hi Neo Vain...

the question U pose...What would happen if Elenin crashes into the sea?

the answer... It would SINK like the rest of the Elenin "theories"...

You should wander over to GLP and read some of my posts. They make the article on scribd and Terral's works look like chicken scratchings. Exhaustive, complex, and fully annotated.-------------

That's because the article on scribd and Terral's work are chicken scratchings. Incidentally, if you have something to share, please do it here. So far all you've posted on ATS has been pointless one-liners.

These are the reuslts I got from the simulator, it would not be a global killer, but would create a huge tsunami.

Your Inputs:
Distance from Impact: 805.00 km ( = 500.00 miles )
Projectile diameter: 5.00 km ( = 3.11 miles )
Projectile Density: 1000 kg/m3
Impact Velocity: 20.00 km per second ( = 12.40 miles per second )
Impact Angle: 45 degrees
Target Density: 1000 kg/m3
Target Type: Liquid water of depth 3.8 km ( = 2.4 miles ), over crystalline rock.
Energy before atmospheric entry: 1.31 x 1022 Joules = 3.13 x 106 MegaTons TNT
The average interval between impacts of this size somewhere on Earth during the last 4 billion years is 1.1 x 107years
Major Global Changes:
The Earth is not strongly disturbed by the impact and loses negligible mass.
The impact does not make a noticeable change in the tilt of Earth's axis (< 5 hundreths of a degree).
The impact does not shift the Earth's orbit noticeably.
Crater Dimensions:
What does this mean?

The crater opened in the water has a diameter of 44 km ( = 27.3 miles ).

For the crater formed in the seafloor:
Transient Crater Diameter: 14.5 km ( = 8.99 miles )
Transient Crater Depth: 5.12 km ( = 3.18 miles )

Final Crater Diameter: 20.6 km ( = 12.8 miles )
Final Crater Depth: 736 meters ( = 2410 feet )
The crater formed is a complex crater.
The volume of the target melted or vaporized is 4.88 km3 = 1.17 miles3
Roughly half the melt remains in the crater, where its average thickness is 29.7 meters ( = 97.3 feet ).
Thermal Radiation:
What does this mean?

The fireball is below the horizon. There is no direct thermal radiation.
Seismic Effects:
What does this mean?

The major seismic shaking will arrive approximately 2.68 minutes after impact.
Richter Scale Magnitude: 8.1
Mercalli Scale Intensity at a distance of 805 km:

III. Felt quite noticeably by persons indoors, especially on upper floors of buildings. Many people do not recognize it as an earthquake. Standing motor cars may rock slightly. Vibrations similar to the passing of a truck.

IV. Felt indoors by many, outdoors by few during the day. At night, some awakened. Dishes, windows, doors disturbed; walls make cracking sound. Sensation like heavy truck striking building. Standing motor cars rocked noticeably.

What does this mean?

The ejecta will arrive approximately 7.27 minutes after the impact.
At your position there is a fine dusting of ejecta with occasional larger fragments
Average Ejecta Thickness: 751 microns ( = 29.6 thousandths of an inch )
Mean Fragment Diameter: 529 microns ( = 20.8 thousandths of an inch )

Air Blast:
What does this mean?

The air blast will arrive approximately 40.7 minutes after impact.
Peak Overpressure: 22700 Pa = 0.227 bars = 3.22 psi
Max wind velocity: 48.9 m/s = 109 mph
Sound Intensity: 87 dB (Loud as heavy traffic)
Damage Description:

Glass windows will shatter.

About 30 percent of trees blown down; remainder have some branches and leaves blown off.

Tsunami Wave:
What does this mean?

The impact-generated tsunami wave arrives approximately 1.2 hours after impact.

Tsunami wave amplitude is between: 84.3 meters ( = 276.0 feet) and 169.0 meters ( = 553.0 feet).

I hope we do pass through Elenin's tail or remains and get a meteor shower. I have seen one before
I think it was Halleys comet that we passed through back in the 90's. Back when I still had enough
brain cells left to remember stuff like that
We were all gonna die back then as well, man
that was a party, and then there was Hale bopp but I aint going there

I don't think we'd even notice if it hit somewhere deep in the much of it would burn off and even if it didn't burn off, the heat of it going through the atmosphere then colliding with water would split the hydrogen creating a above the surface explosion..It'd probably be like a small nuclear blast but we never noticed when they were testing BIG bombs... so I doubt we'd notice that.

It's because it's the Holy Grail of a unified conspiracy theory. People were able to link this aliens, Nibiru, Calleman's Mayan calendar, 9/11, NASA, and even EU hypothesis. If these people finally admit that Elenin is just a harmless little comet it will mean that they pretty much wasted a year of their life chasing down a false lead. It's a classic case of cognitive dissonance. It's easier for the brain to come up with the most implausible scenarios than to admit that it was wrong about a belief.

Indeed! Cognitive dissonance is rampant on the board! Well stated!
