ZetaTalk: Skew in Longitude/Latitude


Written September 10, 2011

About March 11 EQ M9.1 in Japan, why did the land move by about 24 m to the east-southeast, opposite direction?

The 7 of 10 scenarios will result in plate movements, as we have described. Plate borders that are folding under and over each other will cause their lands to reposition themselves, vs a vs the compass or the GPS system or latitude and longitude lines. The Pacific is compressing, which means that many countries will find their position has changed. As the Indo-Australian Plate plunges under the Himalayas, India will lose more than elevation, it may find itself skewing slightly to the northeast. Eastern Australia and New Zealand may find themselves with more than an increase in elevation, they may find themselves likewise skewed at an angle, shifting to the southwest.

As the Philippine and Mariana plates fold, any islands carried on the top edges of these plates will find themselves carried to the west. Certainly as the S America roll progresses the countries at the top of S America will find themselves not only out of synch with the GPS system due to the shift west, but likewise with a skew where they have dropped to the southwest slightly. Africa will certainly find itself dropped at an angle toward the southeast. And after the New Madrid adjustment, Mexico and the American southwest will find they are askew too.

And for the northern Pacific, which is likewise compressing, land on all sides of the Ring of Fire will be affected. Particularly for Japan, which is riding over the Pacific Plate at an angle, such that as the Pacific Plate pushes under Japan toward the northwest, the land will move to the southeast. The Eurasian Plate is ripping open, stretching, as we have described, and as the Kiev Trumpets clearly show. Thus the land, stretched in many areas across the Eurasian Plate, has moved to slide over the Pacific Plate, thus putting a portion of Japan's North Island measurably to the southeast.
