It looks like the old coastline is still under water. It seems Japan sunk a little bit.

OH MY GOD!!! 2310: More from the Tokyo Electric Power Company: It says the ability to control pressure in some of the reactors at Fukushima-Daini has been lost. Pressure is stable inside the reactors, but rising in the containment vessels, a company spokesman says.

Hi all,

This is my first post on ATS, has been very interesting getting everyone's thoughts on the ongoing EQ`s present in are seemingly fragile earth. Do we have a number of how many EQ`s actually hit today 11-03-2011



"expert" guy on boob tube earlier said thousands. Most very minor. So dont everyone start jumping on me....Also. Where are you guys getting this info that that quake was a 9.1 instead of 8.9??? Can someone post a credible source please???

Tokyo Electric Power Co. says it has lost control of pressure in 2 nuclear power reactors; temps rising huff.to... #jpquake


or could be the same one with 2 reactors
edit on 11-3-2011 by GullibleUnderlord because: (no reason given)

Well, seems like they haven't any other solution to release some radioactive vapor in the atmosphere to lowering the pressure...

Both. With a bit of middle ground.

no not true its been updated to a 9.1 a long time ago

When was the magnitude raised? You shouldn't get too bent out of shape at Fox or CNN or any other news agency for not updating the magnitude. Perhaps they're not aware or only one entity has done so.

You better believe that the news agencies would be chomping at the bit to be able to raise the magnitude! It makes the doom and gloom that much worse.

9.1 ?
I am wondering about the footage that is being fed out to the public like this for instance:


It makes it seem as if it is not that bad inland...

And thoughts on this?

It cant get back out into the ocean quickly because of the terrain. Think of the bathtub effect. Like what happened in New Orleans...I doubt if it sunk......

The China Syndrome is the scientific theory that as a result of a nuclear meltdown in which molten reactor core products breach the barriers below them and flow downwards through the floor of the containment building. i don't know if this can really happen , or is it just a theory

And apparently, someone in a crane on the side of the stacks cannot be contacted.

They have over 50 Nuclear plants in Japan, and the problem that I am having is that even a meltdown does explode, and when it does wont it take more nuclear plants since there isn't much for miles in between them all?


Hello!!! Yes... I want to know this too. If all of that comes in contacted with water what are we looking at?

But that's what a subduction zone does, pushes one plate under another, eh? Japan could "sink."

Well you gotta think that the buildings in Japan are going to have been built to withstand earthquakes. As such, buildings just aren't going to be crumbling and falling over.

Actually, it's the theory that the molten nuclear material would travel all the way through it's containment and through the core of the earth to the other side. This is of course impossible because of gravity and the fact that the molten core of the earth is pretty much molten nuclear material already.

I know he's managed to stay out of this thread so far, but it sure would be nifty-keen to have one of puterman's graphs showing energy release for the main quake in comparison to energy release for all of the aftershocks.

I have been glued to this thread all day and am thankful for all of those who have posted substantive information and the links backing it up. I have been able to track progress and keep informed as a result.

If the plate that Japan is sitting on has tipped enough to change the coastline, and it's in an unnatural position, what happens when it decides to snap back into place?

Am seriously happy that the activity in Yellowstone turned out to not be what had first been feared.
