I think it was a separate quake caused by the release on tension from the 8.9 pushing on the pacific plate. It would seem that the island of Japan just moved farther out to sea than it was the day before. Though I'm no seismologist.

Anyone got links to this hole ripped in the Earth from the quake?

2.50 mtr ..further to the ocean...

just means the ground ripped apart, like with most big quakes

David Applegate, a senior science adviser for earthquake and geologic hazards for the U.S. Geological Survey, said the 8.9-magnitude quake ruptured a patch of the earth's crust 150 miles (240 kilometers) long and 50 miles (80 kilometers) across.

What kind of effects would that have then ? Never heard of this before. What are the repercussions ?Did they talk about that at all ?


If I remember correctly, it could cause a new fault line.

Keep in mind that the nuclear reactor that we have been told repeatedly is fine....

Has technicians working on it during 5-6 mag aftershocks. The reactor piping was probably damaged during the main quake, as it was built to withstand a 7.5 mag EQ. Who knows what terrible conditions they are facing while trying to get coolant flowing again, if that is even feasible. After too much heat and pressure builds up, the introduction of water back into the system would cause an explosion.

Yes, but the piping has been designed to withstand a bleve, there are release valves that can prevent the massive pressures from building. The resulting radioactive water vapor is then condensed in tanks
There has been recent mention of release to atmosphere.

There is no telling what damage may have been done to the containment buildings.

I think that's what caused the large tsunami, all the water rushing in to fill the gap and then pushing back towards land.

wow wow wow... 1940: The 8.9-magnitude earthquake which struck Japan on Friday was the strongest in the area in nearly 1,200 years, David Applegate, a senior science adviser at the US Geological Survey, tells the Associated Press. He says the quake ruptured a patch of the earth's crust 240km (150 miles) long and 80km (50 miles) across.

Should ATS start a new thread to show fake donation sites or corrupt organizations asking for donations? ATS did a pretty good job of bring attention to the corrupt and illegal ones in Haiti.


Surely worth it if there's a chance any people scamming off this can be stopped.

I think it is because Chernobyl was in the process of nuclear fusion, thus creating a far greater intense pressure. From their (the IAEA) rough idea a potential meltdown would literally just melt away - not create the intense burning fire and huge explosion that ripped about Chernobly.

A potential comparison was made to nuclear disaster in America (cannot remember the place, forgive me)


Chernobyl was not a fusion reactor, it was a fission reactor like all other nuclear power plants in the world. Fusion is still experimental and is not used for power generation.


Chernobyl was a bonehead military fission production reactor design made from a huge uncontained pile of burnable graphite (carbon, similar to barbecue charcoal) with an enriched uranium core. Once it caught fire, the core went up in smoke.

Japan's reactors are NOT so stupid. At risk for meltdown like Three Mile Island? Yes. But up in smoke like Chernobyl? No.

Having said that, prayer is certainly not inappropriate right now.

It's false I think, I haven't seen anything on the news about an earthquake off the coast of Mexico.

So no whale hunting this weekend? Makes you wonder if man is destroying one the largest animals in the world then maybe nature will respond in a big way too.

Not sure why that came to mind, it kind of makes ironic sense I guess.

ISOTOPE to be released from nuclear waste plant is NITROGEN-16 - has a half life of 5 seconds decays to oxygen in the atmosphere, so is considered safe says Nuclear Physicist Professor Paddy Regan on Sky News.

Sounds reassuring.

Why do I feel this isn't over yet...

I want to take this moment to thank ALL ATS'ers for being who you are. I am currently at work (I own a store) and I have been asking my customers what they think about the Earthquake/Tsunami and the strong aftershocks that Japan is experiencing... most people don't even know yet. Nor do they know the extent of damage that was done, especially during the Tsunami.

Its because of the people here at ATS who follow this stuff very closely that I am able to pass along valuable information to people who are very concerned.

Watching GEE of a couple of Japan's monitoring stations. It is rocking over there, every few minutes new earthquakes. Another one just now. Pretty good size.
