Supposedly, a recently revealed 1945 report from the Office of Strategic Services, the U.S.'s major intelligence agency before the advent of the CIA, reveals that office's research into using nuclear bombs to trigger Tsunamis as a weapon of mass destruction. The "Psychological Warfare Earthquake Plan" doesn't go so far as to state that an earthquake could be created where none was possible before, howver it does state that an expected quake along a fault-line could be 'manually' triggered by strategic placement of an atomic bomb.


www.worldnetdaily.com...
Months before the end of World War II, an American intelligence agency launched a top-secret project aimed at devising ways to trigger massive earthquakes and tsunamis that would wreak havoc among enemy civilian populations, recently uncovered documents reveal.

According to a detailed report, project planners from the Office of Strategic Services, the nation's first intelligence agency and precursor to the CIA, concluded that the United States could use its "new atomic bomb" to trigger massive earthquakes and tsunamis, thus creating "massive destruction, death and unchecked hysteria."

[...]

As the report's subtitle, "Against Japanese Homeland," clearly indicates, the island of Japan was the selected target. Queried the report, "Scientifically can heavy bombing, pinpointed on known earthquake areas, bring about an underground condition within fault sections which would step up the expectancy and possibly bring about a calamitous earthquake in a selected area?"

Answered N. H. Heck, assistant director of the U.S. Coast Geodetic Survey, "This question has been asked several times, so it should receive a serious answer. All that could be applied is trigger force, and this can only advance and set the time for an earthquake which is about to occur. It is conceivable, however, that an explosion at exactly the right time and place might have the correct effect."

A letter cited in the report from the Seismological Laboratory of the University of California to Dr. L.H. Adams of the U.S. Geophysical Laboratory and OSS scientists reads: "… we would have to get (bomb) within less than 5 miles of that place on the fault which is destined to break within a year."


I couldn't find any other sources than the one above.

This may bear relation to the "Tsunami Bomb" experiments off the coast of New Zealand in 1944 and 1945, revealed in the New Zealand Herald.


www.nzherald.co.nz...
Top-secret wartime experiments were conducted off the coast of Auckland to perfect a tidal wave bomb, declassified files reveal.

An Auckland University professor seconded to the Army set off a series of underwater explosions triggering mini-tidal waves at Whangaparaoa in 1944 and 1945.

[...]

Details of the tsunami bomb, known as Project Seal, are contained in 53-year-old documents released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Papers stamped "top secret" show the US and British military were eager for Seal to be developed in the post-war years too. They even considered sending Professor Leech to Bikini Atoll to view the US nuclear tests and see if they had any application to his work.

[...]

Professor Leech, who died in his native Australia in 1973, was the university's dean of engineering from 1940 to 1950.

News of his being awarded a CBE in 1947 for research on a weapon led to speculation in newspapers around the world about what was being developed.

[...]

It is unclear what happened to Project Seal once the final report was forwarded to Wellington Defence Headquarters late in the 1940s.


If anyone can find any further sources relating to the OSS report, please post the info here.

Maybe these will help, wecomeinpeace?

One mentions what you have above and the others explore the possible use of a nuke(s) causing the Indonesian earthquake(s) and tsunami(s).


Tsunami Bomb Developed As Far Back As 1944 (from ATSNN)


Tsunami: an act of terror (Sea Burst)?

Tsunami by Quake? Bomb? Comet? EM?

Some interesting things presented in the above topic threads. Might want to take a few and read them.

as soon as i heard the first rumor about the first tsunami i researched it, it would take a 1gigaton explosion to create the first tsunami.

that is physically impossible at current scientific level.

a smaller blast could have been used to 'trigger' plate slippage, but that would show up on the richter (whatever the name of the device is that measures it) chompie also, not part of the quake.

Thanks Seekerof, I did see the first and third threads you gave me, which included the NZ experiments, but I couldn't see anything in those about the OSS documents. I was hoping to get some specific info on further sources for the OSS report without jumping in the middle of the debate in those threads. But you're right, I'll go and post in one of those threads. Feel free to lock this one.

