Powerful tsunami on Australian east coast is inevitable – Australian Tsunami Research Centre

Powerful tsunami on Australian east coast is inevitable – Australian Tsunami Research Centre

  • AS recently as 500 years ago tsunamis more powerful than any in recent centuries swept the South Pacific and experts believe even bigger waves will come and almost certainly hit Australia’s east coast.

James Goff, one of the world’s foremost authorities on tsunamis, said lessons can be learned from history.

“There will definitely be bigger events than we have ever known and it is inevitable that a significant tsunami will hit eastern Australia,” Professor Goff, director of the Australian Tsunami Research Centre, told a Melbourne conference.

While the understanding of tsunamis is relatively simplistic, Prof Goff said there is enough knowledge to make certain conclusions possible.

One of the certainties is that in 1460 a massive volcano near Vanuatu collapsed, releasing forces 10 times that experienced when the Indonesian volcanic island of Krakatoa exploded in 1883.

The Krakatoa explosion is regarded as the most violent volcanic eruption in modern recorded history, resulting in tsunamis that killed an estimated 40,000 people.

The explosion is estimated to be around 13,000 times as powerful as the atomic bomb that devastated Hiroshima, and was heard 5000 kilometres away.

According to Prof Goff, it was a comparative tiddler.

“The two events in the 15th century were far bigger than Krakatoa, and there are others more than 2000 years ago that we know were at least twice as big,” he said at the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) conference.

Prof Goff said such things are facts.

What can’t be predicted is when they might happen again.

“The really exciting stuff is we’re realising that we’re getting bigger events than we thought possible from places we hadn’t thought of,” he said.

“The place we don’t know enough about historically is the east coast of Australia.

“But we know that there are huge events to come, and they will come here.”

One response to “Powerful tsunami on Australian east coast is inevitable – Australian Tsunami Research Centre

    Respected sir,
    My name is P.V.Ram Kumar, I had created a project on TSUNAMI sir it’s completely a civil constructional project. The main intention of creating this project is to save the millions of the people’s lives and avoid the destructions which are created by the gigantic waves.
    Because of this TSUNAMI many of them where losing their lives. Some of them where losing their parents, children, friends, etc… unnecessary. Even many of the well developed countries where also facing the problem because of the TSUNAMI’s. My intention is to make no more destruction which were created by the tsunami and protect the entire coastal area and save the people’s lives from the tsunami waves. Recently because of the tsunami in the JAPAN many of the people lost the lives.
    About the project:
    The entire project will be constructed under the sand. So that it will not cause any problem to the natural look of the seashore as it is the very important for the coastal areas. There will be lots of applications with this project to the people and even the government also. We can construct even the shopping malls, film theatres, IT complex, etc…
    We can even create the new world with this project. There will be lots of advantages even for the government also as per the military aspect (to store the weapons like rocket launchers, missiles, guns, helicopters etc… the protection level will also be very much high in the coastal areas also.

    Working details about the project:
    As I told you that you that we will be constructing the entire project under the sand. We will be using the “wave watchdog” system so that as soon as we get the intimation the layers which where constructed with a height of 7-8 meters will be lifted totally we will be having 6-8 layers for each section so that they will be lifted 40-45 meters from the sea level so that as soon as the waves comes it will strike these layers and the entire energy will be distributed to the commercial section and the protection task will be completed sir. Actually it is very difficult to explain this project through this text message. If you like this project I will explain you in detail sir. I am sending even some of the photos about the constructional details sir.

    Sir please help me sir in order to transfer the entire message to the entire work sir .It will be taking lots of time for me to convey this message to the entire world. Sir if you do this work millions of the lives can be saved and we can make mo more destructions which were created by the tsunami’s sir I am requesting you sir. I am not laying sir it took 4 years for me to complete this project sir. I am once again requesting you sir please help me.

    Save the earth from the TSUNAMI.
