The Asian Tsunami two and a half years ago unleashed tremendous amount energy on the coastal regions around the Indian ocean. What do you think would’ve have happened to this energy if there had been no water to carry it away from the earthquake? 我的意思是, if the earthquake (of the same kind and magnitude) had taken place on land instead of the sea-bed as it did, presumably this energy would’ve been present. How would it have manifested? As a more violent earthquake? Or a longer one?
I picture the earthquake (in cross-section) as a cantilever spring being held down and then released. The spring then transfers the energy to the tsunami in the form of potential energy, as an increase in the water level. As the tsunami radiates out, it is only the potential energy that is transferred; 水不横向移动,,en,只有垂直,,en,因为它击中海岸,,en,潜在的能量被转移到海浪击打海岸动能,,en,水横向移动然后,,en,由于能量从震中传递幅度,,en,我猜测，如果有对转移的机制会有什么发生过,,en,有什么想法吗,,en,我张贴了这个问题，这是困扰着我，当我读到他们发现了银河系约,,en,十亿光年,,en,我这句话的理解是,,en,在距离,,en,十亿光年,,en,有一个星系,,en,十亿年前,,en,所以，我们可以看到现在从它的光,,en,这难道不意味着宇宙是至少,,en,十亿岁,,en,它必须采取有关星系,,en,十亿年才能达到它似乎是,,en, only vertically. As it hits the coast, the potential energy is transferred into the kinetic energy of the waves hitting the coast (water moving laterally then).
Given the magnitude of the energy transferred from the epicenter, I am speculating what would’ve happened if there was no mechanism for the transfer. Any thoughts?
