Indo-Australian Plate Movement Dynamics - 3D

These two blogs

stimulated me to produce a 3D model simulating Indo-Australian plate movement, which, i hope, will help to visualize it better.

Here is Indo-Australian plate, shown tipping at India side (blue) and rising on NZ side (red)

A plate tipping on one side would have an axis (pivot) of rotation in its horizontal plane.


Now, imagine Indo-Australian plate to be a giant rectangle of irregular shape - it is tipping on its diagonally opposite sides.





What i am trying to relate is that this plate tips in a complicated 3-dimensional way: its Indian edge generally lowers, while also tipping sideways a bit.


Imagine that you hold a rectangle with two hands at opposite corners (black lines) and you can rotate it along its axis, with two other corners turning up or down.




Now lets try to visualize it in 3D (as seen from northern side looking southeast):


and now let's add water:


This shows an uneven sinking, which cannot be accurately simulated by Google maps elevation (which  does not take into account plate tip).





[Some explanation, as it may be not so easy to grasp 3D visuals:


* the level (angle) of tilt is of course exagerrated

Plenty of movement on the Indo/Australian Plate with another mag 7.3+ earthquake

Tectonic Setting and Volcanoes of Papua New Guinea, New Britain, and the Solomon Islands

Tectonic microplates of the Melanesian region. 

Arrows show net plate motion relative to the Australian Plate. The volcanoes of New Britain are the result of subduction of the northward-migrating Solomon Sea Plate under the South Bismarck Plate. The volcanoes in the Solomon Islands are associated with the Solomon Sea Plate as it is subducted beneath the Pacific Plate. Two short spreading centers, one at the southeast margin of the Solomon Sea Plate and the other at the north edge of the South Bismarck Plate, influence volcanism at Kavachi (Solomon Islands) and the Admiralty Islands, respectively. Simplified from Hamilton (1979).

Listen to the waveform as audio, if you can.

Listening to the wave form as audio, Solomon earthquake doesn't seem to still calm down.

Here are last two quakes.

The 7 of 10 plate movements seem to be picking up the pace. The brake is lifting! Note that quakes in the Solomon Islands seem continuous, and are almost hand in hand with the large quakes in Chile.

These Zeta Talk links will explain the Queensland flooding

Are parts of Australia along the Queensland coast to be permanently flooded due to elevation loss now? There is a quote in the link below that references "this hanging on for 12 months"

The establishment is desperate to prevent awareness of the presence of Planet X in the inner solar system, and has agreed among themselves that blaming rain and storm surge for the sinking of land in Indonesia would be the first volley against the ZetaTalk message. Thus, in Asia, any type of flooding, whether there has been rain or not, is blamed on rain in the media. Unexpected was the flooding in Queensland, as this had not been mentioned by ourselves. Australia was not included in the news blackout issued to cover our 7 of 10 predictions, and thus news of this flooding hit the world. We have explained that the water wash backing up rivers along the eastern coast of Queensland is due to the tilting of the Indo-Australian Plate, but as this phenomena had not been expected, the establishment was taken by surprise.

What does this mean? Is this a permanent state of affairs? That would hardly be the case, as water finds its level and the water heaped around the eastern edge of the Indo-Australian Plate is flowing in many directions to this end. The rivers will soon be flowing to the sea, unimpeded, and the flood waters draining as rapidly as they arrived.
