Well I gotta say this is truly incredible. Quite a big difference from previous reports of land based data.
Just goes to show the astonishing power and capability of that power caused, by an EQ of that magnitude.

Heres the link...
Instruments saw Japan quake lurch

Kinda puts you on edge knowing the next big one could happen at anytime.
Lets hope future predictions are wrong because some massive quakes are penned on that list.
Its rarely reported on these days but the extent of the Japan disaster is very wide reaching and I just hope the people there arent being kept in the dark as much as we although chances are thats exactly the case.
Once again good luck to the people of Japan.

This is frightening.

Here is a link to another article about it : Daily Mail Online

'The scale is almost double that estimated only from the terrestrial data,' Dr Sato told BBC News. Under the seabed, the movement may have been even greater - perhaps 160 to 200 feet, by some estimates. In another study sure to raise alarm in Japan, scientists from the California Institute of Technology have reconstructed how the Tohuku-Oki earthquake unfolded using GPS data recorded at more than 1,200 sites. Their data showed that - contrary to previous opinion - the area had built up massive amounts of strain prior to the earthquake.

The news just keeps getting worse for Japan...
