    Unfortunately, the disasters there are far worse than what we are being told. My heart goes out to the people there. My tiny imagined problems PALE in comparison to what they will be dealing with for Many, Many years to come

    This video was actually shot shortly after the Sendai EQ and it's an amazing show of a rare process known as liquefaction where tightly packed soil is broken apart by an EQ so that water seeps through it. A lot of the damage from the EQ was in fact from this phenomenon.

    It's nice to know that people are still worried about Japan, but it isn't sinking! :eek: The video is very old and these areas will have settled properly now

    Well, the earth is made up of 3 layers - The Core, The Mantle and The Crust.

    The crust is where we live and it is about 60kms deep ( varies from one location to another ). And crust is solid but the layers underneath the crust are in a molten state.

    The Mantle is made up of Iron, which gives us the magnetic effect etc. The iron in the mantle is a molten state because of the intense heat coming from the Core of the earth. The core is made up of a lot of elements and NO ONE knows much about the core. No equipment or human has ever been able to get to the core. The temperature rises so fast that no drill and no equipment can last more than a mile in the mantle itself.

    The molten iron in the mantle creates Lava which actually is the reason why we have volcanoes. The Volcanoes play an important part in mainitaining the equilibrium by venting out the extra pressure formed in the Mantle, by venting out the lava. Btw, the easiest way to reach the mantle is thru a volcano.

    There A LOT of volcanoes under the ocean. We might not know about them but they can be really active. What you see here in the video could be happening because of the following reason:

    The earthquake that jolted Japan in March, actually opened a new path or vent for the hot molten liquids i.e. Lava to reach the crust. And since, the land is reclaimed, there is water underneath the land you see in the video. Now, when the water comes in contact with Lava, it vaporises due to intense heat. And that, causes the extremely hot steam + water to actually tear apart the crust ( land ) and come out. As you can see, the water coming out of the land is at most places with a lot pressure. And it is Black! Water + Lava = Dark Greyish paste + steam.

    I am no Geologist but, I would recommend the people living in that area to evacuate immediately. Right now what you see is just a preview or a trailer of what is to come, if the volcanic activity increases in future, people will NOT have time to even get to their cars and before they know it, they will be drowning in a sea of hot water and lava.

    The way the land floats it's incredible.

    I can't believe this..:eek:

    It is a very good guess, but it actually is soil liquefaction. The water is black/dark because it is flowing through soil and volcanic ash underground (this is what the land in these areas are made from). Certain areas in Japan are more susceptible than others due to the type of soil they have.

    This particular video was shot in an area where most of the land is composed of mostly sand (taken from Tokyo Bay) and volcanic ash packed together. It is obviously a recipe for disaster!

    Urayasu (Tokyo Disneyland) was hit so hard by liquefaction that it looks like something out of a science fiction novel--everything is twisted and warped, and things are just "sunk" everywhere. It will take many years to rebuild. :(

    Thank you Mokodoki for letting us know what it really is. Well, I never knew that this video is not that recent and what soil liquefaction is.

    Btw, during soil liquefaction the underground water seaps through the soil right? So, in the video where that guy says it is Sea water coming out, it is correct, right?

    Sadly, yes! In some areas, it is just the loosely packed water between soil particles or underground water reservoirs, but this video is taken on reclaimed/man-built land so it's actually the sea moving beneath them. It's horrible that for all of their other planning, they did not see fit to properly pack down and reinforce the soil before they built on it due to building expenses.

    Tokyo Disneyland only survived because they did this before building the park! Otherwise, they would've sunk with everything else. :( They are being very nice though and letting nearby residents who had homes destroyed or displaced stay in their hotels and use their bathing facilities for very cheap.

    I hope they overcome all these natural disasters as early as possible. Too bad