No, no need to lock.
Please, carry on.
I am looking for more on the OSS report.

No luck, but what I did find was that the "Tsunami Bomb" was actually called Project Seal

This might be helpful in finding more?
Project Seal

Yeah, i looked around with "project seal" and couldn't find any connections to the OSS. I'm a little dubious of the worldnet source for the OSS documents. There's no other mention of them anywhere.

Oh well, dead end for now maybe.

Interesting that Leech, the scientist involved with the tsunami bomb was awarded CBE (Commander of Order of the British Empire) for weapons development in '47. Pretty big hoo-hah over a weapon that supposedly never went beyond the experimental stage...

I'll keep my eyes peeled for you.
When I get back on campus Monday, I snoop around the campus library and see if they have anything. I might hit JSTOR [online electronic catalogue of academic journals] and see if they have anything to say on this.

Btw, after I found the connection between the Tsunami Bomb and Project Seal, I read your article and DOH! it mentioned it. My bust.

On the bright side, my searching skills are still working.

Excellent dh!


Just skimmed the documents. The author appears to be extremely confident, based on tests conducted, that bomb-triggered earthquakes are plausible and achievable.

I'll digest it further after work.

Scientifically, can heavy bombing, pinpointed on known earthquake areas, bring about an underground condition within fault sections which would step up the expectancy and possibly bring about a calamitous earthquake in a selected area? ... "All that could be applied is trigger forcem and this can only advance and set the time for an earthquake which is about to occur. It is conceivable, however, that an explosion at exactly the right time and place might have the correct effect. It would have to be very large and it would be necessary to know where to place it, and the latter cannot be determined at all from outside Japan." ... "we would have to get (bomb) within less than 5 miles of that place on the fault which is destined to break within a year, no help being offered it ... if we could get (bomb) within a mile of a point on a fault destined to break within 90 years we might set it off." ... Impetus is greatly added to the already established scientific plausibility of triggering this earthquake potential by the recent revelation of the atomic bomb. With a manifoldly greater amount of destructive force in a single atomic bomb the plausibility of triggering the earthquake potential is brought further toward the realm of practicality. ... On the basis of the scientific plausibility of triggering this earthquake potential by atomic and large scale intensified bombing lies the foundation for our psychological plan to combine, within the minds of the Japanese, the additional fear of earthquakes being caused by the radio-active destructiveness of the atomic bomb.

Sadly, Joe died suddenly, 17 July, 2005, of "exhaustion of the adrenal glands", in the middle of reporting on the London bombings. The first of his work to disappear from his site was about the use of nukes to trigger tsunamis.

One very interesting document he had scanned on his site was a US report made towards the end of the war on Japan, outlining studies on one way to end the war.

The idea was to use devices, possibly nuclear, in a trench on a seismic fault line near Japan, to cause a massive tsunami over Japan. This had been carefully studied, and was believed to be possible.

Many of Joe's articles, including Did New York Orchestrate The Asian Tsunami? have been reproduced here.

The recent Haitian earthquake makes this thread relevant again, as there is a possibility it too was caused intentionally.

This tsunami bomb and the experimentation by Professor Leech's team during WW2 was covered on a BBC4 documentary about tsunamis recently.

www.bbc.co.uk...

After 4000 experiments it was clear this wouldn't work.

That was a great video. Graphics a bit repetitive, but that aside very informative.

Worth a flag, as it explains so much that has been questioned on ATS, not just the failed bomb idea.

Atlantis, Dividing of the Red Sea, Los Palma and it's possible landslip threat as well as the disappearance of the Dinosaurs.

It should be on a topic of it's own.

You do realize not one of you sources mentions we just ended the war by dropping two nukes? Why waste the time causing an earthquake or tsunami when you can just directly and openly kill them?
