The disastrous earthquake and the tsunami

 

According to the plate tectonic theory the Himalayas should have risen after the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake. However, they sank.

According to my theory (www.nimpal.net) this outcome was expected.

If the North Pole has moved from Hudson Bay to the present place, as Charles Hapgood has suggested, the globe's surface rose in two quarters of the globe and sank in two other ones. The maximum uplift was almost 12 km at places 61.78N100E and 61.78S80W. The maximum subsidence, almost -12 km, was at places 28S100E and 28N80W

 

Figure 1.

The elevation difference makes magma move toward the adjacent place of the lowest elevation in every point of the globe. This process is going on and on, until the globe has achieved a shape close to an ellipsoid. The high mountain chain Himalayas blocked however the motion of magma, except trough a narrow pass along the meridian 100E where the pressure against Himalayas was the strongest because the distance between the points of the maximum elevation and the minimum one were the shortest. There the magma flow broke Himalayas and magma flows trough this narrow pass only.

Figure 2.

There the mountain chains have turned along with the magma flow into direction north-south (look at a map of 100E between 25N-35N). In the area, south of Himalayas, the motion of magma proceeded uninterruptedly toward the point 28S100E but got only small amount of compensating mass trough the narrow pass.

The pressure difference between north of Himalayas and south of it grew higher and higher until a huge amount of magma from a large area of the Tibetan plateau broke trough this narrow pass, causing the big tsunami.

The pressure on the Level of Compensation of Isostacy below Himalayas got lower and Himalayas sank not rose as it should be according to the tectonic theory. This phenomenon has took place many times earlier and will happen again.
