AbstractThis guide provides resources (written and on the web) about the contributions of women to astronomy. It includes sections on over 30 specific women of the past and present, and also a section of general articles and web sites on the tribulations and triumphs of women in the field. This is a good source of information for students doing papers and includes a number of sources they would probably not find on their own.
This resource guide for teachers and learners provides a large set of print and web-based resources about the contributions of women to astronomy. It includes sections on more than 30 women of the past and present, plus a section of general articles on the triumphs and challenges of women in the field of astronomy. Also included are links to comprehensive bibliographies, NASA profiles of women astronomers, and recommended web sites related to the topic. The materials in this compilation are non-technical and are appropriate for secondary level curriculum development and student research support.

Southern Perú coseismic subsidence: 23 June 2001 8.4-Mw earthquakeL. Ocola (Copernicus GmbH, 2008-01-01)The 23-June-2001 8.4-Mw magnitude earthquake partially filled the 1868-seismic-gap in southern Perú. This earthquake produced a thrust faulting dislocation with a rupture that started at about ~200 km SE from the 1996&apos;s Nazca earthquake epicenter, and stopped near Ilo, at about 300 km from the epicenter, near a positive gravity anomaly offshore Ilo. The 23-June-2001-earthquake dislocation zone is under the Arequipa sedimentary Basin. Pre- and post-seismic GPS measurements at Camaná and Ilo at SIRGAS-GPS points (SIRGAS: Sistema de Referencia Geocéntrico para América del Sur) and the average sea level pre- and post-seismic event at Mollendo tide gauge provide evidence of a regional subsidence of southern Perú, with 84 cm at Camaná, 16 cm at Ilo, and 15 cm at Mollendo. Field surveys post earthquake document significant subsidence in Camaná resort beaches. Results of a simple dislocation modelling of 23-June-2001 earthquake agree reasonably well with the observed data. However, the coseismic subsidence of southern Perú is at variance with the regional uplift of southern Perú based on Neotectonic studies. This fact, suggests that, in recent geological times, the magnitude of the secular uplift due to tectonic plate converge has been larger than the coseismic deformation recovery.
