ZetaTalk: Indonesia Volcanoes

Written October 23, 2010

The collision between Burma Plate and Indian Plate will get fiercer due to subduction of the Indo-Australian Plate to Eurasion Plate, as the momentum will also push the India Plate. Not only that, between Sumatra and Java (Sunda Straits) sit the Krakatoa volcanoes. And Krakatao was first formed by the subduction of the Indo-Australia Plate under the Eurasian Plate. "Krakatau is ... directly above the subduction zone of the Eurasian Plate and the Indo-Australian Plate where the plate boundaries make a sharp change of direction, possibly resulting in an unusually weak crust in the region." (Wikipedia) Surely overall these would be horrifying for Sumatra and Java, being not solid rocks but clutter, a jumble. So, it seems that we're going to have not only tsunami (Sumatra) and hurricanes (especially when a plate shifts, does it not create hurricanes?), but also volcanic eruptions (another tsunami in the case of significant Krakatoas eruption). I can imagine how unimaginably horrible the overall outcomes would be with plates dropping and rising putting volcanoes, sensitive to these kind of movements, on highly active mode, if it is so. In the last ZetaTalk Newsletter, The Zetas have indicated that no predictor as to how soon the bending and the dropping will happen for dramatic 7 of 10 to occur other than the direction of plate movement which can observed from the sinking of Jakarta, Pakistan, and Coral Sea rising. If I don't mistakenly take it literally, it seems that a dramatic Krakatoas eruption would add after some initial without-predictor dramatic 7 of 10. My question is how big would the Krakatao volcanoes erupt? Is it going to be greater force than the one in 1883? Would all these not create a huge havoc, if not prime, in the area of Sunda Straits, where the Krakatoas sit? Would the whole scheme not create a momentum that will activate the Krakatoas greatly? If it erupts at that point, would the eruption bigger than the 1883 eruption?

Will Krakatoa erupt, giving warning that the bending of the tongue holding Indonesia is about to begin? Surprisingly, the nervous volcanoes in Indonesia will not increase their eruption much beyond where they are today, during the elevation drop. The reason is because the pressure of plate movement is going elsewhere, in a different direction. Volcanoes erupt because magma is pushed into pockets near the surface, without an opportunity to escape into the general flow of magma that takes place under the plates. Rather than compress the tongue holding Indonesia, the dropping of the tongue allows this tongue to expand, to fan out under the curve of the Indo-Australian Plate. At the present time, the pockets under this edge of the tongue are increasingly compressed, thus the increased activity noted in Indonesian volcanoes recently.
