Omen? Waters near Osaka bay Japan turn pale yellow

June 13, 2012 – JAPAN - At this moment, people in Osaka and Kobe are tweeting the color of Osaka bay looks strange. From the picture, it looks pale yellow. One follower on the site tweeted: “Moving from parents house to Mikage. Osaka bay looked yellowish when I saw from an eminence. Am afraid it’s a sign.” From local citizens, it became strange color before the great Hanshin earthquake (1995) as well. They might need to stay informed just in case........

I was thinking about the Chinese yellow haze, and then I see someone on your source thought of the same thing.


Correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t China experiencing some kind of haze right now that’s the same color? Could be very significant.


Of course, it could just be algae, but that is an ugly looking bay. Combine that with the fishkill, and if I were a resident there I would be very worried.

What is it suppose to be?

Sulfur or something?

I don't see any info about testing or anything. Strange.
If anyone finds any updates please share, I'd like to know if this is an optical illusion or something more worrisome.

possibly sulfur. Normally happens before volcanic events. Should be interesting.

Yeah I saw this on Fukushima news blog,.
that number 4 reactor cooling pool is my concern.
I also read the the number 1 reactor has been reading an increase in
hydrogen..that place it a frickin time bomb waiting for a big quake to set it off.

I don't know I would imagine if it was sulfur then the smell would be noted more than the color.

Which makes me think the discoloration may be more likely to be caused by disturbed sediment or phytoplankton

Found an Osaka webcam which shows the water.

link

It is located at 34.64 ° north, 135.42 ° east, which puts it on the Trade Center Island, looking north towards some other docks. Not the best view of the bay, but does show water, which is NOT yellow at all.

Thanks for the post, and good points.

Sulfur does have quite a scent. I don't see any mention of that, so maybe it is more likely eutrophication (wiki) of some sort. Good call.

Need to put some samples under analysis to find out for sure what's going though.

We're quake heads. We don't do "yellow."

Pollen and sulfur are yellow. But sulfur stinks and pollen doesn't. No stinky= no sulfur. Therefore, no supervolcano will be opening up to destroy Japan.

Check the eutrophication wiki above, it links large fish kills through hypoxia (wiki).


Eutrophication (Greek: eutrophia—healthy, adequate nutrition, development; German: Eutrophie) or more precisely hypertrophication, is the ecosystem response to the addition of artificial or natural substances, such as nitrates and phosphates, through fertilizers or sewage, to an aquatic system.[1] One example is the "bloom" or great increase of phytoplankton in a water body as a response to increased levels of nutrients. Negative environmental effects include hypoxia, the depletion of oxygen in the water, which induces reductions in specific fish and other animal populations. Other species (such as Nomura's jellyfish in Japanese waters) may experience an increase in population that negatively affects other species.


Interesting coincidence as Nomura's Jellyfish is from this region. However I don't think it's jellyfish that are coloring the bay waters, but rather as stated above, a sediment runoff or an algae/bacteria/plankton bloom.

Unless of course it turns out to be sulfur after all. Anyways a few more links:
anoxic event
algal bloom
Milky seas effect
euphotic zone
plankton

Oh and check this link out especially:
Spring Bloom

Pollen is a good suggestion thanks.

Incidentally the dust forecast is "Extreme" 10 (highest rating) in Osaka all week long...

Damn't nature, leave Japan alone! I've been so impressed with the Japanese people in dealing with crisis. They really could use a break. I don't know if it's indicative of a future quake, but yellow water = bad in my book.

Sea turning yellow ? then it is sulfur gas mixed with the water
it could be a major sign of trouble ahead

a volcano about to erupt and there is certainly some earthquake that will follow

Until the reports come in of "everybody is smelling rotten eggs in the whole area" then no. Just...no.

Sadly, I think this has to do with the tsunami. When it receded back into the ocean, it pulled billions of tons of sediments with all kinds of nutrient rich chemicals which would settle on the ocean floors and getting the currents. Fertilizers and all kinds of nitrates are there for algae to eat and multiple. There will be large blooms. This is a guess based on almost no information so I'm open, but think it's algae.

On the live webcam there is NO yellow showing.

I'm calling hoax.

sure interesting, but horrible as well.


i hope everyone sees the sign if it means something.



i hope nobody suffers, if something bad happens, like a volcano or something.


i would feel more sad and worried, and less interested though.


poor Japan

peace.
