...thats a REALLY cute pup on your avatar... ...on topic - so, uh, the tsunami traveled 8000 miles at 444+mph?... can they sustain that speed for 18hours?... did i do the math right?... ...seems like, if this report is true, there wouldve been a lot of losses in shipping lanes that we wouldve heard about long before now...
as long as the ice is floating freely in the water and is not grounded it does not matter if some of it is above the sea level it will have displaced all the water it is going to. think about it like this does the water support the entire weight of a ship or just the portion below the water line much of the ice on Greenland and Antarctica is not in the water and will indeed raise the sea level significantly if it should happen to make it into the ocean
Ice caps in antartica experience bigger waves on a dailly bases, waves bigger, and stronger than the tsunami from Japan could and would have ever caused . So therefore i beleive the story to be false in its assumptions
If the cavesystems was big enough yes. But its unlikely a island could stay above water on thin pillars of land/rock/stone.....Then again it might be able to brake of a big chunk of land if its a huge cavesystem. Offcause this landmass wouldent float away like some new island but would crumble into the smashed cavesystem...maybe create a mudflood.

Thanks I never knew Antarctica gets waves bigger than what the tsunami caused, can you please explain how and why this happens? How exactly do they get waves much bigger and stronger than what the tsunami carried???
