The shape of houses is changing, according to a study of data collected by the US Geological Survey, as people move and the environment changes.
“There are a lot of variables that influence how houses look today, like climate, the landscape, the weather,” said James Lohr, a geographer and the lead author of the study.
The study, published in the journal Science Advances, looked at a series of data sets from the USGS, including a detailed survey of the country’s houses.
Lohst said the data suggested that houses were changing in many ways over the past century.
They also showed that many houses were built in the 1950s and 1960s, but the average age of new houses increased from a decade to almost 20 years.
“The house as we know it today began in the 1960s and the house is not very old,” he said.
The new study looked at two different sets of data, one from 1950 to the 1970s and another from 2010 to 2020.
The researchers also looked at data from two separate sets of houses, one built in 1851 and the other in 1910.
The latter group of houses have been built over the course of hundreds of years.
Loughr and his team looked at the average ages of all the houses in each group, but they didn’t compare the ages of the individual buildings to their contemporaries in the same group.
The team then ran simulations to show that houses would be expected to change in a similar way to the way the earth changes, according with the geological forces of gravity.
The Earth’s axis of rotation is moving at a rate of about 4.5 metres per year.
In the simulation, the house built in 1910 was moving at about 0.02 millimetres per year, which would mean it was moving about 1 millimetre per year in a year.
That was still very slow.
The simulation also showed how the house would be affected by changes in climate and other factors.
“If we look at the climate model, which is the simplest model that you can use to simulate changes in the Earth, it’s moving a little bit faster in the north and a little slower in the south, and we see that the average house will be moving a lot slower in north and south,” Lohl said.
“So if you look at our climate model it’s changing very fast, but it’s going through the motions of a lot more slowly than our Earth.”
The model used by the researchers suggests that the Earth’s rotation is slowing down by about 0,8 metres per century, Lohrs study found.
The models also suggest that the earth is losing about 0 per cent of its mass over the next 200,000 years.
The average age for new houses in the US is 21 years.
Geologists believe that the rate of change in the earth’s orbit around the sun is speeding up over time.
Luhrs study showed that the slow rotation of the earth means that the changes in houses could be happening more rapidly than the rate at which houses are being built.
“You can imagine the house changing in such a way that the house could be moving much faster than it’s been for a long time,” Loughst said.
In other words, a house built today could be a few years old in 20 years time.
“We’re in a phase where the earth could be changing faster than the earth itself,” Luhr said.
It’s not clear how the Earth is changing or why it is changing faster, but many of the processes Lohs research found suggest that humans are causing changes to the earth that are driving changes to our environment.
For example, the changes seen in the house’s shape in Loh and his colleagues’ simulations suggest that there is a strong interaction between the structure of the house and the land, which creates a series “trajectories” that create new patterns in the environment.
The paths of the trajectories of these trajectories could have implications for how the environment affects house shape, and the changes that may occur.
The new study also looked specifically at how house shapes change over time in different places around the world.
The data set used by Lohre and his collaborators also found that some of the places with the fastest change in house shape in the past two decades were in the Americas, with places like Guatemala and the US in the Caribbean and Australia in the South Pacific.
“We think there is some very important role for human activities that are impacting the shape and behaviour of houses,” Luchr said in a statement.
“In these areas, we also see that house shape is changing at a very rapid pace, and this makes it possible to see how this process is impacting the environment in these locations.”
