We constructed a postseismic slip (afterslip) distribution model using surface displacement data observed by the GPS Earth Observation Network System (GEONET) for the 2011 off the Pacific coast of Tohoku Earthquake.
Eastward displacements are observed along the Pacific coast from Aomori Prefecture to Chiba Prefecture.
The observed postseismic displacement partly includes crustal deformation due to aftershocks.
A postseismic slip expands in and around the inferred coseismic slip area . In particular, relative large slips are estimated in the northwest and in the south (off Choshi) of the coseismic slip area.
Add this video of the earth moving and bulging in Japan, dutchsinse‘s hypothesis appears to be close to the truth.
In my wanderings, I ran across statements made about Edgar Cayce predicting that Japan would sink into the ocean. I am still searching for the exact prediction, but wanted to get this information out.
Either way, the video above and Dutchsinse’s video is more than a little bit disturbing.
Is anybody hearing about the volcanic eruptions in Japan?

I would like to let Practical Madman know that he has absolutely and thoroughly scared the bejesus out of the Monster (that takes some doing) with the following video. If dutchsinse‘s hypothesis that Japan may be collapsing into the ocean is even partially true, the resulting tsunami will wash over the Hawaiian islands and much of the west coast of the mainland (not to mention other parts of the world). In the meantime, check out his attached links and hit his channel for some up-to-date information about the world earthquakes and the radiation dispersal patterns.
Japan is collapsing? hypothesis – animation and presentation of the data
2226: The Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper, quoting a senior official of the ruling Democratic Party of Japan, said the US made the offer immediately after the disaster damaged Fukushima No 1 nuclear plant. According to the unnamed senior official, US support was based on dismantling the troubled reactors run by Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) some 250 km (155 miles) northeast of Tokyo. However, the government and TEPCO thought the cooling system could be restored by themselves, the report said.
Our government demanded that the Japanese dismantle – that is, permanently remove – over five gigawatts of power in order to help them with a critical safety problem that had the potential to destroy 100 square miles of land and kill or injure thousands of people?
That as compensation for helping them we demanded that they cripple their electrical generating capacity on a permanent basis?
You have to be kidding me.
This is an extremely serious charge. If it’s true it stands alone as grounds for impeachment and dismembering every single federal agency involved.
Perhaps this explains why the US Military and/or civilian authorities didn’t stick a couple of big-ass generators on a transport plane and get them over there, restoring power to the reactors within hours of the incident and avoiding all of the serious radiation and physical damage at the plant.
This allegation is ridiculously incendiary and demands an immediate and complete Congressional investigation. Not only do the citizens of the United States deserve to know the truth (or falsity) of this charge (and who initiated it if it is false), but so do the Japanese people.
If this is how this man treats our friends – attempting to use a crisis threatening the lives of civilians to score a political point and advance his “green” agenda…..
Incidentally there are reports that The State Department has denied the original story from the Japanese paper. I still argue we need answers – real ones – and an immediate Congressional investigation is called for.
Incidentally, Karl is right on target about an investigation, and I am wondering if Darrell Issa has heard about this yet?
Aloha all! Drudge Report has all the details on the massive 8.9 Mag. earthquake that has hit northern Japan. Here in the islands we are getting ready for the first tsunami wave forecast for 3am. I will check back in with more information as necessary. Do not worry about the Monster and RedLemur; we are prepared.
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – A Tsunami Warning has been issued for the State of Hawaii by the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center. The first of several waves resulting from a severe earthquake off Honshu Japan is expected to arrive in the State at approximately 2:55 a.m.
Tsunamis pose a serious threat to ALL coastal areas of Oahu; repeat ALL coastal areas of Oahu. Residents living in coastal tsunami evacuation zones on Oahu as identified in the maps in the front of the telephone white page directory should begin evacuation immediately when outdoor warning sirens sound.
UPDATE: Alii Drive in Kona (Big Island) has taken damage. Big Island residents are still under evacuation order while the damage is being assessed.
