I found this interesting analysis of the Japanese earthquake at the atomic engineering forum. It has photos so i post the link

Was the Japanese earthquake triggered by Japanese atomic bomb test detonation?

I’m no expert but common sense tells me that one would have to go down a ridiculous depth and place a nuke in a very precise position to trigger an earthquake and even then I’m not sure such precision is possible given that nobody on Earth can predict earthquakes.

Do you think the Japanese were testing nuclear weapons back in 1923, when an earthquake killed 140,000? I’ll bet someone at the physics forum could explain about plate tectonics.

They were not around during the 1950's and 1960's.

If they were right, Nevada and Southern Siberia would be now folded into the center of the earth.

Welcome to FR. I am sure that the article about Nuclear Engineers discussing a nuclear bomb test would have been interesting, and probably would have had a few tin foil hats tossed in the thread.

Please correct the link. I have not seen the most recent tin foil hats displayed. After all, fashions do change periodically.

My wife had an interesting theory. If you suddenly pop up the North American plate, you might get a cavity or two below that water could drain into. The other theory is that the crutal motion that produced the tsunami also created large turbulence with crosscurrents, not unlike tornado formation, hence a funnel. I like the cavity theory because it’s scarier, but the turbulence theory is probably correct.

The first naval reactor using nuclear power was started in 1953. There have been no nuclear accidents on US Naval vessels ever.

It would take one HUGE nuke to do create that size of wave and produce all that damage. Larger than what is in any inventory in any country.

The logistics of drilling a hole big enough and deep enough to place a device with enough yield to do such damage would have been detected.

This stuff is total fantasy.

It's called cropping a photo so that you can't see the structures causing an eddy to form.

It's called an eddy. It's caused when the main current goes one way but something causes a portion to peel off and go the other way. In this case, the something was structures cropped from the photo.

If you look at the video of that vortex, you'll see that it formed between two breakwaters that were far apart on the landward end and close together on the seaward end. It also formed when water from earlier waves was draining out at the same time that water from new waves was coming in.

Sounds like a good vortex generator to me -- especially if the incoming waves entered the narrow opening at an angle...

Actually the whirlpool is easy to explain.

First, find a larger area picture of the whirlpool - they seem to be purposely cropped to make look like open sea...

There’s a sea wall near this forming a harbor (or protected water area) with an opening on one end to the open sea. When the tsunami water went rushing by the open end it spun the water in the harbor forming a whirlpool.

Was the Japanese earthquake triggered by Japanese atomic bomb test detonation?

No, silly.

It was caused by super-powered quake rays shot from the weapon built into Quasimar's hand.

Quasimar is very wily.

Do you really want to know what triggered that earthquake and tsunami? It was that fat @$$ michael moron [moore] demonstrating in MI with the anti American unions. The earth could not support all the idiots in that place, and it is almost exactly on the opposite side of the globe.
