What *IS* ocurring is the following ...
In the pacific ocean, there is a rift that opens and lava is filling it up ... as it does this, it pushes on the ocean floor which is a thinned
crustal plate. As it pushes the ocean floors, they push against the continents, which preassure as the continents crumble over the ocean floor.
There is no subduction, to talk about ... the continents when under this preassure, squeeze and crumble, causing the continents line to slowly but
surely flatten out into the ocean. Thinning this part of the continental crust, while the mainland inland crust experiences buildup underneath it, of
new pathways for lavaflow underneat.
This differs from the classical view, that the ocean floor is moving under the continents. It's the other way around, the continents are
"collapsing" over the oceanfloors.
Tsunamis will happen, when the coastal line collapses towards the oceanfloor ...
