Is the Coral Sea bed rising? Is Lemuria returning?
Ron:Two tsunami buoys in the Coral Sea off the north east coast of Queensland gave alarms during early April, recording a rapid rise in the ocean floor beneath them. There are no active volcanoes in the Coral Sea area, undersea or above sea level. The buoys in question rode above the deep trench just north of the Coral Sea Islands.
Reports say that Tsunami Station 55023 - STB Coral Sea located at 14.803 S 153.585 E (14°48'9" S 153°35'6" E activated and went into event mode between 20 March and 13 April 2010. The Station was in event mode after the large earthquakes occurred in the area. The event mode was triggered by the buoys' anomalies of water column height above the sea floor. A data search for 20 March to 13 April apparently showed that in 24 days the distance from buoy to sea floor registered by the buoys declined by over 100 meters or 328 feet! That's an average of 13 feet per day since the quakes. The waves on the Cato Island, Coral Sea tide line graph for the period matches the tide lines perfectly so tides were not a factor.

The next nearest buoy is over 500 km away and has not been showing data since 17 March 2010. However from 16 March to 17 March its water level readins dropped 39 metres. Is this just a coincidence? And why is this buoy still out of service? A report on God Like Productions (GLP) stated that the last data shown on NDBC Station no. 55012 was:
‘2010 03 17 18 03 00 2 3306.652
2010 03 17 18 02 00 2 3306.996
2010 03 17 18 01 00 2 3306.731
2010 03 16 18 00 00 1 3328.704
2010 03 16 17 45 00 1 3328.670
2010 03 16 17 30 00 1 3328.630
diff of 72 feet in 24 hours!!
has not been on-line since it reached 3289m
that's overall diff of 127 foot.’
Some details of recorded readings for Station 55023 are at end Note 1.
There are only three Tsunami stations listed off the east coast of Australia – two opposite Vanuatu and one in the eastern approaches to Bass Strait. ALL three are listed as having no data in the last 8/24 hours and the two opposite Vanuatu have not had data since 23/4/10! See http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/index.shtml
The city of Cairns is situated on the Queensland coast almost on the same latitude as Vanuatu and slightly south and west of Tsunami Station 55023. The city centre of Cairns is at most two or three metres above sea level and many of its suburbs are also barely above sea level. It is said that the largest tsunamis come from volcanoes. If the Mt Garrat volcanoe*on Gaua Island or any other volcano in Vanuatu blows completely Cairns and much of the Queensland coast would have about two hours warning of a tsunami, provided that the Commonwealth of Australia’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) or other appropriate authorities give that warning immediately. Should Earth changes cause new eruptions to suddenly occur in the Coral Sea the city of Cairns and the adjacent coastal towns and settlements would have very little warning even if NOAA puts its Tsunami stations there back on line and promptly sounds the alarm.
* Mt Garrat is said to have erupted 500 years ago with the climatic effects being felt for two years. A lesser erruption is said to have occurred two decades ago.
The NOAA website [ http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/index.shtml ] had a Tsunami Station in event mode activated for Station 55023 - STB Coral Sea located at 14.803 S 153.585 E (14°48'9" S 153°35'6" E) on 13 April 2010.
According to his post on GLP Aussie GUY 937531 stated that:
‘… as at 23rd sep 2009 Station 55023 was recording an ocean depth of 4593; this stayed same +/- tides until 5th of April 2010 (Inc 9999's, faulty data).
‘I rang government yesterday while bouy was in active mode.
All of sudden data is removed and bouy reset.
now the (depth/pressure) shows 4413.
Where is the missing data from the 5th til 12th ????
Why was the data removed?’
After inquiries from the public, the NOAA administration responsible for Buoy #55023 announced that it must be defective and would be replaced. NOAA then deleted the data from public view. But more than one buoy was involved in giving the alarm and both buoys apparently recorded similar readings. Buoy #55012 also recorded a drop in the distance between the surface and the ocean floor. The rise in the sea floor was dramatic. A GodlikeProduction thread started intense discussion on the issue. See: http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message1036933/pg1
Subduction of the Indo-Australian Plate beneath the Eurasian Plate
It is speculated that the Indo-Australian Plate is moving north-west, colliding with and subducting beneath the Eurasian Plate. See: http://www.risingsunofnihon.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/ring-of-fire.gif and this movement is allegedly causing the Indo-Australian Plate to tip so that the western half of Australia will sink while the eastern seaboard will rise. However, the rate of movement of the Plate is so slow that it seems unlikely that that subduction is causing the rapid sea level rises recorded in the Coral Sea before the two NOAA buoys were taken off line, or at least their readings no longer made public.
In my view it is more likely that at least parts of Lemuria(2) are beginning to rise(3) with totally uncertain consequences for Australia and especially the east coast. In any event the seismic activity around Vanuatu and along the western boundary of the Pacific Ring of Fire in the southern hemisphere indicates that the east coast of Australia and especially the Queenslanc coast needs to be on alert for possible tsunamis generated there.

Re: OCEAN FLOOR RISING BY 13 FEET PER DAY HEREQuote
There is much data missing since the last time I checked it last evening. Most significant was the gap in data between 04/05 and 04/08 where the first and largest drop in water column pressure occurred.
Idon't know why the data already collected would disappear simply because the unit may not currently be working.
In a way it might be flattering to think maybe somebody may be viewing our little site. The cause and effect of this thread does seem a bit curious.'
