This report is the 1st that I've heard of this incredible event but apparently evidence is accumulating that the huge Indo-Australian plate has begun
the process of cracking apart into 2 new and distinct plates.
YOU may not have felt it, but the whole world shuddered on 11 April, as Earth's crust began the difficult process of breaking a tectonic plate.
It would seem that 11 April was the starting point of the breakup when ...
... two huge earthquakes ripped through the floor of the Indian Ocean
These earthquakes measured 8.2 and 8.6 and were located off the coast of North Sumatra.
Also, the implication is that because of those 2 earthquakes that may have initiated the plate splitting, that many of the following aftershocks along
other faults around the world were triggered as a direct response.
... they triggered large aftershocks on faults the world over, and provided the best evidence yet that the vast Indo-Australian plate is being torn in
In my opinion, this is mind-boggling news to digest as I've always thought of the individual continental plates as being relatively stable over
millions of years and yet here we have one of the largest plates apparently in the process of breaking apart into 2 individual plates ... not in a
million years time but NOW !
I wonder how having 2 smaller plates instead of one huge plate will affect the dynamics and stability of all the other plates around the world ?
Surely the realignment and redistribution of stresses must mean that there will be considerably more earthquakes in total and more larger magnitude
earthquakes than usual until the entire global plate system restabilizes in a new configuration status and redistributes the stress created by the
