate (PSP) boundary, is an amalgamated terrane of oceanic terrain, continent and . [1] Two winter monsoon surge events (northerly and easterly) of January are captured in a one‐way coupled atmosphere (8 km resolution) and ocean (3 km resolution) simulation of the Philippines region. Intensified wind jets and wakes in the lee of Mindoro and Luzon Islands induce the generation and migration of a pair of counter‐rotating oceanic eddies in the model, with propagation Cited by: This paper deals with questions of beach resort development processes and their management. Issues are discussed within the context of Boracay Island in the Philippines, which is a popular.

The key site for the earliest stone tools was for a long time Tanzania’s Olduvai Gorge, thanks to finds of deliberately shaped choppers, hammer stones and sharp edges from about 2 Ma ago in close association with remains of Homo habilis by the Leakeys. Termed ‘Oldowan’, signs of this industry emerged from Ma sediments in the Afar.

2 days ago  On 6 February ( UTC/ AM local time), a magnitude (M W) earthquake struck the island of Negros in Visayas, Central Philippines (Figure 1A).The mainshock epicentral location was 23 km southwest of Guihulngan City (° N, ° E) and the focus was estimated to be ~5 km deep (Figure 1A).The mainshock focal mechanism solution (FMS) (strike = °, dip = 60°, rake =   The generation of the high species diversity of insects in Japan was profoundly influenced by the formation of the Japanese Archipelago. We explored the species diversification and biogeographical history of the Nemouridae Billberg, family in the Japanese Archipelago using mitochondrial DNA and nuclear DNA markers. We collected 49 species among four genera: . For the real-time forecasts, the physical model was initialized using hydrographic data from August and the new biogeochemical model using historical data. The Philippines is an archipelago composed of about 7, islands with a total land area, including inland bodies of water, of , square kilometers (, sq mi). [better source needed] kilometers (22, mi) of coastline makes it the country with the fifth longest coastline in the world.
