will be re-covered. It will be interesting to see what this earthquake and tsunami will have done to the underwater landscape around Japan.
No, the large fractured basalt blocks (as your source says they are... they're not a city (no windows, no doors, etc.)) haven't changed much with
the earthquakes. They can crack and shatter with earthquakes, but I sort of expect the same kind of "plane of cleaving" (straight square chips
being knocked off) if any changes have happened.
In that area the Pacific plate is diving under another plate, and there isn't any basalt flowing up out of the cracks there at this time. So right
now, no new structures are being formed.
