Just a correction for you.

The unit "Rads" is still used in the states. Gy is used everywhere else.
Its not used to describe contamination levels. Its used to determine absorbed dose.

Did another Tsunami hit Japan. That's what I think CNN is saying but I'm not sure.

Its so damn depressing to think that not too long ago some of these places were just small villages or towns...I can't even begin to imagine how much these people have lost and having to watch everything wash away.

and I sure hope the engineers get this meltdown situation under control...I don't want Fallout: New Jersey pt II

i remember for the indonesian quake/tsunami, there was a point where just before the tsunami hit the water retreated quite a bit like it was being pulled back. Was that because the epicentre was further from the land? I guess this didn't happen this time around?

i think all tsunamis start with the water retreating back into the ocean because the tectonic plates shift and create cracks in the earth which suck water down. the pressure shoots the water back out which results in the giant waves

the energy of the tsunami is created by the fault suddenly breaking free, and one part springs up. forcing a large volume of water upwards. as the energy moves outwards from that point, it is invisible on the surface in deep water, which is also where it travels fastest. (as fast as a commercial jetliner)

when the energy reaches shallow water, it slows down, and transfers the forward momentum, to vertical. this is where the wave takes its most memorable form. as the wave is now starting to grow in height, it needs to take the water from somewhere. it draws it in from the beach to feed its growth essentially.

i am no expert in the field, but that is how i understand the workings of a tsunami... feel free to correct my if my info is off =o
