DECEMBER 26, 2004: PLANET EARTH
SHAKEN, STIRRED AND RUN OVER BY
SUMATRA INDIAN OCEAN EARTHQUAKE-TSUNAMI:
DAY 5 REPORT AS OF DECEMBER 31, 2004

HISTORY OF SUMATRA EARTHQUAKE:

  • The magnitude 9.0 earthquake struck about 7 a.m. Sunday, December 26, 2004 (0000 GMT) and was centered about 248 km rs) off the coast of Indonesia's Sumatra island at a depth of about 6.2 miles (10 kilometers).

  • This earth quake is a split second event of the two earth plates in the ocean bottom grinding and moving against each other after complex geological actions in the earth's crust for the millions of years to date. India and eastern Asia to Japan are located on the Euro-Asia plate and this earthquake occurred along the 1000 km long fault line between India and Burma

  • Energy released by earthquake: Equal to one million atomic bombs of the size dropped on Japan in the Second World War created ocean waves called TSUNAMI with following results:

    • tsunami traveling at 800 km/hour - faster than commercial airlines and height of 10 m at India coast line;

    • tsunami caused property and life destruction in Indonesia, shoreline of south India, Ceylon, Andaman Islands, and Coast of north-east Africa some 3000 miles away.

EFFECT OF MASSIVE ENERGY RELEASE OF SUMATRA EARTHQUAKE ON PLANET EARTH:

  • Strongest earthquake in last 40 years.

  • Tsunami  from epicenter raised the sea level in San Diego by one meter and on Mexico cost by 3 meters on America's western shores 6000 miles away.

  • Floor on the Indian Ocean dived under the Burma plate lifting up the 1000 km long ledge of the Indian plate by 6 m to 15 m.

  • Ground about 250 km away in Burma to Indonesia moved by about a 1 m but resulted in weak to moderate shaking and avoiding massive earthquake destruction expected of 9.0 magnitude tremor.

  • As per NASA, the earthquake shifted the mass towards the earth's centre which may have tilted the earth's axis by about 2. 5 cm creating an additional tilt of about an inch. The Earth's poles travel a circular path that normally varies by about 33 feet, so an added wobble of an inch is likely to cause long-term effects.

  • As per NASA, the earthquake and may have permanently increased the earth's rotation by 3 minimicroseconds (1 millionth of a second) which translates to a day shorter by a fraction of a second.

  • The earthquake sent shockwaves deep into the earth which are being felt 4 days after the incident. These shockwaves study is helping scientists to continue their study the composition of the earth core.

  • 70 aftershocks have occurred since December 26, 2007. The largest occurred about three hours after the main shock and is now assigned a magnitude of 7.1. Thirteen of the aftershocks thus far cataloged have magnitudes of 6.0 or larger. There have been no reports of tsunamis being generated from the aftershocks.

  • The earthquake caused some islands in the area to rise or fall by several metres.

FUTURE EFFECT OF SUMATRA EARTHQUAKE ON PLANET EARTH:

  • How has the occurrence of this earthquake affected the probability of another great earthquake?

    The occurrence of this earthquake will have produced a redistribution of tectonic stresses along and near the boundary between the India plate and the Burma plate. In some areas, this redistribution of stresses will be such as to shorten the time to the next big earthquake compared to what would have been the case if the earthquake had not happened. In other areas, the redistribution of stresses will be such as to increase the time to the next big earthquake. Once the distribution of slip along the earthquake fault has been mapped, it will be possible to estimate the areas that were moved closer to future failure and those that were moved farther from future failure. It is not yet possible, however, to reliably estimate when the future failure will occur in a given area or how large will be the resulting earthquake.

PVAF has presented the currently known science about tsunami and earthquake in the last 4 days together with some thoughts from western civilization expressing God's role in the above natural disaster from Judaism and Buddhism perspectives....

Today PVAF continues to update the science knowledge and the very sad and increasingly humongous life and property toll. The life toll imposed by what is called in veD as pRkRUTi = NATURE and its natural forces also creates and sustains creations life and its needs.... 

PVAF is compiling for publication knowledge of the ly = Decreation that we are witnessing in this disaster by the same forces o pRkRUTi = NATURE....This ly causes DuKH (suffering and pain) of the aDHibhautik and may be aDHidaeevik type as explained in veD = SCIENCES OF CREATION AND LIFE.....aDHibhautik DuKH means suffering and pain from the physical forces of  pRkRUTi = NATURE. aDHidaeevik DuKH means suffering and pain caused by the shk`tio (powers) of  pRkRUTi = NATURE which creates the forces to function as they do.

HEALING TOGETHER....
The catastrophe reminds us once again of
 how helpless humanity is in the face of the power and fury of nature;
which fact should prompt a renewed call
to re-examine the equation between
nature and humankind.
From xinhuanet.com: BEIJING, Dec. 30:
(Source: China Daily): Excerpts from the Daily Star, Bangladesh.

Like everyone else in the region we remain in deep shock at the extent of the devastation and join in the mourning for the lives lost and ruined. The tragic sweep of the havoc that has hit seven Asian countries including Bangladesh leaves us almost speechless with horror and sorrow and we would like to extend our heart-felt sympathy and deepest solidarity with the thousands upon thousands who have lost loved ones and seen their lives shattered.

The event has spurred an international relief effort which must be intensified and co-ordinated so that the harm is minimized. No expense should be spared by the international community to counter this truly international tragedy - and if we all join hands then we can achieve far more by way of relief than if each affected nation operated independently.

The catastrophe reminds us once again of how helpless we are in the face of the power and fury of nature and should prompt a renewed call to re-examine the equation between nature and humankind.

Events such as these teach us clearly that we can no longer afford to ignore the forces of nature and should serve as a wake-up call to us to rebalance our relationship with our environment.

It is abundantly clear that the potential hazards of geological phenomena and the question of how best to minimize such hazards must be brought to the centre stage of global discourse.

On a purely pragmatic level, it is noted that there are early warning systems to provide advance notice of tectonic activity in the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, but that no such system exists for the Indian Ocean. This must be rectified immediately.
